Overview
2.1
Introduction
A Fiber KVM Extender is mainly used, to extend the maximum distance between a CPU
and his Keyboard / Monitor / Mouse considerably. In addition they are beneficial in
installations in electromagnetic hazardous environments (EMI). Normal Keyboard-/
Monitor-/ Mouse extender cables (and Extender using traditional cables) cannot go so far
and EMI interferences may reduce the maximum distance and/or reliability. Using a
DVI-D Fiber Extender system, these limitations are past. Retain your CPU in a secure
rack cabinet or data center while accessing from a 140m remotely located place.
A basic KVM extension system comprises a Local unit (transmitter) and a Remote unit
(receiver). The Local unit connects directly to the computer (or a KVM switch system) using
the supplied cable(s). The user console (keyboard, mouse and monitor) attaches to the
Remote unit. The Remote and Local units communicate video and data information along the
interconnecting cable. Local units offer dual access, allowing the connection of a second user
console close to the computer.

DVI-D FIBER KVM-EXTENDER
2.6 How to Use This Guide
This guide describes the installation and configuration of the DVI-D Fiber – Extender Series.
Although the connection and operation of the system is relatively straightforward, you should
consider the following before getting started:
Connection & Compatibility
If you have purchased an Extender Kit, this will contain all the cables required to connect the
Local unit to your PC or KVM switch. Please see also: Package Contents (page 15)
For information about connection and installation, see Interconnection Cable
Requirements, page 17.
DDC Information
Normally it is not necessary to make any adjustments to the DVI-D Fiber KVM-Extender.
However, in some circumstances, it may be necessary to redefine the source of DDC
Information for the CPU. By default, the DVI-D Fiber KVM-Extender uses its own internal
DDC table. If this setting does not satisfy your requirements, the DDC table can either be
switched to the locally attached screen or could be downloaded from remotely located screen
and stored in the internal DDC table.
To modify the DDC-Setup, see Service Setup (page 31).
Selecting the moment of switching to the next frame
The transmission of screen data in not synchronous to the screen change of the graphic card.
Normally, the transmission is terminated during displaying a frame on the screen. If the
device switches to the new frame during the displaying period of the old frame (somewhere
on the screen), it’s possible, that you can see horizontal screen breaks in the moment of
switching (default). On the other hand the device must idle, until the actual frame is displayed
completely (until VSYNC) -> the number of frames per second transmitted sinks.
To modify the switching behaviour, see Service Setup (page 31).
Selection of Color reduction for transfer acceleration
You can select, whether always 24 Bit colors (=full color depth) are transmitted or whether
the compression algorithm automatically switches between 16 and 24 Bit colors to accelerate
the data transfer (default). Normally the difference between 24 Bit and 16 Bit is not
recognizable but under some special circumstances e.g. in photo processing installations.
However, the automatic color switching enhances the count of frames, transmitted per
second, fixed 24 Bit color depth gives smooth color grades under all circumstances. Please
select to you choice the better mode.
To modify the color depth, see Service Setup (page 31).
Compatibility
Devices with PS2 connectors are NOT compatible to devices with USB connectors.

INSTALLATION
3.2 Interconnection Cable Requirements
To connect the Local and Remote units you will need:
•
DVI, PS2-Keyboard, PS2-Mouse: Connect the supplied KVM CPU cable set to your
CPU (KVM.- Switch, etc.). Please ensure that the connection is tension-free! Devices
ACS2028A + ACS2228A
•
DVI, USB-Keyboard, USB-Mouse: Connect the supplied KVM CPU cable set to your
CPU (KVM.- Switch, etc.). Please ensure that the connection is tension-free! Devices
ACS4022A + ACS4222A
•
DVI: Connect the supplied DVI CPU cable set to your CPU (KVM.- Switch, etc.).
Please ensure that the connection is tension-free! Devices ACS2228A + ACS4222A
•
Fiber Cable: Two strands of fiber are required for singlehead devices, four strands for
Dualhead devices.
Please note, that the allowed distance will depend on device type AND on
used fiber type.
•
Recommended cables:
ACSxxxxA-MM: Multimode type 50/125µ
ACSxxxxA-MM: Multimode type 62.5/125µ
ACSxxxxA-SM: Singlemode type 9/125µ
allowed distance app. 400m (1,300ft)
allowed distance app. 200m (650ft)
allowed distance app. 10km (32,750ft)
A point to point connection is required. Having one or more patch panels
in the line is possible and allowed. Not allowed is a connection from the
Fiber link interface (LC) to any other products, especially
telecommunications or network equipment.
Our experiences show, that Singlemode devices regularly work well on
Multimode Fibers where vice versa it will never do. In addition we found,
that Singlemode devices on Multimode fibers may extend the allowed
distance on Multimode fibers to twice the regular length. Anyway this
cannot be guaranteed and must be evaluated by the end-user at his own
expense.
•
Power Supply
Connect the supplied 5V/DC power supplies to the Plug terminal on the rear of both
Local and Remote units.

