    Parameter Description

    MAC Address

    Displays the meter’s factory-programmed MAC address. This information is read-only and cannot be changed.

    IP Address Acquisition Mode

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

    • DHCP: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

      NOTE: Fully qualified domain names are not supported. The device name / MAC address* is not automatically sent to a DNS server when a DHCP request is sent. In order to use device name / MAC address* instead of IP address, your IT administrator must manually add the device name / MAC address* to the DNS.

    • BOOTp: Bootstrap Protocol

    • Stored: The static value you programmed in the IP Address setup register

    • Default: Uses 85.16 as the first two values of the IP address, then converts the last two hexadecimal values of the MAC address to decimal and uses this as the last two values of the IP address. Example: MAC address = 00:80:67:82:B8:C8, default IP =

    IP Address
