Setting up Ethernet communications using the display

The Ethernet setup screen allows you to assign the meter a unique IP address so you can use software to access the meter’s data or configure the meter remotely through the Ethernet port.

Before configuring the Ethernet parameters, make sure you obtain your meter’s IP address information from your network administrator or IT department.

    Description

    IP Method Stored, Default, DHCP, BOOTP

    This controls the network protocol for your device (what the meter uses to obtain its IP address).

    Stored: Use the static value programmed in the IP Address setup register

    Default: Use 169.254 as the first two values of the IP address, then convert the last two hexadecimal values of the MAC address to decimal and use this as the last two values of the IP address. Example:

    MAC address = 00:80:67:82:B8:C8

    Default IP = 169.254.184.200

    DHCP: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

    BOOTP: Bootstrap Protocol
