X-keys XK-4 Stick for KVM Control

X-keys XK-4 Stick for KVM Control

X-keys XK-24 KVM Keypad

Optimized for controlling a KVM switch, these programmable keys can send any key combination or string of keystrokes, and lower operator error and training time. Anything an operator can do on a keyboard can be replicated and assigned to one clearly labeled key. Dedicated keys maximize efficiency and lower training time.

Please note: KVM version X-keys send pure USB HID keyboard codes and are intended for use only with hardware that does not have a traditional operating system behind it (like a KVM). If the X-keys will be connected directly to a Windows, OS X, or Linux computer, our standard X-keys products may be better suited to fit your requirements.
