  • With the ServSelect™ III (1 x 8), a single user can access up to eight servers and network devices from a PS/2® or USB console. Plus you can cascade up to 16 ServSelect III units to control up to 128 servers in your system! Simply put, the ServSelect III is ideal for IS departments where you need access to multiple servers.

    Convenient on-screen menus.
    Intuitive on-screen menus enable you to configure your system and select servers and other switches. You can easily identify each server by a unique name, ID number, or port number. Two operational modes enable you to manage your switching activities: Scan and Broadcast.

    In Scan mode, the ServSelect III sequentially displays the status of up to eight servers on-screen. You select which servers are scanned in a sequence and the how many seconds each is displayed.

    In Broadcast mode, a user can simultaneously control more than one server to ensure that all selected servers receive the same input.

    Keep-alive power safeguards, password protection, and more.
    BIOS-level access ensures connection to the attached servers, regardless of the servers' health or operating system. What's more, the ServSelect III's keep-alive safeguard enables the attached servers to continue functioning even if the switch experiences a power failure.

    Protect your system with a screen-saver password for each user. When a user station is unused for a period of time, the monitor enters a screen-saving mode and can only be unlocked by typing a password.

    The ServSelect III is also flash upgradable, which means it's built for your system's future. Upgrade your firmware at any time by using the switch's simple update utility.

    Optimal video resolution.
    You get optimal 1280 x 1024 resolution for when you connect a user station to the ServSelect III with a 10-foot (3.0-m) cable. Keep in mind that the longer the cable, the lower the resolution. For example, resolution is a maximum 800 x 600 when the connection is 50 feet (15.2 m).

    Although the system adjusts automatically to the optimal video parameters, you can fine-tune the image manually and set refresh and frame rates. The ServSelect III supports Display Data Channel (DDC) Plug-and-Play, which autoconfigures the monitor and is compliant with the VESA DDC2B standard.

    The genius of ServSelect III Cables. (Sold separately.)
    Make connections to individual servers with nonflashable ServSelect III Cables. These CAT5 cables provide keyboard, video, and mouse connectivity. Simply connect a cable's RJ-45 end to your ServSelect III and the other end to your server.

    Mulitplatform connectivity.
    To connect VT100™, PS/2, USB, or Sun® servers more than 15 feet (4.5 m) from your ServSelect III, order our ServSelect Server Access Modules (SAMs) (sold separately). Powered by their connected servers, the modules "keep alive" even if the ServSelect III loses its power. Order one for each switch-to-CPU connection.

    The modules feature built-in KVM connectors. All you need is CAT5 cable to link your ServSelect III with these modules. All ServSelect SAMs are flash upgradable to keep your system up to date.
