Wiring Requirements

In this section, we describe how to connect serial devices to the V2426A embedded computer.

Be sure to 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 to all devices in the system.

ATTENTION

Safety First!

Be sure to disconnect the power cord before installing and/or wiring your V2426A.

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.

3-4

V2426A Hardware Hardware Connection Description

Connecting the Power

Connect the 12 to 48 VDC power line with M12 A-coded connector to the V2426A 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 V2426A 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 V2426A 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 cable.

BIOS Setup

In this chapter, we describe the BIOS settings for the V2426A 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.

2.

Get the BIOS upgrade installation file.

The file name should be in the format:

24AxxSxx.exe

(where “xx” refers to the version numbers).

Copy the file to the bootable USB drive.

A-16

V2426A Hardware Regulatory Approval Statement
