Emerson / Avocent DS1800 Digital Switching System

  • KVM Connectivity Using Ordinary Network Connections
  • Eliminates Distance Limitations
  • Provides Access to an Unlimited Number of Servers
  • Connects Directly to KVM Signals on Any Computer


The DS1800 digital solution provides secure, non-blocked KVM connections to virtually any number of servers using a standard LAN connection. Operators can connect to servers no matter where they are located with performance that meets the requirements of both local and remote operators. Because the DS1800 leverages industry standard LAN equipment, complex wired configurations are no longer necessary. All of the analog KVM signals are converted in real time to digital form and transported using standard Ethernet protocols. This design allows for your future growth needs without complex reconfiguration.

Computers can be connected directly to the DS1800 or to attached AutoView 200/400 and OutLook KVM switches for a single additional tier of attached servers. The total number of concurrent users in the system is limited only by the number of available network ports.

No special software or drivers are required on the attached, or host, computers. Users access the DS1800 and all attached systems via Ethernet from a PC running the DSView software program. This software resides on the user PC. User PCs can be located anywhere a valid network connection exists. The DS1800 can be configured on a separate network “out of band” of your data network, allowing access to your servers even if your applications network is down.

Product Family: DS1800, DS-1800, DS 1800

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
