Installation
Overview
Description
The Advance Network Communications Board DataNET (ANCB/DN)
board plugs into the backplane of an Advance Maxum or Advance
Network Access Unit (NAU) System Controller (SYSCON). All I/O wiring
is made directly to the board. The ANCB/DN functions as a translator for
converting signals and communication protocols. This conversion allows
Advance Maxum GC’s, Advance Network Access Unit (NAU) and
Advance Optichrom GC’s to communicate with each other via an
Advance Maxum DataNET link.
ANCB
Backplane Slot 1
What is DataNET
DataNET is a communications protocol that can be used in place of
Ethernet for connecting all installed Maxum and Advance GC’s. As
compared to Ethernet, DataNET provides true network redundancy at
both the hardware and software levels and uses the existing network
wiring.
The DataNET link can use either copper and/or fiber optic cables. In an
existing Data Hiway installation the Data Hiway cable can be used.

Communications
System
The Advance Communication System (ACS) is a high-speed
communications system that uses TCP / IP protocols and addressing to
interconnect chromatographs and other process analyzers in a common
network. Figure 1-1 shows the Advance DataNET Hub (DNH), Advance
Network Access Unit (NAU) and Advance Network Gateway (ANG)
connected to the ACS. The NAU connects to the ACS and provides a
method to access information coming from Advance process analyzers
including Advance Maxum and Advance Optichrom GC’s. The ANG is
used to connect Siemens’ equipment residing on an Advance Data
Hiway to the ACS.
Advance Optichrom
GC’s
Advance Optichrom Service Panels and older APC workstations can
display Advance Maxum GC information over the Gateway link. They
are, however, limited to only accessing and changing basic operational
status. This data includes alarms, run/hold/calibrate, view, analysis
results etc.

2000592-001
CE Installations
Description
This section should be used for installation sites that must conform to CE
(Conformite Europeene) Certification. Typically, this does not apply to
installations outside the EC unless the equipment was purchased with
the explicit requirements and expectations that it shall conform to EC
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference (EMI/RFI) rejection
specifications.
CE Installation Kit
Available from Siemens is the CE Installation Kit P/N 2020264-001. This
kit has all the parts for all the installations referenced in this section.
Instructions
The following information pertains to CE Installation of General Purpose,
Zone 1 and Division 2 Equipment. For Zone 1 Installations, all cabling is
terminated in the ANG Zone 1 Enclosure.
Installation with Metallic
Conduit
The preferred method is to route the field wiring in metallic conduit. If
metallic conduit is used, unshielded power and the signal wires can be
used. The power and signal wires (DataNET or Ethernet) must be routed
in separate conduit.
Using flexible conduit and/or armored cable is equivalent to using “steel
conduit”. Flexible conduit or armored cable must have its flexible conduit
and/or armoring conductivity 360-degree terminated at its entry to the
enclosure (or bulkhead).
Installation without
Metallic Conduit
If conduit is not used, the following installation practices must be used to
ensure that the CE certification remains valid:
1. A shielded power cord or cable must be used for the input power
wiring. The shield must be terminated at the unit in a 360-degree
termination at the enclosure (bulkhead); use P/N 2015729-001
contained in the CE Installation Kit or an equivalent part. For Zone 1
Installation use P/N 1311001-014 Installation Kit.
2. The DataNET copper cables shields must be terminated in a 360degree termination at the enclosure (or bulkhead; use P/N 2015729001 contained in the CE Installation Kit or an equivalent part). For
Zone 1 Installation, use P/N 13111001-014 Installation Kit.
2000592-001
Installation • 11
CE Installations, Continued
3. A split ferrite filter must be clamped to DataNET copper wire and
fixed immediately to the outside of the unit; use part number
1173000-013 ferrite contained in the CE Installation Kit. This is
required to meet the Conducted Immunity requirement for CE/EMC
Heavy Industrial. All other CE/EMC Heavy Industrial requirements
are met without the use of a ferrite clamp.
4. Shielded Ethernet cable must be used for all Ethernet connections,
in and outside the GC, and coupled through the enclosure using a
shielded RJ-45 coupler; use part number 1183200-003 contained in
the CE Installation Kit. A mounting plate (part number 2020261-001)
is also available to accomplish this. If needed for Zone 1 installation,
part numbers 2017984-001 and 2017985-001 is available to maintain
purge. If a PG gland is used to make the 360-degree termination of
the Ethernet shield at the enclosure, the Installation Kit and other
parts are not required.

