PortServer® TS serial servers offer a simple, reliable and cost effective solution for connecting multiple serial devices over industry standard Ethernet. Target applications include retail/point-of-sale, building control and medical point-of-care.
Digi’s patented RealPort®, with encryption and user authentication*, makes it possible to establish a connection between the host and networked serial device by creating a local COM or TTY port on the host computer, allowing software applications to work with networked device servers instead of requiring a host adapter.
PortServer TS is easy to install locally or remotely through a variety of IP addressing methods (DHCP, RARP, ARP-Ping) along with an application included on the installation CD that will automatically detect all PortServer devices on your network.
*The RealPort encryption feature is compatible with Microsoft Windows® 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server® 2012, 2016, 2019; and Linux®. The RealPort authentication feature is compatible only with Microsoft Windows® 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server® 2012, 2016, 2019.
