3.1
Application
The Draco tera matrix is used to establish connections from consoles
(monitor, keyboard, mouse, and other peripheral devices) to various
sources (computer, CPU).
In its maximum configuration, up to 48 independent ports can be defined
and switched either as a console or a CPU.
The Draco tera matrix is designed to operate with extenders that are able
to transmit video, KVM and USB 2.0 signals. But it can also be used as a
video matrix.
The connection between the matrix and the peripheral devices, such as
KVM extenders or video sources, can be made by Cat X cables.
The matrix serves as a repeater and can be run at a maximum distance of
140 m from the consoles and 140 m from the sources.

Parallel Operation (Stacking)
If you have special configurations, especially at installations with several
monitors per work station or additional support of USB 2.0 transmission
paths, the number of connectable CPUs and consoles can be increased
by a parallel operation (stacking) of several Draco tera devices.
One Draco tera matrix is defined as the Master Matrix and its IP address
entered into the Master IP Address field (see Chapter 5.4.1, Page 78). All
other matrices are defined as Sub Matrices. Sub matrices must be
connected to the master matrix via network connector (RJ45) on the CPU
board. The Enable LAN Echo option has to be activated at the master
matrix (see Chapter 5.4.1, Page 78).
If a switching command is performed using the OSD, the synchronized
matrices will also switch automatically.
Switching of stacked devices might be delayed by several seconds.

Matrix Grid
You can use a matrix grid for applications where the required number of
ports is not sufficient or important connections need to be made to several
matrices to provide redundancy.
A matrix grid consists of one master matrix and at least one slave matrix.
In its maximum configuration, it can consist of up to 16 matrices.
In order to build a matrix grid, the grid matrices are interconnected by
“Grid Lines”. In this case, the slave matrices can be connected directly to
the master matrix or between themselves.
When arranging the grid lines, various grid setups can be realized, for
example: a ring setup, a hub & spoke setup or a fully connected setup of
matrices.
Grid lines can process signals bidirectional (Smart Connect). Per grid
line, one KVM connection can be transmitted.
Switching operations that extend beyond a single grid matrix are made by
the grid master. Local switching operations will still be made by each sub
matrix.
To configure the matrix grid, see Chapter 5.13, Page 158.

Parallel Operation
This menu enables parallel operation of a CPU Device by two or more
CON Devices. A CPU Device can be controlled by only one CON Device
at a time but can be taken over successively by other CON Devices.
Control of a CPU Unit by a CON Unit is relinquished after the expiry of an
inactivity timer associated with the controlling CON Device. The mouse or
keyboard may also be used to take control.
In order to allow a smooth and accurate function of the parallel operation,
you should use identical mice and keyboards. They should be connected
to the same USB-HID ports of each CON Unit.
When taking over control within 10 s, any assigned USB 2.0 / 3.0
extenders, if available, will not be switched due to security and stability
aspects.
The alternative is using the USB-HID Ghosting (see Chapter 6.10,

Multi-Screen Control
This menu configures the USB-HID switching operation, allowing a CON
Device with several monitors to control several connected sources
(computers, CPUs). Smooth switching can be performed for up to four
connected sources by dragging the mouse pointer beyond the respective
monitor to an adjacent one.
Monitors can be arranged side-by-side or in a grid layout.
When using sources (computers, CPUs) in multi-head operation (e.g.
dual-head), switching only works manually via keyboard commands. Noncompliance may have a negative influence on the stability of the system.
When using CON Units with the possibility to connect a local source
(computer, CPU) in a Multi-Screen Control environment, the local
switching will be disabled.
In order to enable Multi-Screen Control, all Extender Units assigned to the
related CON Device, must be physically connected to the same block of
4 ports on the I/O board of the matrix.
CON Units that have been already configured for Multi-Screen Control can
be connected together to other blocks of 4 ports. In this case any further
configuration is not necessary, their functionality will remain as set
previously.

Matrix Cascading
This simple method of cascading allows a switchable connection between
two matrices via so called Tie Lines.
The Matrix Cascading does not require Bundle 4.
This kind of configuration may become necessary, if the number of ports
in the entire system has to be increased or if certain important connections
should be distributed to several matrices due to reasons of redundancy.
The Tie Lines are unidirectional and can only be used in one direction
according to their configuration. For a bidirectional use of the cascading
you have to configure opposite Tie Lines.
In order to connect Tie Lines to the matrices, you have to create intended
Master/Slave CON und Master/Slave CPU Devices that have to be
switched within the cascaded environment.
You have the following options to configure Matrix Cascading:

In this menu you can configure a Matrix Grid in order to connect two or
more matrices. This kind of configuration may become necessary if the
number of ports in the entire system has to be increased or if certain
important connections should be distributed to several matrices due to
reasons of redundancy.
The connections between two matrices have to be established by so
called Grid Lines that are connected between particular I/O ports as
connecting links. The Grid Lines can be used bidirectionally and can
respectively handle a full access connection of a CON Device to a CPU
Device.
158
2014-04-15
Configuration
The number of Grid Lines in the system specifies, if a CON Device can be
switched to a CPU Device in Non-Blocking Access or in Blocking Access
and has to be separately determined for each Grid environment.
In this case Non-Blocking Access means that a Grid Line for a crossmatrix switching operation of a CON Device to a CPU Device is available
at any time.
Whereas Blocking Access means that for a certain switching operation no
Grid Line may be available according to the switching status within the
Grid. The result will be that no cross-matrix switching will be possible.
You have the following options to configure a Matrix Grid:
Administration of Settings
Within a Matrix Grid you have to differ between settings that have to be
made locally for each matrix and settings that can be made globally so
that they are valid for the whole Matrix Grid.
The settings in the following menus have to be made separately for each
matrix or within the master matrix in order to affect all matrices in the Grid:
System, Access, Switch, Network, Date + Time, SNMP, Matrix Grid,
Multi-Screen Control
The settings in the following menus have to be made globally and only
once within the Matrix Grid:
EXT Units, CPU Devices, CON Devices, User, CON Macros, User
Macros, CON Favorites, User Favorites, Virtual CPU Devices, Virtual

