2.1.
Installation
The F3400/F1000 comes in a 19 inch (.48m) rack mount enclosure. Install the F3400/F1000 in
the rack. Use the proper anchoring method to mount the unit securely. Supply the 24VDC to the
unit.
2.2.
Communication
The F3400/F1000 will not communicate over a user’s network the first time it is connected to
the network. The manufacturer programs the F3400/F1000 with a default IP address:
10.0.0.186, subnet: 255.255.255.0. This default address must be changed to an IP address that
corresponds with the user's network before the F3400/F1000 can communicate over the
network.
2.3.
Set the F3400/F1000’s IP Address
There are four ways to set the F3400/F1000’s IP address:
Via the ARP and PING commands
Via the Web browser
Via the EIA232 interface
Via Telnet commands
www.rletech.com
19
970.484.6510
2 Getting Started
2.3.1 Set the F3400/F1000's IP Address using the ARP and
PING Commands
To set the IP address of a manufacturer programmed F3400/F1000, you can use the ARP
(Address Resolution Protocol) command together with the PING (ICMP echo request)
command. However, before using these commands, you must know the Ethernet address of the
F3400/F1000.
2.3.1.1 Obtain the Ethernet Address
Each network device must have its own unique identification. This identification sets it apart
from all other manufacturers and ensures that no two network devices have the same address.
Each manufacturer must use a six digit numbering convention, the first three digits determine
the actual manufacturer and the remaining three digits determine the unique network serial
number of each individual device.
A typical Ethernet address (also known as a MAC address - Media Access Control) from the
F3400/F1000 looks like this: 00:90:5B:00:02:45
You can find the Ethernet (MAC) address of your F3400/F1000 by looking at the model number
sticker located on the bottom of the device.
2.3.1.2 Use the ARP Command
Once you know the Ethernet address of the F3400/F1000, use the ARP command with the
correct parameters from any computer located on the F3400/F1000's subnet (e.g., Class C with a
net mask of 255.255.255.0).
For example, enter the following from a command prompt:
arp -s 192.168.1.14 00-90-5b-00-02-45
This command tells the computer (from which the ARP command was entered) that the network
device with an IP address of 192.168.1.14 uses the Ethernet (MAC) address of
00-90-5b-00-02-45.
2.3.1.3 Use the PING Command
After the ARP command has been entered, the PING command must be entered from the same
computer in order to set up the IP address of the F3400/F1000. The PING command will use the
ARP entry added from 2.3.1.1, “Obtain the Ethernet Address” on page 20, to send the IP
address information directly to the F3400/F1000 (which is just one of several methods to
initially configure the IP address on a new F3400/F1000).
To do this, enter the following from a command prompt:
PING ip_address
Where “ip_address”' is the IP address you entered using the ARP command. In the above
example, the following would be entered:
PING 192.168.1.14
This changes the IP address of the F3400/F1000 to: 192.168.1.14.

