The USB advantage

The USB advantage

KVM over USB is a portable IT crash cart that lets you control machines that are in proximity of you. It connects to your computer or laptop by USB 3.0, and needs only one-time setup required on your local host, regardless of how many different servers and computers you control with it. KVM2USB 3.0 is the best portable laptop crash cart for managing compartmentalized LANs, DMZs or contaminated equipment without the need to make connections that expose other equipment and networks to a compromised machine.

Simple and portable IT crash cart

KVM2USB 3.0 is small and portable, making it easy to turn your laptop into a portable data center crash cart or manage equipment anywhere on your campus. And because there’s no software to install on your target computer, you can view and control any machine that can use a VGA, DVI, or HDMI monitor and a normal USB keyboard and mouse.

Simple and portable

Durable enclosure and reinforced connectors

Built to work every day, in any environment. KVM2USB 3.0 has an all-metal enclosure and reinforced connectors designed for repeated connections and daily use. With no moving parts, the device has exceptional reliability and nearly silent operation.

Install the Epiphan KVM Control Application on your host computer and it’s ready to view and control any other local server, computer, or machinery.
