ou know how it works with keyboard/video/mouse switching:
Everybody and his brother makes
little boxes that you can plug two
(or maybe four) standard IBM
PS/2 compatible PCs into, along
with one monitor, one keyboard,
and one mouse (two-button mice
only, please!). A lot of these
“switches” even work. Sort of.
But what if you want to use
one KVM-switching system to
manage different hardware
platforms through a variety of
user equipment? Or to control
dozens or hundreds of CPUs?
What if you want multiple users to
do it securely from many widely
scattered user stations? What if
you want on-screen menus? Or
terminal-based serial control for
routers and other equipment?
The ServSwitch Multi, our
most sophisticated electronic KVMswitching system, is a reliable,
flexible solution for anything from
a single desktop to virtually your
whole enterprise. You can attach
as many as 3048 IBM PS/2,
PC/AT , or RS/6000 , Apple

Macintosh , Sun Microsystems ,
or SGI™ compatible CPUs to a
ServSwitch Multi system and use
a single monitor, keyboard, and
mouse to administer them all. Or
hook up a set of ServSwitch Multi
Hubs to administer hundreds of
CPUs from dozens of stations.
The Multi supports most IBM,
Mac , and Sun video types at
resolutions up to 1280 x 1024 at
90 Hz, or 1600 x 1200 at 60 Hz. You
can use IBM PS/2, PC/AT, Mac, or
Sun type keyboards and mice at
your user stations. If you use its
“audio cables,” the ServSwitch
Multi can also switch access to an
RS-232 device such as an external
modem or serial printer, as well
as audio input (microphone) and
output (headphones or speakers).
The key to the ServSwitch
Multi’s super versatility is its modular chassis design. To add, move,
or remove capacity or features,
just install, swap, or extract plug-in
cards from any chassis—even if
the chassis is powered. And when
firmware updates are released
(available through our Web site,
®
®
®
®
www.blackbox.com), you can
flash-upgrade chassis and cards.
The available models
The ServSwitch Multi Base
Unit (KV150A-R2) has an integral
“local console” module accessible through its front panel. You
can plug a nearby user station
directly into the local-console
connectors (although this station
won’t be secure and won’t have
an on-screen display). There are
also 13 multipurpose card slots on
its rear panel, but one of these is
an “option slot” that should only
hold a non-CPU card. If you like,
you can use a Rackmount Kit
(RMK19L) to put the Base Unit in
3U of space in a 19" rack.
If you only need to switch a few
CPUs or if you just need a tiny
“headquarters unit”, a Multi MX
(KV155A) is very similar to the
Base Unit, but it is much narrower, can’t be rackmounted, and
only has four card slots. (All of
these can be used for CPU cards.)
The ServSwitch Multi
Expansion Chassis (“EXP” for
short, KV160A-R2), is what we
consider the “standard” chassis
that’s most suitable for the
majority of applications. It’s the
same size as the Base Unit, but
it has no local-console module
and no option slot. Instead, it has
14 rear-panel card slots, any of
which can be used for any type of
card. It’s rackmountable with the
RMK19LE Rackmount Kit.
If you’ll have more than four
users in your system, consider
cascading chassis of the
ServSwitch Multi SB (KV162RA).
Whereas the other non-Hub Multi
models only have enough video
paths to handle four independent
system users at a time, the SB
supports eight independent
system users (although no more
than four can be attached to any
one chassis). The SB physically
resembles the EXP and, like the
EXP, has 14 rear-panel card slots.
However, the SB can be rackmounted in 3U of space right out
of the box; it has “rackmount
ears” permanently attached to it,
so it doesn’t require a separate kit.
The ServSwitch Multi Hub
(KV170RA) isn’t like the other
chassis. It’s designed to function
as a central concentrator that
simplifies cabling in very large
cascaded Multi systems, typically
those with more than 10 user
stations and more than 10 CPUs.
Its nine horizontal rear-panel slots
can only accept Transmit and
Receive Modules; CAT5 cable
runs from these to CAT5 Expansion Receive and Transmit Cards
installed in non-Hub Multi chassis.
Like the SB, the Hub can be rackmounted right out of the box; it
takes up 7U of space.
The cards, modules, and cables
All sorts of cards are available
for the ServSwitch Multi system.
For example, for each computer
CPU you want to attach to the
system, install one Autosensing
CPU Interface Card (“CPU Card”
or “ACIC” for short, KV2000C). It
has an HD44 connector that can
be connected to a CPU’s I/O ports
with a convenient one-to-many
server cable (KV2020-R2, etc.).
