No stock, discontinued
Ethernet to RS422 or Ethernet to RS485 LAN Serial converters/server with Power Over Ethernet (POE). The E-P232-X5 has a single serial port that can be RS422 or RS485
The E-P232-X5-POE is a single port Serial to Ethernet converter that can network-enable your serial devices, such as weigh scales, PLCs, Data acquisition systems, point of sale, bar code scanners, access control systems, gas meters, printers - anything! No power supply is need as the unit is powered from a POE compatible Ethernet connection.Connect it to your network via a standard RJ45 connector, set-up its' IP address and TCP port number and you are away. With the supplied Virtual Com port software you can simply communicate with your serial device as if it were connected to the back of your PC. Programmers can communicate directly with the E-P232 using standard TCP/IP protocols.
A pair of E-P232's can be set up in Client-Server mode where they will send serial data between each other without any PC intervention.
VirtualSerialPort Console is a COM port redirection software application for Windows PC platforms. Its function is to re-direct customer application data destined for a local serial (COM) port on a PC. Rather than going out the local port, the data is transmitted across the Ethernet network using TCP/IP. The eDIO attached to the network receives the data and presents it on its serial port. Conversely, data into the serial port of the eDIO-100 is sent back to the customer application via the network to the VirtualSerialPort Console software. The VirtualSerialPort Console software then presents the data to the customer application as if it were from a local serial COM port.
One of the main objectives of the VirtualSerialPort Console softwar is to eliminate the need for a customer to modify their application. If the application knows how to connect to a local serial port, it can by default talk to a remote serial port on a device server using the VirtualSerialPort Console software. No understanding of how to develop networking software is required.
