This little box contains everything you need for attaching USB devices to a network.
Regardless of whether used as an extension over your network or together with other user devices such as scanners, printers, dongles, measuring instrumentation, etc. : USB devices connected to the USB Server behave just as if they were connected directly to your Windows PC.
You can connect any traditional and isochronal USB devices or USB-Server to your accustomed applications! Support of all USB modes (bulk, control, interrupt and isochronal) ensures problem-free and uninterrupted communication with your devices.
Tip: Take advantage of the easier handling and price difference between devices with USB port compared with devices having a built-in network terminal.
Windows core driver:
The PC-side USB Redirector is implemented as a Windows core driver, which ensures full and robust integration into the plug-and-play system. The benefit for you: As with a local connection, the USB device requires no user login. Network faults, network interruptions, power failures are protected against with automatic restart.
Full-scale network connection:
Communication between the USB Redirector and the USB Server can take place cross-network or through routers. Your advantage: Install your USB device in the server room and then access it -wide.
Real USB connections for virtual machines:
Integrating actual USB peripherals into virtual systems is often problematic. The W&T USB Redirector maps the virtual USB ports in the virtual guest systems cleanly to the actual USB ports on the USB Server. No changes to the host system, no modifications to drivers or applications are needed - it’s as if nothing has changed.
W&T has been developing and producing interfaces for industrial use for over 25 years and has always focused on the ruggedness and stable function of our devices. The USB Server is designed for 24/7 operation and features:
- Power from 24-48VDC source or PoE
- DIN rail mounting
- Enhanced noise immunity
- Galvanic isolation (PC <> USB device)
We stand by our word: "We’re compatible with everything."
If your particular USB device with its special driver and special version level in fact refuses to run, we will analyze precisely what makes your USB device so unique. As a rule this is all it takes to change the behavior of our USB Server so that it also works with your device.
If even that does not provide a resolution, you will receive an exact technical error analysis. You can use this if needed to solve the problem with the help of the manufacturer of your USB device.
We can guarantee all this because the vast majority of devices work the first time without any problem.
