Ethernet to Serial Converter
The ES-2 connects RS-232 serial devices—such as NTS Modem Ports, NTS Application Card Service Ports, and any other external equipment (microwave, control devices, etc.) to an IP-based Ethernet LAN. This makes it possible for device management software to access serial devices from anywhere over a local LAN or the Internet. The ES-2 makes your industrial serial devices Internet-ready in no time.
The ES-2 ensures the compatibility of network software that uses a standard network API (Winsock or BSD Sockets) by providing TCP Server Mode, TCP Client Mode, and UDP Mode. And, thanks to the ES-2 real COM/TTY drivers, software that works with COM/TTY ports can be set up to work over a TCP/IP network without modifying your serial COM software applications. This excellent feature preserves your software investment and lets you enjoy the benefits of networking your serial devices, instantly.
The ES-2 supports automatic IP configuration protocols (DHCP, BOOTP) and manual configuration via the handy web browser console. Both methods ensure quick and effective installation. And with ES-2’s Windows Utility, installation is very straightforward, since all system parameters can be stored and then copied to other device servers simultaneously.
