Lantronix WiBox Dual-Port Wireless Device Server - Product Details
The flexibility and power of WiBox offer a huge costsaving potential for a variety of commercial applications. Serial RS-232/422/485 flexibility, WEP security, robust data handling capabilities and high serial speeds are all built in. Using a method called serial tunneling, the WiBox encapsulates serial data into packets and transports it over 802.11b wireless networks. By connecting two WiBox units via a network, virtual serial connections can be extended across your facility or around the world.
Lantronix' innovative approach to network enabling devices is transparent to your attached devices and software. You won't need to change the way you work, and there's no need to develop special software to take advantage of wireless networking capabilities. The WiBox simply becomes a conduit between you and your device over the network or Internet.
The Com Port Redirector Software included with your WiBox simplifies your integration process by extending the functionality of your COM port-based Windows applications. With virtual COM ports mapped to remote device servers on the network, you can replace direct serial connections.
In modem emulation mode, the WiBox is used to replace dial-up modems. The unit accepts modem AT commands on the serial port, then establishes a network connection to the end device, leveraging wireless mobility and bandwidth to eliminate dedicated modems and phone lines.
To enable access to a local network or the Internet, the WiBox integrates a fully developed TCP/IP network stack and OS. It even includes a built-in Web server, which can be used for configuration or to display operating and troubleshooting information on the attached links to online support.
The DeviceInstaller configuration software that's included simplifies installation and setup. The WiBox can be set up locally through its serial port, or remotely over a network using DeviceInstaller Telnet or a Web browser. Flash memory provides maintenance-free, non-volatile storage of Web pages, and allows future system software upgrades.
If you're looking for a transparent, cost-effective and scalable means to network enable your serial devices, look no further than WiBox from Lantronix.
