The ConnectPoint Serial is an end point in the HaLow network. It is a HaLow and RS / EIA / TIA-485 bridge, automatically passing data between the two networks. It communicates with a ConnectPoint AP to act as a cable replacement between the two devices.
Any data presented on the RS-485 port is passed to the ConnectPoint AP over Wi-Fi HaLow and vice versa. The ConnectPoint Serial does not decode, decrypt or interpret the data, so it can be used with any protocol based on the 485 physical connection. This includes Modbus 485, BACnet, PROFIBUS and others.
The 485 port is a 4-pin female M8 connector. Housed in an IP66 extruded aluminum enclosure, the ConnectPoint Ethernet is ruggedized for harsh industrial environments. Combined with the extrodinary range and throughput of Wi-Fi HaLow, this makes the ConnectPoint Serial ideal for wirelessly connecting drives, controllers and PLCs in industrial communications networks.
