Introduction
Overview
V2101 embedded computers are based on the Intel Atom Menlow XL x86 processor and feature 2
serial ports, dual Gigabit LAN ports, 4 USB 2.0 hosts, and an SD socket. The V2100 Series offers
both VGA and LVDS outputs, making it particularly well suited for industrial applications, such as
SCADA and factory automation.
The V2101’s 2 serial ports makes it ideal for connecting a wide range of serial devices, and the
dual 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet ports offer a reliable solution for network redundancy, promising
continuous operations for data communication and management. As an added convenience, the
V2101 computers have three DIs and three DOs for connecting digital input/output devices. In
addition, the SD and USB ports provide the V2101 computers with the reliability needed for
industrial applications that require data buffering and storage expansion.
Pre-installed with Windows Embedded Standard 2009, the V2101 Series provides programmers
with a friendly environment for developing sophisticated, bug-free application software at a lower
cost.
All V2101 models support a wide operating temperature range of -40 to 85°C for harsh industrial
environments.
Software Specifications

Changing the Network Settings
The V2101-XPE computer comes with two network interfaces. Both of the default IP addresses
are DHCP. Choose Start Æ Control panel Æ Network Connections to enter the network settings
page. Select the connection and choose Properties on the pop-up menu by right-clicking. You can
specify the IP address manually or by DHCP. In addition, you can disable or enable either one or
both connections with the pop-up menu.
Operating Your V2101-XPE Computer with a Telnet Client
Use a crossover Ethernet cable to connect your development workstation directly to the target
computer, or use a straight-through Ethernet cable to connect the computer to a LAN hub or switch.
Next, use a telnet client on your development workstation to connect to the Telnet console utility
of the target computer. After a connection has been established, type the login name and password
as requested to log on to the computer.
After logging in through the Telnet client, a list of commands will be available for operating the
computer. Use HELP to display all of the commands, or type HELP [command name] to display
extended help for the selected command. Some of these commands, such as DATE and TIME, are
very useful for managing the computer’s system time. Other commands, such as DIR and MKDIR,
are good utilities for file management. For example, to inspect the file structure of the root
directory, type DIR.
NOTE: The default user id is “administrator” and the default password is not set; you need to
create a new password for this account to use this telnet client.
NOTE: There is a connection limitation on using Telnet clients. You are only allowed to create
connections with two Telnet clients at the same time.
