The version V-Trans IxS is used with two single mode fibers (9/125µ) for distances of up to 10 km. For distances of up to 400 m the version V-Trans IxM is used with two multi mode fibers (50/125µ). The CAT-based extender system V-Trans IxC is used for distances of up to 140 meters.

Installation of the DVI KVM Extender

V-Trans I is an extension system with a sender/transmitter and a receiver unit. The sender unit is connected to the computer/server. The receiver is connected to the console (display keyboard mouse) at the remote workstation. To the sender unit a local console (display keyboard mouse) can be connected to operate the computer locally. CAT or fiber can be used as transmission medium between sender and receiver unit. The transmission of the DVI-D video signal and the keyboard and mouse signal are fully digital. 

Digital DVI KVM Extension over CAT & fiber-optic

Fully digital transmission offers the following advantages:

  • The quality of the transmission is independent from the distance of transmission even at highest resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200 pixel at 60 Herz refresh rate
  • Transmission of DDC information of the remote as well as the local display or of a DDC table
  • Supports HID USB (HID = Human Interface Device) to connect touch screens or graphic-tablets

The fiber-optic versions of V-Trans I offer additional advantages:

  • There is a galvanic isolation of sender and receiver unit
  • It is not affected by electromagnetic interferences and can be used in critical environments
  • The transmission is tap-proof

DVI Extender saves space in server racks

Casings /chassis of sender and receiver are made of aluminium. They can be used as desktop devices as well as mounted into standard 19“ server racks. Rack mount kits are available to mount up to 4 units side by side into 1U in the rack.
