AMC-232LAN06 - Serial to Ethernet cable adapter
The AMC-232LAN06 NetPort is an Alpha Micro original design 'plug-and-play' Serial-to-Ethernet cable adapter that enables any device or machine with a serial port to become network and Internet-enabled in an instant. In addition, custom versions are available for use with Elster A1140 and A1700 3 phase electricity meters.
The external NetPort adapter 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 adapter 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.
