The Aten KL1516M is a 17" Rackmount LCD drawer with 16 Port Cat5 KVM switch which 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 (For user's who don't like touch pads), and an additional console port for connecting an extender to remotely control your servers.
