Chapter 1
Introduction
Overview
The CE610 USB 2.0 DVI KVM Extender supports HDBaseT technology and
uses only one Cat 5e cable to extend DVI and USB signals up to 100 m. The
CE610 is equipped with USB connectors which allow you to extend any USB
device between the units. The USB functionality provides not only peripheral
sharing but also provides support for touch panel control and file transfer. The
CE610 is ideal for transportation centers, medical facilities, and shopping
malls, and for syncing files and folders between portable and desktop
computers.
The CE610 allows access to a computer system from a remote console (USB
keyboard, monitor, and mouse). Because it allows access to a computer system
from a remote console, the CE610 is perfect for use in any type of installation
where you need to place the console where it is conveniently accessible, but
you want the system equipment to reside in a safe location – away from the dust
and dirt of the factory floor, or the harsh environmental influence of a
construction site, for example. This allows users to deploy system equipment
over large distances.
The CE610 is 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 the
most convenient location for user access. This is ideal for managing highly
confidential data systems.
The CE610 uses one Cat 5e cable (DVI Single Link) to support up to 1920 x
1200 video resolution.
The CE610 improves on previous designs by: 1) using inexpensive Cat 5e
cable instead of bulkier, more expensive, standard DVI cables, for a much
neater, more convenient, more reliable data transfer connection; and 2)
featuring a custom ASIC to ensure the utmost in reliability and compatibility.
Setup is as easy as can be – simply connect the computer system box; run the
Cat 5e cable up to 100 meters to the Remote Unit; and plug the remote console
into the Remote Unit.
Chapter 1. Introduction

Installation
Grounding
To prevent damage to your installation it is important that all devices are
properly grounded.
1. Use a grounding wire to ground both units by connecting one end of the
wire to the grounding terminal, and the other end of the wire to a suitable
grounded object.
2. Make sure that the computer that the Local Unit connects to and the
monitor that the Remote Unit connects to are properly grounded.
Cat 5e cable
up to 300 m

Chapter 2. Hardware Setup
3. For increased grounding protection, use STP (shielded twisted pair) cable
to connect the Local and Remote Units. There are two methods that can be
used:
a) In addition to the eight paired wires, STP cable also contains a
grounding wire. Solder this wire to the RJ-45 connector as shown in the
diagram below:
b) The second method is to use the STP cable shielding for grounding. In
this case, make sure that the shielding makes tight contact with the top
inside of the RJ-45 connector as shown in the diagram below:
In either case, make sure that the sides of the RJ-45 connector make tight
contact with the grounding contacts on the sides of the RJ-45 socket as
shown in the diagram below:

Š The device cabinet is provided with slots and openings to allow for
adequate ventilation. To ensure reliable operation, and to protect against
overheating, these openings must never be blocked or covered.
Š The device should never be placed on a soft surface (bed, sofa, rug, etc.) as
this will block its ventilation openings. Likewise, the device should not be
placed in a built in enclosure unless adequate ventilation has been provided.
Š Never spill liquid of any kind on the device.
Š Unplug the device from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid
or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
Š The device should be operated from the type of power source indicated on
the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power available,
consult your dealer or local power company.
Š The device is designed for IT power distribution systems with 230V
phase-to-phase voltage.
Š To prevent damage to your installation, it is important that all devices are
properly grounded.
Š The device is equipped with a 3-wire grounding type plug. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact your
electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not attempt to defeat the
purpose of the grounding-type plug. Always follow your local/national
wiring codes.
Š Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord or cables. Route the
power cord and cables so that they cannot be stepped on or tripped over.

Appendix
Mounting
Š Before working on the rack, make sure that the stabilizers are secured to
the rack, extended to the floor, and that the full weight of the rack rests on
the floor. Install front and side stabilizers on a single rack or front
stabilizers for joined multiple racks before working on the rack.
Š Always load the rack from the bottom up, and load the heaviest item in the
rack first.
Š Make sure that the rack is level and stable before extending a device from
the rack.
Š Use caution when pressing the device rail release latches and sliding a
device into or out of a rack; the slide rails can pinch your fingers.
Š After a device is inserted into the rack, carefully extend the rail into a
locking position, and then slide the device into the rack.
Š Do not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the
rack. The total rack load should not exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit
rating.
Š Make sure that all equipment used on the rack – including power strips and
other electrical connectors – is properly grounded.
Š Ensure that proper airflow is provided to devices in the rack.
