Network disasters are impossible to predict, but can be effectively controlled with the AFS. It's job is to closely monitor activity on primary hardware lines. In the event that the line changes state, the AFS quickly responds and re-routes data signals to a backup line. Your lost data and downtime is cut to a bare minimum.Application Diagram

The system is designed for applications that require automatic routing of analog or digital signals between a common jack and an A and B jack. It is ideal for switching RS232, RS422/485, Ethernet/UTP or telephone lines.

The system consists of a Card Rack, a plug-in Power Supply Module, and RS-232 Command Port Card and up to 16 Switch Cards. Each card is capable of switching all 8 pins of a common RJ45 jack between jacks "a" and "b". Each card can be switched manually or by command. The RS-232 command port can be connected to a modem to enter set-up parameters, execute switching commands or view status of the unit's parameters from remote sites.
