Hardware Installation
Standard Rack Mounting:
A standard rack mounting kit is provided with your GCL1908 / GCL1916 and can be mounted
in 1U of rack space. The following diagram shows the required components to mount the LCD
KVM to the rack.
Note: It takes two people to mount the switch: one to hold it in place; the other to screw it in.
L Brackets
Side Mountng
Brackets
Step 1
While one person positions the switch in the rack and holds it in place, the second person
loosely screws the front brackets to the rack.

Step 2
While the first person still holds the switch in place, the second person slides the L brackets
into the switch’s side mounting brackets from the rear until the bracket flanges contact the
rack, then screw the L brackets to the rack.
Final Step
After the L brackets have been secured, tighten the front bracket screws.
Grounding
Use a grounding wire to ground the GCL1908 / GCL1916 by connecting one end of the wire
to the grounding terminal, and the other end of the wire to a suitable grounded object.

Opening the Console
The GCL1908 / GCL1916's console is located under the top cover. To access the console,

port, create or edit a port name, or make OSD setting adjustments.

OSD was closed last time.
3. Only the ports that have been set accessible by the administrator for the user currently
