Since there are no bulky KVM cables to deal with, the ServSwitch CX enables up to four users to connect to the switch via CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6 UTP cable. In addition, you can mix and match different kinds of servers on the same CX switch if you run CATx cables from the switch’s server ports to the Server Access Modules (SAMs, available separately) that connect to your servers. You can connect the ServSwitch CX to either a PS/2 or USB keyboard and mouse both connector types are supported.
Whether you are working at a user station or the local analog console port in the server room, you can select a server to access and control via on-screen menus or hotkeys. On-screen menus make server selection simple because you can give each server a name that makes sense to you.
The ServSwitch CX provides super-sharp resolutions up to 1900 x 1440 for all users up to 164 feet (50 m) away. And at up to 984.2 feet (300 m) away, the CX displays 1280 x 1024 video resolution. By choosing a SAM with audio, you add support for stereo speakers, enabling you to hear audible alerts.
The ServSwitch CX has a power control port that enables a remote user to reset one or more power switches in the host system. Plus, dual power connectors enable the ServSwitch CX to draw power from its included wallmount adapter or from an optional redundant power supply if there’s a power failure.
The ServSwitch CX comes complete with rackmounting hardware to install the switch in any open 1U of rack space in your server room. The switch can also be flash upgraded, so it is obsolescence-proof.
