Preparing the NI-4100 for Serial Communication
Use a 12 VDC-compliant power supply to provide power to the Controller via the rear
2-pin 3.5 mm mini-Phoenix connector. Use the power requirements information listed
in the Specifications table to determine the power draw.
The incoming PWR and GND cable from the PSN power supply must be connected
to their corresponding locations within the PWR connector.
• This unit should only have one source of incoming power.
• Using more than one source of power to the Controller can result in damage to
the internal components and a possible burn out.
• Apply power to the unit only after installation is complete.
To establish serial communication with the Controller via the PROGRAM (DB9) port:
1.
Use a Serial DB9 cable (i.e. CC-COM Programming Port Cable - not included)
to connect the Controller’s Program port to a DB9 port on a PC.
2.
Launch NetLinx Studio 2.x (default location is Start > Programs >
AMX Control Disc > NetLinx Studio 2 > NetLinx Studio 2).
3.
Select Settings > Master Communication Settings, from the menu bar, to
open the Master Communication Settings dialog box.
4.
Click the Communications Settings button to open the Communications
Settings dialog.
5.
Click the NetLinx Master radio button (from the Platform Selection section) to
indicate you are working with a NetLinx Master.
6.
Click the Serial radio button (from the Transport Connection Option section) to
indicate you are connecting to the Master via a COM port.
7.
Click the Edit Settings button (on the Communications Settings dialog) to
open the Serial Settings dialog and set the COM port parameters (used to
communicate to the NetLinx Master).
8.
Click OK to close all dialogs and return to the main application.
9.
Right-click the Online Tree tab entry and select Refresh System: the
Controller should appear in the Device Tree. If not, verify that the Serial cable
is connected properly, and that the Baud Rate settings on the Controller (set
via the Program Port DIP Switch) match the settings in NetLinx Studio.
Once Serial communication has been established, use NetLinx Studio to configure
the Controller for Ethernet Communication, as described below.
RS-232/422/485 wiring connector information
Configuring the NI-4100 for Ethernet Communication
FIG. 3 shows the pinout and wiring specification information for the rear RS-232/RS422/RS-485 (DB9) Device Ports. These ports support most standard serial mouse
control devices and RS-232 communication protocols for PC data transmission.
The NI-4100 uses Ports 1 - 7.
Before continuing, complete the COM port steps above.
1.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the Controller to the LAN to which the PC
running NetLinx Studio is connected.
Note: The NI-x100 Controllers feature an Auto MDI/MDI-X Ethernet port. This
provides the option of using either a standard (straight through), or a crossover
Ethernet cable to communicate with a PC - both cable types will work.
2.
Select Diagnostics > Network Address from the menu bar and enter the
System, Device (0 for a Master), and Host Name information.
3.
To configure the Address:
• Use a DHCP Address by selecting the Use DHCP radio button, then click the
GET IP button (to obtain a DHCP Address from the DHCP Server), click the
SET IP Information button (to retain the new address), and then finish the process by clicking the Reboot Master > OK buttons.
• Use a Static IP Address by selecting the Specify IP Address radio button,
enter the IP parameters into the available fields, then click the SET IP
Information button (to retain the pre-reserved IP Address to the Master), and
then click the Reboot Master > OK buttons to finish the process.
4.
Repeat steps 1 - 5 from the previous section, but rather than selecting the
Serial option, choose TCP/IP and edit the settings to match the IP Address you
are using (Static or IP).
5.
Click on the Authentication Required radio box (if the Master is secured) and
press the User Name and Password button to enter a valid username and
password being used by the secured Master.
6.
Click the OK to close all dialogs and return to the main application.
For example:
A DIP switch setting of 00010101:
(0 + 0 + 0 + 96 + 0 + 384 + 1536) + SLOT #(ex:1) = 2017.
A card in slot number 1 = device address 2017.

Accessing the WebConsole
The Program Port DIP switch is located on the rear of the device. Use this DIP switch
to set the baud rate for the Program Port, according to the settings shown in the
following table. Make sure the baud rate you set matches the baud rate on your PC's
NetLinx COM Settings before programming the unit.
From any PC that has access to the LAN that the target Master resides on:
1.
Open a web browser and type the IP Address of the target Master in the
Address Bar.
2.
Press Enter to access WebConsole for that Master. The initial view is the
