It is a special Power Line Interface Module containing a built-in M1XSP Serial Port chip. This all-in-one device makes it easy to permanently connect the ELK M1 Control to a UPB network. Simply locate a convenient unused AC Power Outlet, connect a cable from the M1 data bus to the four (4) terminals on the PIM-E, and perform an M1 data bus enrollment. The long distance capability of the M1 data bus makes it possible to locate the PIM-E virtually anywhere, without a lot of complex or ugly cabling or connections. UPB utilizes the AC wiring circuit for transmission, without new or additional wiring, and without radio frequency signals.
All-in-one device for interfacing M1 with UPB.
Compact interface requires small amount of space
Easy hookup -- requires only the 4-wire data bus connection.
