Fast commissioning / operating principle
3.3.1
Connecting the Leuze device
 To connect the Leuze device to the internal RS 232 device interface, open the housing
of the MA 258i and guide the corresponding device cable (see chapter 14.6, e.g., KB 031
for BCL 32) through the middle threaded opening.
 Connect the cable to the internal device interface (X30, X31 or X32, see chapter 7.5.1).
 Use rotary switch S4 (see chapter 8.2.5) to select the connected device.
 Now screw the PG cable gland into the threaded opening to provide strain relief and
ensure protection class IP 65.
Attention!
Only then may the supply voltage be applied.
Upon startup of the MA 258i, the device selection switch is queried and the gateway automatically sets itself to the Leuze device.
Connecting functional earth FE
 Ensure that the functional earth (FE) is connected correctly.
Unimpaired operation is only guaranteed when the functional earth is connected properly.
All electrical disturbances (EMC couplings) are discharged via the functional earth connection.
3.3.2
Connecting the power supply and the bus cable
 Ideally, use the ready-made cables listed in chapter 14.4.3 to connect the gateway to the
power supply via the PWR IN connection.
 The ready-made cables listed in chapter 14.5.4 are preferred for connecting the gateway
to the fieldbus via the HOST / BUS IN connection.
 If applicable, use the BUS OUT connection if you would like to construct a network with
linear topology.
3.4
Starting the device
 Apply the supply voltage +18 … 30 V DC (+24 V DC model); the MA 258i starts up. 
The MS LED displays that it is ready for operation.

MA 258i on EtherNet/IP
Commissioning on the EtherNet/IP is performed according to the following scheme:
• Address assignment (automatically via DHCP, BootP or manually)
• Configuration of the participant depends on the control software version: either by
using the generic EtherNet module or by installing the EDS file
• Transfer the data to the control
• Adapting the device parameters depends on the version of the control software: either
by configuring the config assembly or by adapting the EDS file
• Use explicit messaging services
The MA 258i can be configured in the planning tool/control using the EDS file if the control
supports this. PLC software RSLogix 5000 from Rockwell offers EDS support for EtherNet/
IP from software version 20.00 and up. Without PLC support of the EDS integration, the
settings are made via the "generic EtherNet module". In this case, the respective configuration must be entered and adapted manually for each device.
After all parameters have been set in the planning tool/control, the download to the MA 258i
takes place. The set parameters are now stored on the MA 258i.
Afterwards, all MA 258i parameters should be stored via upload in the control. This aids in
retaining the parameters during device exchanges, as they a re now also stored centrally in
the control.
The EtherNet/IP baud rate is defined for the entire network in the planning tool/control.

Adapting the device parameters
Configure the parameters via the config assembly
The MA 258i makes available a configuration assembly that allows the entire parameter set
of the MA 258i to be saved in the control and, if necessary, to be called up.
The config assembly must include all parameters that affect the MA 258i. The config
assembly is automatically written to the connected participants in cycles that the control
manufacturer defines.
The config assembly is implemented in class 4, under instance 118. By default, all parameters are preset to the value 0 (zero).
Attention!
If the config assembly is not adapted, the MA 258i displays a corresponding behavior acc.
to the parameters preset with 0.
 Double-click Controller tags to edit the configuration assembly.
The configuration assembly can be recognized by the index "C" appended to the device
name.
Parameter entry is performed as described in section "Setting MA parameters manually via
the config assembly" on page 75.
Attention!
Activation of the config assembly as described above necessitates value entry in the corresponding parameter memory locations. When using the configuration assembly, the default
parameters must also be entered in the corresponding memory locations (see also "Setting
MA parameters manually via the config assembly" on page 75).
After all of the parameters relevant to the MA 258i are entered, the control is switched to
"online" and the project is downloaded again.

The available lengths (4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 32, 64, 128, 240 bytes) of the input/output data are
stored here in "fixed" combinations. They cannot be freely combined. The MA can only process ONE combination (connection). 
Please select the suitable combination for the data length and the connected device. For
further information, see chapter 16 "Specifications for Leuze end devices".

