RS-232/422/485 to Ethernet/Wireless Serial Devices & Servers

The serial device servers enable RS-232/422/485 serial devices to be connected to a host computer over an Ethernet network quickly and cost-effectively.
No extra programming effort is required at the host computer, so software development costs can be saved.
Serial device servers are especially suitable for remotely controlling and monitoring your serial devices via the Ethernet.
