When controlling a device over LAN we have a build in function that requires connection to all LAN device before you can start using the keypad.
By default it is the OFF button that flashes until connection to all units have been establish. If no OFF button is defined in the keypad then all buttons will flash.
The great thing is that after connection all deice have been done 1 time, the system will keep responding even if a connection is lost.
In order for the control system to communicate with the Lan device a few things need to be in place so here is a check list:
- Do the IP address entered in the Project Designer matching the IP address of the device.
- Is it the right port number entered in the Project Designer?
- Is the Control system and device in the same IP range?
- Are you using a network with DHCP or static IP adresses?
If using DHCP, make sure that you have entered the right IP address in Project Designer.
- Are there a IP conflict on the network?
- Is the device enabled for LAN control?
Some device have ether RS232 or LAN control, so make sure that you have selected LAN.
If you are in an test scenario where you want to bypass this simply change the connection type to UDP in the Project Designer.
If you want to permanent remove the LAN connection check see this article for instructions.
