Patton Electronics Single Port RS-232 Terminal Product Details
Patton's Model 2120 Single Port Terminal Server provides a quick, simple, and cost effective solution for connecting traditional RS-232 terminals and devices to a local area network. The Model 2120 can be used just about anywhere, including the office, retail outlets, equipment rooms, and on the factory floor. When used with a dial-up modem and connected to a LAN, the Model 2120 also functions as an inexpensive single-port remote access server. The versatile and feature rich Model 2120 can literally be used in thousands of different applications and environments.
The Model 2120 brings serial RS-232 devices onto the network by encapsulating RS-232 data into IP packets for transport over the LAN. Using Raw TCP or TELNET, the Model 2120 can connect to any user-defined IP address and port. Once connected to the remote host, data is passed transparently end-to-end. The built-in DHCP Client allows the Model 2120 to dynamically obtain an IP address and a subnet mask from a master server. Using dial-up modems and SLIP and PPP connections, remote users can access the network as if they were locally connected.
The Patton Model 2120 Single Port Terminal Server easily and cost-effectively brings serial RS-232 equipment together with other systems on one Local Area Network!
