The B078-101-USB-8 is an 8-Pack of Tripp Lite's B078-101-USB-1 NetCommander USB Server Interface Units (SIU). Each SIU connects to the HD15 port and USB port on a computer/server, and converts them to a single RJ45 connector. Ordinary Cat5e patch cables can then be used to connect the server to the switch ports on a Tripp Lite B070 / B072-Series NetCommander Cat5 KVM switch. Use of Cat5e cables frees up space in the installation that would ordinarily be filled by traditional, thicker KVM cables.

Convenient, Cost-Effective Solution for Your Network Connection NeedsWith Tripp Lite’s B078-101-USB-8, traditional, thick KVM cables are a thing of the past. By using cost-effective Cat5e/6 cabling, the B078-101-USB-8 frees up space in your server cabinet and allows for increased ventilation, longer cable runs and greater savings. This server interface unit is needed to connect a USB server to Tripp Lite’s B070/B072-series KVM switches.
Greater Distance—Greater Flexibility
Using Cat5e/6 cabling allows 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-USB-8 allows for cabling to run through conduit and other tight spaces, guaranteeing maximum flexibility when setting up your network application.
Plug-and-Play ConvenienceWith the B078-101-USB-8, there is no software or external power needed. 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 an HD15 connector for video and USB-type connectors for mouse and keyboard control to a KVM switch with Cat5e/6 (RJ45) connectors.
Innovative, Compact Design
The B078-101-USB-8’s compact, lightweight design allows for flexibility when connecting it to a server or computer. The unit’s form factor allows it to fit in tight spaces and free up space where traditional KVM cabling might limit ventilation and accessibility.
