Simply Automated UPB 3-Phase Repeater & Programmer Module
Communicate With Your UPB System Across Multiple Powerlines
The Simply Automated 3-Phase Repeater (model UTR) is specifically designed to repeat a UPB message onto each 120 V electrical phase of a standard (120 VAC phase to neutral) 3-Phase AC powerline where the phases are separated by 120° .
The Repeater is capable of receiving a UPB message on one of the AC electrical phases and repeating it onto all three AC electrical phases. This is ideal for building lighting controls, gymnasiums, churches and auditoriums, and other larger facilities that include multiple electrical phases.
The Repeater is designed to work in a UPB lighting system consisting of switches, dimmers and other UPB devices. It can be used to repeat UPB messages received from one of these devices onto every phase of the powerline.
The 3-Phase Repeater also provides a RS-232 serial interface that can be used to transmit and receive UPB messages from a host computer or home automation controller. The UTR may be used as a Computer Interface Module (CIM) to configure all UPB devices. By comparison, a plug-in CIM can only configure devices one phase at a time and will only communicate to devices on the same phase in a 3-phase system.
The UTR will not repeat messages from a standard computer/powerline interface module connected on one phase. For a host controller needs to control devices on more than one phase, connect it to the UTR via RS232 serial and use UPStart software to configure the UTR to repeat UPB signals. Once the devices are configured, they transmit Repeater messages on all phases.
