Dataprobe IP-810 - Specifications

iPIO-2, iPIO-8, iPIO-16
Monitor and Control of Digital I/O
1. General Description
The iPIO is a network attached, web enabled digital input and output device. The iPIO can be controlled
and monitored with a standard web browser. Multiple iPIO devices can communicate amongst
themselves to transport I/O information across the network. Each iPIO has controllable form C relays,
and digital inputs.
Each channel of the iPIO is independently configurable, allowing selection of what IP addresses to
deliver to and on what channel. Highly flexible telemetry systems can be developed with these simple
devices.

6. Web Browser Operation
The Status and Control web
page provides real time status
of the inputs, outputs and
remote iPIO unit connections.
The top of the page indicates
the iPIO device the user is
connected to. This location ID
is settable.
Each input, output and remote
device is defined by a user
selectable name. Inputs and
outputs can also be assigned
names for Open and Closed
statuses, as well as
background and text colors for
each.
When logging in with
Administrator rights, the menu
bar below the header will be
displayed. This allows access to the Setup and Administration pages of the unit.
If the iPIO is programmed to communicate with remote units, each remote unit will be displayed in the left
column. Each remote site displays its name and status OK or Fail in green or red. The name is a hotlink to
the IP address of that remote device.
The status will automatically refresh approximately every 2 seconds.

Auto Update feature defines if the
status of this device will be
automatically transmitted to the
remote sites, and if so, how often.
Also set on this page are the
Login Names and Passwords for
the User and Administrator roles.
There are two roles that can be
defined. The user has access
only to the status and control
page. The Administrator also has
access to the setup pages.
7.2.
Network Setup
The iPIO provides two methods
for setting the IP Address


Static
DHCP
Select Static Mode from the drop
down list and fill in the IP
Address, Subnet Mask and
Gateway as provided by your
network administrator. Click save
to save the changes. You will
then be prompted to reboot the
iPIO. Click on the Reboot

iPIO-2816_v140120e
iPIO-2, iPIO-8, iPIO-16 Users Guide
Page 15
reboot and the new IP address will be ready to be accessed.
Selecting DHCP from the IP Setup page allows a DHCP server to provide IP address, Subnet Mask and
Gateway information to the iPIO. Click Save and then Reboot when prompted by the button in the left
column. The iPIO will reboot. After reboot, access the iPIO with the IP address assigned by the DHCP
server. Check your DHCP server to identify the IP address assigned to the iPIO. If no IP address is
assigned by a DHCP server, the original IP address will be retained.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
To restrict web access to secure, encrypted pages, select SSL. Click Save and then Reboot when
prompted. With SSL enabled, access the iPIO using https://
Port Settings
The Network Setup page also allows for changing of the port assignment for HTTP, HTTPS and inter-iPIO
protocols. Dataprobe recommends changing the Web port for units that will be connected to the Internet.
This will minimize the number of hacker attacks that the iPIO will be subject to. If a port other than the
default Port 80 (or port 443 for SSL) is used for web browser access, the port must specifically be used in
the URL when accessing the iPIO. For example, if the Web Port is changed to 9090 then the URL for the
unit would be http://192.168.1.254:9090 or https://192.168.1.254:9090 for SSL.
Default Port Assignments

Telnet
The Telnet setup capabilities can be enabled or disabled with this checkbox
AES Encryption
Pairs of iPIOs can use 128 bit AES encryption to secure status and control messages. To use AES, enter an
AES Passphrase (up to 16 characters) and enable AES with the checkbox. Any additional iPIO that
connects to this device will need to use the same Passphrase as set here. See Remote Setup for entering
the Passphrase of a remote iPIO.
Use DxP Credentials
Older DxP supported devices do not use username and password pairs in the protocol. Uncheck this to
provide backward compatibility if the remote site units do not support U/P pairs.
Connection Timeout
The Telnet and web login will automatically log off the user if no activity is detected for the period of time (in
minutes) specified here. Set to 0 to allow unlimited timeouts, but be sure to log out manually as unlimited
timeout will prevent new users from logging in if the session is not closed manually.

Remote Setup
To allow multiple Dataprobe
products to communicate and
control one another, each device
must be setup to communicate
with the devices that are remote
to it.
Adding a remote will allow the
inputs of this iPIO unit to control
the outputs of another iPIO unit,
or multiple units. Additional
Dataprobe products, like iBoot-G2
series power controller can also
be remotes that are controlled by
this iPIO. To achieve bi-directional
control between two iPIO units,
each must be programmed with
the other as a remote.
To add the first device, click on
Add Device. This will generate
the setup screen for the first
remote. To add additional
remotes, click on Add Device for
each one. Up to 32 remote units
can be programmed.
iPIO-2816_v140120e
iPIO-2, iPIO-8, iPIO-16 Users Guide
Page 19
Remote Name
Enter the name (20 characters max.) to identify the remote unit.
Remote Type
Select the model of the remote device. This setting will allow for the proper entry of variables depending on
remote model.
Link Alarm Relay
One local relay can be designated to provide status of the link between this device and the remote. Different
relays can be assigned to each remote, or one relay can serve as a general purpose alarm for all remotes.
When used, the Alarm relay will be energized (Common to Normally Closed connected) when the link is OK
and de-energized (Common to Normally Open) when an alarm occurs.
Remote Network
Enter the IP Address and Port (if changed from default 9100 when setting up the remote).
AES Encryption can be used to secure communications with the remote. Enter the Passphrase that
matches the remote device, and check the AES checkbox
Remote Relays
Each local input on the iPIO can be used to activate one relay on each remote iPIO unit. Program the
Remote Relays by selecting which remote relay will be controlled by each input. Select the relay
channel number on the remote unit that will be controlled. Select None if the input does not affect any remote
output.
The On Open and On Close setting allow the user to define the action that the remote relay will take when
the input is open or closed. The choices are Open, Close or Pulse – Open and Pulse - Close. If Pulse –
Open or Close is selected, the relay will momentarily take the state chosen (open or closed) for the duration
specified in the Pulse column.
Multiple inputs on the local iPIO can control the same relay on the remote unit. In this case, the remote
relay will switch based on the most recent input state change. It is also possible to have the inputs of the
local iPIO control its own relays, by setting up a remote iPIO with the local IP address.
Click Save and the color Status box will change from red FAIL to green OK to indicate successful
communications between iPIO devices.
The Sync button allows information on all local inputs to be transmitted to the remote iPIO. When the remote
iPIO is set up, use this button to coordinate the local inputs with the remote relays.
iPIO units continually communicate to coordinate inputs and outputs. If one or more remotes are
programmed, the RMT LED on the front of the iPIO will be solid on. If any remotes fail to communicate, the
LED will flash, and the alarm relay (if programmed) will Open.
Click refresh, or refresh your browser window to view the latest remote status.
If the Auto Update feature is enabled on the Device Setup page, the iPIO will periodically transmit its status
to the remote unit. If the On Reconnect feature is enabled, the iPIO will transmit its status whenever the
connection to the remote is established or re-established.
