Product Overview
Main Features
  • ServSwitch Octet Dual RJ-45 Server Access Modules (SAMs) with Audio/Serial RS-232 Support for USB
  • up to 980 ft
The SAMs, matchbox-size molded units with a pigtail cable attached, don't require any rack space and draw their power from the attached server. This ensures keep-alive functionality, providing keyboard and mouse emulation to the server at any time, and they're independent of the switching system's status.

SAMs have unique ID addresses, too. As soon as a SAM is connected to the ServSwitch Octet switch, the SAM's address appears on the CPU channel list within the connected User Station's on-screen menu. From this menu, the SAM can be operated by an administrator. This plug-and-play simplicity reduces installation time tremendously.

Users can name a SAM's numeric ID through the User Station's on-screen menu. It's stored in the SAM's nonvolatile flash memory. If you disconnect a SAM from the server and move it to a different location later, its name instantly disappears from the list. Once you plug it back into any of the switch's CPU ports, the SAM is recognized again by the system automatically without any additional reconfiguration. You can also connect a SAM right to a User Station to provide direct access to the server without interrupting the emulation.

The Dual RJ-45 SAMs add even more value to your ServSwitch Octet system. They act as 1 x 2 KVM splitters and enable two users to share access to one CPU. They also provide redundant system setup, eliminating single point-of-failure risks.

Additionally, they transfer stereo audio to the user station and mono audio back to the attached CPU. Plus, their RS-232 interface enables transparent serial transmission and switching up to 38.4 kbps.
