Ethernet to RS232, Ethernet to RS422 or Ethernet to RS485 LAN Serial converters/server. They feature a simple setup procedure, ease of operation and automatic network recovery. Supplied with Programming examples and Virtual Serial Port software, to seamlessly add serial ports to your Network. The eNET-232 has a two serial ports, one RS232 and the other can be a RS232/422/485 RS485 port.
The eNET-232 is a dual 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!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 eNET-232 using standard TCP/IP protocols.
A pair of eNET-232's can be set up in Client-Server mode where they will send RS232 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 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.
