The PathWay® Model 7125 DB9 A/B Automatic Fallback switch with Contact Closure Remote Port allows the user the capability of sharing a single port interface device connected to the "COMMON" port among two other devices connected to the "A" (PRIMARY) and "B" (SECONDARY) ports with remote control access functionality. Remote Control access can be accomplished through Contact Closure REMOTE port. The PathWay® Model 7125 is enclosed in a 1U, full rack size, all metal black chassis designed to provide EMI/RFI shielding and fit in a standard 19" rack.

When in Automatic Fallback Mode (AUTO), the unit monitors data activity on the PRIMARY port. If activity is lost, the unit switches to the SECONDARY port (B). The Model 7125 willl maintain its connection to the SECONDARY port (B) until data activity is detected on the PRIMARY port (A), at which time the unit will automatically return to the "A" position. If no data is present on either the PRIMARY port (A) or on the SECONDARY port (B), the unit will stay in the "B" position and continue to monitor for data. The user can override Automatic Fallback operation from the front panel or from the Remote Port and force the unit to operate as an A/B switch.

Wide Range Power Option Available:  (Cat No. 517277) CE, RoHS, and UL listed table mount power module, 100VAC/240VAC, 50/60Hz for use in place of the standard power module that is included with the unit.  Has IEC 60320 C14 inlet.  Ideal for international applications.
