Great rackmount console I use this to connect to 7 different servers. Quite simply, it works very well. Set up is easy, as is operation. I've used this for just over three years and haven't had one problem. If you need a rackmount console, I recommend this one, or one from the same family. October 14, 2014
No problem setting it up out of the box. The monitor has a good sharp image, set up is a breeze. It is simple to mount in the server rack. October 1, 2012

Can the B020-008-17 Console and KVM Switch be separated and separately mounted? I have limited depth in my 19" EIA cabinet .
If the two can be separated what is the depth for the Console alone? Depth for the KVM Switch alone? Additional parts?

Answer: 
No, the two can not be separated. If you have a short depth cabinet ( and have not yet purchased the KVM unit ), we suggest the B021-000-19-SH + B042-008 ( cables purchased separately, P780-006 ). The B021-000-19-SH will mount at a min depth of 19" to 30".
