Nautilus Infotech Solutions
The most of CNC machines need to use the RS-232 serial interface to connect to the controller. Some environments will use the serial to USB or serial to Ethernet converters. If using the serial to USB converter, it will need to set up a controller near the CNC machine and to occupy the space. And it likewise bears the USB cable length limitation. If using the serial to Ethernet converter, the factory must deploy the Ethernet cable in advance. And it also needs to consider the Ethernet cable length.

Nautilus Infotech provides a serial to wireless converter which can solve the fixed line’s connectivity issue and distance limitation. This converter, can support standardized IEEE802.11 b/g/n wireless interface to connect with most popular WiFi access points. There is an RP-SMA connector with 2dBi antenna. This is also a standard connector for customer to install different type antennas.

Nautilus Infotech designs a serial combo port which supports RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 by software selection. The RS-232 interface with standard DB9 connector can setup the connection between CNC machine and converter to become quickly and easily. To meet the industrial environment, the converter supports the operating temperature from -10~65 degree C, high surge protection and built in 15KV ESD protection in serial interfaces. The converter can provide a high reliability connection.

Nautilus Infotech’s serial to WiFi converter is built into the web-based GUI configuration. Such user friendly configuration can configure the device conveniently. Not only this, but also has password to have high security protection.
