iDS6 is a serial device server with 4 ports of serial RS232/422/485 to 2 redundant LAN ports. To ensure integrity and security of critical data, iDS6 offers many powerful redundancy features. The first feature provides protection against failure of an Ethernet LAN port, by automatically switching to another LAN port within 10ms to guarantee delivery via an alternative path.
iDS6 also supports an Ethernet switch mode allowing users to daisy chain several serial servers reducing the usage of Ethernet switch ports. Another redundancy feature in the iDS6 is the simultaneous transfer of data of up to 5 host PCs. This feature ensures that critical data is sent via alternative Ethernet paths and to multiple host PC’s ensuring data is not compromised by the Ethernet connections or potential host PC failure. With NAT pass through functionality, users are able to manage the iDS6 inside or outside the NAT router, making it easy for different IP domain users to use the iDS6.
