32-Port Cat 5 Expansion Matrix KVM Switch with Daisy-Chain Port
ATEN Matrix KVM Switches are designed for modern data centers that require reliable, high security access and control of multiple servers. With nonblocked access and flexible expansion support, Matrix KVM switches offer high quality video sessions for secure, real-time control of your entire data
center devices.
With automatic skew compensation and Auto Signal Compensation (ASC) techniques, Matrix KVM switches provide greatly enhanced video quality
via Cat 5e/6 cabling - 1280x1024 @60Hz for up to 300 meters. The industry’s first full screen Graphical User Interface offers a tree view list of
installed devices - providing smooth navigation and convenient access and control - not only saving on training time and costs; but increasing user
efficiency, as well.
Up to 7 Matrix Expansion KVM switches can be daisy chained from a master switch (KM0932/KM0532)
Audio support for multimedia-capable devices
Redundant power supply for 24 x 7 reliability
Multiplatform support: PC, Mac, Sun, and Serial Console access - any type of console can control any type of computer; mixed combinations
(PS/2 & USB) supported on both the console and computer sides
Compact design - rack mounts in only 1U of rack space
Ease-to-Use Interface
Full screen graphical user interface - saves on training time and costs - increases user efficiency
Embedded web interface for easy system configuration and management
Composite tree view - all connected devices are integrated in a single device tree for convenient management access and control
The port list automatically expands when stations are added - port names are automatically reconfigured when the station sequence changes
Multilingual user interface support - English, German, Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Russian
Simplified OSD Mode sets limited functionality for all user type accounts NEW!
Convenient Port Operation
Computer selection via GUI or intuitive hotkey combinations
Port level access control - users can only access the ports they have been authorized for - whether in a single-station or multi-stage installation
Console Selector allows setup of forced console to port connections for easy viewing and operation of computers
Push Video Hotkey allows a user to push their console’s port connection to another console for viewing or operating
Users can access features on multiple computers simultaneously – a user can be working and listening to music on computer 1 while utilizing
virtual media on computer 2 at the same time
MultiView supports grouping for single port access to a computer connected to multiple ports utilizing multiple video cards NEW!
Multicast Audio gives multiple console access to the same KVM port – allowing both to listen to the audio being broadcast by that port
Versatile port operation modes for flexible server management:
• Scan – provides automatic monitoring of user-selected computers
• Exclusive – allows the first user to access a port to gain exclusive viewing rights and control over it for as long as he accesses it
• Occupy – allows the first user to access a port to control that port while others can only view it
• Share – allows multiple users to access and control a port at the same time on a cooperative basis
Broadcast support enables executing the same command on multiple servers at the same time
Disable Toolbar function – disables Toolbar from showing on the screen when the toolbar hotkey is used, instantly returning user to the GUI
Supports up to 1024 user and 255 group accounts
Three level password security: Super Administrator, Administrator, User
Stringent password policy features that include password expiration; required password changes, account disabling, and account expiration.
Disable OSD Mode allows non-authenticated logins NEW!
Disable RS-232 Login Mode allows non-authenticated serial terminal logins NEW!
Intelligent Path Assignment – a master station can allocate the best available path for the user under multi-path cascading and daisy-chaining
Power Over the NET™ integration for power control
Power Association enables the switch’s KVM ports to be associated with a PDU´s power outlets for remote power management of the servers
from the switch’s interface
RS-232 port login support permits an administrator to control the KVM port access for all consoles connected to switch – any console can be
assigned to access any KVM port from a single interface point
Session Management – a Kill Session function provides administrators with the ability to force user logouts
Backup and restore of configuration settings and user account information
Firmware upgrades can be performed simultaneously on all daisy chained and cascaded slave switches as well as connected adapter cables
Adapter ID – adapter cable’s configuration information is stored with the adapter – no need to reconfigure the adapter when moving a server to
a new port
Remote authentication supports; RADIUS, LDAP, TACACS, LDAPS, and MS Active Director
Supports ATEN Log Server and Syslog Server
Virtual Media
Virtual Media support lets you map storage media to servers that are connected to the switch allowing operators to conduct file transfers, install
applications and OS patches, and perform diagnostics from a single console
Works with USB enabled servers at the operating system and BIOS levels
Supports DVD/CD drives, USB mass storage devices
Supports mounting Smart Card Readers and Virtual Media at the same time, on computers connected with KA7177 Adapter Cables NEW!
User’s display automatically adjusts to resolution differences on the remote servers
Superior video quality – 1280 x 1024 @ 60 Hz for up to 300 m
Get and store EDID monitor information for updates on KVM adapters for optimum display resolutions
Auto Signal Compensation (ASC) assures optimum video resolution for distances up to 300 m between computers and consoles – no DIP
switch setting required
Enhanced video quality via automatic skew compensation support for the KA7240 console module, and the newer KVM adapter cable series*
