ATEN (KH88) 8-Port KVM Switch w/ Detachable Front Panel
ATEN's new KH88 KVM Switch enables access to multiple computers from a single console (keyboard, monitor and mouse). The ATEN KH88 unit is unique in that the front panel can be detached from the body and mounted at the front of a rack, while the body is mounted at the rear, so the user can easily see precisely where all cables are attached. One ATEN KH88 can control up to eight computers. Since units can be cascaded to three levels, in a full three-stage installation, up to 73 KH88s can control up to 512 computers - all from a single console.
