The modular I/O port design allows a tiny PC like Pocket 3 to adapt well in different use cases (by swapping between different expansion modules). The serial port expansion module of Pocket 3 uses the standard EIA RS-232 communication protocol and can connect to various 9-pin serial devices.

The single KVM port control module for Pocket 3 can be used to access and control another computer for system and network device management.

It integrates HDMI IN and USB IN ports, so you only need an HDMI cable or HDMI to VGA cable to connect Pocket 3 to the targeted server and fully control the server through the Pocket 3's own keyboard and mouse.

 

Unlike "remote desktop", the KVM control module is used for hardware-level access control covering the entire use process of the targeted server, from booting, BIOS settings to operations within the OS.

It is hot-swappable but has no IP KVM, so it does not support remote management and is suitable for managing local network equipment that has no keyboard, mouse and display.

Note:

KVM compatible OS: Windows, Linux, Unix, macOS

KVM compatible hardware: General server, dedicated server, soft router, NAS

KVM compatible applications: Information control center, call center, securities/financial trading system, industrial control, teaching, bank data center, test center
