To help increase network flexibility and robustness in harsh substation, process, and transportation environments, Dymec Inc . has introduced its DynaStar 1500 Ethernet Terminal Server (DS1500-ETS) data networking platform for integrating serial and IP-based data streams from multiple devices. The company says its DS1500-ETS provides a reliable alternative to non-hardened commercial switches, routers, and terminal servers used in power utility substations, oil refining, and petrochemical plants, water and wastewater processing sites, and transportation systems.

DS1500-ETS integrates Ethernet switching, terminal serving, and IP routing functionality into one platform, eliminating multiple points of failure, while reducing hardware and related deployment costs. Besides supporting Ethernet-enabled automation, DS1500-ETS supports multiple serial protocols, allowing customers to use one networking platform to migrate data streams from different field devices onto their industrial TCP/IP network.

"For users seeking LAN connectivity, our new Ethernet terminal server delivers a great solution for legacy and multi-protocol support, as well as Serial to IP convergence," says Robert Otto, Dymec's senior product marketing manager.

DS1500-ETS' Ethernet VLAN and encryption capabilities allow it to build resilient and secure Ethernet rings in industrial environments. Alternatively, it offers a cost-effective path for converging serial and Ethernet data streams onto existing Ethernet networks, fiberoptic rings, and even into SONET implementations.
