How to Buy

The ConnectPort LTS terminal server family delivers secure, reliable, flexible and cost-effective RS-232/422/485 serial-to-Ethernet connectivity. Targeted serial-to-IP applications include data center console port management, security, property management, point-of-sale, data acquisition, industrial automation, power utilities, logistics and others.

Features include Dual GB Ethernet for extreme reliability, an SD memory slot for data storage, and a large an LCD screen for easy configuration, monitoring and diagnostics. With the ConnectPort LTS W model, Digi offers the only wireless terminal server with an internal secure modem, USB 2.0 ports for expandability and an XBee® interface for Zigbee communication.

Highly advanced software features include an IPv4/IPv6 dual stack, user port sharing, port logging, SSHv2 and SSL. Python support and a Software Development Kit (SDK) make this versatile Linux-based appliance a good platform for programming.

  • 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.
