SKU 4886

The tDS-718i is a Serial-to-Ethernet device server that is designed to add Ethernet and Internet connectivity to any RS-232 and RS-422/485 device, and to eliminate the cable length limitation of legacy serial communication. It can be easily used for remote controlling of your serial devices through Ethernet network.

By using the VxComm Driver/Utility, the built-in COM port of the tDS-718i can be virtualized to a standard PC COM port in Windows. Most serial devices don’t have network ports; tDS-718i is able to add network connectivity to those devices. Therefore, users can transparently access or monitor serial devices over the Internet/Ethernet without software modification.

The tDS-718i also adds 3000 VDC isolation and +/-4 kV ESD protection component that diverts the potentially damaging charge away from sensitive circuit to protects the module and equipment from the sudden and momentary electric current.