Fast commissioning / operating principle
Notice!
Since the combination of Produced/Consumed data contains 2 bytes for the control and
status bytes, the actual user data length is always 2 bytes smaller than specified in the
selected combination. 
E.g., when using the combination with 12 bytes In/12 bytes Out, there are effectively 10 bytes
available for user data on the Leuze device after subtracting the 2 bytes for status and control
bytes.
Recommendation
A combination with 4 bytes of output data length is sufficient for most output data.
A longer length is needed, for example, if a BCL bar code scanner is to be configured by
means of PT-sequences, or an RFID transponder is to be described. In these cases, larger
combinations are usually advisable.
 Select the appropriate combination and transmit the settings to the device.

General Information to the connector units
The modular interfacing unit of the MA 2xxi family is a versatile gateway for integrating Leuze
RS 232 devices (e.g., BCL 22 bar code readers, RFID devices, RFM 32, AMS 200) in the
respective fieldbus. The MA 2xxi gateways are intended for use in industrial environments
with a high protection class. Various device versions are available for the conventional fieldbuses. With a stored parameter structure for the connectable RS 232 devices, commissioning could hardly be simpler.
4.2
Characteristics of the connector units
A special characteristic of the MA 258i device family are three function modes:
24
1.
Transparent mode
In this function mode, the MA 258i functions as a pure gateway with automatic communication from and to the PLC. Absolutely no special programming by the user is
necessary for this purpose. The data is not buffered or stored temporarily, however.
Instead, it is "passed on".
The programmer must make certain to retrieve the data from the input memory of the
PLC at the right time, as it is otherwise overwritten by new data.
2.
Collective mode
In this operating mode, data and telegram parts are temporarily stored in the memory
(buffer) of the MA and sent to the RS 232 interface or to the PLC in a telegram by means
of bit activation. In this mode, however, all communication control must be programmed on the PLC.
This function mode is helpful, for example, for very long telegrams or when one or
more codes with long code lengths are read.
3.
Command mode
With this special operating mode, it is possible to use the first bytes of the data range
to transmit predefined commands to the connected device by means of bit activation.
For this purpose, device-dependent commands (so-called online commands) are predefined via the device selection switch, see chapter 16 "Specifications for Leuze end
devices".

Device construction
The MA 258i modular interfacing unit is used for interconnecting Leuze devices, such as
the BCL 8, BCL 22, etc., directly to the fieldbus. This is accomplished by transmitting the
data from the Leuze device via an RS 232 (V.24) interface to the MA 258i where a module
converts it into the fieldbus format. The data format of the RS 232 interface corresponds to
the standard Leuze data format.

Connection of a Leuze device (BCL, RFI, RFM, VR) to the fieldbus
The cable of the respective Leuze device is guided through cable bushings with PG cable
glands into the MA 258i and connected there with the PCB connectors.
The MA 258i is intended as a gateway for any RS 232 devices, e.g., BCL 90 with MA 90,
hand-held scanners, scales or for coupling a multiNet network.
The RS 232 cables are internally connectable using JST plug connectors. The cable can be
connected to the device using a stable PG cable gland which provide strain relief and protection against contamination.
With the help of adapter cables with Sub-D 9 or open cable end, other RS 232 devices can
also be connected.

Operating modes
For fast commissioning, the MA 258i offers an additional operating mode, the "Service
mode", in addition to the "Standard mode". In this operating mode, the Leuze device can,
for example, be configured on the MA 258i and the network settings of the MA can be
displayed. To do this, you need a PC/laptop with a suitable terminal program, as BCL-Config
from Leuze or similar.
Service switch
Select between "operation" and "service" modes with the service switch. You have the
following options:
Pos. RUN:
Operation
The Leuze device is connected to the fieldbus and communicates with the PLC.
Pos. DEV:
Service Leuze device
The connection between the Leuze device and the fieldbus is interrupted. With this
switch position, you can communicate directly with the Leuze device at the fieldbus
gateway via RS 232. You can send online commands via the service interface, configure the Leuze device using the corresponding BCL- BPS-, …-Config configuration
software and have the read data of the Leuze device output.
Pos. MA:
Service fieldbus gateway
With this switch setting, your PC/terminal is connected with the fieldbus gateway.In
doing so, the current setting values of the MA (e.g. address, RS 232 parameters) can
be called up via a command.
Figure 4.2:
Service-switch switch positions
Notice!
If the service switch is on one of the service settings, the MS LED flashes on the front side
of the device, see chapter 8.1.2 "LED indicators on the housing".
Furthermore, on the control, the SMA service bit of the status bytes signals that the MA is
in service mode.