Assigning an IP Address
Overview
Each DataNET device must have a unique IP address. This 32-bit
number defines each devices network ID and host ID. The IP address
must be assigned by the user before the unit is network operational.
See Setting Network Address page 30, for instructions on how to enter
the IP address.
IP Address
The IP Address consists of a 32-bit number divided into four 8-bit fields.
Each field is expressed as a decimal number from 1 to 255 with each
field separated by periods. This is referred to as “dotted decimal”
notation. For example, 192.16.9.52 is an IP address.
How to Assign an IP

ANCB Description, Continued
Jumper J2 Settings
The ANCB provides a set of impedance matching jumpers to simplify the
cable interfacing process. Jumper J2 is a six-position header used to
select the proper cable impedance matching circuit for each ANCB
DataNET port. Jumper J2 is logically partitioned into two groups of three
positions, see Figure 4-1. There are two jumpers provided on J2. The
lower jumper configures Port1 and the upper configures Port2. Each
jumper can be placed in one of three positions, see Figure 4-1. The three
positions match cable impedance of 100, 120, and 150 ohms. If the
characteristics of the cable you are using are unknown check with the
cable manufacturer for the resistance setting. The manufacturer’s name
is usually printed on the cable cover.
Connector J5
Connector J5 is the impedance matching jumper for the 10Base2 (BNC)
connector labeled P1 on the ANCB board. The connector is a 2-position
(4-pin) connector. Pin 1 is denoted by a dog-ear that is silk-screened in a
rectangle near J5. The pins are numbered 1 to 4 in the clockwise
direction.
Impedance termination for
Ethernet 10Base2:
End point devices should be terminated with a 50-ohm resistor.
Devices that are not on the end point require no termination resistors.
When the 10Base2 connector is not in use (i.e. no cable connected) the
connector should be terminated with a 25-ohm resistor to prevent
spurious errors from being generated on the 10BaseT connector. This is
necessary since both the 10Base2 and 10BaseT connectors are
connected to the same Ethernet Hub chip on the ANCB board.

ANCB LEDs Description and Operation
Description
This section provides maintenance personnel with information on how to
use the ANCB LEDs for troubleshooting the Advance Network
Communications Board.
Communications
Board LEDs
Refer to Figure 4-2 for LED position and labeling.
Power-UP
At power-up the top row of LED indicators will blink on briefly as the
board passes its various power-up sequence tests. The ADHA green
light indicates that the initial program parameters were successfully
moved from FLASH to RAM memory. The ADHA yellow LED indicates
that the board has passed its power-up RAM test, the ADHA red LED
indicates that the board has passed its power-up FLASH integrity test,
and the ADHB green LED indicates the board has begun its normal
program execution. After approximately 5 seconds the indicators will go
off depending upon the current board conditions.
Normal Operation
In normal board operation the ADHA LED’s are used to indicate the
status of the Data Hiway channel and the DNETB LED’s indicate the
status of the DataNET channel. In normal operation the ADHA green
LED blinks to indicate either transmit or receive activity has occurred on
the Data Hiway channel. The yellow LED will blink to indicate any
transmit or receive errors that have occurred.
The DNETB LED’s provide a link status indication for the DataNET
channel. If the DataNET link is up and communicating the DNETB green
LED will be lit. If the link is down or in the process of establishing a
connection the DNETB red LED will be lit.
Board Fault Indicators
2000592-001
If the ANG/DN board has a power-up failure or other catastrophic failure
during normal operation the red Fault LED will light to indicate that a fault
has occurred and the yellow LED will blink an error code, see Table 3-1
Error Codes.

ANCB Ethernet
Controller LEDs
Each ANCB provides two Ethernet ports a 10BaseT and 10Base2. Each
port is connected directly to an onboard Ethernet hub. The three LED’s
labeled HUB in figure 4-2 (CL, BNC, TP) is the status indicator for this
internal hub. The Hub LED’s are bi-colored LEDs and require careful
observation of both the color and blink rate to determine the device
status. Table 4-1 describes the color and blink rate to determine device
and port status.
The on-board Ethernet controller provides four status LED’s in Figure
4-2. (Tx, Rx, CL, JAB) The Green TX LED blinks whenever a message is
transmitted on the Ethernet channel. The Green RX LED blinks
whenever a message is received on the Ethernet channel. The Red CL
LED indicates there was a collision on the Ethernet. Note: collisions are
a normal occurrence on an Ethernet network. However, excessive
collision’s can be indication of a potential problem on the Ethernet. The
Red JAB LED indicates that the Ethernet controller has determined that
the transmitter has remained on for longer than allowed and indicates a
possible hardware failure.

