Sainsmart NCS1 Ethernet to Serial Converter

The SainSmart NCS1 intelligent communications converter provides ethernet to serial RS232/RS485 based communications.  This unit is extremely affordable, is powered via a local 9-24vdc supply (recommended 12vdc).  Other solutions cost upto 4 times more.  This is by far the cheapest way to integrate serial ports into Control4.

This driver will only work on Control4 OS 2.6 and above.


  • IP to RS232/RS485 Serial Output
  • Two way feedback
  • Extremely Affordable


  • RS232 serial cable runs at a maximum distance of 15 meters.  With this you can now extend that to 100 meters on a single run.

  • Connect remote devices like lighting systems, security systems, projectors, Solar inverters and more.