2 Getting Started
2.3.1.4 Troubleshooting the ARP/PING Commands
If problems are encountered, it may be for one of the following reasons:
The F3400/F1000 already has a non-default TCP/IP address. Once the IP address of the
F3400/F1000 has been changed from the default of 10.0.0.186, it is not possible to change it
again with the ARP/PING commands. This method of setting up the F3400/F1000's IP
address can only be used on a F3400/F1000 that still has its original default IP address, as
shipped from the manufacturer.
The device is not on the same Class C subnet as the computer from which the ARP/PING
commands were sent. The F3400/F1000's default router and net mask must be changed via a
Web browser pointed at the F3400/F1000's default IP address (i.e., http://10.0.0.186) or via a
direct EIA232 terminal connection to the F3400/F1000-both of which are alternate methods
for setting up the F3400/F1000's IP address.
2.3.2 Set the F3400/F1000’s IP Address using a Web
Browser
1 Plug a crossover network cable into the laptop or workstation that will be used to configure
the F3400/F1000. This cable is not intended to be connected to a network hub.
2 Write down the computer's IP address and Subnet Mask. Then change the IP address and
Subnet Mask of the computer from its existing address to one that will allow it to
communicate with the F3400/F1000, such as 10.0.0.188. It may be helpful to set the IP
address to one that is one number different from the F3400/F1000's IP address. Consult the
computer's manual or your IT Department before attempting this.
3 Connect the other end of the network cable to the Ethernet port on the back of the F3400/
F1000. Access the F3400/F1000 through a Web browser by typing the IP address into the
location bar. Enter the F3400/F1000 user name and password when prompted.
Note
The default user name is “falcon” and there is no default password—leave the password field
empty.
4 Select the Configuration link, then select the Internet Protocol link and change the IP
Address, Net Mask, and Def Route to one provided by the network administrator. Press the
Submit Changes button. The F3400/F1000 will save the new IP address and reboot. Once
the F3400/F1000 reboots completely, the system status LED will stop flashing.
5 5Change the IP address of the computer back to its original IP address. If the computer was
configured as DHCP (the network domain controller assigns an IP address) return it to this
state. This may require assistance from your IT Department, or you may need to consult the
computer's manual.
6 6The computer and the F3400/F1000 are now both configured to communicate on the
network. Both should be accessible via the network. Connect the PC and the F3400/F1000 to
the network. From the PC Web browser, type in the IP address of the F3400/F1000. Enter
the user name and password.
Note
www.rletech.com
The default user name is “falcon” and there is no default password - leave the password field
empty.

2 Getting Started
2.3.3 Set the F3400/F1000’s IP Address Using an EIA232
Connection
To use the EIA232 interface:
1 Connect the EIA232 port (P2 EIA232 - COM1) on the F3400/F1000 to a terminal or PC
running terminal emulation software (HyperTerminal) with a 9-pin male-female straight
through serial cable (a serial cable is supplied with the F3400/F1000).
2 2Set the appropriate communication port to 9600 baud, NO parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit,
(9600/N/8/1), and no software or hardware flow command.
3 Once the terminal emulation software starts, press Enter on the keyboard and the Main Menu
should appear. If the Main Menu does not appear, check the communication settings and
make sure the unit is powered on.
4 From the Main Menu type “SC” to select the System Configuration Menu.

their name and slot channel number (S.Ch).
This page will be displayed when configuring the F3400/F1000’s main board inputs, channels
1-32. The options on this page are described below:
Input Reading: Displays the input current as sensed by the F3400/F1000 and the calculated
value based on the offset and gain settings.
Example: A current input of 10.5mA from the temperature sensor would convert to a value of
68.0°F. When the input Type is Digital NO, Digital NC or Digital Status, the Calculated Value
will be a 0 or 1, with 1 representing an alarm condition.
www.rletech.com
36
970.484.6510
4 Configuration Menu
Select Input Type: Select based on the type of device connected to the input channel. Options
include:
Not Configured – Select when there is nothing connected to the input.
Analog 4-20mA – Select when the device connected to the input provides a 4-20mA output.
Digital NO – Select when the device connected to the input is a dry contact that is normally
open and closes on an alarm condition.
Digital NC – Select when the device connected to the input is a dry contact that is normally
closed and open on an alarm condition.
Digital Status – Select when the device connected to the input is a dry contact that only
needs to be monitored (status only), without alarms.
Thermistor – Select when the device connected to the input provides resistance output.
Gain and Offset: Applies only to Analog 4-20mA input types. Inputs like temperature,
humidity, pressure, etc. sensors connected to the F3400/F1000 convert information to a 420mA signal. The F3400/F1000 reads this raw 4-20mA signal and calculates a value based on
the input and the predetermined gain and offset settings. The idea is to determine the correct
gain and offset values so that the F3400/F1000 calculates and displays an accurate reading - one
that corresponds closely to the sensor's reading (e.g., if the sensor measures a temperature of
50°F, the F3400/F1000 should display 50°F; if the sensor measures a temperature of 95°F, the
F3400/F1000 should display 95°F). If the gain and offset settings are incorrect, the F3400/
F1000 will calculate an incorrect value. Since the F3400/F1000's reading will not match the
sensor's reading, over the entire sensor range, missed alarms or nuisance alarms could result.
To set gain and offset values, click the Calculator link.
Figure 4.3 Calculator Link
Enter the sensor’s range and press the Calculate button. Click the Return to Input Configuration
link and the gain and offset fields will be automatically entered with the correct offset and gain
settings. Gain and offset values can also be determined by using the following formulas:
Gain for 4-20mA Transducer = (Sensor High Range Value- Sensor Low Range Value) / 4
Offset for 4-20mA Transducer = Sensor Low Range Value - Gain
www.rletech.com

