2. Introduction
The R5000 SwitchMaster® Switching System is a 2U 19” rack style chassis containing multiple A/B Switch Cards.
Each switch card connects port A or port B to port C, through latching telecommunication relays (except the fiber
optic switches described below). The R5000 rack has 18 slots and can accept any mix of switch cards, power supply
cards, and one Controller Card (one required per chassis). Any type of card can be installed in any slot in the R5000
rack, allowing for maximum flexibility of cable routing etc. If a single slot power supply card (such as the 5100740)
is used, the rack can hold up to 16 A/B Switch Cards, and a Controller Card. Each A/B Switch Card can be
individually switched, or the entire rack can be switched from the Controller Card. The Controller Card has a keyed
switch to enable and disable manual switching (disables the front panel toggle switches on the Controller Card and
on each switch card). The Controller Card has two RJ11 ports which provide for serial communications to the rack,
and also allow multiple racks to be daisy-chained together to create a single system that can be controlled by the first
rack in the daisy chain. The Controller Card also provides remote switching capabilities via an RS232 interface or
using a +/- 12 VDC signal from a remote toggle switch.
The Controller Card consists of a front pc board assembly and a rear pc board assembly set, and is available in three
different versions (RS232, SNMP/Ethernet, and SNMP Expansion). The RS232 version supports Rack and System
Gang Switching using the manual toggle switches on the Controller Card and A/B Switch Cards, and supports RS232
communications on the gang-in and gang-out connectors. The RS232 Controller Card allows system level (all cards
in all racks) switching with serial commands (see section 5.1 for additional info). The SNMP/Ethernet capable
version features a RS232 terminal interface which can be used to control individual A/B switch cards, a rack of A/B
switch cards, or system of daisy-chained racks, and to configure the Ethernet port parameters (see section 7 for
additional info). The Ethernet port allows the rack or system of daisy-chained racks (containing the SNMP
Expansion Controller Card) to be controlled using SNMP commands, Telnet commands, or via a built-in html based
web browser interface. There can only be one SNMP/Ethernet capable Controller Card in a daisy-chained system of
racks, and it must be in the first rack in the system. If daisy-chaining one or more racks from an SNMP/Ethernet
capable rack, the additional racks must have an SNMP Expansion Controller Card, which is compatible with the
message format from the SNMP/Ethernet Controller Card.
Fiber Optic A/B Switch Cards are available in both latching and non-latching styles. Please refer to the part number
chart on the cover of this manual for specific part numbers for latching and non-latching fiber optic switch cards.
Latching switch cards retain their selected connections even when power is lost or removed. Non-latching fiber optic
switch cards fall back to the “Port C to Port A” connection when power is removed or fails, regardless of which port
is selected prior to the removal or failure of power When power is re-applied, the optical switch in a non-latching
fiber optic switch card will reconnect port C to the port (A or B) that was selected prior to the loss of power. The
non-latching styles of fiber optic switch cards are often used when a fall-back or “failover” style of connection
scheme is desired in the event of power failure.

3. Configuration
3.1 A/B Switch Card Configuration
Figure 3.1.1 – Typical A/B Switch Card Front & Rear Panels
Each A/B Switch Card has an 8-position DIP switch, used to set the card’s address. Switch position 1 is the least
significant bit, and position 8 is the most significant bit. Set each switch ON (as marked) for a '0', and OFF for a '1'.
Card address 1 for example, would be DIP switch position 1 OFF, and positions 2-8 ON. Card addresses within a
rack, or within a system of daisy-chained racks must be unique and one card MUST be addressed 1. Card address
0x00 is reserved and must not be used. A typical approach is to set rack 0x01, card addresses to 0x01 through 0x10
from left to right within the rack. In the second rack 0x02, set the card addresses to 0x11 through 0x20 and so on.
The Controller Card communicates with the individual switch cards using a multi-drop scheme. If two A/B cards
within the same rack or daisy-chained system of racks have the same address, both will try to respond at the same
time, causing communication errors. Thus, the maximum number of A/B Switch Cards in a daisy-chained system of
racks is limited to 255 switch cards.

The Controller Card rear pc board assembly has two jumpers for shielding and grounding options. The two 3position jumpers are positioned such that pin 1 is toward the card edge connector, and pin 3 is toward the RJ11
connectors. Each 3-position jumper has a 2-position shunt, used to connect two of the three positions together.

Note: The functions of pins 3 and 4, on the GANG-IN port, are set using jumpers on the front card. They can be
configured as TXD and RXD for serial communication, or as V+ and V- to control the system control input with a
remote toggle switch. The connections to V+ and V- are through 1 K ohm resistors. The System Control signal is
used as an input and an output. As an Input signal it is normally open. This input is driven to +12 VDC to switch
the system to A, and is driven to –12 VDC to switch the system to B. As an output, this signal is driven to +10 VDC
when the user initiates a system switch to A, and is driven to –10 VDC when the user initiates a system switch to B.

3.3 Controller Card Front PC Board Configuration
The Controller Card front pc board has an 8-position dipswitch and four jumpers for user configurable options. The
four 3-position jumpers are positioned such that pin 1 is toward the front panel, and pin 3 is toward the rear of the
card. Each 3-position jumper has a 2-position shunt, used to connect two of the three positions together.

