Kvm drawer (keyboard, video, mouse)
The rackmount LCD drawer, also known as the KVM Drawer, revolutionized the computing world. These rackmount KVM drawers feature flip up LCD monitors from 17 to 20 inches, 104-key multi-lingual keyboards, a trackball or touchpad mouse, USB or PS2 compatibility and models designed for either short-depth or standard-depth server racks.
KVM Drawer, also referred to as Rackmount KVM Drawer houses a Keyboard, Mouse and Monitor in a 1U or 2U Drawer. KVM means Keyboard, Video, and a Mouse. KVM drawers are simply rackmount versions of a keyboard, mouse and monitor. The difference though is that the drawer can occupy single or perhaps two rack units as opposed to dedicating a multi unit rack shelf to those peripherals. These devices can be used in conjunction with a KVM Switch to control multiple systems through a single hardware device. Not only do KVM Drawers reduce clutter, but they are energy efficient items too. Rackmount KVM Drawer products eliminate the need for using redundant keyboards, mice and monitors.
In server room applications where there are a large number of servers in a single server rack, it is extremely inefficient to have a dedicated keyboard, mouse and monitor for each server. The perfect product for such applications is a KVM Drawer with integrated KVM Switch. SmartVM is a leading supplier of wide range of KVM Drawers. The available monitor sizes are 17”, 19” and 20” LCDs. We offer these rackmount drawers with standard VGA, DVI, Composite Video (BNC or RCA), S-Video and HDMI Video interface.
