Lantronix WiBox dual-port Device Servers enable you to quickly and easily connect equipment to 802.11b/g wireless networks via serial or Ethernet. By merging wireless communications and Lantronix Device Server technology, WiBox simplifies connectivity to devices in applications where mobility is required or cabling is impractical. The WiBox simply becomes a conduit between you and your device over your network or the Internet. The flexibility and power of WiBox offers a huge cost-saving potential for a variety of commercial applications. Serial RS-232/422/485 flexibility, advanced security, robust data handling capabilities and high serial speeds are all built in. By connecting two WiBox units via a network, virtual serial connections can be extended across your facility or around the world. To enable access to a local network or the Internet, the WiBox integrates a fully developed TCP/IP network stack and OS. It even includes a built-in web server, which can be used for configuration or to display operating and troubleshooting information on the attached links to online support. The DeviceInstaller™ configuration software that’s included simplifies installation and setup. Flash memory provides maintenance-free, non-volatile storage of web pages, and allows future system software upgrades. The unit accepts modem AT commands on the serial port, then establishes a network connection to the end device, leveraging wireless mobility and bandwidth to eliminate dedicated modems and phone lines. If you’re looking for a transparent, cost-effective and scalable means to network-enable your serial devices, look no further than WiBox from Lantronix.
