The NPort 5200 serial device servers are designed to make your industrial serial devices Internet-ready in no time. The compact size of NPort 5200 serial device servers makes them the ideal choice for connecting your RS-232 (NPort 5210/5230/5210-T/5230-T) or RS-422/485 (NPort 5230/5232/ 5232I/5230-T/5232-T/5232I-T) serial devices—such as PLCs, meters, and sensors—to an IP-based Ethernet LAN, making it possible for your software to access serial devices from anywhere over a local LAN or the Internet. The NPort 5200 Series has a number of useful features, including standard TCP/IP protocols and choice of operation modes, Real COM/TTY drivers for existing software, and remote control of serial devices with TCP/IP or traditional COM/TTY Port.
NPort 5200 device servers can operate in TCP Server, TCP Client, or UDP operation mode, ensuring compatibility with software based on a standard network API (Winsock, BSD Sockets).
