General description:

EtherSync is a global device management product which allows the user to connect 8x USB devices to an Ethernet network and control, and charge, them remotely. EtherSync does not require a computer in order to connect the USB devices to the network which is great for security conscious applications such as banking, retail and law enforcement agencies.

Internally, EtherSync runs a version of Linux which handles the 8x USB device connections and routes these as USB over IP to a client application which is installed on a remote computer. This computer can then ‘see’ the 8x USB devices and communicate with them as if they were connected locally to that computer. Other computers can also choose to connect to the remote USB devices as necessary. This is all performed through our client app called EtherSync Connector.

In essence, you can communicate with your USB devices from anywhere in the world whilst EtherSync will also keep the devices battery charged using our universal charging protocol.

EtherSync is supplied pre configured with a MAC address and strong, unique admin password although we offer an intuitive WebMin interface for further configuration of EtherSync features.

Updating the EtherSync firmware is quick and can be performed locally with an SDCard or remotely over the Ethernet network.

All versions of EtherSync support our application programming interface (API) which allows you to automate, monitor and control each port programatically. With the API you can monitor current consumption of each individual port, total connection time, charging time, control the front panel LEDs, turn power on/off to individual ports, emulate different charging profiles, read USB VID/PID and much more.

The API is available as a free download and is updated regularly and is well documented.

We also supply our Live Viewer App which allows you to monitor and control ports using a graphical user interface.

The API consists of a service module or daemon that is loaded on the host computer. The service module is accessed via JSON-RPC calls over a TCP/IP socket. Cambrionix provides sample Python code complete with the necessary JSON library code to be able to make the necessary calls for controlling Cambrionix products that are connected to the host computer.

It is of course possible to access the API from any programming environment that has support for making JSON-RPC calls over a TCP/IP socket.

To use EtherSync, simply connect the power and network cables and download our client software. Or, if you are a more advanced user, download our API for full control.

If you require additional ports, beyond the standard 4 or 8, then you can daisy-chain additional EtherSync units using the built-in Gigabit Ethernet switch which is accessible via the rear panel RJ45 connectors.

The rack mountable EtherSync is available without an MOQ and volume discounts are available and start at 50 units.
