Firstly, the Ethernet Gateway 4 enables the connection to the iMonnit Online Software.
There is a power over ethernet option which features modified gateway hardware. Allowing it to be powered through the Ethernet Port. However, it does not include a PoE Power Injector.
Ethernet Gateway 4 features include:
- Updated Modbus TCP-IP and SNMP to support new sensor profiles
- Internet MIB is implemented on the gateway for industry tools to auto discover the gateway and understand its features
- Enhanced SNMP walk to only show data for valid OIDs (sensor data that exists in the system)
- SNMP interface in addition to integers, the gateway has additional OIDs to present the same data in HEX and string (human-readable) format.
Please note if you plan on using an alternative interface to the sensors other than iMonnit. Such as Modbus TCP, SNMP, the direct push of data from gateway to on-premise or 3rd party server, the purchase of an unlock code will allow free roaming of the data from the hardware.
