On Controls introduced the first three Onlink Pro models of Ethernet gateway devices last week. The products were derived from a platform engineered for commercial-grade applications to deliver improved performance and reliability, On Controls explained.

The models that On Controls has made available to integrators are the OLP-101, OLP-102, and the OLP-201, and each has unique configurations to suit different applications, the company said.

More on each model from On Controls:

OLP-101: Bidirectional RS−232 or RS−485 to Ethernet control signal converter allows two RS−232 (or one RS−485 and one RS−232) controllable devices to be controlled via an Ethernet or LAN connection. Capable of simultaneous communication with up to 40 devices.

OLP-102: Bidirectional RS−232 or RS−485 to Ethernet control signal converter. It allows four RS−232 (or one RS−485 and three RS−232) controllable devices to be controlled via an Ethernet or LAN connection. Capable of simultaneous communication with up to 40 devices.

OLP-201: Adds Power over Ethernet (PoE), bidirectional RS−232 to Ethernet with IR control signal converter, allows two RS−232 and four IR controllable devices to be controlled via an Ethernet or LAN connection. Capable of simultaneous communication with up to 40 devices.

“The Onlink Pro series of products has been meticulously engineered with the integrator in mind, delivering the high-performance, reliability and scalability that integration professionals must have in order to meet the needs of a growing base of IoT consumers,” Itai Ben-Gal, CEO of On Controls, said in a statement. “We engineered these gateways to significantly outperform competitive Ethernet devices and give our dealer base the versatile hardware resources and competitive advantage they have been asking for.”

The Onlink Pro models were designed specifically for professional integrators seeking a “robust solution” that is easy to install, On Controls explained. The models are backed by the company’s seven-year warranty.
