1. If the IPW-1A adaptor is not on the same LAN or
network segment as the PC master station, ensure
that the IPW-1A has been pre-programmed with the
proper connection settings prior to physical adaptor
installation. See the CommuniCenter Operations
manual (included on CD with IPW-1A).
2. Wire the sub station to the proper connector on the
IPW-1A, and connect to the network using the
standard RJ-45 jack. Wiring from the sub station to
the IPW-1A should be a 2-conductor, shielded cable.
Connect the PT-1211C power supply included to the
power input connector.
Note:
Contact rated at 30V, 1A.

Mounting Instructions:
1-5/8"
1. Mount the IPW-1A adaptor in a controlled area or in an enclosure suitable to
the installation environment. The IPW-1A chassis is neither vandal resistant
nor weather resistant. Secure the provided mounting bracket and then slide
the IPW-1A onto the bracket as shown. If mounting the unit on a shelf, attach
the 4 rubber feet that are included.

3 CommuniCenter SOFTWARE INSTALLATION
1. Load the software onto the PC to be used as a master station. Insert the CD (included with IPW-1A) or download the
latest version from the Aiphone website (www.aiphone.com).
2. Install the CommuniCenter software by following the on-screen prompts, or by executing “setup.exe” to begin the
installation process.
3. IPW-1A adaptors within the same broadcast domain as the PC will appear in the sub station location list. Consult the
CommuniCenter Operation manual document for further software functionality and configuration information.
NOTE – If installing system over a WAN please refer to the CommuniCenter Operation manual.

4 STATION SET-UP
DHCP Enabled:
·
·
·
An IP address will automatically be assigned to each IPW-1A with the default ID# as 0 and Location Name left
blank.
Right click on each station to open the drop down box, and select Settings. This will open the Hardware
Configuration tool. Give each adaptor a unique ID# along with a unique Location Name.
It is recommended that a password be set for each adaptor. This password can be the same for all adaptors in the
LAN if you wish. To set the password, right click on the device and select Launch in browser. Under Security
Settings, enter a password of your choosing in the Set Password field and select Apply. Once set, this password
must be entered before any changes can be made in the Hardware Configuration tool, or web interface.
5 HARDWARE DIAGNOSTICS
RED and GREEN LEDs next to RS-232 Serial Port
Unit powering up:
· While the unit is searching for its IP address, the Red LED and Green LED will blink alternately. In the absence of a
DHCP server any network activity during this time should allow it to get an IP address, such as opening a web
browser.
· Upon finding its IP address, the IPW-1A will use SonicIP to verbally announce that address. At this time the Red
LED will blink.
· If an error is detected, the Red LED will remain on, then the Green LED will blink three or five times depending on
the error. Upon blinking the error message, the unit will reset itself. It will blink five times if the firmware is corrupt or
if there is an IP address conflict. It will blink three times if the network hardware could not be initialized, or if there is
a corrupt MAC address.

Device running / normal operation:
· During normal operation, the Green LED will remain on while the Red LED will remain off.
Pushing the reset button:
· Upon pressing the reset button, the Green LED and Red LED will remain on. If the reset button is held for 10
seconds or more, the Green LED will remain lit and the Red LED will blink, resetting the unit to factory defaults.
