DSX-LAN (M) LAN Communications Interface

Product Profile

The DSX-LAN(M) module is typically used to connect a Master Controller to the Host or Comm Server PC over a Local or Wide Area Network.  The WinDSX software is inherently TCP/IP capable and can redirect communication that would normally be transmitted out over serial port, over a LAN/WAN to a particular IP address.  The DSX-LAN(M) module receives that communication and converts it to RS-232 or RS-485 that connects directly to the Master Controller.  This adds another avenue of flexibility to WinDSX by utilizing TCP/IP communications as well as dial-up modem and direct serial port connectivity.  All three means of communication can be used at the same time in the same system.  The DSX-LAN(M) is powered from the DSX Controller which can provide battery backup.

The DSX-LAN(M) module is sold in two different configurations.  The DSX-LAN module provides IP communications as the only method of connectivity.  The DSX-LAN(M) has dial-up modem backup.  The DSX-LAN module must be ordered with the (M) option along with the DSX modem to support the dial-up backup feature.
