Introduction
Overview
Thank you for your recent purchase of APC’s USB to PS/2 Keyboard and
Mouse Adapter (Figure 1). Please take this time to complete the online
Warranty Registration Form available at www.apc.com.
Universal Serial Bus (USB) port technology has emerged in response to the
proliferation of external peripherals (keyboard, mouse, scanner, digital
camera, removable drives, etc.), that are increasingly being connected to the
latest generation of PCs. USB technology is much faster than conventional
bus ports (i.e., serial, parallel, PS/2), and since it does not require Interrupt
Requests (IRQs), the problem of IRQ conflict is eliminated, allowing many
more devices to be attached to the system.

USB to PS/2
Keyboard & Mouse
Adapter
The Adapter is a USB to PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse interface converter. It
allows a PS/2 type keyboard and/or mouse to connect to USB enabled PCs,
notebooks, laptops, or handheld computing devices via the USB bus, instead
of using conventional bus technology.
User’s Manual
An advantage of this for notebooks, for example, is that now an external
mouse and keyboard can be connected at the same time without causing
conflict.
Figure 1. USB to PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse Adapter
Read this guide thoroughly and follow the installation and operation
procedures carefully in order to prevent any damage to the unit and/or any
device connected to it.
Note: Since most computers only have one or two USB ports, USB hubs are
often used to provide additional ports so that numerous USB peripheral
devices can be connected at the same time.
This package contains:
• 1 USB to PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse Adapter
• 1 User Manual
If anything is damaged or missing, contact your dealer.
The Adapter improves on previous designs by including easy to use hotkeys
for selecting your computer’s operating system and keyboard language
input. For further convenience - especially to users of notebooks, laptops,
and handhelds - the Adapter derives its operating power from the Universal
Serial Bus, so that a bulky external power supply need not be taken along.
And because it is a USB Specification compliant device, the Adapter
supports energy-saving suspend and resume operations.
Connectors & Indicators
Installation
Operating System Considerations
The connectors and indicators provided on
the adapter, are as follows (see Figure 2):
Make sure power to all the devices to be connected have been turned OFF.
Also, unplug the power cord of any computer having a Keyboard Power ON
function. Otherwise, the Adapter will receive power from the computer.
Windows 98SE:
1. Mouse and Keyboard Ports - the
cables from the PS/2 Mouse and PS/2
Keyboard plug in here. The ports are
marked with an icon to indicate which port
goes to which device.
Caution: To prevent equipment damage, make sure all devices to be
connected are properly grounded.
1. The first time you start up, Windows detects the Adapter as being
connected. Follow the Installation Wizard to install the appropriate
driver for the Adapter.
Connections
2. There is no need to restart Windows once the driver has been installed.
2. Mouse and Keyboard LEDs - the LED
lights when its corresponding peripheral
(mouse or keyboard) is connected to the
Adapter. It flashes when its corresponding
peripheral is transmitting data packets.
3. USB A Type Connector - this connector
plugs into the computer’s USB port, or into
a USB Hub connected to the computer.
2.
Connect a PS/2 Keyboard and/or Mouse to the Adapter as follows:
Windows 2000:
1. Plug the PS/2 Mouse and PS/2 Keyboard into the appropriate
connectors on the adapter. The ports are marked with an icon to
indicate the correct port.
1. The first time you start up, Windows detects the Adapter as being
connected and automatically installs the appropriate driver for the
Adapter.
2. Plug the Adapter’s USB plug into the computer USB port, or into a
USB Hub connected back to the computer.
3. Power ON the computer.
2. Once the driver has been installed, you must restart Windows in order
for the driver to become active.
Windows ME / XP:
1. The first time you start up, Windows detects the Adapter as being
connected and automatically installs the appropriate driver for the
Adapter.

Mac Keyboard Emulation Mappings
Hotkey Settings
Hotkeys are used to select the keyboard layout, reset the USB, select the
operating platform that the Adapter runs under, and obtain system setting
information.
Note: 1. Use the Hotkeys to specify your operating system (OS) and
keyboard language layout the first time the computer is used
with the Adapter, Table 1.
2. After changing the keyboard language layout, restart the
computer in order for the change to take effect.
