First Product of Its Kind to Offer 19-Inch Display Option;
BOSTON, September 15, 2003 - Kontron, a leading embedded computer technology company, today introduced the RMVS 1U Series -- the next evolution in the company´s successful line of reliable 1U monitor/keyboard drawers.
Tailored for military, telecommunications, broadcast, information display and other space-critical, industrial applications and environments, the RMVS allows multiple back panel termination options including analog RGB, DVI or S-Video outputs. Optional 8- or 16-port KVM also is available, which can be cascaded with additional KVM switches to control up to 512 systems.
The RMVS may be ordered with a 15-inch, 17-inch or unprecedented 19-inch TFT LCD display -- all with high contrast ratios and wide viewing angles. Featuring a heavyweight Torq hinge, the monitor is designed to assume and remain in any position and to tuck cleanly away when the drawer is closed. Three standard keyboard configurations are available to suit different applications, including a mini-keyboard with trackball, full keyboard with glidepad or a NEMA4 sealed keyboard. Other keyboard configurations are available by special order.
Designed for fast mounting in standard 19-inch rack cabinets, the RMVS ships standard with pre-installed ball-bearing slide rails for easy installation. For mobile or heavy-vibration applications, non-ball bearing slide rails are available by special order. The unit´s standard black finish can be customized with any color or logo.
Evaluation RMVS units are now available. Kontron expects RMVS production units to be available for purchase in early October, starting at $1,649 (actual pricing may vary).