SERVICE SETUP
Loading the DDC Information from the Remote Monitor into the
internal DDC Table
To load the DDC Information from the Remote Monitor into the internal DDC Table,
please proceed the following steps:
•
Power up the CPU, the Local Unit, the Remote (cables to the CPU connected) and the
Monitor
•
Pull the Monitor Cable(s) from the Remote Unit (Dualhead devices: BOTH Monitors!)
•
Switch ON the Monitor(s) (if switched OFF, Dualhead devices: BOTH Monitors!)
•
Plug the Video-Cable of the Remote Monitor(s) into the remote unit (Remote and Local
Unit powered! - Dualhead devices: BOTH Monitors!)
•
The DDC Information of the Remote Monitor(s) is read automatically, transferred to the
Local Unit and stored into the DDC-EPROM
•
After a successful programming of the DDC EPROM, the ‚Video-OK’ LED at the
Local Unit is blinking rapidly for approx. 1 second
•
Done
Selection of Color depth
You can select, whether 16/24Bit AUTOSELECT colors (=64K/16M colors) are transmitted
(default) or 24Bit colors (=16M colors). AUTOSELECT means, that as far as the screen
content allows high data compression, 24Bits are transmitted. When the video data do not
allow to reduce data enough, the colors are automatically reduced to 16Bit. This is
autoselected in each line of the screen picture at any time. This mode makes the best
compromise between speed and color depth.
Please select 24Bit, if you want to have under all circumstances highest colours (but perhaps
with reduced frame rates).

Selecting the moment of switching to the next frame
The transmission of screen data in not synchronous to the screen change of the graphic card.
Normally, the transmission is terminated during displaying a frame on the screen. If the
device switches to the new frame during the displaying period of the old frame (somewhere
on the screen), it’s possible, that you can see horizontal screen breaks in the moment of
switching. On the other hand the device must idle, until the actual frame is displayed
completely (until VSYNC) -> the number of frames per second transmitted sinks.

