Hall Research Technologies SW-VRS232-2S switch
Hall Research Technologies announces the release of the model SW-VRS232-2S, a dual PC video and RS-232 switch with a remote user option. This switch is used to allow one or two users access to the selected PC’s serial RS-232 port and VGA video signal. A typical usage for this device would be to route one or two touchscreen displays to one or two PCs. When the unit is set up with two user locations, either side can automatically access the selected PC simply by touching the screen. This is made possible by the unit’s automatic RS-232 switching mechanism. One Cat-5 cable is used to extend the video and the other is used to extend bidirectional RS-232 and supply power to the remote wallplate. The user at the local station can switch between the two PCs by simply pushing a button on the unit’s front panel. LED indicators provide feedback as to which PC input is selected. The remote station controls the same PC as the local.
