FAQs KVM switches

All KVM switches

Printouts of any documentation (manuals, installation guides) are provided in the package contents of the devices.

Manuals also available as download.

To operate both VGA and DVI computers, please use one of the following digital KVM switches:

  • DVIMUX (for single-link DVI)
  • DVIMUX-DL (for dual-link DVI)
  • DL-MUX (for dual-link DVI + network connection + monitoring ...)

These devices switch both types of signals. Please contact our sales team for more information.

Yes. Our multi-channel switches are best suited for this purpose. They access up to four video channels and keyboard/mouse for each computer. Multi-channel devices are abbreviated with "MC" (e.g. DVIMUX4-MC4-USB for 4 x video per computer)

Switching is carried out over hotkey, button, or external access (if provided for device). An LED at the switch highlights the active channel (computer).

The TradeSwitch switches keyboard, mouse and audio signals between computers and highlights the active channel using LEDs. The LEDs can be attached to the monitors. The TradeSwitch does not transmit video signals.

The miniMUX8 is best suited for switching one computer. When cascaded, the device can switch between up to 64 computers.

From experience, one local administration console (in the server room) isn't enough. Often, a second console is desired. In this case we recommend employing Matrix Switches.

If you don't plan on increasing the number of computers and consoles, the CompactCenter X2 may be the solution you are looking for. In other cases the CATCenter NEO series or the DVICenter (for DVI-based systems) may be the perfect fit.
