The B020-016-17-IP Console KVM Switch with built-in IP access allows secure access to multiple computers from a single keyboard, monitor and mouse. It consists of an integrated 16-Port IP KVM switch, 17" LCD monitor, keyboard and touchpad, all in a 1U rackmountable housing. A single B020-016-17-IP can control up to 16 directly connected computers. The number of connected computers can be expanded to up to 256 by cascading a second level of B022-U16 KVM switches. The dual-rail LCD and keyboard/touch pad modules slide independently of each other. To maximize space, 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. For Government purchasers, B020-016-17-IP is Compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA) for GSA Schedule purchases. Compatible with all major operating systems. Constructed of heavy-duty steel housing.
