The KH2508A KVM switch is a control unit that allows IT administrators to access and control multiple computers from two PS/2 or USB KVM consoles (one bus). Operators working at up to two consoles can independently and simultaneously take control of up to 8 computers. By daisy chaining up to 15 additional switches, as many as 128 computers can be controlled from the original KVM consoles. This switch has been designed with unique and powerful features that enable administrators to manage their entire server room and data center devices easily and conveniently.

For example, the advanced Adapter ID feature stores the Adapter Cable's configuration information – such as its ID, port name, OS, keyboard language, etc. This feature allows administrators to relocate servers to different ports without having to reconfigure the adapters . Other advances found with these switches includes enhanced video quality – extending the distance to the servers to up to 50 m at a resolution of 1280 x 1024.*With KVM Adapter Cable KA7000 series.

A KH2508A installation provides one of the best, and most economical, solutions ATEN offers to the SMB market. There is no better way to save time, space, and money than with a KH2508A KVM switch.
