Network Readiness for up to Sixteen Serial Devices
The NPort® 5650 rackmount device server can conveniently and transparently connect up to sixteen serial devices to an Ethernet, allowing you to network your existing serial devices with only basic configuration. Data transmission between the serial and Ethernet interfaces is bi-directional. By using NPort® device servers, you not only protect your current hardware investment, but also allow for future network expansion. You can both centralize the management of your serial devices, and distribute management hosts over the network.
