Description

Details

Convenient and remote control of a PC or KVM switch over 200m (650 ft) of UTP cable, the X-KVM is designed with Cat6 in mind. The X-KVM is a sophisticated extender offering flexible control over advanced cable systems.

Featuring auto bandwidth adjustment and skew reporting for today's challenging Cat6 structured cable systems, the X-KVM is designed to control a PC or KVM switch remotely over UTP cable. Ideal for use in call centres, digital signage applications, data centres and other high density environments where optimisation of rack space is essential, the X-KVM is also future proof due to flash upgradeability via the keyboard port.

Keyboard Control The cable equalisation are controlled in 'configuration mode' using the keyboard attached to the remote (KVM console-end) unit. Configuration mode is accessed using keyboard hotkeys. These hotkeys may also be used to lock the remote unit (if a password has been set). Hotkeys are variable and may be disabled if required. Feedback is provided to the user using the keyboard num, caps and scroll lights.
Indicators The remote and local units are fitted with a link/activity indicator that shows the link status and indicate keyboard and mouse data activity.

The units may be flash upgraded via the PS/2 keyboard ports from a connected computer. Flash upgrade mode is accessed using option switches mounted on the side of the local and remote units
Password Protection Mode The X-Series may be locked using a hotkey combination from the keyboard if a password has been loaded into the unit. The unit may then only be unlocked using the password. The video is blanked whilst the remote unit is locked.
