EKI-1528 and EKI-1526 are industrial-grade network-based serial device servers for connecting up to 8 or 16 serial RS-232/422/485 devices, such as CNCs, PLCs, scales and scanners, directly to a TCP/IP network. The EKI-1528 and EKI-1526 feature two independent Ethernet ports and MAC addresses to provide a redundant network mechanism to guarantee Ethernet network reliability. The EKI-1528 and EKI-1526 provide a simple and cost-effective way to bring the advantages of remote management and data accessibility to thousand of devices that can’t connect to an Ethernet network. The EKI-1528 and EKI-1526 offer rich ways to configure through Windows utility, Web Browser, serial console or Telnet console, these methods make it easy manage many EKI-1528 and EKI-1526 or serial devices on your network.
