    When is a KVM extender not just a KVM extender? When it also comes with a built-in switch!

    The BLACK BOX® ServSwitch™ CAT5 KVM Switching Extender extends the distance from a local keyboard, monitor, and mouse to a remote CPU up to 300 meters (984.2 ft.) away. Of course, like all Black Box KVM extenders, this solution provides outstanding video resolutions—1280 x 1024 up to 120 meters (393.7 ft.) and 1024 x 768 up to 300 meters (984.2 ft.).

    The ServSwitch CAT5 KVM Switching Extender comes with a local and remote unit, and the remote unit includes fully adjustable controls for brightness and video equalization (focus). Adjustable video equalization enables the extender to compensate for signal degradation over long distances.

    With the extender, two user stations can contend for access. When there has been no keyboard or mouse activity detected at one station, the extender switches control to the other station.

    How exactly do stations contend for control? Simple. The first user station to press a key or move the mouse gains control of the CPU. And while the other user can view what's on the monitor, he or she cannot use his or her station's keyboard and mouse. Once the controling station is idle for 15 seconds, local and remote users begin contention once again.

    If the local user gains control and doesn't want the remote user to view what's on the monitor, he or she can activate Double Private Mode, which completely disables the remote keyboard, monitor, and mouse. When the local user wants the remote user to view again, Double Private Mode is deactivated.

    The ServSwitch CAT5 KVM Switching Extender also features built-in surge protection. It defends your CAT5 link side against harmful spikes and surges.

    It's an extender. It's a switch. It's a switch for the better. Choose the CAT5 KVM Switching Extender for your application today.
