ECL 296 / 310 Comfort to WLAN
2.0 Introduction
2.1 Use the ECL Comfort 296 / 310 in SCADA systems via WLAN
The ECL Comfort 296 / 310 controller has a built-in ethernet interface
which enables it to connect to the local network (LAN) via a standard
ethernet cable.
In some installations it may be prefered to use wireless network
(WLAN) instead. In such cases the ECL Comfort 296 / 310 can easily
connect to a wireless network by using a wireless bridge.
By connecting the ECL Comfort 296 / 310 to the local network and/
or the internet the ECL Comfort 296 / 310 can be used in SCADA
systems like the Danfoss ECL Portal.
2.2 What is a wireless brigde?
The function of the wireless bridge is to be a bridge between a
wireless network (WLAN) and an ethernet network (LAN).
By using a wireless bridge a device like the ECL Comfort 296 / 310
can connect to the wireless network and/or the internet using its
standard ethernet interface.
3.0 System overview
3.1 Components
The components of interest are shown in the picture below.
A new or existing wireless internet connection (WLAN) is made
available by the wireless internet router in the building.

3.2 Wireless internet router
This is a standard wireless internet router which may already be available in the building providing a wireless internet connection.
To connect to the wireless internet the name of the wireless network
(SSID) and the password must be known.
3.3 Wireless bridge
The wireless bridge is the extra electronic device needed to make
the ECL Comfort 296 / 310 able to connect to the wireless internet
connection.
Several wireless bridges are available on the market, but the one
from Netgear (type WN3000RP) shown in the picture is very simple
to install and configure.
The wireless bridge is inserted into the mains plug and a standard
network cable is connected from the side of the wireless bridge to
the ECL Comfort 296 / 310 ethernet connection.
Netgear (type WN3000RP).
3.4 Configure the wireless bridge
Prior to connecting the wireless bridge to the ECL Comfort 296 /
310 it has to be configured by following the Netgear wizard.
The Netgear wizard is accessed by connecting a computer to the
ethernet connector of the wireless bridge, opening an internet
browser and entering www.mywifiext.net in the address field.
Select the wireless network to be used by the ECL Comfort 296 / 310 in the
Netgear Wizard.

3.5 Select wireless network to be used for wireless bridge
The Netgear wizard asks for wireless network to be used by the wireless bridge. Select the wireless network.
The Netgear wizard now asks for the password to the selected wireless network. Enter the password.
The wireless bridge is then completing the configuration and the
ethernet connection on the side of the wireless bridge can now be
connected to the ECL Comfort 296 / 310.
Enter passphrase for the selected wireless network.
3.6 Configure ECL Comfort 296 / 310 controller to local network
The ECL Comfort 296 / 310 controller must be configured to connect to the local network (LAN).
If the ECL Portal is used as SCADA system then the ECL Comfort
296 / 310 must be configured for DHCP instead of STATIC in the
System>Ethernet menu and the ECL Portal feature must be enabled in the System>Portal Config menu.
If used with ECL Portal: Configure for DHCP.
Enable the ECL Portal in the Portal Config menu.
