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.

  1. Navigate to Maint > Setup.
  2. Enter the setup passcode (default is “0”), then press OK.

    Values

    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 85.16 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 = 85.16.184.200

    DHCP: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

    BOOTP: Bootstrap Protocol

    IP Address Contact your local network administrator for parameter values. The Internet protocol address of your device.
    Subnet Contact your local network administrator for parameter values. The Ethernet IP subnetwork address of your network (subnet mask).
    Gateway Contact your local network administrator for parameter values. The Ethernet IP gateway address of your network.
    HTTP Server Enabled, Disabled Controls whether your device’s webserver and webpages are active or not.
    FTP Enabled, Disabled

    Allows you to enable or disable FTP

    (Auto-disables if idle for 20 minutes)**

    DPWS Enabled, Disabled Allows you to enable or disable DPWS
    EtherNet/IP Enabled, Disabled Allows you to enable or disable EtherNet/IP
    DNP3* Enabled, Disabled Allows you to enable or disable DNP3
    MAC 00:80:67:8A:F6:64 Displays the meter’s factory-programmed MAC address.This information is read-only and cannot be changed.
    Device Name (see description) This is the meter’s device name and is factory set to PM55-#xxx (where xxx is the serial number of the meter). This can be used as a DNS entry that maps the device name to the IP address assigned by the DHCP server.
    *Available in specific meter models. Refer to Features differentiation matrix for PM5500 / PM5600 / PM5700 series for the availability.

    **Refer to Restoration of temporarily disabled configuration settings in webpages to know availability of these features on your meter model.

    NOTE:

    An exclamation mark beside the IP address can indicate:

    • that the IP address is being programmed. Wait a few seconds for the IP address to appear to confirm that it is programmed.

    • that there is a problem with the network. Check with your system administrator for network issues.
