Multistation provides access to one computer from multiple locations up to 50 feet away, or 250 feet away using the remote kit model. MultiStation allows multiple users at different KVM stations to share control over a computer on a first-come first-serve basis. Users cannot all use the computer at once, but must wait until one user relinquishes control in order to have access.

An integrated KVM emulator makes it seem as though all PS/2 or serial connected keyboards, video monitors, and mice will behave exactly as if they were connected directly to the computer. MultiStation's sharing feature does not require using any keyboard commands. The unit also splits the VGA video signal allowing the same screen to be displayed on all monitors simultaneously. The maximum resolution supported is 1920 x 1200, subject to cable distance and quality.

Multistation is produced in three models:

  • ML-2U • Standalone unit 2 KVM user stations to 1 CPU
  • ML-4U • Standalone unit 4 KVM user stations to 1 CPU
  • MLK-2U • Distributed units up to 250 feet apart, local unit with 1 KVM user station and 1 CPU, remote unit with 1 KVM
