Engineering Panel Common Use Case: Change BCU IP

  • HINT: In case of SwitchBCU o SlaveBCU, the better choice is to remove the minicrate from the ASM power supply monitor and connect it to an external power source. The ethernet cable can be directly attached to the BCU.

  • Start Engineering Panel and configure it. Connect to the BCU
  • From the drop-down menu select "Set BCU IP Address"
  • Write the MAC address of the BCU and push Set the new IP button. *NOTE that only in this case you will not receive any reply!!!
