The WRA-232 Bridge has two parallel bi-directional data connections, RS232 and Ethernet. Messages received on either are repeated to both Rako's wired and wireless network. Similarly, Rako network transmissions (both wired and wireless) are re-transmitted on both the RS232 and Ethernet ports.
Custom Strings The WRA-232 Bridge has the facility to output custom strings on receipt of a 'trigger' message from a Rako network command. This allows Rako transmission devices to act as controllers for external devices which allow RS232 or IP control.
RS232 Interfacing The WRA-232 Bridge offers bi-directional RS232 interfacing supporting an ASCII command set documented in Rako's 'RS232 Command Summary' sheet. Standard communication rate of 9600Baud is configurable via the embedded webpage to support 1200Bd, 2400Bd, 19.2kBd, 57.6kBd and 115.2kBd. Data input via 9 Way 'D' socket.
IP control IP control is available using either TCP (Telnet), HTTP or UDP. More information on the command format is available in the Rako document 'Accessing the Rako Bridge'.
