- This unit is perfect for moving the console away from the computer or the KVM switch. Your console can be moved across the room or hall, out of the server room, or anywhere that is most convenient. It is also useful for security and monitoring purposes, where you can have the system unit in a secure area at the same time that you put the console in the most convenient location for user access and monitoring
- A PS/2 KVM Console Extender is a cost effective solution because it uses inexpensive UTP (CAT5e) cabling to extend the distance, versus expensive and bulky coaxial cabling. It is easy to install and operate because of the Auto Signal Compensation (ASC) technology, which senses the distance and adjusts the signal levels accordingly so there is no need to do any dip switch setting.
The CE250 KVM Extender allows access to a computer (or KVM) from a remote console (keyboard, monitor, and mouse). It is perfect for any situation where the computer needs to be in a protected area for environmental or security considerations. The console can be located in a convenient location up to 490 feet away from the server or KVM, while your computers remain secured.
The CE250 uses standard CAT-5 cable so you can cut your connection to the exact length needed, which makes placement your choice rather than accommodating someone else's compromise of a correct cable length.
A key feature of the CE250 is built-in 8KV ESD protection and 2KV surge protection. It also features a custom ASIC that ensures the utmost in reliability and compatibility. It senses the distance to the system and automatically adjusts the gain to compensate.

For optimum signal integrity we strongly recommend that you use the high-quality Custom KVM cable provided with this package. The shape and function of the KVM connectors on the switch and the cable have been modified so that only KVM cables designed to work with this KVM switch can be used.
Cat 5 cable is the minimum quality cable required to connect the local and remote CE250A units
