Moxa Rolls Out Embedded Network Enabler for Industrial Serial Devices

1/12/2004 - Moxa Technologies announces the launch of a new Embedded Network Enabler. The NE-4100T offers a complete Ethernet connectivity solution (TCP Server, TCP client, UDP) to network-enable your serial devices. With its compact size-only 45 x 36 mm, or less than half the size of your credit card-you can easily integrate NE-4100T into your serial device to make the device 10/100M Ethernet-ready.

NE-4100T's industrial-proven, built-in TCP/IP stack makes it easy for your R&D engineers to network-enable your serial device by reducing TCP/IP programming efforts. The 10/100M Ethernet auto-sensing interface lets you enjoy the higher transmission speed when available, and NE-4100T's 4 GPIO pins provide ample design flexibility, giving you the freedom to develop the features your customers need. NE-4100T's 5V design is better suited for today's equipment, and R&D engineers can spend less time implementing the power circuit.

NE-4100T comes with a reliable, ready-to-use TCP/IP communication firmware for fast integration. Configuration is done with a user-friendly Windows utility, Web browser, telnet console or serial console. In addition, a Windows-based NECI (Network Enabler Configuration Interface) Library is available to help you develop your own Windows utilities. NE-4100T has a standard pin space (0.254 mm) with a dual-in-line 26-pin design that lets you shorten the layout time and get your product to market in no time The built-in transformer ensures a noise-free signal, and also saves time and space when designing the Ethernet circuit.

Programmable version also available
A C-Programmable version is available for custom applications such as protocol conversion and front end data processing. The NE-4100T Software Development Kit (SDK) includes a Turbo C compiler and more than 100 Application Program Interface (API) functions for socket command and serial port control. Explanatory sample programs are also available to reduce your software developing time.


NE-4100T Starter Kit
The NE-4100T Starter Kit provides a quick and cost-effective way to evaluate this new product. The Starter Kit allows manufacturers to jumpstart their development work by providing the following items: an evaluation board assembly that includes NE-4100T, a universal power supply, configuration utility and software (on CD-ROM), status LEDs, and serial interface for easy connection to a PC.
