Category 5 cabling makes for a much neater, more
convenient, more reliable data transfer connection. Setup is
as easy as can be - simply connect the PC system box and
local console to the Local CE-220 Module; run the STP
cable to the Remote CE-220 Module (up to 150 m away);
and plug the remote console into the Remote Module.
Note: You can control numerous remote systems from a
single console by combining the CE-220 with KVM
Switch.

USER'S MANUAL
Read this guide thoroughly and follow the installation and operation
procedures carefully in order to prevent any damage to the units
and/or any devices that connect to them.
This package contains:
• 1 CE-220L Console Extender Local Unit
• 1 CE-220R Console Extender Remote Unit
• 1 Custom KVM Cable
• 2 Power Adapters
• 1 User Manual
Overview
Because the CE-220 Console Extender System allows
access to a computer system from a remote console
(keyboard, monitor, and mouse), it is perfect for factory and
construction sites, or any type of installation where the
console needs to be kept in a conveniently accessible
location, but you want the system equipment to reside in a
safe place - away from dust, dirt, and harsh environmental
influences.
The CE-220 Extender System is also useful for control and
security purposes, where you can have the system unit in a
secure area at the same time that you put the console in a
location that offers convenient access.
The CE-220 Console Extender provides the ideal means to
access the remote system box, since it improves on
previous designs by using inexpensive Category 5 STP
cable - the kind commonly used in Ethernet networks instead of bulkier, more expensive, standard cables.
• Uses Inexpensive, Reliable, Category 5 STP Ethernet
Cable to Connect the Local and Remote Units
• Dual Console Operation - Control Your System From Both
the Local and Remote PS/2 Keyboard, Mouse, and
Monitor Consoles
• Push Button Selection of the Active Console
• High Resolution Video - Up To 1024 x 768 @ 150 m (max.)
• Supports VGA, SVGA, and Multisync Monitors
• Local Monitor Supports DDC2
System Requirements
• Consoles
A VGA, SVGA, or Multisync monitor capable of the
highest resolution that you will be using on any PC in the
installation
A PS/2 Style Keyboard
A PS/2 Style Mouse
Note: You must use the same brand and model of mouse
on both the local and remote units.
• PC
The following equipment must be installed on each PC
that is to be connected to the system:
A VGA, SVGA or Multisync card.
A 6-pin mini-DIN (PS/2 style) mouse port.
A 6-pin mini-DIN (PS/2 style) keyboard port.
• Cables
Although it is possible to use standard extender cables to
connect the computer to the CE-220L, for optimum signal
integrity and tosimplify the layout, we strongly
recommend that you use the high quality CS Custom
Cable that is provided with this package.
Category 5 STP cable is required to connect the local and
remote CE-220 units.
Note: Using other types of cable (e.g. UTP cable) will
result in degrading the video signal.
