Answer: Unfortunately, it will not. USB has a range of about 35 feet before there is too much signal degeneration. You would need to use a simple KVM extender such as the X-50: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/x50.html
Question: I currently have a keyboard and trackball connected to a powered USB hub and then sent 30 ft to a PC. It works fine. I want to now use that same keyboard and trackball and use it o a second PC located next to the first. Can I connect my Key/Trackball to this KVM, use the single USB cable I am currently using to connect to the single PC and use it to connect the two KVM units?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, the answer really depends on the specific set up and hardware involved. You might be able to plug the keyboard and trackball into the KVM, and then run 2 separate USB cables for the computers (you would need two cables, so that each computer was plugged into its own port/channel). Again, depending on the setup and hardware involved, you may be able to plug both computers into the KVM, then run the USB hub out the 30' to the keyboard and trackball (this solution my cause issues with hotkey switching and keyboard/mouse emulation). Neither option addresses the VGA/audio input (if you need that capability).
Depending on your particular needs, the best solution might be a KVM extender: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/kvm-extenders.html .
