• Install Ferrite Bead(s) on signal wires close to the instrument if EMC problems persist.
Failure to follow all instructions and warnings may result in injury!
1.2 Before You Begin
Inspecting Your Shipment: Remove the packing slip and verify that you have received
everything listed. Inspect the container and equipment for signs of damage as soon as
you receive the shipment. Note any evidence of rough handling in transit. Immediately
report any damage to the shipping agent. The carrier will not honor damage claims
unless all shipping material is saved for inspection. After examining and removing the
contents, save the packing material and carton in the event reshipment is necessary.
Customer Service: If you need assistance, please contact the Customer Service
Department nearest you.
Manuals, Software: The latest Operation Manual as well as free iServer configuration
software (iConnect), datalogging software (iLog) and Mail Notifier are available at the
website listed on the cover page of this manual or on the CD-ROM enclosed with
your shipment.
1.3 Description
View Barometric Pressure, Temperature + Humidity with a Web Browser.
The iServer transmitter let’s you monitor and record Barometric Pressure, Temperature,
Relative Humidity and Dew Point over an Ethernet network or the Internet with no special
software except a Web Browser.
The iBTHX is for barometric pressure, temperature, relative humidity and dew
point. The iBTX is for barometric pressure and temperature. The difference
between the iBTHX and the iBTX is only the probe/sensor.
The iServer serves Active Web Pages to display real time readings, display charts of
barometric pressure, temperature and humidity, or log data in standard data formats for
use in a spreadsheet or data acquisition program such as Excel or Visual Basic.
The virtual chart viewed on the web page is a JAVA™ Applet that records a chart over
the LAN or Internet in real time. With the iServer, there is no need to invest time and
money learning a proprietary software program to log or chart the data.
Adjustable Charts: Chart scales are fully adjustable on the fly. For example, the chart
can display one minute, one hour, one day, one week, one month or one year.
Temperature and humidity can be charted across the full span (-40 to 85°C, and 0 to
100% RH) or within any narrow range (such as 20 to 30°C). Barometric Pressure can be
displayed in mbar (hectopascals hPa), millimeters of Mercury (mmHg), or inches of
Mercury (inHg).
Display and Chart Measurements: The iServer transmitters come complete with a barometric
pressure, temperature and humidity probe for measurement of a single location.
2
Award-winning Technology: The iServer is simple to install and use. It features awardwinning technology that requires no special software except a Web Browser.
The iServer connects to an Ethernet Network with a standard RJ45 connector and sends
data in standard TCP/IP packets. It is easily configured with a simple menu using a Web
Browser and can be password protected. From within an Ethernet LAN or over the
Internet, the user simply types its IP address or an easy to remember name such as
"Room 5" or "ServRoom" in any Web Browser, and the iServer serves a Web Page with
the current readings.
Typical Applications: The iServer is great for monitoring temperature + humidity in
applications such as: clean rooms, computer rooms, HVAC systems, pharmaceutical
and food processing and storage, hospitals, laboratories, semiconductor fabs, electronic
assembly, warehousing, museums, manufacturing, greenhouses, farm animal shelters,
and many more.
Email Alarms: All iServer models that are on a LAN that is connected to the Internet can
trigger an alarm that can be sent by email to a single user or to a group distribution list,
including text messages to cell phones and PDA’s.
This device can be purchased as a stand alone DIN Rail mounted unit
(iBTX-D or iBTHX-D), as a bench/wall mount unit (iBTX-W or iBTHX-W), or as a
bench/wall mount unit with an LCD display, Flash Memory Card and Back-up
Battery (iBTX-SD).
The following example illustrates how you can hookup an iServer to your network:
A standard web browser can be used to monitor and chart barometric pressure,
temperature, humidity, and dew point. The browser can also be used to configure the
device’s IP address, passwords for access and overall configuration parameters.
An iLD Big Display can display temperature and barometric pressure received from an
iServer over the Ethernet or the Internet. The following example illustrates how you can
hookup an iServer and iLD to your network:

PART 3
NETWORK CONFIGURATION
3.1 Network Protocols
The iServer can be connected to the network using standard TCP/IP protocols.
It also supports ARP, HTTP (WEB server), DHCP, DNS and Telnet protocols.
3.2 Ethernet (MAC) Address
MAC (Media Access Control) address is your computer's unique hardware number.
When you're connected to the LAN from your computer, a correspondence table relates
your IP address to your computer's physical (MAC) address. The MAC address can be
found on the label of your device and contains 6 bytes (12 characters) of hexadecimal
numbers XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX hex
For example: 0A:0C:3D:0B:0A:0B
Remove the small label with the default IP address and there will be room to put
your IP address. See Figure 3.1

