    Serial Server

    Anyone have much luck doing rs232 to ip with a serial server. I have an old school rs232 comm for two plc controllers I plan to connect to a lan.

    Thumbs up We use both Moxa and Lantronix

    We use both Moxa and various Lantronix devices throughout our plants for serial to IP conversion.

    We have firmware for some of the Lantronix devices which translates RS485 Modbus into Modbus/TCP. Very convenient.

    I have an old Lantronix device on my workbench right now that I'm fooling with, trying to write a Program Object in Niagara AX to accept the connection from the device and parse the data as it comes in. Anyone have any sample code for me?

    I have used lantronix to transmit Rnet local access across the internet with SiteScan Web (WebCTRL). We were downloading memory to modules remotely. It was a short run project but seemed to work fine and wasn't a big deal to set up.
