The Draco tera compact (with 8, 16, 32, 48, 64 and 80 ports) is a matrix switch especially suited for small and medium installations. With fiber optic and Cat-X connections as well as hybrid versions for both module types, it offers high performance at an attractive price.

Compact KVM matrix switch

Draco tera compact (Series 480c)

The Draco tera compact switch with its form factor of max. two 19” rack units is specifically designed for smaller and mid-sized KVM requirements using the same technology found in the larger Draco tera enterprise matrix systems. Based on a small footprint package, the cost-effective frame can be used with all of the Draco extender modules creating the world’s widest selection of KVM solutions. It is a simple operation to set up and configure the matrix with the On-Screen Display (OSD) or through the feature-enhanced Draco tera Tool.

Extenders can accommodate a variety of signal formats and the Draco tera compact auto-senses the individual units through any available port on the chassis. By simply connecting the extender to the chassis, the internal firmware will recognize and auto-configure the port as a CPU or console device. This Flex-Port technology provides a huge time saving for system installers who normally have to pre-configure ports to specific I/O requirements. The system includes instant switching technology for all the popular formats up to 4K resolutions at 60 Hz and 10 bit color depth (4:4:4).

With incredible speed, switching between sources is glitch-free and instantaneous thus reducing eye strain and annoying video tearing found with other systems. With the small footprint and ruggedized chassis design, the Draco tera compact is the perfect KVM space-saving solution where centralized switching of KVM is necessary. It is especially suited for factory floor automation control systems, production studios, OB Vans, and command and control environments.
