The NetCom+ 411 is an industrial-strength network-based serial device servers for connecting four RS232 devices like CNC, PLC, weighting scale, scanner and others directly to a network running TCP/IP. The driver for Windows operating system installs Virtual Com Ports. The network is Gigabit Ethernet or optionally wireless by WLAN 802.11b/g/n, another option is Power over Ethernet. The NetCom+ Servers use a state-of-the art RISC processor for low power and cost effective design. The 4 and 8 port models are very similar, including the case size. Power supply is via DC adapter, or optionally via Ethernet cable with POE IEEE 802.3af. The serial ports enable data rates of up to 1000kbps. The ports allow every non-standard bitrate up to 1Mbps. See the FAQ. The USB 2.0 port supports USB-COM Plus modules, to add more non-isolated and also isolated serial ports. The USB port may also connect external WLAN. NetCom+ can be configured over Driver Panels, WEB Browser, serial Port, Telnet, SNMP and serves as a transparent serial channel without platform and distance limitation. As modern devices the NetCom+ provide encryption for all communication.
