8-Port PS/2-USB VGA LCD KVM Switch with Daisy-Chain Port and USB Peripheral Support

The CL5708 Slideaway™ LCD KVM Switch is a control unit that allows access to multiple computers from a single PS/2 or USB KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) console. A single CL5708 can control up to 8 computers. As many as 31 additional KVM switches can be daisy-chained to the CL5708, so that up to 256 computers can all be controlled from a single KVM console.

The CL5708 offers a space-saving, streamlined approach to KVM switch technology by integrating a keyboard, 17" or 19" LED-backlit LCD monitor, and touchpad in a 1U rack-mountable sliding housing.

CL5708M: 17" LCD
CL5708N: 19" LCD
