Overview

Compared to other NPort IA device servers, the NPort IA5000A series device servers have a more rugged design with respect to housing, connectors, mounting methods, and surge protection. The NPort IA5000A series is not only hardware upgrade, but in addition, the device server's software tools are more versatile and user-friendly.

 

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.

 

Cascading Ethernet Ports Make Wiring Easy (10/100BaseTX models only)

The NPort IA5000 series device servers each have two Ethernet ports that can be used as Ethernet switch ports. One port connects directly to the network or server, and the other port can be connected to another NPort IA device server or another Ethernet device. The dual Ethernet ports help reduce wiring costs by eliminating the need to connect each device to a separate Ethernet switch.

 

Redundant Power Inputs

The NPort IA5000A series device servers have two power inputs that can be connected simultaneously to live DC power sources. If one power source fails, the other source takes over automatically. Redundant power inputs help assure that your device server will operate non-stop.

 

Relay Output Warning and E-mail Alerts

The built-in relay output can be used to alert administrators of problems with the Ethernet links or power inputs, or when there is a change in the DCD or DSR serial signals. The web console indicates which Ethernet link or power input has failed, or which serial signal has changed. An e-mail warning can also be issued when an exception is detected. These functions are valuable tools that enable maintenance engineers to react promptly to emergency situations.

 

Surge Protection for Serial, LAN, and Power

The NPort IA5000A device servers are designed to operate in harsh industrial environments, and since both communication signals power lines are surge protected, the device servers are well-suited for use in oil and gas, and power automation applications.

 

Industrial-grade Certification

To ensure safe and reliable operation in industrial environments, the NPort IA5000A device servers have obtained various industrial certifications, including an IP30 rating for mechanical protection, UL508 safety certification for industrial control equipment, and explosion-safe certifications for hazardous locations. Certifications include UL/cUL Class 1 Division 2 Groups A, B, C, D, and ATEX Class 1 Zone 2.
