NetTerminal Model 500

Network Text Terminal
<----- connect this logic box to a monitor and keyboard

a low cost text terminal that provides connectivity to TCP/IP networks


Add your own monitor (or ours) and keyboard to this logic box to create a low cost PC alternative. NetTerminal works using standard Ethernet protocols over thin-net or twisted pair Ethernet cabling. It replaces ASCII/ANSI terminals and PC's running terminal emulation software. The NetTerminal is designed for color and monochrome text applications. The Model 500 has support for two text terminals from its serial ports, acting as a terminal server

Multi-session with Unmatched Performance and User Productivity
Up to 12 color TELNET sessions are provided over 10Mbps Ethernet or local SLIP via serial ports. Users can run applications concurrently on multiple hosts accessible to existing TCP/IP networks.

Built-in TCP/IP Print Server

The NetTerminal can be configured as a print server for network-wide printing using two local RS-232 serial ports and a PC compatible parallel port. Anyone on the network can access a printer off the NetTerminal with LPD or RCMD protocols. Transparent printing is supported using ESC sequences.

Plug & Play Installation

Simply connect NetTerminal to existing TCP/IP networks either using the host cable or DNS for large corporate networks. Sessions are individually configured with a user-friendly administration interface. No added setup on the host is required. Connect the monitor, keyboard and cable; turn the NetTerminal on, and enter the host IP address.

Field Upgradeable
Using the latest Flash ROM technology, the NetTerminal firmware is field upgradeable over the network, allowing it to evolve with user needs. Multiple feature sets are available to address specific requirements.

Self-Contained
All configuration information is stored locally, eliminating the need for complex boot server software installation.

Point-of-Sale Enabled
The NetTerminal's serial and parallel ports are network transparent and can be accessed as local UNIX tty devices from the host, a requirement for many POS applications.

Compact and Reliable
The NetTerminal is a diskless, compact and ergonomic low profile package which provides connections for a VGA monitor, keyboard, system printer, 2 serial devices and an Ethernet network. With no moving parts, it is both reliable and durable.
