award 3

Advantech proudly introduces the EKI-1500 series of Serial Device Servers, which allows RS-232/422/485 serial devices to be remotely monitored, managed and controlled over Ethernet and IP networks. Equipped with Dual 10/100Base-TX Ethernet ports and dual Media Access Controllers (MACs), these innovative devices ensure data transmission even in the event of a network link failure.
* Simultaneous Dual-LAN Redundancy
With redundant Ethernet connections, communication is not interrupted in the event of a network problem. Users can establish 2 physical networks, one for the primary connection, and the other as a backup host that can connect to the device servers directly when the primary connection fails. The 2 Ethernet ports can also be set to two different networking domains to support various network applications.
* Advanced Multi-Access Functionality
The EKI-1500 series offer a number of conventional operating modes that allow connections to be initiated by either attached serial devices or remote Ethernet hosts using both UDP/IP and TCP/IP protocols.
* Maximum Throughput with Exceptional Data Transmission
Each of the COM ports on the EKI-1500 series provides 921K-baud technology with a throughput up to 1.2 Mbps, fulfilling high data transmission needs.
The EKI-1500 series are available in two form factors; EKI-1521/1522/1524 are compact DIN-rail modules with dual 12~48 VDC power inputs, while the EKI-1528/1526 are standard 1U rackmount size with AC power 100~240VDC.
