Description

The Industrial Solution for USB via Network!

The INU-100 USB Deviceserver integrates almost every non-network-ready USB device into the most diverse industrial environments with TCP/IP networks. No matter if it's a dongle, a mass storage device, cameras, or sensors—almost every USB device can be used flexibly and independent of location with the INU-100 just as your individual environment requires it. USB 3.0 assures data transmission at future-proof top speeds.

The INU-100 is mounted on a top-hat rail in a control cabinet. Integration is smooth as the power supply can be chosen freely. Once the device is embedded into the network, connected USB devices can be controlled via remote access. The connection merely has to be established manually or automatically with the corresponding software tool SEH UTN Manager. One device can also be connected to the integrated relay and can then be controlled automatically or manually.

Reliability and high availability are of utmost importance for industrial environments. That is why the INU-100 can be connected to two power supplies and why it has an automatic configuration backup to microSD card with which its settings can be transferred to another device. Events and errors can be messaged to a person responsible for fast diagnosis and repair. Management and maintenance of the INU-100 can be done via remote access, just as required by a productive industrial environment.

Application Scenarios

  • Installation of sensor networks via TCP/IP linking, e.g. in industry 4.0 implementations
  • Installation of camera-based monitoring and inspection with cost-effective USB cameras
  • Installation of distributed, dongle-based multi-factor security solutions
  • Integration of mass storages devices into production environment TCP/IP networks, e.g. for storing sensor data or videos locally
  • Relay-based messages in case of INU-100 events and errors
  • A signaling device (e.g. optical and/or acoustic) can be connected to the relay and signal critical conditions (e.g. in case a power supply fails or if a USB device is deactivated) in order to inform a person responsible
  • Automatization with SNMP: Devices connected to the relay can be turned on or off with SNMP traps (e.g. a device can be turned off if the UPS fails or a fan can be turned on if the room temperature crosses a certain threshold)
