Nine pin! Ca-chunk ca-chunk! Nine pin! Ca-CHUNK!
Do you miss the good old days of rotating knobs, heavy switches,
and industrial electronics made of steel? Or maybe you've got
techo-bits from that era, still alive and kicking because stuff
was built to last back then?
If either of the above is true, then good news, everyone! DataPro
is proudly still carrying rotary manual switches, including
this stylish and ever-useful 9-pin D-Sub switcher!
It's got female DB09 ports on the back, which work as multi-in/one-out or
one-in/multi-out, depending on which way you want to go. It features
break-before-make switching technology to ensure that one
connection is completely severed before the next one makes contact.
It's perfect for RS232 serial switching, typical of marine GPS hardware
and older industrial machine interfaces. It's also great for null-modem
switching (or modem switching, if you've got a serial modem), and even
really old-school video using RGB/TTL signals. It also weighs over a pound
and has pointy corners, so it could make an effective blunt weapon or
