Ethernet to Serial devices first of a range of new products designed with industrial applications in mind

Liverpool UK -19th December 2012 Brainboxes, a leader in serial connectivity and networking, has launched the first two products in new range of industrial specification devices. As with all our Ethernet to Serial port devices these new products are designed to provide easy, fast and reliable connections between networked computers and devices with serial ports- be it across the desk or across the world. In addition the new ES-511 and ES-522 boast a host of additional features that make them suitable for the tough industrial environment.

As factories expand and modernise older equipment and remote devices need to be networked, but cabling can be expensive and impractical, especially over larger areas. Brainboxes’ Ethernet to Serial range is the smart and cost-effective solution to securely and remotely manage a wide range of serial accessories for various applications in an organisation. It is based on Brainboxes’ proven and familiar technology and of course comes with Brainboxes’ renowned lifetime support and lifetime guarantee.

Performance, power and temperature can be monitored remotely to make maintenance easier and along with redundant dual power inputs for extra reliability. The input voltage from +5V to +30V is ideal for the factory floor but allows configuring through a USB port.
