RF IDeas Ethernet 241 was designed to allow the card reader and application device to simultaneously communicate via an Ethernet connection, using a single network drop. The Ethernet 241 is designed to act as a two-port switch that provides a pass-thru Ethernet port for a printer and a second Ethernet port that is built into the device.
As with all RF IDeas products, the 241 has been designed to meet the identification and security needs of customers in many different applications and environments.
The 241 has two Ethernet connectors designated as the Network port and Printer port. The device also provides one RS-232 DB9 port that is intended for RF IDeas’ pcProx card readers that are powered through Pin 9 connectors (part numbers ending in AK5) and one 5 VDC port that is used to supply power to the unit via the supplied power adapter.
The Ethernet mode of operation will be configurable as: auto-negotiate 10 Mbps half duplex, 10 Mbps full duplex, or 100 Mbps full duplex. The Printer port will provide no management access to the 241, nor will it be assigned a MAC address. The Ethernet mode will be set to auto-negotiate.
The 241 has two configurable ports: One for tunneling to the RF IDeas’ configurable serial reader, the other for the 241 configuration.
