Association of American Railroads ARP: Address Resolution Protocol AServer: AServer – Safetran (Siemens Rail Automation) ATCS Server (ASERVER.EXE) is a standalone executable program that manages statistical and diagnostic traffic in an ATCS (Automatic Train Control System) environment. Its primary function is to route Network Management System (NMS) data packets between endpoints in a LAN-based WCC network.
Clothing and ESD prevention gear, such as grounding straps or floor pads, can help prevent ESD conditions. GCP 4000: Gate Crossing Predictor 4000 – A Siemens Rail Automation product that provides a train detection device used as part of a highway-railroad grade crossing warning system to provide a relatively uniform warning time.
SEAR II or IIi: Safetran Event Analyzer Recorder, Model II or Iii – Siemens Rail Automation product that is a non-vital stand-alone system designed to provide continuous real-time general purpose status monitoring and event recording for a wide range of functions associated with railroad wayside and grade crossing installations.
A53457 converts Echelon messages to Ethernet messages allowing Safetran equipment to use Ethernet Spread Spectrum radios A53325 for communications. WAG assembly A53457 also converts Echelon received messages to RS232 messages allowing the system to use modems for communication between Safetran equipment.
DESCRIPTION 1.0 DESCRIPTION GENERAL The Wayside Access Gateway (A53457) converts Echelon® messages to Ethernet messages. This lets Safetran (Siemens) equipment such as the HD/Link, use Ethernet Networks for communications. The Wayside Access Gateway (WAG) can also convert Echelon received messages to serial messages.
DESCRIPTION Figure 1-1. General Network Overview WAG MESSAGE MANAGEMENT Upon startup of a WAG, it has an empty routing table. As devices report and respond, the WAG dynamically updates the routing table. When an Advanced Train Control System (ATCS) message comes into the WAG from the Ethernet, Echelon, or a serial port, the WAG checks its internal routing table to see if it has seen the address before.
DESCRIPTION When a route to an ATCS device is in the routing table, indicating that it goes through a particular IP address on the Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN), but later appears on a different Internet Protocol (IP) address, the new IP address will be adopted. This can occur when a WAG within the network is swapped out with another WAG that has a different IP address configured.
DESCRIPTION WAG HARDWARE INTERFACE The front of the Wayside Access Gateway unit (see Figure 1-2) has 1 serial port, 5 LEDs, 3 network jacks, and 1 Echelon/power connector. These interface devices are described in the following paragraphs. Figure 1-2. Wayside Access Gateway 1.3.1 Ports The following table describes the WAG ports.
DESCRIPTION Port No. Name Description J3A/J3B Second Ethernet Dual RJ45 connectors for inserting 12V DC at 1 Amp to power interface Safetran Ethernet Radio A53325. The wiring for J3A is non-standard. Echelon and 6-Pin connector provides two pins for the twisted-pair Echelon power interface interface.
DESCRIPTION 188.8.131.52 Pinouts for J3A/J3B The following table shows the pinouts for J3A and J3B. Table 1-4. Pinouts for J3A/J3B J3A Pin No. J3B Pin No. Name Signal Description Radio Eth Transmit data + Radio Eth Transmit data - Radio Eth Receive data + Radio Eth Receive data - 4, 5 +12VDC...
DESCRIPTION 1.3.2 LED Indicators The front of the WAG has 5 LEDs. • Green Health LED flashes to indicate good health. Red TP LAN LED flashes when Echelon transmits or receives a message frame. • Green Power OK LED indicates the WAG is powered. •...
DESCRIPTION 1.4.5 Default Factory Settings WAG Type 7 ATCS Address: 7.620.100.100.01.01 • • WAG Type 3 ATCS Address: 3.620.10.1000 • Serial interface: RS232, 9600, None, 8, 1/NoFlow, RTS asserted Serial format is: Command mode • WAG test mode: Disabled • Echelon address: 01.01 •...
DESCRIPTION PERSISTENT SERIAL TUNNELING (PST) FUNCTIONALITY In a Persistent Serial Tunneling (PST) application (see Figure 1-3), the WAG operates as a modem that enables serial devices to communicate via the LAN. The WAG converts the serial data into Ethernet packets and transmits the information onto the LAN. A second WAG at the other end converts the information back to serial data for use by the other serial device.
DESCRIPTION 5. Both WAG Serial Interface baud rates must match the baud rate of the serial device that it is plugged into. Once a Tunnel is established, serial data from any serial device(s) plugged into either WAG will be sent to the serial device(s) plugged into the other WAG. When a Tunnel is established, if the tunnel is dropped for some reason, the WAG will attempt to re-establish the connection if the WAG is configured with a valid Serial Tunnel IP address and if the WAG is still in RAW data mode.
