Notes on Test Setup in AuScope Control Room
Software installed on windows PC (ops1) in control room
From the Resource DVD:
RTMC web server (started installing after PC200W automatically!)
SCWin (aka Short Cut)
Device Configuration Utility
SMS (Storage module software)
RTMC Pro 4.0 Trial
RTMC Web Server 3.2 Trial (not sure if this was already done or not)
RTDAQ 1.0 Trial (selected trial when asked for serial number)
From the LoggerNet CD
Installed the software (key printed on CD)
Ran LoggerNet and started through setup wizard
Selected CR1000, named it Array 1
Selected IP Port as Communication Setup
Now need to give it an IP address…
Will configure over serial connection
USB to serial connector required driver from manufacturer:
Manual at at
Want driver for SBT-USC6K from
Followed installation instructions
Came up on COM3, 9600 baud, 8 bit, parity none, stop bits 1, flow control none.
Connected power to logger via DC power-pack. No luck. Direct connection to battery works
MAC address for Array 1 00d02c04b057, Array 2 00d02c04b051 and temporary IP addresses are 188.8.131.52 and .93 respectively and called AUScope-Array1.phys… and AUScope-Array2.phys…
In Device Config Utility,
Connection over serial with ethernet plugged in, shown DHCP working and TCP port set to 6785
In Datalogger tab, Station name is Array1, PakBus Address 1, security code 0
edited .cipasswd file (New Services Tab) to give usual observer password for admin,
password for anonymous is the same
In logger Control, hit Set clock (synchs with PC clock, so that needs to be on an NTP server)
In data monitor, can see logged data (after plugging in sensors), other stats like batther level etc.
Finished, so disconnect.
Now in EZSetup Wizzard
IP address set to 184.108.40.206:6785, pakbus 1, security code 0
Comm test worked!
Configured Array2 as above, just different name and I address, PakBus Address 1 (tried 2 but failed the comms test).
