Introduction

The "DIST500 Configuration Tool" serves to configure the DIST500 sensors. It allows adjustment of the configuration of one sensor as well as the combination of several sensors into groups (master/slave).

Furthermore the sensor firmware can be updated with this tool.

Installation

The program does not require installation.

Just unpack the "DIST500-Configuration.zip" zip file in the desired folder.

Ensure that the necessary DLL files "QtCore4.dll", "QtGui4.dll", "mingwm10.dll", "libstdc++-

6.dll" und "libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll" are stored in the program folder.

Starting the service software

Start the program by executing the "DIST500-Configuration.exe" file.

The main window of the program opens.

Sensor selection

Open the sensor selection dialogue by clicking on the "Select Sensor(s) to be configured…" button. By default those sensors are shown which are found by the UDP driver. If the CAN interface in the system is used and the PC connected with the sensors via a CANusb interface by company "Softing", the sensor can alternatively be selected in the driver selection box (combo box top right). All those sensors are shown which are found via the

CAN interface.

5

Fig. 2: Sensor selection dialogue

One or several sensors can be selected by checking the check boxes beside the sensor symbol. Depending on the sensor selection, the program functions available are described in the following.

Selection of features

After sensor selection the dialogue for selection of the program function opens. The program provides the following features:

• Configure Sensor

• Build Sensor Group

• Ungroup Sensor

• Change Group Parameter

• Update Firmware

Depending on the sensor selection made before (only one sensor, several single sensors or a master and slave sensor), different functionalities are available.

Sensor configuration

For the configuration of a sensor, select "Configure Sensor". This selection is possible, if only one sensor was selected before in the sensor selection dialogue.

6.1

Fig. 3: Selection of the "Configure Sensor" program function

After confirmation of the selection, the configuration data of the sensor are read and shown on several parameter pages. Depending on the interface uses (UDP or CAN), reading out the configuration data can take quite some time.

After implementation of the changes desired, transmit these to the sensor by clicking on the "Apply" button. After successful writing of the configuration data, a new message indicates that the changed data will become effective only after a restart of the system.

It is possible to restart the system directly in the message window or by clicking on "Sensor

Reset".

Parameter page "General"

This page gives general information on the sensor, such as its serial number and product name.

This page is for information only. The information is set and cannot be edited.

Each sensor has its own assigned MAC address which cannot be changed.

In addition, each sensor has its default IP address which is in the "10" network (10.x.x.x). If necessary, it can be adjusted. For this purpose activate the "IP-Address" check box.

Important note: This setting must only be made by persons familiar with the specific features of such a network.

In case of incorrect setting it is possible that the sensor is no longer addressable via the network afterwards.

Port" – the port used for communication. As standard, the address fixed for this purpose is

0x8888 hex

6.3.1

The data under "More Sensor Operation" in this place are for information only and show the server's own UIP address as well as the master UIP address and the number of sensors of the group to which the sensor may be assigned. If the sensor to be configured is a single sensor, the values are "1" in all cases.

In case of sensor grouping (see chapter 7) these values are automatically adjusted.

Sensor Group – Mac-Addresses" – In this area the MAC address of the sensors are listed in the sequence of their UIP addresses which are combined into one group. The sensor's own

MAC address is set off by a dark background. If the sensor is a single sensor, the table gives only its MAC address.

Master sensor of a group

For a master sensor, the "IP address" gives the IP configuration it uses for example for communication with the PC. The table of the MAC address shows two entries, one for the master, and one for the slave. The first address (master) is set off by a darker background colour.

6.3.2

Fig. 7: IP setting and MAC allocation for a master

Slave sensor of a group

For a slave sensor the entries for the IP configuration are "0". It communicates only with the master sensor, using the MAC address, and does, therefore, not need to have its own IP address. It is listed in second place in the MAC address table.

Default button

The "Default button" is enabled only if a single sensor was selected. All parameters of the

"Counting" page can be reset to their default values by clicking on this button.

Sensor groups

In order to operate several sensors on one door, they must be configured as so-called groups of master and slave sensors.

Building of a sensor group

Only single sensors may be selected for building a sensor group.
