Overview

EKI-1361-MBThe EKI-1361-MB wireless serial device server bring RS-232/422/485 to wireless LAN. It allows nearly any device with a serial port to connect and share a wirelessLAN. The EKI-1361-MB provides a quick, simple, and cost-effective way to bring remote management and data accessibility to thousands of devices that cannot otherwise connect to a network. With the EKI-1361-MB your existing serial devices can be used with the most common operating systems without the need to write special drivers. Moreover, you can make serial devices communicate directly with other devices peer-to-peer, thus eliminating the need for intermediate host PCs and software programming. This saves a considerable amount of cost and effort. Additionally, you can actively request data or issue commands from the RS-232/422/485 side or wireless LAN side with bilateral data transmission. Thus, the EKI-1361-MB is especially suitable for remote monitoring environments such as security systems, factory automation, SCADA, transportation, and more.
