  • Instantly detects lapses in the primary line, then switches to a backup line.
  • Use it as a line sharer with automatic flow control.
  • Front-panel LEDs show you system status at a glance.

  • Further Details

    Keep leased-line failures from costing you time and money. The instant the RS-232 Fallback Switch detects a lapse in the primary line, it switches your system to a backup line. As soon as signal is restored, it switches back to the primary line. The switch can support data rates as high as your RS-232 line can carry.