4.5
Fieldbus systems
4.5.1
EtherNet/IP
The MA 258i is designed as an EtherNet/IP device (acc. to IEEE 802.3) with a standard baud
rate of 10/100 Mbit. The functionality of the device is defined via parameter sets which are
clustered in objects, classes and instances. These objects … are contained in an EDS file
which, depending on the version of the control software, can be used to configure and integrate the MA into the system. PLC software RSLogix 5000 from Rockwell offers EDS
support for EtherNet/IP from software version 20.00 and up. A fixed MAC ID is assigned to
each MA 258i by the manufacturer; this ID cannot be changed.
The MA 258i automatically supports the transmission rates of 10 Mbit/s (10Base T) and
100 Mbit/s (10Base TX), as well as auto-negotiation and auto-crossover.
The MA 258i features multiple M 12 connectors / sockets for the electrical connection of the
supply voltage, the interface and the switching inputs and outputs. Additional information
on the electrical connection can be found in chapter 7.

Device description
Each participant in this network requires its own unique IP address, which must be assigned
to it via BootP or the control software. Alternatively, the DHCP procedure can be used.
The maximum length of a segment (connection from the hub to the last participant) is limited
to 100 m.
Communication
The MA 258i gateway supports the CIP-based EtherNet/IP protocol and requires the setup
of a GENERIC module or the EDS file (Electronic Data Sheet), depending on the control software used, for communication.
Notice!
Rockwell RSLogix 5000 supports EDS integration for EIP from software version 20.00 and
up.
The EDS file is available for download from the Leuze home page.
You can find the EDS file at:
www.leuze.com -> Download -> identify -> Modular interfacing units.
The EDS file is named "MA258i.eds"; the corresponding icon is named "MA258i.ico".
The EDS file includes all communication parameters of the participants as well as the available objects.
The input/output data is addressed according to the following fundamental scheme:
2.
3.
4.
5.
Device address (MAC ID)
The participant is addressed with its MAC ID, which is unique in the network.
Object class identifier (class)
Used as the basis for addressing the desired object class.
Object instance identifier (instance)
Addressing of the object instance within the object class.
Attribute identifier (attribute)
Addressing of the attribute within the object instance.
Service code (get, set, reset, start, stop and others...)
The maintenance code ultimately describes the type of access to the data, e.g.,
reading or writing.

The standard devices are connected with 6- or 10-pin connector piece to X31 or X32,
respectively. For hand-held scanners, BCL 8 and BPS 8 with 5 V DC supply (from the MA)
on pin 9, the 12-pin X30 PCB connection is available as well.
By using an additional cable (cf. "Type overview and accessories" on page 92), the system
connection can be established on M 12 or 9-pin Sub-D, e.g., for hand-held scanners.

Service interface (internal)
Figure 7.6:
RS 232 service switch and service interface
Following activation, this interface enables access via the RS 232 to the connected Leuze
device and the MA for configuration using the 9-pin Sub-D. The connection between the
fieldbus interface and the device interface is switched off during access. The fieldbus itself
is, however, not interrupted as a result.
The service interface can be accessed once the MA 258i housing cover has been removed
and features a 9-pin Sub-D connector (male). A crossed RS 232 connection cable is required
to make the RxD, TxD and GND connections. A hardware handshake via RTS, CTS is not
supported at the service interface.

Configuration
The MA 258i can be configured using the EDS file via the device manager of the control. In
case the PLC does not (yet) offer this service (RSLogix 5000 supports it from version 20.00
and up), a generic module and the manual config assembly must be employed.
The connected device is normally configured via the service interface of the MA with the
help of a suitable configuration program.
The respective configuration programs – e.g. for bar code readers the BCL-Config, for RFID
devices the RF-Config etc. – and the associated documentation is provided on the Leuze
home page in the Download area:

Structure of the fieldbus telegram
All operations are performed by control and status bits. Two bytes of control information
and two bytes of status information are available for this purpose. The control bits are a part
of the output module and the status bits are a part of the input bytes. The data starts with
the third byte.
If the actual data length is longer than the data length configured in the gateway, only part
of the data is transmitted; the remaining data is lost. In this case, the DL (data loss) bit is set.

