The EKI-1511L is a device server for connecting serial RS-232 devices such as PLC, meters, sensors and barcode readers to an IP-based Ethernet LAN. The EKI-1511L connects nearly any device with a serial port to an Ethernet network while offering various operations such as COM port redirection, TCP server, TCP client and UDP mode.

With COM port redirection mode, standard serial operation calls are transparently redirected to the servers, guaranteeing compatibility with legacy serial devices and enabling backward compatibility with existing software. With TCP server, TCP client, and UDP modes, the EKI-1511L ensures compatibility with networking software using a standard network API. Serial devices can communicate with other devices via peer-to-peer, removing the need for an intermediate host PC and software programming.

With a compact and slim metal case, EKI-1511L  can be installed into a field cabinet easily.
