The SCADALink IP100 is a Serial-to-Ethernet Gateway, Multiport Industrial Terminal Server and Modbus Multiplexer designed for SCADA and automation applications requiring serial connectivity of LAN/WAN and Internet Networks. The IP100 enables IP access to serially connected devices such as PLC’s, RTU’s, SCADA hosts, Flow Computers, Data loggers and Radio Modem systems.
Unique features such as multiple host connections and simultaneous TCP, UDP and Modbus TCP ports gives it flexibility and scalability in automation and SCADA applications.
To maintain system availability for critical operations, the IP100 can be set up to provide a redundant connection through a serial or ethernet interface. The failover provides a backup link should the primary connection between the SCADA Host and the IP100 becomes unavailable.
A built-in Monitor tool enables serial communications diagnostics by providing users with realtime protocol analysis capabilities on selected serial channels. Configuration is done via simple windows GUI or ASCII Terminal. The IP100 is a compact replacement for the SCADALink IP Gateway with additional ports and expanded functionality.
The IP100 can be configured for the following Operating Modes. It also supports multiple, simultaneous operation of these Modes.
- Modbus IP
- Virtual Serial Server
- Virtual Serial Client
- Serial Mux
- Serial Master
