RS232 to Ethernet BlueBOLT Adaptor

BB-RS232 Description

The BB-RS232 Adaptor provides Ethernet connectivity to BlueBOLT-supported products that are otherwise only capable of RS-232 communication. Once the adaptor is connected between the BlueBOLT supported product (via RS-232) and the site’s Local Area Network (via Ethernet), the product can communicate with our BlueBOLT servers.

BlueBOLT allows you to:

  • Control individual outlets or outlet banks
  • Monitor your devices and power status
  • Receive email alerts for power events
  • Schedule tasks such as power on, off, cycling, and sequencing
  • Manage multiple devices in your chain of devices
  • Utilize device-specific features for your compatible product
