Ethernet Interface for NCD Devices
Introducing the NCD5500 Ethernet to Serial Converter. Our 3rd Generation Converter setting new standards for reliability, low-cost, and ease of use. Connect the complete line of NCD Industrial Devices to your Ethernet Network using this modular communications module from NCD. Based on the our next generation Ethernet to Serial Converter, the NCD5500 was customized specifically for use with NCD devices to ensure optimal compatibility with our complete line of products. This Ethernet communications module essentially converts TCP/IP data into serial data bytes, and sends these bytes to the complete line of NCD devices via Serial Communications. This Ethernet communications module is suitable for use with endNode, ProXR*, ProXR Lite*, Fusion, Reactor*, and Taralist* series controllers as well as a broad range of IoT connected devices. This Ethernet to Serial Communication Module is also Compatible with Alpha Station and Base Station, Making it Easy to Discover the IP Address.

Ethernet to Serial Communications Module
This Ethernet to Serial Communications Module converts TCP packets to Serial data and vise versa. This device can be configured to automatically close the socket after a programmable timeout or to leave the socket open. A blue LED light indicates an open socket connection. Program the Baud Rate of this Device from 9600 to 115.2K Baud and communicate to this device over the default TCP port 2101. This device also supports Static IP Addresses, DHCP, and has the ability to recover back to factory default settings with a simple press of a button.
3rd Generation Hardware Now Shipping
This is our 3rd generation hardware for Ethernet to Serial communications, representing giant steps forward in reliability, easy of use, recover-ability, and LOW COST. Yes, we are actually LOWERING the price of this device as our costs have shrunk considerably from previous generation Ethernet to Serial conversion technologies. Other significant improvements include new recovery options. Not only is a web UI supported (as in previous generations), but also a new Windows application may be used to change settings and recover modules with an unknown IP address. New firmware upgrade options are now available, allowing users to upgrade firmware as new features are released.
Custom Web Page Upload
The latest version of the NCD5500 Control Panel (v220.127.116.11) now supports the ability to upload a single customizable web page. As you might expect, it’s important to keep the size of the page small as this is an embedded device, but you can now customize the page to your needs. We have included sample pages for some of our relay controllers in the download links below.
