Serial Ethernet Converter (RS232, 485, 422)

  • Model: XS1000


Sold Out


Notice: this part has been discontinued and replaced by part XS1200 which has a better processor and design.

The XetaServer XS1000 is a cost effective industrial grade standard serial RS232 to Ethernet converter with RS485 and RS422 capabilities. With this converter you can connect a serial RS232, RS485 or RS422 device to your computer over a standard Ethernet/LAN network.

Embedding a 8051 CPU and 32Kb SRAM with a 10/100Mbps Ethernet port and serial COM support with handshake control this serial to Ethernet converter is the choice for connecting both legacy and current serial devices.

The included Virtual COM software creates an additional COM port which will show up in Windows Device Manager and can be used as if it was a standard built-in COM port.

The XS1000 Serial RS232 to Ethernet converter can be managed through a web-browser or the included management software.
Multiple COM port and network settings can be configured, see this overview of configurable parameters.
Supported protocols are: TCP/IP, UDP/IP, ARP, ICMP, DHCP and HTTP.

This serial RS232 to Ethernet converter is ideal for connecting RS232 / RS422 / RS485 devices like CNC's, PLC's, scales, scanners and other industrial and commercial devices directly to a 10/100Mbps Ethernet network running TCP/IP either over a local LAN network or over the Internet via a VPN.

Quick Tip!

Setting up a serial RS232 to Ethernet converter.

Using and setting up a RS232 to Ethernet converter is fairly easy, however it is an advantage to be familiar with computers and network settings. To setup the converter the first thing you need to do is to assign a static IP address for your computer. This is needed for the converter to be able to connect to your computer.

After you have assigned a static COM port for your computer you need to install the included virtual COM port software. This software creates a virtual COM port in your computer which the XS1000 can use. This virtual COM port can be found in your computers Device Manager. The virtual COM port software is usually available for all versions of Windows, Linux and in some cases Mac.

After you have installed the virtual COM software for the RS232 to Ethernet converter you connect it to your computer with a standard Ethernet cable, it can be either a cross-over or straight-through cable. Then you connect the power supply. To check if you have connected the converter correctly you can now enter the IP address of the RS232 to Ethernet converter in your browsers address bar and press Enter. This should now take you to the converters Admin page. If you dont see this page something has gone wrong while setting up and connecting the RS232 to Ethernet converter.

The virtual COM software is now ready to search for the XS1000. Simply click the Search button and the software will search for the RS232 to Ethernet converter. Once the software finds the converter, it usually only takes a few seconds, you can create the virtual COM port by clicking the Create COM port button. If the COM port has been successfully created you should now be able to go to your computers Device Manager and find the virtually created COM port. If you cant see the port in Device Manager then usually it has not been created successfully, and you need to check your setup.

Most RS232 to Ethernet converters basically works the same way, creating a virtual COM port by software, however you can also use the converter without virtual COM port software. If you wish to use it without virtual COM software your particular software needs to be able to specify the IP address of the RS232 to Ethernet converter whereby you then can send data to the converter and it will then convert all in and out coming data.
