Tripp Lite’s B040 Series NetController Rackmount Console KVM switches are a cost effective and highly flexible system for controlling up to 128 computers from a single 19” display console. Available in 8port or 16port, these consoles can be daisy chained with Tripp Lites stand-alone B042 NetController series KVM switches via dedicated daisy-chain ports. Switching between attached servers can be accomplished with on console push buttons, On Screen Display menu, or Hot-Key.

Utilizing Tripp Lites P780 series super slim KVM cables ( not much thicker than a standard Cat5 patch Cable…ordered seperately), KVM cabling is kept to a minimum and extremely manageable. Cables are double duty, attaching to either PS/2 or USB based computers, without purchasing additional adapters. An additional USB port is provided, allowing attachment of an external mouse to be used in lieu of the provided console touch-pad.

The B040 Console KVM switches support a wide variety of software platforms, including: MAC, DOS, Windows 95/98/SE/NT/2000/ME/XP/Server2003/Vista, Linux, Unix, and BSD. Password feature provides additional security to prevent unauthorized access to attached computers. All hardware included for 4-post racking, and designed for easy, one person installation. Fits into any rack from 29” to 42” deep. 2-post rackmounting available using Tripp Lite B109-000, 2-post rackmount kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great space saving solution for home office Moving servers from our office in KY to my home in Austin. Needed to NOT have a ton of monitors in the office so this works out great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of Use Very intuitive to set up and use. Couple of minor issues. Screen was a little too bright. Caused a bit of resolution loss. Had to run CD/Owners Manual to figure out how to change the title per port. Otherwise it's highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and works flawlessly I've had other rackmounted KVM monitor devices from other vendors that I've paid much more for, that didn't work as well as this one. Simple to set-up, just connect the right wires to the devices you want to connect and boom, you're done. I've had absolutely no problems with this device. I would absolutely recommend this device to my colleagues.
