  • Models available with redundant power supplies.

    Go with a blueprint or design your own.
    Your ServSwitch Affinity options are limited only by your application needs! Choose our preconfigured models for either 2 users and 8 CPUs (KV132A-R2) or for 4 users and 16 CPUs (KV134A-R2). Or start with an empty expansion chassis (KV130A, KV130DA, KV138A, KV138DA, KV139A, or KV139DA) and add plug-in cards to create an Affinity configuration that suits your application perfectly! Each chassis supports up to 4 users and 16 CPUs. Use the expansion cables to cascade multiple chassis and attach up to 4, 8, or 16 users and 1000 CPUs!

    It’s easy to use.
    The multiplatform ServSwitch Affinity is easy to operate. Connect your PC, Sun®, or PC UNIX® CPUs and keyboards, monitors, and mice using the cables below. You can even connect your USB keyboards and mice. Then access the on-screen menu, configure and save your settings, and you’re ready to go!

    The Affinity features a configuration password as well as user login passwords.
    Access your CPUs in one of four ways:
    • In view mode, a control station’s monitor reflects a selected CPU’s activity, but the keyboard and mouse are disabled and no changes can be made.
    • In share mode, the control stations gain access to CPUs on a first-come, first-served basis. A control station releases control of a CPU for use by the other station(s) after a time-out period.
    • In control mode, one control station can take exclusive control of a CPU. Other stations can access the CPU but cannot control it in any way.
    • In private mode, one control station has exclusive access and control over a CPU.

    Amazing on-screen technology:
