PLS-DC1

Used to connect and control all neighborhood NC1 nodes distributed on three phases of the local low voltage power grid. Range between DC1 and the first NC1 node can be up to  3 miles.

Secure HTTPS (TLS) communications on all of the available communications channels : Ethernet, WiFi and LTE. Simple set up allows the unit to be either on a completely independent local network (using Ethernet), be mounted in a remote location and use the built in LTE modem or use the built in WiFi modem to connect to the local network.
