U60 FT USB Network Interface Module

Board-level USB interface for LON FT networks for any edge server, gateway, controller or device
U60 FT USB Network Interface Module

The U60 FT USB network interface module enables a controller or computer to communicate with LON and IzoT networks via USB. The compact boards include network and USB pin headers that can be easily integrated into any controller or device.

The U60 is an interface to LON/IP-FT and LON-FT and is compatible with OpenLDV 5 and with hosts implementing the LON/IP stack which provides source code for LON/IP and LON compatible protocol stacks.

The interface facilitates communication to everyday devices like pumps, motors, valves, sensors, actuators and lights for process control, building automation, energy management, transportation systems control and telecommunications equipment management.

Tx and Rx signals provide an indication of LON packet transmission and reception and a service signal communicates device status to the host via the USB interface enabling the host controller to provide status indicators. Optional on-board Tx, Rx and service LED indicators are available.
