CE is a mandatory standard for products on the market in the European Economic Area. By CE marking a product, the manufacturer ensures that the item meets the essential safety requirements set out in the applicable CE directive.
This product fully adheres to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC, RoHS for short.  The directive covers the restriction of use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment and was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is an independent product safety certification organisation based in the United States. UL develops standards for products, materials, components, assemblies, tool and equipment, mainly dealing with product safety.
These devices and systems have been designed to accept a wide voltage DC power input. This feature is desirable in the industrial market where a fixed voltage level or mains AC power cannot be guaranteed.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent agency of the United States government that sets standards and governs the testing of conducted and radiated emissions such as EMI.
These products utilise high quality industrial grade components enabling them to work in extended wide temperature environments. They are capable of running below -20C and above +70C and offer further protection than standard wide temperature rated products.
These products come with a standard five year manufacturer warranty.

  • Dual-LAN cards with two independent MAC addresses and IP addresses
  • Redundant COM function available when both LAN's are active
  • Dual-host redundancy can be used to add a backup PC to your system
  • Dual AC power inputs (for AC models only)
  • Real COM/TTY drivers for Windows and Linux
  • Universal high-voltage range: 100V to 240V AC or 88V to 300V DC
  • -40°C to +75°C operating temperature (on -T versions)
Redundancy is an important issue for industrial networks, and various types of  solutions have been developed to provide alternative network paths when equipment or software failures occur. “Watchdog” hardware is installed to utilise redundant hardware-and a “Token”- switching software mechanism is applied. The CN2600 terminal server uses its built-in Dual-LAN ports to implement a “Redundant COM” mode that keeps your applications running uninterrupted.

The CN2600 has two separate LAN ports that can be connected to separate LAN networks. Dual-LAN redundancy involves setting up two separate physical networks to connect the PC host with the CN2600 (the PC host also requires two LAN cards). If one connection fails, the PC host can still communicate with your serial devices over the alternative LAN connection.

Moxa offers “Redundant COM”, an easy-to-use application to provide an alternative solution for network redundancy.  When the CN2600 receives a data packet from a connected device, two identical data packets are sent over two independent LAN connections to prevent lost data packets if one LAN connection becomes unavailable.  The CN2600 software is programmed to automatically discard duplicate data packets.

The CN2600’s dual LAN cards can also be used to set up “dual-host” redundancy. In this case, both networks (LAN A and LAN B in the figure) are connected to two different hosts. If either of the two hosts shuts down unexpectedly, the other host will still be able to communicate with serial devices connected to the CN2600.

Dual-power redundancy uses two power inputs and redundant internal power supplies to ensure that all of the CN2600’s functions will be available, even in the event of power circuit failures.
