The AdderLink X2-Silver Dual Access extends very high quality video, keyboard, mouse and transparent RS232 up to 300m/1000ft over Category 5 or higher cable whilst providing KVM access at the computer for local as well as remote control. Building on the hugely successful AdderLink X-Series, the AdderLink X2-Silver Dual Access has been redesigned to significantly improve performance, specification and value for money whilst remaining a modular and flexible solution.
A major improvement offered by the AdderLink X2-Silver Dual Access is the increased distance over which video can be transmitted and the very high resolutions that can be achieved at these distances. Industry leading resolutions of 1600 x 1200 are achievable at 200m/650ft and 1280x1024 at 300m/1000ft.
Integral electronic DeSkew is also provided to compensate for any colour skew effects that may be introduced by long CATx cables, achieving crystal clear video, even at longer distances. For maximum convenience all video adjustments may be simply made using the keyboard.
DDC circuits are also fitted to enable the computer to query the monitor so that the video card can be optimally configured. Without this circuitry, some well known high performance video cards cannot be used at high resolutions. All X2 extenders feature transparent serial ports that enable a wide range of serial devices to be connected at baud rates up to 57,600.
Integral de-skew - Red, green and blue colour signals may be independently delayed relative to the other colours to compensate for the colour skew introduced by longer CATx cables. The cable skew is produced due to wire length differences between different twisted pairs in a CATx cable that arise due to the different twist rates used to reduce signalling crosstalk. The amount of cable skew seen depends on the cable type used and the cable length. The X2-Silver Dual Access provides up to 62ns of DeSkew for each colour with a fine 2ns resolution. This means that high-resolution video can be accurately de-skewed even at long cable distances. The DeSkew circuitry supports 300MHz bandwidths which means that the DeSkew function does not adversely affect the video quality (a common problem on older generation extenders). DeSkew setup is easily done using the keyboard and settings are persistent even when the X2-Silver Dual Acces is powered off which means that setup only needs to be done once.TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS Video resolutions
