INTRODUCTION
Many industrial and Commercial devices equipped with slow serial communication ports RS-232, RS-485,
and RS-422 are limited in their transmission distance of 15 m. Examples of these devices are PLC
controllers, card readers, display signs, security controls, CNC controller, etc. ATOP Technologies has
overcome the limit with a family of SE 5002 Series Ethernet Serial Servers. The SE 5002 sever family is
designed to transmit data between one-or-more serial device and one-or-more TCP/IP device through
Ethernet, and hence enhance the accessibility of the serial device through the ubiquitous TCP/IP based
Ethernet.
Of the SE series, the SE 5002 is for RS 232/RS 422/RS 485 without isolation protection built-in, while the SE
5002-S55is is for RS 422 and RS 485 devices built-in isolation protection.
1.1. Packaging
Check your package to make certain it contains the following items:
SE5002 /SE5002-S55is Ethernet Serial Device Server
Quick Installation Guide
Product CD
Wall-mounting screws
3-pin terminal block*1 for power input only for SE5002-S55is
5-pin terminal block with lock*2 only for SE5002-S55is
Optional Accessories:
1.
Power Adapter - DC Jack 12VDC,1.25A with Lock
2.
Din Rail Kit DK-25
1.2. Modes of Operation
The SE 5002 Series can be operated in one of the following 4 modes:
TCP Server Mode:SE5002 can be configured in a TCP server mode on an Ethernet Network to wait for the
host computer to establish a connection with the serial device ( the client). After the connection is established,
data can flow in both directions (Fig.1 TCP Server Mode).

User manual Version 1.1
ABLELink® Ethernet Serial Server SE5002
TCP Client Mode:SE5002 can be configured in a TCP client mode on a TCP/IP Network to actively
establish a connection with an applications server –the host computer. After the connection is established,
data can flow in both directions (Fig 2 TCP Client Mode).
Fig. 2. TCP Client Mode
UDP Mode:UDP is a fast but non-guaranteed datagram delivery protocol. SE5002 can be configured in a
UDP mode on a TCP/IP Network to establish a connection, using unicast or broadcast data to and from a
serial device to one or multiple host computers (Fig 3 UDP Mode).

User manual Version 1.1
ABLELink® Ethernet Serial Server SE5002
Tunneling Mode(Pair Connection):The tunneling mode is used for multiple serial devices to “talk” to each
other through SE 5002’s and their Ethernet connections (Fig 4 Tunneling Mode). This mode is particularly
useful when two serial devices are far away, because their communication distance is limited to 15 m.
Fig. 4. Tunneling Mode
1.3. Hardware Description
NOTE:
1. Model SE5002 is for RS-232/422/485 without isolation protection built-in; SE5002-S55is is for

3.3.7 Configuring SE5002 in UDP mode:
SE5002 can be configured on a UDP mode to establish connection using unicast or broadcast data from the
serial device to one or multiple host computer. Vice versa is also true.
There are 2 UDP communication Modes:
1.
Master (Client) Mode:To establish a connection using unicast or broadcast data from the serial device
to one or multiple host computer.
Note:The configuration is limited by Destination IP and Destination Port
Using broadcast data from a serial device to multiple host computers:For example, for destination IP
“10.255.255.255 “and destination port “4660”, the host computer’s IP addresses from
10.0.0.1~10.255.255.254 and listening Port at 666 can receive data sent from the serial device (Fig.
29)
Note:Broadcast IP address is limited by the Class of IP address and subnet mask. As an example, for
a network of Class C subnet 192.168.1.X and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0,,one may configure the
broadcast IP address to be 192.168.1.255 (Fig. 31)

3.4 Assigning new IP Address with ARP commands
ARP (address resolution protocol) commands can be used to assign a static IP address on SE5002 using
its hardware MAC (media access control) address. The MAC address"0060E9-xxxxxx" is printed on the rear
side of device . The following shows how it works on MS-DOS command prompt window.
Example: change IP from 10.0.50.100 to 10.0.50.101,and MAC address being 00-60-e9-11-11-01
Step1: Add the new host IP to the ARP table
Open Ms-DOS command prompt window
Input arp -s 10.0.50.101 00-60-E9-11-11-01(Fig. 33)
Fig. 33. Ms-DOS command prompt window: add host computer IP to ARP table
Step2: Change to the new IP via Telnet port 1(Fig. 34)
Input telnet 10.0.50.101 1
Note:Telnet will fail and then SE5002 restarts automatically. Afterward, the new IP address is changed to
10.0.50.101
Step3: Using the new IP to configure SE5002 via Telnet
Input telnet 10.0.50.101
Note:
1. Both PC's IP and SE5002 's IP must belong to the same subnet.
2. The changed IP address must be legal; otherwise it will change back to the default value (10.0.50.100)
after restart.
