Main Features
  • KVM extender
  • up to 304.8 m
With the ServSwitch Brand CAT5 KVM Serial Extenders with Serial Extension, you can place your VGA monitor, keyboard, mouse, and a serial device (like a modem, printer, or touch-screen) as far as 1000 feet (304.8 m) from the PC's CPU. The extenders come in kits that include Local and Remote units. These units are connected with a single Category 5 UTP or STP 4-pair cable. All keyboard, mouse, video, serial, and applicable audio signals are fully buffered to ensure consistent remote operation of your PC.

With the Dual-Access model ACU1008A, you can attach an additional monitor, keyboard, and mouse to the Local Unit. The PC can then be operated from either the local or remote user station. These stations share access on a "first come, first served" basis. Setup is easy. Start with a simple configuration of your extenders. Then connect the Local and Remote units to each other and to your equipment. Adjust your video compensation as necessary, and you're ready! The extenders are simple 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. Your PC will boot even if an extender's Remote Unit is not powered or if no keyboard or mouse is connected to the Local or Remote Unit. All extenders feature fully adjustable video equalization to compensate for the loss of image quality caused by the signal passing through long cable runs. The extenders are compatible with Microsoft IntelliMouse and other wheel mice. With the Dual-Access models, you can even use a standard PS/2 mouse at one user station and an IntelliMouse at the other.
