ABSTRACT
Using an Ethernet LAN to interconnect sensors, instruments, machine tools, medical monitors, restaurant appliances, POS terminals and other devices. In the mid-1990s, Comtrol Corporation created the first "device server," which converts serial transmission to Ethernet, enabling serial-based devices to communicate over a LAN instead of dedicated cabling. Although newer devices have Ethernet ports, legacy devices have serial ports. In the industrial world, some machine tools have lifespans of 20 years or more.
