Deliver High-Tech, IP-enabled Connectivity Without Rewiring
San Diego, CA - PCN Technology, Inc., global provider of a unique technological solution that enables IP connectivity reliably, seamlessly, and without the need for CAT 5 or CAT 6 cables, offers a suite of IP-485® products with Ethernet-on-Demand(TM) capabilities.
The company's advanced hardware includes an Enterprise Router with four channels at dedicated bandwidths for up to 16 switches, a Single-Channel Network Router and a Network Switch capable of supporting three IP devices. All these products enable Ethernet/IP connectivity over analog or digital twisted-pair wiring. In business or industrial settings, the current network functionality can coexist with technologies that access the Cloud or with any high-tech solution that is IP-enabled. All PCN's IP-485® products are plug and play and support existing serial and low-voltage networks, hardware, applications and infrastructure.
o PCN's Enterprise Ethernet Router enables advanced Ethernet transport on existing serial communication networks. It is used in situations where you want to use multiple switches in your network architecture. This router can integrate up to 16 switches. It is capable of Ethernet data rates of up to 20Mbps between Server and Client on each of four independent channels. In a multiplex mode, it supports serial data rates of 9,600-19,200 Baud.
o PCN's LAN Single-Channel Ethernet Router is ideal for any network infrastructure needing rapid Ethernet/IP integration. The standard router supports 4 PCN Switches on average, with additional connectivity capabilities possible. It handles Ethernet data rates of up to 20 Mbps between Server and Client. In a multiplex mode, serial data rates of 9,600-19,200 Baud are supported.
o PCN's Ethernet Switch is an industrial-grade Client that uses analog (current loop, co-ax, etc.) and twisted-pair wiring (RS485, RS422, RS232, Modbus, POTS, etc.). It has 3 Ethernet ports with data rates of up to 4 Mbps. It supports standard serial data rates of up to 115 Kbps. In a multiplex mode, serial data rates of 9,600-19,200 Baud are possible.
PCN products are FCC approved and compatible with standard networking devices that rely on digital or serial wiring. Wireless devices and wire-line communication devices can also be configured in networks that use PCN products-with no new lines required. PCN's routers and switches are currently in use in dozens of real-world environments and in industrial settings as varied as building automation, water & wastewater treatment and retail/point of sale.
"By enabling Ethernet/IP on existing networks, customers now have the best of both worlds," said Jeff Davis, Vice-President of Sales at PCN. "They're not only maintaining the existing network they already have, but they're able to gain IP on that same existing wire. This not only saves money on construction costs, but you also save on time, and any large shutdown periods."
