We got standard 19-inch server racks and have the requirement to rack KVMs on the top U level.
A common issue we got is that due to the build of the server rack (little "roof" on the top) when you pull the KVM out of the rack and open the screen, it is unable to open to the maximum (it's at about 80 degrees)
To better understand I made this awesome picture:
Black: server rack viewed from the side
Red: KVM rails
BLUE/GREEN: KVM screen
As you can see you can't fully expand the screen, you kinda have to duck down to see the image on the screen properly.
We can't change the server rack, and we prefer not to order KVM with custom made rails for reasons that are too long to explain here. I am wondering if there's a way to use a 3rd party device that will act like a rail extension and will allow us to pull the KVM even further.
Many thanks for your advice!!
