Rackmount Console – Get Prior Knowledge Before You Go Shopping.

Author : John rocks


By investing in a rackmount console for our data centers we get to free up the space that CRT monitors occupy, and this creates room in our racks where we can add more equipment. This is possible because the console screen is usually thin and can be hinged at the base just like a laptop screen to make it small enough to occupy one 1U of rack space. Also referred to as the rackmount TFT in some circles, these screens are available mainly as 17, 19 and 20-inch screen sizes, and therefore they can occupy 7U, 8U and 9U form factor respectively when in the flipped up position.

With the flip up capability a rackmount console can be slid in and out of the rack and since it is thin enough, it can be left in the open position when the rack door is closed thus allowing you to monitor a handful of conditions without opening the door. Rackmount TFT models feature sturdy designs which make them robustly resistant to shocks and vibration (of course to a certain degree). Despite their robust designs rackmount monitor drawers also feature stylish panels which sport simple menu keys. Virtually all modern console varieties in the market feature touch screen capability and also offer support for audio signals where you can add integrated speakers.

A much desired capability in modern rackmount TFT models is the Quad Screen property whereby by looping 4 BNC inputs the monitor is able to simultaneously display four video feeds on a single screen. As such, a rackmount console is suitable for use in surveillance monitoring, CCTV, Control rooms and data centers.

Currently, most rackmount displays fully support just about all systems presently available in the market, including but not limited to HP, SUN, Dell, Mac and IBM. They also support all modern video signals from inputs such as DVI, Composite RCA, HDMI, VGA, S-Video and BNC. These screens are also available in DC power options including 12, 24 or 48 volts.

The best of the rackmount TFT displays are built to support plug-and-play functionality without the supplementary set up adapters or drivers. It is best to go for a rackmount monitor that has USB inputs and several other different inputs so that you can fully exploit its capabilities in an effort to make your network more efficient.

Most rackmount console models are plug-and-play meaning that they are easy to install and can also be hot pluggable. They also feature On Screen Display OSD with controls such as brightness, color, contrast, clock, H and V position, Phase, Scaling, and so forth. With a variety of resolutions 1440X900, 1680X1050, 1600X1200 and 1280X1024, there is indeed a screen that will be just perfect for your application/s whether in commercial, home, industrial or military fields.
