CN2510 Series Quick Installation Guide
Second Edition, August 2004
1. Overview
Welcome to Moxa CN2510 Async Server, a communication server with 8/16
asynchronous RS-232 ports and 10/100 Mbps Ethernet LAN port. CN2510
Async Server can be used to connect terminals, modems, printers, and other
asynchronous serial devices to LAN hosts. CN2510 complies with TCP/IP
and IEEE 802.3 specifications using standard Ethernet 10/100BaseT and
twisted pair 10/100BaseTX cable as the physical medium.

If you forget the password, use a pointed object,
such as a straightened paper clip or toothpick, to
press the reset button. The Ready LED will blink on
and off while the factory default settings are being
loaded. Once the Ready LED stops blinking (after
about 5 seconds), release the reset button. You will
hear a beep, which indicates that the default settings
have been restored, and CN2510 has rebooted.

The buttons are manipulated in a manner similar to the way a modern cellular
phone operates. As you move through the various functions and setting
options, note that the top line shows the current menu or submenu name, and
the bottom line shows the submenu name or menu item which is activated by
pressing the SEL button.

We recommend using the LCM display and four push buttons to configure
the IP address for the first time.
Basic Operation:
If the CN2510 is working properly, the LCM panel will display a green color.
The red Ready LED will also light up, indicating that the CN2510 is
receiving power. After the red Ready LED turns to green, you will see a
display similar to:

Installing CN2510
Open the package, and place CN2510 on a desktop, or attach it to a
standard rack cabinet.
is the CN2510’s name
is the CN2510’s serial number
is the CN2510’s IP address
There are four push buttons on CN2510’s nameplate. Going from left to right,
the buttons are:
Use separate paths to route wiring for power and devices. If power
wiring and device wiring paths must cross, make sure the wires are
perpendicular at the intersection point.
NOTE: Do not run signal or communication wiring and power
wiring in the same wire conduit. To avoid interference, wires with
different signal characteristics should be routed separately.
Where necessary, it is strongly advised that you label wiring to all
devices in the system.
Connecting the Power
AC: Connect CN2510 100-240 VAC power line with its AC connector. If
the power is properly connected, the “Ready” LED will show a solid
red color until the system is ready, at which time the “Ready” LED
will change to a green color.
DC: Connect CN2510-16/8-48V’s power cord to CN2510’s DC
connector, and then follow the steps given below:
V+ V-
1. Loosen the screws on the V+ and V- terminals of
CN2510-8/16-48V’s terminal block.
2. Connect the power cord’s 48 VDC wire to the
terminal block’s V+ terminal, and the power cord’s
DC Power Ground wire to the terminal block’s Vterminal, and then tighten the terminal block screws.
(Note: CN2510-8/16-48V can still operate even if the
DC 48V and DC Power Ground are reversed.)
If the power is properly connected, the “Ready” LED will show a solid red
color until the system is ready, at which time the “Ready” LED will
change to a green color.

Grounding CN2510-16/8-48V:
Grounding and wire routing helps limit the effects of noise
due to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Run the ground
connection from the ground screw to the grounding
surface prior to connecting devices. The Shielded Ground
V+ V(sometimes called Protected Ground) contact is the second
contact from the right of the 5-pin power terminal block
connector located on the rear panel of CN2510-8/16-48V.
Connect the SG wire to the Earth ground.

Connecting to the Network
Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to CN2510’s 10/100M Ethernet
port and the other end of the cable to the Ethernet network. There are 2
LED indicators located on the top left and right corners of the Ethernet
connector. If the cable is properly connected, CN2510 will indicate a valid
connection to the Ethernet in the following ways:
DB9 Male Connector
10/100BaseTX Cable Wiring
The top right corner LED indicator maintains a solid
green color when the cable is properly connected to a
100 Mbps Ethernet network.
The top left corner LED indicator maintains a solid
orange color when the cable is properly connected to
a 10 Mbps Ethernet network.
Connecting to a Serial Device
Connect the serial data cable between CN2510 and the serial device.
7. Environmental Specifications
Async RS-232 Cable Wiring:
Note: The following cables are optional accessories.
Connecting to a Console
A console is a combination of keyboard and monitor that are used to
configure settings and to monitor the status of your system. If you do not
have a network environment, use a terminal, a PC running UNIX, or a PC
with terminal emulation software (e.g., HyperTerminal in Windows;
PComm by Moxa). Use an RJ45-to-DB25 or RJ45-to-DB9 cable to
connect the terminal to the console socket. Refer to the CN2510 Async
Server User’s Manual for more details.

Entering the Console Utility
The Console Utility is the main application needed to set up the server/port
configuration, and to execute utilities such as ping, diagnosis, monitor, and
upgrade. There are two ways to enter the Console Utility. One is to use
terminal emulation through a console terminal, and the other is to telnet from
a network terminal.
