1 About this document
This is the user documentation for DEWESoft® RoaDyn 2000 LAN Plugin Version 4.5.
The DEWESoft® RoaDyn 2000 LAN Plugin enables DEWESoft® to acquire data from the Kistler RoaDyn2000
measurement system via LAN. There are three operation modes:
No AD card: The RoaDyn2000 is running as stand-alone
Master-Mode: The RoaDyn2000 acts as clock provider for the AD card of the measurement system
Demo-Mode: When no RoaDyn system is connected, DEWESoft® will create a virtual one

1.6 Plug-in Installation
Simply extract the file RoaDyn2000_LAN.zip 1 archive into the Addons folder of your DEWESoft® installation.
(e.g. D:\DEWESoft7\Bin\X2\Addons\). Now your Addons folder should look like this:
Illustration 4: Addons
Folder with RoaDyn files
File description:
RoaDyn2000_LAN.dll:
the plugin itself
RoaDyn2000_LAN.ini:
OPTIONAL stores the RoaDyn2000 configuration
RoaDynNames_English.ini:
stores the English default channel names)
RoaDynNames_Deutsch.ini:
OPTIONAL stores the German default channel names
RoaDynWheelTypes.ini:
stores the RoaDyn wheel types
Then you can start DEWESoft® and register the plugin (aka. Extension). Click Settings - Settings…, select Extensions and
click the plus sign. Then find the Kistler RoaDyn plugin in the list and activate it (i.e. click the check-box  in
Illustration 5) - when the plugin does not show up in the list, you may need to register it first (see 1.6.1 Registering the
Plug-In on page 4)
Illustration 5:
Enable Plug-In
1.6.1 Registering the Plug-In
Before you can use Plugins in DEWESoft®, the plugins must be registered once.
When DEWESoft® is started it will try to register all plugins ( dll files) that it finds in the AddOns folder. But in order to
do that, DEWESoft® requires administrator permissions (because it must write to the Windows® registry). When
DEWESoft® is not with administrator permissions, the registration cannot be done automatically.
1 The name may be slightly different (i.e. it may include the version number: RoaDyn2000_LAN_v4.5.zip)

2 Sensor connection
The sensors are connected to the measurement PC (e.g. S-BOX) via the LAN port (TCP/IP for data transfer). The clock
and trigger lines of the sensor are connected to the corresponding clock and trigger pins of the sync connector on the
DEWE-43 or SIRIUS measurement slice.
If more than one RoaDyn2000 system is connected it is recommended to use an Ethernet-Switch. Clock and trigger are
daisy-chained between the RoaDyn systems.

Sensor connection
Dewesoft offers a suitable sync cable:
Article Number: L00B4m-2xBNC-2m-ROADYNE-SYNC
Cable length 2.0 meter
Fits to SIRIUS, DEWE-43, MINITAUR
2.1.1 Sync Connector
The RoaDyn2000 synchronisation wires (clock and trigger) must be connected to Sync connector of the DEWESoft®
measurement device (i.e. SIRIUS, DEWE-43):
The clock output of the RoaDyn2000 is connected to CLK (Pin 1) on the DEWESoft® Sync connector.
The trigger output of the RoaDyn2000 is connected to Trigger (Pin 2) on the DEWESoft® Sync connector .
Ground is connected to GND (Pin 4) of the DEWESoft® Sync connector

3 Ethernet Configuration
The sensors are connected to the measurement unit via Ethernet cable for the data exchange. To establish a
communication between the sensors and the measurement system, the Ethernet interface on the PC and the Ethernet
interface/s on the sensor/s must be configured to use the same IP address range (i.e. the Subnet mask must match).
EXAMPLE 1
Configuration of the measurement units Ethernet interface:
Define the IP address (here 192.168.160.1)
Define the Subnet mask (here 255.255.255.0)
Click OK to confirm the settings
Configuration of the sensors Ethernet interface:
To configure the Ethernet interface of the sensors use the Kistler RabbitConfig tool provided with the sensors. With this
tool you can also check if the communication to the sensors is working. When clicking the Hello? button you should get
a response from the network interface (MAC and IP address).
Illustration 10:
Ethernet Interface Configuration RoaDyn
If you do not know the IP address of the RoaDyn2000 you can find it out by using the external control display: In the
setup screen, click on Diagnostics then on Interface where you will find the currently set IP address and subnet mask.

4 Hardware Setup
After you have installed and enabled the plugin (see 1.6 Plug-in Installation), start DEWESoft® and go to the
Hardware Setup:
Illustration 11:
Hardware setup
The plugin only supports Master mode: i.e. do NOT select Slave Mode.
4.1 Standalone Mode
When the RoaDyn2000 is connected to a DEWESoft® system without any AD card, the RoaDyn2000 will be
configured as stand-alone system. Since no hardware synchronization is needed in this mode, you cannot (do not need
to) connect the clock and trigger to the measurement system.

4.2 Master Mode
In Master mode, the RoaDyn2000 system acts as the clock master, providing clock and trigger for the DEWESoft®
measurement slices.
In Master Mode it is important to set the DEWESoft® synchronization settings to External – Clock/Trigger:
Illustration 12:
DEWESoft® Synchronization settings
4.3 Slave Mode
IMPORTANT
Slave Mode is NOT supported.
4.4 Demo mode
When no RoaDyn2000 system is found, DEWESoft® will create a virtual system denoted as “Demo device”. This is
only to show the basic plugin functionality. No data is being simulated however.

5 Channel Setup
In the channel setup of the Kistler RoaDyn plugin, you can activate/deactivate channels of the connected sensors.
Illustration 13: Channel Setup Overview
Dynamic acquisition rate: This is the sample rate and can be chosen between 80 Hz and 1250 Hz. Please note
that the set sample rate will be valid after switching to Measurement mode (e.g. Overview).
Rescan external clock: When the system is set to Slave mode, this button will measure the currently set sample
rate. Note: Slave Mode is NOT supported!
Delay: Due to the internal hardware of the RoaDyn2000 system, there is a delay between analogue data from
the AD card and data from the RoaDyn2000 system. This delay is constant over time but depends on the set
sample rate and the synchronization mode (Master or Slave mode). DEWESoft® will automatically set the
correct delay, based on the selected sample rate and the synchronization mode. For more information, please
refer to 6 Additional Settings on page 11.
IP:192.168.xxx.xxx: If more than one RoaDyn2000 system is connected you can switch between the channel
lists of each system.
Channel list: The channel list of each system is divided into sub-groups (Wheel channels, Hub channels and
Analog input) for easier navigation. A click on the Setup button next to each channel lets you alter each
channels name, colour, unit and scaling. To change these permanently you can edit the default settings (see
6 Additional Settings on page 11 for more information).
System Setup: The tab System setup let’s you choose the connected measurement wheel type and optionally
assign the default channel names. It is also possible to change the default channel names and their units by
editing the corresponding *.ini file. Please refer to 6 Additional Settings on page 11 for more information.
