DS/WS110x

Introduction

The DS/WS110x is a family of compact BASIC-programmable controllers designed for serial-over-IP and serial control applications.

The DS/WS110x family currently includes:

  • WS1102 — BASIC-programmable wireless serial controller featuring Wi-Fi and BLE interfaces on the network side, and an RS232/422/485 port on the serial side.
  • DS1100/1/2 — wired serial controllers equipped with an Ethernet port:
    • The DS1100 is an entry-level, economically priced serial controller with a standard RS232 port.
    • The DS1101 is a powerful serial controller with a 3.5-channel RS232 port.
    • The DS1102 has the same features as the DS1101, but is equipped with a 3-channel RS232/422/485 port.

DS/WS110x devices are supported by the TIDE software and ship preloaded with a fully functional Serial-over-IP application. Written in Tibbo BASIC, the application is compatible with Tibbo Device Server Toolkit software, comes with full source codes, and can be modified by the user.

Yes(4)

  1. The Wi-Fi and PoE options are mutually exclusive.
  2. The DTR and DSR lines are not available if serial debugging is enabled.
  3. Requires Wi-Fi auto-connects (automatic association with a wireless network) to be enabled.
  4. The WS1102 inherits this and all other advanced features from the WM2000 Programmable Wireless IIoT Module, with which it shares the Wi-Fi/BLE SoC.