6.1.1
Direct Switching
The direct switching by favorites on a keyboard is the fastest possibility for
a user to switch at his console between different CPUs. This offers the
option to switch video, keyboard and mouse or video only.
Direct Switching of Video, Keyboard and Mouse
1.
Start Command Mode with the 'Hot Key'.
Shift and Scroll LEDs on the keyboard will flash, if Command Mode
is activated.
2.
Enter the index number of the new CPU from the list of favorites and
confirm with <Enter>.
At the same time the Command Mode is closed and the console is
connected to the new CPU which takes over complete control.
Example: Switching to favorite CPU 7 with video, keyboard and
mouse
<left Shift>, <left Shift>, <7>, <Enter>
Fastest switching time can be achieved by using identical mice, keyboards
and monitors. This contributes to a smooth and seamless direct switching
of the matrix.
Switching in Private Mode
1.
Start Command Mode with the 'Hot Key'.
Shift and Scroll LEDs on the keyboard will flash, if command mode is
activated.
2.
Enter the index number of the new CPU from the list of favorites and
confirm with <left Shift>, <Enter> pressed at the same time.
At the same time the Command Mode is closed and the console is
connected to the new CPU with complete control in Private Mode.
Example: Switching to favorite CPU 3 in Private Mode
<left Shift>, <left Shift>, <3>, <left Shift>, <Enter>

USB 2.0 Switching
Switching of USB 2.0 extender basically works like switching of KVM
extenders. The following scenarios to switch USB 2.0 extenders are
possible.
1.
An extender unit with USB 2.0 will be created and assigned to an
already existing device with existing KVM extender units (see Chapter
5.8, Page 116 or Chapter 5.9.1, Page 121).
2.
A separate device for the extender unit with USB 2.0 will be created
without assigning a KVM extender unit to that device. This possibility
offers a separate switching of the USB 2.0 signal (see Chapter 5.8,
Page 116 or Chapter 5.9.1, Page 121).
Switching of USB 2.0 signals uses Extended Switching functionality (see
Chapter 6.3, Page 179).
When using parallel operation within the matrix, set the Release Time in
the Configuration > Switch menu to 10 s or more (see Chapter 5.9.6,
Page 138). Otherwise the connection of the USB 2.0 extender will not be
established due to security and stability reasons.

7.1.1
RJ45 (Network)
The communication of the Cat X devices requires a 1000BASE-T
connection.
The cabling has to be done according to EIA/TIA-568-B (1000BASE-T)
with RJ45 connectors at both ends. All four wire pairs are used in both
directions. The cabling is suitable for a full duplex operation. For the cable
connection to a source (computer, CPU), a crossed network cable (cross
cable) has to be used.

7.1.2
RJ45 (Serial)
Communication takes place with a transmission speed of 115.2 KBaud,
regardless of the file format. The transmission takes place with eight data
bits and a stop bit, but without a parity bit. Limited hardware handshake
(DSR) is possible.

7.2.1
Cat X
A point-to-point connection is required. Operation with several patch fields
is possible. Routing over an active network component, such as an
Ethernet Hub, Router or Matrix, is not allowed.
 Avoid routing Cat X cables along power cables.
 If the site has 3-phase AC power, try to ensure that CPU Unit and
CON Unit are on the same phase.
To maintain regulatory EMC compliance, correctly installed shielded Cat X
cable must be used throughout the interconnection link.
To maintain regulatory EMC compliance, all Cat X cables need to carry
ferrites on both cable ends close to the device.
Type of Interconnect Cable
The Draco tera requires interconnect cabling specified for Gigabit Ethernet
(1000BASE-T). The use of solid-core (AWG24), shielded, Cat 5e (or
better) is recommended.
Cat X Solid-Core Cable
AWG24
S/UTP (Cat 5e) cable according to EIA/TIA568-B. Four pairs of wires AWG24.
Connection according to EIA/TIA-568-B
(1000BASE-T).
Cat X Patch Cable
AWG26/8
S/UTP (Cat 5e) cable according to EIA/TIA568-B. Four pairs of wires AWG26/8.
Connection according to EIA/TIA-568-B
(1000BASE-T).
The use of flexible cables (patch cables) type AWG26/8 is possible,
however the maximum possible extension distance is halved.

MTBF
The following table contains the mean time between failure (MTBF) in
power-on hours (POH). The estimate is based on the FIT rates of the
parts included. FIT rates are based on normalized environmental
conditions of T = 60°C and activation energy (Ea) of 0.7 eV. Calculations
are based on 90% confidence limit.
We estimate that inside the housing, temperature will be 15°C higher than
the ambient temperature. Therefore, the MTBF calculation refers to an
ambient temperature of 45°C. The humidity is limited to 60%.
