    Setup is a snap. Just plug in your monitor, keyboard, and mouse and attach your CPUs using ServSwitch Coax CPU Cables (EHN235-0010). These high-quality cables ensure optimum signal integrity and simplify your connections. There's no software to install and there's no board to configure!

    Afraid you'll sacrifice features to save money? Don't worry! The Simplicity is dependable—and it doesn't skimp on performance. It supports video resolutions up to 1024 x 768, and it's interface powered, which means you don't need a bulky external power supply.

    The ServSwitch Simplicity features full keyboard and mouse emulation, so the switch continuously sends CPUs the keyboard and mouse signals they expect. That way, you don’t have to worry about emulation-related CPU lockup. In addition, the Simplicity supports PS/2 mice and a variety of wheel mice, including Microsoft® IntelliMouse®, and Logitech™ MouseMan®. If you want to know if your mouse is supported, just contact our FREE Tech Support.

    ServSwitch Simplicity is housed in a small, yet rugged metal chassis. You can switch between CPUs via a push button or hotkey sequence. The Simplicity also supports Scan Mode, so you can alternately view the video signals of the attached CPUs at three-second intervals.
