Can the RPTR-ECH-WW repeater be used on a TP/FT-10 LON trunk?

Issue

Can the RPTR-ECH-WW repeater be used on a TP/FT-10 LON trunk?

Product Line

TAC Vista, TAC I/A Series

Environment

RPTR-ECH-WW; a wire-wire repeater for use with Echelon NIMs (GCM-ECH-001, GCM-ECH-001, or DMS-ECH-001)

TP/FT-10 LON trunk ( under a UNC, ENC, or LNC-100, for example)

Cause

The RPTR-ECH-WW is for use on a trunk using the Echelon TP/XF-1250 transceiver, which use a different communications protocol than the TP/FT-10 transceiver does. Devices using different transceivers will not communicate with each other.

Resolution

No, the RPTR-ECH-WW cannot be used on a TP/FT-10 LON trunk such as the UNC, ENC, or LNC-100s support.
