The operator can simply move the cursor across screen borders to instantly select the computer they need to control, providing the experience of a single desktop - a great saving in both time and desk space.
- Seamless switching between computers with Free-Flow technology
- Multiple computers, multiple monitors, single keyboard and mouse
- No software required for single screen computers
- Improved desk ergonomics
- Optional Interactive light modules for screen identification
Seamless switching with Adder Free-Flow technology
Free-Flow allows users to automatically switch between target computers simply by moving the mouse pointer from screen to screen. Unlike software-only variants, no software or networking is required on your mission critical computers for Free-Flow to work.
Improved desk ergonomics
With only one keyboard and mouse required to operate four computer systems, the desk space can be made more ergonomically effective and reduces the time taken for operators to multiplex to different systems.
The system is able to support up to Eight monitors per computer. To enable Free-Flow on multi-monitor computers, a driver must be installed on the target computer. This feature is currently available for Windows computers only.
External control options
The unit can be controlled and switched via hotkeys, mouse clicks, Ethernet, RS232 or remote 3 button mouse. With the open API, the unit can be easily set up and integrated into 3rd party systems.
Instant switching with True USB Emulation
Adder’s True USB Emulation technology overcomes limitations of other KVM switches by emulating the true character of the connected devices to all the computers simultaneously. This means that you can use the extra function keys, wheels, buttons and controls, without sacrificing switching times.
Independent simultaneous device selection
Switching options enable you to use the keyboard and mouse on one computer whilst your USB peripherals and speakers are independently connected to different computers. You can of course still switch all the connected devices to any one of the connected computers.
Screen illumination module
The CCS-XB illumination module is an optional accessory which connects to the CCS-PRO8. It gives users the option to have a LED indicator positioned on each screen to identify which screen is currently controlling. The color and intensity can be controlled for each screen. A maximum of ten LED indicators can be supported.
For mission critical applications, dual power inlets are now available.
Alpha drivers now available for customer trial
All computers equipped with certified USB1.1 and USB2.0 connections
All known operating systems for single screens except Linux operating systems, which often have no native support for absolute mouse positioning (see driver trial above). Free-Flow works by reporting absolute mouse coordinates. Free-Flow Configuration and firmware upgrade programs are available for use with Windows only.
