Overview
The Master View CS-9134 and CS-9138 KVM Switches are control units that
allow access to multiple computers from a single console (keyboard, monitor,
and mouse). Before the development of the Master View, the only way to control
multiple computers from a single console was through a complex and costly
network. Now, with the Master View CS-9134/CS-9138, you can easily access
multiple computers in a cost effective manner.
A single Master View CS-9134 or CS-9138 can control up to 4 or 8 computers,
respectively. Since units can be cascaded to three levels, in a full three stage
installation, up to 21 CS-9134 Master Views can control up to 64 computers,
and up to 73 CS-9138 Master Views can control up to 512 computers - all from
a single console.
Setup is fast and easy; plugging cables into their appropriate ports is all that is
entailed. There is no software to configure, so there is no need to get involved in
complex installation routines or be concerned with incompatibility problems.
Since the Master View CS-9134/CS-9138 intercepts keyboard input directly, it
works on any hardware platform and with all operating systems.
There are three convenient methods to access any computer connected to the
installation: 1) using push button port selection switches located on each unit’s
front panel; 2) entering Hotkey combinations from the keyboard; and 3)
selecting from menus provided by the OSD (On Screen Display) feature. A
powerful Quick View Scan feature also permits auto scanning and monitoring
the activities of all computers running on the installation one by one.
There is no better way to save time and money than with a Master View
CS-9134/CS-9138 installation. By allowing a single console to manage all the
attached computers, a Master View CS-9134/CS-9138 installation: 1) eliminates
the expense of having to purchase a separate keyboard, monitor, and mouse for
each computer; 2) saves all the space those extra components would take up;
3) saves on energy costs; and 4) eliminates the inconvenience and wasted
effort involved in constantly moving from one computer to another.

Cables
Use of substandard cables may damage the connected devices or degrade overall
performance. For optimum signal integrity and to simplify the layout, we strongly
recommend that you use the following high quality CS Custom Cable sets:
Function
CS Part Number
AT (5 pin DIN) Keyboard and Serial Mouse
PS/2 (6 pin mini-DIN) Keyboard and PS/2 Mouse
2L-1001P/C (1.8 m) or
2L-1003P/C (3 m)
Cascade Master View Units
Note: 1. If your PC uses a standard AT style keyboard socket you will need to
purchase a PS/2-to-AT keyboard adapter (Part No. 2A-106, or any
standard keyboard adapter), in order to plug the cable into the
computer’ s keyboard port.
2. If your PC uses a standard 9 pin serial port for the mouse, you will
need to purchase a PS/2-to-Serial mouse adapter (Part No. 2A-105; a
standard mouse adapter will probably not work), in order to plug the
cable into the computer’ s serial port.
3. Because of the wiring and pin assignments, you cannot use a
Serial-to-PS/2 adapter at the end that plugs into the CS-9134 or
CS-9138. Therefore, attempting to use a standard serial extender
cable with adapters at both ends will fail.

Installation
Before you Begin
1. Make sure that power to all the devices you will be connecting
up have been turned off. You must unplug the power cords of
any computers that have the Keyboard Power On function.
Otherwise, the switch will receive power from the system.
2. To prevent damage to your equipment due to ground potential
difference, make sure that all devices on the installation are properly
grounded. Consult your dealer for technical details, if necessary.
Single Station Installation
The most basic installation is a Single Stage installation, in which no additional
Master View’ s are cascaded down from the first unit. To set up a single stage
installation do the following:
1. Plug your keyboard, mouse, and monitor into the unit’ s Console Ports.
2. In a Single Stage Installation, PCs connect to all of the Master View’ s CPU
ports (1 - 4 for the CS-9134; 1 - 8 for the CS-9138). Use connector cable sets
(as described in the Cables section on p. 4), to connect the monitor,
keyboard and mouse ports of the computers to any available Master View
CPU Port.
3. If you choose to use external power, plug the power adapter into an AC
power source, then plug the cable into the Master View’ s Power Jack.
The unit is designed for non-powered operation in a single stage
installation by taking its power from the computers via the keyboard
and mouse cables. If a computer, only supplies 3.3V of power
instead of 5V for the keyboard and mouse (as in the case of
Notebooks, for example), the unit will not receive enough power,
and you will need to use the external power adapter.
4. Turn on the power to the computers.
Note: If you choose to use external power, the unit must be plugged in and
receiving power prior to turning on the power to the computers.

