Rackmount LCD(CAT5 KVM)
More efficient server management for the rack environment
The SmartRack 16 is a dual rail rack drawer with a built-in, integrated 16 port KVM switch. The SmartRack 16 is designed to answer the growing demand in the rack-mount server environment for low profile local access at the rack. The integrated LCD/KVM switch combines the superior KVM control capabilities of the Smart CAT5 switch with the space saving easy to use RackManager II for efficient, effective control and management of servers in the rack.
KVM over CAT5 technology
The revolutionary integration of a CAT5 KVM switch with a rack manager console provides the cleanest server control at the rack. The 1U unit eliminates the need for bulky KVM cables. CAT5 KVM technology allows increased ventilation in the rack and greater flexibility in cable lengths. Servers can be up to 10m/33ft from the switch, which allows the SmartRack 16 to manage servers on neighboring racks, reducing the cost of ownership.
Centralized, local access to the servers on the rack
The 16 port KVM switch is fully integrated with the 1U rack drawer, saving you valuable rack space. The built-in, KVM switch allows you to connect up to 16 servers to the SmartRack 16, with support for multiple platforms (PS/2, SUN, USB). Control up to 256 servers when cascaded with the Smart CAT5 8/16.
Dual rail rack management
Occupying a mere 1U of rack space, the adjustable dual rail rack drawer allows users to view the screen even when the rack door is closed. Multiple control options include multi-layer security and eight keyboard language options.
