Netbook Wattage Switch

Simple, Flexible Network Control
The B020-008-17 is designed to ease multi-server management in data centers, server rooms and other high-density environments. BIOS-level access allows network administrators to solve complex problems efficiently and restore service before downtime affects productivity. An advanced on screen display (OSD) with high-resolution VGA video up to 1280 x 1024 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.

Supports Multiple Platforms
The B020-008-17 supports both PS/2 and USB connections (Tripp Lite P774-Series PS/2 and P776-series USB KVM cable kits required; two 6-ft. PS/2 cable kits included; USB cable kits available 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®, UNIX®, Linux and more.

Control Hundreds of Servers
The B020-008-17 is capable of controlling up to 504 servers/computers by daisy-chaining additional KVMs (Tripp Lite model B022-U16). This gives network managers the flexibility to add capacity when it's needed, accommodating growing data center requirements without disrupting existing equipment. When daisy-chained, the B020-008-17 auto-senses its station position in the installation with no need for manual DIP switch settings A front-panel LED indicates station position.

Access Servers Anywhere with IP Remote Access Accessory
With the addition of an optional IP remote access unit (Tripp Lite model B051-000, sold separately), the B020-008-17 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. A modem port provides optional out-of-band dial-up access to equipment when the network or Internet connection goes down. The B051-000 also supports USB virtual media access.

Access Servers Anywhere with IP Remote Access Accessory

Secure Every Connection

Secure Every Connection
The B020-008-17 offers two levels of password protection (administrator/user) to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to connected servers/computers. IP remote access (if provided by the optional IP remote access unit) is further protected with security features including password protection, advanced encryption, bandwidth-optimized video and detailed activity logging.

Peace of Mind
The B020-008-17 comes with a 1-year warranty.
