    DDX30 emulates a fully featured keyboard & mouse to all computers, maintaining fast switching speeds and instant USB interaction. In addition, HID touch screens can be extended back to the target computers and used to operate the multi-viewer OSD.

  • Adder DDX30 Multi-Viewer OSD

    Multi-view OSD for computer selection

    The unique multi-view on-screen-display (OSD) provides every user with a live preview of permitted computers direct on their screen. Users can highlight their selection using a mouse cursor or touch screen. Once highlighted, the user has the ability to choose from 4 different connection modes.

  • Adder DDX30 User Permissions

    User permissions

    Each user station can be granted different access permissions on a per computer basis. Once computer access is permitted, administrators can select which levels of control will be available, allowing users to choose between View only, Shared, Exclusive or Private connection modes.

  • Adder DDX30 User Station

    Exclusive and private connection modes

    The DDX30 enables your users to work safely and securely with a choice of Connection modes. In Exclusive mode, users have full KVM control while being able to share video content with other colleagues. By connecting in Private mode, users can work in privacy.

  • Adder DDX30 Dual & Quad Monitor support

    Multi-head video support

    DDX transmitters & receivers can be grouped to form 'Computers' and 'Consoles' that support dual-head & quad-head connectivity. For example, DDX can be used to build a 5 users x 10 computer dual-head matrix.

  • Adder DDX30 Secure web control interface

    Secure web control interface

    System administrators can securely access the DDX30 management tools to configure system settings, set access privileges and control video connections. The interface is secured using HTTPS & administrators must login each time they connect. An API enables switch control from a 3rd party control system.

  • DVI, DisplayPort & VGA CAMs for Adder DDX30

    'Zero U' dongles

    Powered by USB, the digital computer access modules sit in-line and are ideal for racks with limited available space. Modules are available in DVI, VGA, and DisplayPort options.

  • Adder DDX30 Dual-AC redundant power

    Redundant power

    For mission critical applications, DDX30 now supports dual power inlets (Dual-AC). If one source fails, the DDX30 will switch sources to the other power supply, so as not to interrupt normal use of the connected servers.

CAT Cable Extension Distance Details

Only use CAT7 or double shielded CAT6a cables with the DDX30; CAT5 cables may damage the unit and will void the manufacturer warranty.

Recommended cables are CAT7 shielded foiled twisted pairs:

Daetwyler 7702 Flexible patch cable
Daetwyler 7120 Bulk cable

Resolution (@60Hz)CablePatchesDist
1920 x 1200CAT7050m / 164ft
1920 x 1200CAT7240m / 131ft

Distances are achieved using single lengths of trunk/bulk cable with two 3 meter CAT7a patch cables. For each additional break/patch connection reduce distance by 5 meters. Preferably patch cables should be of type CAT7a and less than 2 meters. Patch cables over 2 meters must be CAT7a.

Question: Hello, In the solution described on this page, DDX30 to DDX-USR user stations, is there a DDX-USR or another user station compatible with the DDX30 that would support dual monitors? Thanks
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

DDX transmitters & receivers (DDX-USR) can be grouped to form user stations that support dual-head & quad-head connectivity. For example, DDX can be used to build a 5 users x 10 computer dual-head matrix. For modularity, multi-monitor set-ups are currently handled using multiple DDX-USR user stations - there isn't a separate dual-monitor user station.

You may also be interested in the IP-based Adder Infinity matrix solution which offers separate dual-monitor user stations.

Question: Can you stack DDX30 and DDX10 together?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

Adder DDX range isn't really designed for stacking / chaining of units. While this would be technically speaking possible by taking up 2 ports on each unit & with some software modifications (see below), for larger matrix based applications than DDX we would definitely recommend looking into the Adder INFINITY solution instead which features the ability to create an unlimited end-point matrix.

Hardware Connections:
You can have a DDX-USR from one of the switches connected to a DDX-CAM from the other and vice versa. You won't be able to be directly connect one switch to the other but via this back to back method of USR to CAM module then you could achieve this.

Adder DDX10 DDX30 chained / linked / stacked

Software Modifications:
  1. You will need to set a different "OSD Hotkey Modifier" for each DDX switch to prevent clashes in the OSD. Hotkey Modifiers allow you to pull up the On-Screen-Display and switch sources by using different hot key combinations for each switch.
  2. You are also at a risk of creating a loop but you can configure the access permissions for each USR to prevent this.

Again to be honest though, we would not recommend this setup, and Adder would not support this for technical support. Infinity would be a much cleaner solution and will be a lot less of a headache for the end user to actually use as a system without having to remember several keyboard combinations and which switch a source is connected to.
