Adder announced the availability of the Command & Control Switch. Command and control installations are by their nature critical to environments such as law enforcement, aviation, space exploration, power generation and heavy industry. As such, when new equipment is deployed into them, system integrators need the assurance that the equipment chosen will perform reliably from the moment it is plugged in. That is why so many command and control centres around the world rely upon Adder to supply their extension and switching solutions.
The latest addition to Adder’s range of command and control solutions is the CCS4USB (Command & Control Switch). The CCS4USB is designed to give a single operator control across 4 connected computers. This is achieved by switching keyboard and mouse between the computers to shift control of each computer. The monitors bypass the switch completely, so the CCS4USB can be deployed alongside DVI, VGA, Display Port or any video standard chosen. Integrated USB2.0 switching is powered using Adder’s new USB True Emulation technology which means the device can connect instantaneously to almost any USB interface (HID) device from graphics tablets and joysticks to touch screens. Interoperability is of the utmost importance in a command and control environment where the choice of interface devices could be incredibly varied or even custom to a specific application.
Flexibility is key to the CCS4USB. The switch enables the Keyboard and Mouse console to work on one computer whilst USB peripherals are connected to another. Furthermore, the audio can be set to continuously play communications from any one of the attached computers. Users can of course still switch all connected devices to any one of the connected computers at the touch of a button.
