MP200 /1 connectivity with Advant engineering station with PU410 board.
Trying to connect Advant engineering station with pu410 through MB300 - RJ45 port-1 at one side CAT5 cable and at MP200/1 side we have used AUI/UTP media converter ( Blackbox) installed on connection unit of DSTC 190 ( DSCS140 card) , CAT5 cable type used is cross.
Getting error msg on engineering station : " connect error - check connection with target system "
is this configuration correct ? kindly suggest, As we are planning to locate the advant engineering station 50 mtrs away from the mp200/1 system.
note that the engineering station is working by using TK624V150 Cable with CBA port on engineering station and other end connected to mp200 processor port directly
Is the blackbox unit a media converter or a Transceiver ? describe your connection with a drawing, For longer connection you need to have a network switch in between the PU410 and the MP200/1 DSTC190 connection unit. The attached short Yellow UTP cable is crossed and must be so for you connection between PU410 and the PC, (if no network switch is connected in between)..
I agree with Jan-Erik.
The MB300 connection on the MP200/1 side requires a transceiver with SQE (Heartbeat) enabled.
The MB300 connection on the PU410 side can be connected directly to a switch.
Theoretically, you can connect the AUI/TP transceiver on the MP200/1 side directly to the PU410 using a crossed Ethernet cable. Total CAT5 length must be considered. You can reach longer if you insert a switch in between (and then you should use stragiht Ethernet cables). A professional installation does not use too long copper cables due to the risk of electro magnetical interference and ground potential differences.
The PU410 <-> engineering computer connection should use a crossed Ethernet cable and a manual setting of 100 MBit/s FULL duplex (do NOT use auto-negotiate).
