Hauppauge, NY, United States, 2013/09/09 - Vetra Systems intelligent USB workstation splitters-multiplexers, the USB-884-KM and USB-884-KMV, allow four USB workstations controlled, intelligent access to one PC. One workstation at a time has access to the PC, preventing unwanted data input.
Vetra Systems Corporation has introduced two models of intelligent USB workstation splitters-multiplexers, the USB-884-KM and the USB-884-KMV. These unique products go beyond the functionality of USB hubs by automatically allowing only one workstation at a time to have access to the PC. This prevents unwanted input from the other workstations as might occur when all input devices have access to the PC. Vetra’s new USB workstation splitters effectively form an intelligent, automatically switched USB hub. Each workstation can consist of one USB keyboard, one mouse and one video monitor, giving PC access to a total of eight devices plus four monitors.
The USB-884-KM model splits/multiplexes devices only, while the USB-884-KMV model also splits/multiplexes the PC’s video output to four monitors simultaneously, in addition to the devices..
On both the USB-884-KM and USB-884-KMV models, the first workstation to generate keyboard or mouse input "seizes" the PC and becomes the "active station". It remains "active" until no further keyboard or mouse input is detected for a period of five seconds, at which time it relinquishes control of the PC and the whole process starts again.
Both models have key sequence activated lock-to-station. Input to the PC is limited to the selected workstation, until the unlock sequence is entered at the active station.
The USB-884 "MegaMux"™ family of USB Splitters/Multiplexers use Vetra's US patented, unique TruReflekt™ USB device enumeration technology. The keyboard and mouse are not just emulated, as in most competitive products, but truly and fully enumerated. This means that all special features that may be present in the keyboard, mouse, or another input device, are conveyed to the PC, and are available to the user during device operation. It also means that a workstation can consist of a variety of Human Interface Devices (HIDs), and is not limited to just keyboards and mice.
Vetra can modify these products on custom order basis to suit special applications.
These USB workstation splitters-multiplexers extend Vetra’s existing family of workstation splitters-multiplexers by offering support for four USB workstations.
Vetra’s Splitters/Multiplexers are widely used in intelligent factory automation, interconnected industrial control, laboratories, audio/video studios, point-of-sale, and instrumentation applications.
