Project 1: KVM

Last year, DuPont Netherlands BV was looking for a solution for their new production and central office management and control. DuPont was already familiar with Black Box and asked her to think about the interpretation of this. Black Box was the only party with products suited for DuPont's high resolution (1920 x 1200) widescreens. Black Box designed and installed a system with extenders and KVM products, which continues to work satisfactorily.

Project 2: Control Room Solution

Following this project, DuPont wanted to renew the control room in its production environment. In this space, a new desk was placed with workstations for management and monitoring of the production process. Thirteen PCs could not remain in the control room because they would be too hot and too noisy, as well as too difficult to maintain.

Black Box designed a solution for this situation that included cabinets, KVM extenders, cables, and KVM ServSwitches, all of which was extensively tested, delivered, and installed. This extensive project resulted in a customized solution for DuPont Netherlands BV.
"I am very pleased with the progress of the project. There were some problems with the installation by other parties, but Black Box was very flexible and put the customer first. The engineers at Black Box were involved in a solution, even though the problems were not caused by Black Box. Eventually, they made sure that all the equipment fit perfectly together. I am very happy. "
