The Kramer VP-14 is a unique product designed to distribute RS-232 commands as transmitted by a touch screen control system, personal computer, or other type of control system. It allows the user to control up to three compatible devices when just one serial port or RS-232 card is available. Similarly, it could be used to control a single device using up to three controllers (eg. PCs).
There are a total of four DB 9M ports, any of which can receive incoming RS-232. The incoming commands are then distributed to the remaining ports. An extensive set of DIP switches allows the unit to be configured for use with crossed or straight (uncrossed) cables. The VP-14 was designed specifically for use with Kramer switchers and routers, but can be easily adapted for use with any other equipment, which uses RS-232 in null-modem configuration. A 12V power supply is included for typical operation. The VP-14 is part of the Kramer TOOLS family of compact, high quality, and cost effective solutions for a variety of applications.
