Leave it to Rose to come up with such a feature packed product. The Xtensys universal console switch features the latest in technology and can be deployed and scaled to any computer environment from the simplest to the most complex.
You can connect either a miniature Rose KVM transmitter or a serial cable to the RJ45 computer input connectors on the unit and it will auto-detect the interface. If video is present it will automatically measure the distance and equalize the video for maximum clarity.
At the user side connect a KVM user station to access any computer. The built in Onscreen Display and hot-key system allows you to select a computer using simple keyboard commands or from a sortable list and switch to it instantly.
The XTR-11 user station connects a single KVM station to a single KVM port on an Xtensys switch. For the ultimate in connection flexibility, the XTR-14 user station permits a single KVM station to connect to a KVM port on four different Xtensys switches, four standalone servers/computers, or a combination of Xtensys switches and standalone servers/computers.
All cabling to the user stations and computers usesstandard CATx cable. A Daisy chaining cable is used toconnect up to 8 units together.
Xtensys is easy to install and configure. For asingle unit installation, you simply connect your computers tothe CPU ports; connect the KVM consoles to the userstations, connect the user stations to the Xtensys switch andit's ready for operation. If access to additional computers isneeded, up to 8 units can be daisy chained together. Thisprovides access to as many as 256 computers and 64 users.In addition to being able to daisy chain the units together,each unit's CPU port can be cascaded to a KVM switchproviding access to thousands of computers or servers.
There are three levels of security available tocustomize access to the unit and to the connected computers. Up to 6 security profiles can be added to eachunit. One system administrator, one administrator, and 4 user accounts can be set-up for each unit. The system administrator has security privileges for the complete system.He assigns passwords and access rights for administratorsand all users for the complete system. The administrator canperform security functions for a single unit. Users can beassigned a password and must login to obtain access to the computers.
From each user console, you can access anyconnected computer by simple keyboard commands or usean on-screen list of the computers to access. When connected, the user can fully utilize all applications and features of the connected computer.

The on-screen display is a menu-drivendisplay for configuring the unit, setting up security access, and for quick and easy access to the connected computers.You can use either the keyboard to highlight a feature on the OSD and press enter or use the mouse and click on that feature.
