
Configuring Ethernet Communications
Unpacking and Inspection
Upon receiving your RXi Box IPC, carefully inspect all shipping containers for damage. If
any part of the system is damaged, notify the carrier immediately. The damaged shipping
container should be saved as evidence for inspection by the carrier.
As the consignee, it is your responsibility to register a claim with the carrier for
damage incurred during shipment. However, we will fully cooperate with you, should
such action be necessary.
After unpacking the Box IPC, record all serial numbers. Serial numbers are required
if you need to contact Customer Care during the warranty period. All shipping
containers and all packing material should be saved should it be necessary to
transport or ship any part of the system.
Verify that all components of the system have been received and that they agree with
your order. If the system received does not agree with your order, contact Customer
Care. If you need technical help, contact Technical Support. For phone numbers and
email addresses, see the “Contact Information” page in the front of this manual.
Before you attempt to power up the IPC for the first time, inspect the unit for loose or
damaged components. If damage is observed (for example, in the form of bent
component leads or loose components), contact GE Intelligent Platforms for additional
instructions. Depending on the severity of the damage, it may be necessary to return the
product to the factory for repair.
Do not apply power to the unit if it has visible damage. Applying power to a unit with
damaged components may cause additional damage.

Configuring Ethernet Network Communications
Before configuring your industrial computer for operation on a network, consult your
network administrator. Duplicate TCP/IP addresses and duplicate computer names on the
same network can cause network problems.
Default Factory settings are to obtain an IP address automatically
1. For both ports, if necessary, use the operating system’s network configuration tool to
change the IP address and subnet mask from the factory settings to the correct
settings for your network. If your network's IP addresses are controlled by a DNS
server, change the setting from Specify an IP address to obtain an IP address from a
DNS Server.
Port
Network Adapter Name
Ethernet 1
VIA Velocity
Ethernet 2
Intel 82574L
2. When prompted by the operating system, restart the IPC.
3. Connect the IPC to your Ethernet network.
Note: For Ethernet port and cabling information, refer to chapter 4.
Pinging TCP/IP Ethernet Interfaces on the Network
PING (Packet InterNet Grouper) is the name of a program used on TCP/IP networks to
test reachability of destinations by sending them an ICMP echo request message and
waiting for a reply. Most nodes on TCP/IP networks, including the PACSystems Ethernet
Interface, implement a PING command.
You should ping each installed Ethernet device. When the Ethernet device responds to
the ping, it verifies that the device is operational and configured properly.
Pinging the Ethernet Interface from a UNIX Host or Computer Running TCP/IP Software
A ping command can be executed from a UNIX host or computer running TCP/IP (most
TCP/IP communications software provides a ping command) or from another Ethernet
device. When using a computer or UNIX host, you can refer to the documentation for the
ping command, but in general all that is required is the IP address of the remote host as a
parameter to the ping command. For example, at the command prompt type:
ping 10.0.0.1
Determining if an IP Address is Already Being Used
Note: This method does not guarantee that an IP address is not duplicated. It will not
detect a device that is configured with the same IP address if it is temporarily off the
network.
It is very important not to duplicate IP addresses. To determine if another node on the
network is using the same IP address:
1. Disconnect your industrial computer from the LAN.
2. Ping the disconnected industrial computer’s IP address. If you get an answer to the
ping, the chosen IP address is already in use by another node. You must correct this
situation by assigning a unique IP address.

Shutting Down the Computer
Caution
For ICRXIBN7xxxxx Models, to avoid damaging files, always shut
down Windows software before removing power from the IPC.
Caution
For ICRXIBN7xxxxx Models, do not disconnect external devices,
such as a flash drive or external DVD drive without first using the
Windows Safely Remove Hardware feature to eject the device.
Failure to observe this precaution could result in damage to data.
1. To shut down the IPC, press the Power On/Off switch briefly (between 100ms and
4 seconds), or select Shut Down from the Windows Start menu.
This provides a controlled shutdown of the operating system before removing
power from the system. The status indicator stays solid green while the IPC is
shutting down and then turns off when the IPC has finished powering down.
2. To completely shut down the IPC, turn off or remove the power supplying the IPC.
Disabling Operating System Shutdown (ICRXIBN7xxxxx Models)
The current On/Off button operation requires only a 100ms press to begin a controlled
Windows shutdown. You can change this setting in Windows to require pressing the
On/Off switch for 4 seconds to immediately perform a hard shutdown that forces the unit
off without first shutting down Windows. This provides some protection against unplanned
shutdowns caused by accidentally pressing the switch. To totally disable power off, you
can use the hardware switch setting as noted below.
If a hard shutdown is acceptable, you can change the OFF button to a 4 second press
time through Windows 7 settings as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Note:
2-4
Start the Windows 7 Control Panel.
Select Hardware and Sound section (if displayed).
Select Power Options.
Select Choose what the power buttons do.
Change the When I press the power button selection to Do Nothing.
Save the changes.
To totally disable power off, you can set a switch that is located on the underside
of the front panel. This disables the ability to shut down the IPC using the On/Off
switch and prevents unplanned shutdowns caused by accidentally pressing the
On/Off switch. For more information, see “Disabling the Off Switch” in chapter 3.

