Redundancy Switch RSW100


In a system with two servers running in redundant mode, the RSW100 can switch peripheral devices from the failing server to the standby server.

The internal controller is capable of switching multiple interfaces from one server PC to another server PC. For this purpose RSW100 is controlled by both server PCs over serial interfaces (connectors “Control” for PC1 and PC2).

RSW100 allows to switch up to 5 serial interfaces (maximum 4-pin), 1 LAN interface (100BASE-T), and 1 USB interface (USB 2.0)

Multiple RSW100 can be cascaded by means of the extension connector (“Extension”). Over an alarm relay (changeover contact, connector “Alarm”), the RSW100 can report an error condition to a management system.
