8. Snap the Ethernet Module (A) onto the plastic spacers (F) and place a 5.5mm nut
(E) on the 5/16” metal spacer (D) to secure the Ethernet module.
9. Make sure there is a shorting jumper on JP3 on the Ethernet module. Also there
should be a shorting jumper on J4 as shown in Figure 7 and Figure 8. The J4
jumper is used for controlling the keypad on the remote web page.
10. Install the power/RS232 cable (H) across the J8 (power) and J6 (RS232) of the
Ethernet module. This cable will only fit on the J8 and J6 connectors one way.
Refer to Figure 7 and Figure 8.
11. Connect the Ethernet module +5VDC and Ground wires to the indicator’s +5V
and Gnd of the comm port header.
12. Connect the RX and TX wires to the desired comm port.
13. If the module is being installed in the Model 460, replace the existing keypad
cable with the keypad cable included with this kit (22-30-25530)
The Ethernet module kit does not come with an RJ45 cable. Ethernet cables should be
point-to-point and should not be spliced. If you want to connect the Ethernet module
directly to your computer you must use a cross-wired (null) Ethernet cable or connect
through a hub, router, or switch first. Install your Ethernet cable through one of the
indicator’s strain relief’s and crimp on an RJ45 connector (refer your computer support
personnel or computer supply store). Plug the RJ45 connector into J7 of the Ethernet
module.
Record the Mac Address for later use in configuring the IP address. This is the number
located on the white label on U2 and is of the form ##-##-## ##-##-##
SETUP
REFLASH YOUR INDICATOR
The web server portion of the Ethernet option works best with the latest firmware (Code
Level 332 November 25, 2002 or later). When loading new firmware don’t forget to save
your indicator setup prior to updating.
SERIAL PORT
Be sure to change the Ethernet comm port to 19,200 baud/ 8 data bits/ 1 stop bits and
Xon/Xoff flow control. If your indicator has an earlier version of firmware (before
November 25, 2002) you must also set parameter P290 (Echo) to echo out the comm port
that the Ethernet Option is connected to.
SETUP OF THE IP ADDRESS
You will need to download the latest version of Ipsetup.exe from the GSE Web Site to
complete this step: http://www.gse-inc.com (this file is located under distributor sign
in/downloads/Ethernet)
If you are part of an existing network consult with your system administrator. If your
network does not use DHCP then obtain the IP address, IP mask, Gateway Address, and
DNS from your system administrator. If you are part of an isolated network then we
recommend choosing an address that is not accessible from the Internet:
7 of 13
OR
OR
10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255
If you do not know what to use for the IP mask try 255.255.255.0
A. If you are part of an existing network and have DHCP: (Ask your
system Administrator)
From a computer connected to the same network as the GSE Indicator (with a properly
installed Ethernet Option), run the program IPSetup.exe. Note that IPSetup uses a UDP
broadcast protocol and will not operate through a router.
1. Select the device from the device list (It should have Mac ID that you recorded as part
of the installation process). If no devices are found press the find button.
2. Record the IP address and IP mask for future reference.
3. If your response is MAC:( #-#-#-#-#-#) ID:0.0.0.0 DHCP: 0.0.0.1 then Ipsetup was
not able to communication with your DHCP server. Proceed to step B below to set
the IP address.
B. If you do not have DHCP: (Ask your system administrator)
From a computer connected to the same network as the GSE Indicator (with a properly
installed Ethernet Option), run the program IPSetup.exe. Note IPSetup uses a UDP
broadcast protocol and will not operate through a router. When IPSetup is executed, it
will identify all GSE Indicator’s (with Ethernet Option) connected to a LAN. If a device
has not been initialized and its IP Address is 0.0.0.0, it can be identified by its 48-bit
Ethernet address (Mac ID).
To configure a particular device:
1. Select the device from the device list (It should have Mac ID that you recorded as part
of the installation process).
2. Enter the IP Address, IP Mask, and IP Gateway in their respective text boxes.
3. If you have a Domain Name Server then enter it.
4. Select the "Set" button to program the new values in the selected device.
ACCESSING THE GSE WEB SERVER
NOTES:
If your are working on a corporate LAN that uses a proxy server for Internet web
browsing, you will need to exclude the IP address of the Ethernet Option in your web
browser’s proxy servers settings/preferences. Otherwise, an attempt to connect to a web
page on the LAN will fail because the proxy server will attempt to route the request
outside the LAN. For most web browsers, this can be accomplished in the advanced
settings for the proxy server configuration. Set the network mask for both to
255.255.255.0.
Presently the Ethernet Option can conflict with any power up macro.

Open your Internet browser and enter the IP address of the module in the internet address
window. This will find the Ethernet module’s home page.
There are five pages: Home, Configure, Remote, FTP, and Email. The FTP and Email
pages are for future applications. The Email page has a connection to GSE Scale Systems
Web site.
The Home page can be used as a diagnostic tool. It shows the current firmware revision
of the Ethernet Module, indicator serial number, indicator firmware revision and the scale
application date.
The Configure page is for configuring network and serial port settings.
9 of 13
The Configure page also shows the version number and date of the Ethernet Module
firmware. The Network Settings portion sets port number for Telnet use. Normally Telnet
connections are made on port 23. The Client Timeout is the time allowed before dropping
an established Telnet connection. The Client Override Timeout is how long a new
connection will be forced to wait for access. After the Client Override Timeout the
existing connection will be dropped and the new connection established. The Serial Port
settings should be set to match the port to which the Ethernet Module is connected.
