1 GENERAL INFORM ATION
XWEB is a Controlling and Monitoring system based on “WEB server” technology. In this document we can
refer to XWEB as ‘server’. It is capable to communicate data to one external Client with the same kind of
procedure used by the Internet Web Sites. Client need only a standard Browser such as Microsoft
Explorer.
The Web Pages with all the information are contained into the server itself; Linux operative system ensures
maximum efficiency and security.
The server reads, logs and checks the data coming from the Dixell instruments connected to a RS485 line.
The communication protocol is the Modbus-Rtu. The XWEB is capable of recognising also most of the
Modbus-Rtu compatible instruments not manufactured by Dixell.
ATTENTION: Always check the proper RS485 connections (see 2.1.1 rs485)
ATTENTION: Dixell S.r.l. reserves itself the right to analyse the Modbus-RTU compatibility of other
manufacturer’s devices before ensuring their integration into XWEB system.
Clients to Server connection possibility (PC—XWEB)



Modem: point to point through local and remote modem devices (“Creating a Remote Access under
Windows”);
Intranet / Internet: where available a static IP, using the standard socket 10 Base-T with RJ45
connector.
Cross over Ethernet cable: You can plug a bridge network cable into RJ45 socket of XWEB and on the
other side into your PC network adapter. Ask your network administrator to properly setup your PC to be
able to access XWEB web pages.
The User interface is defined by the Browser program and it is the same for all kind of connections.
The PC-client needs only a standard Browser, there is no need to install any kind of software
Some pages created by the web server rely on Java and they need the Java Virtual Machine program that is
normally installed in the latest Browsers and operative systems.
Features and functions included into the XWEB management:





Data monitoring and recording, alarm detection and recording of the instrument connected.
Alarm management defined by the User with visible signals (onboard led), or relay switching or remote
transmission via Fax, E-mail or sms.
Interactive commands to manage the connected instruments.
Parameter table programming.
Graphic or table viewing and printing of the recorded data.

2.1.1 RS485
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 beware to respect the right sequence for
all the devices connected to the serial line.
Follow these important advises:
 The RS485 serial line must reach all the instruments where they are installed.
 Beware to the wire polarities when screwing them into the instrument terminals.

XWEB500/300
12/114
2.1.2 SERIAL ADDRESS



The cable must have 2 or 3 wires with shield, minimum section 0,5mm2 (e.g. the BELDEN 8772).
From the XWEB position the cable reaches all the instrument positions.
Do not execute loops or derivations:
Right connection
Wrong connection





Do not connect shield to ground.
Do not connect the “Gnd” terminal.
Remember to draw a map of the line. This will help you to find an error if something is wrong.
The instrument with RS485 have “+” and “-“ terminals, respect the polarity.
To keep the line balanced it is necessary a 120 Ohm resistor at the end of the line (you can use the RS
485+ and RS 485- terminals of the last instrument connected).
2.1.3 THE TTL OUTPUT
1592028000 XWEB300D_500_500D opr GB r2.2.0 2013.08.01.docx
XWEB500/300
13/114



The instrument with RS485 on board do not need any kind of external interface module.
For instruments with external interface: keep the TTL cable away from power cables or frequency
sources.
The XJ485 external interface must be connected with TTL cable to the instrument with TTL compatibility.
2.1.4 SERIAL ADDRESS OF THE INSTRUMENTS



Each instrument must be defined by its unique address.
Check the address into the Adr parameter value. 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.
2.1.5 TERMINATION RESISTOR
To keep balanced the RS485 the beginning and the end of line must be closed with a resistor of 120Ω. If
XWEB is placed at the beginning or at the end of the line, please active its termination resistor by adding
a jumper in position 2 (JMP2 on the back side of the unit). DO NOT add the jumper if XWEB is placed in
the middle of the RS485 line.
2.1.6 COMPATIBLE INSTRUMENTS
For a complete list please read Appendix C.
2.1.6.1



PARTICULAR DEVICE SETUP
All controllers equipped with 2 serial addresses (XC400/600/800/900, XH200/300/400 etc.) must be used
with both addresses equal.
iCHILLs need to activate a particular value in the “Advanced” section. User must check “Force Device
On status”. Remember to stop-start acquisition after this operation.
To use non Dixell, but Modbus compatible controllers (such as Energy Analyzer by Carlo Gavazzi)
follow this instructions:
a) Go to “Configuration” then “Devices”.
b) On the drop down menu “Actions” select “New...”.
c) A new pop-up window will appear: fill in the blank with the name of the controller and the ADR.
d) Choose the proper device model (e.g. “ENERGY_800000000000000”).
e) Press “Create”

2.1.7 REMOTE CONNECTION FROM A CLIENT PC
2.1.7.1
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 appendix E, you can find the
complete list of accessories together with their commercial name. Dixell can provide you these modems. You
can decide to buy them in your country, but do not use different models from the ones stated here. Dixell is
not responsible for any action depending on a modem that is not present in the official list of supported
accessories.
External Modem.
Connect the modem to the COM Port on the back side using the modem cable commonly included into the
modem packaging itself.
The reset of XWEB modem is directly controlled by the XWEB Server through the COM port, but if you use a
GSM modem remember to use the external relay to cut the modem power supply to reset it.
Connect the modem to the telephone line with the phone cable included into the modem packaging.
Remember to check if there is a switching machine (add the prefix digit). The connection procedure is
divided in two parts:
In the first part it is necessary to create the Remote Access, in your remote PC, set with the telephone
number of the line where the XWEB is connected to. You have to use Dixell as Username and Password.
The second is the procedure you will ever use: after launching the new Remote Access that will engage the
line via the modem, start the Browser from your PC and insert the address http://192.168.0.150 into
Explorer/Netscape address bar. Proper information about setting up a dial-up connection for the client PC,
can be found inside the INSTALLATION MANUAL on §4.3.
2.1.7.2
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 must be set with this number.
Use a standard RJ45 network cable to connect the unit to your existing LAN.
The Intranet method allows the connection to interact with XWEB 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.

XWEB500/300
15/114
2.1.7.3 INTERNET CONNECTION
It is necessary a STATIC IP address for the XWEB which is normally assigned by the Provider of your
internet services.
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 static IP.
This the internet system requirements for the best result:


Wide band connection.
At least 1 static IP addresses for the XWEB.
The internet connection is established through a device called Router that receives and sends the data as

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.
REMEMBER: ask qualified personnel for the router installation by using this information:
Used ports that are mapped to the LAN side:
 22 (used for SSH connection)
 80 (used for the Error! Hyperlink reference not valid. access)
The above ports are all related to the XWEB IP address 192.168.0.150.
While the ports on the WAN side are:
 http (To access the XWEB)

2.3 CONFIGURATION AND ACCESS
Before turning on the XWEB read these notes.
The local access via network cable is the fastest way to manage the first setup of the unit. Be sure the Pcclient is provided with Java Virtual Machine. Launch the Browser and insert the default address
192.168.0.150.
2.3.1 MICROSOFT WINDOWS: POP-UP BLOCKER AND COOKIES
XWEB uses some pop-up windows to show the user the real status of each operation, unfortunately these
pop-ups are blocked by Windows pop-up blocker. Usually Internet Explorer adds a yellow bar to inform you
about the blocked pop-up (image below).
To avoid this problem, please follow these rules:
1. Go to “Tools” and then “Internet Options…”:

