The ESC-2 Ethernet to Serial Converter provides a convenient way to add two
RS-232 ports to an RTI XP series control processor. Wire the ESC-2 to the local Ethernet network with standard cat-5 cable and it will offer full two-way control, as if the device was wired directly to the control processor. Two built-in RJ-45 jacks and the included RJ-45 to DB9 adapters allow efficient cat5 cabling between the ESC-2 and the device being controlled.* This allows full RS-232 control virtually anywhere there is access to an Ethernet network connection.
*NOTE: Cabling from the ESC-2 to the device being controlled is limited to 30-70 feet depending on baud rate and other factors.
