RS485 Ports: 1
Special order, 7-14 day despatch
The GNOME485 is a simple Ethernet to RS485 converter. It enables a device with RS485 to easily connect to the Ethernet, to extend the RS485 line via the Ethernet or to establish a network of RS485 via the Ethernet. Power supply 5 to 30V. Virtual serial port. Protocols: TCP/IP, UDP, SMTP (e-mail).

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 GNOME485 module via the Ethernet interface. Thus it is possible to use also programs which only communicate via a serial port.
The module can be configured via internal web interface (in Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer), configuration program or TCP terminal. The GNOME485 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.
A pair of GNOME485's can be set up in Client-Server mode where they will send serial data between each other without any PC intervention.
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.