Troubleshooting
Monitor
There isn’t a picture.
Check the power supply connection at the local and remote unit. Is the Power (Red
LED) at the Local unit illuminated (see page 29)? If not, the internal power-supply
may be damaged or there may be an internal error.
Check that the Interconnection cable is connected at the Local Unit and the Remote
Unit. Is the Link Status LED illuminated (see page 29)? If not, there may be a
problem with the Interconnection cable:
Are there Errors through data transmission over CATX Cable (Cable too long, too
high attenuation or too much EMI interference )? Is the Data Error LED
illuminated or blinking (see page 29)? If yes, check cable length and environment.
Video Okay LED is dark: CPU does not provide a video signal – Check settings of
the graphic card. Try out, connecting a monitor to the local output, to see, whether
there is a signal or not.
‘Stepping’ pictures on displaying movies
On high resolutions, the amount of data transmitted each second expires the
capability of the data link. Therefore the data have to be reduced before
transmitting. This is done in a first step by a so called RLE (=Run Length
Encoding) algorithm. If this (loss less) compression does not reach the required
amount, frames are dropped: The frame actually transmitted is transmitted
completely even if the graphic card generates a new frame. This new frame is
discarded. Because of this behaviour, the count of frames per second (fps) may be
reduced to a value, where ‘stepping’ pictures are seen.
How to solve the problem: Please use a lower resolution, which is slightly higher
than the resolution of the recorded movie. Please see, that most (actual) movies do
have only a low resolution of approx. 720x480 (NTSC) or 704x576 (PAL) or even
320x256 (VHS). If the monitor provides a higher resolution, it may provide the
scaling of the pictures. The picture quality is the same, if the monitor or the CPU
does the scaling.
How to solve the problem: Set the color depth to 16/24Bit AUTOSELECT. On
moving pictures, the human eye is not able, to see differences between so many
colors. A reduction to 16Bit reduces the amount of data without (visible) effects.
PS2-Keyboard
The PC boots fine with no error messages but the keyboard does not work at all
Wrong cable plugged in, keyboard and mouse cables reversed.
35
DVI-D FIBER KVM-EXTENDER
Try a different model of keyboard. If the new keyboard works then original one
may be incompatible
Check that the Interconnection cable is connected at the Local Unit and the Remote
Unit. Is the Link Status LED illuminated (see page 29)?
The other console is active. Claim control by any keyboard action or by pressing
left and right mouse buttons simultaneously.
PS2-Mouse
A mouse cursor appears on the screen, but the mouse does not work
Wrong cable plugged in, keyboard and mouse cables reversed.
Try a different model of mouse
You have connected the Local unit while the CPU was running. Therefore you have
connected first the keyboard cable and then the mouse cable. Disconnect the
keyboard cable and connect it again. Please reboot you CPU if the mouse is still not
running.
The other console is active. Claim control by any keyboard action or by pressing
left and right mouse buttons simultaneously.
The system does not detect a PS/2 mouse, or the application cannot find the mouse.
Wrong cable plugged in, keyboard and mouse cables reversed.
Ensure that the Local Unit is connected to the PC keyboard port to provide power.
You have plugged keyboard and mouse cable to the CPU ports while the CPU was
powered. There you first have plugged the Keybord cable, then the Mouse cable.
Please unplug and replug the keyboard cable. If the mouse still does not work,
please reboot the CPU: The K/M sub electronics are powered by the CPU keyboard
port. If you first plug in the keyboard cable, the circuit tries to find a mouse port. If
it fails, it disables the mouse functionality.

Although we tried to design the devices as transparent as possible, we can’t ensure
that all devices are running. Please ask Technical Support for a list of tested
devices.
Your mouse is ‘stepping’ on your screen
On high resolutions, the amount of data transmitted each second expires the
capability of the data link. Therefore the data have to be reduced before
transmitting. This is done in a first step by a so called RLE (=Run Length
Encoding) algorithm. If this (loss less) compression does not reach the required
amount, frames are dropped: Because of this, ‘stepping’ mouse movements are
seen.
How to solve the problem: Please use a lower resolution or use a desktop
background which is better suitable for compression: Avoid photos for background
36
TROUBLESHOOTING
or horizontally graduated colors – better use monochrome backgrounds. They allow
higher compression -> higher frame rates.
Your mouse is moving like ‘hanging on a rubber band’
This problem derives from different single problems, which accumulate to a delay
between the true mouse movement and displaying the movement of the mouse
pointer on the screen. Depending to our measurements, a delay of approx. 100150msec are recognized as disturbing.
The total delay comes from (time values are approx. values):
•
5 to 15msec for mouse movement and data transmission to CPU
•
50 to 70msec data processing time in the CPU until the changed data
reach the graphic card output connector
•
15 to 45mcec getting the graphic data into the local unit of the
extender system and transmitting to the remote unit (60 to 20fps)
•
10 to 100msec data processing time in the display until the data are
displayed on the screen (where 15msec normally are only reacht by
CRT tubes)
In total there are delay times between 85 and up to 230msec possible, where most
of this delay is NOT caused by the extender system (Extender based delay is 5 to
15msec data transfer to the CPU and 15 to 45msec frame transfer to the remote unit
– in total 20 to 60mesec. Depending to our experiences, even a step from 100msec
delay to 140msec (i.e. by inserting an extender system to a CPU-monitor link) may
cause visible effects.
Please note, that even a monitor directly connected to a CPU has a delay of 70 to
175msec. So (under special conditions) even the bare CPU/monitor link shows this
‘rubber band behaviour’. If you now insert an extender system, the problem may
occur and is (in false) dedicated to the extender system, where it only gives a small
part to the total problem
How to solve the problem: Use a display with a low delay time (NOTE: This is
NOT the reaction time indicated by the manufacturer. This reaction time is only the
time the display needs, to switch a black pixel to get white or vice versa, but not
how long it takes from receiving the data on the connector until they are displayed
on the screen.) Please use a lower resolution or use a desktop background which is
better suitable for compression: Avoid photos for background or horizontally
graduated colors – better use monochrome backgrounds. They allow higher
compression -> higher frame rates. If – and only if the link has frame dropping, a
reduction from 30fps to 60fps saves 17msec and from 20fps to 60fps saves 34msec.

