The I-7188EX, Embedded Internet/Ethernet Controller, focuses in Embedded Control applications while the I-7188EN, Internet Communication Controller, focuses in communication applications. According to different embedded firmware and application program, the Internet Communication Controller can be used as Device Server or Addressable Ethernet to RS-232/485/422 Converter or Embedded Internet/Ethernet Controller. The user should refer to comparison table to choose optimal product. Now we offer wide range Internet Communication Controllers, such as I-7188E1 / E2 /E3 /E4 / E5 / E8. Except the RTC circuitry, the basic hardware of I-7188EN is similar to I-7188EX. Since there are too many configurations for I-7188EN series product, OEM or ODM version is welcomed. Can be used as Addressable Ethernet to RS-232/485/422 Converter.
Most RS-232/485/422 devices don't support device address. The I-7188EN series can assign a unique address to any RS-232 device installed in the Ethernet network. Host-PC can send command with device address to Ethernet network, the destination I-7188EN will remove the address field & pass the other fields of command to its local RS-232 device. The response of this local RS-232 device will be passed to host-PC via this destination I-7188EN.
The i-7188EN series can be used as Ethernet to RS-232/485/422 Device Server. The Device Server is an appliance that network enables any device with a serial communication port. By virtue of its independent operating system, protocol independence, small size and flexibility, Device servers are able to meet the demand of virtually any network-enable application. Most devices don't have network ports. Our Internet Communication Controllers allow those devices to become connected to the network.
The hardware and software of i-7188EN is similar to i-7188EX, the i-7188EN also can be used as Embedded Internet/Ethernet Controller except the RTC (Real Time Clock). The user can use well-developed libraries and demo programs to implement an Embedded Internet/Ethernet Controller.
