INTRODUCTION
The OpenComms NIC Card transforms Liebert units into manageable
nodes within your Network, NMS, and BMS systems.
The OpenComms NIC Card contains a standard Ethernet and EIA-485
(2-wire) port designed to support viewing and management through:
• HTTP for Web browsers (I.E. 5.5 or later)
• SNMP (v1, v2c) for network management systems
• Modbus RTU for building management systems (and SiteScan)
For the first time, the system that monitors the status of your computing, communication and facility infrastructure can comprehensively
monitor your Liebert equipment concurrently.
These standard open protocols allow simple integration into your monitoring system, leveraging prior infrastructure investments and established procedures.

INSTALLATION
The OpenComms NIC card may be ordered as a factory-installed
option, and it may be installed as a kit for field retrofit to existing Liebert units or as a self-contained unit in its own enclosure.
If ordered as a factory-installed option, proceed to 2.3 - User Connections for OpenComms NIC.
2.1
Retrofit Kit
As a retrofit kit, the circuit board is secured to a metal mounting
plate. The mounting plate then is attached to a flat metal surface in a
low-voltage section of the Liebert unit.
2.2
Self-Contained Unit
The self-contained model packages the interface card inside a steel
enclosure, for mounting external to the Liebert unit. A low-voltage
transformer is also provided.

2.3
User Connections for OpenComms NIC
The OpenComms NIC can use simultaneous connections, sometimes
requiring three user connections:
• Permanent network connection
• Modbus 485 connection
• Temporary serial connection for configuration/setup
2.3.1
Network Port
Consult with the network administrator or other responsible party for
arranging a network drop to the Liebert equipment. The OpenComms
NIC communicates via standard 10 Base-T Ethernet network connection. Route the 10 Base-T cable to the Liebert unit and connect to J3,
the RJ45 jack on the interface card. The OpenComms Network card
will operate with any 10 Base-T Ethernet, regardless of operating system used.
2.3.2
BMS Port
The Modbus 485 connection will use the terminals marked “Repeater.”
(TB2) The Modbus server uses RTU protocol and will allow for a maximum of 32 units on 4000ft. of wire on a common line. EIA-485 repeaters may be necessary to accommodate additional units or longer
cables. Point availability may be referenced in the document, “NIC
Reference Library,” which may be downloaded at www.liebert.com
under the OpenComms product family.
2.3.3
Configuration Port / Service Terminal
A temporary serial connection to the interface card is necessary for
configuration and setup.
Using a DB9F-DB9F null-modem cable, connect the “DTE Serial Port”
P18 to an ASCII terminal or computer running terminal emulation
application. HyperTerminal® and Procomm® are examples of terminal emulation applications running on Microsoft Windows® operating
systems. All trademarks are property of their respective owners.
6
Installation
Accessing the Configuration Port
What you will need:
• PC capable of running a terminal emulation application, such as
Microsoft Windows® HyperTerminal®.
• DB9 Null modem or file transfer cable. (The correct cable will have
at a minimum, pins 2 and 3 crossed at the ends.) Null modem
cables are commonly found in computers stores and may also be
referred to as a file transfer cable.

