With the Grid Connect Net232 RJ45 to DB9 adapter, you can enable your legacy RS232 serial devices with Ethernet network and Internet connectivity allowing these devices to overcome their limitations and extend their life without costly upgrades and replacements.
The RS232 RJ45 adapter allows you to connect to any RS232-enabled device to your network quickly and easily. With fully functioning DB9 and RJ45 connectors, the adapter functions as a single-port device server, giving you the ability to seamlessly connect any RS232 powered device to your network. Installation is fast and simple, configuration settings can be accessed via a web server.
With two modes of operation -- Redirector and Serial Tunneling -- the RS232 RJ45 adapter can suit nearly any commercial or industrial application. The Redirector Mode only requires one NET232 per serial device, and the included ComPort Redirector Software can be installed on your Windows PC to establish a COM Port, which can be used in the same way that you would use a physical COM port. Serial Tunneling Mode creates a serial tunnel over Ethernet to connect two NET232 devices, effectively serving as a cable replacement. In serial tunneling mode no software installation is required, making this a good option for non-Windows environments.
RS232 RJ45 Adapter Use Cases and Easy Installation
The RS232 RJ45 adapter can be used in a variety of ways wherever a device server is used, including: fire and security panels, POS terminals, IT management services, power management, remote equipment management, and more. This RJ45 adapter can be used in any application that requires networking a simple serial device.
The device comes with an installation CD with manuals, as well as PC setup and Virtual COM Port Redirector software. A Device Installer program on the CD will locate the NET232 on your network, and you can then assign the port number and IP address, establish serial port parameters, and view complete configuration information for your device. The Quick Start guide will also help you configure your device quickly, and nearly all configuration settings are already predetermined for optimum performance.
