AdderLink X Series X2-Silver & X2-Silver Dual Access

The AdderLink X2-Silver, (part of the AdderLink X Series range), extends very high quality video, keyboard, mouse and transparent, high speed RS232 up to 300m (1000ft) over Category 5 or higher UTP cable. The AdderLink X2-Silver has been designed to provide industry-leading video clarity, compatibility and high rack densities
A2 Silver and X2 Silver DA set up
  • Video performance Industry leading resolutions of 1600x1200 are achievable at 200m (650ft) and 1280x1024 at 300m (1000ft).
  • Video compensation The AdderLink X2-Silver applies a high level of signal compensation that allows for a greatly increased range of very smooth and fine adjustments.
  • Emulated DDC Unless an extender actively supports DDC some well-known high performance video cards cannot be used at high resolutions. The AdderLink X2-Silver fully supports DDC.
  • Brightness control The AdderLink X2-Silver offers its own brightness correction to ensure that the image is crisp, clear and bright, regardless of the distance.
  • Rack options Both transmitter and receiver units can be used stand-alone or up to 16 (7 X2-Silver Dual) units can be mounted into a 2U chassis.
  • Integrated DeSkew The AdderLink X2-Silver has integrated skew correction with a 300MHz bandwidth, meaning that it is more than powerful enough to counteract the negative effects of the skew.
