Introduction
Thank you for buying our KVM Switch (from here on, simply referred to as the "switch device").
This switch device is usable with PC/AT compatibles as well as supporting Sun and
multi-platform configurations. Requiring only a single master set of control devices (monitor,
keyboard and mouse), this switch device allows you to operate multiple PC/AT compatible and
Sun model computers (hereafter referred to as "hosts") from a single console setup. Hosts can
be selected simply via the select switches, keyboard or using the on screen display (OSD).
Safety instructions are provided to ensure the safe use of the switch device.
Also, be sure to thoroughly read this User's Manual before you start using the switch
device to ensure correct use. Be sure to keep this User's Manual in a safe place for future
reference.
This user’s manual is written for 4-port, 8-port and 16-port setups. Unless specifically noted,
all explanations assume an 8-port setup.

Safety Instructions
Read the “Safety Instructions” before use to ensure proper use of this product. Safety Instructions
contained in this section are written for the user to avoid any damage to property or injury to self;
please read the following carefully.
Verify that the power to the host is off before connecting or disconnecting any of the connectors.
Also, be sure to discharge any static electricity. Connecting or disconnecting the connectors
while carrying a static charge or while the power to the host is on may damage the host or this
device. Please note that, damage of this kind is not covered by the warranty.
Only PC/AT compatible and SUN computers can be hooked up to this device. However, each
host must be equipped with the following type of keyboard, mouse and monitor connectors.
Other specifications are not supported. Additionally, a PS/2 keyboard and mouse cannot be
connected at the same time as a Sun keyboard.
Allowed PC/AT compatible connectors:
- Mini DIN 6P female (1 each for PS/2 keyboard and PS/2 mouse)
- USB A-type connector
- DB15HD female (for monitor)
Allowed SUN connectors:
- Mini DIN 8 P female (for keyboard)
- USB A type connector
- 13 W3 female or DB 15 HD male (for monitor)
*Note: a 13 W3 connector will require a monitor cable adapter.
Connecting the host requires special optional cables (for PS/2, Sun, and 1.8 m, 3 m and 5 m
USB cables). The maximum cable length is 5 meters. Use a 1.8-meter cable for cascaded
connections. Please note that cables longer than specified are not covered by the warranty.
Use of standard equipment is recommended because special keyboards (programmable,
wireless) and mice (wireless or that require a special driver) may not be supported / operate.
The keyboard connector for this switch device is a PS/2 type (Mini DIN 6P female), but you can
connect an AT type (DIN 5P male) keyboard by using a PS/2 <-> AT adapter. A USB type
keyboard may not be used as the console keyboard.
The mouse connector for the switch device is exclusively for PS/2 connection (Mini DIN 6P
female). A serial or USB type mouse may not be used as the console mouse.
When using mice that have PS/2 wheels with scroll functions, the scroll function can only be
used with DOS/V machines. Meaning that they do not function on Sun machines. Scroll mice
that are not supported may not operate normally. Also, the scroll mice may fail to function
properly depending on the software used.
The keyboard and mouse connectors are the same shape. Be sure the colors match to connect
them correctly. If they are forced in or connected incorrectly, the switch device may not only
function improperly but also may malfunction.
Set up the console’s keyboard and mouse with each host correctly. If they are not set correctly
they will not operate normally.
Hook up the cables for each port to the same host. If the monitor, keyboard, and mouse port
numbers are wrong, you will not be able to select the host correctly.
A DVI (Digital Video Interface) compatible display cannot be connected.
The display on the monitor connected to this switch device should support multi-scan, and have
its resolution set correctly. This switch device supports a resolution of 1600 x 1200 with a
refresh rate of 75 Hz. Also, The display may be off center after switching depending on the
monitor and resolution settings. Adjust the monitor or video card if this happens.
Degradations in high resolution screen quality, such as ghosts or blurring, may be due to the
monitor cable or video card. Also, the screen may not display normally sometimes, depending
on the particular combination of display and video card. If this happens, try using a high grade
cable or video card and altering the connection environment.
3
The monitor cable connector is a DB 15 HD type. You will need a monitor conversion connector
(available separately) to attach a Sun monitor that has a different shape connector. Make sure
you connect it in the correct orientation and use the fixing screws to hold it in place. It may
cause trouble if it is not connected properly.
The [POWER] LED on the front panel flashes if the AC cord comes unplugged, reminding you
to reconnect it.
Cascaded connections must be setup exclusively with our KVM switches only. You cannot
make these connections with switches produced by other manufacturers.
A maximum of two levels of cascaded connections are allowed (including the master).
Attempting to cascade three or more levels will not work.
4
Features
By connecting several hosts (PC/AT compatible and Sun) machines to this switch device, you
can save a lot of space by using only one common master console rather than the situation of a
console (monitor, keyboard and mouse) for each host that was previously required.
However, you cannot hook up both a PS2 keyboard and mouse and a Sun keyboard at the
same time to the console.
All of the ports on this device use PS/2 interface, USB interface and Sun serial interface.
Choose the cables to match the environment you are using.
With a single switch device, you can attach up to four, eight, or 16 hosts. (By using four, eight, or
16 port switch devices.)
It is possible to attach more hosts by using cascaded connections.
Example: By using nine devices, each with eight ports, it is possible to hook up 64 hosts.
The switch device can be stored in a 19 inch EIAJ standard rack cabinet in a space that is just
1U high. (8 and 16 port switch devices)
The console panel and the rear panel can be removed when putting together the rack cabinet
making it easier to connect hosts in the small area in the cabinet.
There is a power and voltage monitoring circuit built in to the device to let you know if the AC
cord becomes disconnected or the internal fuse blows.
Both PS/2 and Sun keyboards are supported.
Both PS/2 and Sun mice are supported.
The following PS/2 mice are supported; 2/3 button mice, each type of wheel mice (Microsoft
IntelliMouse, Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer, Logitech/Logicool MouseMan Wheel and others)
as well as IBM Scroll Point Mouse, Fujitsu FID677 (Multi-scroll mouse).
A monitor resolutions of 1600 x 1200 and a refresh rate of 75 Hz are supported.
Host selection is easy with the Host Selector Button, the OSD display (Hot Key Mode) or the
mouse.
In Hot Key Mode, you can switch hosts while looking at the OSD screen (using the on screen
display).
OSD control can be done with Hot Keys from the keyboard. You can set three different types of
Hot Key (Ctrl+Alt+Shift, Ctrl x2, and Scroll Lock x2). This allows you to avoid key conflict
problems when applications use the same key as Hot Keys for a more effective way to use Hot
Keys.
Auto scan can be done with the Auto Scan Button or the Hot Keys.
Auto scan automatically cycles through all of the connected hosts that are currently running,
allowing the operating status of each host to be periodically checked. The speed at which auto
scan cycles can be controlled by using the keyboard to select one of the six available switching
intervals (3 – 60 seconds).
When using Sun hosts, the KVM switch can switch KVMs without turning off the power to the
host.

