Marksman© Hub
Instructions
2464-305 Rev. A
Theory of Operation
The Marksman© Hub is a device that can be attached to a network and used by the Marksman© Controller to turn on and off alarm beacons or strobes. The Hub has the capability to
control two different beacons, each containing two different colors: red and green.
If a low ink condition exists on a controller, the red beacon will be turned on solid; if an error
occurs that prevents the system from printing (i.e. out of ink, low head temperature, no high
voltage), the red beacon will flash. The green beacon will be turned on when all errors are
gone. If multiple controllers are using the beacon, it is possible that both the green beacon
and the red beacon could be on.
The Marksman© Hub has its own IP address (10.1.2.50 default value) for communication with
the Marksman© Controller. The Marksman© Controller is configured via the Configuration /
System Internet web page, designating which port the Hub communicates to. Multiple Marksman© Controllers can be connected to a single Marksman© Hub to control the beacon. The
strobe will stay on or flashing, depending on the error, until all the Marksman© Controller
errors are resolved. The Hub also contains four RS232s that are not supported by the Marksman© Controller. Serial B is used to set the IP address of the Hub. There are three LEDs on
the front of the Hub: 1 green (POWER) and 2 red (MALFUNCTION 1and 2). The POWER
LED comes on when power is applied; MALFUNCTION 1 will stay on until a Marksman© Controller connects to it through the Ethernet port. MALFUNCTION 2 is not used.
Setting the IP Address
To set the IP address, complete the following steps:
• Connect Serial B on the Hub to the computer’s serial port with a null modem cable (not
supplied).
• Open Hyper Terminal
• Configure Hyper Terminal to:
Baud Rate=9600, Data Bits=8, Parity=none, Stop Bits=1, Flow Control = None.
•
•
Power up the Marksman© Hub
Follow the commands to change the IP address.
