Introduction
Welcome to Moxa’s NPort Express, a compact palm-sized communications device that allows you
to control RS-232/422/485 serial devices over a TCP/IP Ethernet.

The NPort Express DE-311 provides a data communications solution for connecting Windows and
Linux hosts to asynchronous serial devices over a TCP/IP Ethernet network. Using the NPort
Express is like adding a serial port to your PC using a serial board, but with the added advantage
of the TCP/IP network. With the NPort Express, Windows hosts can connect to a native serial port
and PC-based Linux hosts can connect to a real tty port, all over a network. Virtually any serial
device can be attached to the NPort Express to become network accessible, and the network can be
configured to allow control of the device from any location in the world.
After driver installation, Windows will recognize the serial port on the NPort Express as a real
COM port; Linux will recognize the port as a real tty port. The NPort Express provides basic
transmit/receive data functions, as well as RTS, CTS, DTR, DSR, and DCD control signals.
The NPort Express can be used with your existing applications and comes with a software utility
and maintenance wizard.

DIN Rail
The DIN rail attachments provide a very convenient installation option for many industrial
applications. Installation instructions are as follows:
STEP 1: Use the screws to attach the DIN rail mounts to the NPort Express’s ears.
⇒
STEP 2: The two ends of the rail mount are
named A and B. Hook the A end over
the top edge of the rail.
STEP 3: Push the unit against the rail. You
should hear the B end clicking into
place over the bottom edge of the rail.

To remove the NPort Express from the DIN rail, simply reverse Steps 2 and 3 above. Use your
fingers to pull down on the B end, which should release the bracket from the rail.
Wall Mount
Wall installation is another convenient installation option for many industrial applications.
Installation instructions are as follows:
STEP 1: Obtain two screws with heads no greater than 6.5 mm in diameter and shafts no greater
than 3 mm in diameter. At the desired wall location, drive the screws into the wall with
7.8 cm separation between the screws. Do not drive the screws all the way into the wall;
leave about 2 mm clearance.

RS-485 ADDC
The DIP switches are located on the rear panel. SW1 toggles the serial port between data and
console operation (ON or up for serial console operation, and OFF or down for data
communication). Data operation is the normal operating mode for controlling serial devices;
console operation is for accessing the NPort Express configuration parameters. Note that after
modifying SW1 settings, the NPort Express will reboot to initialize the new mode. You must wait
a few seconds for the green Ready LED to blink off and then on again, indicating that the function
of the serial port has been changed.
SW2 and SW3 control the serial port’s data communication interface. Note that RTS stands for
Ready to Send and ADDC stands for Automatic Data Direction Control.
Keep the following points in mind when setting the DIP switches.
• RS-232 Console
To use the serial port as a console connection, such as when using Moxa PComm Terminal
Emulator or HyperTerminal, set SW1 to the ON position.
• Telnet Connection
Some configuration may be carried out through a Telnet connection, during which data is
transmitted through the NPort Express’s Ethernet port. However, you must set SW1 to the OFF
position to establish a Telnet connection.

Ethernet Installation
Connecting to the Ethernet Port
Connecting to a Hub or Switch
For most applications, plug one end of your Ethernet cable into the NPort Express’s
10/100BaseTX port, and the other end into a hub or switch that is connected to your network. In
this case, you should use a standard straight-through Ethernet cable, which is readily available
from many commercial vendors. You may also make your own cable by referring to the following
cable wiring diagram.

Telnet Console
The Telnet console is used to view and modify the unit’s configuration. After installing the unit
into a serial device, administrators configure their device remotely by opening a Telnet console
session over the network. The following examples refer to a Telnet console session on a Windows
98 host, but the same instructions should apply to all Windows operating systems.

Opening the Telnet Console
A Telnet console session may be opened from the Windows Start menu. Select Start Æ Run... to
open a dialog box, and then enter the following:
telnet [unit’s IP address]
Click OK to begin the Telnet session.
At the prompt, enter “1” for ansi/vt100, and then press Enter.
The main menu of the unit’s Telnet console will appear as shown.
Navigating the Telnet Console
Once the Telnet console has been opened, you may navigate through the console using the
following keys:
• Arrow keys: Use the arrow keys to navigate between different options. If the arrow keys do not
respond, you may need to verify your terminal settings by selecting Preferences in the
Terminal menu:
A-2
NPort DE-311 Hardware Installation Guide
Telnet Console
Make sure VT100 Arrows under Terminal Options is enabled (checked), and then click OK
to return to the Telnet console.
• Tab: You may also use the tab key to navigate between different options in the Telnet console.
• Enter: Use the Enter key to select the item that is currently highlighted in the Telnet console.
Depending on the item, the Enter key may open a submenu, select a field for modification, or
perform an action, depending on the item.
• Esc: Use the Esc key to cancel a selection or action and return to the previous menu.
• Alphanumeric keys: Alphanumeric keys (“A” to “Z” and “0” to “9”) are used when entering
certain parameters such as IP address.
After making changes to the unit’s configuration in the Telnet console, you will need to save the
changes and restart the unit for the new configuration to take effect.
Main Menu
The main menu displays six categories for configuration: serverConfig, Serialport, Monitor,
Ping, Restart, and Exit. Select the desired category and press Enter in order to view and
configure the parameters within that category. Each parameter is listed with the parameter name on
the left and current setting on the right. Settings that can be modified are displayed in brackets.

Serial Console
The unit supports configuration through the serial console, which is similar to the Telnet console
but is accessed through the RS-232 console port rather than through the network. Once you have
entered the serial console, the configuration options and instructions are the same as if you were
using the Telnet console.
The following instructions and screenshots show how to enter the serial console using PComm
Terminal Emulator, which is available free of charge as part of the PComm Lite suite. You may
use a different terminal emulator utility, but your actual screens and procedures may vary slightly
from the following instructions.

5.
Make sure the unit is powered off. Use a serial cable to connect the unit’s serial port to your
computer’s male RS-232 serial port.
Set the SW1 DIP switch on the rear panel to ON for serial console operation.
From the Windows desktop select Start Æ All Programs Æ PComm Lite Æ Terminal
Emulator.
The PComm Terminal Emulator window should appear. From the Port Manager menu,
select Open, or simply click the Open icon as shown below:
The Property window opens automatically. Select the Communication Parameter tab, and
then select the appropriate COM port for the connection (COM1 in the example below).
Configure the parameters for 19200, 8, N, 1 (19200 for Baudrate, 8 for Data Bits, None for
Parity, and 1 for Stop Bits).

Serial Console
From the Property window’s Terminal tab, select ANSI or VT100 for Terminal Type and
click OK.
In the PComm window, you will be prompted for the terminal type. Press 1 for ansi/vt100 and
then press ENTER. At this point, the console interface will be identical to the Telnet console.