System Configuration
System Information Menu
The System Information Menu seeks descriptive input to enable the
unit to be identified. This data is readable via SNMP queries. The (“)
character is not permitted in any of the descriptive fields
Network Settings Menu
The Network Settings Menu configures network parameters essential
for proper network operation. The network administrator or other personnel responsible for the network should be consulted for the proper
parameters to be entered in this menu.
In the static mode, the IP address is entered. Use the standard fourpart dotted decimal format. The NetMask and Default Gateway
should also be entered in dotted decimal format. The NetMask, also
known as subnet mask, delineates devices on the same physical network segment, versus devices that require the services of a network
router for access to other networks. The Default Router is the address
of default router on the local segment.
!
CAUTION
Consult your network administrator to ascertain the
parameters appropriate to your network.
BOOTP and DHCP Mode
The OpenComms NIC supports DHCP and BOOTP if a DCHP or
BOOTP server must exist on the network. When this feature is
enabled, at boot-up the card will perform a DHCP or BOOTP request
for configuration information, including automatic assignment of an
IP address. If the card receives the information, no further requests
are made. If, at boot-up, a response is not received, the card will continue to send a request approximately every 30 seconds until a
response is received. When this condition is encountered, pushing the
<Enter> key returns the unit to the service terminal mode.
SNMP Communications Menu
The SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) Communications
Menu specifies parameters particular to the SNMP interface. Communities are used as a means of security for SNMP v1; only specified
hosts with the appropriate community name(s) are allowed to perform
particular SNMP operations. Up to 20 different communities can be
assigned.
For each community, specify the dotted decimal IP address of the
remote host, the privilege level (read or read/write), and community
name. Trap Communities specify the recipient(s) of SNMP trap messages generated by the OpenComms Network Interface Card. Typically; the recipient is the management station of the NMS. Specify the
11
System Configuration
destination IP address, and the community name for that host. Up to
20 trap communities can be assigned. For Communities and Trap
Communities, the information can be entered as a “complex” line —
all parameters space-delimited on the command line. Otherwise, the
menu items will prompt for each individual parameter.
NOTE
SNMP v1 communities are transmitted in plain (unencrypted)
text across the network.
Authentication failure traps may be enabled, so that the network
management system can be warned when unauthorized access (i.e.:
incorrect community name) is attempted.
Web Server
The Web Server section will allow the user to disable / enable the
HTTP session for the card. Disabling the Web Server means that web
browsers will not be able to access the devices status graphical page
(GUI).
Telnet
This section allows users to enable or disable the Telnet session.
Change User Name / Password
This section allows users to set or change the default user name and
password.
• Default user name is “Liebert” (case sensitive).
• Default password is “Liebert” (case sensitive).
Firmware Updates Menu
The Firmware Update Menu is intended for Liebert service personnel only. No
user configurable parameters are accessed in this selection. If entered, to escape,
power must be cycled on the card.
Factory Settings Menu
The Factory Settings Menu displays the manufacture date, serial

SNMP
The OpenComms Network Interface Card supports “get,” “getnext,”
“set,” “response” and “trap” packets of SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol). The OpenComms NIC supports MIB-II, RFC1628
and Liebert Global Products MIBs. The terms “alarms” and “conditions” will be used interchangeably through out this description.
Alarms are generated and maintained through the RFC 1628 UPS
MIB. Conditions are generated and maintained through the Liebert
Global Products MIB.
The RFC 1628 UPS MIB provides information for the supported UPS
devices. The Liebert Global Products MIB provides information for the
supported environmental devices. All conditions that are listed are
dependent upon what the unit itself supports. When a condition
occurs within the unit, it is logged into the condition table within the
appropriate MIB and a unique ID is assigned. A description of the condition along with the value of the system up-time when the condition
was generated is placed into the table as well. A trap is then sent out
to the monitoring system.
4.2
Liebert Global Products MIB
Environmental units log conditions in the Liebert Global Products
MIB. Traps for the environmental units are generated out of the Liebert Global Products MIB. Currently, there are only two traps that are
sent for environmental units through the MIB: Event Condition Entry
Added and Event Condition Entry Removed. The Event Condition
Entry Added is sent each time a condition is inserted into the conditions table. This trap provides the condition ID, the condition description, and the condition time. The Event Condition Entry Removed is
sent each time a condition is removed from the conditions table. This
trap provides the condition ID, the condition description, and the condition time.
14
Operation
4.3
RFC 1628 UPS MIB
UPS units log alarms in the RFC 1628 UPS MIB. Traps for the UPS
units are generated out of the RFC 1628 UPS MIB. There are four
traps that may be sent for the UPS units: Trap On Battery, Trap Test
Completed, Trap Alarm Entry Added and Trap Alarm Entry Removed.
The trap On Battery is sent when the UPS is operating on battery
power. This trap will be sent once a minute until the UPS either shuts
down or is no longer running on battery power. This trap provides the
Estimated Minutes Remaining on Battery, the Seconds on Battery
and the Configured Low Battery Time. The Trap Test Completed is
sent when a UPS diagnostic test is completed. This trap provides the
Test ID of the test that has been performed, the Test Spin Lock, the
Test Results Summary, the Test Results Detail, the Test Start Time
and the Test Elapsed Time. The Trap Alarm Entry Added is sent
when an alarm is placed into the alarm table and provides the alarm
ID and the alarm description. This trap is not sent on the following
alarms: On Battery and Test In Progress. The Trap Alarm entry
Removed is sent when an alarm is removed from the alarm table and
provides the alarm ID and the alarm description. This trap is not sent
out when the Test In Progress alarm is removed from the alarm table.
4.3.1
SNMP Traps
Below is the definition on how events are handled in RFC1628.
* Two similar event traps (notifications) are sent to their destination
or NMS system. The event traps are differentiated by their trap type.
Type 3 = Condition ADDED to the event table, Type 4 = Condition
REMOVED from the event table.
*Each event trap contains the following three bindings of information:
1. Trap ID. The ID represents the location or placeholder in the table
to find event information.
2. The OID reference of the well-known alarm. Note: Below are the
OID references for RFC1628 alarms. These are not Liebert-unit
specific, but rather RFC1628 specific.
3. Time ticks or system uptime that represents when an event
occurred.

