- Access Kit for Point-to-Point Extension
The extenders come in kits that include local and remote units, which are connected with a single CAT5 or higher cable. All keyboard, mouse, and video signals (as well as serial and audio signals on models that support them) are fully buffered to ensure consistent remote operation of your PC.
No matter what CAT5 or higher cable you use, you can expect clear, high resolution at the remote end with these KVM extenders. That’s because the CATx kits’ remote units and individual standalone remote units feature a built-in skew compensator. Color drift —caused by the different twist ratios of the twisted pair cable —is eliminated. The skew compensator removes the unsightly color shadows by delaying some color signals so that all color signals arrive at the same time at the remote end. This skew compensation works with all colors transmitted.
The ServSwitch Single-Access CAT5x KVM Extender Kit (ACU2001A) is designed to perform basic KVM extension with skew compensation.
