- port RS-232 Terminal Server with Dual AC power and dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet
- PCI slot for V.92 modem card and advanced data encryption
By using encryption technologies, an IOLAN can protect sensitive and confidential data from a serial device such as a credit card reader before being sent across a corporate Intranet or public Internet. For compatibility with peer encryption devices, all of the major encryption ciphers such as AES, 3DES, RC4, RC2 and CAST128 are fully supported.
Backed with the experience of connecting hundreds of thousands of different devices to Ethernet over the years, using a Perle Console Server you can rest assured that virtually any device with a serial COM port will operate in conjunction with your desired application exactly as it did when you had it directly connected.
The IOLAN SCS has built-in fault tolerant capabilities to ensure secure and reliable access for managing important mission critical equipment. Dual Ethernet interfaces on the IOLAN SCS provide a backup network path while dual AC power supply models ensure that console management is available even if the primary AC power source fails. For remote administrators that require access from home, on the road or in the event of a total network failure, an optional IOLAN V.92 modem card delivers a solid, integrated solution with direct phone line attachment via its onboard RJ11 jack.
Protection against electrostatic discharges and power surges is provided with robust 15Kv ESD protection circuitry on each serial port.
