Each Model 110B is a two-channel physical layer repeater for TP/FT-10 LonWorks networks. Data received on one channel is reconditioned and re- transmitted on the other channel. Each Model 110B effectively doubles the wiring distance and the number of nodes that can be placed on the network. On-board jumpers allow each channel to be terminated independently for bus or free topology. Three LEDâ€™s provide diagnostic information for troubleshooting. A green LED indicates when power is applied. Two red LEDâ€™s indicate when data is being received on each of the two local channels. Up to (5) Model 110B units can be daisy chained together to create up to a (10) channel repeater. This is accomplished via a short jumper cable between units. Data received on one network segment is transmitted on all other network segments. This allows the user to create a field expandable repeater from two to ten channels using a single product. Note, the daisy chain feature of the Model 110B is not on the network side but actually takes place on a separate daisy chain bus between repeaters. This has several advantages. One, there is minimal delay between the received signal and the repeated signal. Even with a ten-segment repeater (5 Model 110Bs), the delay is equivalent to a single repeater. Two, each network segment is completely isolated from all other network segments. A short on one segment will only affect that segment and not the others
