BlackBox ServSwitch 24 port KVM

  • Description
  • Features
  • Specification

Up to 4 users can access and control 16 or 24 multiplatform servers connected via CATx cable or via optional IP connectivity.

Easier connections than ever!
There are no bulky KVM cables to deal with — the ServSwitch CX KVM Switch enables up to four users to connect to the switch via CAT5, CAT5e or CAT6 UTP cable. In addition, you can mix and match different kinds of servers on the same CX KVM switch! Just run CATx cables from the switch's server ports to the Server Access Modules (SAMs) that connect to your servers. Simply choose the appropriate SAM for each server and you're all set.

What's more, you can connect the ServSwitch CX to either a PS/2 or USB keyboard and mouse — it includes both connector types!

Simple server selection
Whether you're working at a user station or the local analogue console port in the server room, you can select a server to access and control via on-screen menus or hot keys. On-screen menus make server selection simple because you can give each server a name that makes sense to you.

Sight and sound support
The ServSwitch CX KVM Switch provides super-sharp resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 x 60 Hz for all users up to 50 metres away. And at up to 300 metres away, the CX displays 1024 x 1280 video resolution.

By choosing a SAM with audio, you add support for stereo speakers, enabling you to hear audible alerts.

The next best thing to being there
Models with optional IP connectivity enable you to access and switch remotely between servers over a private intranet or over the Internet. All you need is a Java enabled Web browser. Password security keeps out unauthorised users.

Take charge with your power
The ServSwitch CX KVM Switch has a power control port that enables a remote user to rest one or more power switches in the host system. Plus, dual power connectors enable the CX to draw power from its included wallmount adapter or from a redundant power supply if there's a power failure.

Ready right now — and future-proof
The ServSwitch CX come complete with rackmounting hardware to install the switch in any open 1U of rack space in your server room. The switch can also be flash upgraded, so it's future-proof.
