Third Party converters cannot be used to extend Infinet over Ethernet or phone lines

Issue

3rd Party RS485 to Ethernet or other connection types are available. Will they work with Infinet?

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

  • Infinet networks
  • Infilink 200, Infilink 210

Cause

Sometimes existing cabling is available on a site, using this could reduce install costs.

Resolution

Third party converters and extenders are not supported on Infinet networks.

It is not possible to use most 3rd party devices as the latency (delay) times will be too long for the protocol to operate correctly. This will include:

  • RS485 - Ethernet converters
  • RS485 Tied line Modems
  • Any other type of Modem
  • Any GSM packet modems
  • Other RF devices
