Share Any DB9 Interface Devices with the Model 7201 ABCD Switch

February 4, 2011

For Immediate Release



Electro Standards Laboratories, Cranston, RI, announces the PathWay® Model 7201 DB9 Interface 4-Position Data Switch that provides switching in a compact, desktop unit.  The Model 7201 allows the user the capability of sharing a single DB9 interface device connected to the Common port among four other devices connected to the A, B, C, and D ports. This switch switches all 9 pins of the DB9 interface and can be used to switch any DB9 interface device.


The Model 7201 can be switched locally by using its front panel pushbutton or remotely from the DB9/female RS232 serial interface remote port located on the rear of the unit.  The front panel LED display indicates the switch position and unit power status.

The Model 7201 is transparent to data speed and format. The switch retains last switch position in the event of power loss and continues to pass data. The switch is enclosed in an attractive anodized packaging that provides EMI/RFI shielding.
