The CE680 is a DVI Fibre Optic KVM Extender that overcomes length restrictions of standard DVI cables by using fiber optics to send high definition audio, video and control signals over longer distances. The CE680 can transmit KVM DVI signals very long distances – up to 600 m away from the source. The extender takes audio/video streams from the local source and serializes the data to pass it over a single 3.125 Gbps optical link, for resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz, 24-bits, with picture perfect quality.
In addition to extending keyboard and mouse control, the CE680 also transfers RS-232 signals (up to 115 kbps) and USB signals in both directions, with ports for both, allowing you to connect serial devices, such as barcode scanners; or USB devices such as touchscreens, which can provide access to a computer connected at the local site – up to 600 m away.
The CE680 allows access to a computer from both the local and remote consoles (USB keyboard, monitor, and mouse). Furthermore, the CE680 takes advantage of the newest fiber optic cable technology to connect the local and remote units; providing easy installation and a very long 600 m extension of KVM DVI signals.
