Replaced by: Aten CE800B
Alternative options: Contact Us

The Aten CE800 is a USB Console Extender which allows access to a computer or USB KVM from a remote console from up to 820 ft. away. This USB extender is unique in that it not only supports Audio, but both units also support external USB mass storage compliant devices (Flash drives and self powered hard drives).   This USB console extender is an ideal solution for any installations requiring computers to be kept in controlled spaces, whether it be for security or environmental concerns. With the mass storage capabilities of the unit, updates, and patches can be applied without entering your restricted area.  Security features include two level access: Administrator and four User accounts, and a valid user name and password must be entered before the drive can be used [selectable].  The use of common network cable makes installation and relocation as simple as adding the proper length cable.

Question: buenos dias, yo tengo instalado este equipo USB KVM Extender modelo CE800b. ya tengo 2 a??os con varios instalado en la empresa pero desde hace un mes para viene presentando problemas ya que el monitor se prende y se apaga como si se le fuera la se??al, como un parpadeo, lo extra??o es que no es continuo, me sucede un rato y luego puede pasar un dia y me vuelve a suceder. mi pregunta es si saben cual puede ser esa falla y como la soluciono?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. We have a few steps that may solve your issue with flicker/signal loss. First off, loose connectors, either end of the Cat5 cable or the video cables connected to the units, could cause signal loss/degradation. Another issue could be that the cabling has become defective, unable to successfully transfer a 'full' or complete signal. The last cause for signal issues we have experienced is the transmission length exceeds the maximum length of 250 m (825 ft), thus causing signal degradation. If the above steps have already been checked/attempted, unfortunately the issue may be beyond our knowledge and we recommend using ATEN's Ask A Question, as ATEN's service department is extremely knowledgeable and can hopefully help you work toward a resolution.
