Product Overview

The CoBox-FL-IAP Device Server allows almost any serial device to be connected to a new or existing Ethernet network. Featuring a 10Base-FL fiber optic interface, it is ideal for applications that require long cable runs, EMI/RFI immunity and the inherent electrical isolation that optical fiber offers.

The CoBox-FL-IAP is a member of the new IAP (Industrial Automation Platform) family of products, which are loadable with various Industrial Communications Protocols from the supplied APS (Automation Protocols Suite) CD. The user simply chooses the appropriate protocol that his application requires and loads that into any of the -IAP family Device Servers. Continuous addition of more Industrial Communication Protocols to the APS CD will expand the number of applications where the -IAP family of products can be used.

By encapsulating serial data and transporting it over Ethernet, the CoBox-FL-IAP allows virtual serial links to be established over Ethernet. By using this unit, limited distance, point-to-point, direct serial connections can now be extended within the plant, throughout the facility or across the global enterprise.

When used in conjunction with an OPC server, most Windows® based HMI, SCADA and PC-based control applications have full access to information in the connected device.

Existing COM-port based Windows® applications can access network-enabled devices using DeviceComm Manager. This allows the creation of virtual serial ports, which can be mapped to remote Device Servers over Ethernet.

Installable communication drivers allow specific support for most industrial communication protocols. With native support for these protocols, devices that previously allowed only one connection can now support multiple connections simultaneously.

Flexible configuration options allow the unit to be setup locally using the serial port, or remotely over Ethernet using telnet or a common web browser.

Included Windows® based configuration software simplifies the process of installing communication drivers and in configuring them for use with attached devices. Flash memory provides for maintenance-free non-volatile storage, and allows future system upgrades.
