Category 5 cabling makes for a much neater, more convenient, more reliable data transfer connection. Setup is as easy as can be - simply connect the PC system box and local console to the Local CE-220 Module; run the STP cable to the Remote CE-220 Module (up to 150 m away); and plug the remote console into the Remote Module. Note: You can control numerous remote systems from a single console by combining the CE-220 with KVM Switch.

This package contains: • 1 CE-220L Console Extender Local Unit • 1 CE-220R Console Extender Remote Unit • 1 Custom KVM Cable • 2 Power Adapters • 1 User Manual Overview Because the CE-220 Console Extender System allows access to a computer system from a remote console (keyboard, monitor, and mouse), it is perfect for factory and construction sites, or any type of installation where the console needs to be kept in a conveniently accessible location, but you want the system equipment to reside in a safe place - away from dust, dirt, and harsh environmental influences. The CE-220 Extender System is also useful for control and security purposes, where you can have the system unit in a secure area at the same time that you put the console in a location that offers convenient access. The CE-220 Console Extender provides the ideal means to access the remote system box, since it improves on previous designs by using inexpensive Category 5 STP cable - the kind commonly used in Ethernet networks instead of bulkier, more expensive, standard cables. • Uses Inexpensive, Reliable, Category 5 STP Ethernet Cable to Connect the Local and Remote Units • Dual Console Operation - Control Your System From Both the Local and Remote PS/2 Keyboard, Mouse, and Monitor Consoles • Push Button Selection of the Active Console • High Resolution Video - Up To 1024 x 768 @ 150 m (max.) • Supports VGA, SVGA, and Multisync Monitors • Local Monitor Supports DDC2 System Requirements • Consoles A VGA, SVGA, or Multisync monitor capable of the highest resolution that you will be using on any PC in the installation A PS/2 Style Keyboard A PS/2 Style Mouse Note: You must use the same brand and model of mouse on both the local and remote units. • PC The following equipment must be installed on each PC that is to be connected to the system: A VGA, SVGA or Multisync card. A 6-pin mini-DIN (PS/2 style) mouse port. A 6-pin mini-DIN (PS/2 style) keyboard port. • Cables Although it is possible to use standard extender cables to connect the computer to the CE-220L, for optimum signal integrity and tosimplify the layout, we strongly recommend that you use the high quality CS Custom Cable that is provided with this package. Category 5 STP cable is required to connect the local and remote CE-220 units. Note: Using other types of cable (e.g. UTP cable) will result in degrading the video signal.
