Black Box ACU3009A Overview

The ACU3009A ServSwitch Micro KVM (VGA/PS/2) over CAT5 Dual-Access Extender Kit by Black Box, comprised of a local transmitter unit and a remote receiver unit, enables you to access your CPU from either a local or a remote PS/2 keyboard, VGA monitor, and PS/2 mouse. A CAT5 cable is used to extend the distance from your PC up to 160'. The maximum resolution supported is 1280 x 1024. All KVM signals are fully buffered to ensure consistent remote operation of your PC.

The local unit is connected directly to a PC's CPU using the included three-to-one cable and the remote KVM console is attached to the remote unit. The local KVM console, which is attached to the local unit, will contend with the remote station for CPU control. One station will be granted control while the user at that station is typing at the keyboard or moving the mouse. Once this activity stops for two seconds, the user at the other station can take take control.

The remote unit draws its power from the included external supply, and the local unit is powered by the connection from the CPU's keyboard port. A single DIP switch is set to tell the extender whether to equalize for CAT5 cable shorter or longer than 82'. Because the local unit always emulates a directly attached keyboard and mouse, you can unplug and replug any keyboard or mouse attached to the extender at any time without disrupting the booting or operation of your CPU.
