Overview

This document outlines the steps required to program a MR-51e module to obtain an IP address via Public DHCP (assigned by standard DHCP server), Static (manually assigned), or MSC-DHCP (assigned by EP/LP SCP). The included utility MSC MR51e Address Configuration Tool is only used when assigning a static IP Address
Access It! Universal.NET 3.0 or higher must be installed
The MR-51e must be running firmware revision 1.4.2 or higher.
The EP/LP controller must be running firmware revision 1.147 or higher.

Public DHCP

The EP/LP controller must be configured to use DHCP to obtain an IP address.

  1. Set S1 - Configuration DIP Switch DIP 1 ON
  2. Set S1 - Configuration DIP Switch DIPs 2, 3, & 4 OFF
  3. Apply power to the MR-51e or press S2 - Reset Switch
  4. Make note of the MAC address located on the side of the RJ-45 jack
  5. Run Access It! Universal.NET
  6. From the File Menu, select Go | Main | Hardware
  7. Click the plus sign (+) to expand SCPs
  8. Click the plus sign (+) to expand the SCP the MR-51e will be installed on
  9. Select the SIOs branch, not the plus sign (+)
  10. A list of all available SIOs appear in the pane to the right of the hardware tree
  11. Edit the first uninstalled SIO from the right hand pane
    General Tab
    Model: MR-51E
    Device Installed: X
    IP Address: <NOT USED>
    MAC Address: < MAC Address of MR-51e>
    Click Save
    If unable to resolve the Host Name to an IP Address, contact your local network administrator.

Static

  1. Set S1 - Configuration DIP Switch DIPs 1 & 2 ON
  2. Set S1 - Configuration DIP Switch DIPs 3 & 4 OFF
  3. Open the included utility MR51e Address Configuration Tool

    Once detected, the MR-51e will auto populate in the Devices in Programming Mode window
  5. Select the MR-51e to be programmed
  6. Static IP Address: Full 12 digit IP address of MR-51e
    If the desired IP address of the MR-51e is to be 192.168.1.15, then the IP address field must be entered as 192.168.001.015.
    Subnet Mask: Subnet Mask
    Default Gateway: Full 12 digit Gateway IP Address
  7. Click Assign Static Address~If assigned properly, the checkbox Address Assigned will be checked.