This chapter describes the procedures for the safe location and securing of the
RXi Box IPC.
Note:
The proper method for removing power from the unit is to switch off power at the
circuit breaker.
Installation Guidelines
The RXi Box IPC can be mounted on a DIN rail using the optional Backplate
(ICRXIACCBPL) or directly onto a panel. Mounting methods are described on pages 3-4
through 3-9.
■
The IPC must be mounted with its cooling fins vertical to ensure adequate airflow.
■
The panel should be capable of supporting the weight of the industrial computer
without distortion to the panel.
Adequate airflow around the exterior of the unit is essential to maintain safe interior
temperature of the unit. Inlets and outlets must not be obstructed. For details, see
page 3-3.
You may need to allow more space for installation of cables and connectors than what
is required for heat dissipation. To avoid impacting mechanical reliability and signal
quality, cable installation must comply with the minimum bend radius specified by the
cable manufacturer.
■
■
GFK-2785B
3-1
3
Grounding
Note:


These grounding connections serve as a path for reducing noise interference and
radiated emissions and are required for the IPC to comply with the standards
identified in Appendix A.
The DIN rail or panel the IPC is mounted on must have a safety ground connection to
2
protective earth. This ground wire must be at least #16 AWG (1.31mm ) and should
be as short as possible.
If using the ICRXIACCBPL to mount the Box IPC, add a ground wire from the M8
threaded hole on the metal DIN Backplate (M8 screw included) to protective earth.
The frame ground connection on the power plug must be a 16 to 28 AWG
2
(1.31to 0.08mm ) wire with shortest possible length. It is recommended that these
ground wires terminate in a star wiring pattern at the same grounding point.
Mounting Orientation
The cooling fins on the back of the IPC must be vertical. However the unit can be
mounted with the front panel connectors oriented either up or down.

Replacing the RTC Battery
The real-time clock is backed up by a lithium coin cell battery, IC690ACC001. The RTC
battery has an estimated life of 5 years and must be replaced every 5 years on a regular
maintenance schedule. There are no diagnostics or indicators to monitor RTC battery
status.
If the RTC battery fails, the CPU date and time is reset to 12:00 AM, 01-01-2008 at
startup. The CPU operates with a failed or missing RTC battery; however the initial CPU
TOD clock information will be incorrect.
Caution
To avoid damage from electrostatic discharge, adhere to the
following precautions when opening the IPC enclosure:

Wear a properly functioning antistatic strap and be sure that you
are fully grounded. Never touch any components inside the IPC
unless you are wearing an antistatic strap.

The IPC should be placed on a static-safe surface, facilitated by
antistatic mats.

Extra caution should be taken in cold, dry weather, when static
charges can easily build up.
You will need the following:
One flat (or large Phillips) screwdriver
One small Phillips screwdriver
IC690ACC001 battery
1. Remove power from the IPC by disconnecting the power cable.
2. Loosen the four captive screws on the IPC’s front panel and remove the

Ethernet Communication Ports
The IPC provides two RJ-45 Ethernet network port
connectors that support 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and
1000BASE-T communications. Either or both of these
ports may be attached to other Ethernet devices. Each
port automatically senses the data rate (10, 100 or
1000Mbps), duplex (half duplex or full duplex), and
cabling arrangement (straight through or crossover) of
the attached link.
ACTIVITY
LED
LINK
LED
Pin 1
Caution
The two ports on the Ethernet Interface must not be connected,
directly or indirectly to the same device. The hub or switch
connections in an Ethernet network must form a tree, otherwise
duplication of packets may result.
Ethernet Media
The IPC can operate on 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX or 1000BASE-T media via its network
ports. All three arrangements can use up to 100m of twisted pair cable between each
node and a switch, hub, or repeater.
Note:
For all three types, shielded twisted pair (STP) cable is required to maintain
CE compliance.
10BASE-T: Two pairs of wire are used, one for transmission, and the other for receive.
100BASE-TX: Two pairs of wire are used, one for transmission, and the other for receive.
1000BASE-T: Four pairs of wire are used for simultaneous transmission and receive in
both directions.

Recovering from an Overtemperature Shutdown (All Models)
If the Box IPC overheats, it will shut down to protect critical components. When this
happens, the Overtemp LED will blink on red and then shut off quickly while the entire unit
shuts down. The Power On/Off LED turns off at the same time.
To recover, let the Box IPC cool and then press the Power On/Off button to restart. The
Box IPC will return immediately to what it was doing when shutdown occurred. If you
initiate a complete power cycle instead of restarting immediately, the Box IPC performs
the normal power up cycle.
