1. Thinklogical’s® Q-Series KMASS Modules
1.1.
Product Overview
Thinklogical’s Q-Series KMASS Modules provide users with a convenient, cost-effective and
space-saving way to extend audio and USB over fiber. Up to four modules can be housed in a
single, one rack unit Q-4300 Chassis, making the Q-Series an ideal solution where space, security
and economy are vital. And if one module is all you need do the job, Thinklogical also offers a
single-module Q-1300 chassis for desktop applications.
Incorporating standard SFP+ transceivers, the system uses fiber optic cables to allow the placement of
audio and USB devices up to 1000 meters (3280 feet) away from the controlling computer without
loss of signal or resolution. Installation is plug-and-play and no adjustments are necessary.
All Q-Series KMASS modules are connected by fiber optic cables to provide communications
between the transmitters and receivers. The transmitter module connects to a CPU with supplied
audio (unbalanced), USB and PS2 cables. The receiver module provides an interface to the
destination audio and USB devices.

1.2. System Features
Thinklogical’s Q-Series line of KMASS (Keyboard, Mouse, Audio, Serial, Stereo 3D) Modules
includes a variety of TX and RX models, designed to meet almost any data extension
applications. Each module can be used in our stand-alone Q-1300 Chassis or, for more
extensive applications, our two-module Q-2300 chassis or our four-module Q-4300 chassis,
which will each support any combinations of transmitters and receivers.
The Q-4300’s chassis allows up to four hot-swappable interface modules to be used in a variety of
applications, as either transmitters, receivers, or as transceivers. Q-Series KMASS modules support
two-way, unbalanced audio, high speed USB 2.0 (480 Mbps) and low speed USB HID (1.5 Mbps).
Installation possibilities are expanded with built-in support for either multi-mode or single mode fiber,
making this a convenient and cost effective solution to transmit quality data signals over long distances.
Each module is hot swappable, and in addition, the standard SFP+ optics (with LC connectors) are hot
swappable/pluggable.
Every Q-Series module is fully compatible with Thinklogical’s VXRouter® line of products.
1.2.1. The Q-Series Chassis
Each Q-Series Chassis provides a framework for mounting, powering, upgrading and interfacing
with a variety of modules that perform the functions of a KVM and video distribution system. The
Q-4300 chassis supports up to 4 modules, features redundant power supplies, an LCD/button interface
and provides convenient upgrade ports for the chassis and modules. Fans mounted inside the chassis
provide cooling and all modules and power supplies are hot swappable. The chassis may be rack or
desktop mounted. Other installable modules include our DVI and SDI lines of extenders. (See page 25
to contact a Thinklogical® sales representative for more details.)

3. Updating Q-Series KMASS Modules
Updates are available through Thinklogical®. For technical assistance, please call us at:
1-203-647-8700.
3.1. Chassis Firmware Downloads
Thinklogical’s® Q-4300 Chassis contains up-gradable firmware that controls its operation. Firmware
updates are sent to the Q-4300 Chassis by an application (KM_Download.exe) that can read which
Thinklogical® products are connected, then selects the appropriate file to send. The chassis firmware
controls the Alarms and the Front Panel.
Firmware files are stored in the following:
http://ftp.thinklogical.com/ftp/visualization/updates/Firmware.zip
The KM_Download.exe application is stored in:
http://ftp.thinklogical.com/ftp/visualization/updates/KmDownloadVxxx.zip
(where ‘Vxxx’ is the version number).
3.1.1. Firmware Update Preparation:
3.1.1.1 Retrieve Firmware.zip and the KmDownloadVxxx.zip application and place them in an
accessible directory in your CPU.
3.1.1.2. Install the KmDownload application by running setup.exe stored in
KmDownloadVxxx.zip.
3.1.1.3. Unzip the Firmware.zip file and place the contents in an accessible directory in your
CPU.
3.1.1.4. Ensure that the POWER ON/OFF switches located on the front of the Q-4300 chassis
are in the OFF position. Connect the supplied AC Power Cords to the two receptacles
located on the rear of the chassis and plug each one into a standard AC source. Turn
both POWER switches ON.
3.1.1.5. On the front panel of the chassis, the LCD will display the unit type and current revision.
Note the revision as shown.

3.1.2.2. Open the KM_Download application.
Select “Identify Product” and you will see the
name of the connected device.
NOTE: If you see “Logical Device not found,”
wait 5 seconds for the device to initialize and try
“Identify Product” again.
3.1.2.3. Select “Open File.” Navigate to the proper directory for the product being updated and click
on ‘open’ to initiate the file transfer. A progress bar indicates the file is being sent. DO NOT remove
the USB cable or power down the unit until the upgrade is complete.
3.1.2.4. When the download is complete, reset power to the chassis.
Also see the Q-4300 Chassis Firmware Upgrade Procedure in Appendix A on Page 28.
3.2. HID Microprocessor Programming
Each Q-Series KMASS Transmitter Module with USB HID has an HID PORT that serves as both an
HID Microprocessor Programming port and as a USB HID source. Each Q-Series KMASS Receiver
Module with USB HID has an UPDATE PORT that serves as an HID Microprocessor Programming
port.
A transmitter’s update port is a DEVICE port. A receiver’s update port is a HOST port.
DEVICE

Rev. B: August 2013
When updating the transmitter device port, the USB cable must be removed from the HID port
while the chassis power is off in order to reboot the module.
Repeat the steps in paragraph 3.1.2 for each of the update ports on the Q-Series KMASS Modules.
3.3. FPGA Downloads
Upgrades are available through Thinklogical. For technical assistance, please call us at:
1-203-647-8700.
To update a Module’s FPGA functionality, Install a USB cable from the CPU’s USB-A port to the USB-B
UPDATE Port on the front of the chassis (see diagram on page 17). Module FPGA functionality is
updated from the front panel and not from the connectors on the module.
The chassis is responsible for FPGA updates. Do not connect to the modules to update the FPGA.
3.3.1. FPGA Download Procedure:
Firmware files and revision numbers are stored in the following:
http://ftp.thinklogical.com/ftp/visualization/updates/
Then select FPGA_firmware.zip
The FPGA_Download.exe application & instructions are stored in:
http://ftp.thinklogical.com/ftp/visualization/updates/FPGA_upgrade.zip
3.3.2. FPGA Update Preparation:
1. Retrieve the Firmware files/revision numbers and the FPGA_Download application
/instructions and place them in an accessible directory in your CPU.
2. Copy the file FPGA_firmware.zip to a local directory and extract to a desired location.
3. Copy the file FPGA_upgrade.zip to a local directory.
4. Open the FPGA_upgrade.zip file and install the application files sent to the card stored in
FPGA_firmware.zip.
3.3.3. FPGA Update Procedure:
Complete steps 1-17 to update the FPGA:
STEP 1: If running Windows XP, the
Found New Hardware Wizard may open if
the Thinklogical product is being connected
to the PC for the first time. If the Wizard
does not open, proceed to Step 5
