< Line Monitoring Function >

RS-485 communications of two-wire half duplex is required to send data after confirming that any devices have not sent data into the RS-485 line. The line monitoring function allows to detect that any devices have not sent data into the RS-485 line, and to conduct the flow control.

To use this function, the flow control of built-in XPort is required to set to CTS/RTS

(Hardware).

RS-485 Line Condition

The period of time from when to detect a space bit of the data in the RS-485 line sent by another device, to when not to get to continuously detect a space bit over internal timer time of the converter, while the RS-485 driver of the converter is not active.

OFF (Active) Setting

To keep the driver active, set the CP1 of the Xport IO pin “L”(active). (“H” is for non-active.)

The default setting of CP1 is a low level.

ON (Auto) Setting

This setting detects the first space bit (start bit) in the string which you wish to send from the converter to the RS-422/485 line, and automatically makes the driver active. The active status of the driver keeps from the last space bit in the string being sent until the internal timer time being set. After that, the driver automatically becomes non-active.

Selects the RS-422/485 line specification which is connected to the converter.

OFF (Full Duplex) Setting

This setting makes the converter operate in the full duplex RS-422 mode. Communicated data is sent from SD+ and SD- terminals, and is received to SD/RD+ and SD/RD- terminals.

ON (Half Duplex) Setting

This setting makes the converter operate in the half duplex RS-485 mode. Communicated data is sent and received through SD/RD+ and SD/RD- terminals.

SW-B No.2 (Echo Back Setup)

When you communicate in the half duplex RS-485 mode, setting this switch to ON prohibits the data, which is sent from the converter to the RS-485 line, is echoed back to the LAN host.

Therefore, while the driver is active, the ON setting makes the receiver non-active. The full duplex RS-422 mode does not echo back data even when this switch is in the OFF setting.

Note: Be sure to set this switch to OFF in the full duplex RS-422 mode.

SW-B No.3 (Terminal End Between SD+ and SD-)

Setting this switch to ON inserts the terminator 100 ohm between SD+ and SD- (terminal block 1, 2) in a direction of parallel.

SW-B No.4 (Terminal End Between SD/RD+ and SD/RD-)

Setting this switch to ON inserts the terminator 100 ohm between SD/RD+ and SD/RD-

(terminal block 3, 4) in a direction of parallel.

The following chart shows a connection example to connect the converter to more than two devices in the half duplex mode by N to N.

Power Source

Supply power to the converter in either of two ways.

Supplies power by plugging the included AC adapter or the optional AC adapter into the

AC adapter plug on the converter.

The included adapter is for AC100V. When requiring AC200V power source, an optional

AC adapter, DSA-0151F-09A is available.

• Supplies DC+5 to +12V (max. 300mA) from 6 pin of 6 pole terminal block.

Note1: When powering from the terminal block, do not connect the AC adapter.

Note2: The included AC adapter is AC100V. For AC200V, a wide input AC adapter (optional) is required.

4-5. SI-65 Built-in XPort Setup

Depending on network environments used or the usage, built-in XPort setup of the converter is required to change. To learn about XPort setup, read “XPort Setup” in Chapter 5. In addition, when using the COM port redirector, read “COM Port Redirector” in Chapter 6.

17

Chapter5 XPort Setup

5-1. Built in XPort

LINEEYE has sold SI-60F/SI-60/SI-65 with XPort-03 or Xport-04 with v1.8 and v6.x (v6.1.0.0 or former). You should have Xport-04 with v6.7.0.1 if you have this instruction manual.

*There is no difference between Xport-03 and Xport-04 on specifications. DeviceInstaller

(v4.3.0.1) displays as “Xport-03/04”.

How to find the XPort version:

Open the DeviceInstaller(v4.3.0.1) and find “XPort-03/04-firmware v6.x.x.x” or see the “Device

Details”. You can also check the massage “Software version V6.x.x.x(xxxxxx) XPTEXE” when connecting to the Telnet.

5-3. IP Address Assignment

Before using the converter, you need to assign IP address to the built-in XPort.

There are some IP address assignment methods. Assign by the proper method, concerning the usage and environments, and consulting with your network manager.

Auto IP address Assignment by using DHCP and Auto IP function

Set the IP address of Xport as following to use DHCP and Auto IP function.

IP address 0.0.0.0

(factory setting)

0.0.1.0

DHCP Valid

Auto IP Valid

Valid

Invalid

Using the DHCP Function

When the DHCP function is valid, XPort receives IP address, subnet mask and default gateway address, which were dynamically assigned by DHCP server on the network, at the time of starting XPort operation.

Using the AutoIP Function

When AutoIP function is valid and there is no DHCP server on the network, XPort selects an

IP address within the class B subnet 169.254.x.x, at the time of starting Xport operation. And it uses the ARP request to check whether or not any devices on the network use the address.

If it is not used, the address will be used as the XPort address. If it is used, XPort selects another IP address from the reserved addresses, and check it again by the ARP request.

