Do you have equipment with RS-232/422/485 or current loop interfaces that you have left unconnected? Many new and existing installations have equipment with unused ports for programming, monitoring or diagnostics. With B&B's Vlinx Serial Servers, you can put all those ports to work for you.
Simply connect the Vlinx server to the equipment's serial port, and connect the Vlinx Ethernet port to your LAN. Your equipment is now online. It will appear as a local COM port on any networked PC running our Virtual Serial Port software. No software customization required, just run the appropriate software for your equipment.
B&B Electronics' new Model ESP906CL integrates the benefits of Ethernet communications with existing serial devices by offering four configurable RS-232/422/485 serial ports and two digital current loop ports. The Ethernet connection will auto select 10BaseT or 100BaseTX. The ESP906CL provides a Windows host control over serial devices located virtually anywhere on a TCP/IP or UDP/IP Ethernet connection. It even gives authorized users control over the connected serial device or the ESP906CL Menu from anywhere outside the LAN.
