AUTOMATION 

Enable simple device networking with iPocket232 Inc. serial to Ethernet adapters for intelligent buildings without costly upgrades to HVAC, security or access control equipment. The ability to retrofit existing RS232 based systems provides valuable flexibility in implementing a building automation strategy. Real-time data access can streamline processes and optimize resource allocation.

Solutions

iPocket232 Inc.’s device networking products are used in over 200 applications in more than 85 countries around the world. Device networking products feature one or more legacy interfaces (RS232), with one or more Ethernet ports (LAN/WAN).

Device networking products address common legacy communications challenges such as:

  • Reducing cabling requirements
  • Accessing data from remote legacy devices
  • Facilitating communications between an IP device and a legacy application
  • Accessing a networked device remotely without compromising network security
  • Low cost wireless access to Ethernet devices

Applications

Access Control/Security
Connect legacy security/access control equipment to an enterprise LAN/WAN without regard to distance. By networking security equipment like CCTV cameras and badge readers, stand-alone systems can be monitored, controlled and accessed in real-time from a central location, optimizing resources and improving response time. In addition, some iPocket232 Inc. products deliver data security features such as SSL encryption and firewalling, protecting sensitive data on the network.
