Configuring the Unit
When the power is connected to the IOLAN, the Power/Ready
LED will cycle through several sequences and will end in a
solid green once the unit is fully booted and ready to be
configured.
The CD_ROM provided with your IOLAN includes software
for configuring the unit. This software is designed for use on a
Windows Operating System. For other Operating Systems,
please refer to the IOLAN User’s Guide for methods of
configuring the IOLAN.
Plug the supplied AC power cord into the power source. Dual
power units will operate correctly with either or both power
supplies connected to a power source.
If the LED is not solid green after two minutes, refer to the
User’s Guide for help identifying the reason.
1. Insert the CD-ROM into the PC.
