System overview
Up to 10 cordless tools can be controlled using one TMEB-COM installation. The number of tools
which can be controlled from TMEB-200, depends on installed software. Each node in the network requires an IP address.
The IP settings and WLAN settings in the tools are programmed via the infrared interface. Programming and setup are described in the TMEB-200 / TMEB-COM programming manual.

Installation
Different installations are required depending on the specific application and location of use. The
following chapters describe the basic procedure.
3.1
General notes
The 17BPW... and 47BAW... series tools operate in the license-free 2.4 GHz ISM band. Use of
this band is permitted in most countries.
The tools operate in what is known as World Mode, meaning that channels 1 to 11
(2.412 – 2.462 GHz) are used according to IEEE 802.11b. Thus it may be operated in most European countries, the USA and Canada.
CAUTION!
•
•
It is mandatory that national, state and local codes and standards be followed.
Before exchanging components or supplementary equipment, isolate the power supply.
The operating range of the wireless transmission can vary considerably depending on the installation location of the access point. Observe the following points during installation:
3.2
1.
Set up the access point as close to the centre of the tools used as possible. Generally
speaking, the following applies: the higher you position the access point, the better the
reception will be.
2.
You will have the best range if there is a clear line of sight between the access point and
tool. If possible, no walls or ceilings should be in between. If this is unavoidable, the signal
should cross the wall or ceiling at as steep an angle as possible. Position the access point
so that the signal can go directly through a wall or ceiling.
3.
Maintain a minimum clearance of 3 – 6 m (9’ 10.11” – 19’ 8.22”) from devices that generate
high-frequency interference, such as microwaves.
WLAN network conforming to IEEE 802.11b/g standard
Tools of the 17BPW… and 47BAW… series can communicate with a wireless network according
to the IEEE 802.11b standard. The tools can be integrated into an existing wireless network or a
local network with an access point can be set up.
The IP settings and WLAN settings in the tool must be programmed via the infrared interface.
Programming and setup are described in the TMEB-200 / TMEB-COM programming manual.

System overview
3.2.1
Local network without switch
For small installations with no more than one TMEB-200 / TMEB-COM installation, the access
point can be connected directly to the TMEB or PC.
If the TMEB-200 is used, the access point must be set up using an additional PC/notebook. If a
PC with TMEB-COM is used, the access point can also be set up using this PC.
When setting up the access point, please use the respective user manual. The basic setup for
the DWL-3200AP Access Point (order no. 961323) is described in the Appendix. Programming
the communication with the tools is described in the programming manual of the TMEB-200 /
TMEB-COM.
When the DWL-3200AP Access Point (order no. 961323) is used, a standard or crossover
Ethernet cable can be used for the connection.
The network settings of the access point and TMEB-200 / TMEB-COM can be selected as
desired. However, it is necessary for the IP address and subnet mask of the PC or notebook to
be in the same range as those of the access point.

Local network with switch
If multiple controllers are to communicate with the tools via one access point, a switch is
required.
If the TMEB-200 is used exclusively, the access point must be set up using an additional PC/
notebook. If a PC with TMEB-COM is used, the access point can also be set up using this PC.
When setting up the access point, please use the respective user manual. Programming the
communication with the tools is described in the programming manual of the TMEB-200 /

The network settings of the access point and TMEB-200 / TMEB-COM can be selected as

Cell planning for access point
Data transmission according to the IEEE 802.11b standard uses 22 MHz. Therefore, only the
3 independent channels 1, 6 and 11 are available.
To minimize interference between different radio cells that share the same radio channel, it is
necessary to physically separate them. Note that for multistory buildings, it is necessary to consider both higher and lower floors.
The following overview shows the basic channel assignment.
Area of use of the tools
Channel 11
Channel 1
Channel 6
Idealized radio cells
The physical circumference of a radio cell depends primarily on the access point used, the
antennas and the type of construction in the surrounding area. The limit of a radio cell is reached
when the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) falls below 15 dB. If the ratio falls below this value, a new
radio cell should be started. The SNR value of the current position can be displayed on the tool in
the Radio settings menu. The typical circumference of a radio cell in a building is up to 50 m
(164’ 0.5”).
For the tool to be able to connect to different access points automatically, the SSID and encryption must be configured identically at the corresponding access points.
Note
If wide-area coverage with controlled emission from multiple access points is required,
corresponding planning and evaluation must be carried out for the specific case.

Without network administration, it is necessary
for the IP address and subnet mask of the PC/
notebook to be in the same range as those of
the access point.
Enter the same subnet mask for both IP
addresses and use the same first three numbers for the IP addresses on both the controller
and base station.
E.g.:IP address PC/notebook: 192.168.0.xxx
IP address access point: 192.168.0.xxx
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Reset the access point to the default settings.
To do so, press the <Reset> button on the
back of the access point for at least 10 seconds. The default IP address is 192.168.0.50.

Setting up the DWL-3200AP Access Point
A detailed description of the access point is included in the scope of delivery and online help of
the access point. As an additional reference, the basic operating steps are described here.
6.1.1
Accessing the access point via web browser
The access point is programmed and set up using a web browser such as Internet Explorer. This
requires a PC or notebook. As an alternative to access via web browser, the D-Link AirPremier
AP Manager program on the provided CD can be used.
1.
Connect the access point to the PC or notebook using an Ethernet cable (standard or crossover). Alternatively, you can use an Ethernet switch to which all devices are connected.
2.
Launch the web browser. In the Internet Options under Connections, disable the proxy
server in the LAN settings or, as an exception, enter the IP address of the access point. If
the access point's IP address is unknown, it must be reset to the default settings. To do so,
press the <Reset> button on the back of the access point for at least 10 seconds. The
default IP address is 192.168.0.50. The default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.
3.
In the address bar of the web browser, enter http:// and the IP address of the access point
and press <ENTER>. It is necessary for the IP address and subnet mask of the PC or notebook to be in the same range as those of the access point. The PC/notebook must then
have an IP address in the range 192.168.0.xxx. If necessary, change the IP address and
subnet mask in the network settings of the PC or notebook.
