The Cablemax CM-SAN-232D is an Ethernet to RS-232 Serial Bridge where up to twelve network devices may be connected simultaneously operating as both a network server and a client.
As a serial bridge, this Ethernet to RS232 serial dongle has an Integrated 802.3 compliant 10 / 100 Mbps network interface and is an ideal tool to network peripherals with the ability to connect up to 12 network devices for both sending and receiving of UDP and TCP packets.
The Cablemax CM-SAN-232D is an Ethernet to RS-232 Serial Bridge. It may be used to connect any standard serial communications device such as a PC, and audio / video distribution system, industrial equipment, scientific instruments, etc., to an Ethernet network. It allows bi-directional communication between the two.
It operates as both a network server and a client, which means it is able to both initiate and accept network connections. Once a network connection is made, the remote networked device or computer is virtually connected to the serial device on the other side of the Bridge. Both the network device and the serial device can send and receive messages to and from each other.
Up to twelve network devices may be connected simultaneously. Data sent from any one of them is bridged to the serial port. Data received on the serial side is transmitted to all connected network devices. The bridge can send and receive both UDP and TCP packets.