970.484.6510
4 Configuration Menu
Example: Temperature sensor with a sensing range of 50-95°F - displayed in Fahrenheit
Gain = (95-50) / 4 = 11 (round to the nearest integer)
Offset = 50 - 11 = 39
Example: Temperature sensor with a sensing range of 50-95°F - displayed in Celsius
Convert 50-95°F to 10-35°C and use the Celsius range for the calculations
Gain = (35-10) / 4 = 6 (round to the nearest integer)
Offset = 10 - 6 = 4
Example: Humidity sensor with a range of 0 - 100% RH
Gain = (100-0) / 4 = 25
Offset = 0 - 25 = -25
High Limit 2: Applies only when the input type is Analog 4-20mA. The F3400/F1000 will
record an alarm and send notification when the F3400/F1000's calculated value exceeds this
limit. The High Limit 1 and High Limit 2 are disabled when they are both set to 0.
High Limit 1: Applies only when the input type is set for Analog 4-20mA. The F3400/F1000
will record an alarm and send notification when the F3400/F1000’s calculated value exceeds
this limit. The High Limit 1 and High Limit 2 are disabled when they are both set to 0.
Low Limit 1: Applies only when the input type is Analog 4-20mA. The F3400/F1000 will
record an alarm and send notification when the F3400/F1000's calculated value falls below this
limit. The Low Limit 1 and Low Limit 2 are disabled when they are both set to 0.
Low Limit 2: Applies only when the input type is Analog 4-20mA. The F3400/F1000 will
record an alarm and send notification when the F3400/F1000's calculated value falls below this
limit. The Low Limit 1 and Low Limit 2 are disabled when they are both set to 0.
Unit Of Measure (UOM): The 10 character field used to assign a unit of measure label to
analog values, such as °F, °C, % RH, Amps, Volts, PSI, etc. The unit of measure field is only
required when the input type is Analog 4-20mA. The unit of measure field is displayed on the
Main Menu and in notification (email/pager messages and SNMP Trap).
Alarm Label: Used for input identification. Applies to all input types except “Not Configured”.
For Analog input types, this label is displayed on the F3400/F1000 Main Menu and the Input
Configuration Menu. When the input alarms and/or returns to normal, the label is included in
the Alarm History and notification messages. For Digital NO and Digital NC inputs, the label is
displayed on the F3400/F1000 Main Menu, Input Configuration Menu, Alarm History page and
in notification messages only when the device is in alarm. For Digital Status inputs, the label is
displayed on the F3400/F1000 Main Menu when the input is on. When the input turns on, the
label is also included in the Digital Status History.
Normal Label: Applies to input types Digital NO, Digital NC and Digital Status. This field
may be left blank. If it is left blank, the F3400/F1000 displays the Label (from above). This
label is displayed on the main page when the input is normal, in the Alarm History when the
input returns to normal and in notification messages. For Digital Status inputs, the label is
displayed on the main page when the input is off. When the input turns off, the label is also
included in the Digital Status History.

