Comtrol, Leading Manufacturer of Device Connectivity Products, Unveils New Serial Device Servers

MINNEAPOLIS — Dec. 10, 2008…

Comtrol Corporation (http://www.comtrol.com), a worldwide leader in device connectivity solutions, today introduced the DeviceMaster® RTS 2-Port 1E and 2E serial device servers. Used to network-enable two serial devices on any Ethernet network, the servers come with a combination of features not necessarily offered by the competition.

“We talk to hundreds of customers every day,” said Ehssan Taghizadeh, president and COO of Comtrol Corporation. “They not only want fast, reliable and secure network connections, they also want simplified installation and a product that works in extreme operating conditions, and they don’t want to pay a fortune. Our new DeviceMaster RTS 2-Port is just that—a trustworthy serial device server at a great price.”

The DeviceMaster RTS 2-Port offers a combination of two serial ports with screw terminal connectors, dual Ethernet ports, edge-mount DIN-rail housing, and an extended temperature range, which makes the product ideally suited to industrial communication, material handling, and traffic transportation applications.

DeviceMaster RTS 2-Port 1E and 2E serial device servers offer a unique mix of value-added features, including:

  • DIN-rail mounting for convenient installation;
  • Wide DC voltage ranges (5–30 volts), which ensure the product operates in a variety of environments;
  • Wide operating temperature ranges (-37º–74º C), which ensure the product works well in challenging and varied physical environments; and
  • 2 Ethernet ports on the 2E so customers can daisy-chain devices together for a cleaner layout, a faster installation and a more cost-effective solution because there’s no need for multiple Ethernet switches.
