It is common in large multimedia systems to have more serial-controlled devices than the control system has
actual serial ports. With Crestron™ control systems, you may need to use an AV2-PRO or add several STCOMs. These large control systems can become very expensive. A project may only require a few serialcontrolled devices, and to save money, you install a small Crestron MC2e or AMX NI-2100 controller. At some
point during the installation, your customer may wish to add video-conferencing and camera control to this
system, but be left with no open serial ports on the controller. This leaves you with the choice of changing out
the controller, or adding an expensive Crestron ST-COMs or AMX NXC-COM2.
TEKVOX however, has a better solution, the TekPort
Device Server allows you to add eight or sixteen serial
ports in a single 1RU device to a Crestron™ or AMX™
control system. The TekPort connects to the control
system via Ethernet and is easy to install and program.
Configuring a TekPort only requires the setting of its IP
address. TEKVOX also provides your programmer with
simple-to-use modules for both AMX and Crestron. The
Crestron module effectively takes the place of the serial
port connections that is typically set in the Central Control
Modules. With the Crestron TekPort module, there is no need to add an Ethernet TCP/IP-Client or set IP tables
or ports; simply select which serial port you want to communicate with on the TekPort. With AMX, it may be
more difficult since most modules are written to communicate with the device. It is best to include the TCP/IP
connection in your device module.
Benefits
 Low cost serial port
expansion
 Easy setup,
configuration and
programming
 High speed LAN
connection
 Allows for smaller controllers
 Allows for extened distances
The TekPort is made by MOXA and is preconfigured to work with AMX and Crestron modules supplied by
TEKVOX. On the front of the TekPort is a menu driven LCD and keypad which allows for easy configuration of
the network settings. The following are preconfigured settings from TEKVOX:



Network settings: DHCP
Serial Port setting: 9600 baud, 8-bit, 1 stop bit, no parity, and no flow control.
Web server password: TekPort01
Since the TekPort is preconfigured from TEKVOX, the only required settings are the network and serial port.
These settings can easily be made through the TekPort web server or front panel LCD. Note that the web server
is password protected from TEKVOX (TekPort01).

Wiring
Most RS-232 devices have a DC voltage on their transmit pin. If you wire the device you want to
control first (pins 2, 3 & 5), and then check for voltage between pin 5 (ground) and the other
wires, the wire that has voltage should go to the controller’s receive connection. Pin 5 is for the
TekPort RJ45 RX while Pin 2 is RX for DB 9 male connectors such as AMX and Crestron,
