Product Description
NetCom 811 RM is an industrial-strength network-based serial device server for connecting eight RS232 device like CNC, PLC, weighting scale, scanner and other devices directly to the 10/100Mbps Ethernet network running TCP/IP. In addition to allowing serial devices to get networked, any host (PC Server or Workstation) without network access can also access remote serial device via adding ES-E series devices to the existing serial port. NetCom 811 RM can be configured over Driver Panels, WEB Browser, serial Port, Telnet, SNMP and serves as a transparent serial channel without platform and distance limitation.

Raw data transfer over TCP/IP. Accepts multiple incoming connections.

TCP Raw Client

Raw data transfer over TCP/IP. Connects to multiple hosts or devices waiting for incoming connections.

TCP Advanced Settings

Special settings for user-defined modes

UDP Mode

Raw data transfer by UDP. The NetCom is client and server at the same time. With the timeout functionality and a configurable trigger string it can make defined UDP packets of incoming data.

Null Modem Tunnel

Connecting two NetCom used as virtual null modem cable.

IP Modem

The serial port emulates a standard modem. Operates by AT-commands, and dials to IP-Addresses instead of phone numbers.
Windows "INF"-Driver provided for installation.

Print Server

The NetCom accepts print jobs, and spools them to the attached serial printer. Operates as of RFC1197, similar to the line printer daemon in Unix-systems
