RJ Series Switching Systems

The RS Series computer controlled switching systems are designed to switch multi-wire groups of signal up to 25 wires. These systems are typically used for signals such as parallel TTL, RS232, RS422, WAN or modems, but can also be used for any group of analog or digital signals having a bandpass up to 30 MHz or a data rate up to 20 Mbps. A modular design concept is used that provides configuration flexibility by allowing display modules, different control modules and switch modules to be combined into a single chassis.

LED displays and switch point status feedback are available on most systems. Computer control via IEEE488 (GPIB) and RS232 is standard, while TCP/IP Ethernet LAN, USB and manual controls are optionally available.

RS16 Front Panel

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

RS Series




RS/16 Front Panel with Manual Control


RS/16 Rear Panel RS configuration

RS/16 Chassis

Product Details ( pdf Bulletin )

These Chassis controls up to 16 switch modules with 9 to 25 wires switched per module. They are basically used to make a 9 to 25 wire 1x16 mux with D9, D15 or D25 connectors. LEDs on the front panel show switch and power status. Add up to 16 Switch Modules and a Control Module to complete the system. Push button manual control on the front panel is optional.

Dimensions: 19" Rack Mount (483 mm) 15" deep (381 mm) 3.5" ( 2 RU ) high (90 mm)
Weight: 10 to 20 lbs (4 to 9 Kg) max AC Power : 75 Watts max. 110/220 selectable.

DC to 100 MHz bandpass
9, 15 or 25 wire switch modules with D connectors.
Completely bidirectional, acts like a piece of cable.
One to one connector pin out.
LAN, GPIB, USB, RS232 or Manual Control

RSM/128 Front


RSM/128 Rear Panel

RSM/128-MF Chassis

Product Details ( pdf Bulletin )

These Chassis controls up to 16 8x1 modules, 32 4x1 modules or any combination or configuration such as a 16x8 matrix, 32x4 matrix or two 16x4 matrices. Matrix configurations are non-blocking and physical layer switches act like a cable connection with D connectors creating a one to one connection between D9, D15 or D25 connectors. All wires are switched as a group on each connector for easy programming. LEDs on the front panel show switch and power status. Add Switch Modules, Driver Modules and a Control Module to complete the system.

Dimensions: 19" Rack Mount (483 mm) 15" deep (381 mm) 7" ( 4 RU ) high (180 mm)
Weight: 15 to 35 lbs (7 to 16 Kg) max AC Power : 150 Watts max. 110/220 selectable.

DC to 50 MHz
1x8 or dual 1x4 Switch Modules switching 9, 15 or 25 wires in groups.
D9, D15 or D25 connectors
LAN, GPIB, USB, RS232 or Manual Control
Mechanical relays for physical layer switching ( acts like a cable ).
