The serial challenge for industrial Ethernet

The serial challenge for industrial Ethernet GarrettCom Europe has developed a groundbreaking line of serial-to-IP/Ethernet converters allow the large installed base of serial devices to be integrated into modern industrial Ethernet networks. The DX range of serial devices routers provide intelligent serial-to-IP/Ethernet protocol services, offering vastly more functionality, flexibility and network resiliency compared with conventional, basic terminal servers and device servers. At the same time, they provide an exceptionally cost-effective solution. The DX serial device routers provide a 'dynamic serial edge' for hardened industrial networks that combines the features of a serial-IP device server, Ethernet switch, IP router and IP firewall in a compact product with a variety of field mounting and power supply options. There are two models the range: the DX800 supports four serial interfaces and four Ethernet ports, including two fibre ports, while the DX40 provides two serial ports and two Ethernet ports, one or both of which may be fibre. The DX serial device routers offer significant advantages over more basic Serial-IP devices such as terminal servers and device servers. The DX serial device routers provide network resiliency via secure, dual-connection fibre-optic Ethernet ports and software features such as RSTP and dynamic IP routing. Further, the DX series extends cyber security protection for serial interfaces to the edge of the network via serial port SSL, IP firewall and a unique Serial VLAN capability.
