avocent® hmx 5000 series
yy USB 2.0 with Class Control
Enables connection of USB
devices from mice and
keyboards through to graphics
tablets, jog shuttles, joysticks
and 3D explorers, alongside
mass storage devices.
yy Redundant Network
The units are able to detect
whether the network is in
operation and can automatically
change to its second network
port if it detects a failure.
yy Plug and Play
These devices are delivered in a
zero config state so you can
plug them in and start working
on them straight away. There is
no need for drivers or software
to be installed. the additional

-- 100m extension distance on
single CATx; unlimited using
standard IP network
The Avocent® HMX 5000 Series is a high performance KVM
(Keyboard, Video and Mouse) extender that forms part of the
matrix solution. This enables you to locate your critical computing
hardware in a secure and temperature controlled environment
away from the user work station, while maintaining a pixel perfect
desktop experience.
Truly unlimited extension distances
Extension distance is not limited to a single 100 meter cable length - If you need to
extend further, simply add a 1GbE network device to achieve even greater distances. The
units are also fitted with SFP cages to accept fiber optic transceivers which enable much
greater extension distances.
Single CATx cable or fiber that prevents interference
This significant asset is what gives you the freedom to use the full variety of cable links
that you typically find within an average structured cabling system. The result is that you
can achieve reliable links, regardless of whether the cables are CAT5e, CAT6 or CAT7.
Real time control with perfect digital video
Using a spatially-lossless encoding system, with 1:1 pixel mapping. The digital video you
receive is the same as the digital video leaving the remote computer.
For applications where security is of high importance, the system has the ability to
disable the use of non-HID devices, meaning there is no need to physically block USB
ports to prevent the use of mass storage devices.

Technical Specifications
Hardware Compatibility
All computers with DVI-D, USB, Audio, RS232 - requirement dependent.
DVI-D - Digital Visual Interface
(digital only)
The system supports a Single Link DVI-D resolution to a maximum of 1920 x
1200 @ 60Hz (VGA with adapter).
USB 2.0 with Class Control
Supports USB 2.0 devices (low, full and high speed). Security feature allows the
blocking of non HID devices. Isochronous devices are not supported (e.g. USB
audio or video devices).
Digital Stereo Audio
The system transfers analog stereo audio (Line In/Line Out) via digital signaling
between any transmitter/receiver pair. Additionally, the audio output of any
transmitter can be multicast to many receivers.
RS232 can be passed between the units to a maximum baud rate of 115,200.
RS232 is a point to point connection technology and cannot be multicast.
Software Compatibility
All known operating systems.
