NPort 5100 series device servers are designed to make your industrial serial devices Internet ready instantly, and are well-suited for POS security market applications. The compact size of NPort 5100 device servers makes them the ideal choice for connecting your RS-232/422/485 serial devices, such as card readers and payment terminals, to an IP-based Ethernet LAN, making it possible for your software to access serial devices located anywhere on a local LAN, or the Internet.
NPort 5100 supports several operation modes, including TCP Server, TCP Client, UDP Server/Client, Pair Connection, and Ethernet Modem, ensuring the compatibility of network software that uses a standard network API (Winsock, BSD Sockets). In addition, NPort’s Real COM/TTY drivers allow you to set up your COM/TTY port software to work over a TCP/IP network in no time. This excellent feature preserves your software investment and lets you enjoy the benefits of networking your serial devices instantly.
NPort 5100 device servers support automatic IP configuration protocols (DHCP, BOOTP) and manual configuration via the handy web browser console. Both methods ensure quick and effective installation. And with NPort 5100’s Windows Utility, installation is very straightforward, since all system parameters can be stored and then copied to other device servers simultaneously.
