The Avocent AMX5120 desktop user station doubles as a monitor stand and provides access from your desk to one AMX KVM matrix switch and one local computer. The Avocent AMX5120 system connects to your multi-platform KVM peripherals and sends the KVM signals over an industry-standard UTP cable to an Avocent AMX5120 matrix switch. Avocent exclusive AutoTuning technology allows the Avocent AMX5120-AM user station to automatically compensate for varying cable types and lengths, including CAT 5, CAT 5e and CAT 6. AutoTuning technology adjusts for signal losses each time a switch is made to a server.  The AMX5120-AM user station works with the patented OSCAR on-screen interface. The OSCAR interface uses multi-lingual, intuitive menus for click and connect system configuration and server selection.
