The OP is looking to integrate a device with a console server. "Any
converter" would be a mistake. You can get these things for two dollars,
but you get what you pay for.

Maybe seek suggestions here as to converters others have used with
success, the main criteria for success being robustness, reliability and
build quality.

Personally in this situation I would get the approved, vendor supplied,
genuine part.
