8-Port USB PS/2 Combo VGA KVMP with USB KVM Cable Sets

IOGEAR's GCS1808KITU KVMP is a combo USB and PS/2 switch allowing access and control of up to 128* computers from a single console with complete set of USB KVM Cable to ease with installation process. Cascade as many as 8 additional switches to bring the total number of connected computers to 64 computers that can be controlled from a single keyboard-monitor-mouse console. A custom ASIC (patent pending) provides an auto-sensing function that recognizes the position of each station on the installation, eliminating the need to manually set the position with DIP switches. Additionally, the GCS1808KITU features high density SPHD 15-pin instead of the usual 25-pin connectors thus allowing for a compact design and installation in a 1U system rack.

Expanded Peripheral Sharing

The GCS1808KITU includes one USB port located on the front panel for easy access for system upgrades and shared peripherals. Setup is fast and easy; plugging cables into their appropriate ports is all that is needed. The switch supports both USB and PS/2 connections for the console and computers. The GCS1808KITU intercepts keyboard input directly, thus eliminating the need for any software configuration.

Convenient Switching Methods

Switching between computers can be easily accomplished either by manually pressing the front panel push button port LEDs, entering hotkey combinations from the keyboard, or via a menu driven multilingual On-Screen Display (OSD) system. A convenient auto-scan feature permits automatic scanning and monitoring of activities on all connected.
