ETC II Network Communicator
Chapter 1 General Information
Chapter 1 General Information
The ETC II Network Communicator is a multi-port Internet-to-serial that
connects multiple serial RS-485/422 or wireless ZigBee devices to the Internet
via a local Ethernet network or via public telephone lines. It can also be used
as an Internet-to-Internet router for connecting master stations to remote slave
devices that are directly connected to the Internet. The ETC II provides
transparent master-slave connections using TCP/IP versions of the popular
industrial fieldbus protocols such as Modbus RTU, DNP3, and SATEC ASCII.
The embedded Data server allows the ETC II to automatically acquire data
from slave devices and to store it in the memory exchanges or in the data log
files in non-volatile memory, so a user application can read blocks of acquired
data directly from the ETC II exchanges without waiting for a response from
slow serial and wireless devices. The application can also write data to slave
devices via the ETC II exchanges instead of waiting until a remote device is
accessible. The Data server may be programmed to monitor the slave device’s
status registers for specific events and to record them to a log file, and send
alerts to a remote server.

Chassis Ground Connection
Connect the chassis ground of the device to the switchgear earth ground
using a dedicated wire greater than 2 mm2/14 AWG.
Serial Port Connection
The COM3 RS-232 service port is normally used for servicing and setting up
the ETC II. It can also be used as a slave port for serial-to-serial
communications via the ETC II gateway.
The COM4 and optional COM5 gateway ports are used for connecting the
ETC II to the RS-422/RS-485 slave networks with up to 32 devices on each
network. For device routing rules, see Routing Messages over Slave
Networks in Chapter 3.
The COM4 port can also be used as a slave port for a connection of a master
application to the ETC II via an RS-422/RS-485 serial network.
For proper serial communications, ensure that all port parameters, such as
the communication protocol, baud rate, data format and parity, are correctly
set in both the ETC II and in the connected serial devices. See Serial Network
Connections in Chapter 3 and Configuring Serial Ports in Chapter 5 for the

for local servicing and programming. The switch must be in the RUN position
for normal device operation.
Put the PROG-RUN switch in the PROG position for setting up your device or
upgrading device firmware via a Terminal program (see Using HyperTerminal
in Chapter 4 for instructions).
LED Indicators
Figure 3-1 Indicator LEDs
The ETC II has two yellow device status LEDs and eight green network status
LEDs that show the present device status and activity on communication
ports.
The flashing yellow CPU LED indicates the device status as follows:

The CPU LED flashing for one second with a one-second pause
indicates that the device is in the operational state and is functioning
normally. Depending on the position of the PROG-RUN switch, the
COM3 service port is available for communications via a Terminal
program or for master communications.

The CPU LED flashing briefly 2 times with a one-second pause
indicates that the device is in service mode and is not operational.

The CPU LED flashing briefly 3 times with a one-second pause
indicates that a critical error has occurred and the device is not
operational. Contact your local distributor for servicing.
The yellow BATTERY LOW LED lights up when the backup battery is near the
end of its operational life and should be replaced.
The network status LEDs indicate activity on communication ports as follow:

COM2 Cellular port optional plug-in module (future): the RX and TX
LEDs flash when the device communicate with the Cellular Modem
port.

