PoE Ethernet serial server supporting RS232 or RS485. Edgar is powered from an Ethernet cable using PoE 802.11af standard of from an external power supply.
For the communication, TCP server, TCP client or UDP can be used. In addition to standard types of communication, Edgar can send packets from / to the serial line via HTTP GET. From a web server, the data packet can be sent as an HTTP GET request. Similarly, if the data on a serial line - for example, from a connected barcode reader - comes in, the converter can send the data to the web server as an HTTP GET request.
Edgar comes in a rugged metallic enclosure and can be DIN rail mounted (optional).
Power output VOUT is mostly used in situations where the converter is powered from PoE. VOUT power output can power the connected device as well. Therefore no additional power supply is needed for the device connected to it.
Power output is DC and the voltage is determined by the switches on the side of the converter. Power output can be switched on or off using the web interface. The output voltages can be selected using a DIP switch on the side of the device. You can chose from the following options:
This feature allows data from the serial port to be sent as HTTP GET requests to a remote server. In the reverse direction, the data from the remote server can be sent to the serial line directly by replying to the GET request sent by the converter.
Edgar sent GET to the server and received a reply with data that should be send back to serial port
The connection can also be initiated from remote server side. The server sends HTTP GET to the set.xml script in the converter. Data can be sent as an ASCII character string or using hexadecimal form as binary data.
Edgar received GET reply from the server with data, that should be send to serial line
GET communication can be optionally secured with 128bit AES encryption.
