Introduction
Chapter 1: Introduction
PES1A and PESV1A Mini PoE (Power over Ethernet) Ethernet to RS232 Converters provide simple and cost-effective solutions for connecting
RS-232 devices to Ethernet networks. PES1A and PESV1A converters make
it easy to connect serial printers, copiers, building automation, retail, point of
sale, warehousing and banking equipment directly into Ethernet networks.
Both models feature Power over Ethernet (PoE) operation and the PESV1A
provides a switch selectable voltage output to power external devices.
PES1A and PESV1A converters support virtual COM port, console
management, TCP and UDP socket, serial bridge, terminal, modem
emulation and custom connections. Network addresses can be obtained
dynamically or manually. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is
supported. Configuration is accomplished through a web-based user
interface.

Communication Modes
PES1A/PESV1A Ethernet to RS-232 converters allow you to connect
serial devices over a LAN or WAN. Serial devices no longer are limited to a
physical connection to the PC COM port. They can be installed anywhere on
the LAN using TCP/IP or UDP/IP communications. This allows traditional
Windows PC software access to serial devices anywhere on the LAN/WAN
network.
Direct IP
Direct IP Mode allows applications using TCP/IP or UDP/IP socket
programs to communicate with the asynchronous serial ports on the serial
server. In this mode the PES1A/PESV1A is configured as a TCP or UDP
server. The socket program running on the PC establishes a communication
connection. The data is sent directly to and from the serial port on the server.
TCP Server Mode allows network devices to initiate a TCP connection to
the serial device connected to the serial port on the PES1A/PESV1A. This is
also referred to as reverse telnet.
UDP Server Mode allows network devices to initiate a UDP connection to
the serial device attached to the serial port of the PES1A/PESV1A. When
using UDP protocol the PES1A/PESV1A can be configured to broadcast data
to and receive data from multiple IP addresses.
Virtual COM Port
Virtual COM Port mode (also called RealPort, or com port redirection)
allows you to map a COM port on your PC to the serial port on your
PES1A/PESV1A. Using the RealPort software (included with the
PES1A/PESV1A) you create virtual COM ports on your PC. When your
application sends data to this port, RealPort redirects the data across the
network to serial device connected to the PES1A/PESV1A serial port. The
network is transparent to the user application and the serial device connected
to the PES1A/PESV1A.

Introduction
Paired Mode
Paired Mode (also called Serial Tunneling or Serial Bridge mode) allows
serial devices connected to two PES1A/PESV1A converters to communicate
across a network. The two PES1A/PESV1A converters automatically
connect to each other.
In Paired Mode the heartbeat feature ensures reliable communications by
restoring the connection if communications are temporarily lost at either end
due to loss of power or Ethernet connection.
Other Communications Modes
PES1A/PESV1A Converters also feature the following communications
profiles:
Terminal Mode allows you to connect a PC running terminal software to the
PES1A/PESV1A serial port and communicate with the PES1A/PESV1A via
a command line interface.
Modem Emulation Mode allows you to configure the serial port to operate
as if it is a modem. For legacy applications where a serial device is set up to
communicate through a modem, the serial device can now be connected to
the PES1A/PESV1A and communication occurs over the network. The
PES1A/PESV1A emulates modem responses to and from the serial device.
In Console Management Mode the PES1A/PESV1A can be configured for
connection to the management port typically found on network devices such
as routers, switches and servers. This allows remote management of the
network device. Communication can be accomplished using telnet to a
specific port in the converter.
Custom Mode allows you to custom configure the PES1A/PESV1A serial
port and is used if your application does not fit into any other predefined
modes.

Hardware Overview
Connecting the Hardware
Typically, the PES1A/PESV1A is connected to a network via a hub, switch
or router using standard CAT-5 cable. Power must be supplied to the
converter via the CAT-5 cable using Power over Ethernet. Configuration is
accomplished over the network, or via a direct connection (see below) using
the Web Configuration and Management Interface
Power over Ethernet (PoE)
Power is supplied to your PES1A/PESV1A from PoE power source
equipment (PSE), which must be installed within 100 meters of the
converter. PSEs may be endspan or midspan devices. Endspan PSE devices
may be switches or hubs with integrated PoE capability. Midspan PSE
devices are dedicated, inline devices that are installed between your network
switch and the PES1A/PESV1A.
For more information on PoE see Appendix C.

Configuring the IP Address
Chapter 4: Configuring the IP Address
Before you can begin the configuration of your PES1A/PESV1A you must
know its IP address to access it with a web browser. Once you have access to
the Configuration and Management Interface via a web browser you can
reset the IP address using static IP addressing, if necessary.
Your PES1A/PESV1A comes from the factory configured to obtain an IP
address dynamically, or failing that, to generate its own IP address using the
APIPA protocol. You can determine the current IP address using the
discovery software included on the CD with your PES1A/PESV1A
Using the Discovery Software
1.
Connect the PES1A/PESV1A to your network (with PoE supply
installed and operating). When it starts it will obtain an IP address.
2.
To determine the initial IP address of your PES1A/PESV1A, start
the finder.exe utility included on the included CD.
Figure 9.
3.
Discovery Utility Dialog
The finder.exe utility scans the network for devices and then lists
each device‟s IP Address, MAC Address, Name and Product ID.
Identify your PES1A/PESV1A by its MAC address (printed on a
label on the PES1A/PESV1A).

Using RealPort
Chapter 8: Using RealPort
RealPort is a COM port redirector program that allows you to add and
remove virtual COM ports on your PC and update the RealPort software.
Virtual COM ports allow you to set up a connection between your PC and
the device connected to the serial port on your PES1A/PESV1A via an
Ethernet network connection using TCP/IP. If you will be using virtual COM
ports (configuring your serial port with the RealPort profile) you must use
RealPort to configure those ports on your PC. Once you have configured a
new virtual COM (VCOM) port using RealPort, application software can
communicate through that COM port as if it is located within the PC.
There are three steps to setting up a virtual COM port with RealPort.
1.
Configure the PES1A/PESV1A with an IP address
2.
Configure the PES1A/PESV1A serial port for RealPort (VCOM)
mode
3.
Configure the port itself using RealPort
Configuring the IP Address
See Chapter 3, Configuring the IP Address
Configuring the Serial Port for RealPort
1.
Login to the Web Configuration and Management Interface.
2.
Select Configuration, Serial Port.
3.
On the Serial Port Configuration page, check the Profile for the
port. If it is not RealPort, click Port 1.
4.
On the page that appears click Change Profile.
5.
On the Select Port Profile page, select RealPort, then click Apply.

Appendix F: Power over Ethernet (PoE)
Power over Ethernet is a technique (defined by the IEEE802.3af standard) for
providing power to Ethernet enabled devices over standard Category 5e
cabling. Two techniques (Alternative A and Alternative B) are defined by the
standard and supported by the PES1A/PESV1A.
Alternative A implements a simplex, or „phantom feeding‟ method for
delivering power to the end device. Power is carried on the same conductors
as data. Cabling for standard 10BaseT and 100BaseTX Ethernet (typically
Category 5 cable with RJ-45 connectors) uses two data/signal pairs. The
power sourcing equipment (PSE) applies positive DC voltage (simplexed) to
pins 3 and 6. Negative voltage is applied to pins 1 and 2. The powered device
(PD) derives the power from these lines.
Alternative B carries power over spare wire pairs in the cable. The power
sourcing equipment applies positive voltage to pins 4 and 5. Negative voltage
is applied to pins 7 and 8.
Operating voltage is typically 48 volts but may vary from 44 volts to 57
volts.
