Data Diode Tx and Rx
Data Diode

Enables secure one-way transfer of  monitoring data between two isolated IP networks

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 TCP/IP, Bacnet/IP and MQTT.

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, Bacnet/IP and MQTT

Gateway Benefits


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 TCP/IP, Bacnet/IP and MQTT


Supports up 100 monitoring units


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


Shows IP address on the LCD


Drives firmware upgrades over the wireless network


Communicates on 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz frequencies


Small size (76mm x 94mm x 31mm) and low energy use


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.

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


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


One ­button set up of IP addresses


Small size and low energy use


Local LCD

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


Can be mounted with a low profile bracket, via a DIN rail clip, or by optional magnet


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.

Data Diode full network

Data Diode Components


  • Gathers data from specified monitoring units

  • Uses an AES-256 encryption key for security


  • Requires the same encryption key to receive data
  • Data can be accessed using SNMP, Modbus TCP/IP, Bacnet/IP and MQTT protocols

Optical Link

  • Unidirectional fiber optical cable with USB interfaces
  • 3- or 10-meter cable lengths available

Data Diode Benefits


Allows colocation services providers to easily share specific monitoring data for use in their end customer's monitoring application


Securely allows data from an isolated network to be sent to a cloud-based monitoring service

Data Diode Features


Hardware-based unidirectional link makes it physically impossible for data to flow in the other direction


Collect monitoring data from up to six Packet Power Ethernet Gateways (V3 or V4)


Uses an AES-256 encryption key for security


Data can be accessed using Modbus TCP/IP, SNMP, Bacnet/IP, or MQTT as well as EMX
