2.No described pins mean standard RS-232 definition.
3.SUNIX DevicePort® has to source +5VDC power from PC’s USB port or additional power
adapter accessory.
4.Powered COM +5VDC power output capacity depends on the power source ability. For example,
each serial device sources 500mA power current from COM port, so total 4-port power consumption
is 2000mA@5VDC. To keep system and connected devices stable, a 5V@2500mA or higher power
source is necessary. (SUNIX DevicePort® also asks 5VDC@500mA power consumption).
SUNIX DevicePort® daisy chain network topology limits maximum 4 DevicePort® boxes or 12
COM / 3 LPT ports expansion.

searching “DevicePort” or “DPKS”.
(2) Please execute Setup.exe to install driver.
Driver InstallShield Wizard will process installation procedure.
a. DevicePort® is not properly connected to the PC host. Be sure to use Ethernet downstream
port number1 of DevicePort®. Please read chapter 2 hardware guide for detail.
b. Make sure DC power is properly connected to DevicePort®. You can identify it by Power
LED on DevicePort®. Please read chapter 2 hardware guide for detail

Q 8. Will DevicePort® lower my Internet performances when access COM serial data at the same time?
Ans: SUNIX DevicePort® product built-in dual 10/100 Ethernet channels, one for data
downstream to PC host and the other upstream port to Ethernet switch. User can access
internet over DevicePort® bridge. Serial data communication asks very low bandwidth;
most of serial devices asks 9600bps,N,8,1 data transfer rate, so it should not cause your
internet accessing trouble. According to our testing, one single 8-port RS-232 DevicePort®
product expenses about 10Mbp/s data transferring rate with full loading (921Kbps, N,8,1)
test. About 10% bandwidth of standard 10/100Mb network environment.
However, to make sure efficient and safe communication, DevicePort® will put serial
communication data from COM ports as the first priority than other internet data
packages.
Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in
which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.
Modifications not authorized by the manufacturer may void users authority to operate this
device.

Q 9. May I know system resource of COM or LPT port?
Ans: SUNIX DevicePort® is an Ethernet enable devices. System or BIOS will not allocate any
resource for COM or LPT ports. So COM port does not locate at any legacy ISA address 3F8,
3E8, 2F8,2E8 and LPT port does not locate at 378, 278, 3BC legacy ISA address either.
Q10. My DevicePort cannot communicate with my serial device, however without problem
communicating over on-board COM port.
Ans: Please download SUNIX detail manual from official website and follow up chapter 4.1 to
export log file, and sent log files to SUNIX technical support to verify.
Q11. DevicePort Control Center utility initialization fails.
Ans: It may cause by communicating time-gap between PC’s Ethernet driver and DevicePort®
driver. DevicePort® Control Center utility does not initialize successfully when PC system
booting.
