DataPro's 1169-series is a panel-mountable PS2 extension cable, designed for
installing a PS2 jack in any suitable plate, panel, or enclosure. Ideal for
remote connections to keyboards and mice from older Windows/Linux machines,
these mounting cables can turn a mess of wires into a clean and easily-accessible
interface for your hardware.
These cables feature a bulkhead-mount female PS2 connector on one end, and a standard
male PS2 connector on the other. The connectors are 6-pin Mini-Din (MD06), and the wiring
pinout is straight-through.
We also build this cable in any length you require.
With modern computer equipment, there should be no signal
loss out to 25 feet or so, and we have built this cable to
as long as 60 feet with no degredation; however, this does
vary widely depending on a number of factors, especially
the quality of the computer and keyboard.
To connect a mounted PS2 jack to a computer, you'll
want to use a PS2 male/male patch cable.
