1. APPLICATION
RS-485/Ethernet converter PD8 type allows master devices
to transmit data via a wireless Ethernet network to the devices with
RS-232 and RS-485 interface.
The converter has three operating modes: RealPort network
service, serial bridge service with the UDP protocol, TCP Socket service.
In the first and third mode, the switching master device of the system
is a PC using Ethernet interface. In the second mode, the converter
works with a device with Master function and RS-232 and RS-485 serial
interfaces.
The converter PD8 to work with RealPort network service
requires the installation of a virtual serial port driver on a PC with
Microsoft Windows. Thanks to the PD8 type converters, this driver
provides the existing master systems, i.e. programs like Lumel Heat
and Lumel Process, the ability to transmit data between devices with RS-485
or RS-232 interface using Ethernet network (Fig. 1). When used in this
way, the converter allows to work with one master computer in the given
time. When using PD8 to support Modbus and Lumbus industrial protocols
- its correct interaction with master systems installed on a PC depends
on the built-in mechanisms to control time intervals between the received
transmission characters.

Fig.1. Example application of the PD8 converter
Using PD8 in the second mode, the RS-485 bus can be
expanded with successive segments using additional PD8 converters
and Ethernet local network. Properly configured, one pair of converters allows to build a system working in the serial bridge mode (Fig. 2).
It is also possible to configure their operation in „one-to-several”
mode (as a set including up to 65 converters – Fig. 3). Function 2
of the converter operates in the Ethernet local network with UDP datagram
protocol support.

Fig.3. Example application of the PD8 converter, serial bridge mode with UDP protocol
(point – multipoint).
Function 3 operation is very similar to the converter working with
RealPort network service except that it is not required to install software
virtual serial port driver on a PC with Windows. Communication between
a PC and PD8 converter is via TCP Socket mechanism. (More details in
paragraph 9.Operating mode with TCP socket service).

Caution:
In order to obtain full immunity of the converter against electromagnetic
noise in an environment, it is recommended to observe the following
principles:
•
do not supply the converter from the network in the proximity
of devices generating high pulse noises (inverters) and do not
apply common earthing circuits,
•
apply network filters,
•
all shields should be one-side earthed or connected to the
protection wire, the nearest possible to the converter,
•
as a rule of thumb, wires transmitting different signals should
be spaced as far as it is possible (at least 30 cm) and should
be crossed only at the right angle of 90o.

1. Click Start button, indicate the command Settings, click
the command Control Panel.
2. Double-click the System icon to open the System Properties
window. Select the System tab and click the Device Manager
button.
3. After the Device Manager window shows up (Fig. 45) in the
tree of available devices, expand the branch Ports
(COM and LPT). You can see in this example that there are three
serial ports COM1, COM2, LPT1 available. Once RealPort
driver is installed, there is port available in a system - virtual
- COM2 - labeled as PD8 Converter Port (Fig. 45).
54
Fig. 45: Sample list of devices
4. Expand the branch Multi-port serial adapters (Fig. 45),
which shows the PD8 converter installed (in Windows 98 it
appears as a „PD8 Converter”).
55
7.4. Example of Lumel Heat and Lumel Process configuration
to work with PD8
Lumel Heat and Lumel Process systems communicate with
industrial devices using serial COM ports.
After the installation of additional virtual serial COM ports you
can refer to them in LUMEL Series systems. Enter or change the supervisory appeal to added virtual ports in new or existing applications or
system configurations.
The parameter of maximum response time for the slave devices (timeout) available in master systems should be adjusted to the
correct value for PD8. The delay value can be up to 1000 ms and is
dependent on:
•
maximum response time of slave devices with MODBUS
protocol and RS-485 interface,
•
bandwidth of Ethernet network which the PD8 converter
is connected to.
8. SERIAL BRIDGE MODE WITH THE UDP PROTOCOL
The converter operation in the serial bridge mode enables
an expansion of the RS-485 bus by successive segments using additional
PD8 converters and Ethernet networks. Bridge configuration
in a local network allows you to create up to 65 access points between the
network RS-485 and Ethernet Wi-Fi using a 65 PD8 converters.
Serial bridge service configuration of a given converter can be
divided into four stages:
1. Determination of serial link transmission parameters.
2. Enabling client service, specifying the IP addresses and ports
of servers for other converters, which retransmit serial data
frames.
3. Defining frames caching of a serial transmission protocol.
4. Enabling a service server on the specified IP port of a configured
converter.
56
Setting the serial bridge operation mode is done by using the
configuration application on the webpage of the PD8, which is called by
the user via a web browser installed on user’s PC.
8.1. Determination of serial link transmission parameters
Select device options from the website navigation menu
Serial port to display the serial port settings (see section 6.4.2. Serial
port settings). Please make sure to set the same type of transmission
word for each connected converter when setting transmission parameters. The baud rate can be different between segments, but consistent
with settings of the devices connected to the RS-485 segment.
8.2. Configuration of client service operation
A user can configure a bridge client by selecting on option
Serial port from the website navigation menu and setting a port profile to
UDP Socket according to Fig. 46.
Fig. 46: Serial port profile setting
57
When a port profile has been already selected, a window will appear
as shown in Fig. 47. Select then the highlighted option Change profile
which will bring up a window shown in Fig. 46.
Fig. 47: Port profile change
Enable first the UDP client option to begin the configuration
process, as shown in Fig. 64. Complete the fields of converters’ IP
and ports addresses to retransmit frames the serial data according
to following rules:
- In case of connection in the relation 1 to 1, set in each
converter the address and IP port of the remaining converter
being in relation.
- In case of connection in the relation 1 to several, set in each
slave converter the address and IP port of the master converter.
However, in the master converter set all (up to 64) addresses
and ports of the slave converters remaining in relation.
The default IP port number for the serial bridge service is
2101. In case of a conflict with another network service using the same
port in the given local network - it is possible to change its number - both
for the bridge service server and the client.
58

59
After making changes, click Apply button to save them.
To set the new configuration, restart the device.
9. OPERATING MODE WITH TCP SOCKET SERVICE
Operation with TCP Socket service mode is very similar
to the mode with Real Port service. The only difference is the way
of communication with the PD8 device, which in this case, a direct
TCP/IP connection is used and providing PD8 IP address and a port
number.
TCP Socket service configuration of the given converter can
be divided into three stages:
1. Determination of serial link transmission parameters.
2. Defining frames caching of a serial transmission protocol.
3. Enabling a service server on the specified IP port of a configured
converter.
Setting the serial bridge operation mode is done by using
the configuration application on the webpage of the PD8, which is called
by the user via a web browser installed on user’s PC.
Enabling TCP Socket mode is similar to the UDP Socket,
select from the left side of a website navigation menu an option Serial
Port and set a port profile to TCP Socket according to Fig. 49.
60

Enable first the TCP client option to begin the configuration
process, as shown in Fig. 50.
