EG2-NA & EG2

Ethernet Gateway

The Ethernet Gateway provides a connection between an iLight network and an Ethernet LAN. This allows a user to control and configure the iLight system using iCANsoft on a LAN network PC or via the internet rather than by connecting directly into iCANnet™. Where a wireless LAN is in place (or by connecting a wireless router into the Ethernet Gateway) the user can access the network with a Wi-Fi enabled PC running iCANsoft.

The Ethernet Gateway is also the host for the iLight series of remote applications including iOS (iPhone® / iPod touch® / iPad®) and a web server front end where applications are downloaded separately. Coupling the EG-2 to a WIFI network enables scene control, visual feedback and modification from your hand held device.

The Ethernet Gateway also facilitates connection to the internet when used with iCANsoft, a firewall, ISP and a Ethernet switch, this then enables remote connection for programming & obtaining diagnostics of the lighting control system.

The built in astronomical timeclock feature enables pre-programmed timed events for your lighting system. The holiday mode feature delivers an added feeling of security as the system can replay up to 2 weeks of recorded activity whilst the building is unoccupied.

The Ethernet Gateway is available in two versions: EG2-NA - Ethernet Gateway including power supply and steel enclosure.

EG2 - Ethernet Gateway in DINrail enclosure. Power Supply and metal DINRail enclosure available to order separately.
