Black Box KVT100A overview

  • 1Description

The USB Laptop Console Crash Cart Adapter from Black Box provides a compact way to get immediate BIOS-level access to your server. The cart is the laptop that you carry to the server and, using the adapter, you can plug in to obtain quick server access. Connect to the video port of any crashed server to perform emergency system recovery, carry out routine system maintenance, or perform a server task of your choice.

By emulating a USB keyboard and mouse, the USB laptop adapter and its software enables you to interact with the target server as a window on your laptop. For server connections, the adapter has a built-in VGA video and USB keyboard/mouse connectors. On the laptop side, it features a high-speed (480 Mb/s) USB mini type (B) connector with a detachable USB cable for server-to-laptop links. For older PS/2 style keyboards, there is a passive PS/2 to USB adapter included*. The fully hot-pluggable adapter requires no external power, thus making it portable and easy to use.

The adapter comes with versatile video scaling options. With this adapter, all the software is copied to your laptop without the need to load any drivers or software on the server. The adapter's software gives you real-time video scaling so you can always see the entire screen, even on small laptop displays. Enlarge the window to use all pixels of your laptop (with or without the laptop taskbar seen), or shrink to view another application next to it. Video adjustments also include sample phase sharpening and video noise filtering. Moreover, upon rebooting the connected system, the software interface gives you command line interface and BIOS-level visibility from start to finish. You can even take screen snapshots (as PNG or JPEG files) for system analysis later.

Note: *The adapter does not support PS/2 mice

You can log in to a server or computer to troubleshoot or service a system after a crash
Handheld adapter plugs into the server on one end and your laptop on the other
No drivers to install on the target computer
Includes software for viewing server video on your laptop, without having to reboot or change the server in any way
Scale the video window as needed and even take a screen snapshot.
Works with Windows and Mac OS X laptops


Useful for performing system maintenance in compact server rooms, where you can't fit a crash cart or install a KVM console tray in the rack or cabinet
Classrooms where the server or CPUs are stored in the back of the room and you need quick access to diagnose a problem while students are actively working on their computers
Troubleshooting ATMs, kiosks, and retail PoS/PoP systems in stores and other areas heavily trafficked by the public
Configuring digital signage in real time at the screen, away from the controlling PC (just plug the adapter into the player)
Any field application where you need to interact with target computers
