****** Page 9 ****** Chapter 1 Introduction Overview The CE770 is a USB (Universal Serial Bus) based KVM Extender with Deskew function. The automatic signal compensation and RS-232 serial functionality allow access to a computer system from a remote USB console (USB keyboard, monitor, and USB mouse). Because it allows access to a computer system from a remote console, the CE770 is perfect for use in any type of installation where you need to place the console where it is conveniently accessible, but you want the system equipment to reside 111 a safe location — away from the dust and dirt of the factory floor, or the harsh environmental influence of a construction site, for example. This allows users to deploy system equipment over large distances. The CE770’s automatic delay line synchronizing function (ATEN patent) corrects RGB color phase and timmg errors that occur over long distance transnnsslons. It also enables you to manually tune the R/G/B signal settings, store the settings and retrieve them later using the memory button. The CE770 is also useful for control and security purposes, where you can have the system unit in a secure area at the same time that you put the console in the most convenient location for user access. This is ideal for managmg highly confidential data systems. The CE770 improves on previous designs by: l) RGB delay tuner — the CE770 supports RGB delay tuner to automatically or manually synchronize the RGB signals; 2) the addition of an RS-232 port, on both the Local and Remote Units the RS-232 port on the Local Unit allows you to connect to a serial terminal for configuration, while the RS-232 port on the Remote Unit allows you to connect serial devices such as touchscreens and barcode scanners; 3) the addition ofa dedicated KVM port section on the Local Unit so you can simply and easily include a KVM switch in your installation; 4) using inexpensive Cat 5e cable instead of bulkier, more expensive, standard cables, for a much neater, more convenient, more reliable data transfer connection; 5) its ability to sense the distance to the system and automatically adjust the gain accordingly; and 6) featuring a custom ASIC to ensure the utmost in reliability and compatibility.

****** Page 10 ****** CE770 User Manual Further CE770 key features are built-in 8KV 15KV ESD protection and 2KV surge protection, and color adjust picture compensation pushbuttons on the Remote Unit to adjust the picture on the remote console. Setup is as easy as can be — simply connect the computer system box and local console to the Local CE770L Unit; run the Cat 5e cable to the Remote CE770RQ Unit (up to 300 meters away); and plug the remote console Into the Remote Module. 2
