PLANET ICS-11x Serial Device Server is specially designed to convert RS232, RS422 or RS485 serial communication to Fast Ethernet networking to extend the network distance efficiently and inexpensively.
It’s a time-saving and cost-effective solution for users and system integrators to quickly transform their serial devices into the Ethernet network with no need of replacing the existing serial devices and software system.
PLANET ICS-11x series provides easy serial-to-Ethernet connectivity and connection to a TCP/IP network, the remote network system can thus be managed efficiently via its Web, telnet, and VCOM management interfaces.
It supports both application and serial operation modes for alarm or IP address connection, which saves the network administrator's time in detecting and locating network problems without visual inspection of the cabling and devices. Multiple connection options are available for a large networking environment as well.
PLANET ICS-11x series can be used as a stand-alone unit or a slide-in module to PLANET Media Converter Chassis (MC-700 and MC-1500 chassis). The media chassis can assist in providing DC power to the ICS-11x series and can be DIN-rail or wall mounted for efficient use of cabinet space, without the need of replacing the existing serial equipment and software system.
