Perle Systems Expands IOLAN SDS Line to Include Extreme Temperature Device Server

IOLAN SDS1 T Operates in Extreme Temperatures

NASHVILLE, TN—July 19,  2006— Perle Systems, a global developer and manufacturer of serial to Ethernet connectivity and networking management products today announced the release of a new model of the IOLAN SDS line that addresses the need for connecting remote serial devices that operate in extreme temperatures to an enterprise IP network. The IOLAN SDS1 T will operate in industrial grade temperatures the parameters of which are -40F to +165F (-40C to +74C). Serial based equipment found with traffic management, oil and gas pipelines, weather tracking and other remote applications must function in temperatures that cannot be supported by commercial based serial device servers. Boasting this extended temperature feature along with a rugged steel casing, the IOLAN SDS1 T enables administrators to securely access remote serial console ports on equipment subjected to harsh environments and severe temperatures such as security cameras, alarms, traffic controllers, sensors, tracking devices, through an IP network.

The IOLAN SDS1 T has a DB9M connector and as with all IOLAN SDS units, an EIA/RS-232/422/485 software selectable interface and 10/100 Ethernet. In addition IOLAN SDS1 T offers extensive security, flexibility and next generation IPv6 technology making it ideal for applications that require remote device/console management, data capture or monitoring under extreme temperature conditions.

“With the launch of the IOLAN SDS1T, Perle is extending our offerings by providing the capability of operating serial to Ethernet connectivity under extreme or harsh temperatures. This capability, coupled with the Perle IOLAN world class feature set gives a specific niche of customers a reliable, secure and cost effective solution “says Julie McDaniel, Vice President of Marketing, Perle Systems.

The Perle IOLAN SDS1 T is available immediately through Perle Distributors  worldwide.
