2 Installation
st
DVI, PS2-Keyboard, PS2-Mouse: Connect the supplied KVM CPU cable set to your CPU
(KVM.- Switch, etc.). Please ensure that the connection is tension-free! Devices K461-1W +
K461-2W
DVI, USB-Keyboard, USB-Mouse: Connect the supplied DVI-D cable (DVI-D to DVI-D)
and the USB-cable (USB-A to USB-B) to your CPU. Please ensure that the connection is
tension-free! Devices K461-1U + K461-2U
DVI: Connect the supplied DVI CPU cable set to your CPU (KVM.- Switch, etc.). Please
ensure that the connection is tension-free! Devices K461-2W + K461-2U
CATx Cable: Recommended cable: S/UTP (Cat5) according EIA/TIA 56A, TSB 36 or Digital
STP 17-03170. Four pairs AWG 24. connection according EIA/TIA 568A (10BaseT). Use of
cables from a higher category (Cat5e, Cat6, Cat7) is possible.
•
The use of unshielded CATx Cable is possible, because of the higher electromagnetic
noise/sensitivity the device class may not be reached.
The use of flexible Cables (Patch cable) Type AWG26/8 is possible. Because of the higher loss
of the stranded cables, the maximum distance is reduced to app. half the value of solid cables.
•
A point to point connection is required. Having one or more patch panels in the line
is possible and allowed. Not allowed is a connection from the CATx link interface
(RJ45) to any other products, especially telecommunications or network equipment.
Power Supply
Connect the supplied 5V/DC power supplies to the Plug terminal on the rear of both Local and
Remote units.

No setting up or user adjustments are required. Please note that on the dual access model, the serial
link is always active Please bear in mind that the Remote Unit’s serial port is wired as DTE (i.e. the
same as that on a PC). To connect a serial printer (or other DTE rather than DCE device) to the
Remote Unit, you will need a Null-Modem (crossover) cable between the Remote Unit and the
printer. A serial Touchscreen may be plugged directly into the Remote Unit.

If there is a problem with the devices, it’s frequently the problem, that the graphic card
does not provide a picture at all or only one in an undesired resolution. This mainly
occurs from the fact, that the graphic card wrongly processes the DDC information
provided in our internal table. You may solve this by sending the DDC information of the
locally attached monitor to the graphic card (if available) or to download the DDC
information from the remotely attached monitor into the internal DDC table of the Local
Unit. The way how to do this is described below.
Other troubles are described in the manual.

Diagnostic LEDs
Each DVXi/ET KVM-Extender is fitted with four indicator LEDs: Power, Video OK, Data Error,
Link Status: The Power LEDs are next to the Power socket.
You can select, whether the DDC is taken from internal DDC table or from local monitor or the
DDC information could be downloaded from remote monitor and stored into internal table.
