The NPort IA5000A device servers deliver easy and reliable serial-to-Ethernet connectivity for the industrial automation market. The servers support several operation modes—TCP Server, TCP Client, UDP, Real COM, RFC2217, Reverse Telnet, Pair Connection, and Ethernet Modem—ensuring the compatibility of network software, and are an ideal choice for connecting RS-232/422/485 serial devices, such as PLCs, sensors, meters, motors, drives, barcode readers, and operator displays. The NPort IA5000A device servers come with a compact casing and a DIN-Rail mounting kit.
Moxa's MiiNePort E3 series embedded device servers are designed for manufacturers who want to add sophisticated network connectivity to their serial devices with minimal integration effort. The MiiNePort E3 is empowered by the MiiNe, Moxa's second generation SoC, which supports 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, up to 921.6 Kbps serial baudrate, a versatile selection of ready-to-use operation modes, and requires only a small amount of power. By using Moxa's innovative NetEZ technology, the MiiNePort E3 can be used to convert any device with a standard serial interface to an Ethernet enabled device in no time. In addition, the MiiNePort E3 is a compact embedded device server with an RJ45 connector, making it easy to fit into virtually any existing serial device.
The NPort® S8458 series combines an industrial device server with a full-function managed Ethernet switch by integrating 4 fiber ports, 4 Ethernet ports, and 4 RS-232/422/485 serial ports, allowing you to easily install, manage, and maintain the product. Combining a device server and switch in one product allows you to save space in your cabinet, reduce overall power consumption, and reduce costs, since you will not need to purchase a switch and serial device server separately.
The ICF-1150 series support 2 serial ports, with a D-sub connector for RS-232 communication and a removable terminal block for RS-422 or RS-485 communication. The 3 ports (2 serial ports and one fiber port) are completely independent. When an ICF-1150 converter receives data from any one port, it will send the data out through the other 2 ports. The RS-485 interface supports multi-drop or daisy-chain connections, which system engineers will use to connect serial devices such as meters, RTUs, and readers together on the same bus.
