Intech Micro Remote Station Programmer Software
This software supports the programming of stations via COM/USB ports or Ethernet TCP/IP network, along with SD Memory Data Logging on the 2400-A16-SD-NET.
Intech Micro Remote Stations supported:
- Installation requires the user to be an administrator.
- Desktop shortcut icon will only be installed to the currently logged on user.
If using via the XU-USB programming key (2400-A16 stations, USB programming port):
- Ensure that the Station Programmer software is installed before plugging in the XU-USB as this ensures that the required Windows USB driver is installed first.
- When upgrading from a previous software version – please disconnect the XU-USB before installing.
- Plug in the XU-USB to the computer (Standard size USB port), then the 2400-A16 station. Then power up (ensure that the voltage level matches the 2400-A16 stations’ label), the 2400-A16 station.
- In the Station Programmer software, click on the ‘Serial Connection – COM/USB’ tab, then click the ‘Auto Detect 2400 Station’ button.
- Note: 2400-A16 stations can also be programmed via one of their Comms ports.
- 2400-A16-NET stations: The XPort® Ethernet converter settings must be programmed via the Ethernet TCP/IP port – see below.
If using via Network (Ethernet TCP/IP) -NET stations and Z-2400-TCP:
- Connect the 2400-A16-NET, 2100-A16-NET, 2100-NET or Z-2400-TCP to the Ethernet TCP/IP network using a standard Ethernet (Cat 5/5e/6) cable. On the 2400-A16-NET, only plug the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet Comm Port 1 (do NOT plug into the 2400-R2 port).
- In the Station Programmer software click on the ‘Network Connection – Ethernet’ tab.
- You will need to allow the Station Programmer software access through the Windows Firewall in order to find the XPort® Ethernet converter and set the IP address etc. When the Windows Security Alert window appears, click ‘Allow access’.
- Factory set IP address = 192.168.1.100
- Factory set Port = 10001
- This software is to be installed and/or setup by the Installer with Network IT support staff. Please note that Intech will not be able to help with the setup and operation of an Ethernet TCP/IP network and assigning of IP addresses. As part of commissioning, IT support staff should assign a static IP address to each 2400-A16-NET, 2100-A16-NET, 2100-NET or Z-2400-TCP. The 2400-A16-NET, 2100-A16-NET, 2100-NET or Z-2400-TCP should be listed as part of the Ethernet system for support by the IT support staff. It is considered good practice to write the assigned IP address/port numbers onto a label and attach to the unit for easy future reference.
If programming the 2100-A16 or 2100-A16-NET for Modbus applications:
- Leave the 2100-A16 or 2100-A16-NET in MicroScan ASCII mode (factory default). Once all channels etc are programmed, follow the steps to change over to Modbus mode.
- Note: The 2400-A16 and 2400-A16-NET will auto-detect Modbus operation.
If using SD memory data logging with the 2400-A16-SD-NET:
- Configure the 2400-A16-SD-NET Input Ranges etc as usual.
- Configure the SD recording parameters.
- Configure the Pages & Lines for all Inputs being used.
- Initialise SD card if more than one computer is used for download.
- Note: Using serial comms to manually download data is very slow, and is not recommended.
WARNING: Ensure that all programming is carried out BEFORE any wiring takes place!