3. Add the default address of XWEB, i.e: 192.168.0.150.
Please remember to add each IP address you will use to this list.
2.3.2 MICROSOFT WINDOWS: CACHE FILES
Often referred to as the cache, the Temporary Internet Files folder contains a kind of travel record of the
items you have seen, or downloaded from the Web, including images, sounds, Web pages, even cookies.
Typically these items are stored in the Temporary Internet Files folder.
Storing these files in your cache can make browsing the Web faster because it usually takes your computer
less time to display a Web page when it can call up some of the page's elements or even the entire page
from your local Temporary Internet Files folder, but at the same time can prevent you from receiving correct
information from the XWEB you are connect to.
These files also take up space, so we suggest deleting them periodically. When you clear out the files stored
in your cache you go through the “clearing the cache” procedure.
To clear your cache:
1.On the Internet Explorer Tools menu, click Internet Options. The Internet Options box should open to the
General tab.
2.On the General tab, in the Temporary Internet Files section, click the Delete Files button. This will delete all
the files that are currently stored in your cache.

2.3.3 THIRD PART SOFTWARE AND XWEB
As general rule please remember that software such as antivirus programs, firewall programs, toolbars
(Yahoo and Google bar) may prevent you from connecting properly to XWEB. We strongly suggest to check
these softwares setup and add the IP address of XWEB to the trusted site list of your software. As far as
firewall is concerned, add port 80 and port 22 to the allowed ports forwarding, of course all the TCP/IP
requests coming from the IP address of XWEB must be allowed.

Click on “System setup” to adjust System name, description, language, date/time and time-zone format.
They are important because the system will use its time stamp to record and send alarm.
Only for XWEB300: you can manage the alarm relay as AUX.
In the section "XJR40D configuration" configure the extension of the alarm relays with XJR40D: the device
must already be present in the configuration of Modbus devices (go to "Devices" or "Find Device"). Select
the module XJR40D to use for the extension alarms then configure alarm delivery in the "Alarms" page (level
parameters). Warning: the polarity of the relay module XJR40D is managed by the parameters of the module
itself: refer to the documentation of the module for testing and / or programming it.
Enable/Disable of this feature is shown in the system log.

2.3.7 NETWORK SETUP
By clicking “Network Setup” is possible to
customize all network settings. The
default IP is 192.168.0.150, if you change
it, please refer to this new number each
time you encounter the default IP inside
this manual.
The next window allows you to setup the
network. You can choose “No network”, it
means you will not be able to reach your
XWEB using intranet/lan access. This is
an uncommon situation. On the other side
if you check the radio button “fixed
network”, you have to fill in the blank
labels.
We
suggest
you,
before
proceeding, to contact your network
administrator to get help.
IP ADDRESS: you need this unique
number to identify your XWEB. There are
2 kind of IP numbers: private and public
ones. The first are usually used to setup
an intranet/lan where all clients do not
need to be reached from outside. We can
compare this situation to a close
environment: communication is possible
only among IP belonging to this private
range. For example IP numbers
192.168.xxx.yyy defines a private
network.
NETWORK MASK: is just like a filter, 255.255.255.0 means XWEB can directly reaches only PCs belonging
to its own IP range. All other requests will be sent to a valid gateway.
GATEWAY ADDRESS: You have to compile this field with a valid gateway IP number. Gateway machines
are a kind of portal through which all data that can not directly reach the target IP, is sent.
PRIMARY/SECONDARY DNS: In the internet world you can reach a web server using its name, for example
www.dixell.com, by typing the name into your web-browser address bar. Due to the protocol used to
guarantee performance and security, all names are converted into IP numbers. This operation is made by a
DNS server. Usually your ISP or your network administrator can provide you a valid DNS number. DNS are
also mandatory to use e-mail and the internet upgrade procedure.
Webserver port number: use it to set a different port number for the web server. In the example the new
address to go to XWEB500 is http://192.168.0.150:8080
DHCP Server: use it to force Ethernet network configurations from XWEB. This parameter is usually
disabled and please enable this function only after consultancy by network administrator.

2.3.8 MODEM SETUP
Next window allows you to setup the modem
connection. XWEB uses the modem to send
faxes and in same cases also e-mails. In the
first case the unit itself can send a fax, while
in the second case you may need to setup a
dial-up connection (next step).
When XWEB modem is in use, it is
important to choose the country according to
the real country where XWEB is installed.
From the drop down menu “country”, choose
yours (either internal or external one, but
also both of them). Please choose your
country to avoid modem malfunctioning. If
your country is not available in the supported
list, please contact Dixell. XWEB can
manage up to 2 modem simultaneously:
enable/disable them according to your real
application. Remember also to set “Dial-in
calls” and the number of rings before the
answer of the modem.
To use a XWEB model with integrated
modem (GPRS), select ‘internalGSM’ in the
“internal modem” section and enable the
calls from internal modem in the “incoming
calls” section. This function is available only
for DIN models.
2.3.9 DIALUP SETUP
Click on “Dial up” to proper setup the internet
connection for sending e-mails. You need a
valid internet account, then fill in all the field.
If you do not have a valid SMTP Server, once
connected to the Internet, XWEB will try to
send the e-mail directly to the receiver. This
type of operation is NOT support by all ISP
(internet service provider). For this reason it
is strongly recommended to use a valid
SMTP.
When using a GPRS modem integrated in
XWEB, the dial-up line does not work.
Instead, configure the “GPRS configuration”
that follows in the same page.
For a complete configuration example for a
GPRS configuration see appendix D.

2.3.10 E-MAIL SETUP
XWEB can handles e-mail, but to send
them you need to make a proper setup of
the unit. XWEB can send e-mail either via
network or via dial-up, please choose the
proper option according to your needs. To
send e-mails a SMTP server must exist
and XWEB have to reach this server
through the LAN or via dial-up. In this
case gateway and DNS parameters are
mandatory in “Network Configuration”
window. If dial-up is used therefore there
is no direct LAN access to internet. In this
case a modem is needed, XWEB will
contact directly your ISP provider and
using its services will send all the e-mails.
To send e-mail you need a valid SMTP
server. Usually your LAN administrator
will provide you a server name, for
example dixell.com (another format widely
used is mail.company-name.com), then a
valid e-mail address is needed.
We strongly suggest you to create a new e-mail account to use with XWEB. In this case, e-mail header will
be something like this: xweb@your-company-name.com. This is very useful to apply e-mail filtering in the
client PC. It is not necessary to have a dedicated mail account to use e-mail services, but is strongly
recommended because for example many SMTP servers need user account authentication (especially ISP)
and in this case without a proper user you can not send e-mails. Moreover if your SMTP requires
authentication, please check “Yes” box and fill in with the right values. If either network or dial-up setup has
already been done, you can send a test e-mail/SMS/Fax by pressing the proper button.

