Grounding the Device Server

Wiring considerations

Device server grounding

WARNING

Be sure to disconnect power before installing and wiring the Device Server. Failure to observe this warning could result in an electrical shock.

The following wiring considerations are recommended:

Use separate paths to route wiring for power and device data cables. If power wiring and device data cables must cross make sure that the wires are perpendicular at the intersection point.

Do not run signal or communications wiring and power wiring in the same wire conduit. To avoid interference, wires with different signal characteristics route separately.

Use the type of signal transmitted through a wire to determine which wires should be kept separate. The rule of thumb is wiring that shares similar electrical characteristics can be bundled together.

Keep input and output wiring separated.

Label the wiring to all devices in the system for clarity.

CAUTION

The Device Server must be mounted to a well-grounded surface. Failure to observe this caution could result in EMI problems.

The Device Server can eliminate the effects of noise due to electromagnetic interference (EMI) via proper grounding. Always run the ground connection from the ground screw to a grounding surface before connecting DC power. See Figure 5.

Connecting power to the Device Server

Redundant Dual (redundant) power inputs can be connected simultaneously to live DC power power sources. See Figure 6. If one power source fails, the other live source acts as a

backup, and automatically supplies the Device Server with power.

Figure 6: Redundant Power Connections

IMPORTANT

Power is supplied through an external DC power source. Check the Technical Specification section for information about the DC power input voltage.

The Device Server does not include a power switch; therefore, plugging a wired and active terminal-block plug into its terminal block will immediately power UP the unit.

Description

Server/Client Type

Defines whether the Device Server is acting as a

 

server or a client. In Device Server Mode, this

 

setting will always be Server. In Converter Mode,

 

this setting can be either Server or Client.

Remote IP

In Converter Mode, enter the IP address of the

 

remote device. This field is NOT USED in Device

 

Server Mode.

TCP Port Number

Device Server mode (DS): the TCP port number is

 

the number that the Device Server uses to listen for

 

connections; also, other devices must use this port

 

to contact the Device Server.

 

Converter mode: both converters use the TCP port

 

number to communicate with the host.

Connection Idle Time

This setting only applies to Converter Mode. The

 

time value (in seconds) is the maximum time that

 

the TCP port will remain open with no activity.

 

Once the time value is reached, the Device server

 

closes the port to prevent the port from remaining

 

open indefinitely. This field is NOT USED in

 

Device Server mode.

DS/CR Modes

Device server (DS) mode, also know as TCP/IP

 

mode, is used to connect a serial device to a host via

 

an Ethernet network. This mode allows using an

 

existing COM-port-based software platform across

 

an existing Ethernet LAN. See Figure 22.

Serial IP redirect software description

COM port

The Serial/IP Redirector Software adds "virtual" COM ports to Windows operating

usage

systems. Similar to regular COM ports that allow PC applications to use local serial

 

ports, Serial/IP COM ports allow PC applications to use the serial port on the Device

 

Server. Because Serial/IP COM ports work like regular COM ports, PC applications

 

do not have to be changed to use the Device Server through the Serial/IP Redirector.

Operating

 

The Serial/IP Redirector software runs as a kernel-level device driver in the

environment

Windows operating system. This means that Serial/IP COM ports are available to PC

 

applications at all times, even if no user is logged in. The Serial/IP Redirector is a

 

high-performance kernel-mode driver with a small “footprint,” modest memory

 

requirements and low overhead. The Serial/IP applet in the Windows control panel

 

configures Serial/IP COM ports and displays their activity.

Configuration

 

The Serial/IP Redirector software detects and uses the specific protocol supported by

wizard

the Device Server. When configuring Serial/IP COM port, use the Serial/IP

 

Configuration Wizard to verify immediately that the Serial/IP Redirector can

 

communicate with the Device Server over the network.

Networked The networked pieces fit together in the following manner: device server

 

Stage

Description

 

A.

Install the Device Server on the network and connect a device to its serial

 

 

port.

 

B.

Configure the Device Server so that its serial port is available to the

 

 

network via TCP/IP.

 

C.

Install the Serial/IP Redirector software on the PC that will use the device

 

 

attached to the Device Server.

 

D.

Configure the Serial/IP Redirector software to create a virtual COM port.

 

E.

Specify the IP address of a Device Server and the TCP port number that

 

 

provides access to its serial port.

 

F.

In the PC application, change settings to use the Serial/IP COM port

 

 

instead of the local COM port.

 

G.

Thereafter, the PC application can use the serial port on the Device Server

 

 

instead of local serial ports.

Getting started and software pre-installations considerations

Pre-installation

Supported platforms:

considerations

Intel-compatible PCs with 32-bit Pentium-class processor

 

At least 4 megabytes free space on the boot drive

 

Windows XP sp1 or sp2, Server 2003, 2000, NT 4.0 sp6, 98/95/Me, Microsoft

 

.NT/2000/2003 Terminal Server, Citrix MetaFrame Access Suite

 

VMware

Software requirements:

Windows Installer 2.0 or later: This software is included in Windows XP and later, and is available for NT 4.0, 2000 and 95 from the Microsoft Download Center. It is also available for Windows 98 in Internet Explorer 5.5

Internet Explorer 4.0 or later (version 5.5 or later for Windows 98)

For Windows 95: Microsoft Windows Socket 2 update Network requirements:

A TCP/IP network connection from the local computer to the serial Device Server.

The throughput and performance of the network connection must exceed the requirements of the application in total. (An Ethernet local area network will easily meet this requirement.)

If firewalls are in the network path to the serial Device Server, they must allow TCP connections to the server on the TCP port number(s) on which the server provides its devices. If used, this includes Windows XP service-pack 2 firewall.
