  • How do I setup an over height switch utilizing a Moxa Ethernet I/O?

Environment

  • Product: Vanguard
  • Components: VFC, DMP5050, DMP8050
  • Control System: Local control/Vanguard

Answer/Steps

Upload the correct firmware to the controller

  1. Upload the newest player (DMP) firmware to the controller.
  2. Upload the I/O Service Firmware to the controller.  This firmware can be found HERE.  Upload just as you normally would load DMP firmware.

Configure the ETHERNET I/O

Option 1: Configuring the I/O locally on the VFC or through the NTCIP interface of the DMP

  1. Log into the NTCIP page of the DMP, or into the VFC locally.
  2. Select SHARED
  3. ETHERNET I/O
  4. CHANGE DEVICE
  5. MOXA IOLOGIK E1212
  6. Cancel back to the previous menu and select IP ADDRESS.
  7. Enter the IP address of the I/O.  (Default: 192.168.127.254) NOTE: Depending on the network the IP addresses may have to be within the same subnet.  The controllers IP and the IO IP can be changed within their respective web interfaces. (controllers IP address needs to be similar to the I/O)
  8. Cancel back from the previous menu and select PORT
  9. Enter the I/O port.  (Default: 502)
  10. Cancel back from the previous menu and select ENABLE
  11. Select ENABLE

Option 2: Configure the I/O through the webpage interface.

  1. Go to: http://controllerIP/io/config.html (Replace controlerIP with the IP of the controller.)
  2. Fill out the correct information and hit save.  Below is an example of a controller setup to talk to an I/O with default settings.
