Dolphin Net Base
Quick Start Guide
Introduction
The Net Base enables up to four mobile computers to communicate with
a host device over an Ethernet network.
!
We recommend use of Hand Held Products peripherals, power cables, and
power adapters. Use of any non-Hand Held Products peripherals, cables, or
power adapters may cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Unpacking the Net Base
Open the shipping box and inspect the package to see that the following
standard items are included:
•
•
•
•
One Dolphin Net Base Ethernet cradle
One universal AC/DC power adapter for the Dolphin Net Base
One power cord
One serial extension cable
These are the items you need to set up, configure, and operate the Net
Base. If any items are missing or anything appears to be damaged,
contact your Customer Account Representative.
Keep the original packaging in case you need to return the Net Base for
service or store the Net Base while not in use.
Software Requirements
Before you connect the Dolphin terminal to the Net Base, make sure you
have the most current software installed. To check this, go to Start >
Power Tools > SysInfo.
Applications on the Dolphin Terminal
Applications running on the Dolphin terminal when it is connected to the
Net Base should be designed specifically for a partially connected
network. For more details, please refer to the Best Practices for Partially
Connected Networks document available at www.honeywell.com/aidc.

Setting up the Net Base
1.
Make sure the ON/OFF switch on the power adapter is in the OFF
position.
2.
Plug the power cord into the power adapter.
3.
Plug the power connector cable into the power connector on the
back of the Net Base.
4.
Plug the power cord into a standard wall outlet.
5.
Plug the CAT-5 Ethernet cable into either of the RJ-45 connectors
on the back of the Net Base.
6.
Plug the Ethernet cable into the network.
7.
On the power adapter, turn the ON/OFF switch to the ON position.
8.
The COMM LEDs on all four slots flash binary codes as the Net
Base finds the DHCP server during the bootloader and kernel
sequences.

Charging
!
We recommend use of Hand Held Products Li-Ion battery packs. Use of any
non-Hand Held Products battery may result in damage not covered by the
warranty.
The Net Base provides power to the Dolphin terminal to allow the
Dolphin terminal to charge the main battery of the terminal. The
intelligent battery charging system incorporated into all Dolphin terminals
prevents overcharging, which means that Dolphin terminals may be
stored in the Net Base indefinitely without damage to the terminals,
battery packs, or the Net Base.
1.
Install the Li-ion battery pack into the back panel of the terminal.
2.
Slide the Dolphin terminal into one of the terminal wells until the
Dock LED lights solid green. Charging by the Dolphin terminal
begins immediately if required by the Dolphin terminal.
Connecting the Dolphin Terminal to the Net Base
After the Net Base is installed, configured, and connected to the host
computer, you must connect the Dolphin terminal to the Net Base.
1.
Insert a Dolphin terminal into a terminal well.
2.
On the Dolphin terminal, tap Start > Power Tools > RASMan. The
RASMan utility initializes.
3.
When the connection is established between the Dolphin terminal
and the Net Base, the terminal plays a sound and the
communication icon appears in the Navigation bar.
4.
Upon connection, the Dolphin terminal is assigned an IP address
from the Net Base, which can be used by any application on the
Dolphin terminal.
5.
When you exit RASMan or remove the terminal from the Net Base,
the terminal plays a sound and the disconnected icon appears in
the Navigation bar.
4
Configuring the Network
By default, the Net Base is configured to obtain IP addresses
automatically via DHCP server. This means that in most cases you
would simply “plug and play” the unit. If necessary, you can use the
configuration utility for dynamic network configuration.
If Your DNS Server Supports Bind 8.3 or Later
1.
Obtain the serial number from the label on the bottom panel of the
Net Base.
2.
Connect to the network.
3.
Power up and wait until the COMM LEDs stop flashing. The COMM
LEDs stop flashing when the Net Base has found the DHCP server.
4.
On your workstation, open the web browser and enter the Net Base
serial number exactly as it appears on the label.
5.
Press ENTER and the online configuration utility displays on the
workstation.
If Your DNS Server Does Not Support Bind 8.3 or Later
If your DNS server does not support Bind version 8.3 or later,
Hyperterminal™ or an equivalent terminal emulator program must be
installed on the host workstation to configure the Net Base.
1.
Connect the serial cable to the Serial DB-9 Connector on the back
of the Net Base and a COM port on the host computer.
2.
Start Hyperterminal or an equivalent terminal emulator program.
Use these settings: 115200 bps, 8,N,1.
3.
Power up and wait until the COMM LEDs have stopped flashing.
The COMM LEDs stop flashing when the Net Base has found the
DHCP server.

