SINGLE USER, FOUR CPU KEYBOARD/MOUSE SWITCH Lightwave Communication's Trading Floor Switch allows a single Sun-compatible keyboard and mouse to control two Sun and two PS/2-compatible CPUs. Valuable desk space is conserved by using a single keyboard and mouse to control multiple CPUs. Video signals are not switched by the Trading Floor Switch so that video information from each CPU may be simultaneously displayed on separate monitors, preventing the user from missing important data.


TRANSPARENT TO SUN AND PS/2 CPUs Keyboard and mouse emulation is supplied at all times to all attached computers regardless of switch position. There is no interruption of operation caused by a CPU detecting the absence of a keyboard. The Trading Floor Switch stores keyboard status (Caps Lock, Num Lock, etc.) for each CPU and restores the current status each time the CPU is selected.

SMALL SIZE WITH WIRED REMOTE CONTROL The Trading Floor Switch's small size, 4" (101.6mm) x4" (101.6mm) x1" (25.4mm), makes it easy to locate the unit away from valuable desktop space. A wired remote control allows users to switch between CPUs with just the push of a button; the selected CPU is indicated by an LED above the appropriate button. When the Trading
