Rose Electronics ViewLink Overview

The ViewLink CatX Advanced Micro-Mini KVM Extender from Rose Electronics is a versatile device used for standard KVM extension, and also for system building of customized keyboard/mouse and video applications. The ability to mix-and-match USB and PS2 allows the user to use a PS2 port on the computer, with a USB keyboard and mouse at the remote end.

The ViewLink handles the USB/PS2 conversion in both directions. In video-only applications, the transmitter unit can be powered via a standard USB hub. A special version of the transmitter unit has both USB and PS2 connectors attached for use in environments where there is changing and upgrading of CPU hosts.
