Part Number: IPX
Title: AUTOMATIC IP NETWORK LOSS BACKUP A/B SWITCH
Category: Data Transmission Products
Industry: CCTV/Security

The IPX A/B switch monitors the communications path on any IP network and automatically switches to an alternate network path when a loss of signal occurs on the primary path. This network switch will identify the loss of any IP data signal due to removal of an IP camera or modem, loss of power, a cable disconnect, or a defective camera or modem output.

This unit has separate detection and A/B switching sections so you can detect a loss on one network and switch another totally different network if you need to.

AUTOMATIC IP NETWORK LOSS BACKUP A/B SWITCH

The IPX A/B switch monitors the communications path on any IP network and automatically switches to an alternate network path when a loss of signal occurs on the primary path. This network switch will identify the loss of any IP data signal due to removal of an IP camera or modem, loss of power, a cable disconnect, or a defective camera or modem output. The unit detects the loss of data communication on the network for any reason such as power loss, or equipment failure, broken shorted or disconnected wire cables and tampering of any kind. The IPX continuously displays the Data condition of the primary network with an L.E.D. indicator and a relay contact output for external alarms or it can be jumper programmed for a low voltage DC output to control other equipment relays. Use it to monitor your IP cameras or any IP network signal and switch to a secondary source for continuous data communications.

Normally Open or Normally Closed Alarm contacts are provided to send an alarm or activate equipment when loss of data on the primary network occurs. These contacts are field programmable for Normally Open or Normally Closed contact operation. Connect this unit to a local alarm panel to alert monitor personnel that a network is being tampered with or send a message to a remote site by connecting the alarm output to external dialing equipment. The A/B relay switch inputs and output are all accessible to match any switching configurations.

The IPX A/B switch can be connected anywhere in the network path where an alternate network path is available. The “High Impedance Loop through Input” will not affect the data signal even if the power fails and it passes the P.O.E. Power Over Ethernet on all wires of the active channel. P.O.E is disconnected on the failed data path.

Use this unit in any network installation that requires guaranteed continuous communication. The IPX has an easy mounting flange that will mount to any surface with just two screws and is supplied with a 12 VDC power cube.

This unit has separate detection and A/B switching sections so you can detect a loss on one network and switch another totally different network if you need to.
