Cost-effective Solutions of RS-232 / RS-422 / RS-485 for Industrial Ethernet Applications
PLANET ICS-2100 Smart Media Converter / Device Server series offers conversion of serial RS-232 / RS-422 / RS-485 communication to Industrial Fast Ethernet networking. It allows serial and Ethernet communications to connect efficiently and inexpensively. The ICS-2100 is a time-saving and cost-effective solution for users and SIs to quickly transform its serial equipment to the Ethernet network with no need of replacing the existing serial equipment and software system.
The ICS-2100 makes the connected serial equipment become the IP-based facilities and able to connect to a TCP/IP networking immediately. It also provides Web Management Interface for efficient network management. The powerful Web-Smart Media Converter supports application mode and serial operation mode for alarm or IP address connection, which helps reduce a network administrator’s time by detecting and locating network problems without requiring visual inspection of cabling and equipment. Multiple connection options are available for large networking environment as well.
Stable Performance under Difficult Environments
The ICS-2100 provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curb side traffic control cabinets. Its operating temperature range from -10 to 60 degrees C allows the ICS-2100 to be placed in almost any difficult environment.
The ICS-2100 is equipped with the compact, IP30 standard metal case that allows either DIN rail or wall mounting for efficient use of cabinet space. The ICS-2100 also provides an integrated power supply source with wide range of voltages (12 to 48V DC) ideally suitable for worldwide operation with high availability applications requiring dual or backup power inputs.
