Serial Ethernet Adapter



A Serial Ethernet Adapter, also known as a Serial Ethernet IP adapter is a one/two/four port Ethernet to remote serial interface converter that allows you to place RS232 serial devices anywhere on a TCP/IP Ethernet WAN/LAN, in turn allowing the serial peripheral to perform as though it were situated locally. Typical applications include long range security, point of sale and industrial automation.