CTB
Copy to transmit buffer
(transmission data to transmit buffer)
Toggle bit: Changing this bit writes the data from the PLC to
the transmit buffer of the fieldbus gateway. This is used, for
example, for long command strings which must be transmit- 1.3
ted to the connected ident device.
The CTB toggle bit is switched whenever transmit data is not
to be sent directly via the serial interface, but instead transferred to the transmit buffer.
Bit

Default
0->1: Data in buffer

1->0: Data in buffer
Notice!
The state change of the CTB bit signals the MA that the data is going into the buffer; therefore,
it's essential to observe the order! 
When the CTB is not used, the telegram (which fits in one cycle) is transmitted directly to
the RS 232 interface. Please make sure it is complete!

RESET function / deleting memory
For many applications, it is helpful to be able to reset the MA buffer (in Collective mode) or
status bits.
The following bit pattern can be transmitted from the PLC for this purpose (if >20 ms is
pending):

11.1
Functionality of the data exchange
The fieldbus gateway has two different modes that can be selected via the PLC:
• Transparent mode (standard setting)
In Transparent mode, all data are sent 1:1 and directly by the serial end device to the
PLC. It is not necessary to use status and control bits here. However, only data bytes
possible for one transmission cycle are transmitted - all others are lost.
The distance between two successive telegrams (without frame) must be more than
20 ms, since there is otherwise no clear separation between them.
ASCII characters are typically expected as data content; under certain circumstances,
the MA therefore detects different control characters as invalid characters in the data
range and truncates them. At 00h in the data range, the MA cuts the telegram off
because unnecessary bytes are also filled with 00h .
• Collective mode
In Collective mode, the data of the serial end device is stored temporarily in the fieldbus
gateway by toggling the CTB bit and is not sent to the PLC in blocks until prompted
to do so by the PLC.
On the PLC, a status bit (DEX) then signals that new data is ready for retrieval. This
data is then read out from the fieldbus gateway in blocks (toggle bit).
In order to distinguish between the individual telegrams on the PLC, in Collective mode
the serial frame is sent to the PLC in addition to the data.
The size of the buffer is 1 kByte.
Notice!
In Collective mode, the CTB and SFB bits are needed for communication handling via the
buffer. Telegrams that can also be completely transmitted in one cycle in Collective mode
(including data frame) go directly through. If PLC data is provided and transferred without a
state change of the CTB bit, it goes directly to the RS 232 interface with the set telegram
data length. Incomplete (incl. data frame) or faulty telegrams can cause error messages in
the connected device!
Combination with the Command mode is possible.
Data exchange in blocks must be programmed on the PLC.

Modes
11.1.1 Reading slave data in Collective mode (gateway -> PLC)
If the Leuze device transmits data to the fieldbus gateway, the data is stored temporarily in
a buffer. The PLC is signaled via the "DEX" bit that data is ready for retrieval in the memory.
Data is not automatically transmitted.
If no further user data is present in the MA 258i ("DEX" bit = "0"), the "R-ACK" bit must be
toggled once as read confirmation to release data transmission for the next read cycle.
If the buffer still contains more data ("DEX bit = 1), the next remaining user data present in
the buffer is transmitted by toggling the "R-ACK" control bit. This process is to be repeated
until the "DEX" bit returns to "0"; all data has then been removed from the buffer. "R-ACK"
must be toggled here again once more as a terminating read confirmation in order to release
data transmission for the next read cycle.
Used status and control bits:
•
•
•
•
DLC
BLR
DEX
R-ACK
11.1.2 Writing slave data in Collective mode (PLC -> gateway)
Writing in blocks
The data sent by the master to the slave is first collected in a "transmit buffer" by setting
the "CTB" bit (Copy to transmit buffer). Please observe that data provided is transmitted
directly by toggling the bit.
Afterward, the buffer is again empty and can be written with new data.
Notice!
With this function, it is possible to temporarily store longer data strings in the gateway independent of how many bytes the used fieldbus can transmit at once. With this function, longer
PT sequences or RFID write sequences, for example, can be transmitted, since the connected devices can, in this way, receive their commands (e.g., PT or W) in a continuous string.
The respective frame (STX CR LF) is needed to differentiate between the individual telegrams.
Used status and control bits:
• CTB
• SFB
• W-ACK
Leuze electronic
MA 258i
63
TNT 35/7-24V
The data is then sent in the order received from the buffer to the connected Leuze device
via the serial interface with the command: "SFB" (Send data from transmit buffer). Please
don't forget the suitable data frame!
Modes
If PLC data is provided and transferred without a state change of the CTB bit, it goes directly
to the RS 232 interface with the set telegram data length. Incomplete (incl. data frame) or
faulty telegrams can cause error messages in the connected device!
Examples for the activation of a Leuze device
In the data part (starting at byte 2) of the telegram to the gateway, a "+" (ASCII) is sent for
activation.
This means that the hex value "2B" (corresponds to a "+") is to be entered in control or output
byte 2. To deactivate the reading gate, a "2D" (hex) must be used instead (corresponds to
a "-" ASCII).

