Tripp Lite, a company that makes power protection equipment, has rolled out seven new KVM switches for controlling up to 512 personal computers or servers with a single keyboard, video-monitor, and mouse (“KVM”) console.
The switches support multiple operating systems, are self-powered (at least most models are), and have individual port selection buttons to let you choose a connected computer with one click. Status LEDs dedicated to each port eliminate the need to check the back of the switch to verify connection.
Tripp Lite KVM Switches also sport gold-plated connectors and an SVGA cable in all its cable kit. There are seven models: 2-port (B005-002-R) and 4-port (B005-004-R) PS/2 desktop models; a 4-port USB desktop model with on-screen display (B007-004-R) and one without (B006-004-R); a 1U PS/2-AT rackmount model with audio control (B005-008) and one without (B007-008); and a 1U SUN rackmount model (B008-008). And you can choose from a variety of adapters to control a mixed installation of Mac, USB, SUN or AT systems.
