Instant Information

Packet Power's network integration solutions make monitoring data accessible to your Building Management Systems, Data Center Infrastructure Management system, EMX Energy Portal, and even between different enterprises.

Once installed, they make ongoing network management easy by helping manage complex tasks such as security, protocol conversion and firmware upgrades.

Network Integration Solutions

Packet Power Network Integration solutions overview

Packet Power's network integration solutions easily and securely connect monitoring data to your network. 

Ethernet Gateways make data from Packet Power monitors accessible to your BMS, DCIM or EMX Energy Portal. 

Hubs gather data from non-Packet Power monitoring devices over a wired network for use in the EMX Energy Portal.

Wireless Network Connectors (WNC) connect supported non-Packet Power monitoring devices to Packet Power's wireless network. 

Data Diodes enable sharing data gathered from Gateways and Hubs between two unrelated IP networks via a secure one-way link.


Ethernet Gateways provide access to the readings captured by Packet Power’s wireless monitoring devices and WNCs. Every location with a wireless monitoring network needs at least one Gateway, and as the size of your network grows Gateways can be added to maintain suitable network performance. Gateways make monitoring data available to BMS and DCIM systems using standard protocols such as SNMP, Modbus, Ethernet/IP and MTConnect.

Gateway Models

Small or Large Deployments

Small site models support 30 or fewer monitoring units per Gateway and standard models support up to 100 monitoring units.

Protocol Conversion

 BMS and DCIM applications can access data from Gateways using standard protocols such as SNMP, Modbus TCP/IP, MTConnect and Ethernet/IP. 

Gateway Benefits

Feature Icon
Add a Gateway to easily maintain consistent performance when growing your monitoring network
Enables a large monitoring network to use only a few IP addresses
Supports advanced IP network security
Mesh network protocol allows flexibility where Gateways are placed

Gateway Features

Automatically joins the mesh network and assumes its share of network traffic
Offers advanced integration features for SNMP, Modbus, Ethernet/IP and MTConnect
Supports up 100 monitoring units
Feature Image
Preserves energy data in the event of power loss
One button set up of IP addresses
Sophisticated capability for panel mapping
Provides detailed information on network activity via the Gateway console

Bracket supports standalone mounting or standard DIN rail, cable ties, or adhesive pads


Hubs connect non­-Packet Power monitoring devices to the EMX Energy Portal. This allows companies using EMX to gain insights into energy usage from nearly any device that can support standard SNMP or Modbus protocols.

Packet Power Hub

Hub Models

Hub (TP) with SNMP devices


Feeds data from SNMP devices to EMX.

Hub (TP) with Modbus devices

Modbus Hub

Feeds data from Modbus TCP/IP devices to EMX. Data from
serial Modbus devices can usually be accessed via a
serial­-to-­TCP/IP converter.

Hub Benefits

Easily gathers data from nearly any device that supports SNMP or Modbus protocols
Feature Image
Supports local or cloud­-based EMX systems
Gathers data from thousands of monitoring points per site
Data mapping tools and services are available to support new or customized devices

Hub Features

Wireless Network Connector

Packet Power's Wireless Network Connector provides an easy way to make select non-Packet Power metered devices that aren't connected to a network work over Packet Power's wireless network.

Plug the Wireless Network Connector into the Ethernet or serial port of a supported device and data will automatically flow across the wireless network. Use an Ethernet Gateway to make data accessible to your BMS or the EMX Energy Portal.

Wireless Network Connector Benefits

No need for data comm wiring
Instantly connects to Packet Power's self-configuring, self-optimizing wireless mesh network
Local LCD immediately verifies correct operation

Wireless Network Connector Features

Auto-detects select devices from APC, Geist, Janitza, Liebert (Vertiv), RLE, Sage, Schneider and Servertech
Supports up to 2 optional temperature probes
Packet Power WNC can be easily mounted
Can be mounted with a low profile bracket, via a DIN rail clip, or by optional magnet
Packet Power WNC works with most outlets
External 100-240V power supply works with most outlet types including C13; some power strips can power the WNC directly from USB or other ports

Data Diode

Packet Power's Data Diode allows one-way secure transfer of monitoring data between two isolated IP networks via a unidirectional encrypted fiber optical link. 

This enables a colocation services provider to easily share real-time monitoring data for use in an end customer's monitoring application. And Data Diode securely allows data from an isolated network to be sent to a cloud-based monitoring service such as Packet Power's EMX Energy Portal.