Command mode
One specific feature is the so-called Command mode, which is defined via the output control
byte 0 (bit 0) ... and enables the control of the connected device per bit.
If the command mode is activated (command mode = 1), no data is sent by the PLC to the
Leuze end device via the gateway. The data from the MA to the PLC is transmitted in the
selected operating mode (Transparent/Collective).
With the Command mode, it is possible to set various device-specific bits in the data- or
parameter field that execute the corresponding serial commands (e.g., v, +, -, etc.). If, for
example, the version of the Leuze end device is to be queried, the corresponding bit is to
be set so that a "v" is sent to the Leuze device with the <STX> v <CR> <LF> frame.
The Leuze end device also answers the gateway with data (e.g. bar code content, NoRead,
device version, etc.) in response to most commands. The answer is immediately passed on
to the PLC by the gateway.
Notice!
The parameters available for the individual Leuze devices are listed in chapter 16.
Command mode cannot be used with hand-held scanners.
Examples for the activation of a Leuze device
In Command mode, control or output byte 0.0 is to be set for activating the Command mode.
Only the corresponding bit (control or output byte 2.1) then needs to be set for activating
and deactivating the reading gate.

Commissioning and configuration
Unimpaired operation is only guaranteed when the functional earth is connected properly.
All electrical disturbances (EMC couplings) are discharged via the functional earth connection.
On delivery, the SWIO 1/2 are connected in parallel on PWR IN/OUT. This connection can
be separated with a jumper.
12.2
Starting the device and setting the communication parameters
As a first step, you need to start the device and set the communication parameters of the
MA 258i. With the communication parameters, you determine how data is exchanged
between the MA and host system, monitor PCs etc.
The communication parameters are independent of the topology in which the MA 258i is
operated (see "EtherNet topologies" on page 34).
On delivery, the automatic address assignment via DHCP server is defined as the standard
setting of the MA 258i.
12.2.1
Manually setting the IP address
To set the IP address manually, the DHCP operation via BootP or the Rockwell control must
be deactivated.

The MA 258i makes available a configuration assembly that allows the entire parameter set
of the MA 258i to be saved in the control and, if necessary, to be called up.
The config assembly must include all parameters that affect the MA 258i. The config
assembly is automatically written to the connected participants in cycles that the control
manufacturer defines.
The config assembly is implemented in class 4, under instance 118. By default, all parameters are preset to the value 0 (zero).

Configuration steps for a Rockwell control with EDS support
The following steps are necessary for commissioning with a Rockwell control:
• Creation of the EtherNet participants in PLC software RSLogix 5000 from Version
20.00 and up (with EDS support)
• Installation of the EDS file using the EDS wizard.
• Setting the parameters on the MA via the module.
12.4.1 Integrating the hardware into the PLC and installing the EDS file
To integrate the device and to establish a connection between the PLC and the device
MA 258i, proceed as follows:
 First, load the EDS file for the device via EDS wizard into the PLC database.
Notice!
You can find the EDS file at:
www.leuze.com -> Download -> identify-> Modular interfacing units.
 After loading, select the device via the device list and enter it into the HW manager via
Drag&Drop.
 Open the input dialog for setting the address and additional parameters by doubleclicking on the device symbol and make the desired entries here.
 Finally, transmit the values to the device via download.
After the EDS file has been integrated, the device must be created as a "module" to establish
a connection. It is also helpful to assign an IP address to the MA beforehand, e.g. via the
service interface.
 To do this, double-click on the tree node EtherNet.
 In the new window, select the desired device from the database and carry out the respective configuration.

