The TCPConv is available for institutions looking addthepossibility of use authenticationcard readers on printersthat do notdirectly connect thereader.
TCPConv 2 allows connecting a device with USB- or RS232-interface to an Ethernet network. A typical application is the extension of a network device (e.g. a network printer) by a local peripheral device.
Simply insert TCPConv 2 into the existing LAN connection of your device. In order to do so, TCPConv 2 contains 2 LAN ports, which operate as a network router.
The TCPConv 2 is an Ethernet Router where we can connect RFID readers into the network. This is a cost-effective solution enabling to retrofit entire corporate networks with RFID readers. With the help of two LAN ports and a range of protocols, the compact TCPConv can easily be inserted into the LAN in front of many different endpoint devices such as printers and the like. Two RJ45 10/100BaseT sockets serve as Ethernet connectors. Apart from TCP, the converter communicates using protocols such as IPv4, IPv6 (optional), DHCP, ARP, and PING. It also operates with MDI or MDI-X.
The Elatec TWN3 and TWN4 Multi readers can then be connected via the TCPConv's RS232 and USB interfaces – to authorise print jobs, for instance. This enables to integrate LAN peripheral devices of various kinds smoothly into the RFID infrastructure of office and access control solutions.
They can be used on PaperCut in the implementation of “Fast Release” feature, also as another method of authentication for users on printers.
