Extron Electronics this week announced three new USB switchers designed for AV systems integration. The SW2 USB, SW4 USB, and SW4 USB Plus offer two or four host inputs and provide flexible and dependable switching among the shared USB peripherals, company officials said.

The SW4 USB Plus features an emulation mode that ensures uninterrupted communication between host and peripheral devices for consistent performance. All three models are USB 2.0-compatible and incorporate several features to ensure ease of integration, configuration flexibility, and control, including port status indication and RS-232 pass-through, according to Extron.

The company said the SW USB Series is ideal for use in KVM, interactive whiteboard, and annotator-based applications where reliable USB switching is required.

"We designed the SW USB switchers to eliminate compatibility issues normally associated with USB switching," said Lee Dodson, Extron's vice president of marketing, in a statement.

SW USB series switchers act as active four-port USB hubs, supplying 500mA to attached devices. Additionally, RS-232 pass-through allows control of the SW USB and attached Extron audio and video switchers with a single command, providing streamlined operations. The SW USB Series incorporates rack-mountable, 1U half-rack width enclosures for simplified integration. All models include an external, universal power supply.
