IDS-5042 / 5042+

Industrial 4-port RS232/422/485 to 2-port 10/100TX Device Server



IDS-5042 series is an innovative secure 4-port RS-232/422/485 to 2 ports LAN secure device server featuring the standard features of device server, such like TCP/IP interface and versatile operation modes: Virtual Com, Serial Tunnel, TCP Server, TCP Client, UDP. In addition, the Windows utility, DS-Tool, could configure multiple devices and set up the mappings of Virtual Com. The features of NAT Router Pass-Through, DDNS, and PPPoE make it more convenient for administrators to configure ORing’s device servers through NAT router from different IP domains or Internet via modem remotely. On the other hand, IDS-5042 series can simultaneously transfer data up to 5 redundant host PCs to aovid Ethernet connection breakdown or any host PC fails. Further, IDS-5042 series features HTTPS, SSH, and SSL encryption to assure the security of critical data transmission.

IDS-5042 series supports RS-232/422/485 and provides dual redundant power inputs 12~48 VDC on terminal block to guarantee a non-stop operation. Further, IDS-5042+ features PoE P.D. (Power Device) function with 1kv isolation on the PoE port. With wide operating temperature, -10~70°C, and rugged IP- 30 housing design, IDS-5042 series could operate in the harsh industrial environment. Therefore, IDS-5042 series is the best solution to the high demand of secure serial to Ethernet critical data communication.
