ICS Advent Introduces Space-Saving Flip-Top Monitor/ Keyboard Drawer

Compact, Lightweight and Features-Rich Design In One Rack Unit

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Oct. 23, 2000 - ICS AdventTM, the premier provider of business-critical applied computing solutions, today introduced the space-efficient, 1.75-inch high flip-top monitor/keyboard drawer. The RMX-1U15TFT is an integrated device that allows for highly efficient rack use. It features a 15.1-inch active matrix TFT LCD flat panel display that supports up to 1024 x 768 resolution. It offers a wide viewing angle (120 degrees or greater) and has high brightness (200 nits) and contrast ratios (200:1). It connects directly to a standard 15-pin VGA connector. The mini-input 88-key keyboard features a built-in PS/2 touchpad. The new flip-top monitor/keyboard drawer is available immediately in North America and is competitively priced at $2499.

During use, the RMX-1U15TFT unit slides out from the rack and the monitor flips up for display. When not in use, the monitor flips down and the unit slides back into the rack. The monitor is ENERGY Star¿ compliant and features a scratch-resistant plate, as well as a momentary switch, which is complementary with the monitor´s unique key locking front door that serves as an excellent feature for secured environments.

"We are pleased to offer a compact and efficient design with our next generation flip-top monitor/keyboard drawer," said John Du Pont, commodities product manager at ICS Advent. "The flip-top monitor/keyboard drawer´s affordable price makes it a viable and competitive solution in the marketplace."
