2. RS485 CONNECTION
To be connected to the serial line all the Dixell Modbus instruments must be
provided with direct RS485 terminals or the “TTL”-RS485 interface (XJRS485 or
XJ485). Check the instrument manuals for more information. The RS485 line is
mainly based on two polarised terminals. Please pay respect to the right
sequence for all the devices connected to the serial line.
Follow these important instructions:
The RS485 serial line must reach all the instruments where they are installed.
Make sure of the wire polarities when screwing them into the instrument
terminals.
The cable must have 2 or 3 wires with shield, minimum section 0,5mm2 (eg. the
BELDEN 8772).
From the XWEB 500 position the cable reaches all the instrument positions.
Do not execute loops or derivations:

Wrong connection
Always keep the serial cable away from power cables.
Always keep the serial cable away from Electro-magnetic or frequency sources.
Do not connect shield to ground.
Do not connect the “Gnd (ground)” terminal.
Remember to draw a map of the line. This will help you to find errors if
something is wrong.
The instrument with RS485 have “+” and “-“ terminals, respect the polarity.
To keep the line balanced it is necessary a 100 Ohm resistor at the end of the
line (you can use the RS 485+ and RS 485- terminals of the last instrument
connected).

The TTL output
The instrument with RS485 on board does not need any kind of external
interface module. For instruments with an external interface: keep the TTL
cable away from power cables or frequency sources.
The XJ485 external interface must be connected with a TTL cable to the
instrument with TTL compatibility.
Serial address of the instruments
Each instrument must be defined by its unique address.
Check the address into the Adr parameter value of each instruments. Take
reference to the instruction manual of the instrument itself to find the right
procedure to enter the programming and set the value.
The easiest way to work with the category functions is to set the addresses
progressively for similar groups of instruments which have the same
application.

3. MODEM CONNECTION (“or point to point
connection”)
It represents the most common method where the LAN (intranet / Ethernet /
internet) is not available.
It is strongly advised to use a dedicated telephone line.
IMPORTANT: Use exclusively modem devices approved by Dixell.
Remember that many modems are not compatible with Linux.
The list of compatible models can be found under the menu: Configuration –
System - Modem.
In Windows XP, you will use the "New Connection Wizard".
1. From the Start menu, select Control Panel.

4. INTRANET/ETHERNET CONNECTION
The Intranet or Ethernet connection should be initially managed by the net
administrator which will assign one free IP address to reach the Server. This
number is an example of what you should expect:
http://192.168.000.111.
After receiving the address from your network Administrator the XWEB 500
must be set with this number.
The Intranet method allows the connection to interact with XWEB 500 from all
the PC Clients. Insert the net address assigned by the administrator into the
Browser address bar. Bookmark the address with personalised name for the
future connections.

5. INTERNET CONNECTION
It is necessary to have a STATIC IP address for the XWEB 500 which is normally
assigned by the Provider of your internet services (ISP).
The Internet connection allows XWEB to be reached from all PC-clients. Insert
the net address assigned by the administrator into the Browser address bar.
Bookmark the address with personalised name for the future connections.
Ask your provider for more details about the rent of a the static IP.
This the internet system requirements for the best result:
Wide band connection
At least 1 static IP address for the XWEB.
The internet connection is established through a device called Router that
receives and sends the data as interface between an Intranet and Internet. The
Provider also assigns the address of the router that is called IP WAN.
Remember that the default value of the IP of the XWEB is: 192.168.0.150.
Depending on the contract the Provider can also supply the router, otherwise
the user can buy it separately.

ALWAYS: ask qualified personnel for the router installation by using this
information.
Used ports that are mapped to the LAN side:
80 (used for the HTTP access)
22 (used for SSH connection)
While the ports on the WAN side are:
Telnet (to configure the router from a remote, also via Internet).
HTTP (To access the XWEB 500).
If working with the router GATEWAY and DNS check your Internet contract
details. Depending on your network topology you may need a reverse NAT on
port 80. It is not enough to link port 80 on the router side to port 80 on
intranet side. Some firewall or Router need also the reverse NAT.
