Procedure 2a: Configuring the Ethernet Interface with
Logicmaster 90-30 Configuration Software
Before you can use the Ethernet Interface with the Series 90-30 PLC, you must configure
the Interface using Logicmaster 90-30 configuration software or CIMPLICITY Con-
trol (see Procedure 2b for configuring using CIMPLICITY Control). The Logicmaster
90-30 configuration software allows you to specify the modules and I/O that will reside
in your Series 90-30 PLC rack(s). The Hand Held Programmer may not be used to con-
figure the Interface.
For the Ethernet Interface specifically, the configuration software allows you to:
Define the status address of the Ethernet Interface
Assign the IP Address for the Ethernet Interface, and optionally the Subnet Mask
and the Gateway Address.
Configure the serial ports (optional).
To configure the Ethernet Interface, access the I/O Configuration rack screen in the
Logicmaster 90-30 Configuration Package, and do the following:
1. Move the cursor to the desired rack and slot location. The slot may be either
unconfigured or previously configured.
2. Press the Communications softkey, i.e., Comm (F6). Your screen display will change
to the one shown on the following page.
