n-DNet™ HUB – Network Interface Unit
Collects, stores and forwards data from up to eight meters
The n-DNet™ HUB is a stan-dalone network interface unit connecting endpoints to the Mobix patented n-Dimensional Network (see box for n-DNet™ description) It is a feature rich HUB designed to collect, store and forward data from up to eight meters. Meters could be in any combination of electric, gas and/or water with Pulse, RS-232 or M-Bus outputs. A backup battery ensures data and operational integrity including last gasp message so critically important for outage management.
As a node on the patented n-Dimensional mesh network, the n-DNet™ HUB communicates simultaneously in parallel over RF and PLC, thereby guaranteeing continuous reliable two-way communications at the highest cost efficiency. System tampering detection, parameter driven abnormal consumption and remote service connect/disconnect are among the smart n-DNet™ HUB unique features.
Mobix n-DNet HUB can also be used as a Repeater unit. When the HUB functions as a Repeater it is not connected to certain meter or group of meters but as a stand-alone unit which is installed between network nodes (multiple) and enables scalability and better connectivity. The Repeater receives data from other nodes and transmits the data to the Concentrator.
The most common use of a Repeater in a Mobix n-DNet™ network is when the meters are connected to RF-Only EndPoints. The meters transmit the data via RF, the Repeater collects the data and transmits it forward using n-DNet communications (RF & PLC signals simultaneously).
