DS1100 as an RS232 Serial Device Server

The DS1100 is a compact Tibbo BASIC/Tibbo C-programmable RS232 controller with Ethernet connectivity.

The DS1100 comes preloaded with a fully functional serial-over-IP (SoI) application that turns the DS1100 into an economical serial-over-IP converter, a.k.a. the device server.

As a device server, the DS1100 is compatible with Tibbo Device Server Toolkit (TDST) for Windows. TDST includes the Virtual Serial Port Driver (VSPD), which enables you to use the serial port of the DS1100 as a remote COM port of your PC. The Linux version of the VSPD is available as well.

Built around the same T2000 ASIC as our EM500 "MiniMo" module, the DS1100 offers a single-channel RS232 port. The device can be powered via its power jack, pin9 of the DB9 (serial port) connector, or the available power-over-Ethernet module.

There are three LEDs on the device's front: green and red main status LEDs, and a yellow Ethernet link LED.

Each DS1100 is supplied with the DIN rail and wall mounting plates.
