What Comm Port on a CM6800-32x6 can I use to power a KBD100A, KBD200A, or KBD300A,?

Issue

Local keyboard will not power up when insert the keyboard cable into one of the COM port on the CM6800-32x6.

Product Line

Pelco Matrix

Environment

CM6800-32X6 Matrix Switcher
KBD100
KBD200A
KBD300A

Cause

The cable from the keyboard was inserted in the incorrect port.

Resolution

Use COM 5 and a straight cable (Serial Port 5) for a direct-powered local keyboard. COM 5 can ONLY power one KBD100/200A/300A Series keyboard.