2.3.11 SMS SETUP
XWEB can send SMSs using several kinds of services to notify user about detected alarms on Devices
Network.
To use Netech service (SMS via internet) please read http://www.netech.it/ir_smsalert before proceeding.
After the online registration module has been submitted you will receive via email the activation code. Use it
to configure your XWEB. This service provides statistics and to clearly recognize it we recommend to
configure your XWEB with a name that makes it unique. Proceed purchasing SMSs from Netech web page.
To use GSM service (using credit you may have in your SIM card) enable internal/external modem enabling
GSM parameter.
To use SOpen Corea service (SMS via internet. For Corea only), setup ‘network’ and ‘SOpen’ and configure
XWEB with Activation Code, sMsgCd and sSendNo codes you have received from your Corean provider with
an unique XWEB name.
To use RavenXE service (using credit you may have in your SIM card but using an external RavenXE
modem), setup ‘network’ and ‘raven XE’ then configure its IP address and its port. Refer to its manual for
istructions.
2.3.12 PRINTER SETUP
This unit supports only USB printers. To obtain a list of tested printers you should connect to
www.dixell.com
on
XWEB
support
section
or
you
can
click
on

To enable the printer, you have to select your printer from the list and you should select the right driver (or
that one Dixell can advise you):
2.3.13 XCENTER
The centralized alarm management software, automatically enables XWEB500 to be part of the monitored
network. The user later can disable the alarm sending to the XCenter (warning: delay and accumulation time
will be considered as usual).

2.3.14 SYSTEM MESSAGES
XWEB is able to send a complete report of the past activity. The report can be sent both automatically and
manually according to an event calendar defined by the user (see Scheduler §). Moreover if the system is
working out of the standard operative range (i.e. cpu temperature), automatically a report will be sent out.
This tool can also be used when the user wants to test the system setup, in fact it is possible to test for
example the e-mail: XWEB will send an e-mail to the selected receiver.
Enable system notification: enable/disable reporting activity
Enable alarm relay: enable/disable alarm relay when an alarm occurs (high temperature, a faulty RS485
hardware and blackout)
2.3.14.1 MANUAL TEST: E-MAIL, FAX OR SMS SENDING
Select the user in the “Receiver” drop down menu, then select the message type you want to receive. The
calendar option let you choose whether to filter the messages according to the calendar (ref. 3.3.5) or not. By
pressing “Send message” the system tries to send the message.
2.3.14.2 SENDING AUTOMATIC REPORTS (ONLY FOR XWEB WITH SCHEDULER)
To receive an automatic report you must tick “Enable system notification” (in the above window), then go to
“Configuration” then “Scheduler”. Choose “Event” and finally “Add system event”. The following window will
appear:
In the above example the system will send a report everyday at 09:00 a.m.

The unit is capable to find the Dixell instruments connected to the RS485 serial line. Before starting the
procedure be sure that all the devices are properly connected to the RS485 line and the corresponding
addresses are properly set. Be sure that all the instruments are properly supplied. Be sure of the number of
the instruments you are going to find to avoid losing time in counting them later. To start the procedure, first
click on “Data recording” and uncheck all values, push modify. Click on “Configuration -> “Device find” rolldown menu. A new page loads.

3.3.2 CATEGORIES
This function allows you to define the functioning attributes and the working
features of the instruments themselves. The user is required to preventively
decide the list of these features.
Lately, when working with the Device configuration, each device can be easily
configured with these appropriate attributes. Some categories can be defined
also with “Default”. In this case the category is initially proposed as default during
the instrument configuration.
Click on “Configuration” “Category” roll-down menu.
3.3.2.1 DEVICE TIPOLOGY
This category defines the application at which the instruments belong to. Eg: “Display cabinets” “Frozen
food”, “Meat Room”, “Air Conditioning”, etc.
 To insert a new item
Click “New” and then into the
field “Name”. Insert the word or
the words that more represents
the application;
The most common category should be set as “Default” by clicking into its box;
Only one “Default” can be selected for each category;
Click “Insert” to include the new item into the list. Wait the screen refresh.
 To modify an existing item
Click on the name-field and modify it, then press “Modify”;
Click the “Set as Default ” if necessary;

3.3.2.3 RTC SYNCRONIZATION
In this section user can decide how often to
synchronise the controller equipped with a real time
clock.
Interval is expressed in hh:mm. The maximum
value accepted is 12:00. It means that every 12
hours a synchronise-command is sent to the
controller. To enable a controller, the user has to go
to the “Devices” page and check the “RTC Sync”
checkbox.
3.3.3 SCHEDULER (ONLY FOR XWEB500DIN)
This is a powerful tool for managing category and repetitive commands. Now it is possible to send command
to a set of controllers and have a “visual” chart. This feature, for instance, is very useful to avoid command
time-overlap.
To start the “Scheduler”, use the drop-down menu “Configuration”, then “Scheduler”. This window will appear
(Java is required):
On the bottom there is a timeline (00:00 to 24:00), each hour is marked with a vertical line. This main window
is very useful to build a complete time table in a very easy and fast way.

3.3.4 ALARMS
3.3.4.1
ALARM TYPOLOGY AND ALARM LEVELS
The alarm typology is a list of alarm events designed by the user to describe the possible alarms that the
instruments can generate.
In this way similar alarm events can be grouped together under a unique identification label, so high and low
temperature alarms can be defined as “Temperature alarms” or the high and low pressure alarms belong to
“Pressure alarm” identification.
The Alarm Level list is also designed and named by the user. Each alarm level can be assigned with one or
many alarm typologies.
The alarm level starts the appropriate action in case of alarm event and depending on the level of alert it
transfers the information via fax or e-mail with appropriate messages or turn on relays etc.

For each receiver the calendar function is also suitable to enable the alarm sending procedure only during
certain period of time. See Calendar chapter.
3.3.4.3
ALARM LEVELS
The alarm levels are organised as a list of items. Each named level provides to execute the right procedure
to transfer the alarm notification to the receiver or receivers. They act just like a filter.
E.g: an alarm belonging to the “Temperature alarm” typology can be differently treated from the “no-link”
alarm so as the destination and the kind of message is suitable to a proper information about the alarm event
itself. The alarm level also assigns the number of receivers and the transmission mode (Fax and E-mail). It is
also possible to switch on/off the status of the onboard relay (only for XWEB500DIN). Check/uncheck AUX1
or AUX2 in the proper page. In the back of the unit you can find the relay outputs.
WARNING:
Terminal blocks for relays AUX1 and AUX2 can not be used for
switching high voltage loads (24V or higher). Use a low voltage
circuit to manage your loads.
The easiest method to work with levels is to define three kinds of alarms corresponding to “Severe alarm”,
“Standard alarm”, “Warning”. Each alarm typology, depending on its importance, can be linked to one of this
three alarm level to alert different personnel.
It is also allowed to define as many alarm levels as the existing alarm typology in order to transfer complete
information about each alarm origin.
Under the device configuration paragraph you will learn how to assign the designed alarm typologies and
alarm levels to each instrument.
This multilevel structure gives the maximum flexibility and it comes to solve every kind of alarm management
problem.
The "XJR40D Configuration" appears to the user only if you have configured the system to a module
XJR40D for the extension of alarm notifications with relays (Configuration menuSystemSystem). You
can for example set it up on for four distinct levels reporting for example “high temperature NT”, “high
temperature LT”, “failure rack NT”, “failure rack LT”.

