General Information

Overview

KVM0108A and KVM0116A KVM Switches
The KVM switches allow administrators to access and control multiple servers from a single PS/2 or USB KMM (keyboard, monitor, and mouse) console. There is no software to configure.
SKU Local Connection Remote Connection KVM Ports
KVM0108A 1 0 8
KVM0116A 1 0 16
• An auto-sensing function recognizes the position of each station on the installation, eliminating the need to manually set the position, and a front panel LED displays each station's position.
• Updates are available at www.apc.com. The Firmware Upgrade function performs installation.

Features

• Simple installation and operation: Plug-and-play installation. No software required. Station positions are automatically recognized. Computer selection is done using hotkeys or multi­language On Screen Display (OSD) menus.
• Single console control: Access and control up to 8 (KVM0108A) or 16 (KVM0116A) servers from a single PS/2 or USB KVM (keyboard, monitor, and mouse) console.
• Scalability: Connect up to 31 switches. Control up to 512 servers (KVM0116A) from the KVM console.
• Easy installation: Plug cables into their appropriate ports. No software to configure.
• Hardware independent cross-platform support.
• RJ-45 connectors and cat 5e/6 cabling: The KVM0108A or KVM0116A can be installed in a 1U system rack. Take advantage of internal network wiring in most modern commercial buildings.
• KVM adapter cables connect to servers. Mix PS/2 and USB interfaces connecting the KVM switch to the devices.
• Strong password protection prevents unauthorized access.
• Multiple user accounts: Supports up to 10 user and 1 administrator accounts.
• Effortless upgrades: Simultaneously upgrade all in series KVM switches and server modules.
• Auto scanning and broadcast mode: Auto scanning provides hands-free monitoring of selected devices at variable rates. Broadcast Mode sends commands from the console to all computers. Performs software installation, upgrades, and shutdowns simultaneously.
• Superior video quality: Supports the video resolutions up to 1600x1200@60hz for up to 40 meters, and 1280x1024@75hz for up to 50 meters with the KVM Cable Adapter.
• Hot pluggable: Add or remove components without powering off the KVM switch.
• Server modules (Adapter cables) with ID: The KVM switch automatically recognizes the new KVM Cable Adapter. Device ID and attributes are stored in the adapter cables allowing you to hot-swap port connections without having to reconfigure attributes.

Safety

Read all of these instructions. Save them for future reference. Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the device.
DANGER
HAZARD OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
• Do not use the device near water, Never spill liquid of any kind on the device.
• Unplug the device from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
• The device should be operated from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power available, consult your dealer or local power company.
• To prevent damage to your installation it is important that all devices are properly grounded. The device is equipped with a 3-wire grounding type plug. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to replace the outlet. Do not attempt to defeat the purpose of the grounding-type plug. Always follow local/national wiring codes.
• If an extension cord is used with this device make sure that the total of the ampere ratings of all products used on this cord does not exceed the extension cord ampere rating. Make sure that the total of all products plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed 15 amperes.
• To help protect your system from sudden, transient increases and decreases in electrical power, use a surge suppressor, line conditioner, or uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
• Position system cables and power cables carefully; Be sure that nothing rests on any cables.
• Never push objects of any kind into or through cabinet slots. They may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts resulting in a risk of fire or electrical shock.
• Use the power cord(s) supplied with this package. If it becomes necessary to replace the cords supplied with this package, be sure to use cords of at least the same standard as the ones provided. Contact your dealer for information about power cords
• Do not attempt to service the device yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious injury.

CAUTION
INJURY OR EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
• Do not connect the RJ-11 connector marked “UPGRADE” to a public telecommunication network.
• Before working on the rack, make sure that the stabilizers are secured to the rack, extended to the floor, and that the full weight of the rack rests on the floor. Install front and side stabilizers on a single rack or front stabilizers for joined multiple racks before working on the rack.
• Always load the rack from the bottom up, and load the heaviest item in the rack first.
• Make sure that the rack is level and stable before extending a device from the rack.
• Use caution when pressing the device rail release latches and sliding a device into or out of a rack; the slide rails can pinch your fingers.
• After a device is inserted into the rack, carefully extend the rail into a locking position, and then slide the device into the rack.
• Do not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the rack. The total rack load should not exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit rating.
• Make sure that all equipment used on the rack, including power strips and other electrical connectors, is properly grounded.
• Ensure that proper airflow is provided to devices in the rack.
• Ensure that the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment does not exceed the maximum ambient temperature specified for the equipment by the manufacturer
• Do not step on or stand on any device when servicing other devices in a rack.
• Do not place the device on an unstable surface. If the device falls, serious damage will result.
• Do not block ventilation openings. Overheating of internal components may occur.
• Route the power cord and cables so that they cannot be stepped on or tripped over.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in injury or equipment damage.
