  • Serial Device Servers

    Advantech’s serial device servers are easy to install and configure. They also support wired and wireless networking and provide various operation modes to satisfy rigorous industrial automation needs. Our dual/single Ethernet wired serial device servers bring RS-232/422/485 to your LAN, with various choices of 1–16 serial ports and DIN-rail configurations to suit your rugged field environment. Our wireless solution employs cellular gateways to transparently integrate serial devices into a cellular network, creating a smooth wireless connection experience. This solution is also equipped with magnetic isolation ability; our cellular network-based wireless solutions protect your RS-232/422/485 serial devices and ensure overall connection stability. Advantech offers cost-efficient solutions for your RS-232/422/485 connectivity and conversion challenges in industrial automation. Being certified by IEEE, our serial device servers can transform your serial devices into Ethernet devices with wired and wireless cellular network functionality.

  • Wireless Device Server

    Advantech’s wireless device server brings RS-232/422/485 to your WLAN or LAN. Allowing nearly any device with a serial port to be connected to and shared on a WLAN, our wireless device server provides a quick, simple, and cost-effective means of bringing the advantages of remote management and data accessibility to thousands of devices that would otherwise be unable to connect to a network. With our wireless device server, your existing serial devices can be used with the most popular operating systems on the market. There is no need to write special drivers for specific operating systems. Moreover, you can make serial devices communicate with other devices peer-to-peer, without any intermediate host PCs or software programming, which can save a considerable amount of cost and effort. You can also actively request data or issue commands from the RS-232/422/485 side or WLAN side, and data can be sent bilaterally. Thus, our wireless device server is particularly suitable for remote monitoring systems such as those used in security, factory automation, SCADA, transportation, and more.

  • Modbus Gateways

    Fully compliant with Modbus/TCP, our Modbus gateway offers a convenient solution for connect existing devices or controllers running the Modbus serial protocol (Modbus/ASCII or Modbus/RTU) to an Ethernet network. Featuring built-in Ethernet switches, Advantech’s Modbus gateways provide transparent connectivity between Modbus/ASCII, Modbus/RTU serial devices, and Ethernet-based Modbus/TCP equipment. Our gateways can fulfill flexible installation and web browser configuration requirements for remote monitoring applications. Our Modbus gateway products provide a simple and cost-effective means for bringing the advantages of remote management and data accessibility to devices that otherwise cannot connect to a network, easily allowing you to convert Modbus/ASCII and Modbus/RTU to Modbus/TCP.

  • USB Device Server

    Advantech’s USB serial device server allows PC users to connect serial devices via a LAN to systems that use USB interfaces such as USB monitors, printer, and scanners. USB-to-LAN serial device servers enhance user-intuitiveness and efficiency while cutting hardware requirements and other costs, and they enable the immediate conversion of connected devices, thus allow access from anywhere on your network. With hot swap and bus-powered support, our USB-to-LAN serial device servers avoid delays and problems from having to restart complex equipment, and there is no need for an external power supply. Our hot-swappable USB device servers come with bundled software, thus requiring no further card slots or IRQ addresses to be setup, a simple way to extend and share your USB device over long distances, for multiple users connected to your Ethernet network maintaining a virtual environment.