3.3.4.4
ALARM TYPOLOGY MANAGEMENT
The alarm typology list, designed by the user, groups the common alarm features of the instrument into an
unique definition. For instance all the temperature alarms that are not important can be defined by a typology
named as “Normal Alarm” while the temperature alarms of the frozen food can be identified by the typology
“Severe Alarm”.
The user can assign a typology name for the desired alarm event such as: High temperature, low
temperature, High or pressure, open door, compressor oil, Frozen food, etc…
The user can define the accuracy of the alarm description
Each typology can define the following:









One of the alarm level previously defined to send the alarm.
The Delay time that defines the minimum duration of alarm. The alarm must be longer to be
computed, otherwise the system will only record the event in the alarm historical list.
The accumulation time that defines the time when the alarm will be sent. This time will be counted
only if the alarm lasts more than its delay time.
For each alarm the user can insert the appropriate word(s) that represent(s) the alarm transmission.
To inset a new Alarm typology
Click into the “Name” and insert the appropriate word(s) to describe the alarm typology.
Assign the alarm level procedure under “Level”.
Define the “Accumulation” time and the minimum activation time or “Delay” of the alarm.
Insert the appropriate message header into the corresponding fields.

3.3.4.5 QUEUED MESSAGES
The fax message can be sent to a back-up number (“Second fax number”). If the first number is engaged
or the line is unavailable, the system tries to send the message to the second fax number.
3.3.5 CALENDAR FUNCTION
The Calendar function is used to define if a function or a single event is active or not in the selected period of
time.
Therefore the Calendar is suitable to include/exclude certain period of the day, month or year when it has to
interact with some XWEB procedures or for instance if the maintenance personnel is working on the unit.
The resource (or any programmed procedure that the XWEB has to follow) related to a Calendar is available
“Enabled” only during the selected periods otherwise it is “Disabled” and it does not work.
The XWEB use the Calendar as filter before activating the resource itself, if the resource is not Enabled in
that period nothing happens.
The alarm procedure to inform an Assistance Centre or the light on function can be override by their
appropriate Calendar programming.
The number of Calendars is not limited and each Calendar can manage more than one resource.
The Calendar is based on a weekly list extended for all the month, the tile colour shows the function related
to that day
The day is divided in:
 Enabled
 Partly Enabled
 Disabled
 Green colour;
 Yellow colour;
 Grey colour.
Disabled day represent the 24 hours where the resource is not active (eg holiday).
Enabled and Partly Enabled days can accept the period of activity of the resource.

3.3.6 DEVICE CONFIGURATION
The configuration of the devices allows to assign the appropriate monitoring system attributes.
The configuration is subordinated to the manual or automatic search procedure to create a list of the
available instruments.
For each kind of device XWEB will show only the specific information of the controller itself and the attributes
of the available digital and analogue inputs of the instrument. Only this part of configuration admits the
association of the categories previously defined such as the alarms, typologies and time recoding.
If during the configuration it is necessary to use a category to associate to a new feature of the instrument
but the category it is not present, the user can step back into the Categories menu, create the new category
and then restart with the device configuration.
3.3.6.1
SELECT A DEVICE
Please go to “Configuration” -> “Devices” roll-down menu. This window will appear:
By using “Device” drop-down menu you can select which controllers to show.
If the instrument has not been already renamed the identification name is: “New_Model-name” where:


“New” means that the name has been assigned automatically by the system;
“Model-name” define the instrument model.

Instead of “xxx_New_Model” the user can insert the new appropriate name for this instrument.
3.3.6.2
ASSIGN THE NAME OF THE CONTROLLER
After selecting the device, click into the “Name” field. Insert the new name such as “Frozen food_001”.
Assign the proper sampling “Interval”, decide if you want to read and record data from this instrument by
checking/unchecking “Data Reading” and “Recording” boxes.
“Data Buffer” is an useful function that stores with the maximum speed available lots of data values
(regardless of sampling interval) when an alarm occurs. Ten minutes of data values before and 5 after
the alarm are recorded at maximum speed if “Data Buffer” box is checked. Finally if you need to
synchronize the on-board RTC of the controller, select RTC.
Click “Modify” now or at the end of the whole configuration.
3.3.6.3
ASSIGN THE CATEGORY TO THE DEVICE “DEVICE CATEGORY SETUP”
Be sure of having selected the right instrument under the “Device” menu.
Depending on the instrument model there are different available categories to define the attributes of the
instrument itself. If you do not find the right one maybe it is not defined or it is not available for that
instrument. By itself XWEB, after the recognising procedure, assigns the default categories (if you
checked the box in category window) to the devices connected to the RS 485. To change the category
click inside the field and select the appropriate item.
Click “Modify” now or at the end of the whole configuration.
3.3.6.4
ASSIGN THE ALARM TYPOLOGY
Be sure of having selected the right instrument under the “Device” menu.
ALARM ORIGIN: depending on the instrument model there are different available alarms, if you do not
find the right one it means that it is not available for that instrument.
NAME: each alarm can be assigned with an appropriate label defined by the user, this label is also used
when it is displayed by the system. Click inside the “Name” and modify it.
TIPOLOGY: links alarm type to the proper Alarm typology.
If you do not find the proper action in it, step back to the Alarms definition to insert the new features into
a new alarm typology.
SH (Show): when it is enabled th alarm is showed in main page.
SND (Send): when it is enabled the alarm is sent by XWEB.
REC (Recording): when it is enabled the corresponding alarm is logged.
Click “Modify” now or at the end of the whole configuration.

3.3.6.5
DEFINE THE DIGITAL, ANALOGUE INPUTS AND THE STATUS
The middle area is dedicated to the analogue inputs (probe), setpoint, digital inputs, devices status, and
commands assignments.
NAME: The first time each name is displayed by following the internal XWEB archive of standard feature
of the instruments. Each definition can be renamed when necessary to give the proper meaning. Beware
of the difference between integer and decimal value. Instruments are factory preset to decimal point, so
if you change this value to integer you need to make the same change inside XWEB. All default labels
are intended as decimal, when you change to integer a postfix “-I” is shown. It may happen that you
move to integer using advanced properties (see Appendix A), then coming back to label name and
changing it without using “-I” you completely loose the information you are displaying integer. This may
be a problem because when you come back to advanced section there is no more difference between
decimal and integer.
To change a name simply click inside its field and modify it.
Unit: The analogue input is followed by the proper unit of measurement, change the unit by clicking in it
then insert the new value. Beware that in this window you can change only the label of the unit of
measurement. In Advanced section you can change the behaviour of the instrument (e.g. Celsius or
Fahrenheit degree)
Click “Confirm” now or at the end of the whole configuration.


