Setting Up the IzoT Router

You can set up an IzoT Router to communicate with devices, workstations, and other IzoT Routers on an Ethernet LonTalk/IP-LAN (IP-70) or IP-852 channel, and you can set up an IzoT Router to communicate with FT or RS-485 devices on an FT or RS-485 LON channels.

To set up an IzoT Router, follow these steps:

  1. To attach an IzoT Router FT to an FT LON channel, insert the two conductors of a LON FT network cable to into the left two screw terminals of the black LON terminal block on the right and tighten the screw terminals. In the following figure, the LON FT network cable is the bottom right cable. Do not connect anything to the right terminal of the connector on the right (the terminal with the red X).

  2. To attach an IzoT Router to an Ethernet LAN channel, insert one end of the Ethernet cable into the 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet connector next to the orange connector, and the other end into an Ethernet switch or hub connected to the same network as your computer. If you are using an Ethernet hub, you can only have one IzoT Router per hub. This limit does not apply if you are using an Ethernet switch.

  3. Connect the barrel connector of the included power supply into the Power connector for the IzoT Router. In the figure above, the Power cable is the top left cable. Connect the power supply to one of the included power cords, and plug the power cord into a power outlet. The IzoT Router is ready to use when the Status/Wink indicator turns solid blue.

  4. Find the IP address for your IzoT Router and assign a fixed address for your router as described in Determining the IzoT IP Address of Your IzoT Router.

  5. Configure the IzoT Router as described in Configuring the IzoT Router.

  6. To use the Device Browser, Test Page, and the example Web pages, configure the IzoT Server as described in Configuring the IzoT Server and open the IzoT Dashboard as described in Web Pages.

  7. To use the IzoT Router as a LonTalk/IP LON to LAN router, or as an IP-852 to IP-70 router, see Installing the IzoT Router in a Network.

  8. If you are installing multiple IzoT Routers in a network, see Installing Multiple IzoT Routers in a Network.
