RS485 to Ethernet Converters
RS485 to Ethernet Converters are small electronic devices which can convert Ethernet IP/TCP packets to either RS232, RS485 or RS422 serial data signals and vice versa. These RS232 to Ethernet Converters are ideal for connecting RS232 / RS422 / RS485 devices like CNC’s, PLC’s, scales, scanners and other industrial and commercial devices directly to a 10/100Mbps Ethernet network running TCP/IP either over a local LAN network or over the Internet via a VPN.
Most commonly it is used for connecting a serial RS232, RS485 or RS422 device such as a serial printer, barcode scanner, scale, GPS, sensor or any other consumer or industrial device with a serial interface, to a computer over a standard LAN network. The advantage of this is obvious; you will be able to control, monitor and communicate with your serial device remotely from a central computer.
No need to walk all the way down to the other end of the factory to check your serial device.
