Thanks to the following for replies:

The cheapest solutions were from (suggested by Anand) and Raritan
thru CDW (suggested by Matthew). The NTI adapter was $65 USD and the Raritan
was $79.60 USD but it has a USB cable built-in to connect to the back of the
Sun Blade. You would have to supply your own for the NTI adapter.
