CCU-721 Gateway

CCU-721_220.jpg

The CCU-721 carrier control unit acts as a gateway to Cooper Power Systems power line communications and offers advanced communication algorithms. The CCU-721 carrier control unit is linked to the master station by a dedicated voice grade communications line. Coax cable assemblies are used to couple the distribution bus to the primary coupling assemblies.

The carrier control unit directs communications initiated from the master station to Cooper Power Systems power line communications devices. It can also operate in a stand-alone mode for time synchronizations. The CCU-721 carrier control unit uses an expanded protocol (IDLC) which can coexist on a channel with properly configured SCADA RTUs.
