1. Introduction

The DA-60Ts controls offers the possibility of Network Connectivity as a standard feature. Once that it is enabled by means of the proper machine parameter, it is possible to make use of network functionalities,  like  storing  products  in  a  shared  folder  or  allowing  Remote  Assistance connections.


2. Configuration

Go to the Machine Parameters menu and select “General Parameters” . On the “General” tab, enable the network functionality by selecting“Yes”in the“Allow Network Features”parameter field

Delem Controller

Optionally, in case Remote Assistance will be used, you can choose to enable it also. In the “Remote Assistance” tab select “on” either in “Allow Remote Assistance" or in“Allow incoming connections”:

For  more detailed  information  about  Remote  Assistance feature,  please  refer  to the Application Note AN1108.

Now perform a restart of the controller. After this, go to“Settings”menu.

At the right side of the “Time Settings”tab, now you can see also a“Network" tab:

Delem Controller

The network status can be checked here, right below the logo field.

Now tap the “Network Settings” button:

Delem Controller

A“Network Settings” pop-up window will appear; here the Interface should be enabled, like shown below:

Delem Controller

If you are connecting to a network that has a DHCP server available, then you should also enable it.

If you are connecting the controller to a PC directly via a network cable and nothing else in between, then DHCP should not be enabled. In this case it is better to use a fixed IP address either at the PC or at the controller, taking care that the IP addresses are within the same subnet mask.

Once that the“END" button is tapped, you should see the“Network status”field showing the network speed:

At this moment we have already the controller properly connected to the network.
