How to change the IP address of the Simotion controller

Note: You need a laptop with the Siemens STARTER software previously installed (Windows only!).

The software can be downloaded from: https://support.industry.siemens.com/cs/#document/26233208?lc=en-WW

Instructions

1) On the back of the ARGOS SX CRE rack:
  • Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the unit (a flat screwdriver is required to push the tab).

  • Connect a temporary Ethernet cable, long enough to reach the telescope floor.

2) Connect the Ethernet cable to the laptop. Check that a local network is detected.

3) Open the STARTER software.

4) Open "Project" -> "Accessible nodes" (or use button on toolbar).

5) In the new window, wait until the device is found (see screenshot). Then right-click on it and select "Edit Ethernet node".

6) In the new window, change the IP address to 192.168.26.32 (see screenshot).

7) Click "Assign IP configuration".

8) The following message should appear: "INFORMATION The parameters have been transferred successfully". (see screenshot)

9) Click "Close".

10) Click "Close" again.

11) Click "Update".

12) On the back of the ARGOS SX CRE rack:
  • Disconnect the temporary Ethernet cable from the unit (a flat screwdriver is required to push the tab).

  • Connect the legitimate Ethernet cable.

13) Check that the unit is accessible from DX-LALAS or SX-LALAS. (ping 192.168.26.32)

Done!
