No matter what the work environment is, the BLACK BOX MicroSwitch gives you the power and versatility you need from a sub-LAN without the extra expenses of network operating software, servers, and network interface cards.

It's automatic. To use the MicroSwitch in a sub-LAN application, just order MicroSwitch LAN Software. It does file transfer, e-mail, and more. Even without the LAN software, the MicroSwitch can spool data from several input devices (like PCs) before sending it on to printers.

It's expandable. Standard memory is 64 KB, dynamically allocated. You can expand with 256 KB, 512 KB, or 1 MB Expansion Boards. Total memory capacity is 4 MB. And 8 models are available, from 3 ports up to 17, in serial, parallel, or combinations of both. You can choose the exact model for your system.

It's up to the demand. MicroSwitch can also handle port contention for a host or a modem without the need for a PC. You can share hosts just by connecting terminals.

A simple status command enables you to see queued jobs by source, destination, status, priority, and length. Up to 64 jobs can be queued at once. Time-outs keep one PC or terminal from monopolizing a port. Be sure to order the appropriate MicroSwitch Adapters for your application.
