Original Press Release:
New 16 Port KVM Switch in Console Drawer Mounts Keyboard and 17 Inch Monitor on Independent Rails in 1U High Space
AZUSA, Calif. (August 3, 2005) - Acme Portable Machines, Inc., a leading provider of rugged portable computers, today introduced a new 19" rack mounted KVM switch with dual sliding rails for the independent keyboard and monitor movement. The new switch, the DMK 590, is an industrial mounted console drawer with a slim KVM switch, keyboard, mouse and 17" monitor that fold down to fit into a 1U high slot of a 19" rack system. The new switch can handle up to 16 computers, servers and like devices and can be linked up to other KVM switches to extend control to additional systems common in medium and large-scale computer rooms of computer telephony, storage area networks and web server applications.
The advantage of the DMK 590 is the use of dual rails that allow users to slide just the monitor out or the keyboard or both. Typical rack mounted KVM switches require users to slide and leave out the switch, keyboard and monitor. DMK 590 users simply slide out the monitor and keyboard, position the monitor so it is upright and viewable, and push the keyboard back into the rack leaving the monitor visible and flush with the rest of the rack. Accessing attached devices only requires pulling out the keyboard and slipping it back in when not being used. This allows technicians easy monitoring of entire racks without drawers being left in the pulled out open position presenting a cleaner, safer and more organized environment.
By daisy-chaining additional DMK 590 KVM switches, technicians can monitor up to 64 devices simultaneously for a straight forward, easy method of monitoring entire networks. Technicians can easily switch between attached devices from front push buttons, Hot Keys or the On Screen Display. Each DMK 590 KVM switch supports eight-character password protection, PC server name search, and auto-scanning modes for monitoring PC's. Viewable from 160º side to side, the 1280 x 1024 17" monitor is a flat panel TFT LCD screen with anti-glare tempered glass for added protection to the LCD screen (15" monitors are also available).
Price And Availability
The DMK 590 meets EIA 310c and IEC-3 specifications and UL, CE and FCC safety approvals and is compatible with DOS, Win3.X, Win 95/98/98SE/2000/ME/XP, WinNT, Netware, SCP Unix, HP Unix and Linux. The DMK 590 is priced at $1,999 and is available upon requested orders.
