Application for the IP Watcher

Switch digital output when alarm occurs

If a configured IP address can no longer be pinged, one of the device’s own digital outputs should switch and remain active until the ping has been replied to. Activating a connected actuator reports the alarm.

  • Easy Start
    Once the IP-Watcher has been configured for your network and connected, the following steps are necessary:
    Step 1
  • Enter the IP address of the device in the address line of your browser.

    Show the configuration menu.

    Select menu point Config and log in.

    Step 2
  • Go to the page

    Config >> Device >> Basic Settings >> Network

    and enter any missing network parameters.

    Step 3
  • On the page

    Config >> Device >> IP Watch List

    add the IP address you want to monitor to the list.

    Step 4
  • Go to page

    Config >> Device >> Alarm >> Alarm X

    and configure the points: Alarm Enable, IP Watch List, Trigger Count, Polling Rate and Interval to specify the alarm condition.

    Optionally you can assign a name to the alarm, which is displayed on the watch pages.

    Step 5
  • Activate Output Switch enable and apply the changes by clicking on Save.

    On the Switch page specify the output you want to switch when an alarm occurs.

    Exit configuration mode using Logout and save all your changes.

    Step 6
  • Connect the necessary actuators to the output terminals of the device.
