4. Quick start

This chapter is a quick introduction to the RS232/485/422-ETH module. Users will have a systematic understanding of this module after learning the contents of this chapter. Please refer to other chapters for more details.

4.1 How to connect

4.1.1

The power supply of the module uses screw terminals. First, select the correct DC power supply whose working voltage and current are in accordance with the electrical parameters of the module. Then connect the positive and negative poles of the power supply to the + and-terminals of the module respectively, pay attention to the positive and negative power supply, do not connect the reverse. The module power supply has the function of anti-reverse connection to prevent the damage of the module caused by the positive and negative pole of the reverse connection power supply.

4.1.2 serial connection

There are three kinds of RS485/232/422 serial port signals in the module, among which RS232 adopts DB9 header, RS485/422 adopts screw terminal, and the connection is made according to the interface instruction in chapter 3.2. Attention should be paid to the data transmission and reception between the module and the equipment. When RS485 is connected to Modbus RTU slave station equipment, the bus form of hand-in-hand should be adopted.

4.1.3 internet connection

The RJ45 bus is used for the module network interface. The user needs to connect the Ethernet device with 10MBPS network cable (through the switch/router) . Today’s Ethernet devices basically support Ethernet port automatic jumper, you can directly use the network cable and Ethernet device connection.

If the Ethernet device connected to this module does not support automatic polarity switching, you will need to use cross wires, which are made as follows:

I. The T568A standard describes the order of lines from left to right:

1-green white (the outer layer of green has some white, which is the same group of lines as green)
2.-green
3-orange white (orange with some white on the outer layer, the same set of lines as orange)
4-.-blue
5–bluish white (blue with some white on the outer layer, the same set of lines as blue)
6-.-orange
7–brownish-white (the outer layer of brown has some white, which is the same set of lines as Brown)
8-.-brown

II. The T568B standard describes the order of lines from left to right:

1–orange white (orange with some white on the outer layer, the same set of lines as orange)
2–orange
3–green white (green with some white on the outer layer, and green is the same group of lines)
4–blue
5–bluish white (blue with some white on the outer layer, the same set of lines as blue)
6–green
7–brownish-white (the outer layer of brown has some white, which is the same set of lines as Brown)
8–brown

4.2 Ethernet to RS485 communication

Module RS485 supports Modbus TCP to Modbus RTU, Modbus RTU to TCP, TCP to RS485 transmission three communication modes, factory default communication mode.

Before MODUBS switch to Modbus RTU communication, the module RS485 interface should be connected to the serial port equipment RS485, and the module network interface should be connected to the Ethernet equipment through the network line (wiring reference section 4.1.2) to complete the hardware connection. Then log on to the module IP page and view or configure the module’s serial port parameters and IP (operations refer to Section 5.1.2) to ensure that the Ethernet device segment is consistent with the module and does not conflict with IP, and the communication parameters of the serial device are consistent with the module. The Modbus TCP message format is referred to in section 5.1.2.

For the other two modes of communication, it is first necessary to switch the mode through the web page configuration, and then to ensure that the device and module network parameters, serial port parameters match (refer to section 5.2.2 or section 5.6.2 for specific operations).

4.3 Ethernet to RS232/RS422 communication

This module can realize the transmission of TCP data between RS232/RS422 serial port equipment and Ethernet equipment. Before communication, the module RS232/RS422 interface should be connected with corresponding serial port equipment, and the module network interface with Ethernet equipment (connection reference section 4.1.2).

Then through the module IP page, ensure that the device and module serial port, network parameters match (specific Operation Reference Section 5.4.2 or section 5.5.2).
