Share Article

Neuro Logic Systems, Inc., USA manufacturer of ruggedized flat panel LCD display products, announces the world's first ruggedized rackmount 20-inch LCD/sealed keyboard and integrated 16-port KVM switch.

Neuro Logic Systems, Inc. began shipping the world's first 2U high rackmountable 20-inch LCD/Keyboard combo featuring a 16-port CAT5 KVM switch. The RFT-20-2U-MIL-CAT5 is designed for military and harsh environment use and features a sealed, backlit, full-travel keyboard and sealed 38mm 3-button trackball. When closed, the lightweight, aluminum alloy RFT-20-2U-MIL-CAT5 stows into a single, 17" deep 2U space in a transport case or standard RETMA equipment rack.

The high quality, wide view angle 20-inch LCD is protected by strengthened, anti-reflective glass filters. The LCD native resolution is 1600x1200, but also supports the common VESA modes such as 1280x1024, 1024x768 and Sun Microsystems' native resolutions of 1152x900 at 66 and 76Hz. Options for the LCD include daylight readable, NVIS-compatible and backlight controls that allow the unit to function from 100% brightness to 0% brightness in 100 steps.

The RFT-20-2U-MIL-CAT5 also comes equipped with a backlit, sealed, full-travel keyboard and large 3-button trackball. Because it was designed for military use, this unit features 4 thumbscrews for locking the entire unit into a rack. The interlocking design combined with the thumbscrews allows the unit to pass military grade shock and vibration. Other keyboards consist of a Sun Microsystems compatible USB keyboard with all function keys.

While all the above features are great, the key to this unit is the integrated 16-port CAT5 KVM switch. This allows the unit to connect up to 16 servers via a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable instead of using the older, larger and heavier analog cables. This feature greatly reduces the amount of cable in channel guides while allowing the cables to be as long or as short as desired without having to buy custom cables. The CAT5 cable connects into a remote interface connector that has Video, Mouse and Keyboard connectors to connect to the server. The interface connectors are available in VGA and PS/2 or USB connections.

All the above features are installed in an aluminum housing designed to meet Military Specifications 461E, 167, 810 and 901D. While the RFT-20-2U-MIL-CAT5 was designed for military use, it is priced at a level which allows it to be used in any harsh environment situation including vibration, heat and cold. As always with NLS products, this unit is Designed, Engineered and Manufactured in the U.S.A.!!
