New DeviceMaster® PRO Programmable Serial Device Server with Free Software
Minneapolis, MN-Monday, May 17, 2004 ... Comtrol Corporation, a leading provider of serial device integration technology, has a new programmable device server called DeviceMaster PRO. The DeviceMaster PRO 8-Port 10/100 Base-T device server provides bus-independent serial port expansion, a platform for hosting and running application-specific programs, and the ability to remotely monitor and manage serial devices.
Customers who currently own, purchase, or upgrade to DeviceMaster® device servers can receive Comtrol's new PortVision(TM) serial port management console free!
The DeviceMaster PRO device server delivers quick and easy peripheral connectivity using the Ethernet LAN. This server supports RS-232/422/485 software-selectable interfaces on eight DB9 or RJ45 ports. A 16-port RJ45 model is planned for release in June. It is ideally suited for applications where multiple interface formats are required to connect peripherals located long distances from the server and when programmability and enhanced surge protection of 25KV per port is desired.
When you use DeviceMaster PRO, serial ports can reside outside the server anywhere on the LAN. This means the server can be kept in a secure location while ports conveniently reside anywhere they are needed!
PortVision software offers breakthrough efficiency at locating and remotely configuring and managing device servers over a network from one, centralized personal computer. PortVision software detects and graphically displays every DeviceMaster server on your network. Now, network administrators can see real-time operating conditions for each device server at a glance. The bundled packaging of DeviceMaster PRO with PortVision software gives network administrators an easy-to-use, affordable, graphical, and convenient way to access, manage, and configure serial devices from a centrally located personal computer.
