NPort® P5150A device servers are designed to make serial devices network-ready in an instant. It is a power device and is IEEE 802.3af compliant, so it can be powered by a PoE PSE device without an additional power supply. Use the NPort® P5150A device servers to give your PC software direct access to serial devices from anywhere on the network. The NPort® P5150A device servers are ultra-lean, ruggedized, and user-friendly, making simple and reliable serial-to-Ethernet solutions possible.
Surge Protection for Serial, Ethernet, and Power
Surge, which is typically caused by high voltages that result from switching and lightning transients, is a common threat to all electrical devices. Moxa’s leading-edge surge immunity solution, which is applied to the NPort® P5150A’s serial, power, and Ethernet lines, is tested and proven compliant with IEC 61000-4-5. This state-of-the-art surge protection provides a robust serial-to-Ethernet solution that can protect electrical devices from voltage spikes and withstand electrically noisy environmental conditions.
3-Step Web-based Configuration
The NPort® P5150A’s 3-step web-based configuration tool is straightforward and user-friendly. The NPort® P5150A’s web console guides users through 3 simple configuration steps that are necessary to activate the serial-to-Ethernet application. With this speedy 3-step web-based configuration, a user only needs to spend an average of 30 seconds to complete the NPort® settings and enable the application, saving a great amount of time and effort.
Easy to Troubleshoot
NPort® P5150A device servers support SNMP, which can be used to monitor all units over Ethernet. Each unit can be configured to send trap messages automatically to the SNMP manager when user-defined errors are encountered. For users who do not use SNMP manager, an email alert can be sent instead. Users can define the trigger for the alerts using Moxa’s Windows utility, or the web console. For example, alerts can be triggered by a warm start, a cold start, or a password change.
