8-Port VGA KVMP with USB & PS/2 Interface

IOGEAR's GCS1808 KVMP is a combo USB and PS/2 switch allowing access and control of up to 128* computers from a single console (keyboard, mouse, and monitor). Cascade as many as 8 additional switches to bring the total number of connected computers to 64 computers that can be controlled from a single keyboard-monitor-mouse console. A custom ASIC (patent pending) provides an auto-sensing function that recognizes the position of each station on the installation, eliminating the need to manually set the position with DIP switches. Additionally, the GCS1808 features high density SPHD 15-pin instead of the usual 25-pin connectors thus allowing for a compact design and installation in a 1U system rack.

Expanded Peripheral Sharing

The GCS1808 includes one USB port located on the front panel for easy access for system upgrades and shared peripherals. Setup is fast and easy; plugging cables into their appropriate ports is all that is needed. The switch supports both USB and PS/2 connections for the console and computers. The GCS1808 intercepts keyboard input directly, thus eliminating the need for any software configuration.

Convenient Switching Methods

Switching between computers can be easily accomplished either by manually pressing the front panel push button port LEDs, entering hotkey combinations from the keyboard, or via a menu driven multilingual on-screen display (OSD) system. A convenient auto-scan feature permits automatic scanning and monitoring of activities on all connected.
