PDF Icon Data Sheet


The SM-2402/04C Multiport Programmable Bypass Switch provides the ability to automatically bypass a malfunctioning network appliance.  The unit operates in a standalone mode or as an intelligent watchdog that expects periodic interaction with a properly-functioning network appliance via a serial communication link.  In the event of a failure, the unit removes the failing device from the Ethernet link.  After bypassing (removing) the failing device, the SM-2402/04C directly connects the two external Ethernet ports to reestablish end-to-end communications.  The unit is available in several configurations for end-user or OEM applications.
