Tripp Lite NetDirector™ 16-Port Rackmount KVM Switch B022-U16
Tripp Lite's B022-U16 NetDirector™ 16-Port Rackmount KVM Switch is the smart solution for controlling multiple servers from one monitor, keyboard and mouse. Requiring just 1U of rack space, the B022-U16 features a rugged housing, premium connectors and superior functionality to ensure trouble-free operation in demanding high-availability environments. The B022-U16 can control sixteen servers/computers directly, or up to 512 by daisy-chaining additional KVM switches. A USB peripheral sharing port permits connected computers to share peripherals such as flash drives. The B022-U16 is compatible with both PS/2 and USB computers using the included KVM cable kits.
All-in-One Network Management for Critical Systems
The 16-port B022-U16 offers a comprehensive, cost-effective network management solution that installs in 1U of rack space. 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 B022-U16 supports both PS/2 and USB connections (required cabling included). 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 B022-U16 is designed to ease multi-server management in data centers, server rooms and other high-density environments. An advanced on screen display (OSD) with high-resolution QXGA video up to 2048 x 1536 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 port selection pushbuttons or keyboard hotkey commands. The port selection pushbuttons illuminate to indicate (1) when a computer is connected to a KVM port and powered on, and (2) when a computer is selected.
Control Hundreds of Servers
The B022-U16 is capable of controlling up to 512 servers/computers by daisy-chaining up to 31 additional units (B022-U16 or B022-016). This gives network managers the flexibility to add capacity when it's needed, accommodating growing data center requirements without disrupting existing equipment.
Share Peripheral Devices
The B022-U16 features a USB 1.1 port on the front panel for connection of a USB peripheral such as a flash drive, external hard drive or printer. Peripherals connected to this port can be shared among all connected computers.
Secure Every Connection
The B022-U16 offers two levels of password protection (administrator/user) to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to connected servers/computers. One administrator account and up to four user accounts can be created.
Access Servers Anywhere with Optional IP Remote Access Capability
The B022-U16 accepts an optional IP remote access unit (Tripp Lite model B051-000) that 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 and equipment reboots from any location using a standard Web browser or multi-platform client software.
Peace of Mind
The B022-U16 is manufactured in compliance with strict RoHS specifications, reflecting Tripp Lite's commitment to environmental responsibility. For peace of mind, it comes backed by a one-year warranty.
