  • A dependable 3-year warranty provides peace of mind
  • Unique cables for secured connection
  • Rugged, all-metal 1U chassis for use in harsh environments and space-saving cabinets; rack mountable

This 8 Port USB KVM Switch allows you to control up to 8 USB or PS/2 computers using only one keyboard, mouse and monitor, and features an Audio and Microphone port for each connected computer - allowing you to switch between audio signals as well as between PC ports.

To maximize the number of computers that can be controlled from a single point, the USB KVM switch is cascadable - allowing multiple units to be connected (cascaded) together for control of up to 64 computers, ensuring a scalable KVM solution that can be expanded as necessary.

To ensure seamless operation, the switch features automatic and manual scan modes, and makes switching between computers as easy as entering the defined hot-key command, or pressing the corresponding front panel push-button. To make configuring and monitoring connections easier, the switch also features a convenient OSD (on-screen display).

Based on a slim form factor design that requires only 1U of storage space, this 8 Port USB KVM Switch uses rear cable connections to maximize space efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

Monitors may begin flickering when they receive a signal of insufficient quality. There are a few potential fixes available that will help to improve the signal quality in order to eliminate flickering:

  • Replace Video Cables with high-quality Video Cables (e.g. upgrade DisplayPort 1.2 Cables to DisplayPort 1.4 Cables).
  • Use shorter Video Cables to reduce signal attenuation.
  • When possible, remove Video Adapters to use native Video Connection Types (e.g. go from VGA to VGA, or DisplayPort to DisplayPort)
  • For DisplayPort Monitors, try changing the DisplayPort Version on the Monitor. For information on how to change your Monitor Settings refer to the Manual from the Monitor Manufacturer.
  • Update the Drivers for the Computer’s GPU to the latest available from the Monitor Manufacturer.
