Perle Systems Expands IOLAN SDSX T Line to Include More Port Variants

IOLAN SDS T Line Operates in Extreme Temperatures

NASHVILLE, TN—September 7,  2006— Perle Systems, a global developer and manufacturer of serial to Ethernet connectivity and networking management products today announced the release of two more models of the IOLAN SDS T line. The IOLAN SDS T models address the need for connecting remote serial devices that operate in extreme temperatures to an enterprise IP network. On the heals of a recent launch of the IOLAN SDS1 T, which was Perle’s initial extended temperature device server, Perle has launched the IOLAN SDS2 T and IOLAN SDS4 T.  The IOLAN SDS2 T and SDS4 T 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 are often subjected to harsh environments and severe temperatures. Standard commercial grade products will not suffice in these cases.

“ Following the exceptional success and rapid adoption of the one port extended temperature models, Perle recognized a requirement for the same industries to have extended temperature device servers with more than one serial port “ says Julie McDaniel, Vice President Marketing, Perle Systems. “The release of the IOLAN DSD2 T and IOLAN SDS4 T  strengthen our position as a global provider of superior serial to Ethernet connectivity to a broad diversification of industries worldwide ”
The IOLAN SDS2 T and SDS4 T boast a full feature set as do all Perle SDS products, such as

software selectable EIA/RS-232/422/485 interface, IPv6 technology,  66Mhz /87 MIPS processor for the best performance on the market and unmatched security capabilities.
Perle’s extended temperature products enable administrators to securely access remote serial console ports on equipment that is subjected to harsh environments and extreme temperatures such as security cameras, alarms, traffic controllers, sensors and tracking devices, through an IP network.

The Perle IOLAN SDS2 T  and IOLAN SDS4 T are available immediately through Perle Distributors  worldwide.
