Where to Place the Switch
The compact size of the Switch makes it perfect for desktop placement.
Consider the following when deciding where to place the Switch: whether
or not you intend to use the direct-access port selectors; the length of
the cables attached to your keyboard, mouse, and monitor; the location
of your CPUs from your Console; and the length of the cables you will use
to connect your computers to the Switch.
Cable Distance Requirements
USB signals are the strongest when transmitted up to 15 feet between
the Switch and the CPU. Beyond 15 feet, probability of signal degradation
increases, which can cause the device to fail.
Cautions and Warnings
Avoid having cables near fluorescent lights, air conditioning equipment, or
machines that create electrical noise (e.g., vacuum cleaners).
