Liberty, SC - Sealevel Systems Inc. introduced Dec. 13, 2002, its new SeaLink family of serial device drivers, which it reports easily connect serial devices directly to an Ethernet network. The firm says SeaLink makes networking devices together easier, even when using legacy equipment that was never intended to be compatible with local area networks/wide area networks (LANs/WANs). SeaLink products use industry-standard TCP/IP protocol, allowing almost any host to access serial ports as easily as if the ports were PC cards physically installed in the host.

Available in eight-, four-, two- and one-port versions, each device's ports can be individually configured via software as RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485. This enables connectivity to a variety of devices, including data acquisition/monitoring equipment, PLCs and retail/point-of-sale devices. Once connected to the network, these serial devices can be controlled and monitored over the Internet, if desired. SeaLink products are available as multi-interface RS-232/422/485, RS-422/485, or RS-232 only. Based on a powerful, embedded microprocessor, SeaLink products are able to communicate over multiple ports at sustained rates of up to 230 kbps.
