The KH1508A KVM switches are control units that allow IT administrators to access and control multiple computers from a single PS/2 or USB KVM console (keyboard, monitor, and mouse). Operators can take control of up to 8 computers. By daisy chaining up to 31 additional switches, as many as 256 computers can be controlled from the original KVM console.

These switches have been designed with unique and powerful features that enable administrators to manage their entire server room and data center devices easily and conveniently. For example, the advanced Adapter ID feature stores the Adapter Cable's configuration information - such as its ID, port name, OS, keyboard language, etc. This feature allows administrators to relocate servers to different ports without having to reconfigure the adapters . Other advances found with these switches includes enhanced video quality - extending the distance to the servers to up to 165 feet (50 m) at a resolution of 1280 x 1024

Question: Hello, is this a direct replacement for KH1508?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

Yessir, the KH1508a is a direct replacement (newer version) of the KH1508 KVM switch. You can change the part numbers interchangeably these days.

Question: I have a question about your part KH1508A and the KA9520 dongle. If I use the PS2 dongle server side will it work with a USB keyboard and mouse on the KVM side?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

It would indeed! The Aten KH1508A KVM gives you an option of using USB or PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse on the KVM side, which is not dependent on the source KVM dongles kb/ms interface.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with!
