UT-4301
Product Summary & Benefits:
RS-232/422/485 to 10/100 Base-TX
Featuring a standard 9-pin serial port and RJ-45 type 10/100
Mbps Ethernet port, the UT-4301 media converter becomes
a perfect solution when integrating an asynchronous device
to a TCP/IP based Ethernet network. Other benefits include
auto-detecting 10/100 Mbps interface. By deploying the UT4301, users can retain investments made in legacy serial
devices.
Converter
Introduction:
Designed to enable serial devices such as CNCs
and PLCs to connect to an Ethernet network, the UT4301 media converter represents a robust
conncetivity solution. The converter features
complete Ethernet and TCP/IP network support that
allows devices in industry with RS-232/422/485
connectors such as milling machines, measurement
instruments, and robots to connect to LAN based
automation. Other devices typically found on campus
networks such as card readers, code readers, lab
equipment, medical equipment, and other similar
serial devices can now instantly migrate to a TCP//IP
network.

NOTE: Above models available with internal AC/DC
power supply options (used with the UT-3001
Mini Converter Chassis)
Flexibility - The UT-4301 serial interface facilitates
integration of asynchronous devices anywhere within an
existing Ethernet network environment without requiring
removal, replacement or modification of the current serial
cable infrastructure.
DIP Switches - Simply use the rear panel DIP switches to
activate several connectivity modes, such as a terminating
resistor or console mode and the UT-4301 quickly
incorporates the serial device into the existing Ethernet
network.
Cost-effective - By simplifying the integration of the existing
asynchronous serial devices such as CNCs and PLCs within
an Ethernet network, the UT-4301 represents a cost-effective
solution for network administrators eager to keep device
replacement costs to a minimum.
Easy Implementation - The design of the UT-4301 allows
for straightforward "plug-and-go" operation. Additionally, the
compact form factor of the device translates into installation
flexibility; suitable as a standalone (desktop, wall-mount) or
as a module within a 19" mount-rack system by using the UT3012 12-slot, UT-3004 4-slot, or the UT-3001 single-slot
