AMC NetPort - Ethernet to RS232 Cable Adaptor

NetPort is a 'plug-and-play' Serial-to-Ethernet cable adaptor that enables any device or machine with a serial port, to become network and Internet-enabled in an instant.

NetPort is a 'plug-and-play' Serial-to-Ethernet cable adaptor that enables any device or machine with a serial port, to become network and Internet-enabled in an instant.

The external NetPort 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, 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 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-connected device to communicate with existing software over TCP/IP (for Windows operating systems). Alternatively, 'direct socket' connection can be used.

Comprehensive development support is available from our team of experts.
