ServSwitch™ Brand CAT5 KVM Extenders with Serial Extension and Stereo Audio Support enable you to place your VGA monitor, keyboard, mouse, and a serial device (like a modem, printer, or touchscreen) as far as 1000 feet (304.8 m) from a CPU. Plus these extenders also enable you to place audio devices such as speakers, microphones, and headphones up to 1000 feet from the CPU.With the Dual-Access model (ACU1028A), 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 simple. Connect the local and remote units to each other and your equipment. Then adjust your video compensation. Thats it! The extenders are easy 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.All extenders feature fully adjustable video equalization to compensate for the loss of image quality caused by the signal passing through long cable runs.

With the ACU1028A, you can even use a standard PS/2 mouse at one user station and aThe extenders come in kits that include local and remote units, which are connected with a single CAT5 cable.
