KVM products for signal switching, extension and conversion

IHSE’s KVM products create a more inviting and productive workspace for employees or customers by extending the reach of computer peripherals away from their primary sources, central processing unit (CPUs) and servers.

KVM solutions eliminate the need for multiple keyboards and move CPUs away from workstations to reduce clutter, environmental noise and total power consumption.

IHSE offers products for switching, extending and converting multiple signal formats using either Cat X or fibre-optic cabling.

The company’s extender modules support a range of formats, such as DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA, analogue and digital audio, USB-HID, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, RS-232 and RS-422.

KVM matrix switches

IHSE’s matrix solutions enable switching between various sources and remote consoles. Any connected console featuring peripherals can access any other connected computer within the network.

Matrix switching defines a connection between sources and peripherals. IHSE’s unique Draco tera switches offer fast KVM switching, providing full computer access without delays, and up to 288 I / O ports can be configured.

Sources and peripherals are automatically recognised and mapped, without manual re-configuration.

KVM extenders

With KVM extenders, users can re-locate their computers or CPU servers at longer distances than allowed by standard cables. The extenders can be interconnected via copper cables (Cat X) or fibre-optic cabling at ranges of up to 10km.

IHSE’s extenders connect users to peripherals, such as keyboards, monitors, and USB-HID and USB 2.0 accessories, as if they were located directly at the workstation. Relocating CPU devices in separate rooms makes it easier to protect critical CPUs and servers from dirt, moisture and unauthorised access.

The company’s solutions eliminate heat and noise disturbances produced by CPUs and servers, making them suitable for a range of environments, such as financial and data centres, sound studios, hospitals, air traffic control towers, and seagoing vessels with limited equipment space.

Video converters

IHSE’s media conversion technology enables clients’ older protocols and computer display technology to work effectively with the latest equipment and digital display devices.

The company’s video converters have evolved from a basic stop-gap technology concept to a critical solution for a customer’s maintenance and service requirements.

Converter modules allow a variety of formats, such as CGA, EGA, RGB, S-Video, Component Video, SDI and HD-SDI, to be displayed on newer DVI flat panel displays, extending the lifecycles of industrial and commercial-grade electronic equipment.

KVM extenders enable computer access from remotely located workstations.