 Then, via the Change button, select the input/output data length of the module from a
list of possible combinations by clicking on Connection.
Notice!
The available lengths (4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 32, 64, 128, 240 bytes) of the input/output data are
stored here in "fixed" combinations. They cannot be freely combined. The MA can only process ONE combination (connection). 
Please select the suitable combination for the data length and the connected device. For
further information, see chapter 16 "Specifications for Leuze end devices".
Notice!
Since the combination of Produced/Consumed data contains 2 bytes for the control and
status bytes, the actual user data length is always 2 bytes smaller than specified in the selected combination. 
E.g., when using the combination with 12 bytes In/12 bytes Out, there are effectively 10 bytes
available for user data on the Leuze device after subtracting the 2 bytes for status and control
bytes.
Recommendation
A combination with 4 bytes of output data length is sufficient for most output data.
A longer length is needed, for example, if a BCL bar code scanner is to be configured by
means of PT-sequences, or an RFID transponder is to be described. In these cases, larger
combinations are usually advisable.
 Select the appropriate combination and transmit the settings to the device.

Variable configuration of the communication data width
The communication of the MA 2xxi with the fieldbus system can be configured with a variable data width; the upper limit is restricted by the fieldbus. For EtherNet/IP, a value between
4 and 480 bytes (240 bytes each for input and output data) can be set.
The small data lengths (< 28 bytes) are particularly of interest for use with bar code scanners
(BCL). The larger data lengths are, on the other hand, relevant for 2D code scanners (handheld scanners, LSIS) and RFID.
Notice!
The representation of the (Rockwell) control is usually set to double word (DINT, 4 bytes).
Please observe that in this representation, the byte sequence can vary in contrast to the read
code. We thus recommend creating the settings using SINT.
After all parameters have been set in the planning tool/control, the download to the MA 258i
takes place. The set parameters are now stored on the MA 258i.
Afterwards, all MA 258i parameters should be stored via upload in the control. This aids in
retaining the parameters during device exchanges, as they a re now also stored centrally in
the control.

The EtherNet baud rate is defined for the entire network in the planning tool/control. The
baud rate is set on the MA 258i via the S3 baud rate selector switch.
Only if the baud rates are the same is communication with the MA 258i possible.

EDS file - general info
The EDS file contains all identification and communication parameters of the device, as well
as the available objects. PLC software RSLogix 5000 from Rockwell offers EDS support for
EtherNet/IP from software version 20.00 and up.
The MA 258i is uniquely classified via a class 1 identity object (component of the
MA258i.eds file) for the EtherNet master.
The identity object contains, among other things, a manufacturer-specific vendor ID, as well
as an ID that describes the principle function of the participant.
The MA 258i has the following identity object (class 1):
Vendor ID: 524 dec./ 20CH
Device type: 12 dec / 0CH (labels the MA 258i as "communications adapter")
Position sensor type: product type 04 (specifies the MA 258i as "gateway")
• Polling
• Cyclic
• Combinations of polling and cyclic
are supported by the MA 258i.
Communication access via change of state is not implemented and must not be activated
in the network configuration.
If accepting the objects without change, all parameters are set to default values. The default
settings are shown in the objects described in detail in the "Default" column.
Notice!
In the following tables, all attributes marked in the "Access" column with "Get" in the individual objects are to be understood as inputs of the MA (control). 

Setting the read parameters on the Leuze device
Commissioning the Leuze device
To commission a read station, you must prepare the Leuze device on the MA 258i for its
reading task. Communication with the Leuze device occurs via the service interface.
Notice!
For further information on connecting and using the service interface, see chapter 9 "Configuration".
 To do this, connect the Leuze device to the MA 258i.
Depending on the Leuze device, this occurs either via a connection cable (accessory no.:
KB 031-1000) or directly on the MA 258i. The service connector and corresponding
switches can be accessed with the housing cover open.
 Select the "DEV" service switch position.
Connect the service interface; call up the terminal program
 Connect your PC to the service connector via the RS 232 cable.
 On the PC, call up a terminal program (e.g., BCL-Config) and check whether the interface
(COM 1 or COM 2) to which you have connected the MA 258i is set to the following Leuze
standard setting: 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit and STX, data, CR, LF.
In order to communicate with the connected Leuze device, the STX, data, CR, LF framing
must be set on the PC terminal program, as the Leuze device is preconfigured ex works for
this frame character.
STX (02h):
Prefix 1
CR (0Dh):
Postfix 1
LF (0Ah):
Postfix 2
Operation
 Switch the MA 258i to switch position "RUN" (operation).
The Leuze device is now connected to the fieldbus. Activation of the Leuze device can now
occur via the switching input on the MA 258i, via the process data word Out-bit 1 (bit 0.2)
or by transmitting a "+" command to the Leuze device (see chapter 16 "Specifications for
Leuze end devices"). For further information on the fieldbus transmission protocol, see
chapter 10 "Telegram".

