2. Configuration:


[Configur
e the converter
]


1) Use RJ 45 cable to wire the PC hos
t with Windows OS and the converter directly



or via
network

switch or hub.


2) Run ezConfig
-
v5.0
-
pop.exe to enter configuration windows




3) Buttons definition:


Search
---
Search the converters on the net


Read
---

S
elect the designated converter, and read the parameters.


Write
---
Write the designated parameters to the converter.


Exit
---

Exit the window


4) Set the parameter or choose right option based on the real application, and

keep the


parameter for late reference. Keep the default parameter if no special specification


for the application.


5) The default IP address for the converter: 192.168.0.7


[
Mapping the virtual COM Port
]


1)

Install TIBBO software package on Wi
ndows OS

On VSP Manager Administration Panel, if no any virtual COM port available,

add virtual COM port

first
.


Just follow pop up window to add virtual port.





The software
will automatically identify and configure the virtual port.


3) On VSP Manager Administration Panel, choose the virtual port and click [Edit]
button to enter the mapping window.

4) Set the right parameter to map the IP address of the converter t
o the virtual COM


port of the host PC.



[POINTS] Select which COM port which the converter is designated to be.



Please choose TCP as transport protocol if for regular Ethernet


network.




Key in the IP address which should be exact same as the IP address


when configure the converter on ezConfig software.

(e.g. 192.168.1.7)




Please make sure the port which should be exact same as t
he port which


is set on ezConfig software.

(e.g. COM 3)



Check other parameters to meet the application or leave them as default

[
Testing the connection
]


1) Run elTest software to enter the test window





Check the module IP to make sure the IP address which should be exact same as


the IP address which has been set to the converter.
(e.g. 192.168.1.7)


Please also make sure the Port is correct.


3) For PC Local Port, the port number should be same as the

port which has been set


on ezConfig software

the column [Remote Port], default is 1234


4) To test the communication between the converter and the host, use jumpers to short

3.
Application
:


[Sample]


PC and TCP/IP
-

RS485/422 converter:


1) Use configure software to map th
e IP of converter to COM port of PC, like


COM 3

2) Connect PC and converter to LAN or WAN, then the converter become COM port

of PC, and the converter can put anywhere on the
network
, and works as COM port

of the PC


[Sample]


TCP/IP
-
RS485/422 conv
erter and TCP/IP
-
RS485/422 converter:


1) Use PC to configure two converters, Converter A and Converter B.

2) Set IP of Converter A to remote IP of Converter B

3) Set IP of Converter B to remote IP of Converter A

4) Connect Converter A and Converter B wit
h crossover RJ 45 cable, then the set
works as RS485/422 end to RS485/422 end cable.
