The add-on GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) module in the Draco vario KVM extender series offers a DB9M interface to connect a variety of external electrical devices.

Integration

The additional module is to be used with all basic modules (CON units and Draco U-Switch module) in the Draco vario series. Up to eight contacts can be defined as inputs or outputs via an integrated DIP switch. The programmed configuration is recognized and monitored by the Draco tera Tool, when used in a matrix setup.

Application

In multi-monitor applications based on a Draco tera MSC or U-Switch module setup, the GPIO add-on module allows LEDs to be connected to highlight the monitor with active keyboard/mouse control. This option was previously only available in conjunction with addition of seperate the Draco U-Switch. The GPIO add-on module also enables switching between monitors by an external dry-contact keypad or push buttons.

When used in combination with Draco tera KVM matrix systems, the I/O's can be used to force macro or favorite execution or to send predifined HID scan codes to a target source.
