Overview

EKI-1526The EKI-1526 is an industrial-grade network-based serial device server for connecting up to 16 serial RS-232/422/485 devices, such as CNCs, PLCs, scales and scanners, directly to a TCP/IP network. The EKI-1526 features two independent Ethernet ports and MAC addresses to provide a redundant networking mechanism to guarantee Ethernet networking reliability. The EKI-1526 provides a simple and cost-effective way to bring the advantages of remote management and data accessibility to thousand of devices that can't connect to an Ethernet network. The EKI-1526 offers rich ways to configure through Windows utility, web console, serial console or telnet console, these methods make it easy to manage many EKI-1526's or serial devices on your network.
