EKI-1528I
8-port RS-232/422/485 Serial Device Server - Wide Temp., AC Input, DB9, Rackmount

  • Provides 2 x 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet ports for LAN redundancy
  • Supports up to 976.5 kbps, and any baud rate setting
  • Standard 1U rackmount size
  • Provides COM port redirection (Virtual COM), TCP and UDP operation modes
  • Built-in buzzer for easy location
  • Provides rich configuration methods: Windows utility, Telnet console, Web Browser, and serial console
  • SNMP MIB-II for network management
  • Built-in 15 KV ESD protection for all serial signals
  • 8 or 16-port RS-232/422/485 serial communication
The EKI-1528 and EKI-1526 are industrial-grade network-based serial device servers for connecting up to 8 or 16 serial RS-232/422/485 devices, such as CNCs, PLCs, scales and scanners, directly to a TCP/IP network. The EKI-1528 and EKI-1526 feature two independent Ethernet ports and MAC addresses to provide a redundant network mechanism to guarantee Ethernet network reliability. The EKI-1528 and EKI-1526 provide a simple and cost-effective way to bring the advantages of remote management and data accessibility to thousand of devices that can't connect to an Ethernet network. The EKI-1528 and EKI-1526 offer multiple ways to configure through Windows utility, Web Browser, serial console or Telnet console, these methods make it easy manage many EKI-1528 and EKI-1526 or serial devices on your network.
