The GROUTER4 provides industry proven router network management and simple configuration to seamlessly expand and access LONWORKS control networks.

The GROUTER4 is a compact LON over IP router that supports ANSI 709.1 (LON) and ANSI 852 (IP) communication standards. The LON interface is TP/FT-10 with a removable, pluggable screw-down connector. The IP interface is 10/100 Base-T Ethernet using a standard RJ-45 connector.

Each GRouter4 can be configured to send and receive from multiple routers using selective forwarding to connect multiple network channels without reducing the number of routers to interconnect the system, therefore connecting multiple networks. IP communication between routers can be implemented in uni-cast or multi-cast mode.

Intuitive configuration and fast set-up of the GRouter4 is achieved with an on-board webpage. Remote capabilities are easily implemented allowing tremendous flexibility to set-up and commission control networks in Normal or Manual mode.
