BRIEF INTRODUCTION
The KVM Switch allows you to control several sets of personal computers by a keyboard, a mouse
and a monitor. In the meantime, you just need to connect the cable and turn on the power to
control up to 256 sets of personal computers without installing any additional interface card or
software.
Easy Installation
The 3-in-1 CPU Connector (VGA, Keyboard and Mouse) can save the installation time and space
and assure the correct signals. The universal AC power input of 100~240VAC, 50Hz~60Hz saves
you the trouble of finding the space for installing the Power Adaptor. You can install a cascade to
facilitate expansions or transportation without requiring a cascade cable or changing the KVM
configurations.
On-Screen Display (OSD) Menu
The embedded OSD control module lets you name the PC and KVM and modify the KVM
configuration, and the security mode can prevent others from turning on the KVM by mistake and
switching the linked PC from the OSD. Most conveniently, the OSD not only supports keyboard
operations, but also supports mouse clicking.
Enhanced Video Quality
The special video circuit design supports resolution up to 1280x1024, 75Hz, and also keeps the
same quality under the Cascade architecture.

Hot key and mouse clicking are applicable for switching a small section. You can select the
SVS (Smart View Setting) from the OSD of the PC first (for a quick switch of PC) and use the
keyboard (press the Ctrl key twice) or the mouse (press and hold the middle button while
pressing the left or right button) to switch to the previous or next set of PC.
Note:
The mouse must have at least 3 keys. As far as you select a PC with the SVS, you can use this
method for the switch.
• OSD (On Screen Display)
Press the NumLock on the keyboard twice or simultaneously press the Push Buttons 1 and 2 of
the Port Selection Switch on the KVM panel to start the OSD. Use the Up, Down and Enter
keys on the keyboard to switch or directly move the mouse to the target PC, and then double
click the left button.
Additionally, you also can use the numeric keys to enter the direct switch. For example, if you
want to switch a PC to the Slave KVM port 04 under the Master KVM port 03, then you can start
the OSD and then directly enter 0304. If you are using a standalone machine, then just enter the
first two digits.
More OSD related information are given in the following OSD sections.
