Chapter 1
Introduction
Overview
The Master View CS9134 and CS9138 KVM switches are control units that
allow access to multiple computers from a single console (keyboard, monitor,
and mouse). Before the development of the Master View, the only way to
control multiple computer configurations from a single console was through a
complex and costly network system. Now, with the Master View / CS9134 /
CS9138, you can easily access multiple computers in a cost effective manner.
A single Master View CS9134 or CS9138 can control up to 4 or 8 computers,
respectively. Since the switches can be cascaded to three levels, in a full three
stage installation up to 21 CS9134 Master Views can control up to 64
computers and 73 CS9138 Master Views can control up to 512 computers - all
from a single console.
Setup is fast and easy; plugging cables into their appropriate ports is all that is
entailed. There is no software to configure, so there is no need to get involved
in complex installation routines or be concerned with incompatibility
problems. Because the / CS9134 / CS9138 intercepts keyboard input directly,
it works on any hardware platform and with all operating systems.
There are three convenient methods to access any computer connected to the
system: (1) using the push button port selection switches located on each unit's
front panel; (2) entering Hotkey combinations from the keyboard; and (3)
selecting from menus provided by the OSD (On Screen Display) feature. A
powerful Quick View Scan feature also permits auto scanning and monitoring
the activities of all operating computers on the installation one by one.
There is no better way to save time and money than with a Master View /
CS9134 / CS9138 installation. By allowing a single console to manage all the
attached computers, a Master View CS9134 / CS9138 installation: (1)
eliminates the expense of having to purchase a separate keyboard, monitor, and
mouse for each computer; (2) saves all the space those extra components would
take up; (3) saves on energy costs; and (4) eliminates the inconvenience and
wasted effort involved in constantly moving around from one computer to
another.

Single Station Installation
In a Single Stage installation, there are no additional Master View's cascaded
down from the first unit. To set up a single stage installation do the following:
1. Plug your keyboard, mouse, and monitor into the unit's Console Ports.
2. Use KVM cable sets (see Cables, page 3), to connect any available
CS-9134 or CS9138 KVM port to the Keyboard, Video and Mouse ports
of the computer you are installing.
3. If you choose to use external power, plug the power adapter cable into the
Master View's Power Jack, then plug the adapter into an AC power source.
Note: The switch is designed for non-powered operation in a single stage
installation by taking its power from the computers via the KVM
cables. If a computer, only supplies 3.3V of power for the keyboard
and mouse instead of 5V (as in the case of Notebooks, for example),
the unit will not receive enough power, and you will need to use the
external power adapter.
4. Turn on the power to the computers.
Note: If you choose to use external power, the Master View unit must be
plugged in and receiving power prior to turning on the power to the
computers.

Two Stage Installation
To control even more computers, up to four (CS9134) or eight (CS9138)
additional Master View units can be cascaded from the KVM ports of the First
Stage unit. The cascaded Master Views that connect back to the First Stage unit
are considered Second Stage units.
As many as 16 (CS9134) or 64 (CS9138) computers can be controlled in a
complete two stage installation. Tables showing the relation between the
number of computers and the number of Master View units needed to control
them are provided in the Appendix.
Note: Although several models of ATEN KVM switches can be cascaded (see
Compatible Cascade Switches, page 32 for a list), mixing different
Master View models on the same installation may cause problems with
OSD port switching. Therefore, we strongly recommend that all
cascaded units be the same model as the First Stage unit.
To set up a two stage installation, do the following:
1. Make sure that power to all the devices you will be connecting up,
including all preexisting devices on the installation, have been turned off.
2. Use a KVM cable set (see Cables, page 3), to connect any available KVM
Port on the First Stage unit to the Console Port connectors of the Second
Stage unit.
3. Use KVM cable sets (see Cables, page 3), to connect any available KVM
port on the Second Stage unit to the keyboard, video, and mouse ports of
the computers you are installing.
4. Plug the power adapter cable into the Master View's power jack, then plug
the adapter into an AC power source.
Note: Repeat the above steps for any other Second Stage units you wish to
connect.
5. Plug in the power adapter for the First Stage Master View unit.

