Digi One IA Din Rail Mounted serial server provides reliable, cost-effective network connectivity for serial devices. This unobtrusive and easy- to-use serial server delivers serial-to-Ethernet connectivity to Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), bar-code readers and other industrial devices.
Digi One IA supports most industrial automation protocols through TCP/UDP connections, serial bridging or COM port redirection using Digi’s patented RealPort® software. RealPort enables existing applications to communicate with serial devices over the Ethernet. By creating a Modbus bridge, multiple Modbus/TCP masters can share Modbus serial slaves, or Modbus serial masters can access Modbus/TCP slaves.
Digi One IA Din Rail Mounted serial server is easy to install locally or remotely. The IP address can be configured using DHCP, ARP-Ping or Setup, an application included with the installation CD that detects Digi One devices on the network. Using the web interface, users can configure advanced functions into their application.
Benefits of Digi One IA Din Rail Mounted serial server:
