What are the advantages of using LAN devices to network my panels?

Lux Intelligent panels can be connected to their own network by installing dedicated network cabling between the panels.  However, the cost of doing this can be high.

Connecting the Lux Intelligent panels to the local area network on a site provides the most cost effective means of been able to access all panels from anywhere across the installation.  It does not require any special cable routing, and can be accomplished by plugging the LAN device into the nearest LAN connection point via a standard ethernet cable. This means there is no limit to distance between panels. 

The panel then connected in turn to the LAN network via a serial to Ethernet converter, available as part of the Lux Intelligent range of support peripherals.
