The NPort S8000 series, from CrispTech combines an industrial device server with a full-function managed Ethernet switch by integrating 2 fiber ports, 3 Ethernet ports, and 4 RS-232/422/485 serial ports, allowing the user to easily install, manage, and maintain the product. Combining device servers and switch in one product allows you to save space in your cabinet, reduce overall power consumption, and reduce costs, since you will not need to purchase a switch and serial device server separately.
Supports all NPort 5000 Series Device Server Functions
The NPort S8000 series supports the complete array of NPort 5000 series device servers functions. You can network your existing serial devices by connecting up to 4 serial devices through each of the 5 Ethernet ports, with only basic configuration required. In addition, data transmission between the serial and Ethernet interfaces is bi-directional.
Ring Redundancy at the Device Level
Device level communication networks for industrial automation are very critical since they are used to control and monitor device processes. A significant part of this type of communication depends on ring redundancy at the device level, which is designed to provide fast network fault detection and reconfiguration in order to support the most demanding control applications.
The NPort S8000 series integrates a full function NPort device server with an industrial switch to carry serial and Ethernet devices at the same time. In addition, the NPort S8000 can also achieve ring redundancy with standard STP/RSTP and Moxa's proprietary Turbo Ring or Turbo Ring 2 redundancy protocols. This all-in-one design can be used to optimize and simplify your device network, and enhance reliability.
Full-function Managed Ethernet Switch
The NPort S8000 series has a built-in full-function managed Ethernet switch that supports QoS, IGMP-snooping/GMRP, VLAN, Port Trunking, SNMPv1/v2c/v3, and IEEE 802.1X, allowing you to handle virtually any kind of application. Ethernet redundancy, which is used to increase the reliability and availability of your industrial Ethernet network, is provided by Moxa's own Turbo Ring technology (recovery time < 20 ms) or RSTP/STP (IEEE 802.1w/D).