of the Net Base and a COM port on the host computer. Do NOT
connect to the network at this time.
2.
On the workstation, start Hyperterminal. Use these settings:
115200 bps, 8,N,1.
3.
Wait until login prompt displays on Hyperterminal.

your internet browser.
1.
Open your internet browser.

Setup
Choose IP address assignments from two options:
•
•
•
Obtain all IP addresses dynamically - Requests five IP
addresses from a DHCP server: one is used for the Ethernet
interface and the remaining four are assigned to each terminal
slot.
Specify IP addresses manually - Enables you to specify IP
addresses per terminal slot and change the local USB port
(PPP) IP address.
Run Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) - Enable or disable STP.
STP is enabled by default and helps eliminate redundancy in
the network.

Mounting Options
The bottom panel offers two mounting options:
1.
a DIN Rail for desk mounting or
2.
a wall mount kit for wall mounting.
Both the DIN Rail and wall mount kits need to be purchased separately.
Using the DIN Rail
Use a standard 7.5mm high X 35mm wide DIN Rail to mount the Net
Base to a horizontal surface, such as a desk or table.
Installation Hardware
Screw:
Washer:
Nut:
3/16 in. dia x 5/8 in. long pan head screw
1/2 in. OD x 7/32 in. ID x 3/64 in. thick
3/16 in. dia
1.
Slide the DIN Rail into the slot on the bottom panel.
2.
Turn the Net Base and DIN Rail right side up.
3.
Secure the DIN Rail to the horizontal mounting surface.
10
Using the Wall Mount Kit
You need to purchase two wall mount kits that each contain:
• a mounting bracket,
• three screws, and
• six washer/nut sets.
You need two kits so that you have two mounting brackets–one for each
end of the device–and enough screws (4) and washer/nut sets (8).
The mounting bracket contains an open slot between the back and
bottom wedges to accommodate the connector cables.
1.
Attach the mounting bracket to the wall using the Recommended
Hardware (see page 1-11).
2.
On each end of the Net Base, insert a screw into the round end of
each of the four screw slots on the bottom panel. Then, slide each
screw towards the narrow end of the slot until it snaps in place.
3.
Use a washer/nut set on each of the four screws to secure the
screw in the slot.
4.
Place the Net Base on the mounting bracket; match the holes up
with the secured screws.
5.
Use the remaining washer/nut sets on each of the four screws to
secure the Net Base to the mounting bracket.
Recommended Hardware
If a metal or wood stud is present, drill a 3/32 in. pilot hole into the stud
and use a #6 X 1 1/2 screw and washer to attach the bracket to the wall.
For any of the screws positioned so that they are going directly into dry
wall, use a sheet rock anchor/screw set such as the one listed below.
For any of the screws attaching directly into concrete, drill the
appropriately sized pilot hole into the concrete and secure the bracket to
the wall using concrete anchor screws such as those listed below.
Wall
Recommended Anchors
Sheet Rock
Buildex E-Z Anchor Stud Solver Medium Duty Drywall
Anchor (Model #25216); supports 50 lbs., screws included
Concrete
Buildex TAPCON concrete anchors 3/16 in. X at least 1 in.
