The Tibbo DS100B is a Serial Device Server that connects any existing serial device to an Ethernet (TCP/IP) network externally. The DS100B features a compact and stylish design and a universal RS232/422/485 serial port (available through a single DB9M connector; interface selection by DIP switch).
Note that there are no RS485/RS422 terminators inside the DS100B.
Internally, the DS100B Serial Device Server is based on the Tibbo EM100 Ethernet Module.
