8-Port Cat 5 Dual Rail LCD KVM Switch with Daisy-Chain Port
ALTUSEN KL1508A LCD KVM Switch features independently retractable, dual slide 17" or 19" LED-backlit LCD monitor and keyboard with built-in touchpad. The KL1508A KVM switches are control units that allow IT administrators to access and control multiple computers from the LCD console and an extra PS/2 or USB KVM console.
For increased reliability and efficiency, RJ-45 connectors and Cat 5e/6 cable are used to link to the computers. Utilizing KVM Adapter Cables for the final linkup, the KL1508A permits any combination of PCs, Macs, Sun computers, and serial devices to coexist on the installation.
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 configuration information – such as its ID, port name, OS, keyboard language, etc. This feature allows administrators to relocate servers to different ports without having to reconfigure the adapters . Other advances found with these switches includes enhanced video quality – extending the distance to the servers to up to 50 m at a resolution of 1280 x 1024.

A KL1508A installation provides one of the best and most economical solutions ATEN offers to the SMB market. There is no better way to save time, space, and money than with a KL1508A KVM switch.
