Belkin Releases TAA-Compliant 19-Inch Widescreen Rack-Mount Console


(Playa Vista, CA) - - Belkin today announced the release of its Trade Agreement Act (TAA) compliant 19-inch Widescreen Rack-Mount Console. In addition, Belkin’s 19-inch Widescreen Rack-Mount Console has also been awarded ENERGY STAR certification, making it the first product of its kind with the certification. With its innovative, easy-to-use design, Belkin’s Widescreen Rack-Mount Console simplifies government users’ IT duties while reducing energy consumption.

The Trade Agreement Act requires U.S. governmental agencies to purchase, when available, products manufactured in the United States or other TAA-compliant countries. TAA compliance is also a requirement for listing on the GSA and other purchasing contracts. Belkin currently has more than 250 products on the GSA schedule including TAA-compliant Secure KVM switches, cables, and surge-protection devices.

“Due to budgetary restrictions within the government, IT administrators are often forced to rely on clunky, less-efficient consoles with limited features and difficult installation processes,” said Luis Artiz, director of product management at Belkin. “However, Belkin’s new TAA-compliant Widescreen Rack Console was designed with real-world usage in mind, offering simplified deployment, ease-of-use, and reduced energy consumption.”

Belkin’s 19-inch Widescreen Rack-Mount Console has met the energy efficiency requirements set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency. ENERGY STAR is a government-backed symbol for energy efficiency helping agencies and consumers protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices. Additionally, products designated as ENERGY STAR save money for agencies by reducing the amount of energy needed and consumed.

Belkin’s TAA-compliant 19-inch Widescreen Rack-Mount Console’s features assist federal IT administrators in these major categories:


o No bracket configuration required

o Simplified rail design with adjustable rails

o Built-in power supply—eliminates external-power-supply cable clutter

o Compatible with standard 19-inch cabinets, racks, and system configurations

o Built-in 8- or 16-port KVM option


o Easy-to-grip handle design to fit anyone

o Uses automatic locks rather than finger-release triggers


o High-resolution, ultra-slim, 19-inch widescreen LCD

o Ideal for applications that require a larger viewing space

o View multiple virtual machines at once

o View multiple documents side-by-side


o First rack-mount console to receive ENERGY STAR compliance

o Lessens impact on the environment

“Belkin’s new TAA-compliant 19-Inch Rack-Mount Console fits the needs of government agencies while reducing energy consumption,” said Marty Bauerlein, vice president, VAR sales at Tech Data Corporation. “We’re excited to add the new console to our offering in the channel.”

Belkin’s TAA-compliant 19-inch Widescreen Rack-Mount Console is now available through Belkin’s network of authorized channel partners.