The procedures for setting up a three stage installation are essentially the same
as for a two stage installation. With a three stage setup, as many as 64 (CS9134)
or 512 (CS9138) computers can be controlled in a complete installation. A
table showing the relation between the number of computers and the number
of Master View units needed to control them is provided in the Appendix.
Note: Master View units cannot be cascaded beyond the third level.
To set up a three stage installation, do the following:
1. Make sure that power to all the devices you will be connecting up,
including all preexisting devices on the installation, have been turned off.
2. Use a KVM cable set (see Cables, page 3), to connect any available KVM
Port on the Second Stage unit to the Console Port connectors of the Third
Stage unit.
3. Use KVM cable sets (see Cables, page 3), to connect any available KVM
port on the Third Stage unit to the keyboard, video, and mouse ports of the
computers you are installing, as shown in the diagram on page 13.
4. Plug the power adapter cable into the Master View's Power Jack, then plug
the adapter into an AC power source.

Basic Operation
Hot Plugging
The Master View CS9134 / CS9138 supports hot plugging. Components can
be removed and added back into the installation by unplugging and replugging
their cables from their respective ports without the need to shut the switch
down. For hot plugging to work properly, the following procedures must be
observed:
Hot Plugging KVM Ports
When hot plugging cables from the KVM ports:
Š The cable must be plugged back into the same port it was removed from.
Š The mouse cable must be plugged in before the keyboard cable.
Š After plugging the cable back in, you must perform a KVM Reset on the
First Stage unit (by pressing the Reset switch In).
Hot Plugging Console Ports
The unit supports hot plugging of the keyboard, monitor, and mouse from its
console ports.
Note: 1. When hot plugging the mouse from the console mouse port (to reset
the mouse, for example), however, you must plug the same mouse
back in.
2. If, after hot plugging (or at any other time), there is no response to
mouse and/or PS/2 keyboard input, simultaneously press and hold
Port Select buttons 1 and 2 on the First Stage unit for 3 seconds to
perform a PS/2 Keyboard and PS/2 Mouse reset.

cs91348.book Page 19 Thursday, May 3, 2007 2:28 PM
3. Basic Operation
Port ID Numbering
Each KVM Port on a Master View installation is assigned a unique Port ID.
You can directly access any computer on any level of the installation by
specifying the Port ID of the KVM port that the computer is connected to –
either with the Hotkey port selection method, or with the OSD.
The Port ID is a one, two, or three digit number. It is determined by the Stage
Level and KVM Port number of the Master View unit that a computer is
connected to.
The first digit represents the KVM Port number of the First Stage unit; the
second digit represents the KVM Port number of the Second Stage unit; the
third digit represents the KVM Port number of the Third Stage unit.
Š A computer attached to a First Stage unit has a one digit Port ID (from 1 to
4 for the CS9134; from 1 to 8 for the CS9138). The number corresponds to
the KVM Port number that the computer is connected to.
Š A computer attached to a Second Stage unit has a two digit Port ID:
Š The first digit represents the KVM Port number on the First Stage unit
that the Second Stage unit links back to.
Š The second digit represents the KVM Port number on the Second Stage
unit that the computer is connected to.
For example, a Port ID of 2 3 refers to a computer that is connected to
KVM Port 3 of a Second Stage unit that links back to KVM Port 2 of the
First Stage unit.
Š Likewise, a computer attached to a Third Stage unit has a three digit Port
ID. A Port ID of 2 4 1 refers to a computer that is connected to KVM Port
1 of a Third Stage unit, that links back to KVM Port 4 of a Second Stage
unit, which, in turn, links back to KVM Port 2 of the First Stage unit.

OSD Operation
OSD Overview
The On Screen Display (OSD) provides a menu driven interface to handle all
computer control and switching procedures. Although Hotkey switching still
works, using OSD is a great deal more convenient - especially in large,
cascaded installations where it is difficult to keep track of which port a
particular computer is attached to.
All operations start from the OSD Main Menu. To pop up the Main Menu, tap
either Ctrl key twice.
Note: 1. The keys must be on the same side (both left, or both right).
2. You can optionally change the Hotkey to the Scroll Lock key (see
OSD ACTIVATING HOTKEY, page 26), in which case you would tap
[Scroll Lock] twice.
When you invoke the OSD, a screen similar to the one below appears:
OSD always starts in List view, with the highlight bar at the same position it
was in the last time it was closed.
The next two sections explain how to navigate using the OSD and OSD Hotkey
methods.
