The Universal Gateway (UGW) is a protocol converter and connector that allows products with different communication protocols to talk to each other, bringing all connected devices into a single, unified system. As a result, assets can work together to access, exchange, integrate and cooperatively use data in a coordinated manner.
The UGW is bi-directional, allowing communication and commands back to the asset for control or monitoring purposes.
The UGW is available in two input power configurations; a Universal Mains or DC input. As standard, the UGW comes with Modbus TCP/IP or RTU, 14 discrete IOs via General Purpose Inputs (8) and Outputs (6), as well as a serial configuration interface via USB and Bluetooth.
As options, the UGW can also come with Satellite or GSM communication, dry contact relays via electromechanical or high current variants or RF capability.
Available as either a complete mechanical assembly or as a PCA only variant, the UGW is designed to perfectly integrate and supplement Avlite products as well as an existing lighting control system. It is also optimized for integration into third-party equipment and also allows third-party products to be monitored via SATCOM.
The UGW is completely configurable via the UGW Configuration Application that is provided with the unit itself.
Using our Star2M Asset Management software, all connected assets are controlled, monitored and maintained. In all applications, the UGW can be integrated using a standard methodology but is configured by the application and specific interface requirements for the installation.
