CHAPTER 1 GENERAL INFORMATION
The Hawkeye is an ideal solution for network administration with multiple servers /
platforms. Their 15-inch large size TFT LCD color display and ultra-low-profile
compact industrial keyboard / trackball provide the user-friendliest and most reliable
environment for network administrators. All these functions are integrated in a 19-inch
1U space with rugged construction design to achieve ultra space saving and high
reliability for high quality industrial/network applications.
The built-in KVM switch of the RPD-1158 enables easy accessibility to 8 servers /
platforms and supports PS/2 keyboard, PS/2 mouse, and DB15 VGA with eight DB25
connectors. By cascading function, it can connect up to 512 computers or servers.
The Hawkeye monitor / keyboard drawers provide superior picture quality and
state-of-the-art features mounted in an industrial grade, rack mount drawer. The
drawer forms a rugged enclosure that protects the monitor from industrial hazards and
permits easy access to monitor controls.
The Hawkeye monitors provide flicker-free color images at optimal resolutions. The
monitors’ 0.297mm pixel pitch ensures crisp images with clear definition, even at high
resolutions. The Hawkeye monitors are intelligent, microprocessor-based, and have
an ergonomically designed display.
The Hawkeye monitors employ the latest in active matrix thin film transistor (TFT)
technology, providing crisp screen images and wide viewing angles. Unlike CRT
monitors, LCD monitors are inherently immune to the magnetic fields commonly found
on the plant floor or communications centers. LCDs are also typically brighter than
conventional CRT technology, making them ideal for the high ambient lighting
conditions found in many of today's factory environments. On-screen menus allow for
display adjustments. In addition, the monitors' Plug-n-Play+ features support
Windows 95/98 and NT, while a universal power supply ensures global applicability.
The Hawkeye monitors are compatible with most analog RGB (red, green, blue)
display standards, including PS/V, PS/2, optional for Apple Macintosh Centris,
Quadra, and Macintosh II family signals. The LCD monitor is capable of displaying
crisp and vibrant color graphics with VGA, SVGA, XGA (non-interlaced), and most
Macintosh compatible color video cards.
