The NPort 5100A device servers are designed to make serial devices
network-ready in an instant and give your PC software direct access to
serial devices from anywhere on the network. The NPort 5100A device
servers are ultra lean, ruggedized, and user friendly, making simple and
reliable serial to Ethernet solutions possible.
A Greener Serial-to-Ethernet Solution
The Moxa MiiNe is a small but powerful ARM-based serial-to-Ethernet
SoC with RAM and Flash embedded. With the MiiNe inside, the NPort 5100A
series becomes the world's only device server with power consumption
less than 1 W. The NPort 5100A series saves at least 50% on power
consumption compared to existing solutions on the market, helping
engineers meet the tough environmental compliance challenges found in
today's industrial environments.
Surge-protected Serial, Ethernet, and Power Lines
Surge, which is typically caused by high voltages that result from
switching and lightning transients, is a common threat to all electrical
devices. Moxa's leading-edge surge immunity solution, which is applied
to the NPort 5100A's serial, power, and Ethernet lines, is tested and
proven compliant with IEC 61000-4-5. This state-of-the-art surge
protection provides a robust serial-to-Ethernet solution that can
protect electrical devices from voltage spikes and withstand
electrically noisy environmental conditions.
3-step Web-based Configuration
The NPort 5100A's 3-step web-based configuration tool is
straightforward and user-friendly. The NPort 5100A's web console guides
users through 3 simple configuration steps that are necessary to
activate the serial-to-Ethernet application. With this speedy 3-step
web-based configuration, a user only needs to spend an average of 30
seconds to complete the NPort settings and enable the application,
saving a great amount of time and effort.
Easy to Troubleshoot
NPort 5100A device servers support SNMP, which can be used to monitor
all units over Ethernet. Each unit can be configured to send trap
messages automatically to the SNMP manager when user-defined errors are
encountered. For users who do not use SNMP manager, an e-mail alert can
be sent instead. Users can define the trigger for the alerts using
Moxa's Windows utility, or the web console. For example, alerts can be
triggered by a warm start, a cold start, or a password change.
