Hardware Introduction
Real Time Clock
The embedded computer’s real-time clock is powered by a lithium battery. We strongly recommend that you
NOT replace the lithium battery on your own. If the battery needs to be changed, contact the Moxa RMA
service team at http://www.moxa.com/rma/about_rma.aspx.
ATTENTION
There is a risk of explosion if the wrong type of battery is used. To avoid this potential danger, always be sure
to use the correct type of battery. Contact the Moxa RMA service team if you need to replace your battery.
Caution
There is a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Dispose of used batteries according
to the instructions on the battery.

MC-5150-DC-CP
Hardware Connection Description
Installing the MC-5150-DC-CP
Wall or Cabinet Mounting
The MC-5150-DC-CP has been pre-installed with two brackets on both ends of the computer. Use two screws
per side to attach the MC-5150-DC-CP to a wall or cabinet.
Use two screws for each bracket and attach the bracket to the rear of the MC-5150-DC-CP.
Wiring Requirements
This section describes how to connect serial devices to the embedded computer.
You should 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 MC-5150-DC-CP.
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.

MC-5150-DC-CP
Hardware Connection Description
Connecting the Power
The MC-5150-DC-CP model offers 24 VDC power input (with tolerance from 18 to 30 VDC) with the terminal
block. If the power is supplied properly, the Power LED will light up.
For safety reasons, please use cables with the following specifications:
Wire range 14-22 AWG, torque 7 lb
Grounding the MC-5150-DC-CP
Grounding and write 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 to a well-grounded mounting surface, such as a metal panel.
EG: See the figure for the location of the Earth Ground on the terminal block
power connector. Connect the EG wire to an appropriate grounded metal
surface.
Connecting Data Transmission Cables
This section describes how to connect the MC-5150-DC-CP computer to the network and serial devices.
Connecting to the Network
Plug your network cable into the embedded computer’s Ethernet port. The other end of the cable should be
plugged into your Ethernet network. 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 port uses 8-pin RJ45 connectors. The following diagram shows the
pinouts for these ports.

BIOS Setup
This chapter describes the BIOS settings of the MC-5150-DC-CP 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 will be stored in the battery

Upgrading the BIOS
This section describes how to upgrade the BIOS. However, please note that upgrading the BIOS involves high
risk of damage to your computer. We strongly recommend that you contact Moxa’s TS staff for assistance and
obtain all necessary tools and files before attempting to upgrade.
Step 1: Create a Bootable USB Disk
We suggest you use the HP USB Disk Format Tool to create a bootable USB disk. You may download this tool
from the Internet. Search the Internet using the phrase “HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool”, and then
download the tool from one of the listed websites.
You will also need to download the FreeDos system files kernel.sys and command.com from
http://www.freedos.org/kernel/.
1. Copy DOS system files kernel.sys and command.com to a specified directory (C:\FreeDOS in this
example).
2. Start the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool and select the USB device that you want to use as a bootable
disk in the Device drop down box.
3. Select FAT in the File system drop down box.
4. Type the disk name in the Volume label field.
5. Check the option Create a DOS startup disk under format options.
6. Specify the directory of the system files (for example, C:\FreeDOS).
7. Click Start to format and create the USB disk.
4-16
MC-5150-DC-CP
BIOS Setup
ATTENTION
We suggest you use a USB drive with under 2 GB in disk space, as larger USB drives may not support FAT file
format and consequently fail to boot.
Step 2: Prepare the Upgrade File
You must use the BIOS upgrade installation file to upgrade the BIOS. Contact Moxa’s technical department for
assistance.
1. Get the BIOS upgrade installation file. The file name should have following format: MC51xxSxx.exe (xx
refers to version numbers).
2. Copy the file to the Bootable USB Disk.
Step 3: Run the upgrade program on theMC-5150-DC-CP Computer
1. Reboot the computer, press F12 while booting up to go to the Boot Manager
2. Select USB Disk as the first boot source. Press Enter to continue.
3. When boot up finishes, DOS screen will show up. Go to the directory where the upgrade file is located. For
example, if the upgrade file is stored in the MC_5150 folder, type cd MC_5150
C:\cd MC_5150
4. Run the upgrade program by typing MC5150S03.exe. Please note that the upgrade filename may vary
depending on the versions.
C:\ MC_5150>MC5150S03.exe

5. The upgrade program will be automatically performed. Please wait until the procedure to be finished.
6. When the upgrade is finished, the computer will automatically reboot. You may check the BIOS version in
Main page of the BIOS Setup
ATTENTION
Do NOT switch off the power supply during the BIOS upgrade, since doing so may cause the system to crash.
