The AdderLink X2-Silver Dual Access KVM extender extends high quality video, keyboard, mouse and transparent RS232 up to 300m/1000ft over Category 5 or higher cable while providing KVM access at the computer for local as well as remote control. The X2-DA-Silver offers increased distance over which video can be transmitted and the high resolutions that can be achieved at these distances. This CAT5 extender achieves resolutions of 1600 x 1200 at 200m/650ft and 1280x1024 at 300m/1000ft.

Integral electronic DeSkew is also provided to compensate for any color skew effects that may be introduced by long CATx cables, achieving crystal clear video, even at longer distances. All video adjustments may be made using the keyboard.

Question: Can I use the X2-DA-SILVER-US (One) Local with two remotes and, would each remote will have their own access to the local computer/server? I am replacing a now obsolete AdderLink X-Series - X-KVM/R (One local with two remotes) with a similar KVM extender.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

This X2-DA-SILVER-US is very similar to the AdderLink X-Series, but the second user would be a local user and would not use a seperate receiver.

Adder does not offer a one-to-one replacement including the dual cat5 remote users for the discontinued X-KVM/R, but another vendor of ours, Rose Electronics, offers a couple of very similar products that could work as an exact replacement:
Rose MLK-TMDVPRAVP (PS/2 for keyboard & mouse)
Rose MLK-TMDVURAVU (USB for keyboard & mouse)

Depending on your application, we may have other options for you as well, for example IP based solutions- Please feel free to contact your KVM Switches Online sales representative directly!

Question: The X2-DA-Silver (Dual Access) w/ RS232 is compatible with touch screens?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The Adder X2-DA-SILVER extends Serial RS232 signals fully transparently - it does not change or interfere with the signal in any way. If your touchscreen display has a Serial RS232 interface, the X2-DA-SILVER should be compatible with your touchscreen.

If your touchscreen needs a USB connection for the screen instead, you may also be interested in the similar Adder X-USBPRO.
