High Resolution Systems LLC has introduced four size options and four different price levels for its Universal Device Controller (UDC), a software-based control platform that allows simple, cost-effective control of devices using IP (TCP/UDP) or serial (232/422/485) protocols.

They just keep their current configuration settings more
