Save Valuable Rack Space with an LCD Console Tray
LCD console trays are essential tools for system administrators, IT managers, and anyone who needs quick access to multiple servers, computers, or other devices in a data center or server room. These trays allow users to manage and control multiple devices from a single point, which saves time and increases productivity.
What is an LCD Console Tray?
An LCD console tray is a rack-mounted device that provides a convenient and efficient way to access multiple servers, computers, or other devices. It consists of a flat panel LCD, a keyboard, and a mouse, all of which are integrated into a compact and space-saving 19” 1U metal tray. LCD console trays include slides and mounting for installation in 19” racks or cabinets, which makes them easy to use and access. They consume minimal space and tuck into the rack when not in use. When needed, the user slides out the tray and keyboard drawer and tilts up the LCD creating a convenient workstation.
Benefits of LCD Console Trays
There are several benefits to using LCD console trays in a data center or server room. Some of these benefits include:
- Space-savings. LCD console trays take up much less space than traditional monitors and keyboards, which can help reduce clutter in the server room and free up valuable space in your server rack.
- Time-savings. With an LCD console tray, users can manage and control multiple servers or computers from a single station, saving time and increasing productivity.
- Increased efficiency. LCD console trays provide a streamlined way to manage and control multiple devices, improving efficiency and reducing errors.
- Enhanced Security. LCD Console Trays are designed with security in mind. They typically include password protection and remote access control, ensuring only authorized personnel can access your servers.
