Connecting the MS-Connect 210 to a Multidrop Network
Once you have a reader connected to the MS-Connect 210 by RS-232, you have the
option of connecting the MS-Connect 210 and reader to a Multidrop network.
Important: Before
connecting to a
Multidrop network,
be sure that all
four switches at

Connecting the MS-Connect 210 to Ethernet
Once you have a reader connected to the MS-Connect 210 by RS-232, you have the
option of connecting the MS-Connect 210 and reader to Ethernet.
The Optional Ethernet Module converts RS-232 to Ethernet for readers without embedded Ethernet.
Important: Before connecting to Ethernet using the Reader Ethernet port, be sure that all four switches
at SW7 are in the DOWN position. This opens the circuits to create a pass through condition.
The Reader Ethernet port is intended for readers that have embedded Ethernet (Microscan’s Quadrus EZ,
for example).
See Chapter 2, Using Ethernet, for more detail about how to configure the MS-Connect 210
for Ethernet operation.

The MS-Connect 210 supports EtherNet/IP™, an industrial communications protocol
based on the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP™). EtherNet/IP can handle large amounts
of data at high speeds, and it typically employs a star topology, making it easy to set up
and maintain network communication over a wide area. An EtherNet/IP network can
support several kinds of communication nodes, including mainframes, PCs, I/O devices
and adapters, robots, and PLCs.
This section describes how to configure the MS-Connect 210 for use with EtherNet/IP, as

Using Ethernet
Configuring the Ethernet Port
The MS-Connect 210’s Ethernet Port behaves as an EtherNet/IP or TCP server device
capable of communicating with one or more serial devices. The port is identified as an
EtherNet/IP communication adapter. The interface is designed to support remote serial
transmit and receive using Explicit and I/O messaging. The port converts EtherNet/IP
communication from TCP/IP and UDP to the serial interface.
The Ethernet Port has the following features:
• Supports one EtherNet/IP I/O connection and two EtherNet/IP TCP connections.
• Serial buffer status updated on the I/O connection.
• Serial master command-response handling with one request.
• Packing parameters available in each read request.
• Serial-configurable and Telnet-configurable.
• Internal TFTP server to upload new firmware.
• Supports BOOTP.
Configurable Ethernet Port Parameters
The Ethernet Port is both serially configurable and Telnet-configurable. The configurable
parameters are:
Network
• IP Address
• Network Mask
• Gateway IP Address
Serial
• Interface (RS-232 or RS-422/485 4-wire and 2-wire)
• Baud Rate
• Data Format (Data Bits, Parity, Stop Bits)
• Flow Control
Serial operation is controlled by parameters of the serial “read” and “write” commands.

Configuring the Ethernet Port
Ethernet Port Configuration Tools
The following tools are necessary for configuring the MS-Connect 210’s Ethernet Port:
• BOOTP Server — The Ethernet Port initially powers on and attempts to obtain an IP
address using BOOTP. If no BOOTP server responds, the Ethernet Port will revert to a
default IP address.
Note: To configure an IP address using a PC as a DHCP/BOOTP server, download the
free Allen-Bradley DHCP/BOOTP Utility from this location:
http://www.ab.com/networks/bootp.html
• EtherNet/IP Messaging Tool — This can be a PLC or software tool, and must be capable
of establishing an explicit messaging connection and sending Get_Attribute_Single and
Set_Attribute_Single EtherNet/IP explicit messages.
• Microscan’s ESP Software or Telnet communication software for configuration.
• DeviceInstaller — This firmware is compatible with the Lantronix DeviceInstaller tool for
device discovery (Search) and Telnet. DeviceInstaller may be used instead of ESP or
Telnet for configuration purposes.
Note: Lantronix also offers a COM Port Redirector for applications that require data to
be sent over an Ethernet network using TCP/IP instead of the local port. The COM Port
Redirector can be downloaded from this location:
http://www.lantronix.com/device-networking/utilities-tools/com-port-redirector.html
• A terminal emulation or serial communication tool such as HyperTerminal or ESP.
• TFTP client software — Required to upload new firmware.

