The IOLAN DS/TS Device Server is the best choice for simple serial to Ethernet connectivity applications. Delivering a cost effective solution in a compact size, the IOLAN DS/TS offers flexibility and advanced TrueSerial® technology making it ideal for applications that require an authentic serial connection across an Ethernet network. IOLAN DS1 Device Servers are also available with support for Extended Temperature Ranges.
Features and Benefits
Flexible and Reliable Serial to Ethernet Connections
The IOLAN DS/TS is ideal for connecting serial-based COM port, UDP or TCP socket based applications to remote devices. Perle’s TruePort re-director provides fixed TTY or COM ports to server based applications enabling communication with remote devices connected to Perle device servers. You can also tunnel serial data between devices across an IP network.
Easy to set up and manage, the IOLAN DS1 has a software selectable RS-232/422/485 interface capability which simplifies setup and eliminates mechanical tampering associated with DIP switch based products.
Perle’s Device Management software, shipped as standard with the IOLAN DS/TS, provides better centralised control and management of multiple units resulting in maximum uptime for your remote equipment. Protection against electrostatic discharges and power surges is provided on the IOLAN DS/TS with its robust 15Kv ESD protection circuitry enabling organisations to utilise this solution with confidence.
Backed with the experience of connecting hundreds of thousands of different devices to Ethernet over the years, using a Perle Device Server you can rest assured that virtually any device with a serial COM port will operate in conjunction with your desired application exactly as it did when you had it directly connected. If the unlikely event occurs that the Perle Device Server does not enable this out of the box, Perle will make it work.

Advanced IP Technology
With support for Next Generation IP (IPv6) the IOLAN range provides organizations with investment protection to meet this rapidly growing standard.
Demand for IPv6, which is compatible with IPv4 addressing schemes, is driven by the need for more IP address. With the implementation and rollout of advanced cellular networks, a robust method is needed to handle the huge influx of new IP addressable devices on the Internet. In fact, the US Department of Defense has mandated that all equipment purchased be IPv6 compatible. In addition, all major Operating Systems such as Windows, Linux, Unix and Solaris, as well as routers, have built-in support for IPv6.
It is therefore important for end users and integrators to select networking equipment that incorporates the IPv6 standard. The IOLAN line with support for IPv6 already built in, is the best choice in serial to Ethernet technology.
The Perle IOLAN DS/TS Device Server is backed by the best service and support in the industry including Perle’s unique lifetime warranty. Since 1976 Perle has been providing its customers with networking products that have the highest levels of performance, flexibility and quality.