iSERVER'S VERSION #
3.3 DHCP
DHCP, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, enables computers and network devices to
receive their IP configurations from a DHCP server.
If DHCP is enabled on your iServer, as soon as the iServer that is connected to the
network is powered on, there will be an exchange of information between the iServer and
the DHCP server. As a result, the DHCP server will assign an IP address, a Gateway
address, a Subnet Mask, and a DNS address to the iServer. Note that the DHCP server
must be correctly configured to make such assignments.
If fixed or static IP address is desired, the DHCP function must be disabled.
The iServer is shipped with DHCP disabled (factory default).
The DHCP can be enabled by setting the DIP switch #3 to ON position (refer to Figure
3.2).
It’s very important to communicate with the network administrator in order to
understand DHCP and its existing configurations on the host server before
enabling DHCP on the iServer.
The iServer is shipped with a default static IP address of 192.168.1.200 and
Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0.

Figure 3.2 DIP Switch on iServer
Setting the iServer’s IP address to 0.0.0.0 will also enable DHCP.
3.4 DNS
DNS, Domain Name System, enables computers and devices to be recognized over a
network based on a specific name instead of IP addresses.
For example, instead of having to use http://192.168.1.200 (IP address), you would use
http://eis03ec or any name up to sixteen alphanumeric characters defined as a Host
Name in the iServer’s web server.
The default Host Name for an iServer is "eis" followed by the last four digits of the MAC
address of that iServer unit.
On Windows servers where DHCP and DNS are separate functions it is very
important to configure the DHCP server to communicate with DNS in order for
the iServer’s Host Name to correctly respond. If you cannot access the iServer
using its Host Name, please contact your network administrator to make sure
DHCP and DNS servers are linked together
10
3.5 Default IP Address
The iServer is shipped with a default IP address of 192.168.1.200 and Subnet Mask of
255.255.255.0. If you are going to use a Web browser or Telnet program to access the
iServer using its default IP address, make sure that the PC from which you’re
establishing the connection has an IP address that is in the same range as the iServer’s
IP address (192.168.1.x, where x can be any number from 1 to 254.
Your PC’s IP address cannot be the same as the iServer’s IP address.
You also need to make sure that your PC’s Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0. This is a
good way to access the iServer over the network and make any configuration changes
needed. If 192.168.1.200 is already in use on your network, use an Ethernet crossover
cable between your computer and the iServer to change the IP address or any other
settings within the iServer.
3.6 Port Number
All TCP connections are defined by the IP address and a port number. A port number is
an internal address that provides a TCP/IP interface between an application software on
a computer and a device on the network or between two devices on the network.
There are three default TCP socket port numbers assigned to the iServer:
1. Port 1000 when using HTTPget program (see Section 4.5).
2. Port 2000 when trying to access the sensor (probe) connected to the port of the
iServer to receive data.
3. Port 2002 when trying to access the iServer itself for Power Recycling the iServer
remotely. This can be done using Windows standard Telnet application.
Power recycling the iServer can also be done through the iServer’s Web Server (see
Section 4.2).
Telnet stands for Telecommunications Network, it is a protocol that provides a way for
users (or clients) to connect to computers (or servers) on a network, whether in the next
building or across the world.
Example: C:\>Telnet 192.168.1.200 2002
You will then get the following screen.
C:\

Figure 3.3 Telnet Login into the iServer
You can open a Telnet session using other terminal emulation programs like Tera Term
Pro (downloadable from the internet), which is a free software for MS-Windows. It
supports VT100 emulation, Telnet connection and serial com port connections.

PART 4
OPERATIONS
This iServer can be used and configured in several ways, depending on user’s preference
and network setup. It can be configured using a Web browser, like Netscape or Internet
Explorer. It can also be configured using iConnect Configuration Software.
If DHCP and DNS servers are used, the connection is very simple, no need to find the right
IP address or watch for network conflicts, these are all done for you by your network DHCP
and DNS server. All that is left for you to do, is to enable DHCP on the iServer (see Section
2.2) and use a straight network cable to connect the iServer to a hub and power it up.
If DHCP is not the preferred method, you can configure your PC’s network connection with
an IP address of 192.168.1.x that is in the same range as the iServer’s default IP address
(192.168.1.200) and connect to the iServer using a cross-over network cable between your
PC’s network port and the iServer. After you’re done with configuring the iServer, you can
always set your PC back to its original settings.
On your computer, from the MS-DOS Prompt window type "ping 192.168.1.200” and
press Enter. If DHCP and DNS servers are used type “ping eisxxxx”, where xxxx are the
last four digits of the iServer’s MAC address, located on the back of the device. You should
get a reply as shown in Figure 4.1.
You can use the iServer’s host name (eisxxxx) instead of its IP address only if
your DHCP server is configured to communicate with your DNS. Please consult
with your IT department for details.

