The RS232EXTC1EU Serial over Cat 5 Extender allows you to increase the distance of your RS232 Serial connection by up to 1000 meters (3300 feet), giving you the ability to connect serial peripheral devices up to a kilometer away from your system - an incredible 65x greater than normal RS232 serial cable length restrictions would permit.
The Serial Extender is a cost-effective serial extension solution and entirely hardware-based, eliminating the need to install additional software, allowing for a completely plug and play installation. The hardware can be setup in minutes, using existing or new Cat 5 or better Ethernet cabling.
Perfect for use in industrial monitoring and control, POS, security, medical, and traffic flow applications, the RS232 Serial over Cat 5 extender maintains the RS232 standard with support for data transfer rates of up to 230 Kbps.
Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
