The AMIQ provides the primary interface between an attached device (KVM switch or PS/2, SUN or USB server) and the AMX system. It provides all Keep Alive, keyboard emulation, DDC (Digital Data Channel) and AMX support in a server-powered convenient cable format. This eliminates the need for extra rack space, power outlets or additional cables. For ease of installation, each AMIQ has a factory-assigned unique number that identifies the attached server within the system. The connection between the AMX system and the AMIQ is via industry standard UTP cabling.
