The L-IP Routers of the type ECTC (successors of LIP-1ECTB, LIP-3ECTB, LIP-33ECTB, and LIP-3333ECTB) connect twisted pair channels (TP/?FT-10 or TP/?XF-1250) with the Ethernet/?IP channel (IP-852) in LonMark Systems. L-IP routes CEA-709 packets through an IP based network such as a LAN (Ethernet), an Intranet, or even the Internet.In order to provide optimal router configurations, the L-IP is available in four different versions providing either 4 x TP/ FT-10, 2 x TP/ FT-10, 1 x TP/FT10, or 1 x TP/ XF-1250. Every L-IP supports the operating modes “Smart Switch Mode” and “Configured Router Mode”.
For an easy integration on the IP side, the L-IP provides a Web interface. On L-IPs of the type ECTC, the Web interface can also be used via an encrypted HTTPS connection. Through this Web interface, the built-in CEA-852 Configuration Server can be switched on and configured. The Configuraton server is thus always available online in the network and no additional software tool is required.
