NPort 5450 device servers can conveniently and transparently connect up to four serial devices to an Ethernet, allowing you to network your existing serial devices with only basic configuration. Data transmission between the serial and Ethernet interfaces is bidirectional. By using NPort device servers, you not only protect your current hardware investment, but also allow for future network expansion. You can both centralize management of your serial devices and distribute management hosts over the network.
NPort 5450 device servers can be used to connect different devices for remote data polling, event handling, or data multicasting over the TCP/IP network. Each serial port on the NPort 5450 device server operates independently, allowing maximum versatility. For example, port 1 can operate in Driver mode, port 2 in TCP Server mode, and ports 3 and 4 in TCP client mode.
A control panel is provided on NPort 5400 device servers, with four buttons for inputting data, configuration, and selecting the operation mode. The control panel displays the server name, serial number, and IP address, and can be used to enter or modify parameters such as IP address, netmask, or gateway.
NPort 5450 device servers supports redundant power sources and provides both a DC terminal block input and a DC power jack input. The two power inputs not only provide power redundancy, but also allow greater flexibility for use with different applications.
