The Minicom by Tripplite 0SU52016 is the Phantom MXII KVM switching solution which allows two Phantom users to simultaneously control and manage up to 63 servers in mixed, multi-platform environments (PS/2, SUN, RS-232, USB) from two separate KVM consoles.  This KVM solution is an ideal solution for larger data centers that require more than one supervisor and need the flexibility of operating from both local and remote locations.

The Phantom MX II 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 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: two Managers and multiple Remote units. The Remote units can be placed on the side or back of the rack (Specter II Units) where they occupy no rack space! Now you can dedicate more of your rack to servers instead of wasting space on switches.

The Phantom MX II system consists of the following units (all sold separately):

  • (1) Phantom MX II Manager unit per system
  • (1) Universal Phantom Manager (UPM) unit per system
  • (1) Remote unit per computer (Specter II) up to 63 per line