Delete one device from the list
Stop acquisitions. Select the instrument to delete.
Click on “Cancel” in “Action” menu.
Advanced function
The “Advanced” key allows to reach another configuration area dedicated to the instrument setup.
This area is very dangerous because this configuration defines important features that can badly affect
the unit if not properly set.
Take care of this advice and ask authorised personnel before trying any kind of setting.
You can find more complete information in Appendix A.
3.3.6.6 CLONE FUNCTION
This function is intended to let the user save a lot of time during the first setup of the XWEB.
By using this function the system will broadcast the current instrument setup to all the other that are
compatible. The compatible instruments are only the ones who belong to the same model. In this
situation the user is requested to made only one setup, then using “clone” button in few seconds
(depending on the total number of instruments) the configuration will be applied to all the other

controllers.
In the first step you are required to make a complete setup regarding both standard and advanced
section.
When you are ready, please go to “Configuration” -> “Devices” roll-down menu. This window will appear:
In the upper part you can see information concerning the name of the instrument that the system will use as
base model (“Source device”).
In our example we have a XJP60D whose name is “Acq. module 1”. It is possible to change the name of the
“Target device” by clicking in the field “Name”.
By clicking “Clone” button XWEB begins to broadcast this setup to all the compatible instruments. Once it
has finished a summarising window will appear. It is also possible to decide to clone both the typology and

The last stripe of information contains the available commands for that instrument. Use them to operate
on the instrument. Take care of the operations you make with commands.
Click on the interested function button, after sending the command the information of the new status will
be automatically updated and displayed.
Beware that “Stand By” commands turn off the instruments.
3.5.2 RUN TIME
The run time function provides to display into a unique window many devices together. This is dynamic page
and the data showed are updated in real time (the period depends on the number of instruments).
This page based on the modern Java programming language, therefore it is necessary to have the
Java Virtual Machine installed on the client PC.
Normally the JVM is already installed into the PC operative systems, (if not present see Minimum
requirements section in this manual). A warning message will propose you to use it. Accept it, the
software applet is guaranteed free from viruses.
In the Home page select the “Run time” from the “Devices” menu. The first part is referred to the selection of
the Category of the devices installed in order to save loading time, while the selection “All” will show all the
instruments. After selecting the proper category, XWEB begins sending data to your PC. The first time you
load the RUN-TIME windows, you are requested to accept the start of JVM program. All applets that use
JVM are certified by Dixell. Please answer to the warning windows by clicking on the “OK” button (the
message text depends on the release of JVM and on operative system of the PC). Then the Run Time page
will start to display the selected devices with their information. If one or more instruments have an active
alarm event, the message box will indicate the alarm situation with a red “Alarms” label. If whole situation of
the instrument displayed is normal, the message box will show “Device(s) OK !” in green colour.

Each device is represented by an horizontal row that includes as many rows as many information are
available from the instrument.
For each row, the blue bar contains the address and the instrument name followed by the typology to
which the instrument belongs to. At the end of the blue bar there is the command box “Sel”.
The second row of a main row contains the set-point and the analogue inputs like the probe values or
other peculiar information of the instrument read-outs such as the electrical measurements of a net
analyser.
The third row of a main row is divided in three parts: the first area contains the icon symbols of the
instrument status, the second area contains the icon symbols of the instrument outputs (relays) and the
third area shows the digital input status with their complete description.
An icon not surrounded by a blue square means the corresponding function is not active. The active
status of an instrument function is represented with the corresponding blue icon.
More information about the icon function can be red, pointing the mouse arrow over a single icon, on the
left down corner of the browser border.

Devices in alarm
In case of alarm event the corresponding instrument is signalled with the red blinking description.
Immediately also the message box, on the top of the browser bar, will indicate the alarm situation with a
red “Alarms” label.
Find the complete alarm description clicking on the row blue bar.
A pop up message box will appear, inside you will find the list of the actual alarms that also includes the
starting date of each event.

3.5.4 LAYOUT FUNCTION (ONLY FOR XWEB500DIN)
With this function it is possible to build up a Layout view of the system been monitoring.
The user can creates as many layers as he needs and place important information and data value coming
directly from the instruments.
XWEB uses 2 different menus to deal with Layout: one is “Layout Edit”, the other is “Layout Viewer”. Both of
them use web-technology, so Java Virtual Machine is needed. More importantly that all data information is
stored inside the XWEB server and it is pushed dynamically to your client. This means that according to the
connection speed pages could take different loading time.
The Editor is the most important part, we start discussing it first.
We strongly suggest to set client PC resolution to 1024 x 768 pixels and use the same resolution for
the background images.
3.5.4.1 LAYOUT EDITOR
To start “Layout Editor”, go to “Devices” then choose “Layout Editor”.
If this is the first time you run the Layout, a blank windows will appear.
The available menus are:
File Submenu:
NEW LAYOUT
This function is used when you want to start a new Layout. Beware that the system can only manages one
layout per time. There is no possibility to save a Layout with a particular name and then build up a new one.

SAVE
This function allow you to save the changes done till now. Beware that the system can not go back to a
previous save, only the last one is available.

LOAD
Load the last Layout

EXIT
Closes the Editor.

Layers Submenu:
ADD LAYER
It is used to add a new layer to the layout. Selecting it this windows will appear:

User has to compile “Name” with any text value, then he can choose the background colour and also a
background image pushing “Image…” button. In this case a new window will appear:
Choose an image and press “Ok”. When you use images the system has to send them to your client.
Depending on the speed of the connection the download procedure may take up to some minutes.
According to the client screen resolution the system will load up a new page. The real dimensions (width
and height) come from the monitor setting of the client itself. The system later is capable of dynamically
resize this value to show images and layers in a proper format. We strongly suggest making some test
before proceeding with the complete layout design. Usually images are taken with a digital camera. Beware
1592028000 XWEB300D_500_500D opr GB r2.2.0 2013.08.01.docx
XWEB500/300
68/114
do not confuse this resolution value (e.g. megapixel 3, 4 or more) with the one of your monitor (800x600,
1024x768 pixels). When you take a digital picture, your camera saves it according to its setup. Once you
download these photos to your PC you need to resize them to the value you want to use in the layout.
Example Table 1
Digital Picture resolution
2048 x 1536 (3-megapixel)
2272 x 1712 (4-megapixel)
2592 x 1944 (5-megapixel)
File size RAW
9MB
12Mb
15MB
File size JPG highest resolution
~1,10MB
~1,47MB
~1,82MB
With a image editing software you can resize all the picture to the proper size. Size also means kilobytes to
download for the client. We suggest to use images not bigger than 40~50 Kb. Of course if you have a fast
connection you may exceed this value. File format supported are: JPG and GIF. We strongly suggest to use
JPG due to its better compression factor. As an example you can refer to the following table chart:
Example Table 2
File Resolution
800 x 600 (outdoor image)
800 x 600 (outdoor image)
1024 x 768 (outdoor image)

Compression ratio
45%
65%
45%

Actual file size, if you use JPG compression, depends on the picture you are compressing. Different pictures
with same compression ratio and same file resolution, may have different file size.

