The Hive-Node-RS232 is a unique and robust addition to our acclaimed Hive Node Kits lineup. Just as capable as the Hive Node Relay and IR, this kit is meticulously engineered to control an array of devices, including displays, projectors, switchers, and DSPs, making it an incredibly versatile tool for advanced AV control.

A key feature of this kit is the PoE-powered Hive-Node-Mini, which connects with ease to the RS232 adapter via a 3.5mm cable. The Hive-Node-RS232 harnesses the power of serial communication, supporting RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485, with both full duplex and half duplex capabilities.

Ease of installation and configuration is a prime feature of the Hive-Node-RS232, thanks to configurable null modem settings, baud rate, and other serial parameters that can be set via the device's web page or API. The need for a null modem cable is eliminated due to the kit's innovative design. Furthermore, its compact form factor ensures easy concealment, making it a discreet yet potent addition to any control setup.

The Hive-Node-RS232 works natively as a control end point for the Hive Touch control panel and Hive KP8 control keypad, enhancing your control system's capabilities. When teamed with the Hive-Node-Relay and/or Hive-Node-IR, it forms a comprehensive control solution delivering optimal performance across a multitude of applications.

In addition, the Hive-Node-RS232 provides a dedicated TCP IP port for easy read and write serial communication, promising a streamlined, efficient solution for automation and control applications. It stands as a versatile and scalable solution, catering to the unique needs of your project, reflecting our unwavering commitment to user-friendly, innovative, and efficient solutions.
