• By daisy chaining up to 31 additional KH1516A switches, as many as 256 computers can be controlled from the original KVM console
• Superior video quality - upports video resolutions up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz for up to 98 feet; 1600x1200 @ 60Hz for up to 131 feet, and 1280x1024 @ 75Hz for up to 164 feet
• Three port selection methods: front panel push-buttons; hotkey keyboard combination; multi-language OSD (on screen display)
KH1516A KVM switches are control units that allow IT administrators to access and control multiple computers from a single USB (or PS/2) and VGA KVM console (keyboard, monitor, and mouse). Operators can take control of 16 computers. By daisy chaining up to 31 additional switches, as many as 512 computers can be controlled from a central KVM console.
These switches have been designed with unique and powerful features that enable administrators to manage their entire server room and data center devices easily and conveniently. For example, the advanced Adapter ID feature stores the adapter cable's (dongle's) configuration information such as its ID, port name, OS, keyboard language, and more. This feature allows administrators to relocate servers to different ports without having to reconfigure the adapters. Other advantages found with these switches includes Full HD video quality and the ability to extend the distance to the servers to up to 98 feet at a resolution of 1920x1200.
A KH1516A installation provides one of the best and most economical solutions ATEN has to offer the SMB market. There is no better way to save a data center time, space, and money than with a KH1516A KVM switch.
Three port selection methods: front panel push-buttons, hotkey keyboard combination, and multi-language OSD (on screen display).
Auto Scanning and Broadcast Mode
Auto Scan provides hands-free monitoring of selected devices at changeable speeds. Broadcast Mode sends commands from the console to all computers, allowing you to perform operations (such as software installations, upgrades, shutdowns, etc.) on all computers simultaneously.
Multiple User Accounts
Supports up to 10 user and 1 administrator accounts.
Space-Saving RJ-45 Connectors and CAT-5e/6 Cabling
This space-saving innovation means that KH1516A can be conveniently installed in a 1U system rack, and the installation can take advantage of the internal network wiring built into most modern commercial buildings. This reduces cable clutter for a neat and tidy data center environment.
Adapter Cables (Dongles) with ID Function
KH1516A KVM switch supports automatic ID recognition of ATEN KA7000-series dongles. Using these adapters with an ID means no cables need to be reconfigured when moving them from port to port. Device ID and attributes are stored in the dongle allowing you to hot-swap port connections without having to change the settings.