Serial Configuration Menu
The MS-Connect 210 Ethernet Port’s custom firmware allows the user to access the
Serial Configuration Menu from Telnet at port 9999 (see Ethernet Port Operation), or from
the RS-232 serial port.
To access the Serial Configuration Menu via the serial port:
At power-on, if the module receives a series of three “x” characters at 9600-8-N-1, the
menu is activated.
The menu allows the user to configure the following:
• Network IP, Subnet, Gateway, and Tunneling TCP Port
• UART bps, data, parity, stop bits
Dual Mode Connections: Raw tcpserial and EtherNet/IP
Both raw tcpserial and EtherNet/IP connections are available on different TCP ports. The
EtherNet/IP port numbers are defined by that standard. The raw tcpserial port number is
configurable.
Parameter

the Postamble.
Postamble String
One to four ASCII characters, 0x01 to 0xFF. Do not use NUL (0x00).
Send Postamble
When enabled, the Postamble string is sent to the Ethernet host.
When disabled, the Postamble string is not sent to the Ethernet host.
Receive Timeout (Total Receive Timeout)
Receive Timeout is the time the host is willing to wait for the total Receive Length. The
module is guaranteed to respond at the end of the timeout whether or not any data has
been received. This ensures a deterministic response time from the module, which helps
the host sustain a consistent polling rate.
This value is definable for a range of 0 to 1000 ms in 1 ms increments. A setting of 0 disables
the timeout, causing the module to respond immediately.
Parameter
Timeout (in milliseconds)
Default Setting
Always specified
Optional Setting
0 to 1000
0 = Immediate response
Receive Idle Timeout (Intercharacter Receive Timeout)
Idle Timeout is the time the host is willing to wait once data is available. Idle Timeout is
useful if a time gap between serial bytes defines the end of a packet.
Idle Timeout is definable for a range of 0 to 255 ms in 1 ms increments. If 0, the Ethernet
module responds immediately once data is available. To be effective, the Idle Timeout
must be shorter than the Receive Timeout. If 255, the Idle Timeout is disabled and the
Ethernet module will wait for the Receive Timeout before responding.
Parameter
Idle Timeout (in milliseconds)
Default Setting

Optional Setting
0 to 255
0 = Immediate response with any data
255 = Disabled (Wait until Receive Timeout)

space is available for the maximum response data.
The Send_with_Response service is the most flexible, and can supply data in both the
command and response. This service is useful for sending a serial command and waiting
for a serial response based on a defined protocol.
All UINTs are little-endian, with the least significant byte or USINT sent first, followed by
the most significant byte.

EtherNet/IP Serial Interface (Class 0x68)
Send Length
This parameter specifies the length of the send data. The maximum number of bytes that
can be sent in one message is 470 bytes.
Receive Length
This parameter specifies the largest amount of receive data the host can accept. It is only
effective in the Send_with_Response service. In a Send_with_Response or
Get_Attribute_Single reply it indicates the number of data bytes actually included in the
message. The Get_Attribute_Single reply will contain all the bytes available in the receive
queue up to the maximum. The maximum number of bytes that can be received in one
message is 470 bytes.
Receive Idle Timeout
This parameter specifies the longest amount of idle time in milliseconds (ms) the host is
willing to wait once any data is available. It is only effective in the Send_with_Response
service. For the Get_Attribute_Single service this value is assumed to be 0. A value of 0 is
used for immediate idle timeout and the service will reply immediately after data is available.
A value of 255 (FF in hex) disables the idle timeout. In a Send_with_Response reply it
indicates the number of milliseconds of idle time the firmware actually waited for additional
receive data.

