Chapter 1 Introduction
The 460 Gateway lets you control how to manipulate and control data, moving it bi-directionally
across devices with different protocols. Trusted legacy devices can now be connected to a variety
of networks using 460 Gateways. For example, PLCs (including the Twido™ PLC from
Schneider Electric), building managements systems, and energy management devices can
communicate with scales, drives, barcode readers, and sensors of every type. See Figure 1-1
below.
The 460 Gateways are easy to configure using an embedded web page from which you enter the
appropriate network addresses and then define the groups of registers to send/receive data and
the order in which the data is received.

Chapter 2 Installing the 460 Gateway
Before the 460 Gateway can transfer data, you need to do the following tasks:
•
Optionally set jumper switches for RS232, RS485, or CAN operations on the ports (460
EDX only)
•
Connect a personal computer, temporarily, to the 460 Gateway in order to complete the
software setup
•
Make software selections for the Gateway
o After the computer is connected, configure the Communication Modules, starting
on page 8.
o When all the necessary Communication Modules are configured, continue with
Editing the 460 Gateway Network Settings on page 50.
o When you have finished setting up or making any desired changes to the 460
Gateway’s configuration, continue with Making Settings Take Effect on page 52.
•
Install the Gateway hardware
In addition to these tasks, you may need to make some additional changes on the devices to
which you are connecting the 460 Gateway. For example, if you are connecting to a PLC, you
should define tags for sending and receiving data and define ladder logic to clear the data after
the PLC receives data via the 460 Gateway. Other devices may require similar tasks.
Setting jumpers
Note: Skip this section unless you have a 460 EDX Gateway and want Port 0 or Port 1 to
change from the current settings. The factory default port settings on the 460 EDX
Gateway are for Port 0 to be set for RS485 and Port 1 to be set for RS232.
Most 460 Gateways are shipped with port settings already configured. In these cases, please skip
this section and continue on with the following section, Connecting a computer for software
setup on page 5. However, if you have a 460 EDX Gateway, you may want to change these port
settings. Other 460 Gateways cannot be modified to change the port settings. The default
port settings on the 460 EDX Gateway are for Port 0 to be set for RS485 and Port 1 to be set for
RS232. However, you can modify a port to use CAN (or return a port setting to RS 232 or
RS485) by changing the jumpers on the Gateway unit. If you are satisfied with the port settings,
skip this section and continue with the following section. Both ports cannot be set for the same
type of communications.
460 Gateway User Manual
Page 4
Default IP Address – 192.168.0.100
Note: Only one RS232, RS485, or CAN port setting can be active per unit. For example, a
unit cannot have two ports set for RS232 or two ports set for CAN.
To change port settings on the 460 EDX Gateway, use the following steps.
1. No cables should be connected to the Gateway unit. If this unit has been in use and you
are making a change, disconnect the power cable and any communications cables from
the Gateway unit.
2. Remove the two small Phillips-head screws from each long side (no connectors) of the
Gateway unit.
3. Remove the green T-Strip5 connector. Slide the cover off towards the ports. The jumpers
are just behind the ports.
4. Move the jumper shunts to reflect the desired settings. See Figure 2-1.

a. Enter the maximum message length before the 460 Gateway stops receiving a
particular message from the device.
b. Enter a value 10 to 60000 milliseconds to enable the receive character timeout. If
the 460 should never receive messages from the device (printer, sign, etc.), enter 0
to disable this timeout. However, if you want the 460 Gateway to poll a device
periodically regardless of how much data is accumulated, a value (other than 0)
here sends the data and then clears the buffer out after the amount of time you
select. For example, if you enter a value of 1000, the serial device sends data to
the 460 Gateway every 1 second. Even if it was in the middle of the transmission,
all data from the buffer is sent to the 460 Gateway.
c. Using delimiters is the best way to control your data. If the serial device can
output delimiters, select the correct incoming start and/or end delimiter
information for data going from the ASCII device to the 460 Gateway. If the
serial device can process incoming delimiters, select the correct outgoing start
and/or end delimiter information for data going from the 460 Gateway to the
ASCII device. The bytes should NOT be the same for both start and end.
If no delimiters are possible or desired, select Unused from the top of the dropdown menu(s).
If you do not want the start or end delimiters to be sent with the data, check the
Discard all delimiter byte(s) box.
d. Select the port that the device uses to connect to the 460 Gateway.
e. Select the appropriate communications mode.
f. Select the correct transmission settings from the menus.

Chapter 4 General Procedures
This chapter contains the following general information and procedures:
•
Configuring 460 Gateways from a file
•
Changing IP or subnet addresses using either IPSetup.exe or the Real Time Automation
460 Gateway web page
Configuring 460 Gateways from a file
If you need to configure many 460 Gateways with the same or a similar configuration, the
quickest and easiest way to do so is to configure the first 460 Gateway using the steps in
Chapter 1, then save that configuration to a file that you can use to configure the other 460
Gateways.
Use the steps in the following section, Creating a configuration file, to create the initial
configuration file. After you have the desired configuration file, use the following steps in
Uploading a configuration file to additional gateways on page 63 to copy the configuration file
to additional 460 Gateways.
Creating a configuration file If the 460 Gateway is already connected to a personal computer and can access the Real Time
Automation web site (factory set at http://192.168.0.100), skip to step 5.
1.
Connect one end of an Ethernet crossover cable to the 460 Gateway and the other end to
the RJ45 connector on your computer. A red Ethernet crossover cable was shipped with
the 460 Gateway.
2. Insert the power connector to the 460 Gateway
eway and then plug the power cord into a power
source.
3. Your computer needs to be on the same subnet as this 460 Gateway unit. The unit’s
default IP address is 192.168.0.100. Therefore your computer’s IP address must be set at
192.168.0.xxx, where xxx is any number that is not being used by any other device on
your network.
If your computer is using a dynamic IP address (typical), you need to change it to a static
192.168.0.xxx address. Use the following steps to change your computer’s IP address.
a. Go into your Network Setup.

Changing IP or subnet addresses
After the 460 Gateway is setup and installed, you can still change IP or subnet addresses using
one of two methods. The easiest way involves using the IPSetup.exe tool on the User Manuals
and Tools CD shipped with the 460 Gateway. However, if you no longer have the CD that came
with the 460 Gateway, you can still change IP or subnet addresses using the Real Time
Automation 460 Gateway web site.
The IPSetup.exe If you have the User Manuals and Tools CD that was shipped with the 460 Gateway, use the
following steps to change the IP or subnet address. You can run this tool from your desktop, as it
does not install any files.
1. Connect one end of an Ethernet crossover cable to the 460 Gateway and the other end to
the RJ45 connector on your computer. A red Ethernet crossover cable was shipped with
the 460 Gateway. (Or, you can use a regular Ethernet cable connected to a hub or subnet
with the 460 Gateway.)
2. Insert the power connector to the 460 Gateway, and then plug the power cord into a
power source.
3. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive on your computer. Double-click on the Tools
folder.
Three tools display.
For Your Information: If you no longer have the CD that shipped with the 460
Gateway, download the IPSetup.exe at http://www.rtaautomation.com/support
from the Real Time Automation’s website.
4. Double-click on IPSetup.
The Real Time Automation IPSetup screen displays. See Figure 4-10.