4.2 Setting a New IP Address over the Network
Besides using the iConnect software, you may use the iServer’s default IP address to
access it and assign a new IP address to it.
The iServer is shipped with a default IP address of 192.168.1.200 and Subnet Mask of
255.255.255.0. You can configure your PC’s Network connection with an IP address that
is in the same range as the iServer’s IP address (192.168.1.x) and connect to the iServer
using a crossover network cable between your PC and the iServer.
With this completed, you can go to the DOS-Prompt and ping 192.168.1.200. If you
receive responses back (Figure 4.1), you can go to the Web browser and type in
http://192.168.1.200 and it will take you to the iServer’s Home Page.
Select Access Control , button, you’ll be asked for the password. First default LOGIN
password is "12345678" and the ADMINISTRATOR password is "00000000", then you
should be on the Access Control page were you can simply type in the desired Static IP
address, and click Save.
For more details about the “Access Control” page refer to Section 4.3.5.

If your computer does not have Java installed, please download from java.sun.com. You
can change the Java setting by clicking its icon in Control Panel. To load the applet, you
have to enable the web browser and disable cache.
1. Go to your computer's Control Panel. Open the Java Plug-in.
17
4.3.1.2 Browser Proxy Selection
Accessing iServer units within your internal network
• Usually when the computer and iServer are on an internal network, you will not use Proxy
server access.
• You should un-check the "Use Browser Settings" option on the "Proxy" tab.
Accessing iServer units using the internet
• Often the web browser will use Proxy server access to the internet. In such cases, the
default Java runtime settings on the "Proxy" tab should suffice. The default setting is the
"Use Browser Settings" option.
• If the default proxy setting doesn't work, then you may have a situation where the proxy
settings of the web browser are incorrect.
Diagnostics:
If the web page of the iServer appears, then the HTTP Proxy is working fine.
If the data isn't updated on the iServer upon selecting the Read Sensor web page, there may be
a problem with access through a winsock proxy server. In such cases your network
administrator will need to provide the winsock proxy server and port #s. (If the administrator
requires knowledge of the port # required on the iServer, the value is 2003).
These values should be entered into the Socks line on the "Proxy" tab (of the Java Plugin
control panel) or into the "connections" tab on the View,Internet Options dialog and make sure
that the Proxy tab shows that the "Use Browser Settings" option is not selected (i.e. when you
specify proxy connections in the Java Plugin control panel.
Accessing iServer units over Peer-to-Peer network
A simple peer-to-peer network is setup by disconnecting from the main network (as users will
often do when trying to do initial setup of the iServer) and then connecting the iServer to another
computer using a ethernet hub, an ethernet switch, or a Cross-over cable connection.
Often when using a peer-to-peer network, the Java plugin and the web browser (such as
Internet Explorer) have internet connections configured to connect through proxy servers. In
such case, you will need to simply assign the final IP address on this peer to peer network and
then view the iServer charts after connecting the iServer into the regular network. Otherwise you
can disable the Java plug-in's "Use Browser Settings" temporarily and then reconfigure the Java
plug-in settings for regular network access after testing the iServer chart access on your peerto-peer network.
The "Use Browser Settings" should not be selected. And the HTTP and Socks proxy entries
should be blank. Also, setup the internet browser so that proxy servers are disabled.

4.3.3 Configuration (continued)
B) Terminal Server
TCP/UDP*: The iServer supports TCP and UDP protocols (default is TCP). If UDP is
selected, it can be configured either for Broadcast UDP or Directed UDP. In case of
Broadcast UDP, the iServer will transmit the data to every node on the network. This
can be accomplished if the Remote IP Address is set to 255.255.255.255.
The Broadcast UDP is a practical solution when one iServer needs to communicate
with multiple nodes over the network. In the case of directed UDP, the iServer will
transmit the data to a specific node on the network. This can be accomplished if the
Remote IP Address is set to the IP address of that specific node.
Server Type: Continuous mode sends the temperature, pressure and humidity to the
Ethernet, every two seconds. It is mainly used to send readings to a remote display or
logger.
Command (default) mode needs a command to query the iServer to send the
response back to querying device.
Number of Connections: The range is from 0 to 5. If 0 is selected, the Terminal
Server feature is disabled. This means that no network connection can be made to
the sensor connected to the iServer. If 1 is selected, only one network connection
can be made to the iServer’s sensor. Any number higher than 1 would allow that
number of network hosts to read from the iServer simultaneously (default is 5).
Port: (default 2000) is the default TCP port number for the port to which the sensor is
connected. Ports 1000 (used for HTTPget, refer to Section 4.5), 2002, 2003, and 2004
are reserved for internal use.
Terminal Server usually describes a device that exchanges data between
Ethernet/TCPIP networks and RS-232/RS-485 systems. With this iServer,
the data is obtained digitally from the sensor (irrelevant to RS-232 or RS-485
interface) and can be accessed from anywhere on the network.
A computer program, such as Mail Notifier, OPC Server, iLog or HTTPget can
send TCP requests and obtain readings using the Terminal Server feature.
C) Remote Access
Remote IP Address: iServer can establish a connection to a remote device (e.g. an
iLD Remote Display with an Ethernet iServer embedded board).
Remote Port: (default 2000) the port number for the remote device to which the data
is sent (e.g. an iLD Display).
Remote Access:** Remote Access can be enabled and disabled. If enabled, the
iServer can send its data to a remote node on the same network (the “Remote IP
address” and “Remote Port” must be entered).
*TCP/UDP: when UDP mode is selected, Remote Access should be disabled
and Remote IP and Port are the UDP remote listening IP and Port. If the Remote
IP is set to 255.255.255.255, the UDP packet becomes a broadcasting packet
which will allow any device listening to the Remote port to receive the packet.
**If Remote Access is enabled, Terminal Server is automatically disabled.

