The NET485 RS485 Ethernet adapter allows you to connect either RS422 or RS485 transceivers in order to enable remote serial communications up to 4,000 feet, thus making the device web enabled and eliminating the limitations generally imposed by cable length. Additionally the RS485 Ethernet adapter also allows for "serial tunneling" of the device through TCP/IP or Ethernet allowing two devices to be used as a cable replacement.
With the RS485 two-wire mode, you can connect the NET485’s serial interface to several devices within a multi-drop network. The NET485 RS485 Ethernet adapter is based off of the XPort Serial to Ethernet device server, which provides the same features as a high performance device server, including a built-in web server for user customized web pages.
