ConnectPort® TS 8/16 serial servers provide secure, easy EIA 232 or EIA 232/422/485 serial-to-Ethernet integration of virtually any device into wired Ethernet networks. They are ideal for use in a wide variety of demanding applications such as automation, robotics control, centralized device monitoring and management, data acquisition, and point -of-sale applications requiring COM/TTY ports, serial tunnelling or TCP/UDP functionality.
Enhanced access control, management and configuration capabilities support key security requirements for critical infrastructure and distributed systems. The built-in Python environment enables application development and customization at the device level, including full device connection control, data manipulation and event based actions.
Efficient configuration and management of the ConnectPort TS 8/16 is available through an integrated and secure web user interface as well as a powerful Command Line Interface option. SNMPv2 support provides simple device integration into centralized network management systems.
The ConnectPort TS implements Digi’s patented RealPort® COM port redirection software which provides local serial port functionality. The ConnectPort supports both host-initiated and device-initiated RealPort connection modes. SSH, SSL, TCP and UDP connectivity are also supported to each port.
Management of the device is possible through Digi Remote Manager®, web services, CLI and SNMP connectivity with mass configuration and customization tools available to pre- configure devices prior to deployment. The ConnectPort TS also supports USB connectivity for data logging or configuration loading.