4.3.4 Sensor Parameters (continued)
Remote Display Format: Remote display format is used for Terminal Server continuous
mode. This determines the data format sent by the iServer to a remote network node (e.g.
iLD Display)
H37.9% in humidity setting displays H, and 37.9% is the humidity value displayed.
Example: if the humidity is 37.9, then H37.9% will be seen on the remote display. If no
format is specified (blank), there is no reading sent out. If temperature is 75.7 and
T00.0F is used in temperature setting, the remote site will show T75.7F.
This format setup was originally made for the iLD Display, which has four or six LEDs.
For six LEDs, T00.00F format, and for four LEDs, 00.0F format are appropriate.
Remote End Char: The default value is 0D (Hex representation of <CR>). This means
that the iServer sends <CR> after each temperature, humidity, pressure, and dewpoint
value. This will be done either in Continuous or Command mode.
This is how the data will appear on the host with
0D assigned:
T75.7F
P1014.8mbar
H37.9%
D44.9F
If the end character for instance is 20 (Hex
representation of space), the data will then appear
as:
T75.7F P1014.8mbar H37.9% D44.9F
If nothing is set for the “Remote End Char” field,
the iServer will then forward the data to the LAN
with no characters followed.

Offset: Since the sensing probe is solid state electronics, there is no need for
calibration. If it’s determined that the readings are slightly off, the user can manually
assign numerical values to adjust the readings for temperature, humidity, pressure, and
dewpoint. For temperature offset, the unit must be in degree C. The Offset value can
either be a positive or negative number
4.3.5 Configure Access Control

case-sensitive characters.
If there is no Login Password assigned (blank box) the iServer will not require a
password to access and modify iServer Home page menu items.
Admin (administrator) Password: This allows users to access and modify the "Access

