Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. It appears this KVM will get its power via the attached computers and does not require an additional power supply. This switch is no longer available, but the newer version states that an optional 5Volt 1Amp power supply can be purchased for certain rare cases where the attached computers do not provide enough power.
Question: What is the power supply requirements of this switch, I have one, and expect I have the power supply also, but it will be in a box of power supplies so I have no idea which, they are broken up into output power supplies, so I just need to know what it needs.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This device is typically powered through the PS/2 ports of the attached computers. There was an optional power supply available for purchase (Belkin part number F1DN001-PWR), but we believe it is discontinued.
Here are the specifics on the power from the manual: By PS/2 computer keyboard port; optional 5V DC, 1A power adapter, center-pin-positive polarity.
