Serial-to-Ethernet technology with NPort Device Servers

Paul Boughton

Moxa new serial-to-Ethernet technology reduces power consumption, improves deployment efficiency, and achieves greater industrial network efficiency: the new NPort 5100A series, an extension of the NPort product line.

Equipped with the MiiNe, Moxa's second generation SoC, NPort 5100A series products use 20 per cent less components are 50 per cent less power compared to existing solutions on the market. The NPort 5100A is the only device server in the world with power consumption under 1 watt.
Greater efficiency lightens the workload involved in system deployment, and this advantage is compounded in applications that use many devices.

The NPort 5100A series uses new web-based tools designed to simplify deployment. Even an inexperienced user can configure a new NPort 5100A with three clicks in around 30 seconds.

Designed to provide reliable serial-to-Ethernet communications, the NPort 5100A series features a winning combination of surge protection on the serial, Ethernet, and power lines. IEC 61000-4-5 surge protection certification confirms that the NPort 5100A can maintain maximum productivity in electronically noisy environments.
