When you need the ultimate in performance, ease of use and reliability, Quatech(TM) Serial Device Servers provide the highest throughput and lowest latency available.
An intuitive Installation Wizard gets you up and running quickly, automatically searching local and remote subnets for installed device servers in seconds. Network settings automatically assigned by DHCP networks are displayed for confirmation. Or enter a static IP address - no bother with telnet sessions, MAC address data entry or special cables. Quatech(TM) device servers may be managed through the Windows Device Manager interface or a Web browser, so you can count on trouble-free configuration and maintenance long after the initial installation is completed. Models use the same drivers, manuals and installation wizard to simplify deployment and use.
Serial devices are used in virtually all industries and are proven to be reliable and robust. But there are drawbacks - cable lengths are limited and costly, COM ports are often in short supply, and attached serial devices are not remotely accessible for monitoring and support. A Quatech(TM) Device Server overcomes all these limitations. Hardware and drivers are invisible to connected serial devices and their software applications, routing data through an IP network to "virtual" COM ports installed on the host PC.
