Comtrol Launches PortVision® DX Advanced Device Management Software

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota – May 22, 2013 – Comtrol Corporation today announced the release of PortVision® DX management software for its DeviceMaster and RocketLinx lines of industrial communications products. The new software, building on the success of PortVision DX, includes a number of feature enhancements and the addition of full support for the RocketLinx industrial Ethernet switch product line.

Released with support for all current Microsoft operating systems including Windows 8, PortVision DX enables one to remotely discover, configure, monitor, and manage Comtrol’s RocketLinx and DeviceMaster products from a single application. A detailed GUI interface, customizable notes, interactive help, basic and advanced network settings, and easy user guide access are all features which enable administrators using PortVision DX to simplify installation and management of a single switch or a large network deployment.
