Manufacturer Warranty Policy:
EKI-1524 feature two independent Ethernet ports and MAC addresses to provide a redundant networking mechanism to guarantee Ethernet networking reliability. The EKI-1524 is a network-based, serial device server for connecting four RS-232/422/485 devices, such as CNCs, PLCs, scales, and scanners,directly to a TCP/IP network. Once connected through EKI-1524 device server, your serial device will be able to send and receive data on a network like any other network device. EKI-1524 provide a simple and cost-effective way to bring the advantages of remote management and data accessibility to thousand of devices that can not connect to a network.
EKI-series device server provide various operations: COM port redirection (Virtual COM port), TCP server Client and UDP mode. After Advantech redirection software installation, standard serial operating calls are transparently redirected to the EKI- series device server, guaranteeing compatibility with legacy serial devices and enabling backward compatibility with existing software. EKI-1524 also support serial tunneling, allowing two native serial devices to communicate over a network.
