MPPI QUICK START GUIDE

MPPI QUICK START GUIDE

1 Unpacking your MPPI

chassis/xx + SOM/E + instrument modules

 

All modules should arrive connected and
properly configured

 

 

 

 

2 Connecting power

Universal 120 VAC / 220 VAC power
cord

 

Power to the MPPI can be connected directly to the AC mains.

In chassis/28HP and chassis/42HP, alternatively, a DC power input can be used to increase the noise performance of the MPPI (linear power supply or battery at 6 VDC).

Power input is automatically detected, so if the DC power input is connected, it will become the primary power source of the MPPI.

 

 

 

3 Connecting the communication port to your SOM/E

USB (virtual IP) or Ethernet connection

Your MPPI has two communication ports:

– Ethernet port. Configured as DHCP ( factory default
settings).

– USB Type B port. MPPI does not use a Serial COM driver
but a virtual IP driver (“see” your MPPI as a local IP).

 

Your MPPI has three connections methods:

– Direct Ethernet connection. You can directly connect a Ethernet cable to your computer.

– Network connection. You can access your MPPI if both the MPPI and your PC are in the same local network.

– USB connection. Direct USB connection.
