Onlink Pro Gateways

* 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.

* 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.

The On Controls Onlink Pro devices are Internet to IR/Serial control gateways designed to enable integrators to manage large control and automation projects. The Onlink Pro gateways represents a high-performance solution with a significantly higher IR range than competitive products, a slender all-metal chassis and the capability to communicate with an astonishing 40 devices simultaneously, such as Apple or Android phones and tablets. The Onlink Pro OLP-201 also features Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability to increase efficiency for installers. Built from the ground up based on feedback from integrators in the field, On Controls engineers have outfitted the Onlink Pro with useful amenities such as an ultra-secure lockable threaded power connector, a real-time clock for timed automation commands, sturdy mounting brackets and an optional rack mount accessory that has the capacity to house up to three Onlink Pro modules in a standard 1U rack space. These state of the art control gateways have been designed specifically for professional integrators seeking a robust solution that is easy to install and can be located conveniently behind a TV, in an A/V rack or just about anywhere else. On Controls Onlink Pro gateways are backed by a 7-year warranty.

"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," stated Itai Ben-Gal, CEO of On Controls. "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," Ben-Gal said.
