The Serial-to-Ethernet (S2E) bridge is a ready-to-use protocol converter that is intended for extending the communications reach of an existing device with a serial interface (RS232/RS485) over an ethernet network. (intranet, internet)
The original configuration consists of a device that has a serial interface (RS232/RS485) and PC that runs a OEM specific application that communicates with the OEM device over the serial interface, possibly using a customer specific protocol.

Example configurations for remote access with S2E bridge

Figure 3: Remote access over ethernet (internet - WAN)
With the S2E bridge data is ‘bridged’ transparently between the PC and the OEM device, ethernet (TCP/IP) is used as a transport channel to get the data to/from the device.
All software is pre-installed on flash disk of the NCS0401.
