Serial to Ethernet Converter
The Serial-to-Ethernet Converter is designed to attach to any RF IDeas RS-232 prox/contactless reader or Wiegand converter and provide for attachment to a RJ45 Ethernet connection. The converter comes with software that includes a redirector. This redirector takes the Ethernet address (static or dynamic) and redirects the traffic to a virtual COM port on a Windows PC.
For example, if the converter is attached to a pcProx-232 reader and taking address 192.168.0.5. The user runs the redirector software on their PC and sets the address to address 192.168.0.5, and chooses an available COM Port (ex COM4). The user's software or the pcProx Configuration application sees this pcProx reader as a standard serial reader at COM 4. No software or other changes are necessary.
