Up to 64 Ports, RS232 Serial to Ethernet, Terminal Server/Client


IP Electronix PH-DUP3017 Terminal Server/Client is a simple solution for connecting serial devices to a network which results in having up to 64 RS232 serial ports over Ethernet network. This converter uses transparent communicate protocol, so it is not required to understand complex Ethernet TCP/IP protocol, and no modification in serial programs is needed. It operates as a Real COM, TCP Server, TCP Client, UDP Server and UDP Client Full-Duplex converter and supports bidirectional connection.

PH-DUP3017 is designed for industrial usage and is useful for connecting any device with a serial interface to a computer via Ethernet supported network like LAN, WAN … and can be used in Industrial Automation, Telecommunications, SCADA Systems, DCS Systems ….

Protection against Surge, ESD and EMI is implemented in its design and it has 3kV isolation between Ethernet and RS232 sides.

PH-DUP3017 consists of a power supply card and a number of terminal server cards. Each server terminal card is actually an PH232Ex8 converter, as described below.
