AdderLink XD522 is a high performance KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) extender that enables you to locate your critical computing hardware in a secure and temperature controlled environment away from the user work station whilst maintaining the same user desktop experience. The XD522 can transmit 4K @30Hz, or 2560x1600 at HDR10 or two 1920x1200 video streams to two monitors. Also supports DisplayPort audio, digital audio (S/PDIF), analog audio, Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and USB 2.0 (full and low speed) over CATx cable.
The system is uncompressed, where by every pixel of every frame are sent without loss. The receiver supports DisplayPort Dual Mode (DP++) which means that monitors which only support HDMI or DVI can be used (with the correct adapter cable).
Video, USB 2.0 (HID-only) and audio all pass along a single cable. A second CATx cable is required for the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 extension.
Distance is dependent on the monitor resolution, number of monitors, cable type and the number of connection breaks for patch panels and wall plates. See table on datasheet for details.
Enables connection of any USB human interface device from mice and keyboards through to graphics tablets, jog shuttles, joysticks and 3D explorers. Mass storage devices and isochronous devices such as webcams and headsets can be used through the transparent USB 2.0 Hi-Speed port.
The system has intelligent EDID management to allow the true characteristics of the monitor to be passed back to the computer.
The AdderLink XD522 extender is delivered in a zero config state so you can plug the units in and start working with them straight away. There is no need for drivers or software to be installed.
Supports DisplayPort audio and S/PDIF interface via an optical 3.5mm jack socket (dual use with analog audio via mini Toslink).
HD audio quality (stereo channel 24 bit sampled at 96kHz) is available to transfer audio from local to remote for Line in / Line out. Microphone in and headphone use cases are also supported.
Now supports 4K resolutions up to 3840x2160 (VESA timing).
All computers with DisplayPort, USB, audio, RS232 - requirement dependent.
The system supports DisplayPort 1.1 video resolutions to a maximum of 3840x2160@30Hz, 2560 x1600@60Hz or two 1920 x1200@60Hz screens. The receiver unit supports DisplayPort Dual Mode (DP++) also. DPCP and HDCP are not supported.
Supports up to six USB 2.0 devices (low or full speed). The system does not allow non-HID devices on ports marked “A”. Isochronous devices are supported (i.e. USB audio or video devices) on the Hi-Speed link only marked “B”.
The system delivers analog stereo audio (Line in, Line out) & supports microphone input & headphones. It also delivers S/PDIF (optical input) via a 3.5mm jack line in connector (mini Toslink). The DisplayPort audio path can have up to eight channels of 24-bit 192 kHz uncompressed “Pulsecode modulation”PCM audio or can encapsulate compressed audio formats in the audio stream. Supported compressed formats: DRA, Dolby MAT, DTS HD.
RS232 can be passed between the units to a maximum baud rate of 115K2 via the options port.
All known operating systems.

0 to 40ºC / 32 to 104ºF.
-20ºC to 70ºC / -4ºF to 158ºF
10% to 90% (non-condensing)
Max. 2,000m / 6,561 ft
Recommended cables are CAT7 shielded foiled twisted pairs:
Daetwyler 7702 Flexible patch cable
Daetwyler 7120 Bulk cable
|Resolution||Cable Type||Patch connections||Distance|
|2560x1600@60Hz or two 1920x1080@60Hz or 4k@30Hz||CAT7 Bulk (trunk)||0||100 metres|
|2560x1600@60Hz||CAT7 Patch||2||80 metres|
|Single 1920x1080@60Hz||CAT5e||2||150 metres|
Distances are achieved using single lengths of trunk/bulk cable with two 3 meter CAT7a patch cables. For each additional break/patch connection reduce distance by 5 meters. Preferably patch cables should be of type CAT7a and less than 2 meters. Patch cables over 2 meters must be CAT7a.
The AdderLink XD522 is not recommended for use with the NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800 graphics card. Please contact Adder technical support for more information.
