What are common things that prevent reliable DH+ communications on the AN-X(2)-AB-DHRIO gateway running the DH+ Bridge FW?

If the NS or NET LED is not solid green then check the recommendations below: 1) For networks running at 57k6 or 115k2 bauds it is necessary to have 150 ohm resistors on each end of the network (for 230k4 use 82 ohm resistors) 2) Ensure that at least 10' or 3 meters of cable is u...

How many Data Highway Plus Nodes can a single AN-X2-AB-DHRIO communicate with?

The AN-X2-AB-DHRIO's Data Highway Plus firmware does not have a specific limit on the number of nodes it can communicate with (beyond the inherent limits of the DH+ protocol itself), however, be aware that DH+ is a serial based token passing protocol, and thus there will be signi...