CS-9134 / CS-9138 User Manual
2001-05-21
Two Stage Installation
To control even more computers, up to four (CS-9134) or eight (CS-9138)
additional Master View units can be cascaded from the CPU ports of the First
Stage unit. The cascaded Master Views that connect back to the First Stage unit
are considered Second Stage units.
As many as 16 (CS-9134) or 64 (CS-9138) computers can be controlled in a
complete two stage installation. Tables showing the relation between the
number of computers and the number of Master View units needed to control
them are provided in the Appendix.
Note: Mixing different Master View models on the same installation can cause
problems with OSD port switching. We strongly recommend that all
cascaded units be the same model as the First Stage unit.
To set up a two stage installation, do the following:
1. Make sure that power to all the devices you will be connecting up, including
all preexisting devices on the installation, have been turned off.
2. Use a connector cable set (described in the Cables section, p. 4), to connect
any available CPU port on the First Stage unit to the Console Port
connectors of the Second Stage unit.
3. Use connector cable sets (described in the Cables section, p. 4), to connect
any available CPU port on the Second Stage unit to the video, keyboard and
mouse ports of the computer you are installing.
4. Repeat steps 1 - 3 for any other Second Stage units you wish to connect.
5. For each Second Stage unit: Plug the power adapter into an AC source; plug
the power adapter cable into the Master View’ s Power Jack.
6. For the First Stage Master View unit: Plug the power adapter into an AC
source; plug the power adapter cable into the Master View’ s Power Jack.
7. Turn on the power to all the computers.
Note: The Power On sequence requires that all Second Stage units be
powered on first. After all the Second Stage units have been powered
on, then the First Stage unit must be powered on next. After the
Second and First stage units have been powered on, the computers
can be powered on.

Three Stage Installation
The procedures for setting up a three stage installation are essentially the same as
for a two stage installation. With a three stage setup, as many as 64 (CS-9134) or
512 (CS-9138) computers can be controlled in a complete installation.
A table showing the relation between the number of computers and the number
of Master View units needed to control them is provided in the Appendix.
Note: Master View units cannot be cascaded beyond the third level.
To set up a three stage installation, do the following:
1. Make sure that power to all the devices you will be connecting up, including
all preexisting devices on the installation, have been turned off.
2. Use a connector cable set (described in the Cables section, p. 4), to connect
any available CPU port on the Second Stage unit to the Console Port
connectors of the of the Third Stage unit.
3. Use connector cable sets (described in the Cables section, p. 4), to connect
any available CPU port on the Third Stage unit to the video, keyboard and
mouse ports of the computers you are installing, as shown in the diagram on
page 11.

4. Repeat steps 1 - 3 for any other Third Stage units you wish to connect.
5. For each Third Stage unit: Plug the power adapter into an AC source; plug
the power adapter cable into the Master View’ s Power Jack.
6. For each Second Stage unit: Plug the power adapter into an AC source; plug
the power adapter cable into the Master View’ s Power Jack.
7. For the First Stage Master View unit: Plug the power adapter into an AC
source; plug the power adapter cable into the Master View’ s Power Jack.
8. Turn on the power to all the computers.
Note: The Power On sequence requires that all Third Stage units be powered
on first. After they are all on, the Second Stage units must be powered
on next. After all the Second Stage units are on, the First Stage unit must
be powered on. Only after all the Master Views have been powered on in
this sequence, can the computers be powered on.

