Tripp Lite's B040-008-19 NetController™ 8-Port VGA Rackmount Console KVM Switch is the smart solution for controlling multiple computers and servers in IT applications. It combines a keyboard, touchpad, 19-in. color LCD and 8-port KVM switch in a 1U, heavy-duty steel rack drawer for compact storage and easy access without compromising control over connected servers. The heavy-duty steel enclosure, high-quality LCD, premium connectors and uncomplicated controls ensure trouble-free operation in demanding high-availability environments. The B040-008-19 can control eight servers/computers directly, or up to 248 by daisy-chaining additional KVM switches. It is compatible with both PS/2 and USB computers using Tripp Lite P780-Series combo KVM cable kits (available separately), and accepts connection of an IP remote access unit for access to servers/computers via LAN, WAN or Internet.

All-in-One Network Management for Critical Systems

All-in-One Network Management for Critical Systems

The B040-008-19 offers a complete network management solution. It combines an 8-port KVM switch, keyboard, touch pad, numeric keypad and 19-in. LCD in compact 1U housing suitable for installation in racks from 29 to 42 inches deep. The B040-008-19 stores neatly in a rack drawer and pulls out when needed. No server-resident software is required, so server performance and reliability are never compromised. Hot pluggable functionality enables servers or computers to be added or removed with no need to power down the KVM switch or disrupt the entire system. Upgradable firmware fine-tunes compatibility with emerging standards.

Supports Multiple Platforms

The B040-008-19 supports both PS/2 and USB connections (Tripp Lite P780-Series combo KVM cable kits required; sold separately). Because compatibility is based on common hardware standards rather than system software dependencies, almost any platform can be accommodated. Connect multiple versions of multiple platforms in any combination, including Windows®, Mac®, Linux and Sun.

Simple, Flexible Network Control

The B040-008-19 is designed to ease multi-server management in data centers, server rooms and other high-density environments. BIOS-level access allows network administrators to solve complex problems efficiently and restore service before downtime affects productivity. An advanced on screen display (OSD) with high-resolution VGA video up to 1280 x 1024 provides a graphical user interface with management tools including custom port labeling, auto-scanning and panel array mode. Users may also select a connected computer using on-console pushbuttons or keyboard hotkey commands. Two LEDs per KVM port indicate (1) when a computer is connected to a KVM port and powered on, and (2) when a computer is selected.

B040-008-19 Feature Focus

Control Multiple Computers

The B040-008-19 is capable of controlling up to 248 servers/computers by daisy-chaining additional KVMs (Tripp Lite models B042-008 or B042-016). This gives network managers the flexibility to add capacity when it's needed, accommodating growing data center requirements without disrupting existing equipment.

Access Servers Anywhere with Optional IP Remote Access Capability

With the addition of an optional IP remote access unit (Tripp Lite model B051-000, sold separately), the B040-008-19 provides secure IP remote access to connected servers/computers without requiring additional rack space. IP remote access enables system administration, BIOS-level troubleshooting, GUI application installations, equipment reboots and more to be accomplished from any location using a standard Web browser or multi-platform client software. A modem port provides optional out-of-band dial-up access to equipment when the network or Internet connection goes down. The B051-000 also supports USB virtual media access.

Secure Every Connection

The B040-008-19 offers two levels of password protection (administrator/user) to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to connected servers/computers. IP remote access (if provided by the optional IP remote access unit) is further protected with security features including password protection, advanced encryption, bandwidth-optimized video and detailed activity logging.

Peace of Mind

The B040-008-19 comes with a 1-year warranty.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Works as advertised. I love the slide out rails very smooth. The case is deep but our rack is deep enough to handle it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: One kink is the special KVM cable has a PS2 mouse port and a usb end. IF you plug both into the computer the kvm trackpad will not work.

Just plug in the monitor and usb cable only and it works great!

3 out of 5 eggsNice KVM But

Pros: Nice layout. No dead pixels in the monitor

Cons: Major Problem! Tripplite stuff requires special cables (not just any old KVM cables) and not just any old Tripplite cable. You have to buy a custom cable for this unit (none are included). They go for about 15$ for a 6ft cable if you can find them. Tripplite doesn't have them in stock nor does newegg.

Other Thoughts: I think a 1600 KVM should come with cables. Especially if they are proprietary. Other than that it seems nice. It is very deep so may stick out the back of your rack which means you have to buy another add on (2 post adaptor).