4 Configuration Menu
Alarm Delay: The amount of time the F3400/F1000 waits to send an alert after an alarm
condition is detected. The F3400/F1000 uses this same time delay to report a return to normal
after the alarm condition clears. The alarm delay is active for all input types except Not
Configured.
Example:
An input is configured as a digital NO, labeled “CRAC UNIT ALARM” and has an alarm
delay of 10 seconds. When the CRAC unit alarms, it closes the contact to the F3400/F1000.
If the CRAC unit returns to normal and opens the contact to the F3400/F1000 within the 10
second alarm delay, no alarm is generated in the F3400/F1000. If the CRAC unit remains in
alarm for 10 seconds or more, the F3400/F1000 records the alarm and generates notification
per the input settings. If the CRAC unit returns to normal and alarms within the 10 second
alarm delay, the F3400/F1000 does not record it as a return to normal. Once the CRAC unit
returns to normal for the 10 second alarm delay, the F3400/F1000 records a return to normal
and generators notification per the F3400/F1000 settings.
Hysteresis: The number that designates the amount an input reading must sway from its preset
alarm reading before it is classified as returned to normal. The Hysteresis provides a deadband
around the limit settings to prevent several alarms and return to normal alarms when the input is
the same as a limit setting.
The Hysteresis applies when the input type is Analog 4-20mA or thermistor and is active for
High Limit 1, High Limit 2, Low Limit 1 and Low Limit 2.
Example:
A temperature sensor alarms when it reaches its High Limit 1 of 80°F. If Hysteresis is set at
four, the sensor must register less than 76°F before the F3400/F1000 reports it as returned to
normal. In another example, a humidity sensor alarms when it reaches its Low Limit 2 of
30% RH. If the Hysteresis is set at five, the humidity must register more than 35% before the
F3400/F1000 reports it as returned to normal.
Relay Activate: Used to assign a Threshold change to analog inputs, or Digital Alarm
generated by this input to a specific relay. To select the relay, check the relay box. This feature
can be set to activate on a High 2/Low 2 threshold for analog points, in the Relay configuration
menu
Dial Out Notification: The list of up to 4 pager numbers to which the F3400/F1000 sends
alarm notification. The numbers correspond to phone numbers configured from the Configure
Phone Number links at the bottom of the Modem Configuration page. Separate each ID number
with a comma. Enter zero to disable. The F3400/F1000 will dial the lowest number listed
regardless of the order the numbers are listed. See 4.5.1, “Configure Phone Numbers” on
page 44 for more information.
Example:
If the Alarm dial out string is set to “3, 5, 1, 0”, the F3400/F1000 will dial Pager #1, Pager #3
and then Pager #5 when an alarm occurs. Pager notification will be sent when an input
alarms (high limit 2, high limit 1, low limit 1, low limit 2 is exceeded or the digital input is in
alarm). An option on the Pager Configuration page determines if the F3400/F1000 will send
a page when an input returns to normal.

Email Recipient Notification: Allows up to four email addresses to be designated for
notification if the input goes into alarm. Email addresses will be displayed once they are entered

Alarm Disable by Schedule: Used to designate a period of time the input will be disabled or
inactive. To do this, select either the A or B schedules, which are defined in the Schedule
Configuration menu. Within the scheduled time, the point on the Main Menu will turn Blue to
indicate that the input is currently being disabled during its scheduled time. Once the scheduled

4.5.1 Configure Phone Numbers
Figure 4.8 Phone Number Configuration Page
This page is accessed through the Config Phone Number link at the bottom of the Modem
Configuration page. This screen allows users to configure pager and cell phone numbers that are
used for alarm notification.
Select Phone Type: Determines which type of device the F3400/F1000 calls. Select the Text
option to dial a PC receiving ASCII strings. Select Numeric Pager to dial a numeric pager.
Select the Alpha-numeric Pager option to dial an alpha-numeric pager.
Number: Enter the pager service number for numeric and alphanumeric pager entries. Each
comma after the pager number represents a two second delay. This delay is used to allow
enough time for the pager service to answer before requesting the pager ID. Typically only one
comma is needed. However, experimentation with the proper number of commas may be
necessary. In some cases, a 9 must be entered to access an outside line.

