RS232 Ports: 1
Special order, 7-14 day despatch
The GNOME232 is an inexpensive 10/100 Ethernet to RS232 converter. Suitable for extending the RS232 serial line over the Ethernet. Virtual serial port. Power supply ranging from 5 up to 30V. Protocols: TCP/IP, UDP. Configuration via web interface.
Inexpensive 10/100 Ethernet to RS232 converter. Suitable for extending the RS232 serial line over the Ethernet. Virtual serial port. Power supply ranging from 4.5 up to 75V. Protocols: TCP/IP, UDP. Configuration via web interface.
GNOME232 is a simple and inexpensive converter of the 10/100 Ethernet to RS232. This “dwarf” enables easy connection of devices with the RS232 interface to the Ethernet and is able to extend a serial line to another part of the world via the Internet.
The device is supplied including a “virtual serial port”, i.e. software which creates a new serial port in the Windows operating system directed to the GNOME232 module via the Ethernet interface. The RS232 line in the GNOME232 module is connected the same way as a standard RS232 connector in a PC. Thus it is possible to use also programs which only communicate via a serial port and are not designed to communicate over the Ethernet.
The GNOME232 can be configured via web interface (in Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer) or serial line. The module understands even the DHCP protocol so an IP address can be assigned automatically to it. Power supply and functionality is indicated by light indicators.
Com Port Redirector
Com Port Redirector (CPR) is software that maps ‘virtual COM’ ports on a PC platform. It redirects application data destined to an attached device via the PC’s local serial (COM) port. Rather than going out the local port, the data is transmitted across the Ethernet network using TCP/IP. A device server attached to the network receives the data and transfers it from its own serial port to the attached equipment.
Conversely, data sent from the networked equipment to the serial port of the device server is transmitted back to the application software on the PC via Ethernet. Com Port Redirector receives the data and presents it to the control application as if it came from a COM port via a local serial connection.