2.2 When using two levels (using cascaded connections)
By using cascaded connections (maximum 1 master and 8 slaves) it is possible to hook up
a maximum of 64 hosts.
1) Connect the hosts one through eight to the second level of switch devices (called
slaves), in the same way as for the [first level].
2) Next, use the special cables to attach the [keyboard+mouse+monitor] connector of the
first level switch device (called master) to the [Keyboard], [Mouse], and [CONSOLE]
connectors on the console ports of the second level slave switch devices.
3) To increase the number of slaves, connect them in the same way as described in steps
1 and 2 above. Do not connect slaves beyond the second level. Three level connection
does not work.

Showing/Hiding Host Names
[Show Host Name Function]
When the device is operating in normal Console Mode, holding the <Shift> key down and pressing the <Scroll
Lock> key twice causes the host name for the currently selected channel to be shown in the top-left of the screen.
If the host name is being displayed, holding the <Shift> key down and pressing the <Scroll Lock> key twice again
causes the host name to disappear from the screen.
The factory default is for the host name to not be shown.
The host name is not shown when Hot Key Mode is active.
While in the Hot Key Mode, holding the <Shift> key down and pressing the <Scroll Lock> key twice will not cause
the host name to be shown/hidden.
The current Show/Hide Host Name state is retained after switching the host via selector buttons or OSD.
If a FS-10x series device (previous model) is used in a cascaded setup, some or all of the host names may not be
displayed, depending on the exact setup used:
●
●
If a device that is not capable of showing host names is used as the master device, no host names will be
shown.
If a device that is not capable of showing host names is used as a slave device, no host names will be shown
for the channels of that device.
18
EDID Setting Mode
After pressing the <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<Shift> keys or double pressing the <Scroll Lock> to activate the Hot Key Mode,
pressing the <N> key causes the display to switch to the Customer Mode:
The top line accesses the EDID Setting Mode.
The bottom line displays the firmware version currently installed.
Pressing the <Enter> key on this screen causes the text background to turn purple, while the EDID information
is retrieved from the monitor connected to the console port and written to the internal ROM.
After the ROM has been written, the message “PNP MONITOR” is displayed.
When EDID information cannot be retrieved from the connected monitor, the message “DEFAULT MONITOR”
is displayed, and “00” is written to the ROM.
If a new monitor is connected, and the EDID Setting performed, the internal ROM setting is subsequently
transmitted to each host automatically.
The EDID Setting Mode may be ended as follows:
Press the <P> key to return to the Host Selection screen.
Press the <Esc> key to escape the Hot Key Mode and return to the normal console screen.
Caution
We recommend a noninterlaced video signal for the on screen display.
(However, it is possible to display an interlaced signal with a resolution of 1152 x 864, 1280 x 1024, or 1600 x
1200. However at resolutions lower than this and the display may extend beyond the edges of the screen.
