The Aten CL5808N 8-Port 19" Dual Rail LCD Combo KVM Switch is a control unit that allows access to multiple computers from two PS/2 or USB KVM consoles. An extra console port is provided on the rear panel to manage the LCD KVM switch from an optional external console. The built-in 19" LCD monitor and keyboard/touch pad modules slide independently of each other for added versatility. To maximize space in your data center, the keyboard/touch pad module slides back to "hide away" when not in use, while the thin profile LCD monitor rotates back - flush against the rack - allowing convenient monitoring of computer activity.
You can quickly and conveniently switch computer access with station and port selection pushbutton switches located on the keyboard module. Even when the keyboard module is in the retracted position you can still switch access with the Port Up/Port Down pushbuttons located on the monitor module. The CL5808N supports both PS/2 and USB keyboards and mice for the connected computers, and the CL5808N also supports USB peripheral devices to be used with the attached computers. A single CL5808N can control up to 8 computers, and as many as 31 additional compatible KVM switches can be daisy chained together, so that up to 256 computers can all be controlled from a single keyboard, monitor, and mouse console.
