RJ Series Switching Systems

The RJ Series of computer controlled switching systems are designed for physical layer switching of multiwire signals om RJ style connectors. Since the system uses mechanical relays it acts exactly like a piece of cable which makes it perfect for testing networks without altering the signals or regeneration. These systems are typically used for Ethernet LAN 10BaseT through 10KBaseT, DSL, CAT5 through CAT6A cable testing, USB up to 2.0, RS422 up to 8 wire and many other applications switched over RJ45 connectors up to 8 wires. They may also be used as lab automation switches, network testing switches, patch panels, network redundancy switches or any number of physical layer applications.

Control options include:

  • 10/100BaseT Ethernet LAN
  • IEEE488 Bus (GPIB)
  • RS232
  • USB
  • Manual Control Optional

The units are available as either single chassis mainframes with dedicated control modules or up to 16 chassis may be controlled from a Mesa Control chassis at a single IP address, GPIB address or Serial control port

RJV Switch Modules

Product Details ( pdf Bulletin )

These switch modules use 2 pole relays to provide up to four pairs based on the EIA/TIA 568 pin out for RJ45 connectors. Modules may be ordered switching one to four pairs. Pairs are pins 1-2, 3-6, 4-5, and 7-8. The most common configurations are 4 or 8 wire modules.

RJV/12x1-TX Modules have a 12x1 mux configuration that also allows signals to be switched to the backplane to form 24x1, 36x1 or 48x1 configurations.
Hot switch +/- 200 Volts, +/- 2 amps. Total of up to 60 Watts.
Will hot switch PoE signals without adaptors!
Passes all CAT5E cable tests.
Switch 2, 4 or all 8 wires.
CAT5E RJ45 connectors.


RJV/12x1-CAT6A Modules have a 12x1 mux configuration. Cannot be switched to backplane.
Hot switch +/- 200 Volts, +/- 2 amps. Total of up to 60 Watts.

Passes all CAT6A cable tests.
Switch 2, 4 or all 8 wires.
CAT6A RJ45 connectors.


RJV/4(2x1) Modules have four independent 2x1 switch sections that operate as Normally Closed / Normally Open and can be used to sub mux other modules or redundancy / failsafe / fall over switches for network protection and back-up. Cannot be switched to backplane.
Hot switch +/- 200 Volts, +/- 2 amps. Total of up to 60 Watts.
Will hot switch PoE signals without adaptors!
Passes all CAT6 cable tests.
Switch 2, 4 or all 8 wires.

RJV/6x4-4 Modules have a 6x4 four wire matrix configuration that also allows signals to be switched to the backplane to form 12x4, 18x4 or 24x4 configurations.
Hot switch +/- 200 Volts, +/- 2 amps. Total of up to 60 Watts.
Will hot switch PoE signals without adaptors!
Switch 2 or 4 wires, pins 1-2 and 3-6 per 10/100 Ethernet.
CAT5E RJ45 connectors.