TFTP Services
TFTP Services
The Ethernet Port contains an embedded TFTP server that can be used to update the
Ethernet Port firmware. The TFTP server only supports standard TFTP, not Extended
TFTP.
Free TFTP client software is available at http://www.weird-solutions.com/.
When the server requests transmission of a packet, the TFTP client transmits the next
packet’s data using the block number of the packet requested for re-transmission. Therefore,
the server accepts it as the re-transmitted data, since the block numbers match. Re-transmission
attempts occur only when using the Ethernet Port on a half-duplex hub with other network
traffic present. The connection is extremely reliable over a full-duplex switch.
Firmware Upload
Use a TFTP client to upload firmware. The firmware file must be a valid DSTniSPB (Special
Program Binary) file with the “.spb” extension. Currently, any file name is accepted. The
file’s first TFTP packet contains the SPB header and checksum information, which is validated
before any data is written to flash. Note that due to RAM limitation in the Ethernet Port, the
firmware file must be written to flash as the TFTP packets are received — one by one.
Therefore, it is important to allow a firmware file enough time to upload completely before
resetting the target Ethernet Port of closing the TFTP client. Once the header is validated
and the upload begins, the old firmware is already being overwritten. Canceling the transfer
before completion will result in corrupt firmware that will not load after the Ethernet Port is
reset. If an error occurs during the transfer, DO NOT reset the Ethernet Port. Remedy the
problem described in the TFTP error message and then attempt the upload again. A
subsequent version of firmware will contain the capability for recovery from a corrupt state
via an Ethernet boot. The current version supports recovery by loading firmware over the
serial port.

Appendix D — Star Network Topology
A star network is a local area network (LAN) that directly connects multiple workstations,
or nodes, to a central computer. All workstations on the network are indirectly connected
to each other through the central computer.
Star networks allow multiple workstations to communicate from scattered locations
throughout a large physical area. The illustration below shows a simplified model of a star
topology. The large center sphere represents the central computer, and the five smaller
spheres represent workstations on the network. The straight lines represent cabling.
workstations
workstations
central computer
One of the main advantages of the star network topology commonly used in EtherNet/IP is
that a cable failure isolates a single workstation instead of affecting the entire network. In
addition, the isolation of a single node makes the diagnostic process relatively simple.

Interface Standards
Appendix E — Interface Standards
RS-232
RS-232 defines an interface between two devices such as, for example, the wiring box
and a host computer. It differs from the other interfaces by dedicating individual pins to
specific functions and by requiring both devices to share a common ground line. Since
both device chassis are connected to a common ground, a ground loop potential and the
possibility of noise interference exists. Therefore cable lengths are limited to a maximum
of 50 feet (15.24 m). Despite being the most limited, this interface is used frequently
because of the large installed base of RS-232 equipment.
RS-422
RS-422, unlike RS-232, measures signals deferentially; that is, the receiver looks at the
potentials between the two receive (or transmit) wires rather than the potential between
signal and ground. As a result, cables, if shielded, can be up to 4,000 feet (1,219m) in
length. Like RS-232, RS-422 communication is designed for only two devices on a single
line and must have a common ground. It can be used wherever RS-232 is used.
RS-485
RS-485, like RS-422, can transmit up to 4,000 feet (1,219 m) using differential voltages.
Unlike RS-422, its transmitters are turned off until a request for data is received from the
host. RS-485 is used exclusively in Multidrop configuration.
Ethernet
Ethernet is supported for 10/100M, TCP/IP, UDP, and EtherNet/IP. A 6-byte address is
used, which is divided into a 3-byte vendor ID and a 3-byte vendor-defined field. Ethernet
manufacturers are assigned a unique vendor ID, and are then responsible for insuring that
all of their devices have unique addresses in the last 3 bytes.

