RJ Series Switching Systems

The RJ Series of computer controlled switching systems are designed for physical layer switching of multiwire signals on RJ style connectors. Since the system uses mechanical relays it acts exactly like a piece of cable which makes it perfect for testing networks without altering the signals or regeneration. These systems are typically used for Ethernet LAN 10BaseT through 1000BaseT, DSL including ASML through GFAST, CAT5 through CAT6A cable testing, USB up to 2.0, RS232, RS422, RS485 up to 8 wire at 20 Mbps and many other applications switched over RJ45 connectors up to 8 wires. They may also be used as lab automation switches, network testing switches, patch panels, network redundancy switches or any number of physical layer applications.

Control options include:

The units are available as either single chassis mainframes with dedicated control modules or up to 16 chassis may be controlled from a Mesa II Control chassis at a single IP address, GPIB address or Serial control port
