The ATEN KL1508AiM 8-Port 17" Dual Rail CAT5 LCD KVM over IP Switch is a control unit that allows secure access for 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 into "hide-away" when not in use, while the thin profile LCD monitor rotates back -flush against the rack- allowing convenient monitoring of computer activity.

The 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, the 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 cables make for a compact and efficient wiring configuration, while the use of KVM Adapter Cables to link to the computers permits any combination of PCs, Macs, Sun computers, and serial devices to coexist on the installation.

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, regardless of their physical location. The KL1508AiM is a suitable solution for your server room management.
