Want the option of using either a PS/2® or USB keyboard and mouse to control a number of PS/2 and USB servers? The new ServSwitch™ EC for PS/2 and USB Servers and PS/2 or USB Consoles makes it all possible.

Perfect for areas where you have a mix of servers and console control devices, this ServSwitch has a rear-panel slide switch that you use to select either PS/2 or USB console mode.

To expand your switching platform to include additional servers—up to 136 in all with the 16-port model—simply cascade units in a master-slave configuration.

Ideal for applications where you have a limited amount of space, the 1U-high ServSwitch EC can be used on the desktop. As an added space-saving feature, the switch requires just one HD15 connector for each server connection. Keyboard, monitor, and mouse circuitry is built into a single connector. (To order the cable for either PS/2 or USB servers, see “Related Products” in the previous window.)

The ServSwitch EC for PS/2 and USB Servers and PS/2 or USB Consoles also has on-screen display (OSD) features for switching between servers and managing server connections. Navigate through the OSD menus using a function key, and use the OSD interface to view each port’s connection status, lock a server from unauthorized access, and even assign server names that are up to 14 characters long. The switch stores all name entries in non-volatile memory.

You can also switch servers by pushing front-panel buttons or by using a sequence of hotkeys on your keyboard. Or let the switch do it automatically for you with its AutoScan function, which enables the ServSwitch EC to scan and switch between servers at an interval determined by you. When AutoScan detects any keyboard or mouse activity, it suspends the scanning until activity stops, then resumes with the next computer in sequence.

With video enhancement technology that ensures superb quality and resolutions up to 1920 x 1440, the ServSwitch EC is DDC2B compatible, so you can use it with the latest digital monitors. What’s more, the switch is operating system independent and transparent to all applications.
