      Convenient, Cost-Effective Solution for Your Network Connection Needs

      With Tripp Lite’s B078-101-USB-1, traditional KVM cables are a thing of the past. By using cost-effective Cat5e/6 cabling, the B078-101-USB-1 frees up space in your server cabinet and allows for increased ventilation, longer cable runs and greater savings. This server interface unit is needed to connect a USB server to Tripp Lite’s B070/B072-Series KVM switches.  

      Greater Distance—Greater Flexibility

      Using Cat5e/6 cabling allows your server to be located up to 100 ft. away from the KVM switch that controls it. By eliminating bulkier KVM cables, the B078-101-USB-1 allows cabling to run through conduit and other tight spaces, guaranteeing maximum flexibility when setting up your network application.

      Plug-and-Play Convenience

      With the B078-101-USB-1, there is no software or external power needed. Plug the USB and HD15 connectors into the server to be controlled, run the Cat5e/6 cabling to your KVM and you’re ready to go. The unit connects a server or computer with an HD15 connector for video and USB-type connectors for mouse and keyboard control to a KVM switch with Cat5e/6 (RJ45) connectors.  

      Innovative, Compact Design

      The B078-101-USB-1’s compact, lightweight design allows for flexibility when connecting it to a server or computer. The unit’s form factor allows it to fit in tight spaces and free up space where traditional KVM cabling might limit ventilation and accessibility.

      Three-Year Warranty and Environmentally Responsible Design

      The B078-101-USB-1 comes backed by a three-year warranty and is manufactured in compliance with strict RoHS specifications, reflecting Tripp Lite’s commitment to environmental responsibility.

      Founded in 1922 in Chicago, Illinois, Tripp Lite is a leading manufacturer of products to power, connect and protect your equipment. With a large selection of connectivity products, Tripp Lite has everything from USB hubs and reversible USB cables to fiber-optic cables and over Cat5e/Cat6 signal extenders. Whether you need to connect high-speed networks to switches, routers and servers in your data center, or send high-resolution video signals to displays and digital signs, Tripp Lite has the complete solution. Plus, before and after your purchase, our Chicago-based, in-house technical support specialists are available to assist you by phone, email and live chat. With over 90 years of quality products and service, Tripp Lite is a brand you can trust.

      The Tripp Lite NetCommander USB Server Interface Unit (SIU) connects to the HD15 port and USB port on a computer/server, and converts them to a single RJ45 connector. Ordinary Cat5e patch cables can then be used to connect the server to the switch ports on a Tripp Lite B070 / B072-Series NetCommander Cat5 KVM switch. Use of Cat5e cables frees up space in the installation that would ordinarily be filled by traditional, thicker KVM cables. Compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA) for GSA Schedule purchases.
