The 3rd Generation NEWPORT® iServer3G connects any Serial Device (RS-232, RS-485) to an Ethernet network or the Internet in minutes. The system can send notifications by email, and has SNMP for remote management. The system can make an existing Serial device a "node" on an Ethernet network with a unique IP address that is accessible from any authorized computer on the LAN, WAN or Internet. It can also convert Serial Modbus to Modbus TCP/IP over Ethernet. A facilities manager can monitor electric power over the LAN from anywhere in the facility, or anywhere on the Internet. A payroll clerk can download data from time clocks to a PC anywhere on a local area network, or anywhere in the world. A manufacturing technician can use a handheld computer with Wireless Ethernet connectivity to change settings on a process controller.
