maximum distance and convenience out of your network installation while saving
money with Tripp Lite’s B078-101-USB2 Server Interface Module with Virtual
Media Support. The B078-101-USB2 uses a server’s USB and HD15 ports and
converts them to a single Cat5e/6 cable output at transfer rates up to 12Mbps,
allowing the server to connect to one of Tripp Lite’s compatible NetCommander®
Cat5 IP KVM switches up to 100 feet away. The B078-101-USB2 is compact and
lightweight to save space and de-clutter your network application. With no
software or external power supply needed, the B078-101-USB2 will be ready to
work right out of the box for easy installation and quick application
Convenient, Cost-Effective Solution for Your Network Connection NeedsTraditional, thick KVM cables are a thing of the past. By using cost-effective Cat5e/6 cabling, the B078-101-USB2 frees up space in your server cabinet and allows for increased ventilation, longer cable runs and greater savings. This server interface module is needed to connect a USB server to a compatible Tripp Lite KVM switch.
Note: The B078-101-USB2 is not compatible with all NetCommander Cat5 IP KVM switches. Contact Tripp Lite Technical Support for information on your model.
Virtual Media Support
The B072-101-USB2 supports virtual media data transfer rates up to 12Mbps.
Plug-and-Play ConvenienceWith the B078-101-USB2, there is no software or external power needed. Simply plug the USB and HD15 connectors into the server to be controlled, run the Cat5e/6 cabling to your KVM and you’re ready to go. The unit connects a server or computer with a HD15 connector for video and USB type connectors for mouse and keyboard control to a Tripp Lite B070- or B072-Series KVM switch with Cat5e/6 (RJ45) connectors.
Greater Distance—Greater Flexibility
Using Cat5e/6 cabling allows for your server to be located up to 100 feet away from the KVM switch that controls it. By eliminating bulkier KVM cables, the B078-101-USB2 also allows for cabling to run through conduits and other tight spaces, guaranteeing maximum flexibility when setting up your KVM application.
The B078-101-USB2’s compact, lightweight design allows for flexibility when connecting it to a server or computer. The unit’s form factor enables it to fit in tight spaces and frees up space where traditional KVM cabling might limit ventilation and accessibility.
One Year Warranty and Environmentally Responsible Design
The B078-101-USB2 is backed by a one-year warranty and is manufactured in compliance with strict RoHS specifications, reflecting Tripp Lite’s commitment to environmental responsibility.
