Introduction
•
The infrared connection provides a non-intrusive wireless connection with the
instrument and maintains NEMA4X AND IP66 integrity.
•
No need to get access to the back of the instrument to communicate with the
instrument, no need to take your screw driver to wire the communication cable, no
wiring mistake possible. You can now duplicate an instrument’s configuration,
upload or download a new configuration in a matter of seconds, just by pointing
your Pocket PC in the direction of the instrument.
It takes just a few seconds to upload a configuration from an instrument. You can then
save the configuration file onto your PC or pocket PC for review, modification or
archiving. Furthermore, this software also gives you important maintenance information
on the instrument: instantly get information on the current operating parameters, digital
inputs and alarm status, identify internal or analog input problems.

Double-click/double-tap a configuration to edit. The prompts are organized exactly as on the
instrument itself.
For details on functions and their settings, refer to that instrument’s manual.
If an analog configuration is highlighted with red text or a digital configuration is shown blank,
it means that the stored value is now out of range, either because of previous changes to the
instrument’s configuraton or because of incompatibilities with the configuration set. Change
the configuration to an in-range setting to correct the error.

UDC Ethernet users have an additional Group: Ethernet & Email. You can set up an email to
be sent when a rising edge (off-to-on) alarm is detected. Alarm status is checked every 30
seconds, so only one rising edge will be detected per 30 seconds.
Attention:
-In controllers, updates to Ethernet parameters may take up to 60 seconds to take effect.
After you change the instrument’s IP address, to make it recognized you must execute the
“arp-d” command at a DOS prompt.

3.1.7 Infrared checklist
Check the following before using infrared communications.
Infrared transmitter (Cable or Pocket PC)
-
The Infrared transmitter is pointed directly at the process instrument’s Infrared port.
-
The Infrared transmitter is located no more than 0.3 meters (1 foot) away from the
process instrument.
Process instrument:
-
The process instrument is configured with an Infrared port (Infrared on the UDC2500
is optional; Non Infrared units can be configured using the test jack port, RS485 or
Ethernet).
-
The process instrument’s device address must match the device address in the P.I.E.
Communications Setup.
-
The process instrument’s Infrared port must be enabled through its communications
menu.
-
Any button must be pressed on the process instrument to enable the Infrared port for
4 minutes.
-
There are no obstructions between the Infrared transmitter and the process
instrument.
P.I.E.:
-
There is only one process instrument with the device address selected in the P.I.E.
Communication Setup.
-
The communications mode in the P.I.E. application must be set to Infrared. (Verify
by looking at mode displayed in lower left corner of P.I.E. display.)
Pocket PC:

-
IMPORTANT: The beam checkbox in the Pocket PC must be unchecked. See
Start\Settings\Connection\Beam. Infrared communications will not work if box is
checked.
-

3.1.8 Ethernet Q&A
Q: How can I find the address of my UDC?
A: The Ethernet address information that has been set in the instrument can be retrieved
by using P.I.E. to upload a product configuration upload using IR communication. After
the upload you can view the Ethernet group and see the Ethernet information. An
alternate way is to use P.I.E. and initiate an online configuration through IR
communication. This function does an initial upload of the current configuration from the
instrument and displays the groups. The Ethernet information can be viewed from the
Ethernet group.
The above cannot be done through RS485 communication because when the Ethernet
board is plugged in, the RS485 option is not available.
The default Ethernet information for a UDC as shipped from the factory is IP 10.0.0.2,
Mask 255.255.255.0, Gateway 0.0.0.0.
Q: How can I find the address of my UDA?
The Ethernet address information that has been set in the instrument can be retrieved by
using the UDA front panel. The address is visible in the communication status menu. The
address can also be retrieved by using P.I.E. to upload a product configuration upload
using IR or RS485 communication. After the upload you can view the Ethernet
communication setup group and see the Ethernet information.
An Alternate way is to use the P.I.E. and initiate an online configuration through IR or
RS485 communication. This function does an initial upload of the current configuration
from the instrument and displays the groups. The Ethernet information can be viewed
from the Ethernet communication setup group.
If the Ethernet port is configured for DHCP, then you must use the UDA front panel
communication status menu to view the address.
The default Ethernet information for a factory UDA2182 is:
IP 192.168.1.254
Mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway 1.0.0.0.0
Q: How do I know what IP Address to use?
A: The default IP address provided from the factory is 10.0.0.2 on the UDC and
192.168.1.254 on the UDA2182. Since IP addresses must be unique, you will need to
reset the IP address for multiple instruments or if the instrument is going to be placed on
a LAN. Multiple instruments on a local net could be set at 10.0.0.2, 10.0.0.3, 10.0.0.4,
etc. If you want to put the instrument on a LAN, you need to obtain available IP
addresses from your IT group.
Q: How do I know what Mask to use?
A: The mask on the UDC and UDA is normally set to 255.255.255.0 since the first (3)
numbers in the IP address are typically the same for instruments on the same subnet.

Process Instrument Explorer Configuration Software User Manual

Operations
Q: How do I know what Gateway to use?
A: The gateway information is the IP address of the router which would route the TCP/IP
traffic to the appropriate destination IP address. Every network has a gateway routing
device that holds the routing table for that network which specifies how to route TCP/IP
packets between network devices.
In the P.I.E. and UDC/UDA case, if the PC on which the P.I.E. is running and
UDC/UDA are connected to a LAN, then the gateway should have the IP Address of the
router that manages the LAN subnetwork. In the case of the PC on which the P.I.E. is
running being connected directly to the UDC with a crossed Ethernet cable, then the
gateway IP address can be set to "0.0.0.0". In the case of the PC, on which the P.I.E. is
running, being connected directly to the UDA2182 with a crossed or straight through
Ethernet cable then the Gateway IP Address can be set to 1.0.0.0. The normal procedure
is to copy the first three bytes of the IP address from the PC and set the last byte to 1. For
example, if the IP address of the PC is set to 10.2.3.4 then set the gateway IP address to
be 10.2.3.1.
Q: How do I know what SMTP address to use?
A: The SMTP address is used for outgoing emails. This address is specific to your LAN
configuration and can be obtained from your IT group.
Q: Why can’t I communicate with my controller after I changed the controller’s IP
address?
A: The arp table in your desktop PC needs to be reset by typing “arp-d” in the DOS
command window. Also, changes to Ethernet parameters may take up to 60 seconds to
take effect.
