LPS 36 HI
Line profile sensor
Establish connection to PC
The LPS is configured via a PC using the LPSsoft program before it is integrated into the process control.
In order to be able to establish an UDP communication with the PC, the IP address of your PC and the IP address of the LPS
must lie in the same address range. The LPS has no built-in DHCP client, so that you need to set the address manually. This is
done the easiest way via the PC.
Notice!
If you are using a desktop firewall, please ensure that the control can communicate with the LPS via the Ethernet
interface on ports 9008 and 5634 using UDP. Furthermore, the firewall must allow ICMP echo messages to
pass through for the connection test (ping).
If the PC is usually connected to a network using DHCP address allocation, the easiest way to access the LPS is by applying an
alternative configuration in the TCP/IP settings of the PC and connecting the LPS directly to the PC.
 Check the network address of the LPS by pressing the  button on the key pad of the sensor during normal operation
of the LPS twice in succession, then by pressing  twice and followed by pressing the

button again.
This will take you to the Ethernet submenu and enable you to read the current settings of the LPS consecutively when pressing
 repeatedly.
 Make a note of the values for IP-Address and Net Mask Addr..
The value in Net Mask Addr. specifies which digits of the IP address of the PC and LPS must match so that they can
communicate with each other.
Address of the LPS
192.168.060.003
192.168.060.003
Net mask
255.255.255.0
255.255.0.0
Address of the PC
192.168.060.xxx
192.168.xxx.xxx
Instead of xxx you can now allocate any numbers between 000 and 255 to your PC, but NOT THE SAME numbers as contained
in the address of the LPS.
For example 192.168.060.110 (but not 192.168.060.003!). If LPS and PC have the same IP address, they cannot communicate
with each other.
Configuring the IP address for a PC
 Log in to your PC as an administrator.
 Using Start->System control go to the Network connections
(Windows XP) menu or to the Network center and release
center (Windows Vista) menu.
 There select the LAN connection and bring up the associated
Features page by right clicking with the mouse.
 Select the Internet protocol (TCP/IP) (by scrolling down, if
necessary) and click on Properties.
 In the Internet protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window select
the Alternate configuration tab.
 Configure the IP address of the PC in the address range of the LPS.
Attention: do not use the same as for the LPS!
 Set the Subnet mask of the PC to the same value as the one for the
LPS.
 Close the configuration dialog by confirming all windows using OK.
 Connect the interface X2 of the LPS directly to the LAN port of your
PC. Use a KB ET-…-SA-RJ45 cable for the connection.
The PC will first try to establish a network connection via the automatic configuration. This will take a few seconds. Following that the alternative configuration, which you have just set up, is activated, and
thus the PC can communicate with the LPS.
Information about configuring the LPS using LPSsoft software can be found in the Technical Description.

Commissioning
For the commissioning and integration of the sensor in the process control the following steps are necessary:
1. Configuring the LPS - see chapter 8 of the Technical Description.
2. Programming process control - see chapter 9 of the Technical Description.
3. Adapt the IP configuration of the LPS such that it can communicate with the process control. This can be done either via the
display of the LPS or in LPSsoft in the Configuration area. Here you can change network address and associated net mask
as well as the ports via which the LPS communicates with process control.
4. Save the changed settings in the LPS using the Configuration->Transmit to sensor command.
5. Connect LPS to process control via the Ethernet interface.
6. Establish connections for activation, triggering and cascading, if necessary.

The LPS is configured via a PC using the LPSsoft program before it is integrated into the process control.
In order to be able to establish an UDP communication with the PC, the IP address of your PC and the IP address of the LPS
must lie in the same address range. The LPS has no built-in DHCP client, so that you need to set the address manually. This is
done the easiest way via the PC.
Notice!
If you are using a desktop firewall, please ensure that the control can communicate with the LPS via the Ethernet

Instead of xxx you can now allocate any numbers between 000 and 255 to your PC, but NOT THE SAME numbers as contained
in the address of the LPS.
For example 192.168.060.110 (but not 192.168.060.003!). If LPS and PC have the same IP address, they cannot communicate
with each other.
Configuring the IP address for a PC
 Log in to your PC as an administrator.
 Using Start->System control go to the Network connections
(Windows XP) menu or to the Network center and release
center (Windows Vista) menu.
 There select the LAN connection and bring up the associated

 Select the Internet protocol (TCP/IP) (by scrolling down, if
necessary) and click on Properties.
 In the Internet protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window select
the Alternate configuration tab.
 Configure the IP address of the PC in the address range of the LPS.
Attention: do not use the same as for the LPS!
 Set the Subnet mask of the PC to the same value as the one for the
LPS.
 Close the configuration dialog by confirming all windows using OK.
 Connect the interface X2 of the LPS directly to the LAN port of your
PC. Use a KB ET-…-SA-RJ45 cable for the connection.
The PC will first try to establish a network connection via the automatic
configuration. This will take a few seconds. Following that the alternative configuration, which you have just set up, is activated,
and thus the PC can communicate with the LPS.
Information about configuring the LPS using LPSsoft software can be found in the Technical Description.

Commissioning
For the commissioning and integration of the sensor in the process control the following steps are necessary:
1. Configuring the LPS - see chapter 8 of the Technical Description.
2. Programming process control - see chapter 9 of the Technical Description.
3. Adapt the IP configuration of the LPS such that it can communicate with the process control. This can be done either via the
display of the LPS or in LPSsoft in the Configuration area. Here you can change network address and associated net mask
as well as the ports via which the LPS communicates with process control.
4. Save the changed settings in the LPS using the Configuration->Transmit to sensor command.
5. Connect LPS to process control via the Ethernet interface.
6. Establish connections for activation, triggering and cascading, if necessary.

Possible error message
Depending on the system configuration the adjacent
error message can appear at this point.
The cause of this error message is a bug in the MCR
installation routine, which does not set the environment variable Path correctly in some systems.
That, however, can easily be corrected without reinstallation of the MCR.
 Open the System properties window located in the
System control of Windows under System.
 Go to the Advanced tab and click on Environment
variables.
The Environment variables window opens.
 Scroll down in the System variables area until you
find the Path entry.
 Click on Path and then on Edit.
The Edit system variable window opens.
There in the Variable value field you will find the
;C:\Programs\MATLAB\MATLAB Compiler
Runtime\v79\runtime\win32 entry right at the end.
 If this entry is missing, copy the entry from this
document and insert it together with the preceding
semicolon.
 Then click on OK and close also all further windows
using OK.
 Shut Windows down, restart Windows and then start
LPSsoft by double-clicking on it.
Now the start screen of LPSsoft appears, as described in
