Draco CPU Switch

Remotely located switching between 8 VGA sources

The Draco CPU Switch allows you to switch between eight VGA computers together with the respective audio and USB signals. It also comprises the extension of the selected and digitized signal to a remotely located workstation.

8:1 Port VGA KVM Switch

The Draco CPU Switch replaces eight traditional CPU units and includes an 8:1 switch: Eight source computers are connected by VGA cables to the CPU Unit, which is further connected to a user workstation by one interconnect cable. The operator can access any of the eight connected sources from the console. The extender operates as an 8-input, 1-output KVM switch and includes front-panel LEDs to indicate the active computer. Analog VGA video signals are converted to DVI within the extender and scaled using Draco vario image scaling, which is ideal for modern, high-resolution, monitors.

The Draco CPU Switch includes bidirectional analog audio ports and USB-HID for eight computers. A further USB 2.0 port (480 Mbit/s) on the extender allows storage devices to be connected locally. An attached USB device is connected to the active computer making it possible to simply transfer data (e.g. important system updates) from a single USB device to all computers under control of the workstation. Optionally, storage devices can also be connected at the console via USB 2.0 embedded (36 Mbit/s) interface.
