This document describes different ways to download an Information Designer project


to an EXTER operator terminal via Ethernet or via External memory.

About this Start Up Document

This Start Up document should not be considered as a complete manual. It is an aid to


be able to start up a normal application quickly and easily. For further information we
refer to the Information Designer reference manual (MAEN749C). This document
and other Start Up documents can be downloaded from www.beijerelectronics.com.

Downloading the Project via Ethernet

The most efficient way to download the project to the EXTER operator terminal is to
use the built-in Ethernet card. The operator terminal is configured with a default IP
address (192.168.1.1) at delivery, which can be changed if desired. The operator terminal can easily be programmed via Ethernet, by following the steps below.

Connection to the Built-in Ethernet Port

To program the operator terminal via Ethernet, an Ethernet connection is needed in


the PC, and also a hub or switch, or a crossover twisted pair cable.

If the PC is not equipped with a network interface card, or the card in the PC is
configured to be connected to an office network, CAB35 can be connected instead.
CAB35 is a USB to Ethernet adapter and appears as an extra network interface card in
the PC when connected.

Settings in the Operator Terminal

At delivery, the IP address of the operator terminal is displayed on the welcome page,
that is appears when power is connected to the operator terminal. To change the IP address from the welcome page, press Enter on a key terminal, or touch anywhere on the
display of a touch terminal.
It is also possible to change the IP address from the same menu in the operator terminal, even if it is already loaded with a project, by setting switch 1 at the rear side of the
operator terminal and then rebooting.
Select TCP/IP settings and enter the desired IP address and subnet mask. In this
example the following settings are made:
Parameter

Setting

IP address

192.168.1.1

Subnet mask

255.255.255.0

The first three groups of numbers in the IP address (192.168.1) is the network address,
and the last group (1) is the address of the operator terminal.

Check Send complete project and then click Send to transfer the project to the
operator terminal. The project will be saved and tested automatically.

A dialog is displayed, asking to which IP address to send the project. Make sure that
the IP address of the operator terminal is selected; if not, change it. Click OK.

The operator terminal automatically changes to transfer mode, and receives the project.

Downloading the Project via External


Memory

Another possibility when downloading the project to the EXTER operator terminal is
to use an external memory; a Compact Flash card or a USB memory stick. This can be
convenient for example when upgrading an existing project in an establishment where
no PC with Information Designer is available, or when bringing a PC is not possible.
Note:
The EXTER K30, EXTER T40, EXTER K60 and EXTER T60 operator terminals are not
equipped with a Compact Flash memory card slot, but a USB memory stick can be used.

4.1

Loading the External Memory with the Project

To be able to load the operator terminal with a project from an external memory, a
transfer file has to be created to be saved on the memory.
Connect the external memory to the PC.
Open the desired Information Designer project.
Select Transfer/Export Project Transfer File.

Select the external memory as destination of the transfer file, and click Save.

A .dat file is now created on the memory.


Connect the operator terminal to power, and the connect the external memory.
The memory is detected. If it is the first time to connect the external memory to an
operator terminal, a dialog will be displayed, asking if a structure is to be created on
the memory. Select Yes.
The project is now loaded in the operator terminal.
This procedure works on the operator terminal at delivery without any configuration.
The function can be turned off, if desired, by selecting Setup/Terminal Options in
Information Designer, and unchecking Load project automatically on detection.
