Getting Started with EcoStruxure Panel Server Webpages

Overview

EcoStruxure Panel Server manages webpages to configure settings or monitor wireless devices (depending on the model), wired devices (through Modbus-SL or Modbus TCP/IP), and local digital inputs with the Panel Server Universal PAS600L, PAS600LWD, and Advanced PAS800L .

Recommended Web Browsers

The Panel Server webpages are accessible from a PC with Windows operating system.

To access the Panel Server webpages, the web browser Google Chrome v65.0 or higher is recommended.

Security Certificate

The Panel Server has a self-signed security certificate. A security message appears on the web browser when connecting to the Panel Server . Before accepting and continuing, check that communication with the Panel Server has been established either by directly connecting your PC to the Panel Server or making sure that your network is free of any rogue devices.

Discovering Panel Server on a PC

The Panel Server supports Device Profile for Web Service (DPWS) that allows self-discovery of the Panel Server .

To discover the Panel Server through your PC for the first time, proceed as follows:

  1. Disconnect the PC from the local area network (LAN) and switch off Wi-Fi, if any.

  2. Connect an Ethernet cable from the PC to the Panel Server (see Connection to Ethernet).

  3. On the PC, launch the File Explorer (Windows file manager application) and click Network.

  4. Wait until the EcoStruxure Panel Server icon displays in the list of devices in the network. It may take up to 2 minutes after the Panel Server is powered on.

    Result: The EcoStruxure Panel Server icon that displays under Network is as follows:

  5. Double-click the EcoStruxure Panel Server icon.

    Result: The Panel Server webpages open.

  6. If the Panel Server is not displayed under Network:

    1. Perform the following checks:

      • Check that the Panel Server and the PC are connected to the same sub-network.

      • If the Panel Server uses a static IP, check that the PC uses a static IP in the same network (same Subnet mask).

      • If the Panel Server IPV4 is in DHCP mode (default setting), set DHCP mode on your PC:

        • Access the Windows control panel of your PC.

        • Click Network and Sharing Center.

        • Click Change adapter settings.

        • Right-click the Local Area Connection icon then click Properties.

        • Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) from the list and click Properties.

        • Select Obtain an IP address automatically and click OK.

    2. Go to step 1 and do the procedure again.

    3. If the Panel Server is still not displayed under Network, see Troubleshooting.

Troubleshooting

If the Panel Server is still not displayed under Network, follow the procedure below that describes how to convert the hexadecimal value of the Panel Server MAC address to the decimal value to get the Panel Server IP address.

The Panel Server IPv4 address is a generic address, for example 169.254.X.Y , where X and Y correspond to the last 2 bytes of the Panel Server MAC address. The Y value is dependent on the configuration of the Ethernet switch.

You need to convert the hexadecimal value of the MAC address to a decimal value to get the Panel Server IP address.

  1. Proceed as follows to convert the hexadecimal value of the MAC address (printed on the Panel Server front face nose) to the decimal value to get the IP address:

    • Serial number starting with 54-21-44 or lower

      If...

      Then...

      Example with MAC address 00-00-54-01-07-70

      The Panel Server is in Ethernet switch mode (default setting).

      Y is equal to the last digits of the Panel Server MAC address converted into decimal value + 1.

      Hexadecimal 70 converted to decimal is 112.

      Y = 112 + 1 = 113

      Therefore IPV4 address will be 169.254.7.113.

      The Panel Server is in Ethernet separated mode and the PC is connected to Panel Server ETH1 port.

      The Panel Server is in Ethernet separated mode and the PC is connected to Panel Server ETH2 port.

      Y is equal to the last digits of the Panel Server MAC address converted into decimal value + 2.

      Hexadecimal 70 converted to decimal is 112.

      Y = 112 + 2 = 114

      Therefore IPV4 address will be 169.254.7.114.

    • Serial number starting with 54-21-45 or higher

      If...

      Then...

      Example with MAC address 00-00-54-02-07-10

      The Panel Server is in Ethernet switch mode (default setting).

      Y is equal to the last digits of the Panel Server MAC address converted into decimal value.

      Hexadecimal 10 converted to decimal is 16.

      Therefore IPV4 address will be 169.254.7.16.

      The EcoStruxure Panel Server is in Ethernet separated mode and the PC is connected to Panel Server ETH1 port.

      The Panel Server is in Ethernet separated mode and the PC is connected to Panel Server ETH2 port.

      Y is equal to the last digits of the Panel Server MAC address converted into decimal value + 1.

      Hexadecimal 10 converted to decimal is 16.

      Y = 16 + 1 = 17

      Therefore IPV4 address will be 169.254.7.17.

  2. Launch one of the recommended web browser on your PC.

  3. In the address field, type the IPv4 address starting with https:// and press Enter to access the login page https://169.254.XX.YY.

    IMPORTANT: Start the IPv4 address with https://.
  4. At the first connection, change the default password (see Password Requirements).

  5. At the first connection, check the Panel Server firmware version:

    1. From the Panel Server webpages, select Maintenance > Firmware update > Firmware update and take note of the firmware version.

    2. Compare the firmware version with the one available in your Schneider Electric country website.

    3. Update the Panel Server firmware if it is not in the latest version (see details to update firmware).

NOTE: If you do not remember the IP configuration of your gateway or in case of duplicate IP detection, follow the procedure above to connect to the Panel Server webpages to recover or update the network configuration.
