DIGI International, represented in Australia by Tech Pacific , has introduced the new Digi One IA RealPort, the latest extension of its Digi One IA product suite designed to network enable virtually any serial device in the industrial automation environment.
The Digi One IA RealPort allows for connection of new and legacy serial devices and PCs from anywhere on the factory floor, using any operating system.
Advanced Modbus and Modbus/TCP features allow for improved sharing of information between various factory floor devices, and advanced SNMP features allow for management of the industrial device from a centralised location.
These features make the Digi One IA RealPort more versatile and cost-effective than other products on the market.
The Digi One IA RealPort was designed to address the specific needs of the industrial automation market. This includes industrial operating temperatures, patented RealPort technology, easy web-based configuration, multi-master capability and complete serial and Modbus MIBs for easy management through SNMP.
It also incorporates a switchable EIA-232/422/485 serial interface in addition to a 10/100Base-T network port.
The Digi One IA RealPort accommodates the broad spectrum of power requirements used in industrial automation environments by offering voltage from 9 to 30 volts as well as support for the new 802.3af powered Ethernet standard at 48 volts.
