Tripp Lite’s B020-016-17-IP KVM Switch gives you a rack-mountable keyboard, LCD and touchpad in a single console that occupies only 1U of rack space. From across the room, down the street or halfway around the globe, the B020-016-17-IP can be accessed from any computer on the LAN, WAN or Internet. Easy to install and use, it’s the optimal solution for controlling up to 16 computers/servers.

The B020-016-17-IP has a built-in 17” LCD screen that supports video resolutions up to 1280 x 1024 and remote monitor resolutions up to 1600 x 1200. You can switch easily between the 16 ports using on-console push buttons, an on-screen display (OSD) or keyboard hot key commands. Up to 64 users can be authorized and 32 remote users can be logged on concurrently when multi-user operation is enabled, with multi-level password security. RADIUS server authentication is supported.

This switch controls PS/2 or USB computers/servers using a P774-Series (PS/2) or P776-Series (USB) KVM Cable Kit (one of each is included). When not in use, the B020-016-17-IP stores neatly in a rack drawer and pulls out when needed. With its dual-rail design, you can slide the keyboard into the rack, while the monitor stays visible. This KVM console is compatible with all major operating systems. Heavy-duty steel housing stands up to frequent use. Complies with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA) for GSA Schedule purchases.
