This robust network serial concentrator is developed for applications that require connectivity for serial ports across an Ethernet network. The Digi Etherlite 8 Port 5 module has the ability to add serial ports to Ethernet networks which efficiently eliminates the need for installing serial adapters in servers. It likewise offers network control and efficiency at a reasonable cost per port and effortless installation. With this network serial concentrator, one TCP/IP session can service all incoming traffic from every port, not like the typical single session per port method utilized by other network serial concentrators. The method used by this module will translate to reduced overhead at the host and reduced traffic on the Ethernet network. The Digi Etherlite 8 Port 5 module uses Digi International’s RealPort drivers that are patented. With the aid of these drivers, the module’s ports may appear in Microsoft Windows operating system platforms as native COM ports and in UNIX as local TTY ports. These ports that are locally administered will allow complete organization of serial ports.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The Digi Etherlite 8 Port 5 module is available in 2 – 32 port models and can be utilized in many applications.

This module is field upgradeable and is capable of automatically detecting 100 mbps or 10 mbps Ethernet. It likewise has support for DHCP for the effortless configuration of IP addresses. It features 32, 16, 8 or 2 asynchronous serial ports and provides real serial ports without Reverse Telnet, Telnet, Rlogin or other complicated networking overhead. The Digi Etherlite 8 Port 5 module supports hardware signaling as well. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Digi Etherlite 8 Port 5 errors before installing any driver updates.
