APC’s AP5201 8-port Rackmount KVM switch fits on the desktop or mount in 1U of rack space. Daisy-chain compatible units and manage up to 512 servers through one keyboard, monitor, and mouse. APC Rackmount KVM switches support multiple platforms (PS/2, USB, or SUN), use slimmer cables for better cable management, are firmware upgradeable, and allow servers to be connected and disconnected without powering down the KVM. LEDs on the front of all units display which channels are active. Use hotkeys or the on-screen display to switch easily among connected servers. Reduce hardware costs, save space, reduce heat generation, and lower power consumption using APC Rackmount KVMs.  Includes documentation CD, rack mounting brackets, and user Manual. Cables are not included.
