One port connects directly to the network or server, and the other port can be connected to either another NPort IA device server or another Ethernet device. The dual Ethernet ports help reduce wiring costs by eliminating the need to connect each device to a separate Ethernet switch. NPort® IA5000A Series 1, 2, and 4-port serial device servers for industrial automation › ›Enhanced surge protection for LAN/serial/power › ›2 kV isolation for serial signals (isolation models) › ›Screw-type terminal blocks for secure power/serial connections › ›C1D2, ATEX, and IECEx certified for harsh industrial environments › ›Cascading Ethernet ports for easy wiring › ›Redundant DC power inputs › ›Warning by relay output and email › ›-40 to 75°C operating temperature range (T models) The NPort IA5000A series device servers are designed for connecting industrial automation serial devices, such as PLCs, sensors, meters, motors, drives, barcode readers, and operator displays. The device servers are built solid with a metal housing, screw connectors, and Cascading Ethernet Ports Make Wiring Easy (10/100BaseTX models only) Overview provide full surge protection. The NPort IA5000A series device servers are extremely user-friendly, making simple and reliable serial-to- Ethernet solutions possible. The NPort IA5000A series device servers have two power inputs that can be connected simultaneously to live DC power sources. If one power source fails, the other source takes over automatically. Redundant power inputs help ensure uninterrupted operation of your device server. Redundant Power Inputs Dual Power Inputs