Then there are the “User
Cards.” They have an HD62
connector that can be attached to
keyboards, monitors, mice, and
other user-station equipment with
a one-to-many user cable
(KV2505, etc.). There are two
types of these cards:
• For systems in which security
isn’t a concern and neither is
using keyboard commands
rather than on-screen menus,
install one Universal User
Interface Card (“UUIC” for short,
KV2500C) for each keyboard/
monitor/mouse/etc. user station.
• If you’d like to be able to use
on-screen menus to control the
system (even to naming and
administering channels and
users), or if you’d like to maintain higher levels of security
(including password protection
Once you’ve planned your
ServSwitch Multi system layout,
the actual installation is fairly
easy. Start at the rear of a
chassis (A). Remove one of the
blank panels and slide in a
card (B). Plug in one or more
cables such as the user cable
shown here (C), then run them
to your devices.
2
and control of access rights),
install a User Interface Card
with On-Screen Display
(“UICD” for short, KV2550C-R3)
for each user station.
To link multiple ServSwitch
Multi chassis together, install an
Expansion Transmit Card in any
chassis in order to create two
data pathways out of the chassis
(toward user stations attached
to other chassis). Install an
Expansion Receive Card in order
to bring two data pathways into a
chassis (from CPUs attached to
other chassis). Each data pathway
will run from one Transmit Card
port to one Receive Card port.
Like the User Cards, there are
two varieties of Expansion Cards:
• The older “regular” versions of
these cards (KV1601C and
KV1602C respectively) have
two HD26 connectors and
require relatively thick custom
cable (KV1600, etc.).
each. (The Module ports don’t
support the serial and audio data
carried on the Expansion Card
ports’ third RJ-45.)
There are even cards that let
you perform terminal-based serial
management of routers and other
equipment. Each Serial Control
Card (KV1609C) has four RJ-45
connectors that function as serial
ports. Run CAT5 cable from these
to modular adapters attached to
the devices you want to manage.
Then install a single Management
Card (KV1608C-R3). It has a DB9
connector like the smaller serial
ports on current IBM type PCs.
Run a null-modem cable to a PC
running a terminal emulator—
either one of your user station
CPUs or a dedicated machine—
and you can open sessions with
any of the devices attached to any
of your Serial Control Cards.
• The newer CAT5 versions of
the cards (KV1603C and KV1604C
respectively) have six RJ-45
connectors (three for each
port) and require CAT5 cable
(EYN737MS) instead.
You’ll need the CAT5 versions
of the Expansion Cards if you’re
using a ServSwitch Multi Hub in
your system. This is because
the Hub’s Transmit and Receive
Modules are specifically
designed for communication with
the CAT5 cards. Each Module has
16 ports with 2 RJ-45 connectors

This illustration, which includes the user stations but not the CPUs, shows the advantage of the ServSwitch
Multi SB. If these Multi models are SBs, the user on Switch 1 will be able to independently switch to any
computer on Switch 2 (“CPU E” through “CPU I”), even though there are already four users on Switch 2. If
these models are EXPs or Base Units, the four users on Switch 2 are occupying all four of the system’s data
pathways, so the user on Switch 1 would have to share access to any of the Switch 2 CPUs. Use ServSwitch
Multi SBs if more than four users will need independent access to the CPUs on any chassis in your system.

Connectors on User and Server Cables
ser Cables run from User Cards installed in the ServSwitch Multi to your user stations. Server Cables run from CPU Cards installed in the
ServSwitch Multi to your CPUs. All of these cables have a single high-density connector on the switch end (HD62 for User Cables, HD44 for
Server Cables) and multiple connectors at the other end.
All standard User Cables have an HD15 female for a multisync monitor to plug into and a DB9 male for a serial mouse or trackball. All audio
cables add to these another DB9 male for a non-mouse serial device, a mono RCA jack for a microphone, and a stereo RCA jack for speakers or
headphones. Where the User Cables differ is in their main keyboard and mouse connectors. The PC type cables have three of these: a 5-pin DIN
female for an older PC/AT keyboard plus a pair of 6-pin mini-DIN females for a PS/2 mouse and keyboard respectively. The Mac type cables have a
single 4-pin mini-DIN female for an ADB (Apple) keyboard and mouse. The Sun type cables have a single 8-pin mini-DIN female for a Sun keyboard
and mouse.
IBM type Server Cables have an HD15 male to attach to the CPU’s video port, a 5-pin DIN male for a PC/AT keyboard port, two 6-pin mini-DIN
males for PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports respectively, and a DB9 female for a serial mouse port. The IBM type audio cable adds a second DB9
female for another serial port, plus a mono RCA plug for the CPU’s audio in port and a stereo RCA plug for the CPU’s audio out port.
