October 18, 2006 -- Electro Standards Laboratories has introduced its Model 4875 remotely controllable KVM A/B switch. The switch allows access to two computers or servers from a single set of KVM devices.
The keyboard, monitor, and mouse devices are connected to the unit's "common" set of ports; computer and/or servers are connected to the A and B set of ports. Switch position can be controlled manually from a front panel push button, or remotely by a simple contact closure connected to the RJ-45 remote port.
Remote switching can be achieved by connecting to any of three optional remote units: the company's Model 4856 single channel console remote, Model 4857 dual channel console remote, or the Model 4855 16-channel area remote unit. Switch position status is displayed by front panel LEDs.
