TrueSerial® is an innovative approach that delivers the most authentic serial connection across an Ethernet network.
Historically, serial based software applications and devices were implemented around a simple direct cable connection. Designers developed character oriented protocols for these legacy systems that were completely suitable for this type of communication scheme.
However, as companies begin replacing their direct serial cable connections with a modern Ethernet infrastructure using serial RS232 to Ethernet converter products, some will experience difficulties in making this networked connection behave as it did when directly connected. This can be attributed to the lack of raw processing power as well as how the data is handled across the network by the serial to Ethernet converters.
Perle IOLAN Terminal Servers, with TrueSerial® technology, now provides a solution to this problem. Software applications and devices can now seamlessly communicate across a network as if a serial cable were still there.
The TrueSerial® Difference
IOLAN Device Plug-ins
Backed with the experience of connecting hundreds of thousands of different devices to Ethernet over the years, using a Perle IOLAN 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. Request a free engineering consultation now.
Perle IOLAN Device Servers utilize customer installable “Device Plug-ins” to successfully network devices where other solutions have failed.
