Liebert IntelliSlot Unity Communications Interface Card​

Liebert IntelliSlot Unity Communications Interface Card provides Trellis, LIFE Services and Liebert Nform enablement as well as Web access, environmental sensor data, and third-party customer protocols for Emerson Network Power equipment. The cards employ Ethernet and RS-485 networks to monitor and manage a wide range of operating parameters, alarms and notifications.
Overview

The Liebert IntelliSlot™ Unity communications platform is the next generation of communications interface enhancing the enablement of Emerson software tools and services, including Trellis™, Liebert Nform, and LIFE™ Services, as well as third-party customer protocols for Emerson Network Power equipment. Environmental monitoring for the equipment is available using Liebert SN integrated and modular sensors connected to the Unity card. Unity cards deliver Web, LIFE Technology, Emerson Protocol, SNMP, BACnet IP/MSTP, Modbus TCP/RTU, YDN23, Email, Text Messaging, and Telnet communication and control capabilities for Liebert Power and Thermal Management equipment. The Unity cards will eventually replace many of the existing Web and 485 cards to simplify ordering, delivery, and configuration. The platform supports 10/100 Mbit Ethernet, IPv4 and IPv6, HTTP/HTTPS for device webpage access, Emerson Protocol for communicating with Trellis and Nform software applications, and LIFE Technology for supporting Remote Service Delivery applications. Third-party protocols (Modbus/IP, BACnet/IP, Modbus/485, and SNMP v1/v2c/v3)(Modbus TCP, BACnet IP, Modbus RTU, BACnet MSTP, SNMP v1/v2c/v3, and YDN23) are also supported for building management and network management applications.

There are two cards that make up the Unity communications platform, IS-UNITY-DP, and IS-UNITY-LIFE. Both cards provide web access to the device, support LIFE Technology for enabling remote service delivery, and Emerson Protocol for enabling Trellis and Nform management applications. In addition, the IS-UNITY-DP card supports third-party protocols. The IS-UNITY-LIFE card provides the Emerson protocol and LIFE Technology enablement without third-party protocol support. The IS-UNITY-LIFE card cannot be ordered. It is provided to customers free of charge as part of a Remote Service Delivery contract, to support an Emerson Management software application, or factory installed in products ordered without third-party protocol support to enable LIFE Technology support under the warranty period.

Unity cards provide Liebert SN sensor data via the Web and SNMP. Environmental monitoring is available for Temperature, Humidity, Door, Contact Closure, and Leak Detection with all supported equipment.
