P/n 520-376-509

In good condition and full working order

Console and Power Supply Only



The Dell™ PowerEdge™ 180AS console switch allows administrators to easily monitor and control multiple servers locally or remotely, featuring:

  • Eight ports
  • Control up to 64 servers over a single connection
  • Efficient design that enables 0U mounting in a Dell rack

The console switches come with a choice of two Server Interface Pods (SIPs) — PS/2 or USB — to fit a variety of server needs. A SIP replaces a bulky KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) cable by converting the keyboard, monitor and mouse signals from a server and driving them up to 15 meters (50 feet) through a single Category 5 (CAT 5) cable. The SIP cable draws its power from the server and has a Keep Alive functionality that is designed to keep the server working properly with or without connectivity to the unit.

The switches enable cross-platform management using the On-Screen Configuration and Activity Reporting (OSCAR®) interface. With the OSCAR interface, administrators can easily configure the switch system and select the different servers. Computers can be identified by unique name, electronic ID (EID) or port number, allowing users to assign unique server names.

An optional accessory to these units is the Dell Port Expansion Module (PEM), which is a passive device that can be mounted next to the railing of the rack. A PEM connects to one system port on the switch and then eight servers. With a PEM connected to each of the eight ports on the 180AS, the total system capacity of a 180AS expands to 64 total servers.

Other highlights include:

  • Connectivity — features intelligent analog ports
  • Flash upgradeable — designed for future hardware compatibility
  • Flexibility — provides access and control of multiple servers from a single screen
  • Integration — works with wireless KVM (local port extension) and KVM over IP (cascading/tiering)
  • Scalability — grows with an expanding IT environment
  • Space-efficient design — occupies 0U in a Dell rack
  • CAT 5 cabling — reduces cable bulk
