Mencom Serial Device Servers for legacy-devices integration

April 16, 2018 - Mencom Serial Device Servers are specifically designed to allow industrial devices to be directly accessible from the local network or even the Internet. Available in field-mount, din-rail mount or rack-mount versions from 1 up to 16 ports along with different Operation temperature/EMC variants, these serial device server series converts Ethernet to Serial port (RS-232, RS-485, RS-422). In addition, using the Serial Manager Software configuration tool enables VirtualCom on the computer via Ethernet or any other serial devices. Selected versions can also be provided in a programmable SDK version running Linux. 

\Mencom’ entry-level serial device servers provide 1 or 2-port RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 connectivity in a metal case with an optional 2kV magnetic isolation. These serial device servers are suitable for \ less demanding applications. They are available with a DB9 or a TB5 connector and selected versions are Industrial-EMC certified. With operating temperature range from 0 to 60 °C, the entry-level serial servers provide  Ethernet to Serial conversion.

To convert between serial to Ethernet where cabling installation is an issue, Mencom’s wireless device serial servers provide a solution with the combination of ethernet ports and terminal blocks/DB9 connectors. For selected versions which provide Industrial EMC compatibility, they support MIMO dual-antenna features and IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n and 3G/4G/HSPA connectivity.

Advanced/Industrial serial device servers are available in 1, 4 or 8/16 serial ports versions to provide the ultimate solution for the Ethernet to Serial conversion. Their wider operating temperature ranges are from -20 to +70 °C and up to -40 to +85°C with the industrial versions. They also feature enhanced EMC protection, Serial port isolation, and  CPUs to provide features and performance. PoE (Power over Ethernet) is available for selected industrial versions.
