Minneapolis, MN—Tuesday, May 4, 2004 … Comtrol Corporation, a leading provider of serial device integration technology, announces a new program to help customers cost-effectively trade up to the company’s new DeviceMaster® family of device servers. Customers can trade in qualifying first-generation products for a cash rebate of $25/port. Depending on the model of DeviceMaster selected, the rebate can save 20%-30% off the price of the new technology purchase! Plus, customers who currently own, purchase, or trade up to DeviceMaster device servers or serial hubs can now receive Comtrol’s new PortVision™ serial port management console at no charge—yes, it’s free!Comtrol was one of the first companies to offer Ethernet device servers that connect multiple serial devices. These devices communicate with applications running on remotely networked host PC servers. Since the introduction of the DeviceMaster family of Ethernet device servers, the company’s previous device server products (InterChangeTM VS1000, RocketPort® Serial Hub, and RocketPort Serial Hub Si) have been retired. Now, owners of these products can get a “trade-in rebate” toward the purchase price of DeviceMaster models.“Our customers have been extremely happy with their RocketPort serial hubs and many have already moved to the new DeviceMaster line,” says Lee Stagni, president of Comtrol. “Our goal is to help them standardize technology platforms so they can take full advantage of the benefits of our new PortVision serial port management software, which delivers a superior graphical interface and enables better device server access and management.”The trade-in program runs through December 31, 2004. A complete list of qualifying trade-in products and qualifying purchase products is located on Comtrol’s Web site at For more information about Comtrol's serial hub trade-in program or other device connectivity solutions, contact Comtrol at 800-926-6876 or visit Comtrol's Web site at Comtrol CorporationComtrol Corporation, based in Minneapolis, is a leading global provider of device connectivity, data communication, and enterprise integration technologies.
