Serial to Ethernet

Serial devices can be found in both commercial and industrial environments. While the number of serial ports in devices have been decreasing many devices today are still serial based. Even in the PC market finding a computer with a serial port comes with great difficulty. Serial connectivity is based on legacy technology and has many limitations. For example, using RS-232 the maximum distance is 50 feet /15 meters. Serial cabling is also more expensive to implement if there is no existing wiring.
