PortServer® TS H MEI
Hardened Serial Servers
High-performance RS-232/422/485 serial-to-Ethernet
connectivity for locations requiring extended temperature
tolerance.
Overview
PortServer TS H MEI is designed for utility plants, pipelines,
traffic management facilities, and other remote applications
requiring a hardened serial-to-Ethernet solution that can
withstand extreme temperatures. It is ideal for networkenabling and remotely managing variable message signs, loop
detectors, ramp meters or any RS-232/422/485 serial device.
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.
