Product Description

The modular Global Caché Global Connect is the newest high performance family of connectivity products. Global Connect is the next generation for IP connectivity and control. The Global Connect is comprised of three elements: the chassis, the number of slots per chassis, and installed modules. Global Connect features individual IP addresses for each module with individual web pages for easy configuration, advanced addressability, and backward compatibility to current Global Caché hardware.

The Global Connect uses an online web tool to configure settings for each installed module. Download and run Global Caché's iHelp program to configure the Global Connect. The program will detect the individual IP addresses for each of the modules installed. Select the module you wish to adjust settings for and apply the relevant changes.

This Global Connect G7 Model includes PoE, (2) Serial, IR, and CC Relay Modules.
