The L-IP Redundant connects twisted pair channels (TP/?FT-10 or TP/?XF-1250) with the Ethernet/?IP-852 channel in LonMark Systems and allows building a redundant network infrastructure. An integrated algorithm detects and “heals” a broken cable on the TP/?FT-10 channel and helps to find the point of failure immediately. In addition, the L-IP Redundant monitors the nodes on the TP/?FT-10 channel and creates an alarm in case of a failure. For this reason, L-IP Redundant can only be used as a Configured Router.
Full redundancy on both the IP channel and the CEA-709 channel including device redundancy can be achieved using two devices in parallel (Twin Mode).
The integrated CEA-852 Configuration Server can manage up to 100?IP-852 devices. The configuration is done through the built-in Web interface.
Alarms report a broken network cable, node failures, or high communication loads. The L-IP Redundant supports alarming according to the LonMark profile definition. Similarly, alarm conditions are provided via network variables. Alarm messages are displayed immediately via the built-in Web interface and the LNS® plug-in. Alarm conditions can be forwarded via e-mail in combination with a L-INX Automation Server, an L-VIS Touch Panel, or an L-GATE Gateway, to inform about a node failure or a broken network cable