Reading out information in service mode
 Set the service switch of the gateway to switch position "MA" (gateway).
 Send a "v" command to call up all service information of the MA 258i.
An overview of the available commands and information can be found in chapter "Reading
out information in Service mode" on page 50.
12.7.1
Specific feature for the use of hand-held scanners 
(bar code and 2D devices, combi devices with RFID)
Notice!
For a description of device configuration and the required codes, please see the corresponding documentation at www.leuze.com -> Download -> identify -> Bar code hand-held
readers or 2D code hand-held readers.
12.7.1.1 Cable-connected hand-held scanners on the MA 258i
All hand-held scanners and mobile combi devices available in the Leuze electronic product
line can be used with the corresponding connection cable.
When using the MA 258i, the voltage supply of the hand-held scanner (5 V/at 1 A) can be
connected to the interface by means of a cable via the 9-pin Sub-D connector (voltage on
PIN 9). The corresponding cable is to be selected for the respective hand-held scanner and
ordered separately. The 9-pin Sub-D cable (KB JST-HS-300, part no. 50113397) is
connected to this cable, which is connected to the MA 258i. This cable must also be ordered
separately.
In this example, triggering occurs by means of a trigger button on the hand-held scanner.
12.7.1.2 Wireless hand-held scanners on the MA 258i
All wireless hand-held scanners and mobile combi devices available in the Leuze electronic
product line can be used with the corresponding connection cable via the base station.
A 230 VAC connection (socket) is usually necessary for the charging station. Here, a data
connection of the charging station is established with the MA 258i. The corresponding cable
is to be selected for the respective hand-held scanner and ordered separately. Connect this
cable to the 9-pin Sub-D cable (KB JST-HS-300, part no. 50113397), which is connected
to the MA 258i. This cable must also be ordered separately.
In this example, triggering occurs by means of a trigger button on the hand-held scanner.
The following codes for configuring the devices are necessary for these devices as well.

12.7.2 Specific features in the operation of an RFM/RFI
When using the MA 258i in connection with an RFID device, we recommend a data width
of at least 24 bytes to be able to transmit information to or from the reader in a telegram.
Shown here is a sample telegram for a write command in combination with an RFID device.
Notice!
Also note that all characters which are sent to a transponder are hex-encoded ASCII characters. Each of these (hexadecimal) characters is, in turn, to be handled as an individual ASCII
character and converted to hexadecimal format for transmission via the fieldbus.

Specifications for Leuze end devices
Serial interface and Command mode
The corresponding Leuze end device can be selected while configuring the fieldbus gateway
(see chapter 9 "Configuration").
The exact specifications for the individual Leuze end devices can be found in the following
sections and in the device description.
The corresponding serial command is sent to the Leuze end device in Command mode. To
send the corresponding command to the RS 232 device after activating the Command
mode in byte 0 (control bit 0.0), set the corresponding bit in byte 2.
The Leuze end device also responds to most commands by sending data, such as the bar
code contents, NoRead, device version, etc., back to the gateway. The answer is not evaluated by the gateway, but is instead passed on to the PLC.
For the BPS 8, AMS and hand-held scanners, a number of specific features are to be noted.
16.1
Standard setting, KONTURflex (S4 switch position 0)
This switch position can be used with almost all devices, since a data frame is transmitted
along with it if necessary. A 00h in the data range of the control is interpreted as the end of
a telegram/invalid, however.
The distance between two successive telegrams (without frame) must be more than 20 ms
in this switch position, since there is otherwise no clear separation between them. If necessary, the settings have to be adjusted on the device.
Leuze measuring sensors with RS 232 interface (such as a KONTURflex Quattro RS) do not
necessarily use a telegram frame, which is why these are also operated in switch position 0.

in S4 switch position F. The procedure for doing this is described in chapter 16.14.
