This document describes and shows a basic example of changing a unit's IP address from the unit itself at runtime.
CR Series HMI / G3 Series HMI / G3 Kadet HMI / Graphite® HMI / Modular Controller (excludes LE) / DA Series Data Station (excludes DA10) / Data Station Plus (excludes LE) / ProducTVity Station
Changing a unit's IP address from the unit itself at runtime.
Crimson 3.0 or Crimson 3.1
Data Tags Section
1. Referring to Figure 1, create three new Numeric tags.
2. Rename the tags IP, Mask, and Gateway.
3. Referring to Figure 2, set the Storage setting on all three to Retentive.
4. Click on the Format tab.
5. Set the Format Type to IP Address as shown in Figure 3.
6. Repeat this step for the other two tags.
1. Navigate to the Communications Section.
2. Referring to Figure 4, click on Network and then Ethernet 1 (or Ethernet 2 depending on the application).
3. Set the Port Mode to Manual Configuration.
4. In the Resource Pane, click on Data Tags.
5. Referring to Figure 5, drag the previously created tags into the associated fields under Port Settings.
Display Pages Section
1. Navigate to the Display Pages section.
2. In the Resource Pane, click on Data Tags.
3. Referring to Figure 6, drag the three tags onto the page.
4. Set the Operation for each primitive to Data Entry, see Figure 7.
5. In the Resource Pane, click on Primitives, then Core Primitives.
6. Referring to Figure 8, drag a Bevel Button onto the page.
7. Open the button's properties and click on the Action tab.
8. Set the Operation to User Defined.
9. In the On Pressed Field type: CommitAndReset(), as shown in Figure 9, then click OK.
1. Enter the desired values into the Data Entry fields on the display page.
2. Once the values have been entered, press the button that was added in Step #6.
3. Once the unit has rebooted, the new values will be used.
NOTE: The Retentive Storage of the tags and the CommitAndReset() call are crucial, as the IP address is loaded when the unit boots, therefore the tag value must be present at startup.
NOTE: The GetNetIP, GetNetMask, and GetNetGate functions can be used to display the unit's current IP settings, the example attached below shows an example.
