  • Cascade configuration expands system capability up to 512 computers

StarTech.com's 16 port Cat5 KVM switch lets you manage all of your computers from one convenient location over UTP (Cat5) cable, using only one keyboard, mouse, and monitor.

In place of more “traditional” KVM switches which use DB15 cable to connect slave computers to the switch, this Cat5 KVM switch utilizes Category 5 UTP cable to link the computers, reducing cable clutter and extending the available connection distance to up to 130ft (39.6m).

To ensure simple and convenient operation, the KVM Switch features both pushbutton and hot-key commands and offers manual and automatic scan modes that provide hassle-free monitoring of computer connection status.

This Cat5 KVM switch is cascadable, allowing multiple Cat5 KVM units to be linked together for control of up to 512 computers from a single KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) peripheral set - providing a scalable control platform that can grow to accommodate your needs.

For simple integration into any server room or data center, this 16 port Cat 5 KVM switch can be rack mounted, and requires only 1U of cabinet storage space.

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.
