The innovative ORing IDS-5042 from Automation Sales is a four port RS232/422/485 to 2 ports LAN redundant device server. To ensure the security and agility of critical data, the IDS-5042 offers numerous powerful features for HW & SW redundant functions.

When the connection between master-link and LAN fails, the IDS-5042 device server can switch automatically to another LAN port within 10mS while guarantying a non-stop connection. The IDS-5042 also supports switch mode whereby users can use Daisy Chain to reduce the usage of Ethernet switch ports. 

To avoid Ethernet break or host PCs failure the IDS-5042 can simultaneously transfer data into 5 host PCs. This feature ensures all critical data is saved in a different host PC. 

The IDS-5042 device server also provides dual redundant power inputs on DC power jack and terminal block and an NAT pass through function so that users are able to manage IDS-5042 inside or outside the NAT router.

IDS-5042 is an ideal solution for use with communication redundant solutions for application of serial devices.
