HW group: PortBox 2
Ethernet connectivity for a serial port
The HW group Portbox 2 connects a RS-232 port as well as an RS-485 bus to an Ethernet network.
The application HWg VSP (Virtual Serial Port), which provides a virtual COM-port driver, simulating a serial port on the PC, is included at no extra charge.
In Box-to-Box mode, 2 devices can be connected via LAN, in order to tunnel the serial port’s signals.
The PortBox 2 is configured via a web interface.
The device is hardware- and software-compatible with PortBox PL.
