All-in-One Network Management for Critical Systems
The B042-008 offers a comprehensive, cost-effective network management solution that installs in 1U of rack space. No server-resident software is required, so server performance and reliability are never compromised. Upgradable firmware fine-tunes compatibility with emerging standards.

Supports Multiple Platforms
The B042-008 supports both PS/2 and USB connections (Tripp Lite P780-Series combo KVM cable kits required; sold separately). Because compatibility is based on common hardware standards rather than system software dependencies, almost any platform can be accommodated. Connect multiple versions of multiple platforms in any combination, including Windows®, Mac®, UNIX®, Linux, BSD and DOS.

Simple, Flexible Network Control
The B042-008 is designed to ease multi-server management in data centers, server rooms and other high-density environments. An advanced on screen display (OSD) with high-resolution QXGA video up to 2048 x 1536 provides a graphical user interface with management tools including custom port labeling, auto-scanning and panel array mode. Users may also select a connected computer using on-console pushbuttons or keyboard hotkey commands. Two LEDs per KVM port indicate (1) when a computer is connected to a KVM port and powered on, and (2) when a computer is selected.

Control Multiple Computers
The B042-008 is capable of controlling up to 248 servers/computers by daisy-chaining additional B042-Series KVMs. This gives network managers the flexibility to add capacity when it's needed, accommodating growing data center requirements without disrupting existing equipment.

Access Servers Anywhere with Optional IP Remote Access Capability
The B042-008 accepts an optional IP remote access unit (Tripp Lite model B051-000) that provides secure IP remote access to connected servers/computers without requiring additional rack space. IP remote access enables system administration, BIOS-level troubleshooting, GUI application installations, equipment reboots and more to be accomplished from any location using a standard Web browser or multi-platform client software.

Secure Every Connection
The B042-008 offers two levels of password protection (administrator/user) to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to connected servers/computers.

Peace of Mind
The B042-008 comes with a 1-year warranty.
