ÀNetwork Port: An RJ45 Ethernet port for connection to
your TCP/IP network. When attempting to communicate
with the unit via network for the first time, note that the
CMS features a default IP address (192.168.168.168). This
allows you to connect to the unit without first defining an
IP address (providing that the unit is being contacted by
another node on the same subnet.) For more information
on configuring the Network Port, please refer to
Note: The CMS features a 10BaseT Interface.
When connecting the CMS to a 100BaseT interface,
note that most router switches will autosense to
determine if the device is 100BaseT or 10BaseT, and
then configure the network interface accordingly. If
your router switch does not autosense, the network
interface port must be manually set to 10BaseT.
ÁPower Cable Receptacle: Note that DC units include a
Terminal Block Assembly in place of the Power Cable
Receptacle. For more information on DC units, please
refer to Section 4.1.2.
