The Digi PortServer TS MEI Port 4 is a part of the PortServer TS H MEI product family of serial servers by Digi International. This serial server is developed particularly for facilities for traffic management, pipelines, utility plants, or other remote applications that require a hardened serial to Ethernet solution capable of withstanding different environmental factors such as extreme temperatures. This serial server product family comes in 4, 2 and 1 port models and makes it easy for users to remotely manage and network enable variable ramp meters, loop detectors, message signs, or other RS-485/ 422 and 232 serial devices. It also comes with the patented COM port redirector technology called RealPort. This innovative technology allows the establishment of a connection among the networked serial devices as well as the host computer system by making a local TTY or COM port on the host computer system. This will generally result in the perfect functioning of existing software even without modifications.
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 PortServer TS MEI Port 4 is also capable of delivering data security through low latency, complete SNMP device management and SSHv2. The RealPort technology is the sole implementation that enables multiple port connections across one TCP/ IP connection – meaning that RealPort is capable of supporting the maximum amount of remote devices. This maximum amount is only limited by the processing power of the server and the operating system. On the other hand, other implementations necessitate a separate TCP/ IP connection for every single serial port. This in turn will result in more processing demands and a higher network overhead on the server. The RealPort software also features tunable throughput and latency, and complete software and hardware flow control. It comes bundled with all terminal and device servers by Digi. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Digi PortServer TS 8 MEI Port 4 errors before installing any driver updates.
