Low power consumption device server

The NPort 5100A Series serial device servers from Moxa create network-ready devices and give direct access for PC software.


Moxa introduces the NPort 5100A Series serial device servers, designed to make serial devices network-ready in an instant and give PC software direct access to serial devices from anywhere on the network. The company says the products operate with the world’s lowest power consumption, only 1 W, and provide: speedy three-step web-based configuration; surge protection for serial, Ethernet, and power lines; COM port grouping and UDP multicast applications; screw connectors for secure installation; real COM/TTY drivers for Microsoft Windows and Linux; a standard TCP/IP interface and versatile TCP and UDP operation modes; and a lean design for higher mean time between failure. Also, Moxa’s surge immunity solution, which is applied to the NPort 5100A’s serial, power, and Ethernet lines, is tested and proven compliant with IEC 61000-4-5.