If there is no Administrator Password assigned (blank box) the iServer will not require
password to access and modify "Access Control" page.
Host Name: Refer to Section 3.4, DNS.
MAC Address: This is also called Hardware address or Ethernet address, which is
assigned to the iServer at production. The MAC (Media Access Control) address is the
iServer’s unique hardware number and is not changeable.
IP Address: The IP (Internet Protocol) address is a 32-bit number that identifies each
sender or receiver of information that is sent in packets across the Ethernet or the
Internet. The iServer’s default IP address is 192.168.1.200. The iServer’s IP address
should be changed to fit user’s networking environment. Consult with your IT department
for obtaining an IP address.
The DHCP will be enabled in the iServer if its IP address is set to 0.0.0.0. The
DHCP can also be enabled by setting the dip switch number 3 to ON position.
24
4.3.5 Configure Access Control (continued)
Gateway Address: A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another
network. A gateway is often associated with a router, which knows where to direct a
given packet of data that arrives at the gateway. If the iServer is sending packets to
another network node that is not on the same network on which the iServer is connected,
a gateway address needs to be given to the iServer. The gateway address should be the
IP address of the router connected to the same LAN to which the iServer is connected.
The iServer’s default gateway address is 0.0.0.0. Consult with your IT department for
obtaining a gateway address.
Subnet Mask: It’s a 32-bit number that is used to determine which part of the IP address
is the network portion and which part is the host portion. The iServer’s default subnet
mask is 255.255.255.0. Consult with your IT department for obtaining a subnet mask.
Changes made in the iServer’s Access Control page can be saved permanently
by pressing the Save button and power recycling the iServer (press Power
Recycle button). Pressing the Reset button will set all the fields back to their
default values.
4.4 Telnet Setup
In the Configuration page, set the Number of Connections to 1 - 5 other than 0, and use
a telnet simulation program to connect to the iServer (using Port 2000). In Continuous
mode, the telnet terminal will receive continuous data from the iServer. In Command
mode, the command can be sent to query the iServer and get a response back. Refer to
Figure 3.3.
4.5 HTTPget Program
The HTTPget software is used to send a single HTTP or TCP request to an iServer
product. In contrast, the telnet or Hyperterminal programs allow a continuous
connection with multiple requests to be sent to the iServer product.
Generally HTTPget is used for simply programming an IP address to the iServer or for
quickly obtaining a reading of from a device.
The iServer product must be configured from the configuration web page so that the
"Server Type" value is set to "Command" (This is positioned under the heading of
Terminal Server). Also the "Number of Connections" may need to be set to "0" to enable
Port 1000 (Port 1000 is for access in a non-standard terminal mode). To use Port 2000
access (where "2000" is the value stored in "Port"), the Number of Connnections should
be set to "2" for general usage. The value of 2 can later be changed to a value from 1 to
5 depending on needs for secure access or fault tolerance.
Whenever Terminal Server service (using Port 2000 by default) is required, the # of
connections must be set to a value from 1 to 5. The Terminal Server mode is the
recommended mode for the most reliable connection when operating with NEWPORT
software or with other programs supporting TCPIP communications. The Port 1000
access can be used with NEWPORT software and may be needed with some iServer
products when you need to view readings from the web page while simultaneously
collecting data through TCPIP communications.
25
4.5.1 HTTPget using Port 1000
You can setup and read the information from the iServer by using the HTTPget program.
The following program can be used to read data from the iServer firmware by using TCP
port 1000. The command string is sent to this TCP port, then the response can be read
back from the same socket.
The HTTPget.exe file is used to setup and read information from the iServer. This file will
be automatically installed when you install the MailNotifier software available on our
website and CD.
In order to use port 1000, in the Configuration page of the iServer you must set
“Number of Connections” to 0. In this case the port number will change to 1000
regardless of what the port number already is.
Notes on using HTTPget :
The HTTPget.exe program is installed to the windows directory (usually c:\winnt or
c:\windows) when installing the Mail Notifier software.
1. Open up a command window (or have a DOS window)
a) Click on start menu
b) Click on "Run"
c) In the dialog box that appears, type "cmd" or "command" and click on "OK" button.
d) A command window should now appear.
2. If you now type "httpget" and press the "enter" key, the program options should be
displayed.
3. Next run HHTPget with the options displayed below
httpget -r -S “*SRTF\r” 192.168.1.200:1000
where:
-r –S are parameters needed for the command string
"*SRTF" is the reading command:
Commands
*SRTC

Response:
076.6 (in Deg.F format)
26
4.5.2 HTTPget and ARP to setup Device IP Address
Use the iConnect software, which may be downloaded from our website, to do
these IP changes whenever possible.
Use ARP first to assign the mac address to a static IP address in computer arp table by
this command:
arp –s 192.168.1.200 00-03-34-00-06-b6
Then use the following command to assign new IP to the device:
httpget –r –S "00000000" 192.168.1.200:1
where:
“0000000” is admin. password. If the password is wrong, the unit will ignore the new IP.
If the new IP is taken, you will get the message " New IP is Assigned" after the HTTPget
command. The device will reset automatically. (Diagnostics LED is on for 2 second).
“192.168.1.200” is an example of an IP address. It is replaced with IP address suitable
for your network
“00-03-34-00-06-b6” is replaced with your iServer product MAC address.
4.6 ARP Protocol
ARP is the Internet layer protocol responsible for matching or obtaining the MAC
(hardware) address that corresponds to a particular IP address. The ARP command
allows the user to view the current contents of the ARP cache of the local computer
(residing on the same network). Microsoft includes the ARP.EXE utility for viewing and
modifying the ARP cache with its Windows products. The following ARP commands can
be used to view cache entries:
• arp –a fi Use this command to view all ARP cache entries.
• arp –a plus IP address fi Use this command to view ARP cache entries associated
with one particular interface on a network with multiple adapters.
• arp –g fi Same as arp –a.
• arp –N fi Use this command to display ARP entries for specific network interface.
• arp – s plus IP address plus Physical address fi Use this command to manually add
a permanent static entry to the ARP cache.
• arp –d fi Use this command to manually delete a static entry.
Ping the destination computer using IP address first before using the arp -a
command.

4.7 Remote Access (Tunneling)
To "tunnel", in this context, is to transmit data between two points through a private
conduit on a shared or public network. The network could be an Ethernet LAN, a WAN,
or the Internet. There is a Serial-to-Ethernet iServer that allows for a connection between
a serial device and a PC, or between two serial devices, using an existing network rather
than dedicated wiring.
The connected serial devices to iServer’s can communicate with each other back and
forth over the networks. This characteristic is called Tunneling and it’s illustrated below.

