INSTRUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of one of the most innovative VGA(RGBHV) 4x4 matrix switching products on the
market Today. The SB-4140 is a true Matrix Routing Switcher for VGA(RGBHV) signals.
It has 4 individual VGA(RGBHV)/Stereo Audio(AR/AL) inputs with 4 individual RGBHV outputs. Because it is a matrix
router, any input may be routed to any output; or the same input may be routed to all outputs or any combination.
It completely eliminates the need to constantly move around VGA video input cables and output cables.
The SB-4140 is useful for Matrix signals from VGA source devices (such as: Personal computer, Set Top Box,
and Satellite Receivers, etc.) To VGA destination devices (Such as LCD Monitors, VGA Monitors, Plasma LCD TV,
VGA Projectors, etc.). Selection of inputs is made via the front panel push buttons or an Infrared Remote Control
unit or RS 232 control by a computer.

The Meicheng switcher can be controlled via the RS-232 serial control port to allow for interfacing to a PC,
or similar third party control system.
The serial communication parameters are 9600 baud, 8 bit, No Parity and 1 stop bit - this is often referred to as 9600 8N1.
When the unit recognises a complete command it will perform the requested action - there is no delimiter character required.
The unit does not send out a message when a value is changed from the front panel or by IR control. If the unit needs to be
controlled via the front panel in addition to the RS232 control, you should regularly poll the unit status to ensure the control system
accurately reflectes the current settings.
