Quad workstation Touch Technology KVM Splitter, the VIP-884-TS TouchMux


The VIP-884-TS "TouchMux"™ Touch Technology KVM Splitter / Multiplexer allows four local workstations, each consisting of a keyboard, PS/2 mouse and touch screen video monitor, to share access to one PC. At the heart of the VIP-884-TS is Vetra's advanced keyboard, mouse and touch technology emulation, which provides error free boot up and mouse driver loading to the connected PC, as well as simple one touch workstation selection for ease of operation. It is compatible with all popular keyboards and mice including Microsoft IntelliMouse, and serial touch screen monitors from 3M and ELO in video resolutions up to 1600 by 1200 at 75Hz. The VIP-882-TS is compact in design, easy to install and operate, and operates transparently with all IBM PCs, PC operating systems and applications.


Only one workstation may access the PC at any given time. This prevents unwanted input from other workstations as might occur from accidental keystrokes, or a bump to the mouse. Workstation selection has two modes. The default mode utilizes a 5 second time out feature that monitors all workstations for keyboard, mouse or touch data input. The first workstation to generate keyboard, mouse or touch screen data, "seizes" the PC and becomes the "active station". It remains "active" until no further keyboard, mouse or touch data is detected for a period of 5 seconds, at which time it relinquishes control of the PC and the whole process starts again. The second mode provides a lock and release feature which allows the user of an "active station" to override the 5 second time out feature and manually lock out (3 taps on the left Shift key) the other workstation, and then release control (3 taps on the right Shift key) when finished so that all other workstations are available once again to the PC.

When control of the PC passes from one workstation to another, the intelligence in the TouchMux Touch Technology KVM Splitter updates any changes to the keyboard status indicators, CAPS, SCROLL, and NUM Lock, to the current "active station". The connected touch screen monitors are not switched, regardless of which workstation is active, and are on at all times.

Any workstations keyboard and/or mouse may be disconnected and re-connected (hot-plugged), or exchanged at any time without having to power down the connected PC. This feature is useful if a connected device fails during a critical application. The VIP-884-TS is powered by an external power supply (VIP-210 see Accessories) included with the unit. For applications requiring rack mounting, an optional 2U height rack mount tray is available (see Accessories ).

All Vetra Touch Technology KVM Splitters are designed and manufactured in the USA for use around the world for enterprise mission-critical applications and are backed by a Limited 3 Year Warranty.
