11 Page 11/ Wallboard Connections Connections are made to the back panel of the wallboard. The Ethernet cable from the HUB is connected to the RJ45 Ethernet plug directly. V24 and current-loop serial connections are made to the plug-in connector. 2x16 wallboards in cascade are linked in current loop behind the first wallboard connected to the Ethernet or V24. The distance between the first and last wallboards can not exceed 500m Main supply Ethernet plug V24/Current Loop Connection Ethernet Connections Use the crossed Ethernet cable when the wallboard is connected to a PC directly. To comply with EMC rules, the cable type must be FTP or STP V24 Connections Pin 1 : SG Pin 2 : TD To comply with EMC rules, the cable must be shielded. The shield must be connected to pin 1.

Before the normal operating mode, there is an identification stage followed by a self-test. In the identification stage, the first line shows the wallboard software version. In IP operating mode, the second line shows the wallboard IP address. The self-test activates every wallboard dot, line after line, in both basic colors: red and green. This allows visually checking that every wallboard dot works properly. 6.3 IP Setting Management IP setting management only applies if the wallboard is set up in IP mode (see configuration). IP settings can be accessed from a PC. A Web browser can be used to connect to the wallboard s IP address. At power on, the wallboard s IP address is displayed in the second line First Commissioning Follow the procedure below: 1. Remove all micro-switchs from the wallboard and turn it back on. 2. Connect the wallboard to the PC directly, using the crossed Ethernet cable as supplied. Crossed Ethernet Wallboard 3. Change the PC network settings to an IP address compatible with the wallboard s IP address, e.g if the wallboard is set to its default address
15 Page 15/18 Windows 98 example - Change network neighborhood properties: > Windows NT example: > 4. With a Web browser, connect to the wallboard s IP address ( for the default address) to open the wallboard s setup page.
16 Page 16/18 5. Enter the new settings and validate. To apply the new settings, the wallboard will be reset a few seconds after validation. Internet Explorer example: Address : Wallboard address (default: 0). Baud rate : Output rate of the serial connection (default: 9,600). Buzzer duration : Duration of the buzzer in seconds (default: 3). IP address : IP address (default: ). Net mask : Sub-network mask (default: ). Gateway : Gateway address. To be filled in to access the settings from another network (default: blank).
17 Page 17/ Setting Change To change the settings of a wallboard in operation, proceed as follows: 1. Make sure that micro-switch SW5 is Off (read-only). 2. Use a PC connected to the same network as the wallboard. Wallboard 10Mbit Ethernet 3. Using a Web browser, connect to the wallboard s IP address. 4. Change the settings. Entering new settings causes the wallboard to be reset a few seconds after validation. 5. Switch on SW5 to prevent settings from being changed.
18 Page 18/18 7. TROUBLESHOOTING This section will be extended as issues are found and solutions provided. Please feel free to give us your feedback. Ethernet Connection: Can not communicate with the wallboard Cause Solution The Web browser goes through a proxy server to connect to the Internet. In the browser settings, remove the proxy server or specify that the proxy server should not be used to connect to the wallboard s IP address. Cause Solution Error in the sub-network mask or gateway address. Turn the wallboard off, install micro-switch SW4, turn the wallboard back on, and remove micro-switch SW4. This allows resetting the wallboard to its default parameters (IP Address: ). Then, follow the first commissioning instructions. Micro-switch SW4 can be accessed through an opening in the wallboard s back panel, as shown below.
