4 | Conﬁ guration
Conﬁ gure the B426 using one of the methods described in this section
for your control panel type.
4.1 | PnP for SDI2 or option bus control panel
Option bus control panels support AMAX 2100/ 3000/ 4000
ﬁ rmware version v1.5 or higher only.
By default, when connecting a ﬁ eld replacement B426 to an
existing SDI2 or option bus control panel, the panel overrides
the module settings. To keep custom module settings when
you connect a module to a conﬁ gured control panel, you must
disable Panel Programming using web-based conﬁ guration,
prior to connecting to the SDI2 or option bus.
When connected to a non-default SDI2 or option bus control panel, the
control panel automatically conﬁ gures a connected module.
Set the address switch to the correct address for the control panel
(SDI2 control panels use address 1 or 2, option control panels use
addresses 134 or 250).
Connect the module to the control panel bus and apply power.
Program the control panel communication settings using RPS for
SDI2 control panel, A-Link for option control panel, or the keypad.
4.2 | PnP for SDI or option bus control panels
When installing under the following conditions, the B426 needs no
further conﬁ guration:
DHCP is available on your network.
AES encryption is not required.
Default B426 port settings (UDP on Port 7700) are permitted by
the network administrator.
4.3 | Web-based conﬁ guration
For installations requiring non-default conﬁ guration, use the B426 web-
based conﬁ guration pages.
To use the B426 conﬁ guration pages, you need the module’s IP address
The default hostname for the module is the letter B followed
by the last six alpha-numeric digits of its MAC address (for
Locate the IP address in the table on the DHCP server
To use Auto IP, directly connect from your PC to the B426.
Within 60 seconds, the B426 temporarily assumes address
169.254.1.1 for conﬁ guration. (Refer to the Conettix Ethernet
Communication Module Installation and Operation Guide for
more information on using these methods.)
