X-keys PS/2 Recorder Application
Copy Programming from One PS/2 X–keys to Another
While the PS/2 X–keys are incredibly simple to program, we frequently get requests for the capability of reproducing multiple units with identical programming. Copying one or two units from a master is easily accomplished by connecting the “recording” X–keys downstream from the master (click here for a detailed explanation). Programming a large number of units, or implementing changes across a group of X–keys was more difficult, until now. Our PS/2 Host Emulator allows two way communication between the computer and the PS/2 X–keys to “read” the programming data from the X–keys’ non–volatile memory. This data file can then be saved, edited, or copied to another X–keys.

How to Use X–keys PS/2 Recorder
Reading Programming Data from an X–keys
Writing a Data File to an X–keys
Editing a Programming Data File
Reading an X–keys or opening a data file from the File Menu will load the data into PS/2 Recorder. On the interface, right–clicking any key will open a programming menu. Selecting “Create/Edit Macro” will display keystrokes programmed for that specific key. Any changes you make will be saved when you click the OK button. Writing the edited file to the X–keys will transfer your changes to its internal memory.
Duplicating a Single X–keys PS/2 Device
Simply plugging the X–keys in between your master X–keys and the PS/2 port provides a quick, easy way to copy the programmed keys. Throw the Programming Switch up on the Recording X–keys, tap the key to record, tap the same key on the Master X–keys, tap the same key on the Recording X-keys and repeat until all keys have been copied.
This will transfer all keystrokes. If you use any Special Features like a pause or a separate press and release command, these will have to be reprogrammed on the Recording X–keys to take effect.
