CostCost-effective Solutions of RS-232 / RS-422 / RS-485 for Industrial Ethernet Applications
PLANET ICS-210x Serial over Ethernet Converter series is specially designed to convert serial RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485 communication into Industrial Fast Ethernet networking and help to extend the network distance efficiently and inexpensively. There are SC and LC connectors with single-mode or multi-mode media available in the ICS-210x series for your network needs. The ICS-210x 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.

Efficiently Extending Network Distance
The ICS-210x series includes models ICS-2102, ICS-2102S15 and ICS-2105A. The ICS-2102 and ICS-2102S15 media converters can extend the deployment distance of serial equipment by 2km and 15km. The ICS-2105A, especially equipped with one SFP fiber slot (mini-GBIC 100Base-FX SFP, Small-Form Factor Pluggable), supports the deployed distance extension from 2km (via multi-mode fiber) up to 120 kilometers (via single-mode fiber) or longer. The ICS-210x series perfectly meets the diverse demands in various industrial network environments and provides reliable network solutions within your budget of installation.

Remote Management
The ICS-210x series makes the connected serial equipment become IP-based facilities and able to connect to a TCP/IP network immediately. It also provides Web Management Interface for efficient remote network management. The powerful Web Smart Media Converter series supports application mode and serial operation mode for alarm or IP address connection, which saves the network administrator’s time by detecting and locating network problems without visual inspection of the cabling and equipment. Multiple connection options are available for large networking environment as well.

Stable Performance under Difficult Environments
The ICS-210x series 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. The feature of operating temperature range from -10 to 60 degrees C allows the ICS-210x series to be placed in almost any difficult environment.

The ICS-210x series is equipped with compact IP30 standard metal case that allows either DIN rail or wall mounting for efficient use of cabinet space. The ICS-210x series 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.
