Ordering Information
Convert a laptop to a mobile crash cart/KVM console for any VGA + USB servers or computers. The USB Laptop Console Crash Cart Adapter plugs into any VGA + USB Server or Computer and allows the administrator to view & control the system from a separate laptop, as well as transfer of files between laptop and PC. Software running on the laptop will allow full access to the target system, which also supports full keyboard and mouse control. The adapter can be quickly plugged into a target system via the VGA and USB ports, and the laptop would then connect to the USB Laptop Console Crash Cart via a single USB connector. The software then emulates the video, keyboard, and mouse so that the administrator can gain full control of the target system.

Remedying a server problem in a room without a local user console used to mean wheeling in the "crash cart," a rolling cart loaded with a keyboard, monitor, mouse, and a bunch of connecting cables for on-the-spot computer access.

But with the Black Box USB Laptop Console Crash Cart Adapter with integrated cabling, you have a compact and easier way to get immediate, BIOS-level access to your server.

Despite its name, there's no actual "cart" involved. In this case, the cart is the laptop that you carry to the server and, using the adapter, plug in to obtain quick server access.

Connect to the video port of any server in trouble to perform emergency system recovery, carry out routine system maintenance, or do whatever server task you like, just as if you had a full KVM console with a VGA monitor connected to the server itself.