3.5.6 PERFORMANCE METER (ONLY FOR XWEB500DIN)
The value added by this new software tool is remarkable: possibility to check the correctness of the
compressor rack size; possibility to check the proper functioning of each device; statistics data collection.
Firstly go to “Data” then “Performance meter”. Secondly go to “Class” menu and then choose “Create
class”. Fill in as the following:
Class Name: the name of the class, usually corresponds to the name of the typology you have already
created.
Typology Filter: let you filter between different typologies.
Set point: let you choose between more than one set point (if available)
Probe: let you choose which probe you want to use to calculate the average temperature.
Sampling (min.): period of time to use for collecting data samples
Avg. Factor: this number will be multiply by the “Sampling” to obtain the average time interval length.
This value is computed to calculate the average value for the interval.
Normal Range (min. and max.): the user can add a temperature interval. When temperature is out of
this range the slide bar will be coloured with red.
Defrost offset (min.): elapsed time to count before starting camputing the maximum temperature
reached after a defrost.
The following picture shows how XWEB computes the maximum value of temperature (Max) and the
maximum value after a defrost (Tdef). The former is computing by subtracting the time interval [A,B]. The
latter depends on the parameter “Defrost Offset”, so the system computes Tdef by subtracting the time
interval [A,C].

The information provided is: in the past two days (between 24/06 and 26/06, look at “period”), the system
calculated the average set-point “SP1” and the average temperature “Avg”. Moreover it displays the
minimum, the maximum value and the maximum value of temperature after a defrost (Tdef). Finally it
shows the percentage of cool “%Cool”. The latter is the most important value, it is calculated by using
the following math formula: %Cool

TCOOL
 100
T  TDEFROST
TCOOL = cool time (corresponding relay open), in the selected time interval or the average %
T = time interval selected
TDEFROST = defrost time in the selected interval
To complete the information provided this tool show also a horizontal bar and a Legenda. If the user
moves the mouse pointer above this area, the cursor will show the temperature and the data.

3.5.6.1
INTERPRETING THE %COOL
From an ideal point of view the highest the percentage is, the better the compressor rack has been
tuned. Of course if many devices work with a percentage next to 100% it means that quite probably
during the worst condition case some devices may fail to receive the correct amount of cooling. Use the
data provided by “Performance meter” according to your experience. This software tool can be useful
also when the majority of the devices (belonging to the same typology) work within a certain range and
only one reports a different value. Quite probably that one is not working properly.

GLOBAL COMMANDS
This function allows the user to load a window containing all the global commands previously defined in
the “Global Edit”. In the main page go under Device menu and choose “Global Commands”.
3.6 CRO (ONLY FOR XWEB WITH CRO)
Dixell, thanks to its experience in the industrial refrigeration market and even more
important, thanks to the tight relationship with the customer, has developed a specific
module intended to energy-saving politics. C.R.O. basically works with 2 parameters:
suction pressure of the compressor rack and the worst case cabinet. The former is
detected via a XC1000D controller (ver.1.1 or higher) and XC600CX by Dixell, the
latter is computed according to a special algorithm based on the time-switching of the
solenoid relay.
This propriety algorithm mixes together into a winning software tool the complexity of the refrigeration system
and the easy parameter programming of the user interface. Moreover, once again the software is a JAVA
APPLET, it means no need to install a PC software. Data depends on the seasonal period and varies from
installation to installation. To start the C.R.O., go to “Supervising” then C.R.O. The following windows
appears:

XWEB500/300

To use the C.R.O. you must add a class of . XWEB500 will extract from this controllers data to calculate the
special algorithm. Go to “Class” menu and create a new class definition..
Open “Operation” menu, the following window appears:
The C.R.O. to better manage the availability of the refrigeration power, it modifies the set-point of the normal
temperature compressor rack controller. Execution interval set when the new set-point will be applied to the
compressor rack. Back analysis interval set how far in the past the analysis must retrieve its data. Defrost

check interval can be used as a check if the controllers really defrost. If there is no defrost for a period of
longer than this parameter, the C.R.O. will add a warning to the graph report.
Reference class is the group of controllers involved in the data analysis of the worst case. Controller is the
device made by Dixell that controls the compressor rack. Set point let the user choose the right set-point
(usually the suction set-point). The parameter for the worst case calculation (represented in percentage), let
the user define a threshold for the C.R.O.: below the value there is no action, above the algorithm sends the
new set-point. Dead band is set across the worst case set parameter and defines a neutral band: here inside
no action is starter. The algorithm to modify the suction pressure needs to know the initial value of this figure.
The Initial pressure parameter is used to set this value. Min./Max. suct. Press. Parameters are security limits
for the C.R.O. We strongly suggest to add this entries to prevent the algorithm to set set-point values out of
bound. Release and Call gain parameters control the new set-point value according to the following
formulas. If the real-time percentage is below the one setup in worst case set (dead band is computed), the
new set-point is:
 RLS gain
Set new  Set old   %  
 1000



%  (real-time percentage) – (worst case set percentage)
RLS gain  release gain
If the real-time percentage is above the one setup in worst case set (dead band is computed), the new setpoint is:
 CALL gain
Set new  Set old   %  
 1000



%  (real-time percentage) – (worst case set percentage)
CALL gain  call gain
The real-time percentage is the worst percentage present in the installation according to the quantity of cool
power requested by all the controllers during the back analysis interval.
Finally it is possible to simulate the set-point modifications: select acquire data only. To activate the C.R.O.
press enable engine. To deactivate the C.R.O. press disable engine. To view the graph report, go to view
menu.

Graphs is a file containing all the instrument data recording, the time interval used for these recordings is
defined into the category “Recording interval”.
This archive grows time by time depending on the number of instruments and it can become very large
occupying the available memory contained into the server.
3.7.1 DISPLAY THE GRAPHS
With “Data” menu you can access Graphs section, then select the desired controller from the filter lists of the
Device typology. After selecting the controller, the screen will show all the available data which the
instrument is provided with.
The first information about the archive shows into “Available Interval” the first and the last recording date,
while the “Select Interval” includes the period you can decided to show.
If necessary, modify the Select Interval period.
Longer is the time interval to show, longer the loading time needed to show the data graph.
For a first analysis select a time period not so wide but centred on the target of your interest, this ensure
higher graph precision. You can also act on “Graph Density” parameters to decide if you need all data
samples. This feature is very useful if you are connected via modem at a slow speed.
You have many rows: Analog Input – Setpoint – Digital Input – Output Status – Devices Staus - Alarm.
The number of the rows depends on the controller type.
For each of them you can graphs as many values as you want. The only limitation is 3 analog values and
2 digital ones.
For each selection is possible to decide the colour of the line that will be represented.
It is also possible to group the analogue inputs into a unique graph or to display them into separated
ones. For example if you want to display all data using only one graph, select for each value AG1 from
the roll-down menu, then in “Graph labels” write some words reminding you the meaning of the graphs.

