Gateway Overview

The Packet Power Ethernet Gateway (EG) is a key component of the Packet Power system architecture. It provides an interface between the wireless monitoring devices and the monitoring application. The Gateway automatically detects any new monitoring devices, seamlessly adding them to the network.  All Gateways need to be installed and configured to run on the local Ethernet network. If the monitoring application is gathering data using open protocols such as BACnet/IP, EtherNet/IP, Modbus, MTConnect, or SNMP some additional steps are needed that are specific to each of these protocols.
