The Aten KL1508M is a slide away Rackmount LCD drawer with KVM switch.  The KL1508M provides a compact solution to working in cramped server rooms. It has a unique dual rail configuration so the LCD monitor slides independently of the keyboard, which allows the keyboard to be conveniently stowed out of the way, while the LCD monitor stands vertically flat against the rack for monitoring purposes, thus keeping your aisle clear.

The use of common Cat-5 cable to connect the 1U KVM to your servers serves a two fold purpose, first cable length is no longer an issue, simply make it as long as you like (up to 130 ft) and secondly, although the computer ports panel is a high density configuration, it's still easy to add new devices, or reconfigure your existing set up.  The KVM includes a standard PS/2 mouse port (if you prefer not to use the touch pad), and an additional console port for connecting an extender to remotely control your servers.

Aten KL1508M Features:

  • KVM console with 17" LCD monitor in a sliding housing with top and bottom clearance for smooth operation in a 1U high rack
  • RJ-45 connectors and Cat 5 cable - extends the distance between computers and switch up to 40m (130') for resolutions of 1280 x 1024 @60Hz
  • Dual Rail operation - LCD monitor slides independently of the keyboard/ touchpad
  • A dedicated console port for management from an external console - plus an extra PS/2 mouse port for external mouse use with the integrated LCD console
  • KVM adapter cables with automatic conversion allow flexible interface combinations. PCs, Macs, Sun computers, and serial devices can all coexist on the installation
  • A single console controls up to 8 directly connected computers - daisy chain up to 31 additional units to control up to 256 computers
  • No software required - convenient computer selection via port selection switches, Hotkeys and intuitive On Screen Display (OSD) menus
  • Console lock enables the sliding console to remain securely locked away when not in use
  • OSD screen automatically adjusts to resolution changes - OSD tree structure makes finding and managing computers easy
  • Quickly and conveniently switch to any computer with station and port selection switches LED displays indicate the station and port location
  • Video settings of attached computers are automatically adjusted for optimal output to the LCD monitor
  • Auto Scan feature for monitoring user-selected computers
  • Two level password security - only authorized users view and control the computers - up to four users plus an administrator with separate profiles for each
  • Broadcast support - commands from the keyboard can be broadcast to all available computers on the installation
  • Dedicated keys to invoke Hotkey Mode and the OSD from the keyboard for quick access to these functions
  • Rack mountable in 19" System Rack (1U) - standard rack mount kit included

Question: what does the firmware upgrade cable look like?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. We are having some trouble tracking down a manual for this discontinued unit from ATEN.

However, looking at other manuals in this series, it appears the cable may have an RJ-11 jack on one end (to plug into the unit near the monitor) and a DB-9 serial connector for the computer.
