The Net2Air Ethernet bridge provides the wireless communication link between the PC running Net2 software and Net2 nano control units. Unlike the Net2Air USB bridge, the Ethernet bridge uses the site's LAN/WAN. This means that multiple Ethernet bridges can be placed around a site and linked back to the PC via LAN/WAN. Net2 nano control units can therefore be installed at a greater distance away from the PC running Net2 software.
We recommend the use of the Net2Air site surveyor kit for checking signal strength around a site prior to installation.
Installation - The unit plugs into the LAN/WAN by means of a standard RJ45 network port. The Net2Air Ethernet bridge driver software is loaded from the Net2 software. Run the Net2 server configuration program to register the bridge with the server program. The Net2 software will include the bridge in its list of ports to be monitored. We recommend a maximum of 10 Net2 nano control units per bridge.
Operation - Once plugged in the Net2Air bridge provides the communication between the Net2 nano control units and the PC.
