Introduction of RS232 remote operation:
RS232 remote operation is mainly based on the “super terminal” of Windows operation system. Its parameter should be: ANSI 4800 8-N-1-non

Setting of “super terminal” interface

a. Connect the switch splitter to the COM of PC with a RS232 cable.

b. Choose the right COM when you setting “super terminal” and then set the parameter as follow:

Baud frequency4800

Data bit: 8

Parity bit: N

Stop bit: 1

Data stream: NON

The method of instruction input

Input your instruction and the instruction should be letters, numbers, and finished with “Enter” button.

Please input the next instruction in three seconds or the ”Overtime instruction” will appear.

The input instruction should be right, or you will be rejected with the “wrong instruction 

If the input or output that you choose is not connected to devices or not in power-on mode, “ineffective instruction” will inform you.
