MorphStick Keyboard 2 Ethernet
The MorphStick Keyboard Tap 2 Ethernet is a compact network device, capable of converting USB keyboard or USB barcode reader data to Ethernet packets. It taps onto a USB connection between the computer and USB device, captures the transmitted data frames, and sends them as UDP datagrams in a user configurable format.
The MorphStick keyboard ethernet adapter is a variation of the tap version, which does not require a computer for the keyboard or barcode reader to work. It contains a built-in USB host, which polls the connected USB device for data, thus simplifying the setup and reducing the amount of cabling.
The MorphStick Ethernet 2 Keyboard works in the opposite direction, simulating a USB keyboard from incoming UDP data over Ethernet. The source of the UDP data can be a MorphStick Keyboard 2 Ethernet, or data generated from a network device or computer.
MorphStick Ethernet 2 Keyboard
The MorphStick Ethernet 2 Keyboard is a powerful, yet simple to use data converter and logger. Connect the device to a computer using a standard USB cable and the vertical USB-A socket. Connect Ethernet to the RJ45 socket on the other end. After a simple configuration procedure, the Morphstick will simulate a USB keyboard, generating keystrokes from data received over Ethernet.
All MorphStick devices feature a button, which switches them into configuration mode over USB. An free lightweight application is available, which guides through the configuration process. During configuration the basic network communication needs to be configured, such as the where to send the acquired data. It takes just a few minutes to get the basic data transfer running, however the flexibility of the device also allows setting up sophisticated communication schemes.
Tap versus Host
MorphStick Keyboard 2 Ethernet comes in two varieties: Tap and Host. The Tap version works like a keylogger, capturing existing communication between the USB keyboard or barcode reader, and the computer. The Host version contains a built-in USB controller, which actively polls the keyboard or barcode reader for data. Both versions operate in the same way on the Ethernet side.
The bigger picture
Morphsticks are essentially building blocks of bigger communication systems. The data originating from MorphStick Keyboard 2 Ethernet can be sent to several destinations. One of them can be the MorphStick Ethernet 2 Keyboard, creating a transfer link over Ethernet for keyboards and barcode readers. Another destination can be a host computer, with dedicated software. A sample application is delivered, demonstrating this capability. Yet another option is a dedicated MorphStick device solely for the purpose of logging data from several sources.
