SX-520

Serial to Ethernet Device Server

The SX-520 serial device server provides the easiest method to connect, access, and monitor RS232 serial devices over a network.

Top Features:

  • Includes Silex’s serial port emulation software allowing Windows software applications to communicate over the network to the serial device attached to the SX-520.
  • The SX-520 features Silex’s ECable mode allowing serial data to be tunneled over the network between devices connected to SX-520s.
  • Using the SX-520 UDP Multicast capabilities data can be sent from a PC to two or more SX-520s simultaneously.

Applications:

Virtually any RS232 serial device can be connected to a network including but not limited to;

  • Medical Point of Care
  • Security Systems
  • Industrial Equipment
  • Point of Sale Display
  • Weight Scales
  • Digital Signs
  • CNC Machines
  • RFID Readers

Features and Benefits:

The SX-520 serial device server provides the easiest method to connect, access, and monitor RS232 serial devices over a network. Connecting serial devices over a network extends the life of legacy equipment allowing them to work with newer networked systems. Network connectivity enables remote access for easy management resulting in improved efficiency, time savings and reduced operational expense.

Using Silex’s SX Virtual Link software for Serial Com Port Emulation allows for easy integration with existing PC applications not designed for network communications.

Connectivity that Works 

Connecting serial devices to a network sounds easy, but serial data was never meant to communicate over TCP/IP networks. The experts at Silex Technology have over 35 years providing complex connectivity solutions for leading technology companies in demanding environments.

Complexity made Simple

The SX-520 provides industry leading simplicity for connecting serial devices to a network. Designed to provide the easiest and quickest way to connect and communicate with RS232 serial devices. Using the included setup utility and Silex’s exclusive Auto Find and Connect feature takes the guess work out of device connectivity.

Industry Leading Quality

The SX-520 is designed to meet the demanding performance requirements of critical applications. Each SX-520 is individually tested and inspected to ensure the highest quality resulting in greater performance and reliability.

Application Examples

Serial Port Emulation: The SX-520 includes Silex’s serial port emulation software allowing Windows software applications that communicate directly to a serial port to now communicate over the network to the serial device attached to the SX-520.
