Serial Port Splitter
Split serial ports and share serial data flows
RS232 Splitter is a versatile application that allows you to split one port among several applications in such way that they can all get the same data at the same time. Each application will communicate with a separate virtual port, while in reality they'll work with the same real port at a time. It is also possible to join several ports into one, redirect data from one port to another, create complex bundles. Serial Splitter works great with real COM ports as well as with virtual ones.
With new version Serial Port Splitter has added the switcher option to its baggage. Switcher allows to automatically determine the free port in the list of specified COM ports and assign it to the application that needs to work with it now. Moreover now Serial Splitter logs all events, so you can easily see which application opened the port and what parameters were used.
With Serial Port Splitter you can create
One-to-many ports connectionWith RS232 Splitter you can split one COM port into several virtual ones, which are exact copies of the original port in the system. For instance, Serial Splitter can split real COM1 into virtual COM2, COM3, COM4 ports.
Alternatively you can share one real port with device connected to it (i.e. GPS-receiver) among many applications without splitting it to several different virtual COM ports.
Many-to-one ports connectionSerial Port Splitter can join any number of COM ports into one virtual serial port, thus allowing information from several devices to be received by a single application connected to the port at the OUT side of the bundle
Many-to-many ports connectionSerial Splitter and its easy-to-understand assisting charts let you arrange complex bundles of COM-ports. You will be able to establish a connection between any number of real and virtual serial ports in either incoming or outgoing direction. Besides serial port data transmission, Serial Splitter provides the option to set Main Port for each side (IN/OUT) to manage control lines of a corresponding serial port.
Ports switcherWith switcher you can enhance the work with those application that can work with a limited quantity of ports only. Simply specify one virtual port in such application and create a switcher for this port in Serial Splitter, where add all COM ports you'll need (and you can assign the same name to all of them for more convenient usage). So the program works with any free port Serial Splitter assigns to it as if it were always the same port.
