The iDS product range is the 3rd generation of Device Servers from ICPDAS. It is designed for rugged, industrial-level applications, and provides high performance, high reliability and high capacity.
The iDS product range provides a complete Ethernet service, as well as 1、2 and 4-port RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 interfaces that allow any existing serial devices to be connected to an Ethernet network.
Powerful Data Transparent Solution: Zero Data Loss
The iDS product range is equipped with an ARM-based high-performance CPU and large capacity RAM in order to accomplish the goal of “Zero Data Loss” when attempting to transfer a critical data stream. If a failure occurs on the Ethernet connection, the serial data will be queued and will be resent once the Ethernet is reconnected. Each device port provides 32 TCP connections that can be used to share the same information across the network from a single serial device.
The iDS product range provides a wide range of built-in features designed for easy deployment of the device into existing operating environments.
- Dual Power Supply: DC and PoE
- DIN-Rail Mounting
- Serial Port Surge Protection
- Adjustable RS-485 Terminal Resistor and Pull High/Low Resistor
- RS-485 Direction Control via the embedded ICPDAS Self-Tuner
- Hardware/Software-selectable RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485 Interfaces
- Hardware Reset button and LED Indicator.
- 64-bit Hardware Serial Number
The built-in web server allows the iDS product to be accessed and configured using a standard web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. The configurations include parameters of serial ports, SNMP, the mode of Serial-To-Ethernet service. In addition, the onboard Flash memory provides the capacity for future software upgrades.
All devices in the iDS product range support the SNMP protocol, which is a popular method within the IT industry for monitoring a device over the Ethernet. The iDS device can be configured to send SNMP-Trap alerts to the SNMP manager if user-defined errors or events are encountered. For example, alerts can be triggered by a warm/cold start events, or a password change, etc. An email alert and web-based event log page is also provided.
