The Aten CL5816N is a 16-Port Dual Rail 19" LCD USB/PS2 KVM Switch with Peripheral Sharing.

The CL5816 Slideaway Dual Rail LCD KVM Switch is a rack mountable access point that allows access to multiple PS/2 or USB based computer / servers. An extra shared console port is provided on the rear of the CL5808 to manage the LCD KVM switch from an optional external console control method. (CAT 5 Extender or IP Based Access)

The CL5808 has a 19" LCD monitor and keyboard/touch pad modules that slide independently of each other. To maximize space in your data center, the keyboard/touch pad module slides back to "Hide Away" when not in use, while the thin profile LCD monitor rotates back - flush against the rack - allowing convenient monitoring of computer activity. The CL5808 provides quick and convenient switching to computers and servers through port selection pushbutton located on the keyboard module. Even when the keyboard module is in the retracted position you can still switch access the switch capabilities with the Port Up/Port Down pushbuttons located on the monitor itself.

The CL5816 supports both PS/2 and USB keyboards and mice for the connected computers and servers. The CL5816 also supports USB peripheral devices locally to be used with the attached computers to the KVM Switch. A single CL5808 can control up to 8 computers. As many as 31 additional compatible KVM switches can be daisy chained together, so that up to 256 computers can all be controlled from a single keyboard, monitor, and mouse console.