DataNET Troubleshooting Guide
Instructions
If a DataNET communications link fails to establish check for a:
•
configuration conflict,
•
link signal quality problem.
Configuration
Conflicts
If the ANCB_DN port DNETA or DNETB LED is never green, or
intermittently flashes between green and red, a configuration conflict
exists. Configuration conflicts can be caused by cabling or improper
software configuration parameters.
Cable Connected to
Wrong Hub or Port
Verify that the Channel A DataNET link is connected to the A Hub half
and that the Channel B DataNET link is connected to the B Hub half.
Verify that both Channels A & B utilize the same port number on their
respective Hub half. Then display the Port Status screen by connecting a
PC to the Configuration Port, logging in, and typing display links. Verify
that the two Ports are connected as expected.
Example
The following example shows that port #1 (DataNET Channel A) is
connected to the DataNET Hub whose IP address is 172.016.099.003 on
port #4, Hub half A and port #2 (DataNET Channel B) is also connected
to the DataNET Hub whose IP address is 172.016.099.003 on port #4,
Hub half B.

Signal Quality
Problems
If the ANCB_DN port LED is never green, or intermittently flashes
between green and red, there may be a signal quality problem. Signal
levels should be examined to determine if a particular port has a signal
too large or too small relative to the other ports on the HUB. If a link fails
to connect at all, place the port in a test mode which will cause activity to
occur every ~50 milliseconds instead of every ~5 seconds as on an
unconnected link.
Placing Unit in Test Mode
To place the unit in a test mode use the CLI commands to take the link
offline (port stop n) and initiate the test mode (test n). At this time, an
oscilloscope may be taken to the site of the slave device and connected
to monitor the signal. The signal received at the slave should be between
~0.75 v p-p and 5 v p-p. A signal smaller than ~0.75 v p-p is generally
not adequate. The impedance matching jumpers can be changed to
correct some signal level issues.
If the condition of excessive signal loss can not be corrected by jumper
settings, it may indicate inadequate cable properties (i.e. too long or
wrong type of cable).
The port can be taken off test mode and put back to normal operation
with the “test off” and “port start n” commands.

Glossary
Definitions
Overview
This section defines important Terms.
Advance Network
Gateway Ethernet
The Advance Network Gateway Ethernet (ANG_EN) is a wall- (or rack-)
mounted unit that is self-contained with power supply and all electronics.
It provides internal field termination points to connect standard Advance
Data Hiway cable “on one side” and Ethernet 10BaseT cabling
(Unshielded Twisted Pair) “on the other side”. The Gateway unit requires
120 VAC power wired directly to it.
Ethernet
A data link level protocol comprising the OSI model’s bottom two layers.
It is a broadcast networking technology that can use several different
physical media, including twisted-pair cable and coaxial cable. Ethernet
usually used CSMA/CD. TCP/IP is commonly used with Ethernet
networks.
Collisions
The result of two or more LAN stations attempting to use the same
transmission medium at the same time. Collisions are a normal
occurrence on Ethernet. A properly functioning Ethernet will experience a
relative small percentage of collisions. Typically the collision rate should
be less than 5% of the available bandwidth. Most collisions occur during
the preamble portion of the frame. Most Ethernet controllers
automatically retry, up to 15 times, any packet that has a collision during
transmission. (Except for Late Collisions)
CRC - Cyclic
Redundancy Check
CRC is a method to detect errors. A number is derived from the data that
will be transmitted. By recalculating the CRC at the remote end and
comparing it to the value originally transmitted, the receiving node can
detect errors.
DataNET
The name “DataNET” is used to mean the high-speed communication
system inclusive of our application software.
Data Hiway
The term “Data Hiway” refers to the Advance Optichrom Network. The
Advance Network Gateway and DataNET Gateway are used to bridge
the Advance Optichrom network and the Advance DataNET network.
2000592-001
Glossary • 57
Definitions, Continued
Late Collision
A Late Collision is one that occurs after the first 64 bytes in a frame or
packet. Since the smallest Ethernet frame (packet) is 64 bytes in length,
late collisions will not be detected on small packets. Ethernet controllers
do not retransmit packets with late collisions resulting in lost packets.
Late Collisions usually appear as a bad FCS frame. The only time a late
collision can be detected on a 10BaseT network is when the detecting
device is transmitting at the same time.
FCS - Frame Check
Sequence Error
The CRC (Cycle Redundancy Check) remainder transmitted at the end
of a frame. A FCS error is a legal sized Ethernet frame with a bad frame
check sequence.
Ghosts
Ghosts are energy on the cable that appears to be a frame, but does not
have a valid beginning of frame pattern (start delimiter 10101011).
Ground loops and other wiring problems cause some repeaters to
believe that a frame is being received. Since the repeater is only reacting
to an AC voltage riding on the cable, there is not a valid frame to pass
along. The repeater, however, transmits this energy along the network.
This may be a jam pattern or a very long preamble. Ghosts events
consume bandwidth and can slow down a network. Ghosts are the result
of network elements reacting to noise. The effect of noise on network
wiring is indeterminate. Some network devices will react while others will
not. Ghosts cause random events and can be hard to correct.
Jabber
The term Jabber refers to an Ethernet frame that is greater than the
maximum legal size (Greater than 1518 bytes). Many 10BaseT HUBS
will partition a port that is jabbering.
