  • Built-in skew compensation (adjustable up to 62 ns) reduces color drift and keeps images sharp.
  • True DDC support for optimal operation with modern graphic adapter cards.

    If you need to transmit bidirectional stereo audio signals—in addition to serial and KVM signals—order the ServSwitch Wizard™ Extender Single-Access Serial Kit with Bidirectional Stereo Audio and Skew Compensation (ACU5112A).

    The kit extends PS/2® keyboard and mouse signals—along with transparent serial signals and the analog VGA signal—over a single CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6 cable up to 984.2 feet (300 m). Use the serial link to connect to graphic tablets, touch screens, or PDA cradles. For applications that require a serial mouse attached to a CPU, simply add a passive adapter (contact our FREE Tech Support).

    The audio connections enable you to use speakers, headsets, and microphones at your workstation. The kit comes with a transmitter module for local CPU connections and a receiver module for remote workstation (KVM) connections, as well as an adapter cable to connect the local module to the keyboard, video, and mouse connectors at your CPU.

    The ServSwitch Wizard Extender Kits with Skew Compensation family.
    All ServSwitch Wizard Extender Kits with Skew Compensation fix color drift by making up for the differences in length between wire pairs in CAT5e or CAT6 cable, and compensation is provided by a 62-ns color delay that can be adjusted in 2-ns calibrations to correct delay skew problems. What's more, these extenders also come with the latest video components and circuitry to enable higher bandwidth and ensure even clearer images. In fact, it's now possible to get maximum resolutions of 1600 x 1200 at 60 Hz at distances of 656.1 feet (200 m) or 1280 x 1024 at 60 Hz at the full distance of 984.2 feet (300 m)! These extenders also provide additional brightness and sharpness control options for ultra-clear images.

    Today's graphic adapter cards often require Display Data Channel (DDC) information for them to work correctly—or, in some cases, to work at all. These kits transmit an attached monitor's DDC information to its remote module. Plus this information is stored in the local module in case of a link loss.

    These extenders also feature password protection to prevent unauthorized access to a connected CPU or your switching system.
