Product Information

Product Description

Made in the USA

The NET485 RS485 Ethernet adapter allows you to connect either RS422 or RS485 transceivers to Ethernet enabling remote serial communications up to 4,000 feet. This makes the device web enabled and eliminates the limitations generally imposed by cable length.

Two NET485s can be used as a cable replacement through the use of  "serial tunneling" through TCP/IP or Ethernet.

With the RS485 two-wire mode, you can connect the NET485’s serial interface to several devices within a multi-drop network.

The NET485 RS485 Ethernet adapter is based off of the XPort Serial to Ethernet device server. It provides the same features as a high performance device server, including a built-in web server for user customized web pages.
