Description

Cost-effective Solutions of RS-232 / RS-422 / RS-485 for Industrial Ethernet Applications
PLANET ICS-2100 Smart Media Converter / Device Server series offers conversion of serial RS-232 / RS-422 / RS-485 communication to Industrial Fast Ethernet networking. It allows serial and Ethernet communications to connect efficiently and inexpensively. The ICS-2100 is a time-saving and cost-effective solution for users and SIs to quickly transform its serial equipment to the Ethernet network with no need of replacing the existing serial equipment and software system.

Remote Manageable
The ICS-2100 makes the connected serial equipment become the IP-based facilities and able to connect to a TCP/IP networking immediately. It also provides Web Management Interface for efficient network management. The powerful Web-Smart Media Converter supports application mode and serial operation mode for alarm or IP address connection, which helps reduce a network administrator’s time by detecting and locating network problems without requiring visual inspection of cabling and equipment. Multiple connection options are available for large networking environment as well.

Stable Performance under Difficult Environments
The ICS-2100 provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curb side traffic control cabinets. Its operating temperature range from -10 to 60 degrees C allows the ICS-2100 to be placed in almost any difficult environment.

The ICS-2100 is equipped with the compact, IP30 standard metal case that allows either DIN rail or wall mounting for efficient use of cabinet space. The ICS-2100 also provides an integrated power supply source with wide range of voltages (12 to 48V DC) ideally suitable for worldwide operation with high availability applications requiring dual or backup power inputs.

Applications

Access Control System – traditional installation
Most of the enterprises and government use access control plate and Mifare or RFID to authorize entrance identity. Traditionally, access control machines use RS-232 or RS-485 serial interface with their cables connecting to login server. By connecting to ICS-210x Serial over Ethernet Converter, the access control machine is able to extend the network over longer distances via fiber optic interface. The distance can be up to 15km in a local range. In another way, the ICS-210x can be linked to a xDSL router to get the Internet access capability so that the access control can be set and monitored over the Internet.

Process Control
To monitor, configure and manage the Robot conveyer including other machines in manufacturing, PLC (Programmable Logical Control) is required to drive the above manufacturing process. The ICS-210x can be set to the TCP Server mode and connect to the PLC. Thus, the administrator can configure and set command settings through Fast Ethernet intranet to remotely control the PLC, the administrator and workstation. It is not necessary to stand by the I/O machine.

Surveillance Motion Control – Pair Connection Mode
Using pair connection along with fiber optic patch cord, the ICS-210x extends RS-232 / RS-422 / RS-485 interface distance from surveillance and scanner to the control keyboard/ joystick installed in the remote monitoring center.
