PS/2-USB VGA Console Module


The KA7230 Console Module offers secure access to the servers in a Matrix KVM Switch (KM0932/KM0532) from a PS/2 or USB console (monitor, keyboard, and mouse) up to 1000 feet (300 m) away. It provides an extra computer port for integration with a computer workstation, enabling users to seamlessly switch between the local computer and the servers in the Matrix KVM Switch. The KA7230 also features an intuitive graphical user interface, the Graphical OSD, with easy-to-use menus and icons that enable easy access and efficient management.

KA7230 has a built-in RS-232 port. Administrators can establish a serial terminal login to the Console Module in order to control the KVM port access for all consoles connected to switch – any console can be assigned to access any KVM port from a single interface point. This function is extremely useful in large data centers where the display of all the consoles can be projected onto a wall for easy viewing of all operations, and the entire installation can be monitored on a port-by-port basis.
