  • Rackmountable for easy access while working
  • Double Diamond Protection
  • Supports PS/2 keyboards and mice, and works with low-cost PS/2 cable

 

These two-user switches come with a pair of analog port-sets to accommodate two monitors and a pair of PS/2 keyboards and mice. Both users can control, switch between, troubleshoot, and reboot all connected servers and other ServSwitch units.

The Convenient and intuitive on-screen menus enable you to configure your system and select servers and other switches. You can easily identify each server by a unique name, ID number, or port number.

Three operational modes enable you to manage your switching activities. In Scan mode, the ServSelect III sequentially displays the status of up to 16 servers on-screen. You can select which servers are scanned in a sequence and how many seconds each should be displayed. In Broadcast mode, you can simultaneously control more than one server to ensure that all selected servers receive the same input. Lastly, in the Switch mode, either user can select and share any server at any time.

This KVM switch is equipped with robust features that keep your system running and secure. The BIOS-level access ensures connection to the attached servers, regardless of the servers' health or their operating system. Furthermore, the ServSelect III's keep-alive safeguard allow the attached servers to continue functioning even if the switch has a power failure.

You can also protect your system with a screen-saver password for each user. When a user station is unused for a period of time, the monitor enters a screen-saving mode and can only be unlocked by typing a password.

Since the ServSelect III is also flash upgradable, it's built for your system's future. You can upgrade your firmware at any time by using the switch's simple update utility.

With the ServSelect III you get optimal video resolution. 1600 x 1280 resolution for analog VGA, SVGA, and XGA when you connect a user station to the ServSelect III with a 10-foot (3.0-m) cable. Always remeber that the longer the cable you use, the lower the resolution will be.

You can fine-tune the image manually and set refresh and frame rates, even though the system adjusts automatically to the optimal video parameters. The ServSelect III supports Display Data Channel (DDC) Plug-and-Play, which auto-configures the monitor and is compliant with the VESA DDC2B standard.

When you use non-flashable ServSelect III cables you can make connections to individual servers. These CAT5 cables provide keyboard, video, and mouse connectivity. Simply connect a cable's RJ-45 end to your ServSelect III and the other end to your server.
