RS485 over Ethernet
Share RS485 to Ethernet
RS485 over Ethernet
You can share RS485 port over the Network, making use of TCP/IP network, and then you can return them to your serial port device from the network. Thanks to the utilization of serial port technology that imitates and takes COM ports to another level.
Serial port devices are shared for inbound connectionsIt is expected that the server will process inbound connections and then virtual RS485 port devices are shared over TCP/IP network. The presence of the server makes it possible for several clients to have access simultaneously. Every client that gains access can also transfer input/output serial data back to their virtual port device locally. Those types of applications are ones that are responsible for booting up external connection all the way to an IP or TCP type of server connection.
Linking serial port to a host/client from a remote locationIn this scenario, establishing a client-host connection will go a long way in helping RS422 port data to be transmitted to a server that is remotely hosted somewhere via TCP/IP protocol types. As a plus, to perform optimally, the client connection may not require RS485 over Ethernet Connector. The only important thing is to state the remote server's IP address, as well as input the value of a TCP port. As long as the connection is established successfully, it becomes easy to instantly transfer the info from the remote location to the local serial port for further processing.
Sharing RS485 port points through User Datagram ProtocolSerial to Ethernet connectors can also transfer info packages from serial port via Datagram Protocol with the advantage that there is no need for SEC in this case, as we have in client connection (Telnet protocol or Raw data algorithm). Also, similarly, it's possible to transmit all serial information over your local network
Serial to Ethernet Connector for Linux OS is availableFor those who use Linux OS, RS485 to Ethernet Connector works with Linux too. Now you are free to choose whether you want Windows or Linux OS to be a server or client; it's possible to broadcast over UDP too. One thing worth noting, however, is that Serial to Ethernet Connector for Linux exists as a command line presently.
There's also the availability of Serial to Ethernet Connector Linux version for ARM-based devices. It's now possible for you to share serial ports while on ARM devices and you can connect to remote devices as well. Please be informed that for this version to work on your device you need to install D-Bus.
