The Minicom by Tripplite 0SU52015 is a Universal Phantom Manager which is a  micro-sized KVM switch especially designed for single user KVM management of up to 63 servers on a single line making it the ideal solution for high density server and rack environments like server farms, data centers or corporate server rooms.  The micro-sized Specter provides more power than a conventional switch by freeing up rack space, eliminating cable clutter and maximizing your flexibility.

The Universal Phantom Manager features advanced On Screen Display (OSD) management, including multi-layered security, the most efficient way for monitoring, accessing and controlling your servers.  You can also manage your Phantom system, via a serial port, using the Phantom's Control Software or any other third party software.  Phantom's Distributed Switching Technology (DST) divides the KVM switch into smaller subunits: a Manager and multiple Remote units. The Remote units can be placed inside the servers (PCI Cards) or on the side or back of the rack (Specter Units) where they occupy no rack space.

The Phantom Specter system consists of two separate units (all sold separatly):

  • (1) Universal Phantom Manager (UPM) unit per system
  • (1) Remote unit per computer (Specter) up to 63 per line
  • Single user control of up to 63 servers on a single line
