The NPort 6000 device servers use the SSL and SSH protocols to transmit encrypted serial data over Ethernet. They have a 3-in-1 serial port supports RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485, with the interface selected from an easy-to-access configuration menu. The NPort 6000 2-port device servers are available for connecting to a 10/100BaseT(X) copper Ethernet or 100BaseT(X) fiber network. Both single-mode and multi-mode fiber are supported.
Secure Data Transmission
For many applications, guaranteeing secure data transmission is an important concern when connecting serial devices to a network. To answer this concern, the NPort 6000 supports the SSL and SSH protocols, which work by encrypting data before sending it over the network. With the NPort 6000, users can rest assured that serial data is transmitted securely over both private and public networks.
Zero Data Loss if Ethernet Connection Fails
The NPort 6250 device servers help guarantee reliability by providing users with secure serial-to-Ethernet data transmission and a customer-oriented hardware design. If the Ethernet connection fails, the NPort 6250 will queue all serial data in its internal 64 KB port buffer. When the Ethernet connection is re-established, the NPort 6250 will immediately release all of the data in the buffer in the order that it was received. Users can increase the port buffer size by installing an SD card.
