How to Connect PI to a Branson Welder that output data through a serial port RS-232

We have a piece of equipment (Branson welder) that has a RS-232 port available. We are putting a RS-232-TCP/IP converter connected to it. Now I am trying to figure out what's the best way to extract the data from the serial port and put it in PI. I know UFL can read directly from serial input, I would still need to test it with the equipment. But I wonder if there's an interface available to pull data from a TCP/IP port into PI?

 

Thanks in advance.
