The V460 series of industrial, ready-to-run embedded computers support
VGA and audio, and come with dual or quad LAN ports, 4 serial ports, a
CompactFlash slot with cap, and four USB 2.0 ports. To fit the needs of
different applications and vertical markets, the V460 computers provide a
rich choice of I/O combinations: The V462 is suitable for basic
applications, the V464 emphasizes expansion by providing an additional
PCMCIA port and quad LANs, the V466 provides greater possibilities for
data acquisition and transmission by providing 8 switching ports, and the
V468 has 8 DIs and 8 DOs with 3 KV isolation to focus on device control
and signal communication between connected equipment, field hosts, and
the V468.

Power Connector
Connect the “live-wire” end of the 9-36 VDC power adaptor to the
embedded computer’s terminal block. When the power is properly
supplied, the “Power” LED will glow a solid green color.
Grounding the V460 series
Grounding and wire routing help limit the effects of noise due to
electromagnetic interference (EMI). Before connecting devices, run a
ground wire from the ground screw to the grounding surface.
ATTENTION
This product is intended to be mounted to a well-grounded mounting
surface, such as a metal panel.

SG
The Shielded Ground (sometimes called Protected
Ground) contact is the right most contact of the 3-pin
power terminal block connector when viewed from the
angle shown here. Connect the SG wire to an
appropriate grounded metal surface.
VGA Connector
The V460 series comes with a D-Sub 15-pin female connector to connect
a VGA CRT monitor.
PS/2 Connector
The V460 series comes with a PS/2 connector to connect a PS/2 keyboard
or PS/2 mouse.
Ethernet and Switch Ports
The 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and switch ports (V466 only) use RJ45
connectors.
Serial Ports
The serial ports use DB9 connectors. Ports 3 and 4 can be configured by
software for RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485, and ports 1 and 2 support
RS-232 only. The pin assignments for the ports are shown in the
following table:

PCMCIA (V462 only)
The PCMCIA slot supports the CardBus (Card-32) Card standard and
16-bit (PCMCIA 2.1/JEIDA 4.2) Card standard. It supports +3.3V, +5V,
and +12V at a working voltage of 120 mA.
8+8 Digital I/O (V468 only)
The V468 has an 8-ch digital input and 8-ch digital output, both of which
support 3 KV optical isolation protection.

SO-DIMM Socket for Memory Module
The V460-CE computers come with a 256 MB DDR SDRAM module
pre-installed, and the V460-XPE computers have a 512 MB DDR RAM
installed. You may also replace the module with your own (128 MB to 1
GB) DDR SDRAM memory module. To replace the module, first remove
the bottom cover of the V460 series computer to expose the SO-DIMM
socket.
CompactFlash Socket
The V460 computers come with a CompactFlash socket located inside the
computer. Installing a CompactFlash memory card will not affect the
operating system. Remove the protective cap on the front panel to install
the CompactFlash card.
USB Hosts
The V460 computers supports four USB 2.0 hosts. All hosts can be used
to connect any USB device, and support system boot up (activated by
changing BIOS settings).
Audio Interface
The V460 computers have a speaker interface that follows the AC97
standard to enable voice output.
To power on a V460 series computer, connect the “terminal block to
power jack converter” to the computer’s DC terminal block (located on
the left rear panel), and then connect the power adaptor. Note that the
Shielded Ground wire should be connected to the right-most pin of the
terminal block.
7. Powering on the V460 Series Computers
Power on the V460 computer after connecting a monitor, keyboard, and
mouse, and verifying that the power source is ready. Once the operating
system boots up, the first step is to configure the Ethernet interface. The
factory default settings for the V460’s LANs are shown below. (CE
version only, XPE version’s default value is DHCP)
Default IP Address
Netmask
192.168.3.127
255.255.255.0
LAN 1
192.168.4.127
255.255.255.0
LAN 2
192.168.5.127
255.255.255.0
LAN 3
192.168.6.127
255.255.255.0
LAN 4
8. Configuring the Ethernet Interface
Follow these steps to configure the Ethernet interface:
Step 1: Go to [Start] Æ [Settings] Æ [Network and Dial-Up
Connections]. You will see two network interfaces.
Step 2: Right-Click the LAN interface (e.g., PCI\E100CE1) to configure,
and then click property. A configuration window will pop up.
Step 3: After inputting the proper IP address and netmask, click OK.
Power On/Off Button
The power on/off button is located above the power input terminal block.
The button supports the ATX power on/off function. By default, the
button is set for “instant off.” You may also configure the button for
“delay 4 seconds” to guard against shutting down the power
unintentionally. In this case, you must press the power button
continuously for at least 4 seconds to shut off the power.
Reset Button
The reset button is designed to warm reboot the V460 series. You should
only press the Reset Button if the software is not working properly.
Real-time Clock
The embedded computer’s real-time clock is powered by a lithium battery.
We strongly recommend that you do NOT replace the lithium battery
yourself. If the battery needs to be changed, please contact the Moxa
RMA service team.
ATTENTION
There is a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced by an incorrect type.
