Serial-to-Ethernet Device Servers

The DS-700 is a series of Serial-to-Ethernet Device Servers that are designed for linking RS-232/422/485 devices to an Ethernet network. By using the VxComm Driver/Utility, the built-in COM port of the DS-700 series can be virtualized to a standard PC COM port in Windows. By virtue of its protocol independence, a small size and flexibility, the DS-700 series meets the demands of virtually any network-enabled application.

The DS-712 is equipped with a male DB-9 connector and supports a 5-wire RS-232 port, while the DS-715 is equipped with a removable terminal block connector and supports a 4-wire RS-422 port or a 2-wire RS-485 port with 2000 Vrms isolation.