To summarize, event traps generally are parsed by the NMS for any of
the information contained in the trap. A process should be put in place
by the NMS to recognize whether the event trap is a new condition or
a cleared condition by looking at the trap type. Likewise, the NMS
should be able to extract the second binding of the trap notification to
see the OID of the well-known alarm. This OID reference will allow
the NMS to extract the well-known name or description of the event.

MIB
The Management Information Base (MIB) is a formal document
declaring the specifics of the information supported by the SNMP
implementation. The administrator for the NMS (or other applications
utilizing SNMP to communicate with the Liebert units will need the
MIB in order to integrate the Liebert units into the monitoring system.
The MIB files are contained on the CD that ships with the product.
Alternatively, the MIBs for the OpenComms Network Interface Card
are available for download at www.liebert.com. Navigate through
Products, then Site Monitoring & Software and proceed to the OpenComms support information area. The RCF 1628 MIB can be downloaded at www.ietf.org.
4.5
HTTP
Status and alarm information can be queried by Web browsers via
HTTP v1.1 (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol). The data is shown in an
intuitive graphical format, akin to the unit’s front bezel controls.
These browsers have been tested and are supported:
• Microsoft Internet Explorer, versions 5.x and later
• Limited Support for: Netscape 6.0 & Opera 5
Font size may need to be adjusted on your browser for optimal viewing.
With appropriate NMS software and configuration, the user on reception of SNMP traps may view HTTP pages in order to view the overall
operating status of the unit – or HTTP may be used on its own to monitor “on-demand” the unit operation. HTTP pages will automatically
refresh (reload) every 20 seconds and is adjustable through the service

Modbus Communications and Connectivity

MODBUS COMMUNICATIONS AND CONNECTIVITY
This section describes the Modbus communications protocol as supported by the OpenComms NIC card. It includes information on how
to pass information to and from the OpenComms NIC card via Modbus. It is also intended to help facilitate answering questions regarding supported types, frame format, function code support etc.
5.1
Implementation Basics
Protocol controls the language structure or message format between
devices in other words, the rules for communication. The rules for
communication include how master and slave devices initiate communications, as well as unit identification, message handling and error
checking. Modbus protocol simply refers to the control of the query
and response cycles between master and slave devices.
The OpenComms NIC module is configured to act as a slave device on
a common network. The common network is a multi-drop or “daisy
chain” configuration over EIA-485, where multiple slaves reside on a
common wire or loop.
5.1.1
Constraints
The OpenComms NIC communicates with local database and therefore is subject to the time delay resulting from the local database
updating policies. Use of “Preset Multiple Holding Registers” and
“Preset a single Holding Register” functions requires accessing the
Liebert device connected and to the OpenComms NIC card database
service. Users should be aware that the Modbus application coexists
with other on-board application servers (HTTP and SNMP specifically) and competes for the database service and CPU time. This may
lead to uncertainty of responding time of the OpenComms NIC. The
user or third party integrator may have to compensate for the delay
time if HTTP, SNMP and Modbus are going to be utilized simultaneously.
5.2
Transmission Format
The OpenComms NIC module supports Modbus RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) transmission modes. The OpenComms NIC communication
rate is fixed at 9600 baud, 8 data bits, No parity, 1 Stop bit. The communication media is fixed using EIA-485 standards.
19
Modbus Communications and Connectivity
5.3
Physical Connection
A Modbus network should consist of one, and only one, host client, and
up to 255 slaves uniquely identifiable by their slave ID. The slave ID
of each OpenComms NIC is set through the service terminal (configuration) port. (See section 3, System Configuration for more details.)
The OpenComms NIC supports multi-drop connection over RS485. On
the OpenComms NIC, a client should connect to the OpenComms NIC
as a multi-drop connection via the RS485 “Repeater” port (TB2), (Pin1
as minus and Pin2 as plus. J28-1 and J28-2 should be shorted.)
The OpenComms NIC card is designed to reside on a maximum common line of 32 devices with a total cable length of 4000 feet. In a “normal environment” all devices should be connected in “daisy-chain”
fashion, with “star configurations” or branches, being used at a minimum. See Figure 6 for details. A “normal environment” consists of an
installation where noise or electrical interference is minimal. This is
typical of communication wiring run in properly grounded conduit or
in areas where high voltage or radio transmissions are not present.
Otherwise, these conditions are designated as “noisy.”
Figure 6
Typical maximum installation
The recommended cable characteristics are:
Normal Environments:
• 18-22 gauge, twisted-pair, stranded (non- shielded)
Typical type is: Belden 8442
Noisy Environments:
• 18-22 gauge, twisted-pair, stranded (shielded)
Typical type is: Belden 9461

