LAN⇔RS-232C Conversion


Supports 10Base-T/100 Base-TX, Built-in Xport®
* Environment-friendly design

SI-60F is an interface converter to connect factory automation equipment and analyzers, which only have the RS-232C serial communication port, to LAN. The built-in Lantronix Xport® on the LAN interface converts RS-232C data into LAN protocol (TCP/IP). It is the environment-friendly design, such as low power consumption from DC5V and compact body (resource saving).

SI-60F : Japanese model ( 100V Input AC adapter )
SI-60F-E : World wide model ( Wide Input AC adapter )

Pin Name I/O Direction*1 Description
1 - - non-connected
2 RD In Reception Data
3 SD Out Transmission Data
4 ER In Data terminal ready
5 GND - Signal Grand
6 DR In Data set ready
7 RS Out Transmission Request
8 CS In  Transmission Permit

*1: “Out” means a direction to output signals from the converter.
“In” means a direction to input signals to the converter.

Example of SI-60F Connection

Attached software (COM port Redirector™) controls the RS-232C device as if it is connecting directly to the serial port (COM1 to n) of PC. This reduces the modification of communication programs. Also, you can transmit/receive RS-232C serial data directly using the TCP/IP socket communication method.

Locate RS-232C devices to further place using LAN cable

2sets of SI-60F makes it possible to locate the RS-232C devices in the far place using LAN cable. One set of SI-60F has to be in Server mode (or Server and Client mode) and the other one has to be in Client mode (or Server and Client) mode.


Connection with LINEEYE analyzer 

By connecting the LINEEYE analyzers to LAN (Ethernet) using SI-60F, you can analyze the data on a PC in the office far from the workplace in real time, continuously measuring the data between the device A and B.

<DIN Rail Installation
< Optional “Metal
Fitting for Wall” >

Able to install the device on the 35mm DIN rail using Optional DIN plate (SI-DIN70), and to install it on the wall using the optional wall bracket (SI-WM1).

2 kinds of power input

Able to supply the power from attached AC adapter or external power supply (DC5 to 25V).

A Useful Tool for Multiple Operation
<Configuration tool (SILANIOinit)>

“SILANIOinit" is a configuration tool for LINEEYE products embedded WiPort-NR. It is useful and saves time to rewrite the WiPort-NR configuration file (Setup Record) .
