Perle’s Ethernet I/O technology (IOLAN
DS I/O Device Servers) enables comprehensive access
and control of remote digital I/O, analog I/O, pulse I/O,
temperature sensors as well as connections of remote serial
equipment on any IP network. The IOLAN DS I/O has the ability
to monitor environmental alarms, intrusion detection, relay
contact closures and equipment failure. Through remote operator
or application control, opening and closing of integrated
relay contacts or activation of digital output signals can
be incorporated into any response of a critical event.
The monitoring and protection of high-value
distributed I/O assets involves more than simple access to
its data, it also involves the protection and control of
its physical environment along with the ability to take corrective
action when necessary. Digital and analog sensors, proximity
and mechanical switches, relays, pushbuttons, temperature
and humidity sensors can assist in determining the integrity
of the asset’s local environment. Information
from these sent back to a central support location over a
network can help an enterprise react more quickly to an important
event or failure. IOLAN DS I/O Device Servers are ideal for

Access I/O Devices over Ethernet using Popular Central
An IOLAN I/O Device Server is ideal for remote
I/O management using common
SCADA or OPC Servers using Modbus/TCP protocol as well as Network Management
Systems ( NMS) utilizing SNMP.
Flexible and Reliable COM/TTY Access to Ethernet
An Application Program Interface ( API ) is also available
so that custom applications can be developed to access distributed
I/O channels attached to remote
IOLAN I/O Device Servers. Common serial applications such
as Visual Basic can be used to send IOLAN API commands to
remote IOLAN I/O Device Servers across an IP network. This
API is available for the most popular operating systems today.
Universal I/O on IOLAN I/O Device Servers provides
flexibility when used across a wide array of environments.
Individual digital channels can be configured as either
inputs or outputs. Analog Inputs can support a broad range
of voltage or current type devices including industrial
grade temperature sensors such as thermocouples and RTDs.
Models with integated solid state relays can be used to
control remote contact closures.
Automated response to alarm conditions
IOLAN DS I/O Device Servers have the capability of measuring
input conditions and intelligently alerting enterprise resources
such as central TCP/IP based applications, Syslog or SNMP.
By instantly generating alerts when pre-defined threshold
levels have been exceeded, alarm notifications can be passed
along when needed. This eliminates the packet based overheads
associated with polled environments.
Rugged Industrial-Grade Design
Compact and protective metal enclosure for wall mount or
DIN rail mounting environments. Industrial grade unit protection
is provided though optical isolation of I/O channels of
2000 Vrms, Ethernet isolation of 1500 Vrms, open/short
detection logic on RTD/Thermocouple inputs and 15,000 volts
electrostatic discharge protection across all serial pins.
Advanced IP Technology
Demand for IPv6, which is
compatible with IPv4 addressing schemes, is driven by the
need for more IP address. With the implementation and rollout
of 3G cellular networks, a robust method is needed to handle
the huge influx of new IP addressable devices on the Internet.
In fact, the US Department of Defense has mandated that
all equipment purchased from 2005 be IPv6 compatible with
full implementation by 2008. In addition, all major Operating
Systems such as Windows, Linux, Unix and Solaris, as well
as routers, have built-in support for IPv6.It is therefore important for end users and integrators
to select networking equipment that incorporates the IPv6
standard. The IOLAN line with support for IPv6 already built
in, is the best choice in serial to Ethernet technology.
IOLAN DS is backed by the best service and support in the
industry including Perle’s unique lifetime warranty.
Since 1976 Perle has been providing its customers with networking
products that have the highest levels of performance, flexibility