Operation
Hot Plugging
The Master View CS-9134/CS-9138 supports hot plugging - components can be
removed and added back into the installation by unplugging their cables from
the ports without the need to shut the unit down. In order for hot plugging to
work properly, however, these procedures must be followed:
w Hot Plugging CPU Ports:
When hot plugging cables from the CPU ports:
1. The cable must be plugged back into the same port it was removed from.
2. The mouse cable must be plugged in before the keyboard cable.
3. After plugging the cables back in, you must perform a KVM Reset on the
First Stage unit (by pressing the Reset switch In).
w Hot Plugging Console Ports:
The units support hot plugging of the console keyboard, monitor, and mouse
cables. When hot plugging the mouse from the console mouse port:
1. You may unplug the mouse and plug it back in again (to reset the mouse,
for example), as long as you use the same mouse.
2. If you plug in a different mouse, all the stations and all the computers on
the installation must be shut down for 10 seconds, then restarted. (Refer
back to the note describing the Power On sequence on p. 11, if
necessary.)
Note: If, after hot plugging (or at any other time), there is no response to
mouse and/or keyboard input, simultaneously press and hold Port
Select buttons 1 and 2 on the First Stage unit for 3 seconds to
perform a Keyboard and Mouse reset.
Powering Off and Restarting
If it becomes necessary to Power Off one of the Master View units, before
starting it back up you must do the following:
1. Shut down all the computers that are attached to the shut down unit, as well as
all the Master View stations and all the computers that are cascaded down from
it (all the child Master View stations and the computers attached to them).
Note: 1. You must unplug the power cords of any computers that have the
Keyboard Power On function that are connected to the shut down switches.
Otherwise, the switches will still receive power from the computers.
2. If the Master View unit is operating under external power, unplug
the power adapter cable.
12
CS-9134 / CS-9138 User Manual
2001-05-21
2. Wait 10 seconds, then plug the Master Views back in, starting with the last
station in the chain and working back to the station you originally shut down.
3. After all the Master View’ s are up, power On the computers, starting with the
ones attached to the last station in the chain and working back to the station
you originally shut down.
Port Selection
The Master View CS-9134/CS-9138 provides three methods to obtain instant
access to any computer in your installation: Manual; Hotkey; and OSD.
w Manual
Simply press the appropriate Port Selection Switch on the Master View’ s
front panel. After you press the switch, the Selected LED lights to indicate
that the port is currently selected. The OSD (see p. 15) automatically
switches to highlight the computer that you have selected.
Note: 1. On a cascaded installation, you must press the Port Selection
switch on the Master View Station that connects directly to the
computer you want to access.
2. Simultaneously pressing Port Selection buttons 3 and 4 (CS-9134) or
7 and 8 (CS-9138) on the First Stage unit initiates the Quick View
Scan feature in which all the ports currently selected for Quick View
scanning with the OSD’ s F4 QV function (see p. 19), are cycled
through. The length of time spent on each port is determined with the
Scan Duration setting under the OSD’ s F6 SET function (see p. 20).
w Hot Key Navigation
Hotkey navigation allows you to conveniently access connected computers
directly from the keyboard, instead of having to manually select them by pressing
Port Selection switches. To select a port with the Hotkey method, do the following:
1. Press [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[Alt] to invoke the hotkey function.
2. Key in the Port ID number (see Port ID Numbering on p. 14), then press
[Enter].
Note: 1. Press the keys in sequence - one key at a time. First [Ctrl], then
[Shift], then [Alt].
2. After invoking the hotkey function with the [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[Alt]
combination, you must key in the Port ID and press [Enter] within 1
second for each keypress.
w OSD
OSD (On Screen Display), provides a menu driven interface to handle the
switching procedure to provide instant access to any computer on the
installation. OSD operation is discussed in detail beginning on p. 15.

Port ID Numbering
Each CPU port on a Master View installation is assigned a unique Port ID. You
can directly access any computer on any level of the installation by specifying
the Port ID of the CPU port that the computer is connected to - either with the
Hotkey port selection method, or with the OSD.
The Port ID is a one, two, or three digit number. It is determined by the Stage
Level and CPU port number of the Master View unit that a computer is
connected to. The first digit represents the CPU port number of the First Stage
unit; the second digit represents the CPU Port number of the Second Stage unit;
the third digit represents the CPU port number of the Third Stage unit.
For example, a computer attached to a First Stage unit has a one digit Port ID
(from 1 to 4 for the CS-9134; from 1 to 8 for the CS-9138), that corresponds to
the CPU port number that the computer is connected to.
A computer attached to a Second Stage unit has a two digit Port ID. The first
digit represents the CPU port number, on the First Stage unit that the Second
Stage unit links back to; the second digit represents the CPU port number on
the Second Stage unit that the computer is connected to. Therefore, a Port ID of
23 would refer to a computer that is connected to CPU port 3 of a Second
Stage unit that links back to CPU port 2 of the First Stage unit.
Likewise, a computer attached to a Third Stage unit has a three digit Port ID.
One with a Port ID of 241 would be connected to CPU port 1 of a Third Stage
unit, that links back to CPU port 4 of a Second Stage unit, which, in turn, links
back to CPU port 2 of the First Stage unit.
Port Key In Examples
1. To access a computer attached to port 3 of a Single Stage installation, key in
3 for the Port ID, as follows:

OSD
OSD Overview
On Screen Display (OSD), provides a menu driven interface to handle the
computer switching procedure. Although Hotkey switching still works, using
OSD is a great deal more convenient - especially in large, cascaded
installations where it is difficult to keep track of which port a particular computer
is attached to.
All operations start from the OSD Main Menu. To pop up the Main Menu, tap
either Ctrl key twice.
Note: 1. The keys must be on the same side (both left, or both right).
2. You can optionally change the hotkey to the Scroll Lock key (see OSD
Activating Hotkey under the F6 SET function on p. 20), in which case
you would press [Scroll Lock] twice.
When you invoke the OSD, a screen similar to the one below appears:

methods.

