    ServSwitch DVI/VGA Fiber Extenders with USB, Single-Mode


    Quick Facts

  • Combine VGA and DVI video in your KVM extension applications.
  • 1600 x 1200 resolution for local VGA access; 1280 x 1024 resolution for local DVI access.
  • Connect control room monitors, keyboards, and mice to factory floor CPUs.

  • Further Details

  • Rugged steel enclosure.
  • Includes Type A connectors for your USB keyboards, mice, and peripherals.
  • Plug as many as four USB version 1.1 peripherals into the remote unit, or even more if you add a USB hub.
  • Multimode version also available.

  • Send both digital DVI and analog VGA signals over fiber optic cabling to a remote site with the easy-to-install ServSwitch™ DVI/VGA Fiber Extenders with USB.

    The kit includes a local unit (transmitter) and remote unit (receiver) that communicate with one another via a fiber interconnection. Connect the local unit to the computer CPU or server directly with the included USB Type A to Type B cable and attach your KVM console to the remote unit. Plus you can plug as many as four USB peripherals into the remote unit—or even more if you add a USB hub.

    Video flexibility.
    You can use the extenders with today's top-of-the-line DVI video displays, which feature both excellent picture quality and higher-transfer bandwidths. What's more, there's no loss of picture quality no matter what the distance transmitted. Built-in video processors determine the best resolution and pixel phase for optimized digitization.

    Even though the extenders work best when you use DVI output from your computer's video card and DVI input to a monitor, they're flexible enough to use with just VGA equipment, too.

    You can even use a mix of both DVI and VGA devices, because the ServSwitch DVI/VGA Fiber Extenders with USB support all combinations of DVI and VGA graphics cards and monitors.

    Easy to fine-tune.
    Upgrade firmware through the programming port, too. Just plug in the included programming cable to transfer updates that you download from the Black Box Web site. All settings are stored in EEPROM memory.

    For diagnostic purposes, both local and remote units feature LEDs that indicate link status, when the devices are ready, and when the units detect a video signal or valid mode. There's also an LED to inform you of any communication errors.
