Product Categories

  • Serial Device Servers

    The serial device servers enable RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 serial devices to be connected to a host computer over an Ethernet network quickly and cost-effectively. No extra programming effort is required at the host computer, so software development costs can be saved. Serial device servers are especially suitable for remotely controlling and monitoring your serial devices via the Ethernet and they also are ideal for connection to RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 serial devices.

  • Wireless Device Server

    Advantech Wireless device server that bring RS-232/422/485 to wireless LAN or LAN. Allow nearly any device with serial ports to connect and share an WLAN network. Providing a quick, simple and cost-effective way to bring the advantages of remote management and data accessibility to thousands of devices that cannot connect to a network. With wireless device server, your existing serial devices can be used with the most popular operating systems on the market. There is no need to write special drivers for specific operating systems. Moreover, you can make serial devices communicate with other devices peer-to-peer, without any intermediate host PCs and software programming. That saves a lot of cost and effort. In addition, you can actively request data or issue commands from the RS-232/422/485 side or wireless LAN side. This data can be sent bilaterally. Thus, wireless device server are especially suitable for remote monitoring environments such as security systems, factory automaton, SCADA, transportation and more. "

  • Modbus Gateway

    The Modbus Serial Device Server as an interface between Modbus serial devices and computer hosts running Modbus/TCP on Ethernet networks. Fully compliant with Modbus/TCP, the Modbus Serial Device Server offers a convenient solution to connect existing devices or controllers running Modbus serial protocol (Modbus/ASCII or Modbus/RTU) to an Ethernet network.

  • USB Device Server

    Advantech’s USB serial device server allows PC users to connect a serial device through LAN to a system that use a USB interface, such as USB Monitors, Printer, and Scanner. Further fulfilling a virtual environment, USB-to-LAN serial device servers enhance user-intuitiveness and efficiency while cut your hardware requirement and extra costs; instantly convert the connected devices for access anywhere on your network. With Hot swap and Bus-powered function support, our USB-to-LAN serial device servers avoid the delay and trouble of restarting complex equipment, with no need for external power supply. We provide hot-swappable USB Device Servers with bundled software requiring no further cards slots or IRQ addresses setup, a simple way to extend and share your USB device over long distances, for multiple users connected to your Ethernet network maintaining a virtual environment.
