RackView Switch allows you to conveniently access multiple computers from a single KVM pullout rack drawer. The KVM switch is mounted behind the rack drawer, which conserves space. Switching the computer port is conveniently controlled from dedicated push-button switches mounted directly at the keyboard. LEDs show which port is selected and whether a computer is powered up. Switching to a computer also can be controlled with hot-key commands.

The package comes with a full set of cables:

  • 8 DVI video cables
  • 8 USB A-B cables
  • 1 power cord

To install RackView Switch, screw the provided adjustable mounting rails to your standard 19" rack. Slide the unit into the mounted brackets and secure it. One person can easily install the RackView Switch in a rack. RackView has an automatic off feature where closing the lid engages a micro-switch that puts the RackView into standby mode. This saves power while instantly making the console available when needed. You can also switch audio too. Speakers installed in the rack console are available as an option or use your own.

This RackView model is also available without the KVM switch for those installations where direct dedicated connection to a computer is desired or where external KVM switches are used. Operating RackView Switch is very smooth. The benefit of accessing your computers so quickly and easily boosts productivity and makes the investment well worth it.
