AMC NetPort II - New Generation Cost-Effective Ethernet to RS-232/RS-485/PoE Cable Adaptor

The latest generation Alpha Micro NetPort II is a 'plug-and-play' Serial-to-Ethernet cable adaptor, offering RS-232, RS-485 and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) options for rapid network and Internet enabling.

Alpha Micro Components' NetPort II is the latest generation of our successful 'plug-and-play' Serial-to-Ethernet cable adaptors that enable any device or machine with a serial port, to become network and Internet-enabled in an instant.

The external NetPort II adaptor features an integrated web server, allowing any device to which it is attached to be 'contacted' and monitored via a standard Internet browser. TCP/IP protocol stacks are embedded into the NetPort II, enabling it to operate within non-PC environments and the adaptor features a Modem Emulation Mode, allowing it to behave like a modem but communicate over TCP/IP.

Based upon the award winning Lantronix XPort device, the NetPort II can be integrated into a system with minimal set-up. A configuration utility is provided which allows quick and easy customisation to suit any network or serial device.

Virtual Comm Port drivers are provided to allow a NetPort II-connected device to communicate with existing software over TCP/IP (for Windows operating systems). Alternatively, 'direct socket' connection can be used.
