Introduction:
KVM-CAT5 Extra is designed to control the PC, Server or KVM Switch
up to 500 feet away from your Keyboard, Mouse and VGA monitor. The
transmitter (KVM-CAT5T) is to synthesize the signals of PS/2 keyboard,
PS/2 mouse, and VGA monitor for being easily transmitted to a long
distance over popular Ethernet CAT5 cable. The receiver (KVM-CAT5R
Extra) is to take the synthetic signal and return it back to the signal s of
PS/2 keyboard, PS/2 mouse and VGA monitor respectively.
KVM-CAT5 Extra is a good solution for those noisy server room
environment where is unsuitable for people to work for a long time,
besides, it facilitates effective management on dispersive computers
through one dedicated central control room, demonstration room, meeting
room, or at your desk. CAT5 STP cable (Shielded Twisted Pair)/ UTP
cable (Unshielded Twisted Pair) or enhanced cable like CAT5E/CAT6
cable is applied to LAN network popularly. KVM-CAT5 Extra uses the
same existing network construction to transfer local console signal to
remote side.
KVM-CAT5 Extra allows you to move your console, i.e. Keyboard,
Mouse and VGA monitor, to a suitable place for centralized control
conveniently over LAN network. You just need to install a pair of extender,
the transmitter and receiver, into local side and remote side respectively. It
also saves your cable layout and installation cost.

Adjust the “KNOB“ on top of the receiver (KVM-CAT5R Extra) for
optimal VGA display quality, which varies according to the cable
characteristic, such as the length, category, shielded, and unshielded.
Turn on “DIP SWITCH 1 and 2” on the side of transmitter (KVM-CAT5T),
if the CAT5 cable is longer than 300 feet. The factory default value of
“DIP SWITCH 1 and 2” is OFF.

Installation:
Before installation, please make sure to turn off all of the computers and
peripherals as well; and refer to the following instructions properly for
installation:
HDDB15 pin Male to Male
1.1. Connect the console ports of PC to the transmitter’s (KVM-CAT5T)
“PC port” with standard 3-in-one KVM switch cable (male to male).
Normally, all of connectors are PC99 standard --- PS/2 purple
mini-din 6 pin for keyboard, PS/2 green mini-din 6 pin for mouse
and blue HDDB 15 pin for VGA.

Extra) “PC port” with standard 3-in-one KVM switch cable (male to
male).
1.3. Connect the transmitter and receiver of KVM-CAT5 Extra through
their RJ-45 connecters with a CAT5 cable.
CAT5/5E/6 Straight Through STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) or UTP
(Unshielded Twisted Pair) Cable:
1.4. Connect Keyboard, Mouse, and Monitor to the transmitter’s “Console
Port.”

Extending console port or PC port of KVM Switch up to 500 feet
away
2.1. Connect console ports of the KVM switch to the transmitter’s
(KVM-CAT5T) “PC Port” with a standard 3-in-one KVM switch
cable (male to male).
2.2. Connect PC console ports to the receiver’s (KVM-CAT5R Extra)
“PC Port” with a standard 3-in-one KVM switch cable (male to
male).
2.3. Connect the transmitter and receiver of KVM-CAT5 Extra through
their RJ-45 connecters with a CAT5 cable.

Check the VGA screen to make sure the quality is optimal. If the
video quality is not good enough for operation, please adjust the knob
on the top of transmitter to improve the video quality.
Keyboard Hot Key Commands:
You can switch the receiver (KVM-CAT5R Extra) from “PC Port” to
“RJ-45 Port” and vice-versa through simple key sequences made by the
remote console side. To send commands to the receiver, press the
“SCROLL LOCK” key twice within 2 seconds. There will be a beep for
confirmation.
Below are the different Hot Key Commands:

Switch directly.
Troubleshooting:
1. Receiver’s power LED is not ON. Make sure power adapter is
connected to the receiver (KVM-CAT5R Extra) .
2. No video signal is displayed on the monitor.
2.1 Please check if VGA cable and CAT5 cable are properly
connected to the connectors respectively.
2.2 Make sure VGA cable is attached to computer during the
boot-up process.
2.3 Make sure power adapter is connected to the receiver.
3. Video signal is foggy or un-cleared on the screen.
3.1 Please check if the VGA cable is properly connected.
3.2 Make sure the VGA resolution is not too high for the length of
cable that is used. It is highly recommended to use “optimal
CAT5 cable length” to get the best video quality and not to waste
unnecessary CAT5 cable. Therefore, if the problem happened,
please shorten the CAT5 cable length or reduce VGA resolution.
NOTE: High VGA resolution up to 1280X1024
(CAT5 cable length up to 500 feet approximately)
4. There is the error message “Keyboard or Mouse not found” on the
screen. Please make sure PS/2 cable and connector are well seated.
5. For USB computers like PC, MAC, or SUN Microsystems, please
apply USB-to-PS/2 adapter to KVM-CAT5 Extra.
