NetBurner today unveiled the all-new SB700EX, a device that quickly adds SSH/SSL secure network connectivity to serial devices. The SB700EX solution targets applications that control, configure or log information to or from serial devices accessible on a local network or the Internet. The SB700EX ships with a serial-to-Ethernet standard application, or you can create custom applications with the development kit.
The SB700EX brings simple and secure Ethernet and Internet connectivity to new or existing serial applications using SSH, SSL, DHCP, TCP and UDP protocols. It is ready to run out of the box with no programming required. The initial setup, configuration, and diagnostic programs can be accessed via web page interface or with the included network utilities.
By using two NetBurner serial-to-Ethernet devices with each other, a TCP "serial tunnel" can be created that enables two serial devices to communicate over an IP network. The IP connection between the two devices will be transparent to the serial devices. If the serial device typically connects to an application on a Windows PC, then the NetBurner-provided serial to Ethernet virtual COM port software can be used.
Providing the latest in high-performance connectivity options, the NetBurner SB700EX board includes 10/100 Ethernet, two UARTs with support for RS-232 and RS-422/485 serial devices, and a microSD interface. FAT32 support is included for use with microSD cards for up to 8GB of storage space.
The SB700EX can be customized to suit any application by using a network development kit that can provide access to web page customization, data filtering, real-time clock, NTP, and the microSD flash card interface. The kit contains all the hardware, software, and tools needed to start writing application code immediately including: RTOS, TCP/IP stack, web server, Eclipse IDE, C/C++ compiler and debugger.
The SB700EX one thousand piece price is set at $129 USD and NNDK-SB700EX-KIT costs $299 USD. Both can be purchased through the NetBurner online store at http://www.netburner.com.
