PC Settings#

Double check that the WIZ510SSL and the PC, or laptop you are using to set up WIZ510SSL with are both on the same Ethernet network.

Example: PC Network Settings#

* When the WIZ510SSL's settings are factory default,

Network SettingsPC or laptop(= destination)IP address192.168.11.3-
::::::Gateway address192.168.11.1-
::::::Port number5000-
  • User should match the network settings of 'WIZ510SSL's remote host' and 'PC (or laptop)' for testing TCP client/mixed mode.

  • If the DHCP(automatic IP allocation) is used, both the WIZ510SSL and test PC must be set to be assigned the same IP from the same router.

Connecting Steps#

The RS-232/TTL version of WIZ510SSL evaluation board is designed to use the DB9 connector to connect with the user’s serial device. Therefore, it is recommended to have all Ethernet and serial ports connected to the PC when testing. If the PC does not have a serial port, please purchase a RS-232 to USB converter separately.

  • In case of the RS-422/455 version of WIZ750SR-EVB, the serial connector is composed of terminal block.

Step 1: Plug in#

Connect the WIZ510SSL module to evaluation board and also the cable as shown in the picture below.

  • Ethernet Cable

    • Used to connect the evaluation board’s RJ-45 connector and the PC’s Ethernet network interface card (PC's RJ-45 connector)
  • Serial Cable

    • Used to connect the evaluation board’s DB9 connector and the serial interface card (DB9 connector). If the PC does support serial interface, use the RS-232 to USB converter.
  • Optional: USB type B cable (for debug message)

    • Used to connect the evaluation board’s USB connector and the PC’s USB connector.

Step 2: Power on#

Connect the 5V power adaptor or USB cable to the evaluation board and turn on the power switch.

  • The power LED will turn red once the evaluation board is on.

Step 3: Search#

Open the configuration tool and click the Device Search button. If the board is turned on and connected to the same network, the MAC address or settings of the WIZ510SSL module can be checked using the configuration tool.

The WIZ510SSL configuration tool can be downloaded from Github below.

Step 4: Set up your WIZ510SSL#

Change the settings accordingly to the customer’s environment. The test shown in this document is based on factory setting.

  • Click the Apply Settings button to apply the changes in settings of the configuration tool.

Step 5: Connect#

Connect the PC as the TCP client of the user’s serial device for data communication testing. In order to do this, the serial terminal program / TCP client terminal program must be opened on the PC. The serial terminal program and TCP client program must be set as below.

  • Serial terminal program: 115200-8-N-1, Flow control: None
  • TCP client program: 192.168.11.2:5000 (The IP address and port number of WIZ510SSL)

The COM port for serial terminal program connection can be checked as below.

  • Control Panel > System > Device Manager
Figure: Device Manager

Step 6: Verify#

The basic data communication of the WIZ510SSL can be verified as below.

  • Serial to Ethernet: data communication verification

    • Enter the character string in the serial terminal and check if the identical character string appears on the TCP client terminal.
  • Ethernet to Serial: data communication verification

    • Enter the character string in the TCP client terminal and check if the identical character string appears on the serial terminal.

Step 7: Done#

Now you’re ready to use the WIZ510SSL!

  • This document is based on the assumption of the PC as the serial device / remote network device.

  • The next step is to connect the WIZ510SSL module to the target serial device and check if the device can communicate, control, and monitor via the remote PC or monitoring server.
