Digi PortServer TS 8-16

PortServer TS 8-16 from Digi delivers simple, reliable and cost-effective network connectivity for multiple serial devices. RS-232 provides an easy connection to any serial device. The modem emulation allows existing modem-based applications to make connections over IP networks. The incorporated RealPort makes it possible to establish a connection between the host and networked serial device, allowing software applications to work with networked device servers instead of requiring a host adapter. The device also features SNMP management, SSH for creating secure IP network, port buffering and support for Windows and various flavours of UNIX.
