Redundant SCADA server to DH+ PLCs

Q. 1. Will this device work as a common connection from redundant SCADA servers to DH+ PLCs (PLC5)? Both SCADA servers are on-line and poll simultaneously?
2. Will this device work with servers running MS Server 2008?
3. This device will be mounted within a server rack with 110 VAC only. Is there a power supply option to accommodate this?

A.
1) Yes, up to 4 connections are supported
2) Please consult your software vendor for compatibility with MS server 2008.
3) We do not sell power supplies. Please source a 24 Volt DC power supply.
The GW1000 consumes approximately 100mA, so a power supply with a 500mA rating is plenty. The device ships with screw terminals for power supply connection. The GW1000 can also be powered by a USB port, however, we don’t recommend USB power for large DH+ networks. For maximum reliability, we recommend an external 24Volt DC power supply.
