San Francisco, California (PressExposure) July 24, 2013 -- FiberStore announced that the family of RS232 to Ethernet converters will be added to its product lineup in the next month. The new RS232 to Ethernet converters will become the best choice for transmitting series data across an IP network by utilizing the most flexible, high performance and advanced technology. New modes of the field-proven RS232 converters will be ideal for IT professionals to utilize in communicating with serial RS232 devices over an Ethernet network.
RS232 to Ethernet Converters convert RS485/RS422/RS233 serial communication interface to Ethernet plastic core cables. "Since CAT5 is inexpensive and commonly available, some users prefer to use Ethernet cabling for their serial equipment connections. FiberStore RS232 converters, with RJ45 connectors along with the appropriate DB9 or DB25 adapters make this possible." said Thorndike, director of FiberStore product division.
Thorndike also pointed out that FiberStore RS232 to Ethernet converter will be accomplished through the use of software Xon/Xoff flow control, as well as hardware flow control with RTS and CTS signaling between DTE and DCE
FiberStore RS232 to Ethernet converters family of interface converters connect fiber optic linked terminals to controller having either RS485 or RS232 interface ports, providing electrical to optical and optical to electrical conversion. The advantage of conversion to a fiber optic communication standard is that the data transmission is no longer susceptible to electrostatic or electromagnetic fields. Additionally, the ports of the connected terminals are protected from damage by potential differences (ground variations) that often exist between them.
"These new converters will be supplied complete with a 2-Pin external wall-mount power supply that provides 100VAC-240VAC, 50/60 Hz and is GS, CE, and RoHS certified shortly later in next month," said Thorndike. "Serial RS232 based software applications and devices were implemented around a simple direct cable connection, however as companies begin replacing their direct serial cable connections with a modern Ethernet infrastructure using serial RS232 to Ethernet converter products, some will experience difficulties in making this networked connection behave as it did when directly connected. This can be attributed to the lack of raw processing power as well as how the data is handled across the network by the RS232-Ethernet converters."
