Question: What is the key command to change to next server
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The hotkey combination to change servers is dependent on which KVM switch you have connected to the Avocent LRA185KMM-001 rack mount monitor (note, the LRA185KMM-001 does not ship by standard with a KVM switch; you can easily connect a KVM switch by plugging it into the local user ports of the KVM).

Please feel free to respond to this message with your KVM model, or contact your KVM Switches Online sales representative directly.

Question: What type of DVI connector do I need?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

If you are hoping to plug-in a DVI source to the console (i.e. this PN LRA185KMM-001 with no integrated KVM Switch), you will need an active VGA to DVI Converter (i.e. Adder DVA) or an active DVI to VGA Converter (i.e. NTI DVI-VGA).

If you have the console with an integrated KVM, you can simply use MPUIQ-VMCDV dongles for the server interface connections. The MPUIQ-VMCDV dongles feature Single-Link DVI-D connections.

Question: Are there replacement rackmount kits?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

See below for replacement rail information for the Avocent (by Vertiv) LRA185KMM-001:


That being said, to receive replacement rails, the unit must still be covered with warranty; the rails are not sold separately.

Question: Do you have rails for the LRA185KMM-001 that fit in an APC AR3300?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The LRA185KMM should fit into the APC AR3300 Rack using the standard rack mount kit. The AR3300 is standard 19" EIA, and has a maximum mounting depth of 41.73 inches (1060 mm). Is this not working in your application?

Alternatively, you may also be interested in the similar Raloy RWX119 or Raloy RF117HD units, which include rails that would work with the APC AR3300 Rack.
