DCB SPL 2-14 Statistical Multiplexer
2 to 14 channel

Statistical multiplexers are available with 2 to 14 channels in 2 channel increments.

The SPL offers 64 Kbps synchronous network capability as a standard feature. 

Ports speeds of up to 38.4 Kbps are supported for asynchronous network installations.

Multiplexer designed to be used in either dial or leased line applications.

FEATURES
DESCRIPTION

The SPL series of statistical multiplexers are available with 2 to 14 channels in 2 channel increments. All port parameters are set either with an asynchronous terminal or with DIP switches and are battery maintained. The network management port provides local and remote unit setup, system statistics, local and remote testing, an online manual and the ability to do remote system training.

The SPL offers 64 Kbps synchronous network capability as a standard feature. Speeds of up to 38.4 Kbps are supported for asynchronous network installations.

"Copy" simultaneously connects the network management port and a remote port to the same computer port. "Copy" is used to train new remote users and perform remote application support with a significant cost savings.

The SPL is the only multiplexer designed to be used in either dial or leased line applications. Using dial modems, any terminal connected to the SPL may autodial the modem. After the dial call is completed to a site with another SPL, all terminals will be active. If the other site does not have an SPL, only the dialing terminal will be active. This feature allows a user connected to an SPL to call a site without a multiplexer. Error correction in the SPL may be disabled for use with error correction/data compression modems with speeds up to 38.4 Kbps. A disconnect timeout can be set to disconnect the dial call after a period of inactivity on all ports.

A 15 character ID can be set to assist in circuit identification. Any port, local or remote, can be captured. With the built-in "Data Scope" function a user can monitor the transmit or receive of any data port. Network and individual port loopbacks are available. Statistics include activity counters and a flow control report. The last reset and last zero of activity counters are date and time stamped by the on-board real time clock/ calendar.

Hardware and Xon/Xoff flow control are selectable on a port-by-port basis. The SPL Multiplexers perform speed and/or flow control conversion. Different port rates and/or flow control options may be set at each end.
