Installing the MC-7400 Wall Mounting

The MC-7400 can be installed on a wall by using the wall-mounting kit that is included in the package. STEP 1: Use eight screws for each bracket and attach the brackets to the rear of the MC-7400. STEP 2: Use two screws (Ø3.7 mm, 60 mm in length) per side to attach the MC-7400 to a wall.

3-2

MC-7400 Series HW UM Hardware Connection Description

Wiring Requirements

Read and follow these common safety precautions before proceeding with the installation of any electronic device: • Use separate paths to route wiring for power and devices. If power wiring and device wiring paths must cross, make sure the wires are perpendicular at the intersection point.

NOTE

Do not run signal or communication wiring together with power wiring in the same wire conduit. To avoid interference, wires with different signal characteristics should be routed separately. • • • Use the type of signal transmitted through a wire to determine which wires should be kept separate. The rule of thumb is that wiring that shares similar electrical characteristics can be bundled together. Keep input wiring and output wiring separate. It is advisable to label the wiring on all devices in the system.

ATTENTION

Safety First!

Be sure to disconnect the power cord before installing and/or wiring your MC-7400.

Wiring Caution!

Calculate the maximum possible current in each power wire and common wire. Observe all electrical codes dictating the maximum current allowable for each wire size. If the current goes above the maximum ratings, the wiring could overheat, causing serious damage to your equipment.

Temperature Caution!

Be careful when handling the unit. When the unit is plugged in, the internal components generate heat, and consequently the outer casing may feel hot to the touch.

Connecting the Power

The MC-7400 Series comes with a 100 to 240 VAC power input for AC power model, or a 24 VDC power input (via the terminal block) for DC power model. If power is supplied properly, the Power LED will light up. For safety reasons, please use DC terminal block cables with the following specifications:

Wire range: 14-22 AWG NOTE

The DC model should be supplied by a UL-listed power source, whose output meets the ES1 standard and is rated at 24 VDC, 4.06 A (min.). If you need further assistance selecting a power source, contact a Moxa representative.

MC-7400 Series HW UM Hardware Connection Description

Grounding the MC-7400

Grounding and careful wire routing help limit the effects of noise due to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Run the ground connection from the ground screw to the grounding surface prior to connecting the power.

ATTENTION

This product is intended to be mounted on a well-grounded surface, such as a metal panel. The location of the earthing/grounding wire on the terminal block power connector is shown in the diagram below. Connect the wire to an appropriately grounded metal surface.

Connecting Data Transmission Cables

This section describes how to connect the MC-7400 computer to the network and/or serial devices.

Connecting to the Network

Plug your network cable into the computer’s Ethernet port. The other end of the cable should be plugged into your Ethernet networking device. When the cable is properly connected, the LEDs on the embedded computer’s Ethernet port will glow to indicate a valid connection. The 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet LAN ports use 8-pin RJ45 connectors. The following diagram shows the pinouts for these ports. The LED indicators on the right-top (for the upper LAN connector) and right-bottom (for the lower LAN connector) corners glow a solid green color when the cable is properly connected to a 100 Mbps Ethernet network. The LED will flash on and off when Ethernet packets are being transmitted or received. The LED indicators on the left-top and left-bottom corners glow a solid yellow color when the cable is properly connected to a 1000 Mbps Ethernet network. The LED will flash on and off when Ethernet packets are being transmitted or received.

Upgrading the BIOS

This section describes how to upgrade the BIOS. IMPORTANT BIOS upgrades, if not done correctly, can permanently damage the computer. We strongly recommend that you contact Moxa’s technical support staff for assistance in order to obtain all necessary tools and the most current advice before attempting to upgrade the BIOS on any Moxa device.

Step 1: Create a Bootable USB Disk

Before upgrading the BIOS, you must create a bootable USB RAM drive, which you can use as a system rescue device. A useful software suite, Rufus for creating a bootable USB RAM drives can be downloaded at: https://rufus.akeo.ie/ To create a bootable USB disk using Rufus software, do the following: 1.

Start Rufus and select the USB device that you want to use as a bootable disk from the Device drop-down list. 2.

Select MBR partition scheme for BIOS or UEFI computers to boot from a legacy BIOS or UEFI. 3.

Select FAT (Default) from File system drop-down list. 4.

Select 16 kilobytes (Default) for Cluster size. 5.

Enter a drive name under New volume label. 6.

Select the Quick format, Create a bootable disk using FreeDOS, and Create extended label and icon files format options. 7.

Click Start to format and create the bootable USB drive.

ATTENTION

We suggest you use a USB drive with under 2 GB disk space, as larger USB drives may not support FAT file format and consequently fail to boot.

Step 2: Prepare the Upgrade File
