The SlimLine 1U and SlimLine Lite II series cleverly combine a flip-up LCD monitor, keyboard and pointing device in one unit and are the perfect complement to General Digital’s other innovative, rack-mount products. Optimized for its ultra-low profile (1.75 inches high), the SlimLine 1U is designed to save valuable rack space and expense by providing a reliable and user-friendly operator interface. It is also designed to meet industrial and MIL-STD-810E and TEMPEST Level 2 requirements.

Many are NEMA4 / NEMA12 sealed and meet MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-901D and MIL-STD-167B shock and vibration requirements. The pointing device for most keyboards is a 1-3/8 inch, durable, sealed trackball. Available keyboard-trackball interfaces are PS/2, PC and Sun USB, and Sun Type 5 (8-pin Mini DIN).
