The Three Port Ethernet UART provides a 10BaseT Ethernet connection between the Concept 4000 control module and Insight software. In addition to this three RS-232 serial ports are provided.
Installation of the Three Port UART onto a Concept 4000 Controller also allows the Concept 4000’s Automation Communications interface to be enabled. The “Automation” communication formats allow the Concept 4000 system to connect to a 3rd party Home/Building Automation system via an RS232 Serial connection. The protocol is ASCII based for ease of understanding and is designed primarily to enable home automation or building management system (BMS) connectivity.
