KVM Drawer - Not for Use in the Bedroom If you are new to the technology world or a procurement specialist constantly bombarded with acronyms used in descriptions for computer hardware, you may be wondering what the heck a KVM drawer is and why your onsite computer service team is ordering one. These drawers arent intended to store socks, underwear, or silverware, but are an economical solution used in the computer room. Stick with this brief article and youll know exactly what a KVM drawer is used for and what those mysterious initials mean. First, the "KVM" in KVM drawer equates to keyboard, video, mouse. This device is a keyboard drawer that usually includes a monitor and touchpad or trackball type mouse device. These are very low profiles devices. In fact the display folds down and lies flat stored in back of the keyboard/mouse area. These devices are available in 17, 19 and 20-inch screen sizes accommodating even the larger monitors. The KVM drawer is mounted inside a server rack or cabinet. The entire unit is housed in a heavy duty aluminum or metal framework. Heavy duty ball bearings allow for smooth sliding of the keyboard, video display and mouse tray back into the rack. Sometimes a KVM drawer is referred to as a rackmount keyboard drawer or a 1U rackmount keyboard. The drawer is only about 1.75-inches tall, or 1U, in computer "techno-speak". The term 1U means 1 unit, which is a unit of measurement used in sizing and distributing equipment within a computer rack or server cabinet. The 1U KVM drawer is the most frequently rack accessory. These devices are favored because their small form factor frees up space for other pieces of equipment that typically are stored in a server rack. They are lightweight and compatible across multiple hardware platforms. This piece of hardware is designed in a manner so that when an administrator opens the rack or cabinet door, she can pull out the tray housing the keyboard, display and trackball. The display lifts up for viewing. In some cases the display can remain in upright position even after the cabinet drawer is closed. This allows the administrator to monitor system vitals without opening the cabinet door again. The KVM drawer is often used in conjunction with an integrated KVM switch. This is a multi-port device that allows one keyboard, display, and mouse to control multiple computer systems. This offers additional savings inside the server cabinet as fewer displays are required to support more computer systems.
Removing File Cabinet Drawers Removing a file cabinet drawer will be a frustrating experience for you. What should be an easy task often ends up with you sweating; cursing and wrenching the drawer in ways that you are sure are not good for your cabinet. With a little help and guidance, you will be able to remove the drawers from just about any file cabinet. Read this following information carefully. Step 1 The first step is that you have to open the drawer you want to remove all the way. Then look on each side of the drawer for a plastic tab or lever within the metal slides. Step 2 Release the drawer from the slides. You can doing by pressing up or down on the tabs, lifting up on the drawer and then pulling the drawer next to you. Admittedly, it can be hard to do all at one time. So, get someone to help you. Have your helper depress the tabs while you maneuver the drawer; you have to be careful to not smash his or her fingers. Step 3 Remove those drawers with no lever or tab in the slides. You can do this by opening the drawer fully, and then lifting and pulling on the drawer. Step 4 The next step is that you can remove the contents of the drawer when you are difficulty to remove the drawer. Often taking the weight out of the drawer will do the trick, and the drawer that just would not come out slides out easily the first time once you have taken everything out. Step 5 For the last step, you should move the drawer around at slightly different angles in order to get it to release, but do not twist it to too far or you may bend the mechanism or the drawer itself. This will only make it even harder to remove.
