A high-density 8-port Cat6 KVM switch or 16-port Matrix Cat6 KVM switch (up to 32 port) integrated into a 1U high rack console with an industrial LCD panel and 104-key keyboard with touchpad. Option for 16 or 32 port KVM switch, remote console with receiver or IP user console, KVM dongles, and DC power input.
Cat6 / Matrix Cat6 KVM Switch - Rack KVM Console
Designed for 19 inch wide rack cabinets, the LCD keyboard drawers combine an 8-port Cat6 KVM switch or 16-port Matrix Cat6 KVM switch into a 1U low profile rack drawer. The rack consoles have a built-in industrial LCD panel that vary in sizes from 17 inches to 20.1 inches and a keyboard with touchpad.
REFERENCE What is a Cat6 KVM Switch? Cat6 KVM remote ports provide the user console to access the rackmount server through Cat6 Ethernet cable (up to 150 meters) with a receiver (supported VGA, DVI, PS/2 & USB port). The local remote KVM device design allows users to control computer equipment up to 1000' feet away from the user consoles (keyboard, monitor, and mouse). They include support for standard category 5 cabling between computers and users interconnected by the switch device. Category 5 based KVM device communication uses proprietary protocols across what can be considered a "closed-loop" local area network infrastructure. In contrast to remote over IP devices, users operate computers in "real-time" because there is no noticeable latency in communication between user consoles and computers. Small interface devices at the computers connect to the keyboard, video, and mouse ports of the computer. They convert these signals to a format suitable for category 5 cable and transmit this data to the user stations that decode it into normal analog signals suitable for the peripherals. Similar devices exist for KVM over IP that only support transmitting the signals at distances of thirty to fifty feet. While interface, switch, and user devices are interconnected using category 5 cabling and can be patched through non-active patch panels, the data signals are not the equivalent of ethernet so care must be taken not to cross-connect these KVM components to ethernet switches. Local remote KVM systems can support over 256 access points with access to over 8000 computers. The closed-loop backbone is inherently secure and the long-distance connectivity allows users and computer equipment to be distributed across many different locations throughout a facility. Where users need to manage the connected computers from off-site locations, local remote KVM devices are configured with Remote over IP KVM support.