OSD Navigation
w [Esc] cancels the current selection, or dismisses the current menu and
moves back to the menu one level above. If you are at the highest menu
level, it deactivates OSD.
w Use the Up and Down Arrow Keys or Click the Up and Down Triangle
symbols (▲▼) to move up or down through the list one line at a time.
w Use [Pg Up] and [Pg Dn] or Click the Up and Down Arrow symbols (éê) to
move up or down through the list one screen at a time.
w To activate a port, move the Highlight Bar to it then press [Enter].
w After executing any action, you automatically go back to the menu one level
above.
OSD Hotkey Navigation
Hotkey navigation can also be used under OSD as follows:
1. From the OSD Main Menu, press [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[Alt].
2. Key in the Port ID for the computer you wish to access (see Port ID
Numbering, p. 14), then press [Enter].
The console now controls the computer that you have selected, and the OSD
automatically closes.
When you use this method, note the following:
w Although access switches to the port you just specified, the highlight bar on
the OSD screen doesn’ t move.
w You must press [Ctrl], [Shift], [Alt] one after the other - not all at the same time.
w After pressing the [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[Alt] combination, you must key in the Port ID
and press [Enter] within 1 second for each keypress.
w The keys must be pressed and released one key at a time.
w Number keys must be pressed from the regular keyboard; not from the
numeric keypad.
w If you submit an incorrect Port ID, an error message displays, and you are
returned to the OSD Main Menu.

OSD Main Menu Headings
Heading
Explanation
PN
This column lists the Port ID numbers (Station Number - Port Number) for
all the CPU ports on the installation. The simplest method to access a
particular computer is move the Highlight Bar to it, then press [Enter].
QV
If a port has been selected for Quick View scanning (see F2 and F4,
below), an arrowhead displays in this column to indicate so.
PC
A plus sign ( + )displays in this column to indicate the computers that are
Powered On and are On Line.
NAME
If a port has been given a name (see F5, below), its name appears in this
column.
The Function Keys
Pressing a Function Key brings up a submenu that is used to configure and
control the OSD. For example, you can: rapidly switch to any port; scan selected
ports only; limit the list you wish to view; designate a port for Quick View
scanning; create or edit a port name; or make OSD setting adjustments.
w F1 GOTO:
GOTO allows you to switch directly to a port by either of the following two
methods.
1. Move the Highlight Bar to the port you want, then press [Enter].
2. Key in the Port ID or Name, then press [Enter].
Note: GOTO has a special feature that narrows the list of available
choices as you type the name. For example, if the first letter you
type is a, the list only displays those ports whose names begin with
a. If the next letter you type is b, the list is narrows down even
further to only those ports whose names begin with ab, etc.
To return to the OSD Main Menu without making a choice, press [Esc].

w F2 SCAN:
Pressing [F2] initiates Quick View Scanning, in which the OSD cycles
through all the ports that have been selected for this with the QV feature (see
F4 QV, below). It stays on each port for the amount of time set with the Scan
Duration setting under the F6 SET function (see p. 20). When you want to
stop at a particular location, press the [Spacebar] to stop scanning.
Note: 1. If the scanning stops on an empty port, or one where the computer
is attached but is powered Off, the monitor screen will be blank,
and the mouse and keyboard will have no effect. After the Scan
Duration time is up, the Scan function will move on to the next port.
2. As each port is accessed, an S appears in front of the Port ID
displayed on the console monitor to indicate that it is being
accessed under Quick View Scan Mode.
w F3 LIST:
This function lets you broaden or narrow the scope of which ports the OSD
lists. On the submenu that appears, an icon of a pointing finger indicates the
currently selected choice. To change a setting, move the highlight bar to the
choice you want, then press [Enter]. An explanation of the settings is given in
the table below:
