Just as StarBus packets and transmits RS-232 data onto a twisted pair, StarBus for Ethernet packetizes serial & parallel data onto an Ethernet, and reconstructs it at one or more other SFE units - on any Ethernet - anywhere in the world.
Each StarBus for Ethernet Busdriver has 2 serial ports, a parallel port, and up to 8 TTL or analogue signals, which are distributed without interference to existing computer communications. Your ethernet cable can now be used for all data - independent of the application or other existing equipment!
StarBus for Ethernet Busdrivers function just like 'classic' StarBus Busdrivers . . .
SFE does much more: A watchdog system tracks network connec-tions - and reestab-lish-es each one after a network or power failure. SFE controls remote equipment (even switching it on and off). SFE gives Ethernet sites total system uniformity. Manage connections between non-Ethernet equipment with the ease of Ethernet and the simplicity of our dedicated-wire StarBus.
Serial Ports Two full-duplex RS-232 ports, up to 38,400 bps, including all (9 pin) handshake signals: RTS/CTS/DTR and DCD (Carrier Detect).
Parallel Port One parallel port, user set to input or output and any 3 inter- (25 pin) face standards: Centronics, Data Products, or Data General.
Control I/O (4) isolated TTL inputs and four (4) outputs for general I/O. A/D conversion is available as an option.
Network Choose from 3 options: 10Base-T (twisted pair); 10Base-2 (coax); Interface 10Base-5 (AUI). Packets are TCP/IP compliant. StarBus HitchHiker stores IP addreess. Data is transparent to bridges and routers.
Power 120 or 240 VAC (12 watts). No external powerpack required.
Indicators Network port A/B, Packet RX, Packet TX, Serial port TX, Serial port RX, and Parallel port compatibility mode.
Controls Parameters stored in non-volatile memory. Use either push-button or application sequence to enter commands. Master reset switch.
Physical Metal: 10¼x8½x2¾". 3.3 lbs. Tabletop, single or double rack mount.
