Quatech Announces Addition to Value-Priced Serial Device Server Line

New two-port model provides Ethernet to RS-232/422/485 communication

Hudson OH, October 14-- Quatech, a world-class manufacturer of reliable serial connectivity solutions, announces a new model in their versatile yet budget-friendly serial device server value line, the DSE-410D. This new two-port model, combined with their single-port SSE-410D, and their industry-leading ThinQ(tm) models, gives Quatech a complete range of qualified solutions for serial-to-Ethernet applications.

Available now at a list price of just $299, Quatech's new DSE-410D provides an economical yet robust solution for network enabling two serial devices using a single, compact unit. "As with the single port version, the DSE-410D is a better value, feature-for-feature, than any other two-port serial device server on the market." said Steve Runkel, Quatech's President and CEO. "It is an outgrowth of our continuing efforts to provide Quatech customers with high-quality, attractively-priced product lines that span the entire spectrum of application requirements from the most basic to the most robust."

Much of today's high-tech equipment ships with a serial port for programming, monitoring or diagnostics. 80% of the serial ports are left unconnected, often because a person travels to the port with a laptop to make the connection or because a connection to a permanent PC is not cost-effective. Quatech's DSE-410D enables the standard serial port to be accessed via Ethernet, thereby enabling any authorized computer connected to the LAN, WAN, Intranet or Internet to access the equipment.

The DSE-410D meets the specifications required to support a large number of serial device-to-network applications. It is switch-selectable for RS-232, 422 & 485, and supports baud rates up to 230K. It ships with direct driver support for Windows® 98, Me, NT4, 2000 and XP. The DSE-410D can also be accessed using standard TCP/IP socket commands, and supports serial tunneling applications. Other features include an auto-sensing 10/100 Ethernet interface, UDP Client/Server modes, a Heartbeat connection to automatically re-connect to networks when needed, Telnet support, and for added security, the ability to reject connections from all but a single, defined IP address. The DSE-410D comes with Quatech's standard five-year limited warranty.
