The Extron SW USB Pro Series are two- and four-input USB switchers that facilitate USB 3.2 compatible switching between multiple host devices and multiple USB peripherals. They provide integrator-friendly solutions for USB‑C and Thunderbolt hosts and peripherals with data rates up to 10 Gbps. HID peripheral ports support hotkey input switching via a connected keyboard. SW USB Pro switchers also support auto and manual host and peripheral switching and control via RS‑232. They feature Host and Peripheral Emulation Mode, which provides "keep alive" functionality by continuously mimicking host and keyboard/mouse communications within the switcher. This emulation eliminates the need for enumeration and reduces the chance of failed device communications throughout the switching process.
SW USB Pro Series switchers act as active USB hubs, supplying power to attached devices. In addition, the switchers are USB 3.2 compatible including SuperSpeed USB 5 Gbps and 10 Gbps, and are backward-compatible with all previous USB data rate specifications. The SW USB Pro Series incorporates rack-mountable, 1U, half-rack width enclosures for simplified integration and includes an external, universal power supply for worldwide power compatibility.