In order to use this Tunneling feature, some settings are required within the local and
remote iServer’s.
29
4.7.1 Local iServer
1. An IP address should be assigned to the iServer dynamically or statically (recommended).
2. Use a browser to access the Local iServer’s WEB page. Simply type the iServer’s IP
address at the browser’s URL location (i.e. 192.168.1.49) followed by an Enter key.
You should then see the iServer’s main WEB page.
3. Click on the Update button.
4. Click on Configuration, you will be prompted with a Password (default is 12345678).
5. On the Configuration page, under Serial Communication section, make sure the
parameters such as Baud Rate, Data Bits, Parity, Stop Bits, Flow Control, etc. match
with your attached serial device and its application software.
6. Make sure to set the End Character (Hex) to 00 and the Timeout to 0.
7. Under Terminal Server section, set Number of Connections to 0.
8. Under Remote Access section, set the Remote Access to enable, Enter the Remote
IP address (would be the IP address of the remote iServer, 192.168.1.50), and use the
default Remote Port number 2000.
9. Set Connection Control to Reconnect and set the Connection Timeout to a desired value.
The Reconnect option is used in Serial Tunneling and it applies only to the Local
iServer. If the tunneling connection between the two iServers goes down due to
network problems, power failure, etc., the Reconnect option will enable the Local
iServer to reconnect with the Remote iServer based on the specified time interval in
the Connection Timeout. For example, based on a timeout of 1000 x 10 ms (10
seconds), the Local iServer will continually attempt to reconnect and re-establish the
tunnel with the Remote iServer every 10 seconds.
10. Click on Save button for the changes to take place.
11. Initialize the serial device application software to establish the connection.

1. An IP address should be assigned to the iServer either statically or using a DHCP
server.Refer to the DHCP section of the user’s manual for details.
2. Use a browser to access the Remote iServer’s WEB page. Simply type the iServer’s
IP address at the browser’s URL location (i.e. 192.168.1.50) followed by an Enter key.
You should then see the iServer’s main WEB page.
3. Click on the Update button.
4. Click on Configuration, you will be prompted with a Password (default is 12345678).
5. On the Configuration page, under Terminal Server section, set the Number of
Connections to “5”.
6. Click on Save button for the changes to take place.
At this point, reset the power, first on the remote and then the local iServer and initialize
the local serial device to send or request data.

4.9 Mail Notifier Software
The Mail Notifier Software can be used only with NEWPORT Electronics instruments.
For complete information of how to use the Mail Notifier software, click on the Help menu
of the main window.
The Mail Notifier software generates email notifications for alarm conditions. Users can
be notified automatically of alarm conditions monitored via internet connections
throughout the world. By use of the email forwarding of alarm conditions, alarm
conditions can be monitored on a network isolated from the internet and forwarded to
connections on the Internet.
The Mail Notifier utility operates under Windows 98, NT 4.0, 2000, and XP in conjunction
with existing email that supports the MAPI messaging interface. If MS Outlook has been
loaded, the MAPI support should be available.
4.9.1 Installation
The Mail Notifier must be loaded on a computer running Microsoft Windows (versions
specified earlier) using an email program that provides MAPI access. Network access
must be available between this computer and the iServer. Network access must also be
available from this computer to the appropriate email server and from the email server to
the recipient’s email server.

This will be the list of email addresses to which alarm notifications will be sent.
Email Setup
The Mail Notifier is compatible with original MS OutlookTM and OutlookTM 2002 to 2005.
The Mail Notifier will attempt to automatically identify whether the Outlook is a newer
version. A red bar appears under the Mail Notifier splash window to confirm that the
detection of the 2002 or newer version is acceptable. With the newer versions, no
additional steps should be taken to enable the connection between the Mail Notifier and
the Email server.
MS Outlook tends to require that the users respond to a “login box” in order for
email access to be activated for Mail Notifier. Some other email clients may
allow for Mail Notifier to gain access without user login, as may be desired for a
system recovering from a power outage. See the Help files for more
information
4.9.2.1 Sending email Messages to a Cell Phone
In the Send To field, you can use the following format to have the Mail Notifier send an
email message to your cell phone. Since most cell phones are capable of receiving text
messages you just need to find the correct email format for your cell phone provider.
T-Mobile
phone_number@tmomail.net

4.9.3 Device Setting and Configuration
Device setup requires:
• Entering the IP address for iServer device (for example 192.168.1.200).
• Specifying Socket number (1000 or 2000 depending on iServer settings).
• Defining RS485 Unit # interface address (1 to 199). Enter "0" for RS232 interface
or for iServer.
• Entering Reading command. Normally set to SRT to obtain reading from the
devices.If you want to change this setting, refer to HTTPget Section 4.5.
• Defining the Alarm setup (High/Low, High value, or Low value).
• Specifying Pause Interval. It determines how many seconds each subsequential alarm
notification will be sent.
• Determining Monitor interval. It establishes the interval or time resolution in seconds
for which readings will be obtained from the device.

