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.


Brainboxes has engineered its Ethernet to Serial devices to operate completely autonomously.  This means our new 4 and 8 port RS232 devices, as with our 1 and 2 port devices, will enable connection across a network with no loss of reliability or signal integrity. Brainboxes’ Ethernet to Serial connectivity options are ideal for installations such as refineries, large manufacturing plants and warehouses.



Brainboxes’ Ethernet to Serial products allow large quantities of information to be transferred through each serial port coupled with a fast Ethernet connection. The increased control and automation, through your existing network infrastructure, can help you reduce your costs and improve efficiency whilst our IP30 rated metal cases are strong enough for industrial applications, yet smart enough for any office environment. All of which makes them perfect for a wide and varied range of applications including: ATM machines, barcode scanners, refrigeration and heating controls, medical devices, security controls, weather stations and electronic key systems.


Eamonn Walsh, Managing Director of Brainboxes says; “With the release of the ES-701 and the ES-279 we are building upon the proven success of our 1 & 2 port Ethernet to Serial servers, and we are meeting the needs that our customers clearly expressed to us for high port count products that provide simple instant networked serial devices.”


The Ethernet to Serial range comes with Microsoft signed drivers for Windows 7 and XP 32-bit & 64-bit editions.
