Patton's Low-Cost IpStatMux Transitions RS-232 Device Networks to Ethernet/IP
At half the cost of a traditional statmux, Patton's IpStatMux(TM) Model 3038 provides immediate or future migration to all-IP networking by transparently transmitting up to eight asynchronous EIA-232/V.24 data-streams over Ethernet/IP and synch-serial co
Manufactured at Patton's USA headquarters and priced at half the cost of traditional multiplexers, the IpStatMux(TM) offers RS-232/V.24 device networks a smooth transition to Ethernet/IP.
Patton's Model 3038 is the first and only multiplexer on the market that integrates four or eight asynchronous EIA-232/V.24 interfaces with dual Ethernet ports and a synchronous-serial V.35, X.21 or T1/E1 port.
"Ethernet/IP is the future of industrial networking," said Johnnie Grant, product manager. "Sooner or later, any existing RS-232 device will require an IP network connection. Patton's latest technological innovation makes selecting the right equipment for next-generation device networks a no-brainer."
Control Engineering (2/1/2009) confirms IEEE 802.3 Ethernet is a growing force in industrial networking.
At half the cost of traditional statmux equipment, Patton's IpStatMux(TM) is an obvious candidate for replacing aging RS-232 multiplexers in connections to PLCs, RTUs, meters, barcode scanners, gas pumps, cash registers, terminals, and similar asynchronous devices.
By providing access and connectivity to the Ethernet/IP LAN or WAN while simultaneously supporting existing synchronous-serial connections, Patton's Model 3038 future-proofs RS-232 industrial, SCADA, telemetry, and control engineering applications.
"Whether you're migrating to IP networking now, or further down the road," Mr. Grant continues, "the IpStatMux(TM) is the lowest-cost, most flexible solution for multi-port asynchronous terminal connectivity."
The IpStatMux(TM) combines 115.2 kbps output streams from up to eight EIA-232 or V.24 devices into a single composite data-stream with per-port configurations for speed, flow control, echo, and testing.
Patton's IpStatMux(TM) supports immediate or future migration to all-IP networking by transmitting the composite data stream transparently over the Internet, a private IP network, or a low-cost PPP, Frame Relay, or T1/E1 service.
Earlier this month Patton announced the Model 3231 Managed SHDSL Modem for rugged environments that cuts setup and operation costs for ISA and control engineering applications.
Featuring a front-panel touchpad for fast, easy set-up, Patton's industrial SHDSL modem extends industrial Ethernet connections up to 9.4 kilometers (5.84 miles).
