PathWay® Model 7282 Dual Channel DB25 A/B Switch, Dual RS232 Remote, Dual Power Applications:

The drawing illustrates two channels of DB25 AB switching. Both channels are switched simultaneously. A COMMON Device is connected to the DB25 COMMON port with access to two other devices connected to the DB25 A and B ports for each channel. The illustration shows Dual DB9 Remote Control ports that accept ASCII RS232 commands as well as support multi-drop format. The diagram shows that the unit allows two external power supplies to be connected to the switch for redundancy.  See Multidrop features.
