The ConnectPoint Station HaLow industrial Ethernet and RS-485 bridge is an end point in the HaLow network. It bridges a HaLow network with RS-485 and Ethernet networks, 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 sent to the ConnectPoint AP over Wi-Fi HaLow and output on its RS-485 port. Likewise, any data on the Ethernet port is output on the Ethernet port on the other side. It is also possible to configure the ConnectPoint devices to send data from Ethernet on one side to RS-485 on the other side, 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 RS-485 or Ethernet physical connection. This includes Modbus 485, Modbus TCP, BACnet, PROFINET, PROFIBUS and others. The ConnectPoint Station is plug-and-play for most applications, making installation extremely simple.
The 485 port is a 4-pin female M8 connector. The Ethernet port is a waterproof RJ-45 jack for standard CAT-5 or CAT-6 cables. Housed in an IP66 extruded aluminum enclosure, the ConnectPoint Station is ruggedized for harsh industrial and outdoor environments. Combined with the extraordinary range and throughput of Wi-Fi HaLow, this makes the ConnectPoint Station HaLow industrial Ethernet and RS-485 bridge ideal for wirelessly connecting drives, controllers, and PLCs in industrial communications networks.
