Western Telematic code activated switches are designed for data-distribution applications where any singular RS-232 device requires instantaneous, high-speed access or transmission to multiple RS-232 peripheral devices. Whether you need to broadcast stock market quotes to multiple display monitors, load program information to NC equipment or send print jobs to multiple bar code or label printers, the CAS switches are ideal for your application. If you need to send data over longer distances, optional RS-422 output channels are available to increase the send/receive distance up to 1 mile.


CAS-41A Application Diagram

The CAS unit monitors data received at the master control port and watches for the proper ASCII code sequence to select the desired port. The ASCII code sequence employs a defined prefix code and a port select code. When the port is selected, data and flow-control signals pass between the Master and selected slave port. The prefix code can be set to require one, two, four or eight control characters. The port select code designates the desired port and allows data to pass between it and the control port until the next prefix/port select code is detected. The CAS units also feature a broadcast capability that enables the control port to transmit simultaneously to all output ports.

Includes Enterprise Management Software

console server with enterprise management software

All WTI console server products include WTI’s convenient Enterprise Management Software, which drastically simplifies the task of managing multiple console servers spread throughout your network infrastructure. The WMU Enterprise Management Software provides a centralized command interface that allows administrators to easily manage, label and control multiple WTI console servers in large network applications, reducing the time required to access console port command functions on connected devices.

Once installed on your PC or laptop, the Enterprise Management Software can search a user-defined IP address range on your network and discover all WTI console servers within the range. Discovered units are then added to the Enterprise Management Software’s inventory, allowing administrators to assign a descriptive tag to each console server in order to denote the location or function of the device. In addition to providing a centralized interface for remote console port access, the Enterprise Management Software can also be used to control firmware updates for WTI products and edit and manage user accounts at individual or multiple WTI console servers.
