Product Features

  • Place your VGA monitors, keyboard, and mouse more than 984.2 feet (300 m) from a CPU and get clear video at the remote end.
  • Perfect for CPUs with multihead video.
  • Dual-access capability enables you to operate the computers from either the local or remote site.
  • Details

  • Use for point-to-point extension of four monitors.
  • Get high video resolutions at long distances—up to 1600 x 1200 at 60 Hz and 650 feet (198.1 m).
  • You can also get 1280 x 1024 resolution at 75 Hz up to 984.2 feet (300 m).
  • Video settings store in nonvolatile memory.
  • Remote units include built-in skew compensator.
  • Flash-upgradable standalone remote unit.
  • Keyboard/mouse emulation provides keep-alive functionality.
  • All monitor skew compensation can be fine-tuned easily via keyboard hotkey commands—even at long distances and high resolutions.
  • Works with CAT5, CAT5e, and CAT6 cables.
  • Single-access kits and Quad-Head models are available.
  • Models with serial and audio support are also available.
  • Rackmount in our RMK19U-X3 19" Rackmount Kit.
  • To convert your USB-style keyboard and mouse signals to PS/2®, order the USB to PS/2 Converter (KVUSB).
  • Extend your KVM signals up to 984.2 feet over over CAT5 or higher cable with four separate video feeds. This way, you can make full use of CPUs with multiple video outputs.

    The extender comes in a kit that includes local and remote units, which are connected with a single CAT5 or higher cable. All keyboard, mouse, and video signals are fully buffered to ensure consistent remote operation of your PC.

    With this Dual-Access model, you can attach an additional monitor, keyboard, and mouse to the local units. You can then operate the PC from either the local or remote user station. These stations share access on a "first come, first served" basis.

    Ultimate video at the remote end.
    No matter what CAT5 or higher cable you use, you can expect clear, high resolution at the remote end with these KVM extenders. That’s because the CATx kits’ remote units and individual standalone remote units feature a built-in skew compensator. Color drift—caused by the different twist ratios of the twisted pair cable—is eliminated. The skew compensator removes the unsightly color shadows by delaying some color signals so that all color signals arrive at the same time at the remote end. This skew compensation works with all colors transmitted.

    You can fine-tune the monitor image via simple keyboard hotkey commands to fix skew attenuation and losses. Use keyboard controls to equalize red, green, and blue to compensate for the differing pair lengths found in CAT5e and higher cables. Independent low-frequency (LF) and high-frequency (HF) equalization adjustment ensure optimum video tuning. The precise equalization enables resolution of 1280 x 1024 up to 984.2 feet (300 m) or 1600 x 1200 resolution up to 656.1 feet (200 m). Preset modes also help you find the right image balance quickly, and Quick Skew features help make video tuning nearly automatic.

    ServSwitch Single-Video CATx KVM Extenders save all video settings in nonvolatile memory.

    Add standalone remote units to existing extender applications.
    Do you already have a ServSwitch Extender at work for you? Want to add enhanced video capabilities? Just order a ServSwitch CATx KVM Extender Remote Unit (ACUR002A). This standalone remote unit features easy-to-adjust skew compensation and are compatible with many of our ServSwitch CAT5 Extenders. To determine which CATx KVM Extender Remote Unit will work with the extender you have, contact ServSwitch Central™ at 724-746-5500 or by clicking "Talk to a Tech."

    Plug in your connections and go.
    Setup is simple. Connect the local and remote units to each other and adjust your video compensation to your liking. The extenders are easy to operate and require no software.

    Because the extenders perform complete PS/2 keyboard and mouse emulation, you can boot the PC without having a keyboard or mouse attached to it. What’s more, the extenders are compatible with Microsoft® IntelliMouse® and other wheel mice. You can even use a standard PS/2 mouse at one user station and an IntelliMouse at the other.
