The NPort 5400 Series provides a convenient and transparent way to connect serial devices to an Ethernet, with basic configuration all that's needed to network your existing serial devices. Protect your current hardware investment, but also ensure future network expandability. Moreover, the NPort 5400 series can transparently transmit data bi-directionally between the serial and Ethernet interfaces.You can simultaneously centralize your serial device management and distribute management hosts over the network.
Easy-to-use Serial Device Server
The built-in LCM human-machine interface displays all configuration parameters,and includes 4 buttons for inputting data, or for selecting the operation mode, making it easy to set up server parameters, including IP address, netmask, and gateway address. Furthermore, you can also monitor server status and data transmission, eliminating the need to prepare additional PCs during installation.
Real COM/TTY Port
The NPort 5400 Series works like an add-on multiport serial board to the Windows host, but with one major advantage—the TCP/IP network. With NPort's Real COM/TTY drivers, the serial ports on NPort 5400 series products are recognized as Real COM ports by the Windows operating system, or Real TTY ports by Linux environments. Basic transmit/receive data functions are provided, as well as RTS, CTS, DTR, DSR, and DCD (input) control signals.
4 Independent Serial Ports Can be Configured for Different Operation Modes
Versatile operation is ensured since different modes can be used for different serial ports. NPort 5400 Series products are suitable for connnecting different devices for remote data polling, event handling, or data multicasting via the TCP/IP network. For example, you can configure NPort 5400's port 1 for driver mode, port 2 for TCP server mode, and ports 3 and 4 for TCP client mode.
