Via 10
ETHERNET BRIDGE
General Description
Software Description
The Via 10 Ethernet Bridge allows control of RW-232
and RIP/485 based equipment (Rane SRM 66) over a standard Ethernet 10Base-T network. Additionally, the Via 10
includes eight 8-bit ADC inputs (0 - 5 volts DC) and eight
open-collector outputs, all accessible over the Ethernet
network.
The RS-232 and RS-485 ports have programmable baud
rate and parity settings, allowing them to be connected to a
wide variety of devices. The RS-232 port is connected using a
standard (insert joke here) male DB-9 connector, providing
the Ground, Tx and Rx lines. The RS-485 port also includes
an 8 volt supply line for powering low-current peripherals.
Both ports behave independently, allowing simultaneous
usage utilizing separate baud and parity settings.
The VIP (Versatile Input Port) consists of eight 8-bit ADC
(analog to digital converter) inputs on a 10-pin Euroblock
connector along with a ground and reference (5 VDC) supply.
The VIP can be used for reading potentiometers, switches,
temperature sensors or any other low-voltage DC source.
The VOP (Versatile Output Port) has eight open-collector
outputs along with a separate ground and 12 VDC supply line
(100 mA max). The VOP is ideal for switching relays, driving
LEDs, low-voltage incandescent lights or other control logic.
A standard RJ-45 jack allows easy connection into an
Ethernet 10Base-T network.
The Via 10 communicates seamlessly with Rane’s RW
232 family of products using RaneWare.
The Via 10’s firmware is field re-programmable through
the 10Base-T connection.
All communication is based on common IP (Internet
Protocol) standards for interfacing with more sophisticated
systems.
A configuration utility is included for setting the Via 10.
RaneWare is also included for use with RW-232 products
(Windows 95 and 98SE). ActiveX components are also
included for building your own user interfaces.
The ActiveX controls allow access to the Via 10’s VIP,
VOP, RS-232 and RS-485 ports, along with providing higher
level access to many parameters found in Rane’s SRM 66, SR
1L, RPE 228d, RPM 26v, ECB 62e and ECM 64e. Also
included are on-screen general purpose LED-like indicators
and meters for RW 232 or other status displays.
The ActiveX controls can be linked together inside
Internet Explorer, Visual Basic, Delphi, C++, Labview or
other software development tools which support ActiveX
controls to create custom user interfaces. Microsoft’s software program for creating HTML web pages, Front Page,
also supports ActiveX controls and is a readily available
software development tool with extensive third-party support.

Applications
• Extending RW 232 communications range over a LAN
• Custom control interface over Ethernet LAN for:
• RS-232
• RS-485
• Integrating Rane SR 1L remotes with other equipment
• Versatile Input Port (VIP)
• Pots, switches, sensors (DC sources)
• Versatile Output Port (VOP)
• Drive relays, LEDS, RW 232 MRP or other contact
closure ports, (logic control)
There are two main classes of applications for the Via 10.
It is useful for extending the communications range of Rane’s
RW 232-based equipment, allowing a rack or racks to be
controlled anywhere on a LAN through RaneWare RW 232’s
control software. The second Via 10 application class is in
custom control interfaces, providing both control of relays
and indicators and feedback from pots, switches, sensors et
cetera over the network. Rane’s SR 1L Remotes are also
useful for these applications as generic system control devices
over a LAN. See the Via 10 Manual for more applications
examples.
RW 232 Network Extension
RW 232 racks can easily be placed anywhere on a LAN,
allowing control from any computer connected to the same
network. Used as such, the Via 10 can effectively extend the
distance of RW 232 communications without the need to
resort to RS-422 or RS-485 converters. Ethernet LANs permit
cable lengths up to 100 meters between devices using CAT 5
cable. Fiber optic-based LANs provide much greater distances.
Custom Control Interfaces
The Via 10’s VIP and VOP ports, along with its RS-485
and RS-232 ports make it well suited for many control
interfaces. Using the ActiveX software components, one can
create an infinite variety of control interfaces and links
between controls and serial and/or other network data.
Up to seven of Rane’s SR 1L remotes can be wired
directly to the Via 10’s RS-485 port. Note that SR 1L remotes
need not be utilized with just the SRM 66 (for which they are
an accessory). They can be linked via their ActiveX controls
to any system parameter you desire such as audio levels or the
space shuttle’s parameters like pitch, yaw & roll – one remote
for each, of course.
