A Rackmount LCD for Every Workspace

Every IT professional knows how valuable space is. Small workspaces can pile up with necessary peripherals, notes, and tools, leaving little room for one of the biggest workspace necessities: screens. Large screens compete for valuable desk space, and with some industry professionals needing multiple screens, it gets even harder to manage. This is why space-saving multipurpose rackmounts are such an integral part of IT workplaces around the country. Their unique structures have long been used to store servers, audio/visual equipment, switches and other computing modules, and this same efficient storage solution provides the answer you need with KVMSwitchTech’s wide line of rackmount LCD screens.

What’s in the Rack?

No matter what section of IT you work in, you’re sure to find a module that mounts perfectly into a rackmount. Standard 1U racks have a span of 19 inches and have holes on the front and back that can be used to bolt various modules in place, allowing for a customizable storage solution. Like many rackmount modules, KVMSwitchTech’s rackmount LCD screens are part of a drawer-style module, meaning they can be slid in and out of a 1U rack as need dictates. The screens fold flat to fit in the drawer, but can be flipped to face outward, flush with the front of the rack. If the user decides to install these racks on a clear front, users can open the screen and view them easily.

Types of Rackmount Keyboards

A rackmount keyboard drawer is a single unit housing a keyboard and a touchpad or trackball mouse in one self-contained unit. These rack mount keyboards usually come standard as part of a KVM unit, and are used because they lower the space requirement to get one of these systems set up. Some rack keyboards come with integrated KVM switches allowing them to interface with a wide number of different interfaces without having to depend on an external KVM switch.

Rackmount keyboard units provide a new realm of mobility and portability in computers and this has led to an overall change in the paradigm of how people consider mobile computing. There are multiple types of rackmount keyboards available, depending on your needs.

KVMSwicthTech’s rackmount keyboard usually comes with a combo USB and PS2 connector for ease of interface with other peripherals.

The USB plug-and-play compatibility can even allow for hot swapping the connection without having to restart the machine for detection.

In addition to this, there are a wide number of switches that may be used in conjunction with the 1U rackmount keyboard tray. There are drawers that come with integrated PS2 KVM connectivity, USB connectivity, IP and Cat5 KVM switches, and switches that connect to multiple combinations of these connections. The possibilities for connection are endless.

Rackmount keyboards are usually designed in two basic layouts. A clam-shell design is where the display has a hinge at the rear, allowing it to fold over the keyboard for protection and storage. The shorter installed depth is definitely a plus. The lay-flat design adds hinges to the front edge along the display allowing it to fold back. The deep installation allows for the entire 1U to be used for trackball and keyboard depth. Both of these designs add to the low profile layout associated with machines of this type. Manufacturers use both types of designs in their configurations.

Rackmount keyboards allow for a great level of mobility from your computer. With a rackmount keyboard system that is 1U high, you can easily see why many low-profile vendors are opting for using the layouts we have available over others.
