The Adder CATX-USB-DA is a CATx Dual CAM with Dual Access Dongle that allows you to share a single computer between 2 sets of peripheral devices. In simple terms the CAM can be viewed as a combined video splitter and peripheral hub. This is useful for mixing local and remote stations or mixing KVM with exten

The module connects to the video and USB ports of your computer and then connects via CAT 5, 5e or 6 cabling to the AdderView CATx KVM switch or Adder extender receiver (either AdderLink X2 Silver or X200), each of which can be located up to 300 meters from the module. Your video display, keyboard, mice and speakers are linked to the remote devices.

The single access CATX-USB variant is not fitted with dual access but is otherwise functionally identical to this CATX-USB-DA model.

    USB Powered - No external power supplies needed

    The CATX-USB-DA CAM uses USB to pull power from the source host computer, eliminating the need for any separate power supply and thus simplifying installation. The USB cable must be connected to a USB port on the computer that is capable of providing up to 500mA.

  • Adder CATX-USB-DA User arbitration

    User arbitration

    Control of the host computer is arbitrated by the module on a first come, first served basis. At the moment that a key is pressed or a mouse is moved by a user, the keyboard and mouse of the other user are temporarily locked-out (the video images remain). The keyboard indicators of the locked-out user then begin to flash to confirm their status. After two seconds of inactivity from the user currently in control, the module returns to its idle condition and re-instates the keyboard indicators of the locked-out user.
