As you start putting together the order for the parts and supplies you need to assemble a new server rack, one of the first things you need to choose is going to be your rack mount monitor as this will have a significant effect on the rack mount keyboard / monitor drawer you are going to end up buying. The alternative is to look at buying a monitor that can be mounted directly onto the rack itself,
Buying a Rack Mount Monitor That Mounts Directly On the Rack
If you prefer to use a rack mount monitor that is designed to bolt directly onto your server rack, you will find that we carry an 8U and a 9U TFT LCD monitor to fit your needs Our 8U model is a 19″ display offering 1280 x 1024 resolution, while our 9U model measures 20″ and offers 1600 x 1200 maximum resolution. Each of these monitors includes a 12V 5A remote power adapter and all mounting hardware needed to install them.
If your IT closet is like most, it literally can seem like you are working in a closet and this means that you have little to no room to move around in while you try to keep all of the servers up and running. While some server locations have room for a pull out monitor shelf, when space is this tight, you may find that using a rack mount monitor is a much better option.
We Have Two Different Sizes of Rack Mount Monitor
Just as you have both an 8U and a 9U rack width, we carry an 8U and 9U rack mount monitor that is designed to bolt directly to the front or rear of your server rack so that with the use of a KVM switch, you will be able to keep a very close eye on your entire system without having to worry about taking up what little space you have to work in with a slide out monitor shelf.
When you are ordering parts for your new server rack, including the keyboard monitor drawer, you need to decide which rack mount monitor you are going to use. You actually need to do this before you order the drawer as the size of the monitor you choose is going to have a direct impact on the size and style of rack mount keyboard monitor drawer you end up purchasing.
When All You Want is a Rack Mount Monitor
When you do not need an entire drawer, but prefer to use a rack mount monitor all by itself, you will find that we have an 8U and a 9U TFT LCD monitor to fit your needs The 8U model is a 19″ display offering 1280 x 1024 resolution, while the 9U model measures 20″ and offers 1600 x 1200 maximum resolution. Each comes with a 12V 5A remote power adapter and all mounting hardware for your convenience.