repeaters are available through the Liebert Corporation. SiteScan’s
“REPOPT” will work sufficiently for this application. Consult the
SiteScan price book for pricing schedule and alternative solutions.

Modbus Slave Functions
5.4.1
Data Type
The OpenComms NIC supports data in a register block as one of the
following types: Signed integer (16 bit) / Unsigned integer (16 bit) /
Signed long (32 bit); IEEE floating-point (32 bit); Null terminated
String.
A datum should consist of one or multiple registers. The leftmost byte
contains the MSB and the rightmost byte contains the LSB.
21
Modbus Communications and Connectivity
5.4.2
Function Code Support
The OpenComms NIC implements the following Modbus functions.
However, integrators will use function code 0x03, and 0x06 most often
due to the type of data to be acquired.
0x01
Read Coil Status
0x02
Read Input Status
0x03
Read Holding Registers
0x04
Read Input Registers
0x06
Write Single Holding Register
0x0F
Force Multiple Coils
0x10
Preset Multiple Holding Registers
5.4.3
Read/Write Holding Registers (0x03, 0x06, 0x10)
A holding register is a 16-bit message unit. In principle, a message in
a holding register is write / readable, but holding registers can be used
by read-only data as well. Holding registers are mapped into
40001-49999 logic address range.
Holding registers can be read by function code 0x03. A maximum of
125 registers can be read by a single query.
Function code 0x06 requests the server to change the content of a single holding register, and function code 0x10 requests server to change
the contents of multiple holding registers adjacent to each other.
5.4.4
Read Input Registers (0x04)
The input register block contains read-only data accessible to the user.
A datum in the input register block occupies one or multiple registers
such as described in the previous section. The input registers are
mapped into 30000-39999 of the logic address range.
Up to 125 input registers can be read by a single query using function
code 0x04.
5.4.5
Read, Set Coil Status (0x01, 0x05, 0x0F)
Coil status contains bit-mapped status accessible to the users. In principle, a coil status can be read, set or cleared by the host client. Multiple coil status can be read by specifying the index of bits of the first
coil and the number of consecutive coils in a single query.
Coil status can be read by function code 0x01.
Function code 0x05 set or clear a single coil, and function code 0x0F
set or clear multiple coils.
22
Modbus Communications and Connectivity
5.4.6
Read Input Status (0x02)
The input status block contains read-only status accessible to the
users. It can be read by using function code 0x02 in the same as reading coil status.
5.4.7
Error Handling
According to the Modbus specification, the OpenComms NIC composes
the following exception responses to the client if an exception or error
occurs.

Exception codes are:
• 01: Unsupported function code
• 02: Out-of-range data addresses
• 03: Out-of-range data value (write to holding registers)
• 04: There is currently no LMD device connected to the server
• 05: Server is composing response but cannot response to the client
within the time limit required by Modbus specification.
Modbus Packet Formats
Each Modbus packet consists of the following fields:
• Device Address
• Function Code
• Data Field(s)
• Error Check Field
Device Address
The address field immediately follows the beginning of the frame and
consists of 8-bits. These bits indicate the user assigned address of the
slave device that is to receive the message sent by the attached master
device.
Each slave OpenComms NIC must be assigned a unique address and
only the addressed slave will respond to a query that contains its
address.
Function Code
The function code field tells the addressed slaves what function to perform. Function codes are specifically designed invoke a specific action
by the slave device. The function code range is from 1 to 127. However,
23
Modbus Communications and Connectivity
the OpenComms NIC module primarily uses Function Code 3 (Read
Holding Registers) and Function Code 6 (Preset Single Register).
Data Field(s)
The data field varies in length depending on whether the message is a
request or a response to a packet. This field typically contains information required by the slave device to perform the command specified
or to pass back data to the master device.
Error Check Field
The Error Check Field consists of a 16-bit (2 byte) Cyclical Redundancy Check (CRC16). It allows the receiving device to detect a packet
that has been corrupted with transmission errors.