Appendix A
GLOSSARY
User of this manual should be familiar with following definitions:
ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) is a protocol for mapping an Internet Protocol address (IP
address) to a physical machine address that is recognized in the local network. For example,
the IP address in use today is an address that is 32-bits long. In an Ethernet local area network,
however, addresses for attached devices are 48-bits long. (The physical machine address is
also known as a Media Access Control or MAC address.) A table, usually called the ARP cache,
is used to maintain a correlation between each MAC address and its corresponding IP address.
ARP provides the protocol rules for making this correlation and providing address conversion in
both directions.
Ethernet is a network protocol defined by the IEEE 802.3 standard. Ethernet-based
networks use MAC Address rather then IP Address to exchange data between computers.
By using ARP and adding TCP/IP support, Ethernet devices may be connected as part of the
Internet. An Ethernet LAN typically uses coaxial cable or special grades of twisted pair wires.
The most commonly installed Ethernet systems are called 10BASE-T and provide transmission
speeds up to 10 Mbps. Devices are connected to the cable and compete for access using a
Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) protocol.
IP (Internet Protocol) is the method or protocol by which data is sent from one computer to
another on the Internet.
IP address (Internet Protocol address) is a 32-bit number that identifies each sender or
receiver of information that is sent in packets across the Internet.
IP Netmask is a 32-bit pattern of bits used to determine which part of the IP address is the
network portion and which part is the host portion.
MAC (Media Access Control) Address is your computer's unique hardware number. When
you're connected to the Internet from your computer, a correspondence table relates your IP
address to your computer's physical (MAC) address on the LAN.
Ping is a utility that tests the network connectivity. It is used to determine if the host is capable
of exchanging information with another host.
Port number/Socket number is a way to identify a specific process to which an Internet or
other network message is to be forwarded when it arrives at a server. It is a predefined address
that serves as a route from the application to the Transport layer or from the Transport layer to
the application of the TCP/IP system.
Sockets are a method for communication between a client program and a server program in a
network and defined as "the endpoint in a connection." Information transferred across the
Internet primarily occurs between sockets.
SMTP Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is an Internet standard for electronic mail (email) transfer
across the Internet. SMTP clients usually use SMTP to send email messages by specifying the
SMTP server. The email server uses SMTP to both send and receive email messages.
SNMP Simple Network Management Protocol is a network monitoring protocol to monitor
devices connected to an Ethernet Network.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the basic communication
language or protocol of the Internet. When you are set up with direct access to the Internet, your
computer is provided with a copy of the TCP/IP program just as every other computer that you
may send messages to or get information from also has a copy of TCP/IP. TCP/IP often is used
as a general term to indicate generic access to the Internet.
UDP/IP (User Datagram Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the TCP/IP standard protocol that
allows an application program on one machine to send a datagram to an application program on
another. The UDP can be either in Broadcast or Directed form. The Broadcast UDP transmits
data to every node on the same network. The Directed UDP transmits data to one node only.

Appendix B
IP Address
An IP address is a unique 32-bit address assigned to a computer and includes:
• A network ID number identifying a network.
• A host ID number identifying a computer on the network.
All IP addresses have been divided into three smaller groups (classes) A, B and C
• Class A addresses have 8-bits of network ID and 24-bits of host ID. They can support
a large number of hosts, approximately 2 = 16,777,216 computers per network.
The IP addresses range in binary from 00000001.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx
to 01111111.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx
The IP addresses range in decimal from 1.x.x.x to 127.x.x.x
Class A network ID’s support a very large number of hosts.
• Class B addresses have 16-bits of network ID and 16-bits of host ID. They can
support approximately 216 = 65,536 computers per network.
The IP addresses range in binary from 10000000 00000000.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx
to 10111111 11111111.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx
The IP addresses range in decimal from 128.0.x.x to 191.255.xxx.xxx
Class B network ID’s support a medium number of hosts.
• Class C addresses have 24-bits of network ID and 8-bits of host ID. They can support
approximately 28 = 256 computers per network.
The IP addresses range in binary from 11000000.00000000.00000000.xxxxxxxx
to 11011111.11111111.11111111.xxxxxxxx
The IP addresses range in decimal from 192.0.0.xxx to 223.255.255.xxx
Class C network ID’s support a small number of hosts.
The rest of the addresses are divided into two classes, D and E.
Class D networks are not assigned to the host. They are used for multicasting.
The address range from 224.x.x.x to 239.x.x.x
Class E networks are experimental or reserved addresses.
The address range from 240.x.x.x to 247.x.x.x
42
Appendix C
IP Netmask
IP Netmask or Subnet Mask is a 32-bit pattern of ones and zeros used to determine
network portion of an IP address from the host portion of the IP address. Subnet mask is
a network ID that is created by borrowing bits from host portion of IP address and using
them as part of a network ID. The table below shows a default subnet mask for address
Classes A, B, and C. Each bit that is set to "1" in the subnet mask corresponds to the bit
in the IP address that is to be used as the network ID. Each bit that is set to "0" in the
subnet mask corresponds to a bit in the IP address that is to be used as the host ID.

