- port Secure Device Server 100-240 VAC
EDS16PR device server is ideal for remotely monitoring and managing serial-based equipment in diverse applications such as retail/POS, medical, security telecommunications, industrial and building automation.
Featuring Evolution OSâ„¢, our powerful real-time networking operating system, they deliver an unprecedented level of intelligence and security to networked equipment. With these innovative, versatile products, multiple electronic devices can become secure members of the corporate network that can be accessed and managed from virtually anywhere, at any time.
Without requiring any special software, this multi-port device server can connect up to 16 RS-232 serial devices to your network in a matter of minutes. Using a unique method called â€œserial tunneling,â€ they encapsulate serial data from the device into packets to transport it over Ethernet.
Setup is a breeze with the included Windows-based DeviceInstallerâ„¢. The EDS16PR can also be set up locally via a serial port, or remotely over a network using Telnet, a web browser or SNMP.
Evolution OS provides a â€˜data center-gradeâ€™ level of protection so each device on the network carries the same level of security as IT equipment in your corporate data center. The EDS16PR features robust defenses to hostile Internet attacks such as denial of service (DoS) and port mapping that could be used to take down your network. The hardened OS and mature protocol stack prevent the device servers from being used to bring down other devices on the network. And with built-in AES, SSH and SSL, they provide robust key management algorithms that:
Verify that any data received came from the proper source
Validate that data transferred from the source over the network is unchanged when it arrives at its destination
Provide the ability to run popular M2M protocols over a secure SSH or AES connection
With SSH and SSL, they support a variety of popular cipher technologies including 128/256/512/1024-bit AES (Rijndael), 3DES and RC4 Encryption Public/Private keys and hashing algorithms such as SHA-1 and MD5. HTTP authentication uses Base-64, Digest Authentication and SSL.
Cisco-like CLI â€“ The EDS16PR utilizes a Ciscolike command line interface (CLI) with syntax very similar to that used by data center equipment such as routers and hubs. This industry-standard tool simplifies configuration and control, making it easier to integrate edge devices or data center equipment into the enterprise network.
XML-based Architecture â€“ XML is a standard tool for web services, data transfer and rich content management that encapsulates data into a text-based format. XML-based configuration and setup records in the EDS16PR make device configuration transparent and easily modified with a standard text or XML editor.
Eight MB of Flash memory provides maintenance-free, nonvolatile storage of web pages, and enables future system software upgrades. Featuring a 32-bit XScale processor and 32MB of RAM, these device servers are highly customizable with the Evolution OS Software Developersâ€™ Kit (SDK). A free compiler is available.
Lantronix Com Port Redirectorâ„¢ software is included. It redirects application data destined for a local serial (COM) port on a PC to a serial port on the EDS16PR. Data sent from the equipment to the device server is transmitted back to the application over the network. Com Port Redirector then presents the data to the application as if it were from a local serial COM port.
