Overview

The Draco tera compact is specifically designed for smaller to mid-sized KVM requirements using the same technology found in the larger Draco tera enterprise switch systems. Sized to support 8, 16, 32, 48, 64 or 80 ports, this fixed frame concept is offered in Cat-X or Cat X / fiber combinations in a 2 RU chassis for the 64 and 80 port models. Based on a small footprint package, this cost effective frame can be used with all of the Draco compact extender modules creating one of the World’s widest selection of KVM solutions supporting DVI single link, DVI dual-link, VGA, HDMI, USB-HID, USB 2.0, Audio and Serial RS232.

Building on the field proven technology found in the Draco tera enterprise, the tera compact series brings a full set of high performance features at an affordable price. It is a simple operation to set up and configure the matrix with the on-screen display (OSD) or through any of the available software bundles supporting the feature-enhanced Draco tera tool. For those who prefer a third party control application, the Draco tera compact can be configured to operate with many popular control systems using the IHSE API protocol package.

Outboard extenders can be connected with Cat X up to 140 m on either side. With the 64 port (48/16 fiber) and 80 port (48/32 fiber), KVM signals can be extended up to 10 km. Extenders can accommodate a variety of signal formats and the Draco tera compact auto-senses the individual units through any available port on the chassis. By simply connecting the extender to the chassis, the internal control software will recognize and auto configure the port as a CPU or console device.

This flex-port technology provides a huge time savings for system installers who normally have to pre-configure ports to specific I/O requirements. The Draco tera compact switch system includes instant switching technology for all the popular formats up to and including 2560 x 2048 at 50/60Hz and full 24 bit resolutions. With incredible speed, switching between sources is glitch-free and instantaneous thus reducing eye strain and annoying video tearing found with other systems. With the small footprint and ruggedized chassis design, the Draco tera compact is the perfect KVM space-saving solution where centralized switching of KVM is necessary. It is especially suited for factory floor automation control systems, board rooms, production studios, small class rooms, and command and control environments.