NIC Setup and Testing
6.2
Testing the Network
“Ping” is a tool used to test the network. At the command prompt,
type, “ping <address of card>”. Ping will respond that it received a
reply from the card if the card is functioning properly on the network.
If the card is not functioning properly or is not connecting to the network, ping will respond that the request it sent to the card has timed
out.
If the ping request times out, go to the Service Terminal to verify that
the card initialized the network when it powered up. If the card is sitting at the text “Initializing network…” then the card has not connected to the network. Hit <enter> to go into the Service Terminal.
Select No. 2 for the Network Interface Menu. Verify that you have the
boot mode set up correctly. If you choose a static IP Address, verify
that the IP Address is valid for your network.
If you obtain your network information from a BootP or DHCP server,
verify that the server is valid and that it is responding to requests.
Once the information has been verified, press <escape> to return to
the main menu and select “x” to exit out of the card. Then, reboot the
card. The card may be rebooted by pressing switch S1 on the card for
approximately 2 seconds until the DS9 link light turns off.
If the card still does not connect to the network, or ping still does not
receive a reply from the card, verify proper set up on the card itself.
DS4 should be illuminated if the card detects the network. Verify that
the network cable is connected to Ethernet port J3 and that the hub/
router/switch to which the card is connected is operating correctly.
Once this information is verified, reboot the card.
6.3
Service Terminal Troubleshooting
If the card does not bring up a Service Terminal, check link light DS9.
DS9 should be illuminated within approximately 0.5 seconds of application of power. If DS9 is not illuminated and no other LED's are on,
verify that power has been applied to the card. If power has been
applied, verify wiring connected to TB3 is correct. TB3 should have
24VAC or 12 VDC applied. Reboot the card once the power to the card
has been verified.
6.4
SNMP Troubleshooting
If SNMP is not functioning, first make sure that the card powers up,
the Service Terminal is functioning and the card is connected to the
network (verified by using ping). If all of those conditions are met, verify that the community strings are set up correctly. To do this, go into
the Service Terminal and select number 3 for SNMP Communications.
26
NIC Setup and Testing
Then, select number 2 for Display/Modify Communities. Verify that
the IP Addresses listed are valid for your network. Verify that you are
typing in the correct community name when trying to access SNMP.
The community name is case sensitive.
Once this information is verified, reboot the card and try to access
SNMP again.
6.5
Web Troubleshooting
If the card does not serve up a web page, but the Service Terminal is
functioning, SNMP is functioning, and the card is connected to the
network (verified through ping), then reboot the card. In this case, the
web server has been lost and needs to be restarted.
If the card serves up a web page, but the web page only displays “Discovering connected device…” verify that the card is connected to the
desired device. Verify that the link lights DS13 and DS8 are blinking
on and off. DS13 indicates that the card is receiving from the connected device. DS8 indicates that the card is transmitting to the connected device.
If neither of the link lights is blinking, check the connection between
TB1 and P3. TB1 is used to interface to the Environmental units and
to some UPS’s. P3 is used to interface with some UPS’s. If DS13 is
blinking and DS8 is not, this indicates a communication problem
between the card and the connected device.
When this occurs, replace the NIC card and retry connecting to the
Web. If the problem persists, change the card in the device that the
NIC card is trying to interface with. Try to reconnect to the Web.
6.6
Modbus Troubleshooting
If the card does not respond to Modbus requests, verify that DS7,
“repeater port receive” is flashing during a request. In proper communications DS12 will also be flashing indicating, “repeater port transmit.”
Verify proper wiring on the EIA 485 network. OpenComms NIC cards
should observe a “plus to plus” and “minus to minus” daisy chain configuration.
Also verify that the proper slave ID has been set in service terminal.
Refer to 3.2 - Service Terminal for initiating a service terminal session.

location and wiring details can be found in the respective unit’s user
manual.
The unit’s communications port is EIA-422, which measures ~3-5VDC
between the positive and negative terminals. The connection is polarity sensitive, so use a voltmeter to verify polarity. The connection is
positive-to-positive and, negative-tonegative-. The result when the
card and the unit are connected together, a voltmeter will measure ~
3-5 VDC. Once proper communication has been established, voltage
readings will fluctuate.
