Broadband Constant Continuity Switch
This article describes a broadband constant continuity switch that allows
defective components to be removed from a network for servicing while the rest
of the network remains in normal operation.
Local area network (LAN) cable plants pass AC and RF signals through
passive components that distribute network signals to outlets (nodes). The
components are of two piece design that pass AC signals through the lower
housing, and RF signals through a removable electronic housing. Removal of
plate breaks connection through the housing and pulse testing through
electronics makes problem location difficult. The solution to these problems as
disclosed herein utilizes a make before break magnetic reed relay switch.
The drawing shows a broadband LAN cable tap with a magnet and reed
switch added. With this design echo test pulses may be used at install to locate
bad cable or connections. Defective components may be removed for service
while the rest of the network operates normally.
