Setting Up the LAN Interface
This chapter describes how to configure the LAN interface for an Agilent 1200 Series LC
system. For stable communication with the Xcalibur data system, one device in the Agilent
1200 Series LC system must have either an on-board LAN interface or an Agilent G1369A
LAN card. In addition, the initialization mode for the LAN interface must use a stored IP
address.
Contents
• Step 1: Determining the Type and Location of the LAN Interface
• Step 2: Setting Up the LAN Interface for a Telnet Session
• Step 3: Setting the Stored TCP/IP Address with a Telnet Session
• Step 4: Setting Up the LAN Interface to Use a Stored IP Address
Step 1: Determining the Type and Location of the LAN Interface
Agilent provides two types of LAN interfaces: an on-board LAN interface that can be ordered
as part of an instrument and the Agilent G1369A LAN card that can be ordered separately.
IMPORTANT Do not install more than one LAN card in the Agilent 1200 Series LC
system. If one of the devices in the Agilent 1200 Series LC system includes an on-board
LAN communication interface, do not install a LAN card.
Y To determine which device contains the LAN interface
1. Check the back panels of the devices in the Agilent 1200 Series stack. One of the devices
must contain either an on-board LAN interface or an Agilent G1369A LAN card.
Figure 3 shows the back panel location of the Agilent LAN interface.

2 Setting Up the LAN Interface
Step 2: Setting Up the LAN Interface for a Telnet Session
Step 2: Setting Up the LAN Interface for a Telnet Session
Before you initiate a Telnet session with the Agilent 1200 Series LAN interface, set up the
LAN to use the default IP address for the initialization mode.
The initialization mode is set with three toggle switches. If your Agilent LC contains an
on-board LAN interface, these switches (switches 6, 7, and 8 of the configuration panel) are
located on the back panel of the instrument that has the interface (see Figure 4). If your
Agilent LC contains an Agilent G1369A LAN card, these switches are located on the LAN
card (see Figure 5).
Y To set up the on-board LAN interface to use the default IP address
Set the initialization switches as follows and as shown in Figure 4:

Y To set up the Agilent G1369 A LAN card to use the default IP address
1. Turn off the power to all the Agilent LC modules.
2. Disconnect the device that contains the G1369A LAN card from line power.
CAUTION To avoid an electric shock, always turn off an Agilent module and unplug
it from line power before you remove its cover.

3. If an Ethernet cable is connected to the Ethernet port, disconnect the cable.
4. Ensure that you are wearing ESD protection.
CAUTION To prevent damage to an instrument, always use ESD protection when
handling electronic boards and components.
5. Remove the LAN card from the device (refer to the Agilent G1360A LAN Interface User
Manual).
The Agilent G1369A LAN card has a configuration switch that can be configured for
four initialization modes. The card is shipped with all eight switches set to the Off
position, which is the Bootp initialization mode (Figure 5).

With these switch settings, the LAN card uses the factory default settings to enable a
TCP/IP connection to the LAN interface with a Telnet session. The default settings are
IP address 192.168.254.11 and subnet mask 255.255.0.0.
7. Reinsert the G1369A LAN card and power on the devices in the Agilent1200 LC Stack.
8. Using a category 5 Ethernet cable, connect the G1369A LAN card directly to the data
system computer.

Step 3: Setting the Stored TCP/IP Address with a Telnet Session
Step 3: Setting the Stored TCP/IP Address with a Telnet Session
For an LC/MS system that includes Agilent 1200 Series LC modules and a Thermo Scientific
mass spectrometer, the IP address for the Agilent LAN interface must be set to 172.16.0.102.
Y To set the stored TCP/IP address for the LAN interface to 172.16.0.102
1. Set up the LAN interface initialization switches so that the LAN interface uses the default
IP address (see “Step 2: Setting Up the LAN Interface for a Telnet Session” on page 7).
2. Ensure that the LAN interface is connected to the data system computer network card
labeled Surveyor MS.
3. Set the TCP/IP address for the data system computer network card to the following:
IP address
192.168.254.100
Subnet mask
255.255.0.0
Note During this procedure, the MS detector temporarily loses communication with
the Xcalibur data system.

When you specify the configuration options for the Agilent 1200 Series LC system, you
specify the IP address for the entire stack.
You enter the stack IP address for the Agilent 1200 Series LC system when you configure the
devices. Once you enter the stack IP address for one device, this IP address appears in the
configuration dialog box for each connected device.
Table 3 lists the IP address for an LC/MS system with a Thermo Scientific mass spectrometer.
IMPORTANT To maintain stable communication with the Xcalibur data system, the
Agilent LAN interface must be set up to use a stored IP address. For information on
configuring the Agilent LAN interface to use a stored IP address, see Chapter 2, “Setting
Up the LAN Interface.”

Installing the External Contact Interface Board
To send a trigger signal from the Agilent LC system to a Thermo Scientific mass spectrometer,
the Agilent 1200 Series pump or autosampler must have an external contact interface board.
Refer to the manuals supplied with the Agilent 1200 Series devices for information on
ordering the BCD board.
Y To install the external contact interface board
1. Turn off the power to the device by placing the power switch in the Off position
(Figure 18).
CAUTION To avoid electric shock, unplug the power cable that connects the Agilent
device to line power. After you turn the power switch to the Off position, the power
supply continues to draw current.

Connecting the External Contact Trigger Cable
Connecting the External Contact Trigger Cable
An external contact trigger cable relays the start signal from the Agilent 1200 Series device to
the Thermo Scientific mass spectrometer. One end of the cable has a DB15 connector and the
other end of the cable has a set of exposed wires.
Note The instrument control application for the Thermo Scientific mass spectrometer
must be compatible with the LC Devices instrument control application, and the
instrument control applications must be compatible with the Xcalibur application
installed on your data system computer.
Y To connect the external contact trigger cable to the Agilent device and the mass
spectrometer
1. If you have not already done so, install the external contact interface board.
See Chapter 4, “Installing the External Contact Interface Board.”
2. Connect the white wire to the Start In+ pin and the brown wire to the Start In– pin on
the I/O panel of the mass spectrometer (see Figure 21).
3. Connect the DB15 connector to the RELAY CONTACTS receptacle located on the

• “Connecting the External Contact Trigger Cable” on page 29
Note Instrument methods contain the contact closure signals (to trigger data acquisition),
the chromatographic conditions, and the mass spectrometer settings for an LC/MS
application.
Y To trigger data acquisition during a run