On the other side if you want to display the values in different graphs, you have to chose AG1 for the first
values, AG2 for the second and AG3 for the third.
Remember that each graph can be renamed by the user with an appropriate name into the
corresponding “Graph Labels” situated into the low side of the page.
Before clicking the command “View” it is possible to define the graph density to decide the resolution of
the lines and recordings. Select the box “ Graph Density”.
Higher is the value of this parameter better will be the graph resolution, but longer the downloading time
from the XWEB.
Now Click on “View” to start the transferring process of data from the XWEB to your PC.
The displaying structure is based on a Java Applet and the Java Virtual Machine program installed into
the remote PC that computes the data coming from the XWEB.
Depending on the Virtual Machine version installed a message to accept the term of use will appear
during the operation.
Dixell S.r.l.. guarantees that the software is free from viruses and the request can be accepted.
The counter signals shows the status of the data you are
downloading
At the end you will see the graph.

Zoom in/out procedures
Before executing the zoom it is necessary, if there is more than a graph displayed, to select the desired

To zoom in you just have to keep pressed to left mouse button.
To zoom out you just have to keep pressed to right mouse button

Zoom into an area
To enhance the portion of a displayed graph click and keep pressed the left button of the mouse on the
hypothetical top-left corner of the area to zoom.
Than drag the mouse down to the low right corner to complete the window to zoom. If the selected area
have not the proper dimensions click one time outside the area itself to abort the zoom, then repeat the
operation to select the area to zoom.
Otherwise, if you click one time with the left button inside the selected area, immediately this area will be
zoomed to the borders of the graph.

Back to the original size
To resize the graph to its original dimension select from the “Scale” menu the “Reset Size” option.

Manual Scale
The first time the graph is displayed with an “auto scale” function defined by highest and lowest peek and
the whole interval time selected.
Do define a personal scale of the graph view select from the “Scale” menu the “Manual Size” item.
The next windows will show the X and Y scale limits that the user can adapt to his requirement.

Graph Synchronism
When a instrument information are displayed into 2 or more graphs, all the horizontal time axes are
synchronised together.
By zooming only one of the graphs the result is that the other are no more synchronised with the new
time base.
To keep all the graph synchronised you can use the “Sync” function from tools menu
Select it for each graph that has to be included into the synchronism function, then zoom into one of
them. You can notice that all time axes are now synchronized

Graph info
The graph information area is immediately displayed with the graph itself.
If necessary move or drag it where it does not cover part of the interested area.
To close the information window click on its crossed button.
To make it appear again select “Legenda” from the “Tools” menu.

3.7.4 EXPORT TO USB PEN DRIVE
From the same page, it’s possible to select the “Export to USB”. The following screen appears:
To activate the function, the following steps are needed:
 Select the storing interval using (dd:hh) format. In this way, the export will be performed using a back
analysis period of dd:hh time;
 Select the sampling interval for each values of each device that will be selected (of course, it’s
possible to use the “All device” button to have a fast selection);
 Select all the devices that you’d like to export;
 Check if the USB pen drive is correctly inserted on your XWEB usb port;
 Press save button in order to activate the function;
This function always export all the data for each device. The ouput file is a .txt file with a format that can be
quickly imported to excel. In case of error, the XWEB writes a simple error file on the output directory.
The XWEB is able to export the data from its flash memory to USB pen drive without using the configuration
done with previous menu. In fact, by writing a simple text file on the USB pen it’s possible to ask to XWEB
the data you want. The procedure that has to be followed to obtain the data is the following:
 Write on the root directory of your USB key the export.txt file with the following format/syntax:
The file has to be written using group of two lines. INTERVAL and LIST OF DEVICES as described
here below:
INTERVAL: can have two formats. #[h/d] where # is a number and [h/d] is the measurement unit,
the other format is dd/mm/yyyy -- dd/mm/yyyy standing for from – to interval of export. After the
interval of export, you can specify the sampling time in seconds. If the last field is left blank the
default sampling time is 60 seconds;
LIST OF DEVICES
Is a simple list of serial address of the devices separated by comma. If instead of a list of addresses

1,3,5
It exports the data of device with address 1,3 and 5 with for last day with a sampling time of two
minutes


Place the USB pen drive on XWEB USB port and wait till the end of process is ended. If the USB
Pen is provided with a LED, it’ll blink during the data transfer so wait till the LED is always ON to be
sure that the transfer is correctly ended.
Extract the USB pen from the XWEB and place it on your PC to see the data.
1. for each exported device all the enabled values are exported
2. there is a file for every device. The filename is related to the name of the device;
3. the files are placed on a directory named export_AAAAMMGG-HHMMSS and builded
following actual date and hour;
4. the data inside of the file are separated by “|” char in order to be quickly importable on Excel
or Open office calc;
5. First line of each file contains the name of the values separated by the “|” char;
An example of file is the following:

This function shows you all the alarm events detected from the XWEB system. It is also possible to setup a
search filter.

Alarm view and filters
To enter the alarm view, click on “Alarm” -> “Historical” menu.
The Device Alarm Page is divided onto 3 main section: Actions, Device filter and Alarm filter.
The “Alarm Filter” defines which alarm level and which kind of alarm to search.
The “Device Filter” defines the typology and the name of the instrument to search.
The “Action” menu allows the user to decide what action to start: Save on disk in html format, view in the
current window or print alarm.
The system automatically loads all the alarm. The user can filter which one wants to view using “Actual”
or “Last” and insert the number of days back to show.
The alarm description is displayed in table format.
Beware to the status of an alarm:
Active (To column):
Auto (ending column):
Stop Acq. (ending column):
Restart (ending column):
Alarm is still active
Alarm stopped automatically. It means that alarm event is now ended.
Someone has stopped the recording activity
System has been rebooted by someone/something.

Actual view of a device included into the alarm list
The user could be interested in having more and deep information about the actual situation of an
instrument with an active alarm that is included into the alarm list.
That’s why if you click on the description of the instrument itself the XWEB will load a snapshot page
showing all the controller information.

Print the alarm list
Select the “Print” from the “Action” menu situated on the left corner of the alarm page under the Dixell
logo.

interact with the XWEB. Permissions are a powerful tool to avoid accidental system damage and security
holes.
We strongly suggest you to create a user with read only privileges and another one with the ability to change
system behaviour. The third user must be the administrator who should be the only one to be able to interact
with critical system behaviour, such as alarm setup menu or devices add/delete etc.
To modify an existing user you just have to put the correct name and password (by clicking inside the box),
then push on “Modify” button. Default configuration consists of one Administrator.
To allow a user to interact with the unit, please assign him correct rights. To do this check/uncheck the
proper permission. At the end of the procedure you have to confirm the changes by clicking on “apply”

