The DSPLE000 was designed to act as a nexus for industrial data collection and management. With three built in serial ports and a 10 Base-T/100 Base-TX Ethernet port, the unit performs protocol conversion, allowing disparate devices to communicate seamlessly with one another. The Ethernet port supports up to ten protocols simultaneously using Crimson 3, so even Ethernet to Ethernet conversion may be performed.

The CompactFlash card allows new configuration files to be loaded into the DSPLE000. The USB port may be used for blazing fast file downloads, or to mount the CompactFlash card as an external drive to your PC. The Data Station’s DIN rail mounting saves time and panel space and snaps easily onto standard top hat (T) profile DIN rail

The DSPLE000 is programmed with Crimson 2.0 or Crimson 3.0 software for Windows® 2000 or later platforms. The software is an easy to use graphical interface which can be purchased as part of a kit that includes a manual and cables, or downloaded free of charge from www.redlion.net.
