Greetings from South Africa
We have a project to link up 40 Power sub stations to our Johnson Controls
existing M3 site. Adding Energy monitoring over 4 university campus', each with its own N30.
We are using IME Nemo 96 meters (comes with N2bus / com's )
Some of the Sub Stations are not easily accessible and up to 1km
away and so we are using 2,4Ghz transceivers RS485 ( eg attached settings options) instead of hard wiring the N2 network to each Substation.
On one campus we are using these Radios with Point to multi point ( 1
Server talking to 7 slaves (substations) , 1) Do you see problems with this ? We can see readings from some Nemo meters but, M Explorer shows them offline most the time.
We would like to improve the coms, but we dont know enough about N2 and the radio
settings to get the best results.
I need to understand N2 protocol better to help me understand the settings required etc.
Think, End Char. is best option
In Recieve mode , Promiscious , Unicast/Broadcast or unicast only ? Client and server the same ?
Any advise would be appreciated , or if you know anyone who has done n2 / rs485 wireless bridges that could help ?
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME
