Product Details
CAT 5 KVM Console Extender Kit, which effectively extends PC KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) control to the
Console Receiver.
This kit also provides for convenient dual access; in addition to the remote console access, you can also
connect a monitor/keyboard/mouse set to provide local PC access.
This kit consists of one CAT5 KVM Console Receiver (good to 150 meters), plus one CAT5 KVM Transmitter.
The Console Receiver paired with the Transmitter support DDC2B display communications.

UTP Cable: Pins and pairing
(32~122 )
(-4~158 )
Make sure the UTP cable pin assignments are correct: straight through pin-to-pin, with pairing as follows:
Prepared by Sudhir on 11/12/2007 @ 3:52:31 PM
UTP Cable: Twist density. UTP cable pairs have different twist densities (twist pitches), which can be seen by
stripping off about 10 cm (4 in.) of insulation. Wire colors vary by manufacturer, do not depend on colors to
guess twist densities; strip a section and inspect.
The ABCD picture shows typical UTP cable, with pairs A and C having high pitch twist, and B and D having low.
Most cables have two high density pairs; some
have three. Assign high density twists by priority to pin pairs 1-2, 7-8, and 4-5; assign
low density twists to pin pairs, by priority, 3-6 and 4-5. Failure to assign correct twist densities may result in image jitter.
KVM Transmitter
Prepared by Sudhir on 11/12/2007 @ 3:52:31 PM
Console Receiver :
Connect the Transmitter unit to the remote server. Connect the yellow end of the KVM/VGA cable to the
KVM/VGA IN connector on the Transmitter and secure with thumb screws. Connect the blue end to the
controlled computer’s VGA port and secure with thumb screws. Depending on cable type, plug the
attached color-coded PS2 connectors into the PS2 keyboard and mouse ports on the PC. (Optional) If
local control of the PC is desired, connect a local monitor to the Transmitter’s VGA OUT port, for PS2
keyboard and mouse, connect them to the KB and mouse connectors, respectively, on the Transmitter.
Plug one of the power adapters into a power outlet, and connect it to the Transmitter Power port.
Position the BE-6302-150 Receiver at the remote console site and connect the PS2 console keyboard
and mouse to the appropriate BE-6302-150 PS2 connectors. Connect the console monitor to the BE6302-150 VGA out connector. Plug the remaining power adapter into a nearby power outlet, but do not
yet connect it to the Receiver Power port.
Connect a length of CAT5 (or CAT5e or CAT6) UTP cable, not exceeding the maximum permitted length,
between BE-6302-150 System IN port and the (nearest) Transmitter unit.
Note: The order in which KVM equipment is turned on is important. (See the section on DDC2B.) Start
with the KVM equipment un-powered. For the first-run setup and Image Tuning, do not turn on any local
access monitor (connected to the Transmitter). Do power on any and all KVM Transmitters (BE-6301111) present.
Then power on the Remote Console monitor. After that, supply power to the Console Receiver unit (BE6302-150). As it boots up, the Console Receiver sends DDC2B info to the Transmitter.
Proceed to Image Tuning

Image Tuning
During original installation, or any time the length of the CAT5/5e/6 UTP cable is changed, do the following:
Adjust EQ and Gain.
While displaying a remote screen on the monitor, insert the small Phillips screwdriver (supplied) into the left
hole (closer to USB connector) of BE-6302-150. While looking at the VGA monitor, rotate gently till the best EQ
setting (think image focus) is achieved. Then insert the screwdriver into the right hole (closer to Power LED),
and rotate gently till the best Gain setting (think brightness) is achieved. The Receiver retains the adjustments.
DDC2B: Automatic Display Setting
The BE-6301 family of Transmitters and the BE-6302 Console Receiver support the DDC2B/EDID protocol; this
enables DDC2B-capable monitors and graphics cards to automatically set compatible resolutions and refresh
rates. This is especially helpful for LCD monitors. To take advantage of the DDC2B capability, the main point is
to turn the KVM equipment on in the correct order.
When the BE-6301-111 Transmitter powers on, it checks for a local monitor. If a local monitor is connected and
ON, the Transmitter stores the local monitor DDC2B information, and emulates the local monitor.
If there is no local monitor, or if the local monitor is off, the BE-6301-xxx Transmitter will normally store its
default information, which is that of the Remote
Console monitor; in this case the Transmitter emulates the Remote monitor.
When the BE-6302-150 with attached monitor ON, powers on, it sends that monitor information to the
Transmitter, overwriting any previous DDC2B information. In this case the Transmitter emulates the Remote
Trouble Shooting
Problem: No video
1) Make sure all cables and connectors are securely plugged into their appropriate ports.
2) Make sure that the Console monitor supports the server (controlled PC) transmitted resolution and refresh
3) Make sure the CAT5 cable pin assignments are correct.
4) If some or all remote PCs are not detected, make sure that they have all booted up, and that their
Transmitters are properly connected and powered on. Double press your designated hotkey so that the
Console Receiver will re-poll the network.

Problem: Weird Video
Watch out for resolution and refresh rates set by DDC2B. If you have unmatched monitors connected to a local
console and a remote console, it is possible that the server VGA adapter is feeding a signal that does not agree
with the monitor you are viewing. Please see the section on DDC2B Automatic Display Settings.
Problem: Image jitter
With particular attention to twist density (q.v., above), check twisted pairs assignments.
