Deliver your Protocol from Ethernet to a Serial Device

SIXNET has enhanced its line of Industrial Ethernet Gateways. The EtherTRAK ET-GT-485-1 and ET-GT-232-1 are more capable than before and now support other protocols in addition to SIXNET, Modbus ASCII, and Modbus RTU. These products are ideal for connecting one or more RS232 and RS485 slave devices to Ethernet. This new capability allows you to pass one user-selected protocol from Ethernet to one or multiple slave devices connected to the serial port and pass the response to these messages back to the master. With this feature, the user can be assured that the message content will not be altered in any manner. The entire contents within the IP packet will be delivered as is.
