• Connects 8 DisplayPort Computers or Servers to a Single Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse
    This NetDirector® DisplayPort KVM switch combines a rack-mountable keyboard, 17-inch LCD, touchpad and eight DisplayPort inputs into a compact housing that occupies only 1U of rack space. Access, control, boot and reboot up to eight DisplayPort computers or servers at the same time. No adapters are needed for connecting DisplayPort-enabled equipment.

    Saves Valuable Space and Keeps Your Operating Costs Low
    All connected DisplayPort computers or servers share a single monitor, keyboard and mouse, which saves space in your rack or workspace. DDC emulation allows each computers settings to adjust automatically for optimal screen output. Eliminating the cost of buying monitors, adapters, keyboards and mice for all eight connected devices keeps your TCO (total cost of ownership) low.

    17 in. LCD Supports Crystal-Clear 1080p Video
    The dual-rail B030-DP08-17D supports high-definition video resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) at 60 Hz. The wide display flips up to provide access to connected computers, making multitasking easier and more convenient, and folds down to prevent the console from blocking adjacent rack equipment when not in use. The LCD and the keyboard/touchpad are on separate rails, so the LCD can remain open while the keyboard/touchpad is stored out of the way, keeping the rack aisle clear.

    Switching Between Computers Is Fast and Easy
    Use the on-console push buttons, keyboard hotkey commands or multi-lingual local console On-Screen Display (OSD) to quickly toggle between connected computers. You can also use the Auto Scan feature to scan all connected computers in five-second intervals automatically. Orange LEDs indicate which computer is currently selected. Computers or servers can be quickly added or removed without having to power down the KVM switch.

    Multi-Level Password Security Keeps Your Private Data Private
    Security is enhanced by limiting access to one administrator and no more than four local users. Two-level logout procedure allows you to log out manually or log out automatically after a user-defined period of time has passed.

    Long-Lasting Reliability and Compatibility
    This DisplayPort KVM switch mounts easily into 1U of space in an EIA-standard 19-inch rack with the included brackets (Tripp Lites optional B019-000 - sold separately - allows mounting in a 2-post rack). The B030-DP08-17D is compatible with all major operating systems, including Windows and macOS, for simple integration into your existing structure. Mac/Sun keyboard emulation also is supported. The RJ11 port allows you to upgrade the KVM switchs firmware using the included cable.

    TAA-Compliant for GSA Schedule Purchases
    The B030-DP08-17D is compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA), which makes it eligible for GSA (General Services Administration) Schedule and other federal procurement contracts.
