Bellow is given shortcut for instructions how to connect the device DAEnetIP3-EX for first time to router with UTP cable. In the user's manual are shown the rest connection types.
- Connect DAEnetIP3 RJ45 port with UTP (doesn’t matter crossover or straight) cable.
- Connect PC with the other side of the UTP cable.
- Change the IP of the PC. It may be for example 192.168.0.1. (DAEnetIP3 is with 192.168.0.100).
- Supply DAEnetIP3 with power supply 12 VDC (the middle pin of DAEnetIP3 power jack is +12VDC). The power led (with red color) must be on.
- Open your browser (IE, Firefox, Opera) and type 192.168.0.100 in the address bar.
- Use admin for password.
- Open admin settings.
- Change the Eth IP address of DAEnetIP3. Make it to be in one network with your router and PC. For example if your router is with IP 192.168.0.1 and PC with 192.168.0.101, make DAEnetIP3 with 192.168.0.100. Eth mask must be 255.255.255.0 and Eth gateway 192.168.0.1 (router IP)
- Click “Save” button.
- Unplug the power supply.
- Disconnect the UTP cable from PC and connect it to the router.
- Supply again the DAEnetIP3
- Open browser and type 192.168.0.100.
- Now you may access the DAEnetIP3 controller with router via router from PC.
Please pay attention that:
- the middle pin of the power jack is +12VDC
- There is not protection against reverse voltage.
- We recommend to use power supply adaptor that outputs 12 VDC stabilized.
- Inproper power supply voltage will damage the device !
We recommend to use this 12VDC Power Supply Adaptor (SYS1357-2412) that may be found also in our store. Please contact with us if you have questions. We sell the adaptor with one of the AC plugs for: USA, UK, EU, AUS.
Note the Power adapter is not included in the sale, we just recommend to use it with the dvice!
It is sold separately. You may find it in our store!
The controller has many modes for its inputs/outputs and all of them can be configurated by the user. The controller allows for example analog/digital inputs to control digital outputs, digital outputs to be switched based on 2 events per day (using build in Real Time Clock), generating pulses, timers and so on. You can refer to the user manual for more info.
16 Digital Outputs (Port A)
DAEnetIP3 has 16 digital outputs port. This port is called Port A. Each output line has pull-down resistor 10 Kohm to GND. The low level is 0V. The high level is 3.3V. Each digital output channel may be adjusted independently to work in one of the 19 modes for example just by several clicks from the drop-down web lists.
8 Digital Inputs (Port B)
DAEnetIP3 has 8 digital inputs port. This port is called Port B. Each output line has pull-up resistor 10 Kohm to 3.3V. When the input is not connected, its state is high (1). The input can be monitored only, can control some PortA digital output by rising/falling edge or it can control even output from another DAEnetIP3 controller (Box-To-Box).
8 Analog Inputs (Port C)
DAEnetIP3 has 8 channel analog input port (8 x ADC). The reference voltage is 2.5VDC and each channel is with 10 bit resolution (1024). The port has digital filter for avoiding the interferences.
The input can be tracked only, can control some PortA digital output by crossing threshold or it can control even output from another DAEnetIP3 controller (Box-To-Box).The inputs can also be calibrated softwarely according your hardware application so they can be retreived directly in desirable units (C,V,m...).This is so called linearization.

How to access the ip controller
Virtual Serial Port (Virtual Com Port)
DAEnetIP3 and all devices that are based on it may be accessed/controlled via Virtual Serial Port. In other words the the device in this sale may be accessed via COM Port RS232 commands from your computer because it will apear as COM Port:
DAEnetIP3-Ex appears as VSP (COM Port) on your PC
It may be accessed with any Serial Terminal (for exaple HyperTerminal)
The only thing the user has to do is to send and receive commands via the COM Port. All the TCP/IP commnucation is done by the driver.
There is not matter if your DAEnetIP3 device is connected to your PC over LAN cable or Wireless Wi-Fi network, it will appear as VSP (COM Port) on your PC. You need to set only the proper IP, Port and COM Port Name.
Example commands and responses that are sent/received via the DAEnetIP3 VSP (COM Port). The serial address of DAEnetIP3 is 00.
- Get Digital Input 1 level (Din1), counting in the commands is zero based:
Receive: 00BV0=0; //The level is low
- Get Analog Input 1 level (Ain1), counting in the commands is zero based:
- Set Digital Output 12 (Do12) in High level, counting in the commands is zero based:
- Get the Ethernet IP address of the module.
All the commands are described in the user manual DAEnetIP3_UM.pdf
The page below the text shows the page for the analog inputs. Their states are automaticaly refreshed each 2-3 seconds. The user doesn't have to click refresh button each time but just tracks the I/O changing values almost in real time (Ajax).
DAEnetIP3 controller has possibility for access via TCP/IP socket. The user may connect with custom software to port (default is 1010) that is defined for socket based TCP/IP communication.
The protocol is not based on some standart, but it is developed especially for the DAEnetIP3 controller. The full description of the protocol may be found in the user manual. It is fully ASCII (strings).
The reason for creating such communiation way is that TCP/IP sockets are widely used in all programing languages.In this way you may create software for DAEnetIP3 without learning difficult and heavy protocols.
The controller supports RC4 encryption/decription for the TCP/IP socket comunication. This is security measure that gives you basic protection.
Another security option is IP address protection, that allows only one IP to access the DAEnetIP3 via Web, Socket and Telnet.
Set Digital Output 1 in Low state
Get Analog input 1 value
HTTP API commands
Bellow are shown example commands. Please note that there is HTTP API password (by default it is admin) to prevent unauthorized access.
send: (get the whole PortA status of DAEnetIP3)
(send several commands at a time)
DAEnetIP3 can be easily accessed via Telnet. Simple password protection mechanizm is provided. Note that Telnet is not secure protocol, so it is recommend using only in secure networks.
On the figure right to the text is shown how DAEnetIP3 controller with IP address 192.168.1.50 is accessed via Telnet with Windows XP.
- Open command line and type: telnet "IP of the controller"
- Use the passowrd, in our case this is admin. After correct login the controller responds with welcome message.
- The first command is ASG=0000; - it sets all 16 DO in low level.
- CV0=?; gets the ADC channel 0 value. Its 415; It may be from 0 up to 1023.
- BVG=?; gets the eight digital inputs levels. Its 00, which means all inputs are in low level
- ASG=FFFF; Sets all the 16 DO in high level.
Ofcourse these commands are only small part. The full list may be found in the documentation.
Each DAEnetIP3 controller may be accessed via UART serial communication. The protocol is given in the documentation. This is provided in case you need RS485 network for example accessed only with one IP address. Each controller has serial address, that is given in each packet sent to the server bridge from user software.
The figure right to the text shows how 3 DAEnetIP3 controllers are connected in serial network using UART <-> RS485 convertors (not included in the sale). The serial network may be accessed over LAN or WAN with user TCP/IP socket based software.
