The eDIO-232 is a dual Ethernet to Serial converter with 2 serial ports, 3 mains relay outputs and 8 digital inputs. There is one dedicated RS232 port whist the other port can be either RS232, Rs422 or RS485. Serial data can be sent directly through a TCP/IP connection using Virtual Serial Port software or directly. The 3 mains rated relay outputs can be controlled by writing a control word to the TCP port. Digital input status is automatically reported on state change or can be obtained though a simple TCP port request.
Relay 1 - send 10000000 for on, 0000000 for off
Relay 2 - send 01000000 for on, 0000000 for off
Relay 3 - send 00100000 for on, 0000000 for off
A pair of eDIO-232's can be set up in Client-Server mode where they will send RS232 data and digital IO data between each other without any PC intervention.
CVBrowser is a simple tool to detect and configure the installed EDIO device. CVBrowser allows you to set the IP address and TCP/IP port to suit your Network. Users can then use any web-browser to configure the advanced settings of EDIO device hardware such as Baud rate, socket port, serial I/O and etc.VirtualSerialPort ConsoleVirtualSerialPort 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 software 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.
