LIORPT, Lonworks repeater interconnects two Lonworks FT-10 segments
The LIORPT, is a 2 segments FT-10 repeater. This is a low cost option to create large lonworks networks. By interconnecting two FT-10 segments, it overcomes the FT-10 channel limitations such as number of nodes (max 64 per segment) or max cable lenght (500m free topology, 2400m bus topology).
A repeater does not regenerate the packets, meaning that noise will go through a repeater. For large networks or if reliability is a must, consider using a bridge instead. The DLONBridge-FT is plug-and-play as a repetear but understands, verifies and regenerates the lonworks packets signal and timings.
