Extend serial connections across any distance, including the Internet; or access and control serial ports across a network as simply as if they were inside the PC beside you. By assigning TCP port and IP addresses to serial ports, Ether-Serial Links make it possible for a single PC to control many serial devices, or for many PCs to control a single serial device.
The software behind Lava Ether-Serial Links makes installation effortless. Lava Ether Link Manager makes the serial ports appear as native COM ports, which enables windows to 'see' those ports as internal ones, regardless of whether they are 10 meters or 10,000 kilometers away. This makes it possible to find, connect, and configure LAVA Ether-Serial Links anywhere on a network segment in minutes.
When the IP address of an Ether-Serial Link's remote port changes, the device does not lose connection with the client PC. Lava's sophisticated port binding technology can also associate a remote serial port with a MAC address or a user-specified name. Reliable connections are maintained between client stations and the Lava Ether-Serial Link's remote ports, eliminating the need to manually update IP addresses for remote devices, wherever they may be.
Lava Ether-Serial Links are perfect serial device servers for point-of-sale, factory automation, data collection, building automation, security, health care, and logistics connectivity. Anywhere a remote serial port is needed, a Lava Ether-Serial Link can fit the bill.
