Get maximum distance and convenience out of your network installation while saving money with Tripp Lite's B078-101-USB Server Interface Module. The B078-101-USB connects to a server's USB and HD15 ports and converts them to a single Cat5e/6 cable output, allowing the server to connect to one of Tripp Lite's B070/B072-series KVM switches. By using low-cost Cat5e/6 cable, the B078-101-USB eliminates the need for bulky KVM cables, providing you greater flexibility and distance for necessary cable runs. The unit allows up to 100 ft. between your server and KVM switch and features a compact, lightweight design, which saves space and de-clutters your network application. With no software or external power supply needed, the B078-101-USB is completely plug-and-play out of the box, leading to easy installation and quick application deployment.

Convenient, Cost-Effective Solution for Your Network Connection Needs

With Tripp Lite's B078-101-USB, traditional, thick KVM cables are a thing of the past. By using cost-effective Cat5e/6 cabling, the B078-101-USB frees up space in your server cabinet and allows for increased ventilation, longer cable runs and greater savings. This server interface module is needed to connect a USB server to Tripp Lite's B070/B072-series KVM switches.

Greater Distance—Greater Flexibility

Using Cat5e/6 cabling allows for your server to be located up to 100 feet away from the KVM switch that controls it. By eliminating bulkier KVM cables, the B078-101-USB also allows for cabling to run through conduits and other tight spaces, guaranteeing maximum flexibility when setting up your network application.

Plug-and-Play Convenience

With the B078-101-USB, there is no software or external power needed. Simply plug the USB and HD15 connectors into the server to be controlled, run the Cat5e/6 cabling to your KVM and you're ready to go. The unit connects a server or computer with an HD15 connector for video and USB type connectors for mouse and keyboard control to a KVM switch with Cat5e/6 (RJ45) connectors.

Innovative, Compact Design

The B078-101-USB's compact, lightweight design allows for flexibility when connecting it to a server or computer. The unit's form factor allows it to fit in tight spaces and to free up space where traditional KVM cabling might limit ventilation and accessibility. The B078-101-USB is also environmentally responsible by maintaining RoHS compliance in its design and manufacture.

Peace of Mind

The B078-101-USB comes with a 1-year warranty.
