Tops CCC Products Co., Ltd. is providing new ways of connecting legacy serial devices to a Local Area Network (LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN). TCP/IP converters are designed to operate serial ports over 10/100M Ethernet networks. The data is transmitted via TCP/IP protocol. Therefore control is available via Ethernet, Intranet and Internet. TCP/IP converters are packaged in a plastic case well suited for industrial environments. All serial ports operate in common RS-232 mode , industrial RS-422 and RS-485 modes configuration. TCP/IP converter series is a low-cost, high performance design. By careful selecting high quality with competitive prices components in the world, EX-9132 product made network connectivity possible with affordable cost for virtually all kinds of devices. The 8051 Series of TCP/IP converters consists of 2 models: EX-9132 (1 port for RS-232/422/485) is a ready set product and the other EX-9132-M (1 port for RS-232/422/485) is a module product for developing purpose by customers. This operation manual will guide you step by step for the various functions of the TCP/IP converter. The following topics are covered in this chapter: □ □ Overview □ □ Package Checklist □ □ Block Diagram □ □ Product Features □ □ Product Specifications

In stead of processing TCP/IP packets directly.Block Diagram Low-cost devices usually are equipped with low speed processors and limited memories. they are neither having the capability nor practicality to manage complicated network TCP/IP protocols. In reality. which greatly simplifies the complexity of TCP/IP network in linkage. devices need only deal with those interface signals. 8051 Series is a low cost while providing high performance network solution by converting data stream between network TCP/IP and popular serial port signals.

Other similar issues. □ □ Broadcast packets can not pass routers. Even if the IP address of the converters and the computer running ExpertDAQETM do not belong to the same subnet. Thus if there are more than one converter on the network. it still works fine. you may reference to Q&A in Appendix A. ExpertDAQETM can only be used to monitor devices with computer running ExpertDAQETM in the same segment of local area network ExpertDAQETM Setup Tool is It uses UDP broadcast packets to 17 .

. The converter will save all parameters into internal non-volatile memory and then reboot (see Figure 3.Controller Updated Press “Update” Button After you finish the detailed parameter setting. you can close the browser now. If everything is ok. the login page won’t appear unless the converter’s “Gateway Address” has been correctly set. It takes about 5 seconds to complete the whole process. and a new login page will be presented (see Figure 3.1). 29 . (Figure 3. Note : If the domain of the converter is different from that of the computer running the browser.8) You can re-login and check if all parameters have been correctly saved.8).

there are two ways to reset the setting and the following procedures can be used to reset all settings to factory default: A: 1.Factory Default Setting If by chance. 30 . Turn on the power of the converter and wait 5 seconds. 3. 4. 2. Use a pin or any point tip to push the screw driver or any conductor to short DTR and CTS (pin 4 and pin 8 in DB9) of RS232 connector. you can turn off the power and then use any point tip to push “Reset” button and hold it to turn on the power at the same time for 5 seconds. The password will be reset to the factory default. or have incorrect settings making the converter inoperable. Remove screwed driver or conductor. Turn off the power of the converter. B: 1. you forget the setup password.
