The LIN-501C Serial-to-Ethernet Module provides a standard network
TCP/IP connection for Linears AM3Plus, AE1000Plus, and AE2000Plus
access controllers. The module can be used as an alternative to a
traditional telephone modem typically used for remote access to Plus
The LIN-501C module connects between the Plus panels RS-232 Serial
port and the installations network. Access to the network can be
through a Local Area Network (LAN) or directly to a Wide Area Network
(WAN). Typically the module is connected to a port on a router located
on the installations LAN.
In Plus panel networks, with multiple panels interconnected via
RS-485 wiring, the LN-501C module connects to Node #1 of an AXNET
network, or Node #1 of any AB2000 network.
For easy configuration and setup, a Windows based software utility
is included on the installation CD. The utility software is used for
setting the LIN-501C modules IP address and the computers virtual COM
port. The utility software is compatible with Windows XP, Windows
Vista, and Windows 7.
Note: LIN-501C Module is only available in the AM-SEK Kit and is not sold separately.
