Newport i-Series Overview
The NEWPORT®iSeries devices connect directly to an Ethernet network with a standard RJ-45 connector and can send and receive data in standard TCP/IP packets. (Please specify EI or C4EI option.)
The iSeries devices can serve Web pages over an Ethernet LAN or even over the Internet making it possible to monitor and control a process through a web browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer) from anywhere in the facility or anywhere in the world.
For example, using an iSeries 1/16 DIN temperature controller to control a heater, an engineer can monitor the temperature, change set points or alarm points, turn the heater on and off, or make other modifications from anywhere on the local network, or anywhere on the Internet. The web pages are easily customized and secure password protected access to the devices is easily controlled. And it requires absolutely no special software on the engineer's computer to view the data and "supervise" the controller--nothing other than a Web Browser. Most remarkable is that all this can be accomplished without a computer.
In fact, the iSeries controller can even send an email to the engineer (or anyone he chooses) alerting him to an alarm condition or updating the status. Leveraging the technology of the Internet, the engineer could receive a message from his iSeries controller on an Internet enabled pager or cell phone. The NEWPORT®iSeries device (meter or controller) connects directly to the Ethernet Network-not to the serial port of a computer functioning as a "server" and "master" to "slave" instruments connected through serial communications. The iSeries devices are also available with RS-232/422/485 and MODBUS serial communications. (Specify the C24 option.) In fact, the iSeries are the first instruments of this type which include all these serial protocols on one device, selectable from a menu.
devices work well with conventional industrial automation, data acquisition
and control programs as well as Microsoft Visual Basic and Excel. NEWPORT®
provides free software and demos which makes it fast and easy to get up
and running with many applications.
server as HUB/Server for up to 32 Devices
server controller with C4EI option as HUB for up to 32 Devices
Serial Communication connections using PC with RS-485 Serial Communication
The iSeries server is an alternate way to connect iSeries devices to an Ethernet LAN or Internet. Instead of Connecting each iSeries device directly to the Ethernet network, with individual IP Addresses for each device, the iSeries server can be a HUB/Server for up to 32 devices.
