The GRIDlink FDS is a industrial data server which can communicate to many devices with different protocols all at the same time. Think of it as an Universal Interpreter that can bridge the communication gap between disparate serial, Ethernet and fieldbus devices, unlocking information previously unavailable due to incompatible communications standards.

Industrial in design and built for harsh environments, the Field Data Server will provide reliable service from plant floors to large commercial buildings and out to grid connected solar fields.

Operating Temperature -20° to 70°C

FDS supports up to 4 protocols simultaneously
