- 1U 8-port Secure Device Server 100-240 VAC
The Evolution Device Servers (EDS) are 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 OS™, 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, these multi-port device servers can connect up to 8 RS-232 serial devices to your network in a matter of minutes. Using a unique method called “serial tunneling,” they encapsulate serial data from the device into packets to transport it over Ethernet.
Setup is a breeze with the included Windows-based DeviceInstaller™. The EDS can also be set up locally via a serial port, or remotely over a network using Telnet, a web browser or SNMP.
Cisco-like CLI – The EDS utilizes a Cisco-like 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 – 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 EDS 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 Developers’ Kit (SDK).
Lantronix Com Port Redirector™ software is included. It redirects application data destined for a local serial (COM) port on a PC to a serial port on the EDS. 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.
