Simple to use and install: The AFP is a dedicated device that only requires its built-in cable be connected to the Cybex SC Switch’s RCU (Remote Control Unit) port.
Improve situational awareness: By placing the AFP within the user’s field of view, such as on top of the display, the user sees which channel is selected while they are working.
Designed for both desk or display mounting: The AFP can be mounted on top of the display or on the desk.
Ideal for ergonomic sit-stand desks: Using the Cybex AFP means the Cybex SC switch may remain under the desk and only the peripheral keyboard, mouse, card reader, monitor, and AFP cables must extend with the desks movement.
