The Comtrol DeviceMaster RTS 1-Port Embedded VDC 99470-1 product is a single-port embedded device server designed for network-enabling serial components inside a larger system, such as a kiosk, mail sortation system, or cash machine.

When used with the included NS-Link™ driver software and a host PC, the DeviceMaster RTS embedded ethernet interface enables placement of COM or TTY ports anywhere on an Ethernet network or across the Internet. In applications where connecting legacy serial devices to a PC without software changes is a requirement, a pair of DeviceMaster RTS units can be used to create a point-to-point serial tunnel across the network that seamlessly transfers serial data via TCP or UDP socket connections. This product is RoHS 2 compliant under CE.
