The CS-74E KVM switch provides access to four computers from a single console (keyboard, mouse, and monitor).
The CS-74E's custom designed cables significantly reduce the mass of wires associated with KVM installations. There are only three cables to connect between the KVM, console, and computers. The secret lies in the console cable, your input devices and monitor are not connected directly to the KVM, there by reducing cable weight to the rear of the unit. This reduced weight allows the unit to be placed either vertically or horizontally on your desk.
Set up is simply a matter of connecting the included cables between your computers and the KVM, adding your mouse, monitor, and keyboard to the console cable, and then turning on your computers. The power on detect even automatically switches to the first computer powered on.
Switching computers is easily accomplished by either pressing the desired manual switch on the KVM, or by a few easy to remember keystrokes on your keyboard, and since the KVM intercepts key strokes directly form the keyboard - there is no software to install on either computer. The units use PS/2 bus power, so there are no adapters to lose or outlets to locate.
The KVM's fashionably simple styling, clean installation, and simple switching will make this a welcome tool for eliminating wasted space, additional expense of "extra" monitors, keyboard and mice, and increasing productivity by eliminating keyboard, mouse juggling to use "the other computer".Product Highlights
