Ethernet and internet connectionSANTA ANA, Calif., May 29, 2009 – The core of the third-generation iServer MicroServer manufactured by Newport Electronics Inc. is a 32-bit microprocessor that operates at 72 MHz. It provides a simple, easy and economical way to put anything on the network, without writing a single line of code, at speeds of up to 460 kb/s.
Any serial device (RS-232, RS-485) can be connected to an Ethernet LAN network or to the Internet in minutes, including Serial Modbus to Modbus TCP/IP over Ethernet. Microprocessor features include 10/100 Ethernet, a dynamic Web server, a full IP stack, Modbus protocol support, e-mail notifications, simple network management protocol traps for remote management, one to six programmable digital input/outputs, firmware upgrade over Ethernet, authentication and access restrictions for security.
Three versions are available. The embedded MicroServer is a printed circuit board-level model that allows OEMs to network-enable their products with an existing serial interface. The industrial MicroServer is available in polycarbonate enclosures and mounts on a standard DIN rail, and the wall-mount MicroServer is supplied with full documentation, firmware and an AC universal power adapter for most commercial and IT applications.
The company offers custom firmware and private labeling for OEMs.
The system can take a dynamically assigned IP address from a dynamic host configuration protocol server on a network, and a static IP address also can be assigned if necessary. The iServer connects to an Ethernet network via a standard RJ45 connector, and serial devices connect with a standard DB-9 connector. It is compatible with almost any device with a serial interface, including time clocks, security alarms, card-key access controllers, telecommunications equipment, vending machines, bar-code readers, electric power meters, test and measurement instrumentation, serial printers and cash registers.
The iServer can be used to make an existing serial device a “node” on an Ethernet network with a unique IP address that is accessible from any authorized computer on the LAN, WAN or Internet. It also can be used to create a virtual tunnel on an Ethernet/Internet network, simulating a local point-to-point connection between a serial device and a PC.
