The EC400 interface, for addressable fire systems, is a secure network infrastructure device that’s used for accessing the Eaton Lon network of addressable control panels over intranet or ethernet.
The interface’s built in configuration server manages up to 256 IP devices on 1 IP channel, without a dedicated management PC. The easy to understand diagnostic LEDs, enable installers to easily install and troubleshoot the device, without the need for expert knowledge or dedicated troubleshooting tools.
The EC400 unit supports DHCP even with changing IP addresses in an intranet environment. To connect the Eaton Lon network via intranet, a minimum of two EC400s are required. The first must be configured as a 'configuration server' and the second as a 'client'.
