The Adder VSC41 Synchronisation Cable allows two AdderView PRO KVM Switches (DP, DVI, or VGA) to connected together so that they operate in a synchronised manner. This allows creating dual-monitor, triple-monitor, quad-monitor, or up to 8-monitor KVM Switching systems.
Whenever an AV4PRO or AV8PRO channel is switched, it sends an RS232 command out on its serial interface (marked OPTIONS on the rear panel). An AVPRO unit will switch its channel if it receives the same command on its serial interface. Consequently, by linking the serial interfaces, a master unit may be made to automatically switch one or more slave units as shown in the diagram.
It should be noted that the synchronisation cable deliberately does not have the transmit pin of the Slave End connector linked to the receive pin of the Master End connector. To do so would cause the Slave unit to be able to switch the Master unit. This would setup an endless cyclical switching sequence that would prevent the AV4PRO devices from operating correctly.