Jumpers W4 and W5 function as a pair to configure the input port source. It should not be necessary to change these
jumpers from their factory set positions. These jumpers configure the source for communications to the internal
processor on the Controller Card. If you have a Controller Card with an optional SNMP/Ethernet network module
installed, both jumpers should be set to connect pins 2 and 3. Otherwise both jumpers should be set to connect pins
1 and 2 to allow the processor to communicate with the RS-232 signals from the GANG-IN port.
The 8-position dipswitch has a different function depending on the type of Controller Card. Refer to Table 3.3.3 for
the RS232 version only. The SNMP/Ethernet and SNMP Expansion versions use this dip switch to set the rack
address.

When the security code is enabled, the selected security character must precede any serial commands received at the
gang in port of the first rack in the system. The security code must be disabled on all following racks. Refer to
section 5.1 for a list of applicable serial commands.
Safe mode operation prevents switching commands from the gang-in port, allowing only status request commands.
This provides a level of protection against corrupt or spurious data causing unintended switching in an application
where only status is required of the gang-in port. Set safe mode OFF to allow A/B switching from the gang-in serial
port. Safe mode must be disabled (OFF) on racks connected to the gang-out port of another R5000 rack, to allow
system switching to occur (otherwise system switching will be blocked from higher level racks).
Dip switch positions 7 and 8 are reserved for future development, and should be left in the OFF position.
For the SNMP/Ethernet and SNMP Expansion Controller Cards, the 8-position dipswitch SW2 is used to define the
Controller Card (or rack) address. Rack addresses within the system must be unique, but may be repeated in other
systems. The rack address space and card address space are separate, i.e. racks and cards can have the same address.
It is necessary that address “00” be left unused, and recommended that the racks be assigned addresses “01” through
“FF”. The network Controller Card communicates with other Controller Cards using a multi-drop scheme. If two
racks within the same system have the same address, both will try to respond at the same time, causing
communication errors. Switch position 1 is the least significant bit, and position 8 is the most significant bit. Set
each switch ON (as marked) for a '0', and OFF for a '1'. Address 1 for example would be position 1 OFF, and
positions 2-8 ON.

4. Installation
The A/B Switch Cards consist of a single card, which is inserted from the rear of the rack. The Controller Card
consists of a front card and a rear card.
4.1 Controller Card Rear PC Board Installation
4.1.1 Using the card guides, carefully slide the rear card into the rack, until it makes connection to the 8-position
socket on the rack backplane.
4.1.2 Secure the rear card to the rack at the top and bottom of the card, using the screws provided.
4.1.3 Using standard RJ11 male/male crossover cable, connect the gang out from one rack to the gang in connector
on the next if multiple racks are to be daisy-chained together. Repeat this step until all racks have been
connected.
4.2 Controller Card Front PC Board Installation
4.2.1 Using the card guides, carefully slide the front card into the rack, until it makes connection to the 36-position
card edge connector on the rear card.
4.2.2 Secure the front card to the rack at the top and bottom of the card, using the screws provided.
4.3 A/B Switch Card Installation
4.3.1 From the rear of the rack, using the card guides, carefully slide the card into the rack, until it makes
connection to the 8-position socket on the rack backplane.
4.3.2 Secure the rear card to the rack at the top and bottom of the card, using the screws provided.
4.3.3 If not already in place, secure the front panel to the rack, using the screws provided.
5. Operation
When power is applied to the Controller Card, the PWR LED should illuminate.
When power is applied to the A/B Switch Card, either the "A" LED or the "B" LED should illuminate to indicate the
currently connected port.
When the Key-Lock switch on the Controller Card is OFF, the manual toggle switches on the Controller Card and all
the A/B Switch Cards in the rack will be disabled. Note that the rack may still switch in response to a command
received on the RS232 Gang-In port, or the Ethernet port.
When the Key-Lock switch on the Controller Card is ON, the manual toggle switches in the rack function normally.
The toggle switches on the A/B Switch Cards are used to switch only that card. Hold the switch in the “A” position
to connect Port A to Port C. The “A” LED will illuminate when the switch operation has been completed. Release
the switch when switching has finished. Hold the switch in the “B” position to connect Port B to Port C. The “B”
LED will illuminate when the switch operation has been completed. Release the switch when switching has finished.
The toggle switch on the Controller Card is used to switch all cards in the rack, and is operated in the same fashion
as the individual toggle switches on the A/B Switch Cards. To switch an entire system of daisy-chained racks, hold
the “system” push-button while operating the toggle switch on the Controller Card.
The Controller Card STAT LED should blink under the following conditions:
The front panel control switches are used to initiate a “rack” or “system” level switching operation.
The Controller Card received a switch command on the RS232 Gang-In port or the Ethernet port.

