Affordable and Practical USB Control Solutions

With advances in technology, the KVM Switch has been updated to support USB peripherals and this device was known as USB KVM Switch. Using this, one can control up to 32 computers having one pair of USB peripherals and switch. Several variants such as the 2, 8, 4, 16 and 32 port variants with this device can be found, but also for even larger configurations the apparatus can be daisy chained together.

Supporting resolutions up to 1920 x 1440 including native SUN resolutions of 1152 x 900 at a band width of 200 MHz, they are appropriate for a number of platforms such as SUN, IBM, HP, Dell, Solaris, and Mac, and Windows Vista/2003/XP/2000, Netware, UNIX and Linux.

Since the USB switch only supported VGA video tracks, the DVI KVM Change was introduced since these screens became popular. This allows commanding DVI enabled computers using one DVI monitor, USB keyboard and USB mouse. Supporting resolutions of 1600 X 1200 @ 60Hz combined with different platforms and operating systems, they have been excellent for applications that need mixed analog / digital performance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additional key features are the Auto Scan Mode for monitoring PCs, placement of CPUs far from unpleasant work environments and LEDs demonstrating the PC status. Simple to set up with plug and play with technology, with switching between sources done using RS232, IR remote control or front panel push buttons. The most important limitation of those switches is space, that will be restricted by USB cable lengths.

The IP KVM Switch was introduced to over come that. With the assistance of this device a user may monitor servers via a 128 bit secure browser from any place on earth over TCP/IP. A non-intrusive solution, it allows remote access and control. Suitable for almost all operating systems, these switches have discretionary 12, 24 and 48 volt DC power.
