Handling serial data streams is our bread and butter. In a majority of cases, NetBurner’s serial device platforms are ready for your Serial-to-Ethernet applications right out-of-the-box; however, in applications that require precision serial data timing, additional processing may be needed. In this article, we’ll show you an implementation of callback functions to handle these scenarios.

NetBurner SB800 EX Serial-to-Ethernet Device with Secure Wifi

At NetBurner, we make networking easy. That’s why we're proud to introduce our newest Serial to Ethernet Server, the amazingly powerful, versatile and portable SB800 EX. This model converts your tried and true serial interface devices into modern ethernet-enabled technology.

SB800 EX Serial to Ethernet with Secure Wifi

Each NetBurner SB800EX allows you to securely and remotely access up to two serial devices as if they were plugged directly into your own computer, with no programming or development required. Optional integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wifi offers even greater flexibility for remote applications and cable-free installations. The SB800EX is extremely secure, featuring SSL/TLS, HTTPS and SSH security, so you don't need to worry about the safety of your data or controls.

Since the hardware is pre-programmed to convert your serial data to Ethernet, you can use it right out of the box. However, if you're looking to create custom applications, then look no further than the NetBurner Network Development Kit (NNDKs found on the SB800 EX product page). You can customize any aspect of operation including web pages, data filtering, data logging or custom network applications. This new product will allow users to take a leap when creating bespoke secure wireless networking projects with critical serial interface assets.

Highlights of the SB800 EX Serial to Ethernet device include:

  • 2 Serial Ports jumperless configuration
  • RS-232, RS-455 and RS-485 baud rates up to 921,600 bps
  • 10/100Mbps Ethernet
  • TCP/UDP/Telnet and DHCP/Static IP modes
  • Flash card interface for data logging (with required NNDK)
  • Real-Time Clock
  • Custom packetization of serial data
  • The ability to create a serial tunnel with two devices
  • Operating Temperature: -40° to 85° C
  • And more….

This new product allows current NetBurner SB72EX and SB700EX users to easily upgrade and also offers the opportunity to rebrand with your custom product label. For more information, including a full list of features, options, configurations and associated kits, check out the SB800 EX product page or get in touch with additional questions or for support.

When the legacy application sends data to a serial COM port, it is actually transmitted over a TCP/IP network and back from the network to your legacy application.
