How to Buy

Digi One SP IA is a high-performance serial server providing entry level serial-to-Ethernet connectivity for virtually any serial device. It features a 9-30 VDC power input with bare-wire “pigtail” for a direct connection, includes a DIN rail and wall mount kit and is one of the smallest solutions available, making it ideal for industrial applications.

Digi One SP IA device server supports most IA protocols through TCP/UDP connections, serial bridging or COM port redirection using Digi’s patented RealPort® software. RealPort enables existing applications to communicate, without modification, with serial devices over the Ethernet as if they were communicating over a serial cable. Additionally, Digi One SP IA features modem emulation, allowing equipment designed for modem access to communicate transparently across the Ethernet.

Digi One SP IA is easy to install locally or remotely. The IP address can be configured using DHCP, ARP-Ping or Setup, an application included with the installation CD that automatically detects all Digi One serial server devices on the network. Users can auto-connect a serial device to a networked server using raw, Telnet or rlogin. Advanced functions can be configured into an application using the web interface.

  • All RJ-45 to DBx cables are 10-pin. Only the RJ-45 to RJ-45 cable is an 8-pin cable.
  • All RJ-45 adapters are 8-pin. When using these adapters with modems or other applications that require DCD on pin 1, you must turn on altpin.
  • If altpin is turned off, the hardware signal on pin 1 becomes DSR instead of DCD. This alternative can be used if DCD is not required, and DSR is needed instead.
