8 or 16-Port RS232 Device Server with Liquid-Crystal Display 8 or 16 RS-232 ports (RJ-45) Liquid Crystal Display for IP address display Standard 19-inch rack-mountable Auto-detecting 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Interface Surge protection on all serial signals (15KV ESD) TCP Server, TCP Client, UDP & Real COM Modes Windows Real COM drivers with automatic network connection recovery Linux Real TTY drivers Supports web and telnet consoles SNMP MIB-II for network management 90 – 260VAC Operation
Make up to 16 RS-232 Serial Devices Internet Ready
NPort 5610 provides a convenient and transparent way for Ethernet connection that not only protects your current hardware investment, but also ensures future network expandability. Perform some simple configuration tasks, and you'll be ready to network your existing serial devices. Moreover, NPort 5610 can transparently transmit data bi-directionally between the serial and Ethernet interfaces. By using NPort 5610, you can centralize serial device management and distribute the management hosts at the same time.
19-in Rackmount Device Server
NPort 5610 has a professional cabinet design, with Tx/Rx LEDs for all ports on the front panel, and the 8/16 RS-232 RJ45 connectors on the rear panel.This makes NPort 5610 suitable for standard 19-inch rack mounting, simplifying operation, maintenance, and administration.
Real COM/TTY Port
After installing the real COM/tty driver, which comes with NPort 5610, the serial ports on NPort 5610 are recognized as Real COM ports by the Windows operating system, or real tty ports by Linux environments. NPort provides both the basic transmit/receive data functions, as well as RTS, CTS, DTR, DSR, and DCD control signals.
Useful LED Indicators
The System LED, Serial Tx/Rx LEDs, and Ethernet LED on the connector help field engineers analyze field problems, and provide a simple way to ease monitoring tasks. NPort 5610's LEDs not only indicate current system and network status, but also assist the field engineer in monitoring the status of attached serial devices.
