USB-Server Industry Isochron
- USB devices anywhere in the network -
|USB-Server Industry Isochron, model #53642|
The USB-Server Industry Isochron enables redirecting local USB ports to the network. Data traffic between the USB device and its specific driver is tunneled transparently, so that remote USB devices behave as if they were connected locally to your Windows PC. The associated USB Redirector for Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/2008R2/8/2012 automatically searches the network for USB-Servers. Using a simple mouse click USB devices are assigned (Virtual Plug) to the computer or disconnected (Virtual Unplug) from it. For automated adding of USB devices using a batch job or script, a command line tool is included.
The USB-Server Industry Isochron 53642 supports USB standard modes (Control, Interrupt, Bulk) as well as isochronous USB transmission. Until recently used mainly in the audio/video field, isochronous mode is becoming increasingly favored in measuring and analysis technology due to its guaranteed bandwidth.
The number is peripherals having USB ports is enormous - dongles, USB sticks, measuring devices, audio devices, webcams etc. are increasingly equipped with USB interfaces. Especially in industrial environments however the short permissible cable lengths, the absence of galvanic isolation and the lack of flexibility have made use of USB often problematic. A solution to many of these drawbacks is to redirect the USB ports into the network. Computers and USB servers can be anywhere in the world, and every Ethernet connection is by definition galvanically isolated. The alternating use of the USB device by multiple computers is accomplished by a simple mouse click and without cumbersome carrying around and re-plugging the device (application example: Dongle).
In virtual systems (Vmware, HyperV, Virtual Box etc.) linking the guest systems to the network terminal of the host system is generally a robust affair. In contrast, support of USB devices is usually much less convenient, so that it also makes sense here to access USB peripherals over the network.
