The Minicom by Tripplite 0DT23001 Smart KVM Extender enables controlling a computer or KVM switch up to 110m/360ft away by extending the KVM console. This makes it a good solution for accessing computers centralized in one secure, environmentally controlled location such as those in financial institutions. A major feature of the new system is its advanced CAT5 technology. The thin CAT5 cable is easy to install and eliminates troublesome cable clutter.

More than an extender, the The 0DT23001 Smart KVM Extender is actually a multifunctional system that performs three tasks all in one: extension, dual-user access and 2 port KVM switching. The dual user option enables two users to access the same computer making work more efficient. As a 2-port KVM switch one user can switch between and control two computers and a second user can control one computer. This makes it an ideal solution for storage, industrial applications and Small Office Home Office (SOHO) environments (i.e. boss and secretary).

The Minicom by Tripplite 0DT23001 KVM extender is comprised of two units which are easy to install: a transmitter and a receiver. Both are made with sturdy metal casing. The transmitter (which comes with built-in KVM cabling) connects to the computer and the receiver connects to a KVM console. All it takes is a few seconds. A button on the receiver unit makes it simple to switch between remote and local computers.
