The MasterConsole Z replaces the traditional KVM switch box with an innovative, server-to-server daisy-chain arrangement, significantly reducing cable clutter. Small Computer Interface Modules (MZCIMs), connected to the keyboard, video and mouse ports of each server, are linked with standard Category 5e UTP cable and transmit keyboard, video and mouse signals to a user station. A keyboard, video and mouse plug into the user station, enabling you to select and control up to 64 servers via simple on-screen menus.
The Raritan Computer Interface Module for the MasterConsole Z (MZCIM) allows you to access and manage up to 64 servers connected through a daisy-chain of interface modules, one plugged into each target device. The system will work with a mixture of servers having PS/2, USB and Sun interfaces. This unique design manages a switchless KVM solution that previously took several platform-specific switches. It uses Cat5e cabling for KVM signaling between the MZCIMs and from the modules to a single user console.
The daisy-chain can be extended, with additional MZCIMs, up to 700 feet end to end. This makes it the logical choice in small to medium-sized data centers, where system administrators work in separate rooms from the servers themselves. The MZCIMs plug into the keyboard, video and mouse ports of each server using Raritan's unique DirectConnect technology.
This package is the MasterConsole Z User Station (MZUST) with (6) MZCIM USB units.
