Cat5 Dual Rail 19" LCD 16-port KVM Switch
Aten's new KL1516 LCD slide away KVM provides a compact solution to working in cramped server
rooms. It has a unique dual rail configuration so the LCD monitor slides independently of the
keyboard, which allows the keyboard to be conveniently stowed out of the way, while the LCD
monitor stands vertically flat against the rack for monitoring purposes, thus keeping your aisle
 The use of common Cat- 5 cable to connect the 1U KVM to your servers serves a two fold
purpose, first cable length is no longer an issue, simply make it as long as you like (up to 130 ft)
and secondly, although the computer ports panel is a high density configuration, it's still easy to
add new devices, or reconfigure your existing set up.
 The unit comes with your choice of a 17 or 19 inch monitor, and a standard 105 keyboard with
touch pad. The KVM includes a standard PS/2 mouse port (For user's who don't like touch pads),
and an additional console port for connecting an extender to remotely control your servers.
 The KL1516 supports video resolutions up to 1280 x 1024 (60Hz) at 130ft from the servers.
Both units fit into a 1U 19" System Rack, with the included standard rack mount kit [an optional
Easy Rack Mount (single person installation) kit is available for separate purchase]
