Chapter 1: Important Safeguards
Safety Instructions
vi

Unplug equipment before cleaning. Don't use liquid or spray
detergent; use a moist cloth.

Keep equipment away from excessive humidity and heat. Preferably,
keep it in an air-conditioned environment with temperatures not
exceeding 40º Celsius (104º Fahrenheit).

When installing, place the equipment on a sturdy, level surface to
prevent it from accidentally falling and causing damage to other
equipment or injury to persons nearby.

When the LCD console is in an open position, do not cover, block or
in any way obstruct the gap between it and the power supply. Proper
air convection is necessary to keep it from overheating.

Arrange the equipment's power cord in such a way that others won't
trip or fall over it.

If you are using a power cord that didn't ship with the equipment,
ensure that it is rated for the voltage and current labeled on the
equipment's electrical ratings label. The voltage rating on the cord
should be higher than the one listed on the equipment's ratings label.

Observe all precautions and warnings attached to the equipment.

If you don't intend to use the equipment for a long time, disconnect it
from the power outlet to prevent being damaged by transient overvoltage.

Keep all liquids away from the equipment to minimize the risk of
accidental spillage. Liquid spilled on to the power supply or on other
hardware may cause damage, fire or electrical shock.

Only qualified service personnel should open the chassis. Opening it
yourself could irreparably damage the equipment and invalidate its
warranty.

If any part of the equipment becomes damaged or stops functioning,
have it checked by qualified service personnel.

Chapter 2: Installation
Connecting a Server or KVM Switch
The LED KVM Console can be connected to either a KVM
(keyboard/video/mouse) switch or a server.
Always use the Raritan-provided KVM combo cable to make the
connection.
A DVI cable is also required if the server's video port is a DVI port or if
you prefer using the DVI port.
Connection to a KVM Switch
You can make a connection to any KVM Switch via a USB or PS/2
connection as illustrated below.
Then use Raritan's LED KVM Console to access the KVM Switch and
the equipment connected to the KVM Switch.
Do NOT connect both USB and PS/2 connectors to the KVM switch
simultaneously.
If connecting Raritan's MCCAT28/216 KVM Switch, the LED KVM
Console only supports the PS/2 connection.
Warning: Raritan's MasterConsole II (MCC) KVM switch is NOT
supported so do not connect any MCC device to it.

button to switch between different video sources.
Connecting an External USB Device (Optional)
The LED KVM Console provides an additional USB interface that
functions as the extension of the USB-A interface of the server
connected to it, therefore facilitating the use of an external USB device
with the server, such as a USB keyboard, mouse or a USB disk.
This additional USB interface comprises a USB-B port on the rear panel
of the LED KVM Console and a USB-A port on the front panel. The USB
connection between the server and the LED KVM Console is required in
order to use this USB interface.
To connect an external USB device:
1. Use a regular USB-A to USB-B cable to connect the LED KVM
Console and the server.
a. Plug the USB-A connector into one of the available USB-A ports
on the server.
b. Plug the USB-B connector into the USB-B port on the rear side
of the LED KVM Console.
Note: Raritan does not provide the USB-A to USB-B cable.
10
Chapter 2: Installation
2. Connect any USB device to the front panel USB-A port of the LED
KVM Console.
Now the server should detect the connection of this external USB device.
If necessary, install the driver for the detected USB device.
