The ADDERLink X2 has been designed to provide industry-leading video clarity, compatibility and high rack densities. 

The ADDERLink X2, (part of the ADDERLink X Series range), extends very high quality video, keyboard, mouse and transparent, high speed RS232 up to 300m (1000ft) over Category 5 or higher UTP cable.

The ADDERLink X2 operates in the same way as the ADDERLink X2 Silver, but does not have de-skew.




Video performance

Industry leading resolutions of 1600×1200 are achievable at 200m (650ft) and 1280×1024 at 300m (1000ft).

Video compensation

The ADDERLink X2 applies a high level of signal compensation that allows for a greatly increased range of very smooth and fine adjustments.

Emulated DDC

Unless an extender actively supports DDC some well-known high performance video cards cannot be used at high resolutions. The ADDERLink X2 fully supports DDC.

Rack options

Both transmitter and receiver units can be used stand-alone or up to 16 units can be mounted into a 2U chassis.
