Serial Data Streams to GROUPS of IP Addresses...
SerialStream-UDPMulticast is a software
solution that provides UDP transport of serial data streams to
individual or groups of remote hosts via the UDP protocol.
SerialStream-UDPMulticast can capture any ASCII, HEX, or BINARY serial
data stream on the RS-232 port of a Microsoft Windows PC, and send that
exact data stream to any pre-defined group of IP addresses (or domain
names) simultaneously. This makes SerialStream-UDPMulticast perfect for
numerous applications, including:
- Broadcasting serial devices alarm messages to
network management servers
- Broadcasting serial GPS data streams to
multiple remote GPS survey receivers
- Sending serial GPS data stream to remote server
and local PC UDP port
- Sending serial text message updates to variable
- Sending serial keepalives to multiple network
Install SerialStream-UDPMulticast on the PC or
server. Connect the serial data device (RTU, PLC, etc) using an RS232
Now set SerialStream-UDPMulticast to listen for data on that COM port,
and configure the UDP packet recipients. You can now have the serial
data sent to your local PC IP address, or multiple remote IP addresses
on an user-configurable UDP port.
