Serial to Ethernet (S2E) products facilitate RS232 or RS422/485 communications over existing Ethernet networks by ingeniously packing serial data in to an Ethernet frame and moving the data to the relevant location (typically a PC) using IP addressing. It is an ideal way to reduce cabling duplication or to overcome the 15m distance limitation of RS232. Many customers have expressed a concern about their lack of knowledge of Ethernet or the associated networking protocols. Fear not! The user needs little information and what knowledge is required can be quickly supplied by Amplicons technical sales and support team free of charge!
