Adder CCS-PRO8 Mouse Switching Application Diagram

Adder CCS-PRO8 Features

  • Adder CCS-PRO8 mouse switching with Adder Free-Flow technology

    Seamless switching with Adder Free-Flow technology

    Free-Flow allows users to automatically switch between target computers simply by moving the mouse pointer from screen to screen. Unlike software-only variants, no software or networking is required on your mission critical computers for Free-Flow to work.

  • Adder CCS-PRO8 Improved desk ergonomics

    Improved desk ergonomics

    With only one keyboard and mouse required to operate eight computer systems, the desk space can be made more ergonomically effective and reduces the time taken for operators to multiplex to different systems.

  • Adder CCS-PRO8 Multi-Monitor Free-Flow

    Multi-Monitor Free-Flow

    The CCS-PRO8 system is able to support up to eight monitors per computer. To enable Free-Flow on multi-monitor computers, a driver must be installed on the target computer. This feature is currently available for Windows computers only.

  • Adder CCS-PRO8 Channel selection

    External control options

    The CCS-PRO8 unit can be controlled and switched via hotkeys, mouse clicks, Ethernet, Serial RS232 or remote 3 button mouse. Optionally, you can also use the RC8 remote switch to make your selection. With the open API, the unit can be easily set up and integrated into 3rd party systems.

  • Adder CCS-PRO8 USB Cable

    Instant switching with True USB Emulation

    Adder's True USB Emulation technology overcomes limitations of other KVM switches by emulating the true character of the connected devices to all the computers simultaneously. This means that you can use the extra function keys, wheels, buttons and controls, without sacrificing switching times.

  • Adder CCS-PRO8 On-Screen-Display (OSD) Diagram

    Independent simultaneous device selection

    Switching options enable you to use the keyboard and mouse on one computer whilst your USB peripherals and speakers are independently connected to different computers. You can of course still switch all the connected devices to any one of the connected computers.

  • Adder LED Light Module for CCS-PRO8 Free-Flow Switch

    Screen illumination module

    The CCS-XB8 illumination module is an optional accessory which connects to the CCS-PRO8. It gives users the option to have a LED indicator positioned on each screen to identify which screen is currently controlling. The color and intensity can be controlled for each screen. A maximum of ten LED indicators can be supported.

  • Adder CCS-PRO8 Dual-AC redundant power

    Redundant power

    For mission critical applications, CCS-PRO8 now supports dual power inlets (Dual-AC). If one source fails, the CCS-PRO8 will switch sources to the other power supply, so as not to interrupt normal use of the connected servers.

  • Adder CCS-PRO8 Keep-alive function

    Keep-alive function

    Users have the option to choose which computers stay alive. This prevents target computers from sleeping while not in use.

  • Adder CCS-PRO8 Audio cable

    Audio Mixing

    Users can choose which source audio to hear. Nominate all or your own choice of computer(s) audio, no matter which computer you are using.

Keyboards which support multiple devices behind a hub can now be supported.

The USB class of the supported devices on the console port is limited to HID devices only. It is not possible to use other USB devices e.g. card readers, memory sticks or touch screens on the console port. These devices need to be connected to the enumerated USB ports on the switch.

CCS-PRO8 is also known as the CCS-PRO8-US and CCS-PRO8-USA.

Question: We are looking at the CCS-PRO8 for 911 Control Center application. Would the CCS-PRO8 would support a peripheral Genovation keypad?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

As long as the manufacturer of the keypad supports the use of USB hubs the device should work, connected to one of the USB switched ports. It will likely not work connected to one of the emulated ports.

If the keypad needs to be switched between computers, when channels are changed - e.g. the user switches from computer 1 to 2 - the keypad will be disconnected from one computer and connected to the next. Depending on the computer treats these reconnects the keypad may not be available for a few seconds (until the USB enumeration process finishes on the computer).

Question: Are USB 3.0 cables supported with the CCS-PRO8?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

USB 3.0 cables are not compatible with CCS-PRO. The USB 3.0 connector is a different size on the B side - a little taller. Please use Adder VSC24 (6ft) or VSC29 (15ft) USB cables to connect sources.

Question: Can you connect a wireless blue tooth keyboard and mouse to this switch?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

Depending on your environment, the Adder CCS-PRO8 may work with your Wireless Keyboard & Mouse. Typically this would be achieved by connecting the wireless device receiver(s) to the USB Hub port(s) of the CCS-PRO8 KM unit.

The Adder CCS-PRO series also features Adders proprietary 'True USB Emulation', which increases your chances of compatibility with more modern devices like the Bluetooth receiver - "'True Emulation' allows you to use the extra function keys, wheels, buttons and controls that are commonly found on modern keyboards and mice. You can also typically use any other USB interface device including graphics tablets, jog shuttles, joysticks, 3D explorers, and wireless bluetooth keyboard & mouse*."

For more information on connecting wireless keyboards & mice to a Keyboard & Mouse (KM) Switch, please refer to our Using a Wireless Keyboard & Mouse with a KVM Switch Guide.

Question: Will this Adder CCS-PRO8 work on multiple Samsung Network Video Recorder XRN-1610's so that one mouse will be used?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

While I am not familiar with that specific video recorder model, this Adder CCS-PRO8 would indeed allow you to switch between and control multiple devices with USB, such as multiple video recorders, from one mouse.

Note however, 'Free-Flow' switching requires a driver to be installed on the target, which is only available currently on Windows platforms. That being said, the CCS-PRO8 units features multiple switching methods, such as via hotkeys, mouse clicks, Ethernet, Serial RS232, a remote 3 button mouse, or an optional RC8 remote controller to make your selection. With the open API, the unit can be easily set up and integrated into 3rd party systems.
