The WIZ110SR is a gateway module that converts RS-232 protocol into TCP/IP. It enables remote gauging, managing and control of TCP/IP devices through an RS-232 serial interface. In other words, WIZ110SR is a protocol converter that transmits the data sent by serial equipment as TCP/IP data type and converts back the TCP/IP data received through the network into serial data to transmit back to the equipment.
The main components of the WIZ110SR are a WIZnet W5100 embedded ethernet controller chip and an 8051 complaint MCU. Also included on the board are DB9 and RJ45 connectors and a 5.5x2.1mm barrel jack. To power the board, a 5V power adapter is required.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

Received it, took 2 minutes to configure the WIZ, then 2 minutes to configure XTension for a new CM11 via TCP. It just disappeared into the mesh… Just works.
Product seems to work well Links should point to: old.wiznet.co.kr/Sub_Modules/en/product/Product_Detail.asp?cate1=&cate2=&cate3=&pid=1040 and old.wiznet.co.kr/UpLoad_Files/ReferenceFiles/WIZ110SR_User_Manual_V1.0.0.pdf when accessing the documentation on this page. it would be nice to have a pinout of the J contacts of this product on both the belly and on the top as that info is difficult to find.
Thanks! We will update our page to go to the correct location. Thank you for sharing the good links with us.
This little device worked exactly as expected! Thanks to the provided utility, initial configuration was quick and simple, and can be done completely over the device’s Ethernet connection. So there is no need for a serial port on your PC to get it setup.
From a programming standpoint, the serial to Ethernet Gateway was so easy to work with that I was able to have support for it added to my program within 3 hours of unboxing. 45 minutes of that time was me figuring out that I wasn’t setting a variable in my program correctly. So if you only look at the time it took from unboxing to getting data, it really only took closer to 2 hours.
Overall I am very happy with the device and am giving it a 5 star rating.
Unfortunately I didn’t have a spare power supply laying around that I could dedicate to powering this device, and I forgot to include one in my order, so I had to make a separate purchase for one. Until the power supply arrives, the device will be going back into the box. :’(
I am definitely looking forward to using it once the power supply does arrive though, and hope to get many years of service from the adapter.
Thanks Sparkfun for providing yet another great little device!
