Here is the official list of hardware recommended by CIMCO for serial communications via DNC Max and CIMCO Edit:
CIMCO DNC-Max and CIMCO Edit (communications) work with all industry standard serial communication hardware devices including but not limited to multi-port serial adapters (PCI) and single/multi-port Ethernet (wired and wireless) serial device servers (converters) from MOXA (www.moxa.com), DIGI International (www.digi.com), and Quatech (www.quatech.com).
Because of the consistently high quality and reliability of device servers (wired and wireless) from MOXA we recommend the following devices for Ethernet based communications: NPort 5610-8, NPort 5610-16, NPort 5210 (and 5210A), NPort 5110 (and 5110A), NPort 2250 Plus US and NPort 2150 Plus.
For multi-port PCI serial adapters CIMCO recommends DIGI Neo Adapters and related concentrator boxes.