button.
3.9.1 MANAGING THE USERS
You can interact with a user in 3 different ways:
 Setting-up permission.
 Disabling the user (Enabling check box on the top right corner).
 Modify account and password
3.10 TOOLS SECTION
XWEB has a complete set of useful tools to help the user managing in the best way both the monitoring unit
and the controllers connected on the RS 485. Click on “Tools” menu to start using it.
3.10.1 DATA LOG STATUS
One of the most important tools is the “Data log Status”. This window gives you important information
concerning the available amount of memory reserved to store data values. Value “Log” followed by a
percentage is the amount of used memory at the present moment. XWEB will give you a forecast expressed
in days/hours on the duration of the stored data starting back from the last recorded value. The archive is in
FIFO format, so the first data (the oldest one) is also the first to be overwritten. To enlarge this recording time
you can decide which values you really need to store. To do this please click on “Configuration” -> “Devices”
roll-down menu and select a controller. At this point uncheck all the value you do no want to record. In the
following example DI “Defrost Start” is shown but not recorded.
3.10.2 RS 485 TEST
It is possible to make a test on the RS 485 line. Click on “RS 485”. The following window will appear:
1592028000 XWEB300D_500_500D opr GB r2.2.0 2013.08.01.docx
XWEB500/300
99/114
By clicking on “Test” XWEB starts sending data packet to the selected controller. Depending on the number
of sent back packet the percentage is shown in 3 different colours: red (bad connection), yellow (average
connection) and green (good connection). This tool is useful to discover problem on the RS 485 wiring.
3.10.3 SERVER STATUS
Click on “Tools” -> “Server Status”. This window gives you important information about the XWEB status. If
there is some errors, they will be displayed in this section. The user can access this window also from the
home page. The label “Server Status” show you the current status. If there is an error a small icon will
appear. By clicking on it a report windows will appear.
3.10.4 MESSAGE STATUS
Click on “Tools” -> “Message status”. This windows show you the status queue of all messages that have to
be sent by XWEB. If the server did not succeed in sending a message, an error is shown.

Error messages for SMS
a) “SMS not accepted”: failure of commands AT+CMGF=1. This command is executed before an SMS
is sent
b) “sending not correct”: XWEB sent to the modem the mobile number for delivery but the modem
responded with an error. Otherwise XWEB has to send an alarm but its information is no longer
available in XWEB alarm queue.
a) “command not supported”: modem responded with error while setting the body of message

Appendix A: DEVICE ADVANCED SECTION
In this section we describe how you can customize your device regardless its factory setup. We will point out
only the main sections, without describing each fields in deep. Please notice that the page is divided in many
rows. Each of them customizes a particular function of the device itself.
To access this section please stop data reading/recording, then go to “Configuration”->“Devices” roll-down
menu. Here with selection “Actions” roll-down menu choose “Advanced”, then with “Devices” choose the
proper controller.
“Analog Input” section shows you all the analog input that a device can use. These values can be displayed
in decimal or integer values, of course you have to choose the same unit of measurement for both the XWEB
and the instrument. The suffix “-I” means you want to display integer, default value is decimal. The same for
Celsius and Fahrenheit degree. The suffix “-F” means Fahrenheit degree.
Warning: the integer/decimal or °C/°F configuration have to be chosen according to the real setting
of the instruments.
“Digital Input” row need particular attention. The values you find here are the factory defaults, so if you have
made modifications to the device setup, you are requested to apply the same modifications in this menu.
This is very important because all the values stored inside XWEB devices section must be the same as the
ones stored inside the EEPROM of the instrument. A common error for example is to modify “Generic Alarm”
to some other values inside the instrument, than leave the value marked inside Advanced section. XWEB will
send you an alarm every time the switch changes status, even if it is not a generic alarm.
“Device Status” section allows you to customize your instruments, of course the same values have to be set
both on XWEB and the instruments themselves.
“Commands” row is very important. You have to mark same values that you have marked before in the other
section. In order to give XWEB the possibility to send commands to the instruments. This is necessary
because for example if you have changed “Generic Alarm” to “Ausiliary” in “digital Resources” section, then
you have to mark “Aux on” and “Aux off” in “Commands” section to be able to turn on/off the output by

means of the XWEB. Of course you have to do this kind of changes every time you have made some
modifications to the controllers.

C
Cable - Transmission medium of copper wire or optical fiber wrapped in a protective cover.
Client/Server - A networking system in which one or more file servers (Server) provide services; such as
network management, application and centralized data storage for workstations (Clients).
CSMA/CD - Carrier Sense Multiple Access Collision Detection is a network access method in which devices
that are ready to transmit data first check the channel for a carrier. If no carrier is sensed, a device can
transmit. If two devices transmit at once, a collision occurs and each computer backs off and waits a random
amount of time before attempting to retransmit. This is the access method used by Ethernet.
Coaxial Cable - Cable consisting of a single copper conductor in the center surrounded by a plastic layer for
insulation and a braided metal outer shield.
Concentrator - A device that provides a central connection point for cables from workstations, servers, and
peripherals. Most concentrators contain the ability to amplify the electrical signal they receive.
E
E-mail - An electronic mail message sent from a host computer to a remote computer.
End User - Refers to the human executing applications on the workstation.
F
File Server - A computer connected to the network that contains primary files/applications and shares them
as requested with the other computers on the network. If the file server is dedicated for that purpose only, it
is connected to a client/server network. An example of a client/server network is Novell Netware. All the
computers connected to a peer-to-peer network are capable of being the file server. Two examples of peerto-peer networks are LANtastic and Windows for Workgroups.
I
M
ISP (Internet Service Provider) - Company that provide access to internet
Modem (Modulator/Demodulator) - Devices that convert digital and analog signals. Modems allow computer

Appendix D: GPRS CONNECTIVITY (ONLY FOR DIN)
GPRS connectivity and all the associated services are a prerogative of the mobile operator. When selecting
the operator and the price plan bear the following in mind:

the IP address assigned by the mobile network to the XWEB must be public, only in this way XWEB
will be visible from the Internet and the DDNS service

Select a flat plan, that counts volume and not time: the exchanged data for the parameter and graphs
consultation are of a few MB and the connection is preferable to be always on, so to keep the XWEB
always available.

Check both the selected operator coverage and signal quality for the XWEB installation area.
Plan the XWEB use: even if the GPRS connection is more efficient than the GSM modem one (9.6 kb / s),
speed maximum limit is 40 kb/s (upload from XWEB to a web browser)
Therefore, limit as much as possible the use of the layout that involves sending images, simultaneous
access of multiple users to XWEB at the same, downloading large amounts of data.
The mobile network assigns dynamic IP addresses to XWEB (unless you choose price plan with a static IP)
that change over time. XWEB manages DDNS, a service that some operators offer for free, that allows you
to update and keep the IP assigned by the mobile network aligned with a specific name (hostname). Create
for each XWEB, an account at one of these DNS Dynamic operators (DynDns, ChangeIP, NoIP) and assign
to XWEB a hostname (e.g. Myxweb01.homeip.net). In this way the XWEB myxweb.homeip.net will always be
accessible even if your IP changes.

3) Press “Dialup Setup”. In the “Dial-up” section select ‘No dial-up’. Configure the “GPRS configuration”
according to your own operator’s data and to the internet connection that you have. It is advisable to
stipulate a ‘flat’ price plan with your operator, so to have a connection that is available when you connect
in remote. Ask your operator for a public IP.
To access XWEB with a public but dynamic IP, DNS services as “changeip”, “dyndns” or “noip”, can be
used.
