I bought this so I could save myself some running around. I work with AB PLC's. This device comes with "standard tunnel" firmware, which will not work with Allen Bradley DF-1. So you will have to goto the website and flash the DF-1 firmware. Also the CD that ships with the item has software that is way too old. I couldn't get it to work. You will have to download new software from the Lantronix site. When configuring you MUST set the device to port 3001, using a virtual comm port (i.e. comm 7 for example) in the lantronix software. This info is hard to come by. It took about 4 hours to get it to work, but it works. Once you do that, use RSlogix to add DF-1 to the virtual comm port. Be sure the serial parameters are indentical to what you setup the Lantronix for.

Product Overview

The UDS-10-IAP Device Server allows almost any serial device to be connected to a new or existing 10Base-T Ethernet network. Both compact and economical, it is designed for use in applications with less demanding environmental requirements.

The UDS-10-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 UDS-10-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. DeviceComm Manager 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.
