British Antarctic Survey Choose EasySYNC's Serial-to-Ethernet Technology
EasySYNC’s range of serial connectivity products are designed to be able to cope with even the most demanding of application environments, both in terms of exposure to mechanical stress and extreme temperatures.
The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) has been using EasySYNC’s serial-to-Ethernet technology in order to make use of legacy cabling infrastructure. EasySYNC RS232 to Ethernet conversion boxes are placed inside the buildings of the BAS stations in Antarctica so that the team can avoid having to run any new cables though walls and can utilise the existing networking cables that were previously installed. As Steve Colwell, Operational Meteorologist, British Antarctic Survey explains, “We chose EasySYNC’s products as they were the only ones we could find at the time that seemed able to do the job. They have proved reliable, so we have continued to specify them as a result.”

Technical Note on USB-to-CAN & RS232-to-CAN Products
With EasySYNC’s launch of replacements for its existing CANUSB and CAN232 products – the USB2-F-7001 (USB-to-CAN) and the S1-A-7001 (RS232-to-CAN) adapters, improve on the previous feature set, add advanced commands and increase performance levels.
These new CAN Plus adapters add 5 new commands, provide full 29 -bit filtering and handle concurrent CAN commands. In addition, they both come in improved industrial strength mechanical enclosures.
The S1-A-7001 operates up to 1Mbit/s on the RS232 interface and the USB2-F-7001 comes with an advanced DLL to enable development of application software.
This technical note outlines the advanced features of the USB2-F-7001 and S1-A-7001. Information is also provided to ensure a smooth transition from the previous generation of EasySYNC CANUSB and CAN232 products to the newer more powerful products.
