The J-NET ADAPTER is a converter which allows to connect one or more GUARD TOUCH boards to a PC based monitoring system. The J-NET has a USB (type B) and LAN (Ethernet) interface for the monitoring systems and a RS485 port for connection to the GUARD TOUCH. When using the USB interface, the J-NET enables a single PC to monitor and control up to 32 generating sets connected to a RS485 bus. When using the LAN interface, the J-NET enables a PC connected to the Ethernet network or to the web to monitor and control up to 32 generating sets connected to a RS485 bus. The device allows also to monitor UP to 12 generating sets via SNMP protocol.
