Chapter 1
Introduction
Overview
The CE680 / CE690 is a DVI Optical KVM Extender that overcomes the length
restriction of standard DVI cables by using optical fiber to send high definition
audio, video and control signals over long distance. It accepts audio-video
stream from a local source and serializes the data to pass over a single 3.125
Gbps optical link (for resolutions up to 1920x1200 @60Hz, 24-bits).
It can also extend the keyboard/mouse remote control signals, as well as
transfer RS-232 signals (up to 115kbps) in both directions, allowing you to
connect serial devices, such as barcode scanners. A USB port on the local and
remote unit rear panels lets you connect a USB touchscreen panel device,
which can access a computer connected at the local site. In addition, the CE680
/ CE690’s touchscreen support lets you take advantage of multi-point devices,
such as 10-point multi-touch displays, which can be useful when dealing with
highly interactive applications.
The CE680 / CE690 allows access to a computer system from both local and
remote consoles (USB keyboard, monitor, and mouse). Because it allows
access to a computer system from either the local or remote console, it 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.
Furthermore, the CE680 / CE690 takes advantage of fiber optic cable
technology for connecting the local and remote units, providing easy and quick
installation and long-range extension of DVI signals. It also has a built-in 8KV/
15KV ESD protection feature.
Setup is as easy as can be – simply connect the computer system box; run the
fiber optic cable up to 600 m / 20 km to the Remote Unit; and plug the remote
console into the Remote Unit.