Glossary of Terms
Appendix G — Glossary of Terms
Aux RS-232—The connection between a reader’s auxiliary port and a host. The MS-Connect
210 passes the RS-232 signal through, creating a condition in which the host’s RX/TX is
connected directly to the reader.
Baud Rate—The number of discrete signal events per second. Bits per second.
Connector—Physical device (plug or socket) on a device or cable to provide in/out connectivity
for various circuits and pins.
Data Bits—The number of bits used to represent one character of data output.
Decode—A Good Read. The successful capture and output of the information encoded in
a symbol.
Discrete I/O—Inputs and outputs characterized by discrete signal transitions from one
voltage level to another so that digital switching can occur.
Firmware—Software hard-coded in non-volatile memory.
Good Read—A decode. The successful capture and output of the information encoded in
a symbol.
Host—A computer, PLC (Programmable Logic Controller), or other device that is used to
execute commands and to process data and discrete signals.
Host RS-232—Enables a reader to communicate with a host although they are not directly
connected. The reader is routed through the MS-Connect 210, and then to the host.
Host RS-422—The RS-422 connection between the MS-Connect 210 and the host. The
MS-Connect 210 converts the RS-232 interface to RS-422 between the reader and the
host.
Input—A channel or communications line. The decoded data or discrete signal that is
received by a device.
LED (Light-Emitting Diode)—Often used as a performance indicator, as on the exterior of
the MS-Connect 210.
Master Symbol—A symbol whose data is stored in a reader and compared to other
symbols in an application as they are decoded. Useful in applications that require sortation
and routing.
Matchcode—A method of comparing current decoded symbol data against stored master
symbol data. Useful in applications that require sortation and routing.
Micro-Change—A threaded, sealed connector that provides secure cabling in industrial
and automation environments.
New Master—A condition in which a reader decodes and stores a new master symbol in
an application using matchcode.
No Read—A condition in which a reader fails to decode a candidate symbol.
Normally Closed—A discrete output state that is only active when open.
Normally Open—A discrete output state that is only active when closed.

Appendices
Opto-isolation—The transfer of signals between elements of a circuit (typically a transmitter
and receiver) while keeping the elements electrically isolated. An example of opto-isolation
is the relationship of an LED and a light sensor, separated from each other so that light
can travel across a barrier but electrical current cannot.
Output—A channel or communications line. The data or discrete signals that are transmitted
or displayed by a device.
Parity—An error detection routine in which one data bit in each character is set to 1 or 0
so that the total number of 1s in the data field is even or odd.
Port—Logic circuit for receiving and transmitting data. (One or more ports may be
included within a single connector.)
Protocol—The rules for communication between devices, providing a means to control
the orderly flow of information between linked devices.
Read Cycle—A pre-defined period of time during which a reader will attempt to capture
symbol data.
RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances)—A directive that restricts the use of lead,
mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and polybrominated
diphenyl ether (PBDE) in the manufacture of certain types of electronic and electrical
equipment.
Signal—A transmission of analog or digital information, electrical current, voltage, or
another specific quantity, that can be varied in such a way that it conveys information from
one point to another.
Symbology—A symbol type, such as Code 39 or Code 128, with special rules to define
the widths and positions of bars (or 2D modules) and spaces to represent specific numeric
or alphanumeric information.
Terminal Block—An insulated block on a printed circuit board (PCB) that secures two or
more wires together using a clamping device (usually screws or spring clips).
Topology—The arrangement of a network, including communication nodes and connection
lines.
Trigger—A signal, transition, or character string that initiates a read cycle.
UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter)—A hardware device that converts
bytes of data to and from bit streams represented as binary electrical impulses. Typically
used with other communication standards, such as RS-232.
VFD (Vacuum Fluourescent Display)—A very bright type of display (brighter than a liquid
crystal display) often used on consumer electronics. The MS-Connect 210’s display is a
VFD.
Watchdog—A hardware timing device that restores the normal operation of a computer
system (the display driver, in the case of the MS-Connect 210) if it stops functioning properly.
WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)—A directive that requires manufacturers
of electrical and electronic equipment to take responsibility for the disposal of that equipment.
