Comtrol DeviceMaster RTS 16-Port RJ45

Key Features:

Comtrol Device master RTS 16-Port RJ45 is a sixteen port device server designed to enable placing serial devices on Ethernet network especially in applications where connecting legacy devices to pc is required without software change.
A pair of DeviceMaster RTS units can be used to create a point-to-point serial tunnel across the network that seamlessly transfers serial data via TCP or UDP socket connections

• No serial cable distance limitations enables communication between a host PC and serial devices located anywhere across an Ethernet network
• RS-232/422/485 software selectable
• Application compatibility supports native COM, TTY, or TCP/IP socket communication modes
• Built-in two-port 10/100 Ethernet switch simplifies network connection
• Web-based configuration makes setup and management changes quick and easy
• Real-time e-mail event notification alerts administrator of potential connection and security issues
• Wide operating temperature of -20° to 60°C
• 1U rack mount housing provides compatibility with existing IT equipment
• PortVision® DX remote monitoring and management software
• Software developer kit available for users interested in writing custom applications to run on the DeviceMaster platform
• SSL & SSH management, SSL serial data stream encryption