Pager ID: Mandatory for numeric and alphanumeric pagers.
Alphanumeric pager – The ID entered is sent to the paging service along with all queued
alarm messages. The ID is the unique PIN for a specific pager. The ID may be a maximum of
16 characters.
Numeric pager – The ID entered may be configured to deliver different numeric messages.
The ID can contain 15 characters: any combination of the numerals 0 through 9 and a * or #.
These are the only characters that will be transmitted to the paging service.
– Y – Binary Alarm Condition: 1=on, 0=return to normal (RTN)
– ZZZ – Alarm ID Number; see Appendix C, “Alarm ID Reference Tables” on page 87.
Example: A 1001 message is an Input 1, High Limit 1 Alarm. A 0093 message means that
Digital Input #13 has returned to normal.
Note
When using the $, if multiple unacknowledged alarms are present in the Alarm History Log,
the alarm code will be 99999.
An effective numeric page depends largely on the parameters established by the paging service.
Experimentation may be required to achieve desired results.
Acknowledgement Code: Any number, up to six digits, used to acknowledge receipt of an
alarm and to terminate any additional call outs for this phone number. This code will
acknowledge only those alarms sent to this phone number. It can be acknowledged by selecting
the Acknowledge Alarms button on the bottom of the Alarm History page.
Multiple phone numbers can use the same acknowledge code. This allows one user to
acknowledge alarms sent to multiple pager numbers.

Persistent V1,V2C-Traps: Enables the F3400/F1000 to issue continuous SNMP Traps until an
alarm acknowledgement is received by the F3400/F1000 or until the alarming point returns to
normal. The parameter is a user defined time interval that is set in minutes. Traps can be
acknowledged from the Alarm Management page. The SNMP Traps do not include any delivery
verification. A Persistent Trap setting of 5 or 10 minutes will trigger the F3400/F1000 to send
the Trap on a regular interval in case the previous Trap did not reach the Network Management
System (NMS). Typically, the NMS can be set to ignore duplicate Traps to prevent re-alarming
at the NMS.
Analog Trap Type: Used for communication to a NMS via SNMP Traps. The default will add
the Value, UOM (Unit of Measure), and the Label fields. If preferred, the F3400/F1000 can
send only the label on analog Traps. This makes analog Traps the same format as digital Traps
which may make parsing the Traps easier for the NMS.
Select SNMP Trap Type: Select SNMP V1-Trap, V2C-Trap, or V2C Inform based on
individual network system configurations.
Max Inform Retries: Set options related to resending unacknowledged inform requests.
Communities: Identifies devices that receive SNMP Traps and/or Syslog messages from the
F3400/F1000 and interacts with the F3400/F1000 over the network. To add a device to the
Communities list, select a community number posted as “empty”. Enter the receiving device’s
IP Address and a string that identifies the device. An IP Address of 0.0.0.0 in this field allows
any device to access the F3400/F1000 through an MIB browser. Select “Write” if the device
will have Read/Write network access. This allows the F3400/F1000 to be configured over the
network. Select “Traps” if the device will receive Traps from the F3400/F1000. Select
“Syslog” if the device will receive Syslog messages from the F3400/F1000.

Modbus Master Poll Timeout: Sets the amount of time the F3400/F1000 waits for a response
from the Slave device before moving on to read the next register. It is normally set to the default
of 1. It is adjustable from 1 to 10 seconds.
Modbus Master Poll Interval: Sets the amount of time from when a response is received from
a Slave to when the F3400/F1000 will ask for the next register and is adjustable from 250 to
2000ms. It is normally left at the 250ms default. The interval affects the overall scan rate. If the
F3400/F1000 is configured to read 60 Modbus variables and the poll interval is set to 1000ms
(1second), each Modbus variable will be read approximately once per minute.

