Product Description

DKM FX Compact Switch - Fiber, 16-Port, Redundant Power
Enables matrix switching and management for DKM Extenders

ACXC16F Features

- Enables matrix switching support for 16 DKM FX Fiber endpoints.
- Supports central management of all attached endpoints, including firmware upgrading, user access control, configuration, etc.
- Other options available for applications that require CATx matrices or higher port count.

- Supports high-quality, full-frame digital video.
- Supports a wide range of peripheral interfaces like USB HID, USB 2.0, analog, and digital audio plus serial.
- Use with DKM modular and compact extenders (ACX1MT and ACX1MR series, and ACX1T and ACX1R series) to extend video, KVM, and USB 2.0 signals.
- Redundant power supplies included.
- Optional software bundles for external control, SYSLOG/SNMP, seamless cascading, etc. — one-time license purchase is good for the life of the switch.

The DKM FXC fiber switch is the compact edition to the DKM FX switching system. The DKM FXC is a KVM matrix switch that provides up to 48-ports in just 1U or 64-/80-ports in 2U of 19" rack space. This switch gives multiple KVM users fast and reliable access to high-quality, real-time digital video plus a whole host of peripherals across the enterprise. Use it in any application where many users have to interface with CPUs and other high-end AV equipment supporting high-quality video.

Supported video formats and interfaces
Using non-blocking switch technology, the DKM FXC Compact Switch processes and routes DVI single-link or HDMI resolutions with Full HD 1080p, dual link DVI-D up to 2560 x 1600 and now also DisplayPort up to 4K @ 30fps with little or no delay of video. What’s more, it not only supports digital video, but also VGA video and connections to a wide array of peripherals, including USB HID, USB 2.0, RS-232, RS-422, Wacom tablets, and even legacy PS/2 keyboards and mice. OS platform independent, the switch and its controller card can be accessed by Windows, Linux, and/or Mac OS users.

It’s especially ideal for enterprise networks and mission-critical control/command rooms, as well as video production or broadcasting applications where HD video is the standard. Many users can connect their KVM consoles to various multimedia sources (computer, CPUs, servers, Blu-ray, servers, etc.), either locally or in a distant room or office via the switch. And it’s very flexible. The DKM FXC Matrix Switch enables you to configure HD KVM switching and video routing exactly as you require.

Flexible design
The DKM FX Compact HD Video and Peripheral Matrix Switch is available with 8, 16, 32, 48, 64 or 80 ports. Choose from models with pure CATx- or pure fiber server/connections. Mixed options with 48 CATx-ports and 16 or 32 fiber ports are also available. Each port can be either used to connect a user or a computer allowing you to build up a free scalable user/CPU matrix.

Versatile switching capabilities
Switching can be performed using an on-screen display (OSD) or keyboard commands. Using the optional software packages you can control the switch even via an external media controller, an IP- or a serial connection. Or use the optional Force Connect and JAVA tool to define switching presets. No matter the route, KVM switching can be shared with any other KVM user, connected directly or connected remotely through a DKM extender. With the Glide and Switch software you may even switch by pulling your mouse over multiple screens to your target source.

Switches within milliseconds
Users can switch seamlessly and almost instantaneously from one CPU to another. It takes just milliseconds for this to happen (similar IP-based types of solutions can take as long as 15 seconds to perform this action).

For advanced administration use the optional ACX-SYS Software upgrade to integrate your DKM FXC KVM switching system into your SNMP management and syslog security.

Reduces downtime
Modular in design, the DKM FXC Matrix Switch enables you to change peripheral and CPU connections on the fly and ensures zero downtime.

Designed for easy expansion
Add connections and change inputs/outputs as your enterprise needs evolve. When a department purchases new hardware, just connect it via a DKM extender to an empty port at the switch or replace an existing connection. Using the ACX-CAS Software Upgrade, you can also cascade multiple switch chassis into larger DKM FX or DKM FXC switching systems.

Integration into DKM FX systems
The DKM FXC is also an ideal expansion tool for your DKM DX HD Video and Peripheral Matrix Switching System. If the ports on your DKM FX don’t leave enough room for additional user and server connections, choose the appropriate cost efficient FXC model together with the DKM Cascading License (ACX-CAS) and integrate further ports seamless into your FX switching system.
