Serial Device Servers are devices designed especially for connection of the industrial serial devices directly to the Ethernet network.
There exist various models with different number of RS-232/422/485 serial ports, with isolation and overvoltage protection, power supply protection, and extended temperature range.
In order to operate more effectively the serial interface servers consider the specific characteristics of the application fields, which are as follows:
- Oil and gas industry
- Railway industry
- Power industry
- Intellectual transport systems
- Extraction industry
- Industrial automation
- Marine environments
Functionality of servers of serial interfaces
- They allow to transmit data from different serial devices via Ethernet or wireless network.
- It is possible to choose modular equipment with modifiable amount of ports, conformal PC-boards coating, models with extended temperature operation range and back-up power source, as well as devices conforming to specific field standards.
The industrial serial interface servers enable the smooth transition from serial interfaces to rapidly developing Ethernet technology. Due to the fact that the main part of the equipment still works with RS-232/422/485 protocols, the serial interfaces converters will remain active within many years and stay in high remand on the industrial communication market. The serial interface servers’ product line includes various models with wide range of ports, from compact units with low energy consumption, DIN-rail design units, to 19’’ inch rail mount devices. This secures both flexibility and reliability.