COM3, COM4 and COM5 serial ports: the RX and TX LEDs flash
when the device receives or transmits data via a port.
Modes of Operation
Operational Mode
In the operational mode, the device services the Internet to serial gateway
connections from client applications, and the COM3 port operates in slave
mode allowing serial-to-serial network connections.
12
ETC II Network Communicator
Chapter 3 Operating the ETC II
Using the ETC II
To put the ETC II into operational mode, set the PROG-RUN switch in the
RUN position.
Program Mode
In program mode, the COM3 port operates as a service port that allows the
user to review or change settings in the device via a Terminal program (see
Using HyperTerminal in Chapter 4 for more information). The device still
services the Internet to serial gateway connections, but serial-to-serial master
connections through the COM3 port are not available.
To put the device into program mode, set the PROG-RUN switch in the PROG
position.
Service Mode
Service mode is used for local device servicing and upgrading firmware
through a Terminal program. In service mode, the Internet-to-serial gateway
is not operational.
The device enters service mode either from program mode upon an explicit
user command sent via a Terminal program, or when the device is powered
with the PROG-RUN switch set in the PROG position. See Upgrading Device
Firmware in Chapter 6 for instructions.
Using the ETC II
Slave Network Connections
Serial Network Connections
The ETC II is connected to serial RS-422/485 slave networks via the COM4
and COM5 gateway ports.
The COM4 should be set to master mode to operate as a gateway port. The
COM5 port is factory-set to master mode. See Configuring Serial Ports in
Chapter 5 for information on programming serial ports.
The communication protocol to be used for serial networking via the ETC II is
defined by the Network TCP service port setting. See Configuring the Network
in Chapter 5 for information on programming the ETC II TCP service port.
Wireless RF Network Connections
The COM5 port can be configured to support a wireless RF ZigBee slave
network built on a Helicomm IP-Link platform.
The IP-Link network is an expandable, low-rate wireless ZigBee platform,
which allows various configurations, including mesh network topology to be
programmed by the user to best match the installation conditions and
applications networking needs. A network may contain up to 30 remote nodes
with full mesh support and can operate at one of the seven frequencies from
907MHz to 922MHz to avoid interference with other ZigBee networks.
Slave ZigBee devices are provided with the embedded IP-Link 1000 modules.
The ETC II is connected to a ZigBee network via an external IP-Link 2000
modem that operates as a master node.
A wireless network is used as a transparent media for delivering Modbus RTU
messages. To identify devices on the network, each slave node is assigned a
network ID that is identical to the device Modbus address. See Configuring
Wireless RF Connections in Chapter 5 for information on configuring the IPLink module parameters in the ETC II.
Internet Connections
Starting with V21.5.4, the ETC II provides connections to slave devices that
are linked to the Internet via the Modbus/TCP or DNP3/TCP protocol.
ETC II Network Communicator
13
Chapter 3 Operating the ETC II
Using the ETC II
The device routing table is used for assigning the IP addresses to slave
devices. See Routing Messages over Slave Networks below for more
information on using the device routing table in the ETC II.
To configure Internet connections for your devices:
1.
2.
In the device routing table, specify the IP addresses for Internet devices
connected to the ETC II. See Configuring Device Routing Table in
Chapter 5 for more information.
Enable the routing table in your ETC II via the ETC II Gateway Options
Setup (see Configuring Gateway Options in Chapter 5).
Master Network Connections
Internet Connections
The ETC II provides a TCP server for master client connections on one of the
standard TCP ports: 502 (Modbus/TCP), 20000 (DNP3/TCP) or 5002 (SATEC
ASCII/TCP). The TCP server supports eight simultaneous client connections.
NOTE:
Starting with V21.5.4, the ETC II provides the permanent Modbus/TCP server
on port 502. Selecting the TCP service port in the ETC II (see Configuring the
Network in Chapter 5) launches an additional server either on the DNP3/TCP
port 20000, or on the SATEC ASCII/TCP port 5002, allowing simultaneous
connections on both ports.
The TCP server can be accessed via a local Ethernet network or via a Dialup PPP Internet connection using an embedded 56K modem.
The ETC II Dial-up port is programmable either for dial-in connections from a
remote TCP client via Windows Dial-Up Networking services, or for dial-out
connections to a remote TCP server via a local Internet Service Provider
(ISP).
Ethernet Connections
To setup your Ethernet connections:
1.
2.
Define the network IP parameters via the ETC II Network Setup. If you
use the ETC II eXpertPower client connections via the Ethernet network,
define a non-zero default gateway address, so the client connections will
be directed to the Ethernet network (see Note in “Dial-Out Connections”
below).
Define the TCP service port number for your application protocol.
See Configuring the Network in Chapter 5 for information on programming the
TCP service port in your ETC II.
Dial-In Connections
To set up your dial-in connections, define the IP parameters for the modem
interface: the IP address, subnet mask and default network gateway, and the
number of rings before answering an incoming call.
See Configuring Dial-Up Connections in Chapter 5 for more information on
configuring your modem. See Dial-Up Networking in Chapter 4 for information
on using Windows Dial-Up Networking for dial-in connections.
Dial-Out Connections
Dial-out connections are normally used with eXpertPowerTM applications. The
ETC II eXpertPower client can initiate connections to the eXpertPowerTM
server on a time basis. For information on configuring eXpertPower
connections, see Configuring eXpertPower Client in Chapter 5.
To configure your ETC II modem for dial-out connections:
14
ETC II Network Communicator
Chapter 3 Operating the ETC II
1.
2.
Using the ETC II
Set the default Ethernet gateway address to 0.0.0.0 to direct client
connections to the modem network. See Configuring the Network in
Chapter 5 for information on programming the Ethernet port in your ETC
II.
Define your service provider’s phone number, the login name and the
password, and select the modem dialing options: the number of redial
attempts, the time between attempts, and the connection timeout. Other
IP connection parameters are automatically negotiated with the remote
server. See Configuring Dial-Up Connections in Chapter 5 for information
on configuring the Dial-Up modem.
NOTE:
If your ETC II has both the Ethernet and modem network interfaces, the
eXpertPower client uses one of these for connections to the eXpertPowerTM
server. The default Ethernet network gateway address defines which one of
the networks is used. If the default gateway address is not defined (i.e., it is
set to 0.0.0.0), the ETC II uses the dial-out modem connection via your local
Internet provider. If you defined the default network gateway address, any call
to the IP address, which is not included in the address space of the both
networks, is redirected to the default Ethernet gateway.
Serial Master Connections
The ETC II can also be used as a serial-to-serial or a serial-to-wireless
gateway. This provides connections to slave networks from serial applications
using the COM3 RS-232 or the COM4 RS-422/485 slave port.
To use the COM3 port as a slave port:
1.
2.
Configure the COM3 port communication parameters for your master
application. See Configuring Serial Ports in Chapter 5 for information on
programming serial ports.
Ensure that the PROG-RUN switch is in the RUN position.
To use the COM4 port as a slave port:
1.
2.
Configure the COM4 port communication parameters for your master
application. See Configuring Serial Ports in Chapter 5 for information on
programming serial ports.
Ensure that the COM4 port direction in the port setup is set to “Slave”.
Routing Messages over Slave Networks
A device address is used to route master requests to a correct network where
the target device is physically located. The device address range is
programmable in the range of 1 through 247. It may be restricted by specific
protocol limitations.
One of the device addresses is reserved for accessing the ETC II
configuration and data registers. The factory-set ETC II network address is
99. It can be moved to another address via the ETC II Gateway Options setup
if you wish to use the default ETC II address for addressing your slave
devices.
The ETC II has two options for routing messages over the slave networks,
depending on whether the device routing table is defined in your ETC II or not.
The first option uses implicit rules that identify the device location statically
upon the device address. The following table shows how the messages are
routed through the COM4 and COM5 serial ports depending on the port
usage. When using non-standard communication protocols, all messages are
routed to the COM4 port.

Chapter 3 Operating the ETC II
Using the ETC II
The second option uses the device routing table. It is available starting with
V21.5.4. The routing table explicitly identifies the target network for every
individual device connected to the ETC II. For serial and wireless devices, it
specifies a serial port to which the device network is connected. For Ethernet
devices, it allows you to specify the device’s IP address on the Ethernet
network.
To use the device routing table:
1.
2.
Specify a routing path for every device connected to the ETC II gateway.
Specify the IP address for every Internet device and the target serial port
for every serial and wireless device connected to the ETC II. See
Configuring Device Routing Table in Chapter 5 for information on
programming the device routing table.
Enable the routing table in your ETC II via the ETC II Gateway Options
Setup (see Configuring Gateway Options in Chapter 5).
Shared Device Access
Shared device access allows several clients to simultaneously access the
slave device’s registers either for reading or writing. It is enabled by the
default, so different clients can poll registers in the same device without
collisions that are normally resolved by the ETC II.
However, accessing a file in the device at the time when another client is
reading data from that or another file in the same device could destroy file
buffers such that both clients may receive corrupted data.
To avoid possible collisions, the ETC II offers you two options:
1.
2.
First, you can entirely disable shared device access so that the ETC II
rejects any additional requests addressed to a device that is being
accessed by another client. In this event, the ETC II returns an exception
response with the error code 10 “Gateway is busy” until the first client
closes the session or points to a different device. See Configuring
Gateway Options in Chapter 5 on how to enable or disable shared device
accesses in your ETC II.
The second option uses the device routing table for defining a devicesharing policy. Shared device access should be enabled in the ETC II
(see Configuring Gateway Options in Chapter 5), and device-sharing
rules should be selected for each individual device. In this event, only
protected registers, which are defined by a selected access rule, are
blocked for shared accesses while others are always available for all
clients. See Configuring Device Routing Table in Chapter 5 for
information on programming the device-routing table.
ETC II Network Applications
Transparent Gateway
The ETC II normally provides a means for transparent exchange of messages
between master Internet and serial client applications, and slave serial or
wireless devices.
The ETC II can manage up to eight concurrent sessions between master
stations and slave devices. Each connection is fully transparent for the
master. The ETC II forwards client requests to target devices, and then returns
responses to the master application, maintaining all timing regulations
required by the protocol. The serial networks are accessed in a queued
manner that prevents possible collisions.
Data Server
The ETC II has an embedded Data server that allows the user to save time
required for polling multiple devices, especially via slow serial interfaces. It
utilizes the ETC II non-volatile memory for automatic data acquisition.
The Data server is accessible via the Modbus/TCP protocol from any remote
application. The user application can read blocks of ready data directly from
16
ETC II Network Communicator
Chapter 3 Operating the ETC II
Using the ETC II
the ETC II memory exchanges without the need to wait until slow devices
respond to master requests.
The Data server can also perform a delayed write of data so the application
does not need to wait until the device is accessible, but rather can write data
to the ETC II memory exchanges, with the ETC II then taking responsibility for
delivering data to the target devices.
The Data server can also periodically poll device status registers, record
events to a log file and give alerts on specific events.
The following table gives a summary of the available data exchanges.