APPENDIX C: AUDIO/SERIAL SUPPORT
Appendix C: Audio/Serial Support
Single head KVM devices:
The Audio/Serial allows bi-directional stereo audio and a full-duplex serial data link to be
sent across the regular interconnection cable in addition to keyboard, mouse and DVI video.
Dual head KVM devices and Media devices (no USB):
The Audio/Serial allows bi-directional stereo audio and a 3 wire (Tx/Rx - XON/XOFF) serial
data link to be sent across the regular interconnection cable in addition to keyboard, mouse
and DVI video.
To set up the extender’s audio and serial link, please follow all of the instructions detailed in
this appendix. If you have any questions, contact Technical Support.
Serial Interface - Set Up and Operation
No setting up or user adjustments are required. Please note that the serial link is always
active.
Please bear in mind that the Remote Unit’s serial port is wired as DTE (i.e. the same as that
on a PC). To connect a serial printer (or other DTE rather than DCE device) to the Remote
Unit, you will need a Null-Modem (crossover) cable between the Remote Unit and the
printer.
A serial touch screen may be plugged directly into the Remote Unit.
Please note, that media- and Dual head KVM Extender
support a 3-wire- connection only (Tx/Rx/GND). Attached
devices must support software handshake (XON(XOFF).
Serial Interface - Handling Multiple Serial Devices (Singlehead KVM
devices only!)
The extender’s serial interface transmits/receives six signals (3 signals in each direction).
Normally four of these signals are used for hardware handshaking (in addition to TX & RX).
However, because each handshaking line can support signals up to 19,200 Baud it is possible
to configure the serial interface to handle up to three simple 2-wire (Tx/Rx only) serial links.
Select XON/XOFF software flow control on the remote device and PC.
To do this you will need to construct a custom breakout cable. Please contact technical
support for further information.
45
DVI-D FIBER KVM-EXTENDER
Audio Interface - Set Up and Operation
The audio interface is line-level and is designed to take the output from a sound card (or other
line-level) source and be connected to a set of powered speakers at the other end of the link.
Stereo audio may be transmitted either way across the link (simultaneously). No set up is
required unless a microphone is connected to the remote unit.
Connect up the extender as follows:
Take the line-level output from your sound card (green connector) and connect to ‘Line In’ on
the extender.
A set of powered speakers may be connected directly to ‘Line Out’ at the opposite end of the
link.
Audio Interface - Using a Microphone
A microphone may be plugged into the ‘Line In’ connector on the Remote Unit.
There are two ways of setting up a microphone:
•
The Local Unit’s ‘Line Out’ connection should normally be wired to the microphone
input (Red) on your sound card. The sound card should then be set up to provide
additional amplification (+20dB). This is the preferred connection method.
•
Alternatively, the Remote Unit itself can provide microphone amplification. To set this,
open up the Remote Unit and locate the jumper labeled ‘MIC’ on the daughter board.
Connect this jumper across the pins. The Local Unit’s ‘Line Out’ connection should then
be wired to ‘Line In’ (Blue) on your sound card.
If your microphone is already amplified, follow the second method but DO NOT install the
amplification jumper in the Remote Unit.