CHAPTER 0
The F3400/F1000’s EIA-232 interface provides a more detailed and intricate view of the
F3400/F1000. It also allows a user to access more elaborate configuration options.
In order to proceed through this chapter, the F3400/F1000 must be connected to a PC via the
EIA232 port. If the F3400/F1000 is not yet connected to a PC, connect the F3400/F1000's
EIA232 COM1 port as follows:
1 Connect the EIA232 port on the F3400/F1000 to a terminal or PC running terminal
emulation software (HyperTerminal) with a 9-pin male-female straight through serial cable
(a serial cable is supplied with the F3400/F1000).

Unit Start Up
When the unit is powered up, diagnostic tests are performed and the Flash Program code is
verified. The main system code is executed after a 10 second delay. During the boot up
sequence, the System Status LED will flash at a rapid rate of 10 flashes per second. If the
System Status LED continues to flash for more then twenty seconds, there is a fault with the
unit and service is required.
5.2.
Flash Executable Code
After the bootup sequence, the main program executes from Flash memory. In order to run
properly, the unit must have a unique MAC address (assigned by the manufacturer) and an IP
address. The factory default for the IP address is 10.0.0.186. If the unit is connected to the
enterprise’s network, an IP address must be obtained from the network administrator. The
F3400/F1000 must be reconfigured with this new IP address. This reconfiguration can be done
in the field. See the Configuration Menu, menu number 1. Once the system reaches this point,

The IP Configuration Menu is accessed by typing a 1at the command prompt in the Main
Configuration Menu. This menu is used to establish IP/TCP and PPP interaction with the
network. The F3400/F1000 must be set up with an IP address, mask, and default router. These
addresses can be obtained from your Network Administrator or IT Department. To enable the
SNMP receiving stations (create communities), the F3400/F1000 MIB, provided on a diskette
with every unit, must be loaded on a system(s) running a Network Operating System (NOS).
This MIB is compiled through standard functions of the NOS. Consult with your Network
Administrator for proper installation of the F3400/F1000 MIB on the NOS. Once the MIB is
loaded, the F3400/F1000 can be discovered and configured over the network. For proper
operation, the IP addresses configured in the F3400/F1000 communities must match the IP
addresses on the receiving stations. Only the administrator's username/password may be
changed from this menu. All other Web users must be changed via the Web interface.

POINT-TO-POINT PROTOCOL
CHAPTER 0
Point-To-Point Protocol (PPP) is an alternate method that may be used to communicate with
the F3400/F1000. PPP can only be used through a modem, over a phone line. The F3400/F1000
and the user’s computer must both be configured correctly in order for PPP to work.
7.1.
Configuring the F3400/F1000
1 Access the F3400/F1000's Web interface.
2 Click the Configuration link. Enter the correct user name and password (if necessary).
3 From the Configuration Menu, click on the System link.
4 On the System Configuration page, click on the IP Configuration Menu link.
The IP Configuration page lists the IP addresses configured on the F3400/F1000. Both the
PPP Server and PPP Assignment fields need to be completed in order for PPP to work.
PPP Server: Assigns an IP address to the F3400/F1000 for PPP communications. Any IP
address may be used, as long as it is not in the same subnet as the F3400/F1000's primary IP
address. A good example of an IP address to use is: 192.168.1.2. Use this address to view the
F3400/F1000 Web interface through a browser when communicating with the F3400/F1000
through PPP.
PPP Assignment: Tells the F3400/F1000 what IP address to assign to the PC the user dials in
from. Again, any IP address may be used, as long as it is in the same subnet as the PPP Server
IP address. A good example of an IP address to use is: 192.168.1.3