NOTE:
The real-time, status event and write data exchanges with the same
exchange number are internally linked in the ETC II to the same device
address. If you change the device address for one of the exchanges, the
same address will be taken for other configured exchanges that have the
same exchange number.
See Configuring Data Server in Chapter 5 for information on configuring data
exchanges. Refer to the ETC II Modbus Guide for information on accessing
and retrieving data from the Data server exchanges.
Real-Time Data Exchanges
Real-time data exchanges are used for periodic retrieval of data from the
connected devices. The ETC II provides up to 250 real-time data exchanges
of 1 to 114 registers long. They are directly accessible from remote master
applications.
When the Data server is enabled, it acquires data from the connected devices
either continuously, or on a periodic basis. If continuous polling is disabled,
the devices are requested periodically at predefined poll intervals. If
continuous polling is enabled, the ETC II retrieves data from the devices in
turn without pauses.
You can individually enable or disable polling data for a specific exchange. If
the device has an onboard real-time clock, you can enable periodic RTC
updates from the ETC II clock, which may be synchronized with the precise
satellite GPS clock using an optional IRIG-B input.
Acquired real-time data is normally stored in the ETC II exchanges. If the user
wishes, acquired data can be periodically moved to historical circular files
where data is kept for a long time until it is overwritten by newer data.
Data is recorded to historical files at regular intervals. To enable logging,
specify a non-zero logging interval in the Data Server Options setup (see
Configuring Data Server in Chapter 5). The logging interval is always
represented as a whole number of data polling intervals even if the polling
itself is not synchronized with polling intervals, such as in the event of
continuous polling. Since the ETC II attempts to synchronize polling devices
with the beginning of an hour, it is recommended to program a logging interval
in such a manner that it is a whole divisor of 60 minutes.
Historical records can be read in an arbitrary manner, or in a sequential order.
See the ETC II Modbus Guide for more information on retrieving log files from
your device.
Status Event Exchanges
The Data server logs binary events asserted by the connected devices and
gives notification to the eXpertPower server.
ETC II Network Communicator
17
Chapter 3 Operating the ETC II
Using the ETC II
A binary event mask specifies critical event bits in the device status register.
Whenever the Data server detects a change in the status bits selected by the
event mask, it records an event record to the circular Event log file. If the
eXpertPower service is enabled in the ETC II, this event initiates a connection
to the eXpertPower server.
Polling status events is performed via the status event exchanges. The Data
server provides up to 250 event exchanges of 1 register long, with a separate
event mask.
The Data server provides the auto re-set option that may be used to clear a
latched device status register after it has been read. In most devices, critical
events are latched into a status register, so that the new events are not
generated until the register is explicitly cleared by a master application.
Since status registers may be implemented in the device either as coils, or as
holding registers, you should specify a register type for each event exchange.
Write Data Exchanges
The Data server can provide remote writing data to serviced devices upon user
request. Up to 250 write exchanges are supported with a size of 1 to 12
registers.
The following table shows the write exchange layout.
Write Exchange Block
Description
Exchange
number
Write flag
Range
0-249
0 – Data has been
written
1 – Data is waiting
to be written
Data register 1
...
Data register 12
To send data to a device via a write exchange, write data to the write
exchange with the write flag being set to 1. The write flag is automatically
cleared after the data has been successfully transferred to the device. Always
check this flag before writing new data to the exchange to ensure it is empty,
otherwise previously written data may be lost.
Monitoring Digital Inputs
The Data server provides continuous monitoring events asserted by the
ET2002 digital inputs and gives notification to the eXpertPower server.
Whenever the Data server detects a change in the status of the ETC II digital
inputs, it records an event record to the Event log file. If the eXpertPower
service is enabled in the ETC II, this event initiates a connection to the
eXpertPower server.
eXpertPowerTM Client
The ETC II has an embedded eXpertPowerTM client that provides
communications with the eXpertPowerTM server – the SATEC proprietary
Internet services.
Connections to the eXpertPowerTM server are normally handled on a periodic
basis, but can also be initiated via the ETC II event exchanges and the ETC II
digital inputs DI1-DI4 to give an alert for specific events.
See Configuring eXpertPower Client in Chapter 5 for more information on

