VK236 6-Port IR/Serial Expansion Box

The VK236 6-Port IR/Serial Expansion Box provides six additional IR/Serial ports for a flexible expansion of the ATEN Control System.
This allows users to control additional IR/serial devices in an environment where more devices are required. With the advantage of an Ethernet-based connection, the expansion box can be easily connected to the VK2100 Control Box via a LAN connection from a variety of locations across a network.