970.484.6510
8 Upgrading Firmware and Managing Configuration Data
8.1.1 Upgrading F3400/F1000 Firmware via TFTP Client
This is the preferred method. However, it does not work with a PPP connection.
1 Download the most recent version of firmware appropriate for your F3400/F1000 from the
Documentation/Files section of the F-Series webpage at www.rletech.com. Save it to the
hard drive of your computer. Do not change the name of the file. The name of the file, as
downloaded from the RLE website, must remain the same.
2 The F3400/F1000 can only accept one copy of firmware at a time. Before a new version can
be uploaded, the oldest version must be deleted. To do this, access the Flash Program link
on the Configuration menu of the F3400/F1000’s Web interface. Click the Erase Backup
button to erase the oldest version of firmware. It will take approximately 10 seconds for the
firmware to be erased. A confirmation screen will appear once the firmware has been erased.
3 Click the Back button on your browser to return to the Flash Program screen. Reload this
page to ensure the oldest firmware has been erased. A Checksum value of FFFF tells you
the oldest firmware has been completely erased.
4 Uploading firmware via TFTP requires a TFTP Client. It may be possible to download a free
license TFTP Client from the Internet. Consult your IT department to determine a compatible
client program.
5 Verify that your PC and the F3400/F1000 are on the same subnetwork (LAN).
6 Open your TFTP client. Configure the client as follows.
a Host = F3400/F1000 IP Address
b Port = 69
c Block Size = 64, 128, 256, 512, or 1024
Note
The file must be sent in BINARY (not ASCII).
7 Send or PUT the firmware file to the F3400/F1000. It may take ~10 seconds for the firmware
upload to begin.
8 Reload the Flash Program Configuration page to ensure the new firmware has successfully
loaded onto the F3400/F1000.

commands.
4 From the F3400/F1000 Boot prompt, type ID and press ENTER. Note which Flash has the
lowest serial number. The Flash with the lowest serial number is the backup. The idea is to
erase the backup, load the new version, which becomes the active Flash, then erase and load
the other Flash.
5 From the F3400/F1000 Boot Prompt, erase the back up Flash program (the one with the
lowest serial number) by typing ERASE PRGM1or ERASE PRGM2 followed by ENTER. After a
second or so, the screen will update with an OK.
6 From the F3400/F1000 Boot prompt, type LOAD PRGM1 XMODEM or LOAD PRGM2 XMODEM followed
by Enter. Select the same program that was erased.
7 From the HyperTerminal menu select Transfer -> Send File. Use the browse button to
select the F3400/F1000 firmware file from the computer's directory. The file must be binary
and have a .bin extension. Select the file and upload it using the 1K X-Modem protocol.
Then click Send.
8 A transfer status screen will be displayed. The transfer time will take about 10 minutes. Once
the transfer is complete, the transfer status window will automatically close. The
HyperTerminal window will indicate that the upload is complete.
9 From the F3400/F1000 Boot prompt, type RUN or power down the F3400/F1000 and restart it
to verify that the new Flash program runs.
10 Press ENTER to display the F3400/F1000 Main Menu and repeat the steps above to erase
and download to the other Flash program chip.

Configuring the SeaHawk LD5100 as an Analog
Input
The F3400/F1000 averages/filters the analog inputs. The LD5100 will output approx. 3.95mA
when there is no leak. The LD5000 will output a value between 4mA and 20mA when there is a
water leak. The low limit 1 and low limit 2 set points should be set to a 0 value. High limit 1
should be set to a value, in feet, that represents 4.0mA (1 foot). This allows the F3400/F1000 to
alarm whenever there is a leak. The high limit 2 should be set to a value, in feet, that will control
the internal relay, if needed for the application. The Cable Fault relay, from the LD5100 should
be tied back into the F3400/F1000 to detect a fault with the 5100 controller/cable. The analog
output is only used for a Leak alarm distance.
