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.
What makes Edgar unique?
- Dual power – it can be powered from PoE 802.3af or an external power supply (11 – 58 V DC).
- Power output – Edgar can power an external device using its VOUT terminal. It means PoE can be used both for the converter and other device as well. The Voltage Output can be 5, 9, 12 or 24 V. It is possible to switch it on or off via a web browser.
- HTTP GET communication allowing an easy access to the serial port from a WEB server.
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).
