Draco vario Repeater family

IHSE, a manufacturer of KVM products for the switching and extension of computer signals, has announced the release of a new, highly-flexible Draco vario Repeater family product range. The products are designed to bridge Draco tera switches in case of matrix failures.

KVM extenders are used for the extension of computer signals up to 140 metres with Cat X cable and 10 km with single-mode fibre optic cable. The installation of repeaters at intervals within a signal path multiplies the distance the signal can be transmitted to.
