X-keys USB 3 Switch Interface KVM

This version of our USB 3 Switch Interface is configured to work with KVM (Keyboard Video Mouse) switches to control multiple computers from a single work station. Any keyboard combination or string of keystrokes can have a designated switch. The X-keys emulates a standard USB keyboard and eliminates issues with most KVM input limitations.

Please note:KVM version X-keys send pure USB HID keyboard codes and are intended for use only with hardware that does not have a traditional operating system behind it (like a KVM). If the X-keys will be connected directly to a Windows, OS X, or Linux computer, our standard X-keys products may be better suited to fit your requirements.

*This item has a lead time of five to ten working days. We will make every reasonable effort to prepare and ship your order as soon as possible. Your credit card will not be charged before we ship.

This version of our USB 3 Switch Interface is configured to work with KVM (Keyboard Video Mouse) switches to control multiple computers from a single work station. Any switch can trigger an action on your computer. Any keyboard shortcut your software uses can have a designated switch (start, stop, next, save...). Switches are easily set up to launch applications, open files, or type short lines of text like names, addresses, and account numbers. The X-keys emulates a standard USB keyboard and eliminates issues with most KVM input limitations.

Programming may be saved as a file and easily duplicated to multiple X-keys for multi-station installations.
