Features

  • Compact design provides easy one-touch switching of a USB device or hub between two computers
  • Great for sharing a printer, scanner, or other USB device between two computers (one computer has access at a time)
  • LED indicator lights show which connected computer has control of the attached devices
  • Switch works with any USB-enabled computer without drivers–attached devices may require drivers as usual
  • Attach a powered USB hub that is connected to keyboard, mouse, and USB graphics adapter for an all-USB KVM solution

Description

The Plugable USB2-SWITCH2 USB 1.1/2.0 switch is the ideal solution for one-touch switching of access between two computers to a USB-based mouse, printer, scanner, hard drive, or any other attached USB 1.1/2.0 device. Attach a powered USB hub to the USB2-SWITCH2 instead of a single device for switched access to everything connected to the hub.

Features
The USB2-SWITCH2 works without drivers on any USB-enabled computer (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.). Connect two computers to the switch via the included five-foot USB A/B cables, attach either a single USB device or a USB hub connected to multiple USB devices (cable not included for switch-to-device/hub attachment), and start enjoying the benefits of switched access. Driver installation for the attached devices may be required on the connected computers.

A single button press is all that's required to change control of the attached devices between the connected computers. LED indicator lights show which connected computer has control.

For anyone considering a KVM switch to provide two-computer access to a single keyboard, mouse, and display, the same result is possible with the Plugable USB2-SWITCH2. Just attach the switch to a powered USB hub that's connected to a keyboard, mouse, and USB graphics adapter for an all-USB KVM solution.

The switch can connect USB 1.1/2.0-compliant devices and hubs, but to function in USB 2.0 speed mode, the connected computer and attached device or hub both must comply with the USB 2.0 standard.

What's in the Box
One Plugable USB2-SWITCH2 compact USB 1.1/2.0 switch with two USB-B female ports and one USB-A female port
Two five-foot USB A/B cables for connecting two computers to the switch
