In addition, both PS/2 and USB interfaces are offered for output connections.

The CPE2CKS-10 is highly versitile offering an installed mounting depth of as little as 17.6" to a maximum of 30". The short mounting depth is perfect for transit case installations. Mounting for deeper rack cabinets is optionally available. Center post mounting is also available.

The slides provide lock out buttons and the drawer is held closed in the rack with two captive thumb screws for secure storage in high shock/vibration environments.

The CPE2CKS-10 can be used stand alone or connected with a KVM to control up to 512 computers from this one keyboard. It is compatible with both Intel/Microsoft and Sun systems.
