Gefen CAT5 7500 USB Dual KVM Extender



Recommended replacement: Adder X50-MS2
Alternative options: Contact Us

The Gefen EXT-CAT5-7500 is built to extend two analog monitors, one USB-equipped computer peripheral (such as a scanner or printer), one PS/2-based keyboard/mouse, two audio outputs (for two sets of speakers, for example), one audio input (for microphone or similar audio device) and one RS-232 device (like a touchscreen). This unit supports a 4-port USB hub in the case that multiple USB-based computer devices need to be operated at the extended location.

The EXT-CAT5-7500 sends video separately using its own CAT5 cable. This means it requires an additional CAT5 extension cable but it also enables video refinement capabilities for the extended monitors. Both video signals can also be extended a few hundred feet further (up to 600-feet) if needed. The CAT5-7500 is the solution for those who need the industrious CAT5-7000 and have more discerning video requirements.   The EXT-CAT5-7500 is designed to offer unprecedented flexibility with computer peripherals, both versions work with all CRT and LCD computer monitors, USB peripherals, PS/2 keyboards and mice, RS-232 and audio devices (Mac or PC).

How it Gefen EXT-CAT5-7500 works:

The EXT- CAT5-7500 uses a sender and receiver methodology to transmit signals from the computer to the workstation. The sender unit connects to the computer using the cables provided. The receiver unit connects to the two monitors, keyboard/mouse, USB, RS232 and audio devices up to 330-feet away. Multiple CAT5 extension cables (up to 5), sold separately, connect the sender to the receiver and thus the computer to the extended workstation. Both the sender and the receiver units must be connected to a power supply. When fully powered and operational, the units extend all signals efficiently and reliably.

* NOTE: If you use a patch panel or patchcords both the cables and the patch have to be shielded.
