Medical and Healthcare
Perle keeps your fingers on the
storing, and processing information about patients is the
key to effective healthcare. Doctors, clinics, hospitals,
and laboratories all need to have better access to up-to-date
Making sure the right information is available
on the network from the moment of capture is the key. Much
data is generated by patient monitoring or treatment equipment
such as heart monitors, blood analysers, and ventilators.
As this medical equipment grows ever more sophisticated, the
demand for real-time data increases too.
By making such information available across
the network, it can be easily shared from the bedside to the
laboratory. Today's health services are striving for maximum
efficiency at minimum cost and the right information can help
determine the most cost-effective treatment.
Perle technology helps put data at the
heart of the healthcare industry. Any device with serial connections
can now be networked and managed remotely - even across the
internet. Complex patient monitoring devices may now be interfaced
to a single network connection.
- Patient monitoring
- Blood and glucose analysers
- Body scanning and X-ray equipment
- Infusion pumps
- Heart monitors
- Diagnostic devices
Engineers and Project Managers that require a cost
effective serial RS232-to-Ethernet solution that is certified for
the IEC 60601-1 medical safety standard must consider the IOLAN
MDC Terminal Server.

|Customer Stories / Application Notes
Monitoring of Fluid Levels in Remote Sterilization Equipment
Challenge: Improve efficiencies by monitoring
the fluid levels in remote autoclaves.
Solution: By installing a remote device
server with serial and with integrated analog input capabilities,
a remote application can over an IP network, remotely
monitor the voltage level information provided by the
fluid sensors in the autoclave.
Benefit:Technicians at a central location
can securely manage the autoclave through its serial
A Major Hospital Centre Upgrades Laboratory Information Management System
Challenge: Integrate blood analysis results with a new Laboratory Information Management System.(LIMS)
Solution: Utilize Perle 1Port Device Servers ( DS1) to connect the blood analizers to the network.
Benefit: The compact form factor allows for a terminal server to be connected to each blood analyzer allowing for assured uptime, network redundancy, easy integration and future scalability.
from Bedside Monitoring Equipment
Challenge: Transmit real-time information
from bedside monitoring devices to hospital nursing
Solution: Use Perle Serial
Cards to interface the central system with hospital monitoring
Benefit: By relaying information to
a central server application, data can be converted automatically
into recognizable graphs, charts and figures.
OSM Helps Hospitals Distribute
Label Data Quickly and Reliably
data from blood analyzers and heart
rate stabilizers and quickly rout
that data to the correct doctors
lab data received from the blood analyzers with the patient's
data via barcode scanners and label printers that are
connected to the network via Perle Terminal Servers.
Benefit: Providing the correct data
at the right time is critical to allow the doctors to
start effective life saving measures.
