Black Box ServSwitch Console Plus - KVM switch - 8 Product Details

No more switching user stations to access both your servers and serial devices! The ServSwitch Console Plus puts you in complete control. It's a multiplatform, single-user CPU management switch that features built-in async serial support. With the Console Plus, you can streamline your data center or server room and provide a central management station for your system. And because it has an advanced distributed design, it eliminates single points of failure, making the switch extremely reliable. By simply configuring any of the switch's CPU ports as serial ports, you can use the ServSwitch Console Plus to access Ethernet hubs, UNIX devices, and other equipment with serial connections. In effect, the switch acts as a dumb terminal with an eight-page scroll buffer to enable easy monitoring of your serial equipment.

The Console Plus' interface is so powerful that it's actually a color VT220 terminal. When you connect to a serial device, you get a 24 x 80 full-screen display with two status lines. Linux serial ports also display directory lists in color. This multiplatform switch handles PC, Sun, Mac, UNIX, and Linux machines simultaneously. Mix all platforms in a single installation and switch between them. Available in 4-, 8-, and 16-port models, the ServSwitch Console Plus is expandable for connections to as many as 1000 CPUs or servers. To daisychain multiple chassis and create a seamless KVM matrix switch, you simply connect the Console Plus units via an optional Expansion Module.

The Console Plus is easy to install. Connect your PC, Sun, Mac, UNIX, and Linux machines, and keyboard, monitors, and mice with the cables featured. To configure the switch and its security features, simply access its intuitive on-screen pop-up menu system that enables you to name your servers to your liking. Settings are conveniently saved into flash memory.

For maximum versatility, you can set up a Console Plus control station to connect in four modes: View, Share, Control, and Private. You can also configure the switch for multiple security levels. You can either autoassign security settings to a single user station or require each user to log into the switch with a user ID and password. Different users may access the switch, but only one at a time. It's easy to switch, too - just click on the CPU of your choice from the on-screen menu. You can also switch via simple keyboard commands. And there's no need to worry about keyboard and mouse compatibility either. The Console Plus provides full keyboard and mouse emulation.
