8-port CAT-5 dual-rail 17" LCD KVM over IP switch
with shared local/remote user access and a daisy-chain port
KL1508AiM dual-rail LCD KVM switch is a control unit that allows secure access up to 8 computers from a single KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) console. It consists of an integrated LCD monitor, keyboard, and touchpad in a 1U rack-mountable retractable sliding housing.
The LCD and keyboard/touchpad modules slide independently of each other. To maximize space in your data center, the keyboard/touchpad module slides back to "hide away" when not in use, while the thin profile LCD monitor rotates back - flush against the rack - allowing convenient monitoring of computer activity.
KL1508AiM features IP-based connectivity that allows local and remote operators to monitor and access the computers on your installation. Because it uses TCP/IP for its communications protocol, KL1508AiM can be accessed from any computer on the LAN, WAN, or Internet - whether that computer is located down the hall, down the street, or halfway around the world.
Compact, high-density, RJ-45 connectors and CAT-5e/6 cable make for a compact, efficient, wiring configuration, while the use of KVM adapter cables (dongles) to link to the computers, permits any combination of PCs, Macs, Sun computers, and serial devices to coexist on the installation.
For added convenience, ports for an external keyboard, monitor, and mouse are provided on the rear panel - permitting you to manage the switch from a local console. There is also an external USB mouse port on the keyboard module, allowing you to use an external mouse, rather than the touchpad.
Enhanced features include a Panel Array Mode™ that displays the video output of up to 8 computers at the same time, and a Message Board that allows logged in users to conveniently and instantly communicate with one other - no matter where in the world they actually are.
KL1508AiM is an ideal solution for your server room management.
KL1508AiM provides a streamlined method to conserve server room rack space by integrating a retractable LCD monitor, keyboard, and touchpad in a 1U dual-rail housing that is designed to install easily and operate smoothly.
The dual-rail system separates the LCD module from keyboard/touchpad module so they can move independently of each other. This allows the keyboard/touchpad to be pushed back into the housing and out of the way when not in use, while the LCD screen can be rotated up to the rack for convenient monitoring of server operation - the LCD module's range of rotation is adjustable to provide the best viewing angle.
Enhanced Console Control
The extra console ports provide administrators with the ability to use a standard keyboard/monitor/mouse console, if they like. Other, even more powerful options for the external console ports are to connect a KVM extender.
KL1508AiM features RJ-45 connectors and CAT-5e/6 cable to link to the computers. Utilizing PS/2, USB, and serial KVM adapter cables (dongles) for the final linkup, KL1508AiM reduces cable bulk and simplifies cable management.
Adapter Cables (dongles) with ID
KL1508AiM supports automatic ID recognition of the new ATEN KVM cable adapter (dongles) KA7000 series. Using the new adapter cables (dongles) with ID means it is not required to change cable configuration settings when moving cables from port to port- allowing you to hot-swap port connections without having to reconfigure attributes.
Panel Array Mode™
Panel Array Mode™ permits simultaneous monitoring of the video output of the installations' servers. Operators can monitor the screen display of up to 8 servers for real-time server monitoring.
Blade Server Support
Support for blade server associations with KVM switch ports - allows the blade server chassis and individual blades to be integrated into the sidebar tree view for easy access.
Automatically synchronizes the local and remote mouse movements for perfect alignment of mouse pointers, regardless of server mouse acceleration settings.
To alleviate the problem of access conflicts arising from multiple logins, the Message Board functions like an Internet chat program, allowing users who are logged in to instantly communicate with each other.
