NAPERVILLE, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/26/14 -- Grid Connect (gridconnect.com), a manufacturer and distributor of embedded networking products, has introduced the NET232+, the next generation of serial device servers. The NET232+ helps extend the life and utility of existing RS-232 serial devices by providing a simple solution to enable them to connect to the network via Ethernet and TCP/IP.
The NET232+ is a full-featured device server that delivers serial data rates up to 921kbps and auto-sensing 10/100Mbps Ethernet. This product supports up to four TCP connections (or a mixture of TCP and UDP). It also supports DNS, email serial triggers, email authentication, and 256-bit AES encryption at no additional charge. A debug trace feature helps troubleshoot the serial connection.
The NET232+ features an industrial grade temperature range, a factory reset push button, detailed LED status indicators, and an updated configuration web page.
The product is simple to configure using free installation software. Just connect the NET232+ to a serial device and to the local Ethernet network and run the software to find and set up the NET232+. It can be used in pairs to tunnel serial data between them over the Internet, or stand-alone connected to a serial device on RS-232 and to a host computer on Ethernet. The host computer can open a direct TCP connection or use the virtual COM port software.
The NET232+ is backward compatible with Grid Connect's previous generation NET232 product.
