Digi One® IA - Ethernet Enable Any Industrial Service Device
The Digi One IA serial server provides reliable, cost-effective network connectivity for virtually any serial device. This unobtrusive and easy-to-use device server delivers serial-to-Ethernet connectivity to Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), process and quality equipment, bar-code readers and other industrial devices.
Digi One IA supports most industrial automation protocols through TCP/UDP connections, serial bridging or COM port redirection using Digi’s patented RealPort® software. RealPort enables existing applications to communicate, without modification, with serial devices over the Ethernet. By creating a Modbus bridge, multiple Modbus/TCP masters can share Modbus serial slaves, or Modbus serial masters can access Modbus/TCP slaves.
Digi One IA serial servers are easy to install locally or remotely. The IP address can be configured using DHCP, ARP-Ping or Setup, an application included with the installation CD that automatically detects Digi One devices on the network. Using the web interface, users can configure advanced functions into their application.
