Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
You should be able to use a PS2 / USB adapter such as the KMU2P PS2 to USB adapter to use a USB keyboard with your KVM model. That being said, depending on the application and adapter, sometimes USB / PS2 conversion may case issues, so we can't really guarantee results of this combination.
Alternatively, for a similar KVM switch that would natively support PS2 (and USB) sources but USB keyboard & mouse, you could get the Aten CS1754 KVM with 2L5302P MasterView PS/2 KVM Cables.
