With the ServSelect(tm) III 2 x 8, two users can access up to 8 servers and network devices from PS/2® consoles. Plus you can cascade up to 8 ServSelect III units to control up to 128 or 256 servers in your system! Simply put, the ServSelect III is ideal for IT departments where two people need access to multiple servers.

This two-user switch comes with a pair of analog port sets to accommodate two monitors and a pair of PS/2 keyboards and mice. It can control, switch between, troubleshoot, and reboot all connected servers and other ServSwitch(tm) units.

Convenient on-screen menus
Intuitive on-screen menus enable you to configure your system and select servers and other switches. You can easily identify each server by a unique name, ID number, or port number.

Three operational modes enable you to manage your switching activities: Scan, Broadcast, and Switch.

In Scan mode, the ServSelect III sequentially displays the status of up to 16 servers on-screen. You select which servers are scanned in a sequence and how many seconds each is displayed.

In Broadcast mode, a user can simultaneously control more than one server to ensure that all selected servers receive the same input.

In Switch mode, either user can select and share any server at any time.

Keep-alive power safeguards, password protection, and more.
The ServSelect III is equipped with robust features that keep your system running and secure. BIOS-level access ensures connection to the attached servers, regardless of the servers' health or their operating system. What's more, the ServSelect III's keep-alive safeguard enables the attached servers to continue functioning even if the switch experiences a power failure.

Protect your system with a screen-saver password for each user.
When a user station is unused for a period of time, the monitor enters a screen-saving mode and can only be unlocked by typing a password.

The ServSelect III is also flash upgradable, which means it's built for your system's future. Upgrade your firmware at any time by using the switch's simple update utility.

Optimal video resolution
You get optimal 1600 x 1280 resolution for analog VGA, SVGA, and XGA when you connect a user station to the ServSelect III with a 10-foot (3-m) cable. But keep in mind that the longer the cable, the lower the resolution. For example, resolution is a maximum of 800 x 600 when the connection is 50 feet (15.2 m).

Although the system adjusts automatically to the optimal video parameters, you can fine-tune the image manually and set refresh and frame rates. The ServSelect III supports Display Data Channel (DDC) Plug-and-Play, which autoconfigures the monitor and is compliant with the VESA DDC2B standard.

The genius of ServSelect III Cables
Make connections to individual servers with nonflashable ServSelect III Cables (sold separately). These CAT5 cables provide keyboard, video, and mouse connectivity. Simply connect a cable's RJ-45 end to your ServSelect III and the other end to your server.

Mulitplatform connectivity
To connect VT100(tm), PS/2, USB, or Sun® servers more than 15 feet (4.5 m) from your ServSelect III, order our ServSelect Server Access Modules (SAMs) (sold separately). Powered by their connected servers, the modules "keep alive" even if the ServSelect III loses its power. Order one for each switch-to-CPU connection.
