•
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
•
Keep input wiring and output wiring separate.
•
It is advisable to label the wiring to all devices in the system.
rule of thumb is that wiring that shares similar electrical characteristics can be bundled together.

V2406A Hardware Manual
Hardware Connection Description
ATTENTION
Safety First!
Be sure to disconnect the power cord before installing and/or wiring your V2406A.
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
Connect the 12 to 48 VDC power line with M12 A-coded connector to the V2406A computer. If the power is
supplied properly, the “Ready” LED will glow a solid green after a 25- to 30-second delay.
Grounding the Unit
Grounding and 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 mounting surface, such as a metal panel.
SG: The Shielded Ground (sometimes called Protected Ground) contact is the
central pin of the power input connector. Connect the SG wire to an appropriate
grounded metal surface.
Connecting Data Transmission Cables
In this section, we describe how to connect the V2406A embedded computer to a network and serial devices.
Connecting to the Network
Connect your network cable to the embedded computer’s Ethernet port. The other end of the cable should be
connected to your Ethernet network. When the cable is properly connected, the LEDs on the embedded
computer’s Ethernet port turns on to indicate a valid connection.
Two 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet ports using M12 X-coded connectors are located on the rear panel of the
embedded computer. See the following figure for the location of the Ethernet ports and the pin assignments.
NOTE
The pin assignments for the V2406A computer’s Ethernet port are shown in the following figure. If you create
your own Ethernet cable, make sure that you match the pin assignments on the connector of the Ethernet

BIOS Setup
In this chapter, we describe the BIOS settings for the V2406A embedded computer. The BIOS is a set of
input/output control routines for peripherals. The BIOS is used to initialize basic peripherals and helps boot the
operating system before the operating system is loaded. The BIOS setup allows the user to modify the system
configurations of these basic input/output peripherals. All of the configurations are stored in the CMOS RAM,
which has a backup battery power in case the computer is not connected to a power source. Consequently, the
data stored in the CMOS RAM is retained when the system is rebooted or the power is disconnected.

Upgrading the BIOS
This section describes how to upgrade the BIOS.
WARNING
An improper BIOS upgrade process may permanently damage the computer. We strongly recommend that you
contact Moxa technical support for assistance to obtain all the necessary tools and the most up-to-date advice
before attempting to upgrade the BIOS on any Moxa device.
Step 1: Create a Bootable USB Disk
Before upgrading the BIOS, every user should first create a bootable USB drive as a system rescue device.
A useful software suite for creating USB RAM drives can be found by searching for Rufus, which can then be
downloaded and used to create a bootable RAM drive.
Complete the following steps to create a bootable USB disk using Rufus:
1. Start Rufus and then in the “Device” drop-down list
select the USB device that you want to use as a
bootable disk.
2. Select MBR partition scheme for BIOS or UEFI
computers from the “Partition scheme and target
system type” drop-down list so it can boot from a
legacy BIOS or UEFI.
3. Select FAT32 (Default) from the “File system”
drop-down list.
4. Select 4096 bytes (Default) from the “Cluster size”
drop-down list.
5. Enter a drive name in the “New volume label” input
box.
6. Select the Quick format, Create a bootable disk
using FreeDOS, and Create extended label and
icon files options.
7. Click Start to format and create the bootable USB
drive.
ATTENTION
When you use a USB drive larger than 4 GB, you will need to convert the file system type to FAT32.
Step 2: Prepare the Upgrade File
You must use the BIOS upgrade installation file to upgrade the BIOS. Contact Moxa technical support for
assistance.
1. Get the BIOS upgrade installation file.
The file name should be in the format: 24AxxSxx.exe (where “xx” refers to the version numbers).
2. Copy the file to the bootable USB drive.
