Where to Place the Switch

The compact size of the Switch makes it perfect for desktop placement.

Consider the following when deciding where to place the Switch: whether

or not you intend to use the direct-access port selectors; the length of

the cables attached to your keyboard, mouse, and monitor; the location

of your CPUs from your Console; and the length of the cables you will use

to connect your computers to the Switch.

Cable Distance Requirements

USB signals are the strongest when transmitted up to 15 feet between

the Switch and the CPU. Beyond 15 feet, probability of signal degradation

increases, which can cause the device to fail.

Cautions and Warnings

Avoid having cables near fluorescent lights, air conditioning equipment, or

machines that create electrical noise (e.g., vacuum cleaners).

STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE

Connecting the Video, Keyboard, and Mouse to the CONSOLE Ports

and the Computers

1. Power down your computers.

2. Remove the rear panel of the Switch to expose the ports.

3. Connect your USB keyboard and USB mouse to the CONSOLE ports on

your Switch.

4. Take the video cables that are attached to your VGA monitors and

connect them to the CONSOLE video ports on your Switch.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE

11

Powering Up the Switch

1. Connect the included 9V DC, 1A power supply adapter into an

available power outlet.

2. Attach the barrel into the power jack on the Switch to power

the unit. The LEDs should illuminate.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE

12

Connecting the Computers to the KVM Switch

1. Boot up the computer you wish to connect via USB as you would

normally with the USB keyboard, monitor, and USB mouse connected

directly to the computer. Once the operating system has loaded,

attach the male and female VGA KVM cable connectors to the Switch.

Then attach the USB KVM cable connector to the back of the

computer. The operating system will automatically install the Switch.

Do this for all USB connections.

2. Shut down your computer. Take the two male VGA cable ends and

connect them to the appropriate female VGA ports on the back of the

computer. Connect the speaker audio connector to the computer’s

audio-output port. Do the same for the microphone connection. Do this

for all computers.

CONNECTING MICROPHONE AND SPEAKERS–OPTIONAL

13

1. Connect the speakers and microphone to the CONSOLE section of your

KVM Switch.

2. Connect one audio cable from the computer’s audio-output port to the

audio port in the CONSOLE section of the Switch. Do the same for the

microphone connection.

3. Power on your connected computers.

You are now ready to use your Switch.

USING YOUR SWITCH

14

You can select which computer to operate by either the direct-access port

selector located on the front panel of the Switch or through keyboard hot

key commands. Note that it will take 1–2 seconds for the video to display

after switching. This is due to the refresh rate of the video signal. There

is also re-synchronization of the mouse and keyboard signal that takes

place. This is normal operation and ensures that proper synchronization is

established.

Selecting a Computer Using Direct-Access Port Selectors

You can directly select which computer you wish to control by pressing

the corresponding direct-access port selector next to the appropriate

port. The LED will be lit to indicate that the port is currently selected.

Selecting a Computer Using Keyboard Hot Key Commands

Note: You must connect the USB keyboard to the designated USB

connector to have keyboard hot key switching function on

the keyboard.

You can command the Switch to switch ports with a simple keyboard

command sequence by using the [SCROLL LOCK] key and [UP], [DOWN]

arrow keys. To send commands to the Switch, the [SCROLL LOCK] key must

be pressed twice within two seconds. You will hear a beep for

confirmation. Then you can press the [UP], [DOWN] arrow keys to switch

between ports.

You can switch directly to any port by entering the port number of the port

you wish to use. For example, if you press [SCROLL LOCK], [SCROLL LOCK],

[2], the computer on port 2 will be selected.

Switch to port 2—#2 key Switch to port 4—#4 key

Switch to next active port,

[UP] arrow

Switch to previous active port,

[DOWN] arrow

USING YOUR SWITCH

15

AutoScan Mode

In AutoScan mode the Switch remains on one port for 10 seconds before

switching to the next. This time interval cannot be changed.

To enable AutoScan mode press [SCROLL LOCK], [SCROLL LOCK],

[0], [0]

Note: There is no mouse or keyboard control in this mode. This is necessary

to prevent errors. Otherwise, if the user is moving the mouse or using the

keyboard when the KVM switches to the next port, communication between

the computer and Switch could be interrupted and cause erratic mouse

movement, or wrong characters to display when using the keyboard.

To disable AutoScan mode, press the space bar.

Connecting USB Devices to the Built-In 2-Port Hub

The Switch includes a built-in 2-port USB device hub that allows you to

connect two additional shared peripherals. When you connect any USB

device to the Switch, that device can be accessed through whichever

computer you are currently using.

Note: This is not suitable for storage devices such as LS-120 drives and Zip®

drives because you cannot dynamically switch ports and disconnect a

mounted storage device when it is in use by the operating system. For

example, you are working on computer 1 with a file open that is stored on a

Zip drive connected to the Switch. If you switch to computer 2 while the

file is still open, you will get a “file lost or corrupted” error message on

computer one. The same will occur when you are using a streaming device

such as the Belkin VideoBus USB video capture device. You can switch from

one computer safely to the next, only if the VideoBus is no longer in use by

the first computer. You will notice that after the KVM switches to another

computer, the mouse remains inoperative for one or two seconds. This is

normal, and ensures that proper USB synchronization is established.
