Note
If .NET Framework Ver. 4.5 is not installed in the PC, you cannot start the EV-700
Setting software.
8
1.2.2. Connecting between the PC and the EV-700
Connect the EV-700’s Network connection terminal to the PC via a switching hub. Use the straight-through
cable for connection.
If the EV-700 has been connected to the network, connect the PC to the switching hub on the same local area
network. For details, consult your network administrator of the facilities where the EV-700 is installed.
Notes
• Use the EV-700 Setting software having the same version number as the unit’s firmware. You cannot establish
a connection between a PC and the EV-700 when their versions are different.
To confirm the EV-700’s firmware version, see the instruction manual supplied with the EV-700.
To confirm the EV-700 Setting software version, select "Help
Version information" from the menu. (See
p. 21 or p. 65.)
If both versions are different, update the firmware using the EV-700 Setting Software. The EV-700’s firmware
version becomes equal to that of the EV-700 Setting Software, enabling communications between them. (See
p. 73, "Updating the EV-700’s firmware.")
Download the latest version of EV-700 Setting Software from the TOA Products Data download site http://
www.toa.products.com/international/.
• Two or more PCs with the EV-700 Setting software installed cannot simultaneously establish connection to a
single EV-700.
Also, only a single EV-700 can be connected from a PC with the EV-700 Setting software installed.

Tip
You can also connect the EV-700 directly to a PC. Either a straight-through cable or a crossover cable can be
used for connection.
But direct connection between the EV-700 and a PC may not be possible depending on your PC settings.
In such cases, connect them via a switching hub as shown above.

1.2.3. Network
• Perform the network setting for the PC in advance following the instructions of the network administrator of
the facilities where the EV-700 is installed.
If incorrect setting has been performed, this may adversely affect other devices connected to the same
network.
• The EV-700 that communicates with this software can be detected using the Device detection function.
The Device detection function detects the EV-700 connected on the local area network.
A "Broadcast" communication method is used for detection.
Therefore, this detection function is available only within the effective range of broadcast. Broadcast will not
reach beyond the router even within the local area network.

Effective range of broadcast (Device detection possible from a PC.)
In the network configuration shown above, the EV-700 (3) cannot be detected if the device detection is
executed from the PC.
For the effective range of broadcast, consult your network administrator of the facilities where the EV-700 is
installed.
The PC can be connected with the EV-700 (3) by directly entering the IP address. (See p. 71, "Adding an
undetectable EV-700.")
1.2.4. Audio file format
The table below shows the requirements of usable audio files.
