Patton Launches Industrial-Ethernet and Hardened-Network Gear at ISA EXPO 2006
EtherBITS™ serial device servers and EnviroNET™ NEMA4 industrial-network solutions will take the spotlight at ISA EXPO 2006 in booth 2571 and during Patton's Thursday press conference.
GAITHERSBURG, MD: At ISA EXPO 2006 next week, Patton Electronics — the leader in network-access, connectivity, and VoIP — will showcase new solutions for the industrial-automation network: the EtherBITS™ brand of single-port serial-to-Ethernet device servers, and the EnviroNET™ brand of hardened industrial-network equipment.
Scott Whittle, VP of Product Management, will introduce Patton's industrial-networking solutions at ISA's press event on Thursday, October 19th at 11:00 AM.
"Everything-over-Ethernet," said Mr. Whittle. "That is where the automated environment is going. PLCs, meters, card readers...Patton's solution preserves legacy networking investments while leveraging the benefits of new technology. EtherBITS™ brings industrial devices into the age of IP."
EtherBITS™ single-port device servers transparently and securely connect serial RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 devices to wired and wireless IP networks for automated control, monitoring, and data-collection.
"We're breaking environmental barriers," said Johnnie Grant, product manager. "Years ago Patton pioneered a technology for breaking the Ethernet distance barrier. Now, with EnviroNET™, we're pushing network technologies to greater extremes."
EnviroNET™ solutions deliver industrial communications (Ethernet-over-copper, commercial/outdoor VoIP, and others) in temperatures ranging from -40 to +185°F (-40 to +85°C). Suitable for installation in offshore oil rigs, pit mines, railway beds, and other harsh environments, EnviroNET™ enclosures protect network equipment against high wind, precipitation, salt spray, sand, oil, corrosive chemicals, and ice. An expansive range of EnviroNET™ products is under development.
Patton is now shipping EnviroNET™ Ethernet Extenders that extend 10/100Base-TX Ethernet up to 5 miles (8 kilometers) over copper twisted-pair, and EnviroNET™ Voice-over-IP Gateways that convert FXS, FXO, and ISDN BRI circuits to state-of-the-art VoIP for outdoor pay phones, utility-pole call-boxes, or mine-shaft hotlines (where wireless is not an option).
Meet Patton in booth 2571 at ISA EXPO 2006 during 17-19 October at the Reliant Center in Houston, Texas, USA.
Patton's press conference will take place at 11:00 AM Thursday 19 October in the Press Room, located in Room 101A. To schedule an interview with Mr. Whittle, contact Annie Walker at 301-975-1000 x107 or email@example.com.
