Make sure the proper cable connection has been made and select the desired communication type
by clicking on either green button.
A.4 RS-232/422 COMMUNICATION
This function requires a serial cable and connector, available on request, to connect the UIC and the
RheoVac instrument electronics. This connection allows the user to view real time data of important
parameters in a convenient gauge screen layout. From this gauge screen, the user may choose to
graph a single parameter for all probes, graph all parameters for a single probe, or archive data
directly to the UIC. The archive rate can also be adjusted. These are the only functions available
using serial communication. No commands or updates can be sent to the RheoVac instrument using
this communication method.
A.5 ETHERNET COMMUNICATION
User interface using Ethernet connection allows the user to: synchronize the RheoVac clock with
the UIC clock, retrieve stored data
, update files
, change line size, and access data. These network
access utilities are performed from a user interface computer (UIC) connected directly (peer-to-peer)
to the RheoVac unit using a crossover network cable or from a network computer when the RheoVac
instrument is connected to a network (LAN/WAN)
using a straight Ethernet cable.
Each RheoVac instrument is identified by a unique network ID. The ID begins with the letter “R”
followed by the first five digits of the serial number found on the unit. (RheoVac Model 950 devices
which have not been serviced by the factory since 2005 may use the serial numbers or “RheoVac
