NAPERVILLE, Ill. – (August 26, 2014) – Grid Connect (gridconnect.com), a manufacturer and distributor of embedded networking products, has introduced the NET232+, the next generation of serial device servers. The NET232+ helps extend the life and utility of existing RS-232 serial devices by providing a simple solution to enable them to connect to the network via Ethernet and TCP/IP

The NET232+ is a full-featured device server that delivers serial data rates up to 921kbps and auto-sensing 10/100Mbps Ethernet. This product supports up to four TCP connections (or a mixture of TCP and UDP). It also supports DNS, email serial triggers, email authentication, and 256-bit AES encryption at no additional charge. A debug trace feature helps troubleshoot the serial connection.

The NET232+ features an industrial grade temperature range, a factory reset push button, detailed LED status indicators, and an updated configuration web page.

The product is simple to configure using free installation software. Just connect the NET232+ to a serial device and to the local Ethernet network and run the software to find and set up the NET232+. It can be used in pairs to tunnel serial data between them over the Internet, or stand-alone connected to a serial device on RS-232 and to a host computer on Ethernet. The host computer can open a direct TCP connection or use the virtual COM port software.

The NET232+ is backward compatible with Grid Connect’s previous generation NET232 product.

Additional product information and online ordering are available at http://gridconnect.com/rs232-rj45.html.

NAPERVILLE, IL--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2014) - Grid Connect (gridconnect.com), a manufacturer and distributor of embedded networking products, entered the rapidly-growing Internet of Things (IoT) industry with the launch of ConnectSense (connectsense.com), a line of wireless sensors to automate home and business. ConnectSense sensors will be showcased at Sensors Expo, Booth 517, June 24-26, in Rosemont, Ill.

ConnectSense is a platform of low-cost, cloud-based Wi-Fi 802.11b/g wireless sensors that monitor changes in the user's environment and then sends notifications via phone call, email, text or Tweet. Sensors are available to monitor temperature, humidity, water, motion, security and light.

ConnectSense devices transmit alerts using Wi-Fi, the ubiquitous wireless technology found in business offices and homes. ConnectSense allows users to leverage their existing Wi-Fi network without the need to purchase any additional hardware or gateways. Users set alert scenarios using ConnectSense.com, a cloud-based interface that can be accessed via a PC, Mac, tablet, phone, or any other device with a web browser.

Unlike other monitoring systems that require expensive installations and recurring monthly monitoring fees, ConnectSense is a Do It Yourself (DIY) system that does not require monitoring fees.

Sensors are portable and can be battery or wall powered, allowing them to be used in places without traditional electrical outlets, such as boats and greenhouses.

Grid Connect has an exclusive retail relationship with amazon.com for ConnectSense sensors. They also are available at shop.connectsense.com.

ConnectSense is a new member of IPSO Alliance, a global collaborative forum of leading IoT companies, and the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), a new organization to further development, adoption and wide-spread use of interconnected machines, intelligent analytics and people.
