DPKP01H00

Network printer port expansion box
a printer port, Standard Edition

Product Description


SUNIX DevicePort® is the ideal choice to enable your current Legacy I/O devices networking. DPKP01H00 allows users to expand printer port over Ethernet connection, and it works as a PCIe add-on card operation on any windows based tiny desktop, laptop, or All-in-one system. It is provided with SUNIX DPL2000Q High-Performance Ethernet-Printer controller and exclusive I/O redirection technology. DevicePort® DPKP01H00 creates real time communication physical LPT port and Ethernet-LPT port hot-plug capability; user can expand legacy port easily without complex software configuration that improves deployment efficiency to achieve greater convenience for commercial automation applications.


Features

  • Expands one additional Printer LPT ports over Ethernet networking.
  • Works as a PCIe add-on card operating experience with Ethernet Hot-Plug capability.
  • DevicePort® Dock mode supports secured connection between PC host and DevicePort®.(*Note 1)
  • Built-in SUNIX DevicePort® DPL2000Q High-Performance Ethernet-UART/Printer controller.
  • SUNIX DevicePort® proprietary Ethernet I/O Redirection Technology. (*Note 2)
    – Port auto-mapping with real time data transmit and receive communication.
    – Physical LPT port accessed via device manager.
    – Up to 3 LPT ports working on windows system simultaneously.
  • Accesses tradition LPT port by using existing software and AP.(*Note 3)
  • Low power consumption design for Green Environment.
  • Certified by CE, FCC, VCCI, C-Tick, BSMI, RoHS, and Microsoft WHQL approval.LinuxWindows_newCEFCCRoHSWEEE
Note:
1. To prevent on-line spy recording, DevicePort® Dock Mode limits specific Ethernet port connection, and it does not works on router or switch operation.
2. Ethernet I/O Redirection technology is SUNIX proprietary protocol for COM, LPT, and digital IO expansion over categpry6/5 Ethernet cable.
3. LPT port does not support LPT Key Locker and other Parallel devices, but Printer only. It does not support legacy 278/378/3BC ISA address either.

Applications

1. Expand COM / LPT Port Over EthernetSmall PC form factor requirements grow and advance continuously to meet up-and-coming challenges and opportunities. SUNIX DevicePort® products are specifically developed to meet such requirements to replace current add-on card solution. User can expand legacy I/O ports over Ethernet connection that improves deployment efficiency to achieve greater reliability in commercial and industrial automation applications.
2. Auto-Detect & Port-MappingWith Ethernet hot-plug and system auto-detect capability, user can expand RS-232 COM and LPT port easily without complex software configuration. Just plug RJ45 Ethernet cable between SUNIX DevicePort® and PC host side, system will create physical COM/LPT ports automatically with real time data transmit and receive communication. User can easily access port by using existing software and application, no longer TCP sock protocol compiling.

3. Daisy Chain Topology
SUNIX DevicePort® product built-in dual 10/100 Ethernet channels, one for data downstream to PC host and the other upstream port for Ethernet switch connecting. With dual Ethernet channels feature, DevicePort® supports daisy chain network topology for multiple boxes connection. (Maximum 4 boxes or 12 COM / 3 LPT ports expansion).
