The CL5816 Slideaway™ Dual Rail LCD KVM Switch is a control unit that allows access to multiple computers from two PS/2 or USB KVM consoles. An extra console port is provided on the rear panel to manage the LCD KVM switch from an optional external consoles.
The CL5816 19" LCD monitor and keyboard/touch pad modules slide independently of each other. To maximize space in your data center, the keyboard/touch pad module slides back to "hide away" when not in use, while the thin profile LCD monitor rotates back - flush against the rack - allowing convenient monitoring of computer activity. Quickly and conveniently switch computer access with station and port selection pushbutton switches located on the keyboard module. Even when the keyboard module is in the retracted position you can still switch access with the Port Up/Port Down pushbuttons located on the monitor module.
The CL5808 supports both PS/2 and USB keyboards and mice for the connected computers, and the CL5816 supports USB peripheral devices to be used with the attached computers. A single CL5816 can control up to 16 computers. As many as 31 additional compatible KVM switches can be daisy chained together, so that up to 512 computers can all be controlled from a single keyboard, monitor, and mouse console.
