ORing IDS-311F: Ethernet server meets safety requirements

When feeding serial data into networks, data safety and dropout protection are rather more important than bandwidth. The new device server IDS-311F from Acceed is designed to meet precisely these requirements. Two models (multi-mode and single mode) each with one serial connection as well as an RJ45 and fibreglass connection work with SSL encryption and redundant power supply. Operation within an extended ambient temperature range from -40 to +70°C is permissible for robust, industrial use.

The new device server IDS-311F is equipped with a serial interface as well as two network interfaces (RJ45 and fibreglass). Two redundant voltage inputs from 12 to 48 VDC are executed as terminal strips and can therefore secure uninterrupted operation. With the extended operating temperature of -40 to +70 °C and a robust IP30 casing, it is also possible to operate the server in demanding environments in industrial systems, machines and poorly ventilated channels or casing. Therefore, the IDS-311F is a good solution for the secure transfer of serial data to the network with the fibreglass connection, also over large distances of 30 km for example.

The operation modes Virtual Com, Serial Tunnel, TCP Server, TCP Client, UDP and Modbus Gateway are supported. Event news can be saved or transmitted as Syslog, by E-mail or as SNMP Traps. The device server is configured web-based or using a free Windows tool.

On the serial side, the IDS-311F supports the RS-232, -422 and -485 protocols. The ICMP, IP, TCP, UDP, DHCP, BOOTP, SSH, DNS, SNMP V1/V2c, HTTPS and SMTP protocols are supported in the network. In order to provide a quick overview, several LEDs on the front side show the power supply status, the network activity as well as the serial data transfer (transmission/receipt).

The stable casing with the dimensions 45 x 81 x 95 mm only weighs some 300 g and is prepared for top-hat rail and wall assembly. Fitting power supplies with various outputs are available as accessories.

In its portfolio, Acceed offers a large number of industrial device servers, media converters and components for factory automation, building technology or Smart Home applications. The service offer incorporates device configuration as well as technical information covering all facets of industrial communication as well as free software and tools for setting up and operating the devices offered.
