There are two remote ports; a DB9 Remote for RS232 Serial commands to control the switch, an RJ45 10/100 Base-T LAN connection for Telnet commands or an easy-to-use graphical user interface that is a password protected remote.
- Allows quick connection to any one of two DB9 interface devices from one COMMON port for each channel.
- The switch ports are transparent to all data.
- All (9) pins of the DB9 interface are switched via break-before-make electromechanical relays.
- Independent control of each channel, with gang controls.
- Front panel pushbutton control.
- Switch maintains position on power loss and continues to pass data.
- Control of the switch position from a 10/100-Base-T LAN Ethernet environment.
- Remote Control RS232, Telnet command interface or Graphical User Interface that allow the user to control switch position, lockout front panel operations and obtain switch status.
- Remote control of the switch is password protected, where the password protection can be disabled.
- Front panel LED's display present position and power status.
- Attractive all metal black box packaging provides EMI/RF shielding.
- Custom length DB9 cables available for your switch installation.
The PathWay® Model 7369 Dual Channel A/B switch with RS232, Telnet and GUI 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" and "B" ports for each channel. Remote Control access can be accomplished using an Ethernet 10/100Base-T connection and Graphical User Interface. The unit can also be controlled via RS232 ASCII commands through the Rear Panel DB9 Remote Port. The Model 7369 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.
UTILIZING THE USER FRIENDLY REMOTE GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE SOFTWARE
To connect to the switch from a workstation or computer having access to the LAN that the Model 7369 LAN port is connected to, simply launch a standard web browser and type in the appropriate IP address. The Java Applet will be automatically uploaded from the switch upon connection. The environment requirement for the GUI is Java 1.7 and above.
LOGGING into the GUI
Once logged in, the user can perform one of several actions:
- Change the switch position.
- Lockout control of the switch's front panel.
- Change the login password.
- Enable or Disable password protection.
- Re-configure the switch's IP address.
Figure 1: Logging into the GUI
- Access User Interface via standard Web browser.
- Easy to use, simple point and click operation.
- Remotely access to control or monitor the Model 7369 Switch.
- Users can change the switch's IP address.
- LAN access gives users across the LAN or over the Internet access to control if user network is configured accordingly.
CHANGING SWITCH POSITION AND LOCK STATUS
To change the switch position of a channel, click on the radio button "A" or "B" as desired for each channel. Locking and unlocking the front panel pushbutton can be done by clicking on the "Locked" or "Unlocked" radio buttons for each channel. See Figure 2
Figure 2: Change the position & lockout from the GUI.
USING GANG CONTROLS
Gang controls can be used to change the position or state of all channels simultaneously. When both channels are in the same position or state, that position or state will be selected by the gang controls. If one of the channels is in a different position or state, that respective gang control will not have either option selected. See Figure 3.
Figure 3: Gang Control, change all channels simultaneously.
QUERYING THE STATUS OF THE UNIT
Once connected, the GUI will stay up-to-date on the current position and status of the unit. Any changes that are made outside the GUI, such as by pushbutton, will be reflected in the GUI. These changes will cause the radio buttons of the GUI to automatically change to show the new status. The GUI will report the source of the most recent change in the bottom left of the panel. See Figure 4