Chapter 3 Operating the ETC II
Using the ETC II
ETC II Clock
GPS Clock Synchronization
The ETC II has the IRIG-B input port for receiving the IRIG-B time code signal
from an external GPS satellite clock. The ETC II IRIG-B port uses
unmodulated pulse-width coded time code signal (unbalanced 5V level).
To use the IRIG-B input:
1.
2.
Connect the GPS master clock to the IRIG-B BNC connector on
the front of the ETC II
Define your time zone offset in the Local Settings setup. See
Configuring Local Time Settings in Chapter 5 for information on
configuring time options in your device.
When the IRIG-B signal is present on the device input, the ETC II automatically
synchronizes its clock with the GPS time each second, normally with accuracy
better than 1 millisecond if the time is synchronized with the GPS satellite time.
If the GPS clock loses the satellite signal, the clock continues to generate the
IRIG-B time code referenced to the last available satellite time, but the time
quality may deteriorate. Such signal losses can last from a few minutes to
several hours. During such outages, the time code generated by the GPS
receiver is typically accurate to within a few milliseconds over a 24-hour
period.
If the IRIG-B signal is not present on the device input, the ETC II automatically
uses its internal RTC clock.
Daylight Savings Time
The ETC II clock can automatically switch the clock from standard time to
daylight savings time (DTS) at preset time switch dates. The default
factory-set time change points are set for the U.S.A.
When the daylight savings time is enabled, the ETC II automatically adjusts
the device clock at 02.00 AM when daylight savings time begins/ends.
If the daylight savings time option is disabled, you must manually adjust the
device clock for daylight savings time. The daylight savings time option is
disabled in the ETC II by default.
See Configuring Local Time Settings in Chapter 5 for information on
configuring local time options in your device.

Chapter 6 Upgrading Device Firmware
Chapter 6 Upgrading Device Firmware
This chapter describes the procedure of upgrading firmware in the ETC II
through the COM3 RS-232 service port using Windows HyperTerminal.
When you put your device into program mode, its COM3 port operates at
19200 baud by default. Downloading firmware at a slow baud rate may be very
time-consuming. It is recommended to use the maximum available speed of
115200 baud for downloading firmware. Prepare a HyperTerminal session file
for communicating with the ETC II at 115200 baud before you start upgrading
firmware in your device. See Using HyperTerminal in Chapter 4 for information
on preparing a session file for HyperTerminal.
Opening a Terminal Session
1.
Connect your PC to the ETC II COM3 RS-232 port using the standard
RS-232 DTE-DTE (null-modem) cable that came with your ETC II.
2. Run a HyperTerminal session. See Using HyperTerminal in Chapter 4 for
information on launching and configuring HyperTerminal.
Put the PROG-RUN key on the front of the ETC II in the PROG position.
Downloading Firmware to the Device
