M12 (8-pin, X-coded Male) to RJ45 (8-pin) Straight-through UTP Cabling
|M12 X-coded Male Connector Pin No.||MDI 1000BASE-T Signal ID||
|RJ45 Connector Pin No.|
Note: As each Ethernet port of the Wall-mount Managed Switch is running in auto negotiation mode, make sure the Ethernet ports of the corresponding Ethernet devices are also running in auto negotiation mode; otherwise, the Ethernet performance will be poor.
Connecting M12 Cable to the WGS-5225-8MTNote: Follow the steps below to connect M12 cables to the WGS-5225-8MT.
Step 1: Turn counterclockwise to remove the waterproof caps of an M12 connector and power input.
Step 2: Insert the M12 UTP male connector into the M12 female Gigabit Ethernet port of the Wall-mount Managed Switch.
Step 3: Turn clockwise to tighten the cable of the M12 connector and make sure the connection is tight.
Step 4: Insert the M12 power female connector into the M12 male port of the power input.
Step 5: Turn clockwise to tighten the cable connecting to the M12 power connector.
Caution: To have the vibration-proof effect, connectors must be totally tightened.
M12 DC Power Cable
Pin AssignmentThe front panel of the Wall-mount Managed Switch provides one M12 DC power 5-pin male connector for DC power input. Please use the power cable with the M12 DC power 5-pin female connector from the Wall-mount Managed Switch package for DC power input. The M12 DC power cable pin assignment is shown below:
|M12 DC power cable pin assignment and wiring code|
|V1 positive (+) pin = blue cable|
|V1 negative (-) pin = white cable|
|V2 positive (+) pin = black cable|
|V2 negative (-) pin = brown cable|
Note: Make sure you connect the correct power pin to your DC power source.
- The wire gauge for the power cable should be in the range of 12 ~ 24 AWG.
- The DC power input range is 9 ~ 48V DC.
- Workstations running Windows XP/2003/Vista/7/8/2008/10, MAC OS X or later, Linux, UNIX, or other platforms are compatible with TCP/IP protocols.
- Workstations are installed with Ethernet NIC (Network Interface Card)
- Ethernet Port Connection
- Network cables — Use network (UTP) cables with M12 (X-coded) and RJ45 connectors.
- The above PC is installed with Web browser.
Note: It is recommended to use Internet Explorer 8.0 or above to access the Wall-mount Managed Switch. If the Web interface of the Wallmount Managed Switch is not accessible, please turn off the antivirus software or firewall and then try it again.
Wall Mount Installation
To install the Wall-mount Managed Switch on the wall, simply follow the following steps:
Step 1: It is required 4 holes with 8mm diameter on the wall; the distance between the 2 holes is 230 mm and the line through them must be horizontal.
Step 2: Install a conductor pipe inside the board hole and flush the edge of the conductor pipe with the wall surface.Step 3: Screw the bolts into the conductor pipe. The Wall-mount Managed Switch is between bolts and conductor pipe, as shown below.
Wall Hanging InstallationTo hang the Wall-mount Managed Switch on the wall, simply follow the following steps:
Step 1: Drill 2 holes (one hole on each side) with 8mm diameter on the wall; the distance between the 2 holes is 230 mm and the line through them must be horizontal.Step 2: Place two anchors inside the board hole by hammering them. Then screw the two screws leaving a space of 2mm apart as shown in the circled diagram below.
Step 3: The switch, shown in the picture below, can now be hung on the wall.
To install the Wall-mount Managed Switch on a magnetic surface, simply follow the following diagram:
Step 1: There are six holes in front, using six sets of magnets to install. Please refer to the following.Step 2: Turn the switch to the back, then screw the magnet to the middle hole.
Caution: Make sure the equipment is securely magnetically-mounted as strong vibration could cause it to drop or break.
The DIN-rail kit is included in the package. When the wall mounting of the Wallmount Managed Switch needs to be replaced with DIN-rail mounting, refer to the following figures to screw the DIN-rail on the Wall-mount Managed Switch. To hang up the Wall-mount Managed Switch, follow the steps below:Step 1: Screw the DIN-rail on the Wall-mount Managed Switch.
Step 2: Lightly insert the DIN-rail into the track.
Step 3: Check whether the DIN-rail is tightly on the track.
Starting Web Management
The following shows how to start up the Web Management of the Wall-mount Managed Switch. Note the Wall-mount Managed Switch is configured through an Ethernet connection. Please make sure the manager PC must be set to the same IP subnet address.For example, the default IP address of the Wall-mount Managed Switch is 192.168.0.100, then the manager PC should be set to 192.168.0.x (where x is a number between 1 and 254, except 100) and the default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.
Logging in to the Wall-mount Managed Switch
- Use Internet Explorer 8.0 or above Web browser and enter IP address http://192.168.0.100 to access the Web interface.
- When the following dialog box appears, please enter “admin” in both the default user name and password fields. The login screen in Figure 6-2 appears.Default IP Address: 192.168.0.100Default Username: adminDefault Password: admin
- After entering the password, the main screen appears as Figure 6-3 shows.The Switch Menu on the top of the Web page lets you access all the commands and statistics the Wall-mount Managed Switch provides. The Switch Menu always contains one or more buttons, such as “System”, “Switching”, “Routing”, “QoS”, “Security”, “Ring” and “Maintenance”.If you are not familiar with Switch functions or the related param-eter, press “Help icon” anytime on the Web page to get the help description.
