Typical Application

Translator application


Translator is a simple but versatile compact unit that converts PC keyboard and PS/2 mouse to four different types of computers. Translator was designed to provide a simple means for connecting Apple, Sun, DEC Alpha, and SGI Onyx computers to a Rose or any other PC type KVM switch.

Translator uses power from the KVM switch or computer so that no external power is required. Plugging it in, turns any PC KVM switch into a multi-platform switch.

Sun versions can be programmed to emulate any language. The Apple and Sun versions both support power-on from the keyboard. Translator is used with Rose UltraCable to provide the cleanest solution for connecting computers.
