Device servers and gateways

Use device servers to convert serial interfaces such as RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 to other standards, such as Ethernet (RJ45), with protocol transparency. Gateways and protocol converters convert various fieldbus and Ethernet protocols (e.g., PROFIBUS to PROFINET), thus enabling the easy integration of legacy serial devices and fieldbuses into modern Ethernet networks.

  • Embedded web server allows easy startup and configuration
  • Can be used in any industry with the wide operating temperature range (-40°C ... +70°C) and approval for hazardous areas
  • Minimal space required in the control cabinet due to the compact shape and size
  • The 256-bit AES encryption and authentication mechanisms prevent unauthorized access to the devices
  • The user can troubleshoot problems quickly and easily with the extended diagnostic functions of the serial ports
  • Seamless integration of virtual COM ports due to native Windows drivers ensures consistently high performance, especially for multi-port applications.
