Free Serial-TCP (More than just a Device Server)

 Serial-TCP (More than just a device server)

In the past two decades, legacy serial communication protocols such as Modbus have merged rapidly with modern TCP/IP communication, yielding benefits including widely available infrastructures and greater distance, reliability, and speed. The Serial-TCP program (more than just a Device Server) bridges your existing Serial COM port and TCP/IP without the need for changing existing protocol. It works seamlessly and transparently, just like passive RS232 / RS485 / RS422 converters, repeaters, and hubs, while the difference is that one requires installation of cables and converters with limited distance; and the other simply makes use of the existing computers and networks with an unlimited transmission distance

The applications of the Serial-TCP program include acting as a Device Server and/or Modbus RTU/ASCII to Modbus TCP Protocol Converter; extending serial (RS232, RS485, RS422, and TTL, etc.) communication distance via TCP/IP; replacing existing COM and TCP hardware devices; expanding the capability of your existing TCP/IP control software; and analyzing TCP/IP and COM network with the built-in IIoT "Packet Sender",  "Ping", "Resolve IP Address / Host Name", "COM Port State LEDs", "Debugging" and "Checksum Calculator" tools. The Serial-TCP program is also very helpful when you are developing your own IIoT cloud and edge products and solutions. The Serial-TCP (more than just a Device Server) supports all major Windows OS, including Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, and XP, both 32 and 64 bits. The FREE non-commercial version has no functionality limitation or expiry date, so feel free to use or distribute it.
