The CL5816N 19" LED-backlit LCD monitor and keyboard/touch pad modules slide independently of each other. To maximize space in your data center, the keyboard/touch pad module slides back to "hide away" when not in use, while the thin profile LCD monitor rotates back - flush against the rack - allowing convenient monitoring of computer activity. Quickly and conveniently switch computer access with station and port selection push button switches located on the keyboard module. Even when the keyboard module is in the retracted position you can still switch access with the Port Up/Port Down push buttons located on the monitor module.
The CL5816N supports both PS/2 and USB keyboards and mice for the connected computers, and the CL5816N supports USB peripheral devices to be used with the attached computers. A single CL5816N can control up to 16 computers. As many as 31 additional compatible KVM switches can be daisy chained together, so that up to 512 computers can all be controlled from a single keyboard, monitor, and mouse console.
