ICP Australia is proud to introduce ICP DAS’s tDS-718-T, which 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. By using the VxComm Driver/Utility, the built-in COM port of the tDS-700 series can be virtualized to a standard PC COM port in Windows. Therefore, users can transparently access or monitor serial devices over the Internet/Ethernet without software modification.
The tDS-718-T servers can be used to create a pair-connection application (as well as serial-bridge or serial-tunnel), and can then route data over TCP/IP between two serial devices, which is useful when connecting mainframe computers, servers, or other serial devices that do not themselves have Ethernet capability. By its protocol independence and flexibility, the tDS-718-T meets the demands of virtually any network-enabled application.
Lastly, the tDS-718-T is designed for ultra-low power consumption, reducing hidden costs from increasing fuel and electricity prices, especially when you have a huge amount of device servers installed. Reducing the amount of electricity consumed by choosing energy-efficient equipment can have a positive impact on maintaining a green environment.
