The Etherstuff UDP32S UDP encoder generates UDP and/or serial text strings when one of its 32 inputs is triggered.
The UDP32S has 32 inputs – short an input to ground and the UDP32S generates the corresponding (user-programmable) UDP string – the same string of characters (full ascii support) is also sent out to both serial ports. Configuration is super easy – the unit supports DHCP so you just plug it in and the network configuration is automatic or you can manually program the IP address and other network particulars. The built-in webserver allows you to set up a text string (up to 32 characters) for each of the 32 inputs.
The UDP-32S has a built-in real-time clock, with configurable DST options and NTP update capability. The clock is used for two major features: input logging, and time-based events. The UDP32S has built-in SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) support for centralized monitoring. The unit’s time, input status,and settings are continually available in standard format for your SNMP monitoring system, and the unit can issue SNMP traps when input triggers occur.
