Leave it to Rose to come up with such a feature packed
product. The Xtensys CAT5 KVM switch features the
latest in technology and can be deployed and scaled to
any computer environment from the simplest to the
most complex.
You can connect either a miniature Rose KVM
transmitter or a serial cable to the RJ45 computer input
connectors on the unit. It auto-detects the interface. If
video is present it will automatically measure the
distance and equalize the video for maximum clarity.
At the user side you connect a KVM user station to
access any computer. The built in OSD and hot-key
system allows you to select a computer using simple
keyboard commands or from a sortable list and switch
to it instantly.
The XTR-11 user station connects a single KVM station
to a single KVM port on an Xtensys switch. For the
ultimate in connection flexibility, the XTR-14 user station
permits a single KVM station to connect to a KVM port
on four different Xtensys switches, four standalone
servers/computers, or a combination of Xtensys
switches and standalone computers/servers.
As the inventors of the KVM switch, Rose continues to
provide leading solutions for your server management
needs. With headquarters in the US and offices in
Europe and Asia, Rose provides a full range of

Firmware update… The firmware upgrade utility is a windows
based program that provides an automated process for upgrading
the unit’s firmware. New firmware upgrades are available from
our web site.
Typical Application
Part Numbers
Xtensys Switch
a = Remote Users (0, 2, 4, 8, 16)
(0 = 0 remote users, 1 local user)
b = CPUs (4, 8, 16, 32, 48, 64)
c = Controller Cards ( 4, 8, 12, 16 )
-L = Local PS2 KVM ports (Standard)
-LU = Local PS2+USB KVM ports (Optional)
User KVM Stations
Cables… All cabling to the user stations and computers uses
standard CATx cable. A Daisy chaining cable is used to
connect up to 8 units together.
Installation… Xtensys is easy to install and configure. For a
single unit installation, you simply connect your computers to
the CPU ports; connect the KVM consoles to the user
stations, connect the user stations to the Xtensys switch and
it’s ready for operation. If access to additional computers is
needed, up to 8 units can be daisy chained together. This
provides access to as many as 256 computers and 64 users.
In addition to being able to daisy chain the units together,
each unit’s CPU port can be cascaded to a KVM switch
providing access to thousands of computers or servers.
Security… There are three levels of security available to
customize access to the unit and to the connected
computers. Up to 6 security profiles can be added to each
unit. One system administrator, one administrator, and 4 user
accounts can be set-up for each unit. The system
administrator has security privileges for the complete system.
He assigns passwords and access rights for administrators
and all users for the complete system. The administrator can
perform security functions for a single unit. Users can be
assigned a password and must login to obtain access to the
Operation… From each user console, you can access any
connected computer by simple keyboard commands or use
an on-screen list of the computers to access. When
connected, the user can fully utilize all applications and
features of the connected computer.
Keyboard and Mouse… Xtensys fully emulates the keyboard
and mouse, so computers can be booted at any time. A
“Keep Alive” feature ensures that the keyboard and mouse
will function properly even if the switch temporarily loses
