Maritime professionals need innovative technology and reliable designs for applications on the bridge, dock, open deck, or in a control room. In addition to redundant network systems with failover capability, the equipment must comply with standards to certify an ability to operate in environments with varying temperatures, corrosion, and vibration.
Perle designs products in strict accordance with globally accepted standards for use in subsea, topside, onshore and hazardous locations. Here are just a few examples of how Perle Media Converters, Serial Terminal Servers and other device networking hardware meet the needs of marine customers and their system integrators.
Ninety Percent of Everything integrate Perle Wireless Device Servers for Data Transmission on Ships
IOLAN Wireless Device Servers provide serial to Ethernet conversion and allow them to stream and access data from navigational equipment with RS422 serial communication ports over WiFi.
Mullglen install Perle Media Converters to remove EMI from Sonar data transmission
5 years of unreliable data transmission on fishing trawlers finally solved by installing a fiber network for transmission of sonar fish finder data.
Aker Solutions choose Perle Device Servers for High Data Throughput Rates
Device Servers integrated into Master Control Stations on oil platforms enable critical serial to Ethernet communication between topside and subsea equipment
PanGeo Subsea integrates Perle IOLAN Device Servers into Sub-Bottom ImagerTM (SBI).
Geo-hazard and seafloor debris data gathered by the SBI on the ocean floor is transmitted to the surface for pipeline route assessment via Perle Serial to Ethernet Device Servers.
Subsea 7 uses Perle Terminal Servers to provide precise GPS positioning information
Perle IOLAN Terminal Servers collect raw data from GPS receivers and transmit corrected data to a remote network communications center where it is converted from IP to serial.
University of Victoria Underwater Observatory Uses Perle Technology to Deliver Data to the Surface in Real-Time
IOLAN Device Servers provide remote monitoring and configuration of submerged equipment and real time data collection.
Wood Group uses Terminal Server technology to interface with SCADA system for oil flow control
Perle IOLAN Device Servers provide a Modbus communications gateway between the RS485 serial network of the Variable Speed Drives and the SCADA Ethernet based network. This enables onshore and offshore personnel to monitor and control the output of pumps on oil production platforms.
