Tripp Lite's 8-port console KVM switch with 17" LCD is the optimal solution for controlling multiple computers from one keyboard, mouse and monitor. This single unit combines an 8 port KVM switch, keyboard, 17" LCD monitor and touchpad; all in a mere 1U of rack space. Stores neatly in the rack, pulls out when needed. Control up to 504 computers from this single console by daisy-chaining additional B022-016 or B022-U16 16 port KVM switches. Easily switch ports using the On-Console push buttons, On Screen Display (OSD) or keyboard hot key commands. Control PS/2 or USB computers/servers using P774-Series (PS/2) and P776-Series (USB) KVM Cable kits. Includes an extra HD15 and (2) PS/2 ports on the rear of the unit, which allows for connection of a Tripp Lite B051-000 IP Remote Access Unit or an external console. Compatible with all major operating systems except Mac and Sun. Constructed of heavy-duty steel housing.
