MTU without ECC?
« on: August 02, 2015, 02:21:14 AM »
Hi. I have an old unused TED5000. Now I discovered the TED Pro, and would like to know if I can just buy an MTU and CTs, and not buy the ECC, and handle all the logging myself. I'm an expert software developer and have a background in electrical engineering. I'm very familiar with general network protocols and modern communications methodologies (e.g. REST, TCP connections, etc.). Does TED publish enough information to make an MTU work without the ECC? I'll be monitoring multiple locations, and would like to have the MTUs post data to a server I set up, and I'd like to bypass the ECC altogether.

Thanks,
Rick

AFAIK, TED doesn't publish any information about the communication protocols used between the ECC and the MTU(s) - I believe that the communication is two-way, BTW. I think that you would have to be a masochist and value your time very cheaply to try to do without an ECC.
