ATEN Launches KVM Switches with Antimicrobial Nanocoating

September 10, 2007 - Aten Technology Inc. unveiled the first LCD KVM (keyboard/video/mouse) switches to feature a antimicrobial nanocoating.
Aten specializes in KVM switches and remote connectivity products to centrally manage servers, network devices and IT infrastructure.
The average desk harbors 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat, and some of the most germ-contaminated items include the keyboard and mouse, according to a study conducted by the University of Arizona. Despite this fact, network administrators rarely have time to clean their desktops, which can lead to the spread of bacteria in the data center.
The company has designed the new nanocoated KVM switches to serve the needs of network administrators who operate in clean room environments such as hospitals, laboratories, manufacturing facilities. The special nanocoating uses two mechanisms to deactivate enzymes and proteins of bacteria from surviving on the surface of the product.
The KL9108M and KL9116M Hideaway LCD consoles are IP-based KVM control units that allow both local and remote operators to monitor and access multiple computers from multiple consoles. A single KL9108M or KL9116M can control up to eight and 16 computers and can be accessed from any computer via a Web browser. These nanocoated models are priced at $3,196 and $3700, respectively.
The KL1116L and KL1116M Hideaway LCD KVM Switch is a 16-port KVM unit that allows access to multiple computers from a single 15 or 17-inch LCD console. The nanocoated models are priced at $2,500 for the KL1116L, and $2,600 for the KL1116M.
KL3116M is a rackmounted 17-inch LCD keyboard, video, mouse, peripheral (KVMP) switch that features an extra local console port, USB peripheral sharing technology, and an external mouse port. The KL3116 is a 16-port switch that can monitor up to 16 computers in a 1U-high configuration. The KL3116M with nanocoating technology costs $3,000.