Normally this is 19200 baud and the flow control set for Software Xon/Xoff.
The Remote page is where you can view and interact with the indicator. If you want your
browser to be able to display all the GSE special characters download GSE2000.ttf and
GSE7000.ttf from the GSE website http://www.gse-inc.com (these files are located under
distributor sign in/downloads/Ethernet) and then copy the files to your Windows\Fonts
subdirectory.
The Remote Page display window works best when the GSE Scale fonts are installed on
your computer. To do this go to the GSE Scale Systems web site (http://www.gseinc.com) and download the files GSE2000.ttf and GSE7000.ttf. Copy these fonts to your
windows/font directory.
The Remote page keypad usage may be enabled or disabled by installing a jumper on J4
of the Ethernet module. By installing a jumper on the two pins directly under the J4 label,
the server keypad will be enabled (note J4 is a 5 pin connector).
Note: Be sure to place the J4 shorting jumper on the appropriate two pins (closest to the
Ethernet connector). Refer to Figure 7 and Figure 8.

Arrow Keys work for any product but it is important to realize that pressing an arrow
key where not appropriate will have side effects dependent on the product.
Specifically the side effects are:
9 The Up Arrow key will act the same as the F1 key on all products (460, 560,
660 series).
9 The Down Arrow key will act the same as the Target Key on the 460 series
products, the F2 Key on the 560 series products and the F4 Key on the 660
series products.
9 The Left Arrow key will act the same as the Units key on the 460 & 560 series
products and the F3 key on the 660 series products.
9 The Right Arrow key will act the same as the Tare key on the 460 & 560
series products and the F5 key on the 660 series products.
DISPLAYING A CUSTOM TRANSMIT IN THE SCALE TRANSMIT ONE WINDOW
Create a custom transmit that starts with STX, ‘1’(ascii character 1), and end it with ETX
character {[STX(02h)][1(31h)]YourText[ETX(03h)]}. This transmit window is limited to
256 characters. If more than 256 characters are received, the extra characters will spill
into the other windows below. Note that custom transmit data will not appear until you
hit your browser’s refresh button. Also note that each new transmit replaces the last.
DISPLAYING A CUSTOM TRANSMIT IN THE SCALE TRANSMIT TWO WINDOW
Create a custom transmit that starts with STX, ‘2’ (ascii character 2) and end it with ETX
character {[STX(02h)][2(32h)]YourText[ETX(03h)]}. This transmit window is limited to
256 characters. If more than 256 characters are received, the extra characters will spill
into the window below. Note that custom transmit data will not appear until you hit your
browser’s refresh button. Also note that each new transmit replaces the last.
DISPLAYING A CUSTOM TRANSMIT IN THE SCALE TRANSMIT THREE WINDOW
Any data (such as output from 64100, database downloads) from the scale appears in this
window. This includes any transmits that do not meet the requirements for Scale
Transmit Windows One & Two. It is limited to 80,000 characters. Note that download
data will not appear until you hit your browser’s refresh button. This window is
cumulative. This means that if you have a custom transmit that is not of the form required
for Scale Transmit Windows One & Two each transmit will be added to the previous.
Pressing the Clear Output Window button can clear this window.
TURNING OFF THE CLICKING SOUND
The clicking sound caused by refreshing the scale’s display on the remote page can be
turned off by:
11 of 13
9 Go to the control panel: (Start, Settings, Control Panel) and find the sounds (or
multimedia) applet. Then locate the Internet section and remove the clicking
sound.
OTHER USERS
Once anyone on the network uses the keypad on the remote page you will see a number
appear under the display box indicating that someone has accessed the scale within the
last 2 minutes. A maximum of 5 users can be indicated. However remember that if more
than one person tries to send information to the scale at the same time the information can
be merged together with unpredictable results. An operator at the scale indicator itself
will not show up as a user but you can observe the results of his actions.
TELNET
If a telnet connection is in progress you will not be able to see the display of your
indicator or use the Remote page.
USING TELNET
Telnet connections normally use port 23. Many networks will not allow the use of other
port numbers for security reasons. The Configure page of the web server shows the time
allowed before dropping an established connection (Client Timeout). It also shows how
long a new connection will be forced to wait for access (Client Override Timeout). After
this Client Override Timeout the existing connection will be dropped and the new
connection established. Contact GSE Scale Application support for the availability of a
Telnet version of the Communications Plus software.
Note: If you are writing your own Telnet software, the scale is set to echo any change in
display via telnet connection once it is established.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If Ipconfig.exe cannot locate the MAC address then check your Ethernet cables and
connections. Verify that the green lights on the Ethernet Module are on:
• LED1 is the Ethernet Speed (on for 100M, off for 10M)
• LED2 indicates a link has been established
• LED3 indicates that the Ethernet Module has power.
If you cannot see the web page from your browser by typing the IP address (#.#.#.#) at
the address prompt then repeat the Setup IP address in Setup Section.
If on the Home page check to see if the Product Serial Number box reads “No
Connection Between Scale and Ethernet Module”:
• Check the wiring between the Ethernet Module PCB and the scale
• Make sure you have the latest firmware in your scale (Code Level 332 November 25,
2002 or later)
• The baud rate of the scale port and that on the Configure page match.
• That both the scale comm port and the Configure page are set for Xon/Xoff.
• If all the above configurations are correct, use a serial port on your computer and a
terminal emulator program to monitor the serial port of the indicator to verify that the
serial port of the scale is echoing out any changes in weight.