Mac and Sun type Server Cables each come in two different versions. One version has the traditional video connector (DB15 male for Mac,
13W3 male for Sun) to plug into the video port of an older CPU. The other version has an HD15 male to plug into the VGA video port of a newer CPU.
These Server Cables have the standard connector (4-pin mini-DIN male for Mac, 8-pin mini-DIN male for Sun) to attach to the CPU’s keyboard/
mouse port. The Mac and Sun audio cables add a mono RCA plug for the CPU’s audio-in port and a stereo RCA plug for the CPU’s audio-out port.

Technically Speaking
• ServSwitch Multis support
many video standards; set
DIP switches on the CPU
Interface Cards for your
desired video type, as well
as for shared-use timeout
(discussed later in this
section) and keyboard
translation. (Using nonmultisync monitors with
some platforms will require
special video adapters.)
The complete
package
• ServSwitch Multi Base
Units, MXs, EXPs, and SBs
ship from the factory with a
power cord and a manual.
• ServSwitch Multi Hubs ship
from the factory with two
power supplies and two fan
assemblies. (To comply with
electrical safety regulations
and prevent shipping
damage, the power supplies
and fans are shipped
uninstalled.) You’ll also
receive two power cords
and a manual.
5
• The units also support many
types of keyboards and mice,
as long as each station’s
keyboard and mouse are the
same type (unless you’re
using a PC serial mouse,
which is supported by all
platforms’ cabling). See the
Specifications page.
• When multiple stations are
attached to the ServSwitch
Multi, user access to CPUs
can either be shared or
independent. Stations with
shared access can all see
Other things you
will need
• CPU Interface Cards for
each CPU you want to
connect to the ServSwitch
Multi.
• User Interface Cards for
each user station you want
to connect to the
ServSwitch Multi.
• A keyboard and mouse. We
recommend that these be
Sun type if you’ll be managing
any Sun CPUs, or IBM type
otherwise. (Do not use an
Apple keyboard and mouse
if you’re mixing platforms;
the one-button Apple mouse
is not able to trigger Sun and
IBM functions controlled by
and hear the output of a
given CPU, but only one of
them can input commands
and data at any given time.
When there is no keyboard
or mouse input from the
active station for a userselectable timeout period,
another station may become
active. Stations with
independent access, on
the other hand, can input
commands and data
independently of each other.
If each one has access to all
the right and center mouse
buttons.)
• A monitor. If you’re mixing
platforms, we recommend a
true multiscan, multisync
monitor, capable of synching
to each CPU’s video-output
frequencies and compatible
with all of the CPUs’ video
cards. Also, if one of the
multiple platforms is IBM,
the monitor must be able to
accept both separate
horizontal/vertical sync
and composite sync.
Such monitors are
widely available.
We recommend that the
monitor be able to display a
maximum resolution of not
less than 1280 x 1024 at a
maximum refresh rate of
not less than 75 Hz.
CPUs, there can only be two
(MX), four (Base Unit or EXP),
or eight (SB) independent
stations in the system at the
same time on a full-size
Switch (only two on an MX).
• ServSwitch Multis can be
interconnected, but are not
designed to be cascaded
with any other Serv type
switch except the ServSelect.
Other things you
might need
• Video adapters (see page 8).
• Headphones, speakers, or
microphones for audio I/O.
• Serial cable to connect a
shared serial device.
• Expansion Cables and
Transmit and Receive Cards/
Modules for applications
that exceed the capacity of a
single chassis.
• User Interface Cards with
On-Screen Display for
display-menu convenience.
• A Management Card, one or
more Serial Control Cards,
and the associated cables
for terminal-based device
control.
Before the ServSwitch Multi Hub...
Using only ServSwitch Multi EXP chassis (because too many Expansion Cards are required for any chassis to
host more than 4 users or CPUs), connecting 16 users to 16 computers so that all of the users have
independent access to all of the computers requires 8 EXP chassis, 32 CAT5 Transmit Cards, 32 CAT5
Receive Cards, and 128 CAT5 expansion cables.
Each Line between
Two Chassis
Represents Eight
Expansion Cables
...and after.
If you use a Hub with 1 Transmit Module and 1 Receive Module installed, you can use 2 SB chassis to host
CPUs instead of 4 EXP chassis, plus you’ll only need 8 CAT5 Transmit Cards, 8 CAT5 Receive Cards, and
64 expansion cables—a significant savings that only gets bigger as you add more users and CPUs. (SBs
should be used to concentrate CPUs, as shown here, rather than users. User Cards need more power and
create more heat than CPU Cards, and the SB isn’t always able to handle more than four of them.)
