UEI-RSS Serial Server makes PowerDNx serial devices accessible as standard Windows or Linux serial ports

Walpole, MA (May 26, 2011) — United Electronic Industries (UEI) is pleased toannounce the release of the UEI-RSS Serial Server. The new software makes UEI’spopular line of PowerDNx DNx-SL-501 and DNx-SL-508 devices accessible as standardWindows or Linux serial ports. The serial server allows up to 255 serial ports to becontrolled by a single PC over a single Ethernet port. The new RSS not only allowsusers to expand the number of standard serial ports available on a single PC, it alsoallows these ports to be mounted remotely. Using UEI’s standard chassis, the ports maybe located up to 100 meters from the host; while utilizing the Fiber interface cubes, theserial ports may be up to 20 kM from the host. The UEI-RSS Serial Server is includedwith the purchase of UEI’s DNx-SL-501, and DNx-SL-508 devices.The setup and operation of the UEI-RSS is quick and easy, allowing the user to installthe application, assign devices to ports, and save configurations in a matter of minutes.The status window displays each port’s status and incoming/outgoing traffic. Status foreach port is updated once a second. The UEI-RSS runs as standard communicationsports in Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit), and Linux.With the UEI-RSS Serial Server, UEI continues its mission to provide the mostinnovative data acquisition and control solutions in the marketplace.

About the “Cube”

UEI’s powerful “Cube” architecture is a compact (4 x 4 x 4” or 4 x 4 x 5.8”) Ethernet-based I/O platform. It may be deployed in five configurations: 1) Ethernet I/O slaved to a host PC, 2) Stand alone Data Logger/Recorder, 3) Linux-based Programmable Automation Controller (UEIPAC), or 4) Simulink Coder target (UEISIM), 5) Modbus TCP based I/O slave (UEI Modbus). Each Cube consists of a core module (with processor and network interface) and three or six open I/O slots. Users select the deployment option and I/O boards that meet their system requirements. With over 30 I/O boards available, there’s sure to be a configuration to meet any application requirement. A six-slot Cube provides up to: 150 analog inputs (up to 24 ICP channels), 192 analog outputs, 288 digital I/O, 48 counter or quadrature channels, 72 ARINC-429 channels and/or 24 Serial or CAN-bus ports. A full description of the “Cube” is available at www.ueidaq.com.

... the RACKtangle

The RACKtangle I/O chassis offers a similar capability as the cube, but in a more conventional, 3U rack form factor with easily accessed front-loading I/O boards. In addition, it offers 12 I/O slots and supports up to 300 A/D (including up to 48 ICP channels), 394 D/A, 576 DIO, 144 ARINC-429 or 96 CAN or Serial I/O ports. The Gigabit interface also provides two independent ports, one used for primary system control and the second used for real-time diagnostics. The HalfRACK chassis is the same except with 6-slots.About UEIFounded in 1990, UEI is a leader in the PC/Ethernet data acquisition and control, Data Logger/Recorder and Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) markets. UEI’s I/O “Cube” and RACKtangle I/O chassis are compact, rugged platforms, ideal for DAQ, Logging, and control applications in a wide range of applications and industries including automotive, aerospace/aviation, unmanned vehicles, appliance test, simulator control, in-vehicle test, wind and solar power system control, semiconductor manufacturing, medical equipment, and more. UEI offers both COTS and custom products to OEMs, end-users, and systems integrators worldwide. With analog, digital, counter, CAN-bus, Serial I/O, ARINC-429 I/O and more, UEI will have the interface you need. UEI supports all popular Windows, Vista, Linux and Real-time operating systems, programming languages and application packages, including LabVIEW, MATLAB and DASYLab.
