View Full Version : Easy Serial to Ethernet module

- 26th July 2011, 17:54
Hello Guys

i need your help is deciding which Serial to Ethernet module that is quite easy to use as there are quite a few out there when i do a search on both this forum and the internet.
This is basically what i intend to do.............
I have a Data Logger that store Temperature measurements date stamp etc to a serial eeprom.
i then go to download this data once in every 3 months with a laptop so i and now thinking that if it might be possible to connect the logger to the internet
via a Serial to Ethernet module so that i can download this data remotely .
Would like to hear from anyone who has done anything similar in the past

Best Regards

IMO, ConnectOne's serial <=> ethernet modules are the easiest to use. There's no real low level 'programming' - you merely send AT commands similar to PC-to-modem communication. mackrackit has published example code (http://mackrackit.com/mac/ichip/ichip.html).

Thank you very much for the link
it seems to be quite hard to get hold off in the uk but i have sent emails to both distribution listed for the uk
just keeping my finger grossed at the moment.
Have anyone else used anything similar ? from the data sheet it seems really easy to use would be a shame
if we cant get it in the uk

One other plus for Connect One - their serial<->WiFi modules have WPA/WPA2 security and SSL encryption.
