You need to have: 1) A nanodac™ recorder/controller 2) EtherNet/IP option enabled in the nanodac™ Configuration of the EtherNet/IP protocol needs to be done via iTools. You can connect to the nanodac™ via two options: 1) Configuration clip (sold separately, P/N CPI101000000) 2) Ethernet port (RJ45, standard on nanodac™) Assuming these conditions are met, you can now proceed in the configuration the EtherNet/IP option in the nanodac™ 3 iTools Setting up nanodac™ for use in iTools (via Ethernet TCP/IP) Using the Ethernet port on the back of the nanodac™ is simple to use but you will need to add a TCP/IP port within iTools in order for it to recognize the nanodac. Simply go to your Control Panel, then click on the iTools icon. Click on the TCP/IP tab, then click Add… (1) Enter a name for your nanodac, (2) click on Add… to assign the IP address of the nanodac, and (3) click OK After completing, you can exit out of the configuration, now load iTools, and then click on “Scan” 4 Be sure to choose the first option; “Scan all device addresses (255 first, then 1 to 255)” After about 5-10 seconds, you will see the device pop up in the left hand side. The icon next to the name indicates its synchronizing. Once you see the “book” icon, this means it’s fully synchronized and you cannot fully edit the configuration. Be advised that the first time you connect the nanodac™ via iTools, it could take upwards of a minute to synchronize. 5 Navigation Click on “Parameter Explorer” Navigate to EtherNetIP on the left hand side On the right hand side of the screen, you should see all the parameters available to you: Blue color font indicates it is a read only parameter where black indicates it’s a read/write parameter. If you go into Access mode (default password is 100), more parameters will become available to you. 6 Parameter Explorer: ImplicitInputs and ImplicitOutputs are available for use when the nanodac™ is configured as a client or server, whereas InputTags and OutputTags are available only as a Client(tags). The nanodac™ does not support IOTags as a server! 7 Main Tab – Se
