Adds an Ethernet interface to a CAEN, CAEN-MLO, or CAENIB automation enclosure. Maximizes Cresnet® network reliability and performance with comprehensive diagnostics, logging, and reporting 0f Cresnet activity and errors. Enables powering of Cresnet devices using PoE+.
The Ethernet to Cresnet Bridge (CAEN-BLOCK-CENCN-2-POE) mounts at the bottom of a CAEN, CAEN-MLO, or CAENIB enclosure to provide a high-speed Ethernet interface between the enclosure and one or more outboard control systems. It includes Cresnet and Override connectivity for the CLX series lighting control modules within the enclosure, and adds a separate isolated Cresnet subnet for outboard Cresnet keypads, thermostats, sensors, and other Cresnet devices. It also allows those Cresnet devices to be powered using a PoE, PoE+, or 24VDC power source.
The Ethernet to Cresnet Bridge works with any Crestron 3-Series Control System® to maximize the reliability and robustness of the Cresnet network. It provides a more sophisticated solution than a Cresnet block or hub. In addition to enabling the distribution of Cresnet data over Ethernet, it also provides two isolated Cresnet subnets, one for lighting modules and one for all other Cresnet devices. Each subnet features sophisticated diagnostics and fault protection to maximize reliability and ease troubleshooting.
NOTE: The CAEN-BLOCK-CENCN-2-POE is compatible with Crestron 3-Series® control systems only.
