Overview
Feature Overview
• CAT5 Technology
Integrated CAT5 technology enables you to connect your KVM Switch to your
servers up to 100 feet (30m) away using standard CAT5 cabling and Belkin’s
compact Server Interface Modules. CAT5 cabling reduces wiring clutter,
simplifies cable management, and allows for greater airflow in your racks,
increasing the lifespan of your equipment. Server Interface Modules enable
continuous server uptime using keep-alive intelligence and keyboard and
mouse signal emulation.
• Dedicated Daisy-Chain Port
Up to 16 KVM switches can be daisy-chained together using dedicated
ports, so you can easily expand your KVM configuration as your server
environment grows.
• Video Resolution
The SMB CAT5 KVM Switch supports video resolutions of up to
1600x1200@75Hz.
• On-Screen Display (OSD)
The OSD feature simplifies server management by allowing you to assign
individual names to each connected server throughout the system. It provides
a visual means of switching between servers and setting the time interval for
the AutoScan function.
• Hot Keys
Hot key functionality allows you to select a desired port using designated key
commands. By using a simple hot key sequence on your keyboard, you can
select one server from as many as 256 servers, instantaneously.
2
Overview
• Front-Panel Push Buttons
• AutoScan
The AutoScan feature allows you to set your SMB CAT5 KVM Switch to scan
and monitor the activities of all connected servers, one by one. The time
interval allotted for each server can be defined or adjusted through the OnScreen Display (OSD) menu.
• LED Display
An LED display on the front panel of the SMB CAT5 KVM Switch serves as a
status monitor. An LED above each direct-access port selector illuminates to
indicate that the console currently controls the corresponding server. As a port
selector is pushed, the LED above it will light up. A flashing port LED indicates
that there is no server connected to that port.
• Seven-Segment LED Display
When daisy-chaining multiple SMB CAT5 KVM Switches together, the
seven-segment LED display serves as a quick indicator of the selected BANK.

Installation
Pre-Configuration
Where to Place the SMB CAT5 KVM Switch
The enclosure of the SMB CAT5 KVM Switch is designed for standalone or
rack-mount configuration. The 8- and 16-port SMB CAT5 KVM Switches are
natively rack-mountable in standard 19-inch server racks. Rack-mount hardware
is included with these switches for a sturdy rack installation. An optional RackMount Kit (F1D005) is available for use with the 4-Port SMB CAT5 KVM Switch.
Consider the following when deciding where to place the SMB
CAT5 KVM Switch:
•
•
•
•
whether or not you intend to use the direct-access port selectors
the lengths of the cables attached to your keyboard, monitor, and mouse
the location of your servers in relation to your console
the lengths of the cables you use to connect your servers to the SMB CAT5
KVM Switch
Cable Distance Requirements (for PS/2, USB, and Sun Servers)
VGA signals transmit best up to 100 feet (30m). Beyond that length, the
probability of video degradation increases. For this reason, Belkin recommends
that the length of the CAT5 UTP cable between the SMB CAT5 KVM Switch and
the connected servers does not exceed 100 feet (30m).
NOTE: The Belkin CAT5 Extender (F1D084) may be used to extend your console
(keyboard, mouse, and monitor) by up to 500 feet (152m).
WARNING! Avoid placing cables near fluorescent lights, air conditioning
equipment, or machines that create electrical noise (e.g., vacuum cleaners).
You are now ready to begin installation of your SMB CAT5 KVM Switch.
The following sections (pages 13-22) provide complete instructions
for the hardware setup of a single SMB CAT5 KVM Switch (F1DP104A,
F1DP108A, F1DP116A).
Note for Belkin PRO2 Series Owners (F1DA104T, F1DA108T, F1DA116T):
Installation for the PRO2 KVM Switch has changed. Please follow this installation
manual completely to ensure proper installation. Failure to do so may result in
keyboard or mouse errors, and/or faulty operation.

• For a single-unit configuration, set the “BANK DIP” switch on the SMB CAT5
KVM Switch to the “primary” (BANK address 00) setting. This is the factory
default setting.
• For a multi-unit configuration, the “BANK DIP” switch on the primary KVM
switch must be set to “BANK address 00”. Each secondary unit must be set to
a unique BANK address (from 01 through 15). Refer to the chart on page 24 for
“BANK DIP” switch settings.
23
section
You can daisy-chain up to 16 SMB CAT5 KVM Switches, allowing a server
administrator to manage up to a maximum of 256 servers from one console.
Each daisy-chained SMB CAT5 KVM Switch is referred to as a “BANK” and is
assigned an address. The SMB CAT5 KVM Switch connected to the console
keyboard, mouse, and monitor is BANK 00 and is referred to as the “primary”
KVM switch. BANKs 01 through 15 are referred to as “secondary” KVM switches.
