The EFNTWK (E-Flex
Network) gateway provides an Ethernet to FlexNet connection to control and monitor devices in
an E-Flex lighting system on the wired
FlexNet link using third-party equipment, such as touch-screens, universal
remote controls and software applications for BMS or AV interfacing.
The Ethernet connection can be used to control a system using the EFNTWK gateway protocol over Telnet or when running the E-Flex Flextool System Configurator software on a PC for system configuration, timeclock scheduling, and control over TCP/IP using a proprietary protocol. The built-in astronomical timeclock provides event scheduling for up to 50 events to control E-Flex devices over FlexNet.
Up to 100 FlexNet devices may be controlled by a single EFNTWK gateway on a FlexNet link segment. Multiple EFNTWK FlexNet gateways can be connected on an Ethernet backbone.
