The GCS1716KITUTAA KVM is a TAA compliant combo switch, allowing access and control of up to 16 directly connected computers from a single console (keyboard, mouse, and monitor). As many as 16 additional switches can be cascaded bringing the total number of connected computers to 256 computers that can be controlled from a single keyboard-monitor-mouse console. A custom ASIC (patent pending) provides an auto-sensing function that recognizes the position of each station on the installation, eliminating the need to manually set the position with DIP switches. Additionally, the GCS1716KITUTAA features high density SPHD 15-pin instead of the usual 25-pin connectors thus allowing for a compact design and installation in a 1U system rack.
The GCS1716KITUTAA includes one USB port located on the front panel for easy access and sharing of any USB peripherals. Setup is fast and easy, plugging cables into their appropriate ports is all that is needed. The switch supports both USB and PS/2 connections for the console and
