    What equipment do you recommend for doing automatic switchovers for
    phone lines if a receiver dies.

    What switches your main rcvr to a back up rcvr.
  2. As I recall, our automation software (MAS) made the transfer via an
    RS-232 switch. It could be enabled manually by an operator or
    automatically when software sensed a problem with a receiver.

    Depending upon how your receivers communicate with automation software,
    you could simply use an RS-232 A-B switch to transfer manually. The
    spare receiver can be installed completely and then turned off until
    you need it. Switching phone lines from one receiver to another can be
    done manually or automatically as well. To earn a UL listing, the
    spare is required to be switched in place within 30 seconds of failure.
