RPD-1151/1158 User Manual



1.1 Overview

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.
