U20 USB Network Interface

U20 USB Network Interface

Low-Cost, High-Performance USB interface for PCs

The U20 Network Interface is a low-cost, high-performance LON interface for USB-enabled PCs. 

The U20 USB Network Interface connects to a PL-20 Power Line (ANSI/CEA-709.2) LON channel through a wall plug coupling circuit/power supply (included). The U20 interface may also be connected directly to 10.8-18VDC power lines without a coupling circuit, or to virtually any powered line with a customer-supplied coupling circuit/power supply.

It connects LNS®-enabled integration and development tools to LON networks and is ideal for industrial control, building automation, process control, home automation, and transportation applications. 

A 60cm USB extension cable is included with the U20 interface to allow for easy connection in various laptop and desktop environments.
