I haven't used this particular model. I have used similar units from
Systech, purchased on eBay for less than $30 US. They work quite well.
Some of them have selectable RS-232/RS-485 outputs. I've successfully
used both types of outputs.
The only problem I've had was the initial configuration. The trick is
to configure the serial ports as a "Reverse Telnet" server.
Search eBay for "terminal server". You can also search the Time Nuts
list, they were discussed a few years ago.
