Any plug and play systems available? - DeBruynB - 2022-12-06

I had an operational system years ago, but since I moved in 2015 I failed to get it working again. It was also needed to have it hooked up to a pc 24/7. But I want to contribute again with a system that is stand-alone (blue system can do this I think?). But I'm a literal 0 at electronics, so I'm wondering if there is any plug and play systems available or someone who assemble these things for a price? 

Thanks! Smile

Best regards from Belgium.

The BLUE system is about as close to "plug'n'play" as you can get for this network.  Production is delayed due to semiconductor  shortages, etc. Having said that, there are some connectors that must be soldered onto the board, unless kit changes... otherwise the boards are factory constructed.  You still must fabricate, or purchase, H field antennas, an E file probe (very simple) needed cabling, power supply, and have a good quiet location for the H fields, inside or outside, and EM isolated outside location for the E field assembly. This system will never be fully 'plug'n'play', but it will operate with only an a good active internet connection, proper optimization, and access to the controller on your LAN. Location is everything.

Now, older GREEN system operators did have a priority at obtaining replacement systems.  Not sure if that's still true, but you might email EGON directly.

thank you, I’ll try this!
