This unique KVM drawer not only gives you a space-saving solution for a crowded server room, but also features an LCD monitor that can be viewed without having to slide out the keyboard/mouse part of the drawer.

It's particularly ideal for cabinet environments where you need to frequently monitor server activity. Just pull out and flip up the LCD panel, close the cabinet door, and view server operation through the glass - all while the drawer containing the keyboard/mouse tray is kept stored out of the way in the cabinet itself.

The ServView KVM Drawer with Separate Drawer for Keyboard/Mouse and LCD is a great choice for any cabinet or rackmount environment where you need server monitoring but want to keep keyboard and mouse functions locked away. That's because the keyboard/mouse tray features a front-access lock for securing it inside the drawer assembly.

Like all ServView solutions, this drawer gives you a more space-efficient replacement for a tabletop KVM station in a server room. By using the drawer, you can get rid of that bulky, antiquated CRT monitor, the full-size keyboard, and the cord-attached mouse. It does this by combining a keyboard, mouse, and monitor with a rugged, 2U-high KVM drawer. Because the keyboard has a three-button mini trackball, you don't need a separate surface for a mousepad.

The flat-screen, matrix TFT LCD panel provides clear video at up to 1280 x 1024 resolution. The LCD part of the drawer comprises a membrane inside an aluminum frame that shields the edge of the LCD screen, its LCD inverter, and its analog-to-digital signal converter board.

A built-in on-screen display (OSD) provides you with a quickly accessible interface for adjusting display settings to your liking. Change brightness, contrast, screen resolution and refresh rates, adjust the input video sampling clock's phase, and more. You can even choose from one of seven languages for OSD operation.

The LCD screen folds into just 2U of space, and the drawer can be mounted at a comfortable working height for you. And because the monitor features a fold-forward design, it enables easy viewing when you're typing on the keyboard or monitoring operation through a closed glass cabinet door.

Outfitted with a rear metal case, the drawer assembly's sturdy design stands up to heavy and repeated use. The drawer has two independent sliding rails, one for the LCD and one for the keyboard/mouse tray. Each part moves in and out on ball-bearing telescopic slides that ensure smooth, quiet operation.

The KVM drawer has a 12-VDC, 5-amp single power adapter and, for maximum energy conservation, offers low-energy standby and suspend modes through VESA Display Power Management Signaling (DPMS). You also get a three-in-one KVM cable for drawer-to-server connections.

Need to control more than a single server? Then add a compatible ServSwitch KVM switch to your application. You can even install a server, a ServSwitch, and a ServView KVM Drawer in the same cabinet or 4-post rack.
