Both the P2CIM-SER and P2CIM-SER-EU allow you to administer an ASCII serial device that is connected to a Dominion KX II, Paragon II or MasterConsole CAT (MCCAT) KVM switch. They do this by emulating an ASCII terminal and converting the serial data from the ASCII device into PS/2 keyboard and VGA video (800x600x60) signals.Installing either converter is quite easy. All you have to do is connect the converter to a serial port on an ASCII device using its serial DB9 connector, and then to a KVM switch using a standard Category 5e UTP cable. You also have to connect its USB connector to a powered USB port, or to a separately available Raritan PWR-SER-4 power adapter, to obtain power.One this is done, you can use the KVM switch's monitor and keyboard to access and operate the ASCII device. You can now administer the device through a Paragon II or Dominion KX II switch.
