Product overview
The EtherSwitch 7F is a heavy duty, high speed unmanaged network switch that supports simultaneous computer
connections. Designed to satisfy the requirement of entertainment touring applications, the EtherSwitch 7F is equipped with
one OpticalCon fibre optic connector supporting 1000Mbps, and seven shielded Ethercon (RJ45) ports supporting 10 / 100 /
1000 Mbps bandwidth in full-duplex mode. This stand-alone unit enables the concurrent use of various multimedia devices
within a network without traffic restrictions.
The unique Magic Box interlocking enclosure facilitates easy rack mounting when used in single units or pairs, and easy
truss mounting via captive nut insert. Rack mounting brackets are available in single unit and dual unit versions, enabling
you to customize your equipment rack or your installation by mixing and matching different Magic Box interface.
2. Operation
2.1 Unpacking the units
The EtherSwitch 7F package includes 1 EtherSwitch unit, a power cord and a Quick Start Guide. We recommend that you
keep the original packaging in case items need to be returned.
2.2 Power
Power for the EtherSwitch 7F is connected through a male IEC chassis connector with input rating of 100-240V AC, 5060Hz. There is no power button and plugging into the power outlet will immediately power the unit on.
2.3 OpticalCon Fibre Optic and RJ45 Ethercon Ports
The single OpticalCon fibre optic port at the rear panel supports 1000Mbps, and the 7 shielded RJ45 Gigabit Ethercon ports
(2 x front panel; 5 x rear panel) support network speeds of 10Mbps / 100Mbps / 1000 Mbps which operate in half/full
duplex transfer modes. The EtherSwitch 7F system utilises CAT5e cable to send and receive data in all IEEE 802.3 protocol,
supports automatic MDI/MDIX crossover detection, and will automatically detect the settings of the external device
immediately upon connection.
Send and receive data (all IEEE 802.3 protocol) to and from an external source through any of the seven shielded RJ45
Ethercon ports and one OpticalCon fibre optic port.

Activity LED Indicators
1.
The LED indicator for power at the front panel will light up (Green) when the EtherSwitch 7F is receiving power,
otherwise, it is off.
2.
Cable diagnostic will start upon power up, which will determine if the Ethernet cables connected support 1000Mbps
and a successful link is present. This process is indicated by the Speed LED corresponding to each of the 8 ports
blinking (Green) sequentially.
The initial port scan takes about 10 seconds. A detected cable fault or no link present will be indicated by the
corresponding port’s Speed LED glowing (Amber) for 5 seconds after the initial port scan.
A good cable connection will be indicated by the corresponding port’s Speed LED glowing (Green) for 5 seconds.
The EtherSwitch 7F will then reset for normal operation.
3.
The Speed LED indicators (Top) at the front panel that corresponds to each port number will light up (Green) when a
secure connection is present.
The Activity LED (Bottom) will light up steady with a successful link and blink when reception or transmission of data
is occurring at the port.
4.
The Speed LED indicator will light up green when the port is connected to a 1000Mbps Ethernet station, and amber
when connected to a 100Mbps Ethernet device. The indicator will remain off when the port is connected to a
10Mbps Ethernet device.

2.5 Installation
Unique Magic Box interlocking enclosure facilitates easy rack mounting when used in pairs and easy truss mounting via
captive nut insert. Rack mounting brackets are available in single unit and dual unit versions.
Note: for truss mounting, we recommend the use of a ½"-13UNC x ¾" long bolt to avoid damage.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting is a process of elimination. First, rule out the other field factors (i.e. bad connections, faulty cables and

Maintenance
With care, the Chroma-Q Magic Box EtherSwitch 7F will require little maintenance. However, as the unit is likely to be used
in a stage environment we recommend periodical internal inspection and cleaning of any resulting dust and cracked oil
residue.
Do not spray liquids on the front or rear panel. If the front enclosure requires cleaning, wipe with a mild detergent on a
damp cloth.