AutoIP is for small-scale network without DHCP server to assign the IP address. AutoIP cannot be used as DHCP. When the DHCP server is found, XPort will restart after switching to IP address assigned by the DHCP server. Setting the IP address to 0.0.1.0 keeps the DHCP function valid, and only makes the AutoIP function invalid.

When setting IP address, you may need the hardware address of the converter. The hardware address, which may also be called Ethernet or MAC address, is the original address assigned to network devices. The address is written on the bottom of LAN connector on the converter. Before starting the setup, check the address.

19

Using the Device Installer

The CD-ROM contains a utility “Device Installer” to assign the IP address. “Microsoft .NET

Framework 2.0” or “.NET Framework 4.0” are needed for some version of the Device Installer.

If you already have DeviceInstaller(v4.2.0.1) on Windows XP or Vista, you do not have to update to the DeviceInstaller(v4.3.0.1).

Note: Please use DeviceInstaller (v3.6.0.6) when using Xport firmware v6.x and v1.8 (or former) together. When using DeviceInstaller (v3.6.0.6), v6.x of XPort-03/04 is displayed as “Unknown:x5”. Open the DeviceInstaller and connect from the web manager or telnet to setup XPort v6.x. You can install the Device Installer (v3.6.0.6) from CD-ROM, which was attached to the product.

Installing the Device Installer

If you already have different version of DeviceInstaller, please uninstall it.

Note: Please start installing where the Internet is available. “.NET Framwork” will be automatically installed when starting the installation.

1. Insert the utility CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.

For the DeviceInstaller V4.3.0.1, enter as following:

“CD-ROM Drivename:\lantronix\DeviceInstaller\Ver4.3.0.1\setup.exe”.

3. Follow the installation wizard instructions.

After Installing the DeviceInstaller, following page will be appeared, and select “No”.

Only when PIB file (File for corresponding the Device ID and Device name) needs to be updated, select “Yes”.

20

Selecting the Device on Device Installer

1. Start Device Installer from the start menu. The main window of Device Installer appears. It finds SI-60F/SI-60/SI-65 connected to the network automatically and lists in a table on the main window. (If there are devices other than

SI-60F/SI-60/SI-65 using XPort on the network, they are also listed in a table..)

2. Select what matches the hardware address for the device being set from the table.

Fixed IP Assignment Method on Device Installer

1. Select the device you would like to setup and click “Assign IP” (or from “Device” menu, select “Assign IP Address”). “Assign IP Address” dialog box appears. Select

“Assign a specific IP address” and click “Next” button.

If the IP address is not selected from the listed table on Device Installer, “Device

Identification” page will be displayed. Enter the hardware address of the device being set and click “Next” button to display “Assign IP Address” dialog box. (You can find the hardware address at the lower part of LAN connector.)

21

2. “IP Settings” page appears. Enter the values for IP address, Subnet mask and

Default gateway. Then click “Next” button.

(Input the IP address of router in the “Default gateway” when using Internet .)

3. XPort restarts by pressing “Assign” button on “Assignment” page. Then, the specified IP address will be reflected to the screen.

DHCP/Auto IP Setup Method on Device Installer

1. Select a device you would like to setup, then click “Assign IP” icon or select “Assign

IP Address” from “Device” menu. “Assignment Method” dialog box appears.

2. Select “Obtain an IP Address Automatically”, and then click “Next” button.

3. “IP Discovery Settings” page appears. Select a function you would like to enable, and then click “Next” button.

4. XPort restart by pressing “Assign” button on the “Assignment” page.

Note: We recommend you to disable DHCP and BOOTP or always keep Auto-IP effective because when failing in the address assignment, Device Installer cannot detect SI-60F/SI-60/SI-65 even if DHCP, BOOTP or both are effective.

The screen and steps will be different in each version of DeviceInstaller. For more details of DeviceInstaller, refer to the online help or XPort user’s manual in the CD-ROM.

Chapter6 COM Port Redirector

6-1. Overview

The included CD-ROM contains Lantronix “COM Port Redirector.”

The COM Port Redirector is the utility software to get the serial communication application not supporting the network connection to be able to use on the network.

The redirector creates the virtual COM ports in Windows. Communications for these virtual

COM ports are transferred to the serial port on the converter through the network.

Most applications using a COM port operate without troubles because a virtual COM port seems like a real serial port; however, some applications with time limit for data transmission/reception may not operate. This is why a waiting time of communications via network becomes longer than one of communications for the real COM port. In this case, you need to increment a value of a time out using application software, to support socket communications, etc.

Note: The COM Port Redirector works at most of the application software. However, some applications, which have a limit to receive/transmit data, may not work well. In this case, change the timeout of communication longer or change the setting to support socket communications.

Note: The COM Port Redirector cannot be used with other software, which creates the virtual COM port. Be sure not to install the COM Port Redirector to PCs, which have already installed such software.

Each firmware version of COM Port Redirector can be found in the CD-ROM. For COM Port

Redirector Ver4.x or later, you need to have an appropriate Microsoft .NET Framework. Please install the .NET Framework before installing it, or be sure the Internet is available when installing it. Refer to the following compatible table, and we recommend you to use the latest version of COM Port Reader
