Embedded Ethernet Device Server

  • Minimal engineering effort required to web-enable virtually any electronic device
  • Remote command and control of edge devices
  • 256-bit AES encryption for secure communications
  • EMC/EMI-compliant; RoHS-compliant
  • Everything you need — all in a single RJ45 package

My Manager has just assigned me the task of adding internet connectivity to our series of high pressure pumps and controllers. Typically we have connected these through an RS-485 daisy chain.  The expectation is to add networking in such a way that there is minimal hardware and software changes and  the boss wants a full demo in just a month!  Using my superior search skills (aka Google), I found the Lantronix XPort device server and tried it out using their Evaluation Kit. Within just an hour (including a latte), the demo board was talking to our equipment via the serial tunneling capability.  I am confident I will get the whole system working over Ethernet for the demo with plenty of time to spare.  Lantronix rocks!

Overview for XPort

Build Serial to Ethernet Connectivity and Control into Your Products, Quickly and Simply

XPort is a compact, integrated solution to web enable virtually any device with serial capability. By incorporating XPort to a product design, manufacturers can quickly and easily offer serial to Ethernet networking capability as a standard feature — so equipment can be accessed and controlled over the Internet.

Full Networking in a Tiny Package

XPort embedded Ethernet device server removes the complexity – of designing network connectivity into a product by incorporating all of the required hardware and software inside a single embedded Ethernet solution. Smaller than your thumb, it includes all essential networking features, including a 10Base- T/100Base-TX Ethernet connection, proven operating system, an embedded web server, e-mail alerts, a full TCP/IP protocol stack, and 256-bit AES encryption for secure communications. This easy-to-embed networking processor module enables engineers to focus on their core competency while reducing development time and cost and increasing product value.

Integrated Network Communications Module

XPort is powered by our DSTni network processor SoC, which includes a 10/100 MAC/PHY and 256 KB of SRAM. It features a built-in web server for communications with a device via a standard Internet browser. Web capability can be used for remote configuration, real-time monitoring or troubleshooting. XPort has 512 KB of onmodule Flash for web pages and software upgrades. It acts as a dedicated co-processor that optimizes network activities permitting the host microprocessor to function at maximum efficiency.

Building Intelligent Devices

With XPort you can embed intelligence into any electronic product for applications such as:

  • Remote diagnostics and upgrades
  • Asset tracking and replenishment
  • Automation and control
  • Power management
  • Remote collaboration
  • Personalized content delivery

Robust, Feature-Rich Software Suite

Eliminating the need to negotiate the intricacies of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or Internet Protocol (IP), XPort incorporates:

  • Robust Real Time Operating System (RTOS)
  • Full-featured network protocol stack
  • Built-in web server for device communication and configuration via a standard browser

The Windows-based DeviceInstaller makes configuring one or more XPorts in a subnet quick and easy.

  • Install and configure XPort and load firmware
  • Assign IP & other network specific addresses
  • Load custom web pages and view specific device data
  • Enable web-based configuration of the device
  • Ping or query the attached device(s) over the network
  • Allow Telnet communication with the device(s)