If your network requires more network ID’s, you can extend the default subnet mask to
include additional bits from the host ID. This allows for additional network ID’s within the
network. The table below shows some examples of subnet masks and bits moved from
the hosts ID to create a new subnet.

Appendix F
Sensor Information
F.1 Accuracy
Figure F.1
Figure F.2
RH Accuracy Chart
Temperature Accuracy Chart
Accuracies are tested at Manufacture’s Outgoing Quality Control at 25°C (77°F) and 3.3V.
Values exclude hysteresis and non-linearity, and is only applicable to noncondensing
environments.
F.2 Operating Conditions
Sensor works stable within
recommended normal range – see
Figure. Long term exposures to
conditions outside normal range,
especially at humidity >80%RH,
may temporarily offset the RH
signal (+3 %RH after 60h). After
return to normal range it will slowly
return towards calibration state by
itself. See Section F.4
“Reconditioning Procedure” to
accelerate eliminating the offset.
Prolonged exposure to extreme
conditions may accelerate ageing.
Figure F.3 Normal Range
F.3 Storage Conditions and Handling Instructions
It is of great importance to understand that a humidity sensor is not a normal electronic
component and needs to be handled with care.
Chemical vapors at high concentration in combination with long exposure times may offset
the sensor reading. For these reasons it is recommended to store the sensors in original
packaging including the sealed ESD bag at following conditions: Temperature shall be in the
range of 10°C – 50°C (0 – 80°C for limited time) and humidity at 20 – 60%RH (sensors that
are not stored in ESD bags). For sensors that have been removed from the original
packaging we recommend to store them in ESD bags made of PE-HD8.
In manufacturing and transport the sensors shall be prevented of high concentration of
chemical solvents and long exposure times. Out-gassing of glues, adhesive tapes and
stickers or out-gassing packaging material such as bubble foils, foams, etc. shall be avoided.
Manufacturing area shall be well ventilated.
47
Appendix F
Sensor Information (continued)
F.4 Reconditioning Procedure
As stated above extreme conditions or exposure to solvent vapors may offset the sensor. The
following reconditioning procedure may bring the sensor back to calibration state:
Baking: 100 – 105°C at < 5%RH for 10h
Re-Hydration: 20 – 30°C at ~ 75%RH for 12h.
(75%RH can conveniently be generated with saturated NaCl solution. 100 – 105°C
correspond to 212 – 221°F, 20 – 30°C correspond to 68 – 86°F)
F.5 Temperature Effects
Relative humidity reading strongly depends on temperature. Therefore, it is essential to keep
humidity sensors at the same temperature as the air of which the relative humidity is to be
measured. In case of testing or qualification the reference sensor and test sensor must show
equal temperature to allow for comparing humidity readings.
The packaging of sensor is designed for minimal heat transfer from the pins to the sensor.
Still, if the sensor shares a PCB with electronic components that produce heat it should be
mounted in a way that prevents heat transfer or keeps it as low as possible. Furthermore,
there are self-heating effects in case the measurement frequency is too high.
F.6 Light
The sensor is not light sensitive. Prolonged direct exposure to sunshine or strong UV
radiation may age the housing.
F.7 Materials Used for Sealing / Mounting
Many materials absorb humidity and will act as a buffer increasing response times and
hysteresis. Materials in the vicinity of the sensor must therefore be carefully chosen.
Recommended materials are: Any metals, LCP, POM (Delrin), PTFE (Teflon), PE, PEEK, PP,
PB, PPS, PSU, PVDF, PVF. For sealing and gluing (use sparingly): Use high filled epoxy for
electronic packaging (e.g. glob top, underfill), and Silicone.
Out-gassing of these materials may also contaminate the sensor (see Section F.3). Therefore
try to add the sensor as a last manufacturing step to the assembly, store the assembly well
ventilated after manufacturing or bake at 50°C for 24h to outgas contaminants before
packing.