5.1 RS-232 Serial Switching
The RS232 version of the Controller Card allows the user to remotely switch all of the cards in a rack or system of
daisy-chained racks using the serial commands listed in Table 5.1.1 below. The SNMP/Ethernet version of the
Controller Card does not support the one character serial commands listed in Table 5.1.1 below, but instead uses the
enhanced console commands listed in Section 7 of this manual. Also note that the data rate of the Gang-In port
increases to 9600 bps for the SNMP/Ethernet version of Controller Card. The SNMP Expansion Controller Card
does not support the one character serial commands listed in Table 5.1.1 below, but will pass these commands
through to the cards in the rack and to subsequent racks in the system.
Table 5.1.1 – RS-232 System Switching Commands (RS232 version of Controller Card)
Command
A <CR>
B <CR>
S <CR>
Description
Switch “system” to A
Switch “system” to B
Request “status”
Notes:
1. The RS232 terminal device connected to the RS232 version of Controller Card’s Gang-In port must be set to
2400 Baud, No Parity, 8 Data Bits, 1 Stop Bit. Connect using the supplied DB9 to RJ11 adapter and RJ11 to
RJ11 crossover cable.
2. The one character commands above are CASE SENSITIVE, and must be followed by a carriage return. Refer
to table 3.3.3 for a list of optional “security” characters which may precede these commands.
3. Note: These RS232 commands only allow control of the entire system, thus the status of all cards in the system
should be the same. Therefore, only one card (address 0x01) in the first rack will respond to the “S” status
command. If there is no card with address 0x01 in the first rack, there will be no response to the status
command.
5.2 “SYSTEM” Switching Using the Gang-In System Control Signal
The System Control signal is used as an input and an output. As an Input signal it is normally open. This input is
driven to +12 VDC to switch the system to A, and is driven to –12 VDC to switch the system to B. The input circuit
requires approximately 1 mA to operate properly.
As an output, this signal is driven to +10 VDC when the user initiates a system switch to A, and is driven to –10
VDC when the user initiates a system switch to B. To protect the output circuits, the output goes through a 1 K ohm
resistor. Therefore, this output should not be used to drive a large load.
The gang-in connector normally accepts RS-232 input signals, but can be configured to supply +12 VDC and –12
VDC. Refer to table 3.3.1 for jumper configuration information. These +12 VDC and –12 VDC outputs are
provided through 1 K ohm resistors, and therefore should not be used to drive large loads. These outputs are
provided to allow system switching, using only a remote contact. It is recommended that a momentary toggle switch
be used.

6. Network Setup
To perform the initial setup of an SNMP/Ethernet version of Controller Card, you will need a serial terminal capable
of 9600 baud, no parity, 8 data bits, and 1 stop bit. Connect this terminal to the GANG-IN port using the supplied
DB9 to RJ11 adapter and RJ11 to RJ11 crossover cable.

Apply power to the R5000 rack. The SNMP/Ethernet version of Controller Card requires 30-40 seconds to boot up,
while performing self tests and configuring.
After this process is complete you will see a sign-on message displayed on the serial console, i.e.

console ready.
>
At this point the Controller Card is ready for the low level configurations necessary before you will be able to
communicate with the network port using TCP/IP. You will need to enter an IP address, subnet mask, and gateway
address, as well as read and write SNMP community names if using SNMP, a telnet password for telnet access, or a
web password for browser access. These parameters must be saved into non-volatile memory, and then the system
must be reset to allow it to reconfigure with the new settings. Any time one or more of these parameters is changed,
they must be saved followed by a system reset. The following shows a typical setup session. Change the entered
parameters to suit your application requirements. All the console level commands available are described in detail in
section 7.
>set ipaddress 192.168.1.200
OK
>set subnetmask 255.255.255.0
OK
>set readcommunityname public
OK
>set writecommunityname private
OK
>save
OK
>reset
restarting …
After the system reinitializes, you will again be greeted by the sign-on message as before. At this time you can attach
a 10base-T CAT5 cable between the Controller Card’s Network port and an available port on your hub, and the
SNMP/Ethernet version of Controller Card will respond to SNMP and HTTP messages at the assigned IP address.
See the MIB Path Summary for a list of SNMP variables and their functions.

7. Console Commands (SNMP/Ethernet version of Controller Card)
When the R5000 powers up, it will send a sign-on message followed by a prompt character “>” to your serial
terminal device, set at 9600 baud, no parity, 8 data bits, and 1 stop bit. After each command is executed, the
associated response from the R5000 will be issued followed by a prompt character. For systems where the console
port is being commanded by software, the software should wait for this prompt character before sending each and
every command to the R5000.
It is possible to switch one or all of the switch ports to the A or B connection state using the appropriate serial
commands. It is also possible to query the position of any one of the switch ports in a particular rack using serial
commands. The RS232 serial interface is NOT affected by the position of the front panel keylock switch – it will act
upon and respond to commands it receives even if the keylock switch is in the DISABLE position.
The following commands are available from the RS232 console prompt of an SNMP/Ethernet version of Controller
Card. All commands are case insensitive, although several variable parameters are case sensitive (read/write
community names and web password). GET, SET, SYSTEM, RACK, and PORT can all be abbreviated by the first
letter of the command. This allows shorthand entry of switching commands to be compatible with the serial only
control version of the Controller Card.
