Description: Low Range Ethernet to WiFi Bridge
Connections: Ethernet, USB
This Ethernet to Wifi Bridge allows you to connect your EKM Push communication system to your existing wireless WiFi network. This prevents you from needing to route an Ethernet cable between your internet router and EKM Push gateway.
Requires either a PC or Mac computer with a Ethernet port to set up. Once the WiFi bridge is connected to your computer over ethernet, you can set it up via a web browser by going to http://vonets.cfg (instructions are included)
We offer this product as a convenience for our Push customers. Please only purchase the Ethernet to Wifi Bridge if you are also purchasing our EKM Push communication system as well. We also want to downplay the range of this device, if range is at all a consideration (over 20 ft), please use a long range WiFi Bridge or Internet Access Point from a computer supplier.
Has an RJ45 Ethernet connector that connects to the Ethernet socket on the EKM Push. The USB connection is only used to power the device. The WiFi bridge can also be powered using a low voltage power adapter, which connects to the barrel jack on bridge.
First connect the Ethernet port to your PC or Mac and power up the WiFi Bridge. Change settings within the WiFi bridge to give it access to your existing WiFi network (network name and password). Then connect the WiFi Bridge to your EKM Push
The Wifi Bridge only works with the EKM Push, it does NOT work with the EKM-iSerial. It also does not come with a low voltage power adapter. However, we provide a splitter so you can power the Wifi Bridge with the same power adapter that is provided with the EKM Push.

But it would be nice to use WIFI. Can I use the USB converter and go directly to my PC and then your software talks directly to the meter counting pulses?
Or do I have to have the EKM Push and your software talks directly to it? Is there a document on line that explains all this?1 answersQ:Can I send information in the meter via my powerline network?1 answersQ:Can I plug the EKM Ethernet to WiFi Bridge into a EKM RS-485-to-USB converter which is connected to the EKM Omnimeter Pulse v.4 thus mitigating the need for the EKM Push Communication System?1 answersLoading...
