The Draco tera compact with 8 ports is a matrix switch especially suited for small and medium installations. With fiber optic and Cat-X connections it offers high performance at an attractive price.

Compact KVM matrix switch

Draco tera compact (Series 480c)

The Draco tera compact switch is specifically designed for smaller KVM requirements using the same technology found in the larger Draco tera enterprise switch systems. Sized to support 8
ports, these models are offered in Cat X, fiber, fiber XV or universal combinations to switch. Based on a small footprint package, the cost effective frame can be used with all of the Draco extender
modules creating one of 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 featureenhanced
Draco tera tool. Extenders 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 connected the extender to the chassis, the internal control software 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 and including 2560 x 2048 at 50/60Hz, 4K and Deep Color resolutions. 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
space-constrained installations such as OB vans, small studios, training rooms or yachts.

For medium and large applications we recommend our Draco tera flex KVM matrix switch series with its compact size of 1, 2 or 4RU and up to 160 flex ports and for safety-critical installations our Draco tera enterprise KVM matrix series with up to 48, 80, 160, 288 and 576 ports – each freely definable as inputs or outputs.
