Installation Walkthrough MultiNet Serial-to-Ethernet Converter

MultiNet is a communications module that provides GE Multilin serial ModBus IEDs with ModBus TCP/IP communications over Ethernet, allowing connection to fiber optic LAN and WAN network systems. MultiNet has the capability to connect up to 32 serial ModBus devices eliminating complex wiring and additional communications converters, and providing a streamlined and economical Ethernet hub. Unlike most communications converters that are designed for commercial use, MultiNet is environmentally hardened to withstand severe utility and industrial conditions.