DESCRIPTION If a known route to an office device exists for that LLL, the WAG will send the ATCS messages to that IP address at the “ATCS Server User Datagram Protocol (UDP) Port number” configured into the WAG. The expiry timer for the “Active route list” entry for that LLL is refreshed. If there is no known route toward the office for the LLL, the WAG will issue a “route request”...
DESCRIPTION In addition to other typical configuration requirements for the WAG, in general, the following are required for OSI to work: 1. The Type 3 ATCS address option must be configured with a proper address. 2. The WAG Circuit ID must be configured. 3.
DESCRIPTION If J1/J2 jumper detection is disabled and the WAG is configured for RS485, the Boot Monitor assumes that the jumpers are in place, the WAG will immediately launch the executive software, not offering the usual boot menu. If J1/J2 jumper detection is enabled and the Boot Monitor doesn’t detect the transmitted test frame being looped back to it, the Boot Monitor will try again, up to four more times, performing a bit of a delay between each test.
DESCRIPTION J1/J2 JUMPER DETECT TEST FRAMES The test frames issued by the WAG’s boot monitor look something like the following: :JT010232053192X: When the operator has a computer plugged into the serial interface and the WAG starts testing whether the J1/J2 jumpers are in place, the operator may see these test frames. The jumper detection test frames start with :JT to indicate a Jumper Test.
DESCRIPTION Connector 1 Connector 2 Connector 3 Figure 1-7. RS485 Cable Interconnections Connector 1 Connector 2 Connector 3 Figure 1-8. RS485 Cable Interconnections 1-15 Document No.: COM-00-05-16 June 2006, Revised June 2014 Version: C.1...
DESCRIPTION 1.11 HDLC-UI OPERATION There are two modes of HDLC-UI operation. The first mode consists of an “HDLC Un-numbered Information frame” mode and the other mode consists of an “HDLC Raw Serial Tunnel” mode. The HDLC-UI mode of operation allows ATCS messages that are encapsulated in HDLC UI frames to be sent and received on the serial interface.

INSTALLATION AND CONFIGURATION Figure 2-66. Unknown Outbound Echelon Message Option 2.6.34 Telnet Password: Disabled If a Telnet password has been defined for the WAG, an operator enters the password (maximum of 20 characters) upon establishing a Telnet session, which will allow commands to be issued to the WAG.
OPERATION SECTION 3 OPERATION 3.0 OPERATION INTRODUCTION This section explains the available commands with respect to the WAG. Table 3-1. WAG Commands Command Shorthand Description Gets a list of keyboard commands. Breaks to the boot monitor. Break Returns the WAG serial interface to command mode from Telnet. Command Allows changes to the WAG configuration.
OPERATION When performing any of the commands described in the following paragraphs, the user can save the information to a file. For more information, see the documentation for the terminal emulation software or for the Telnet application. VIEWING THE STATUS The user can view the status and the log for the WAG.
The “xx stack use” indicated at the right side of the example above is the maximum percentage of stack space used by that task and is only used by Siemens Rail Automation personnel to ensure that allocated task stack space does not become exhausted.
OPERATION When the “status” command is entered by the user, an additional block of status information is provided (only if a valid Circuit ID is configured into the WAG). This additional information appears following the Echelon Channel information at the end of the status listing. An example of this information is shown below.
OPERATION To View the Routing Table: Type routes and press Enter. The route table information appears, similar to the following: FF.SNT.NOD Timer Interface Port Address Sent Received 41.001.003 0120 Echelon 7.620.020.010.03.02 073269 073249 00.000.000 0120 010.232.053.041 -UDP- 7.620.020.020.03.02 073249 146500 00.000.000 0120 010.232.053.041...
OPERATION PERSISTENT SERIAL TUNNEL COMMAND If two WAGs are configured for a PST, the tunnel will be established by one of the WAGs at power up. In the diagram below WAGs 1 and 3 are configured for the PST. SEAR Preconfigured PST PACKET SWITCH At any time after the tunnel is established, the user can drop the tunnel and establish a “for the...
OPERATION If the “for the duration tunnel” is established, the user is not shown anything when the connection is made; however, anything sent by the user, such as from HyperTerm, will be sent out the serial interface of the remote WAG. This is because once the tunnel is established, the WAG, which the user used to request the connection, will immediately be placed into Data Mode.
OPERATION SENDING A PING TO AN IP ADDRESS The Ping command accepts an IP address and causes the WAG to issue an ICMP PING frame out the Ethernet interface. If a response from a device with that offered IP address is received, the WAG will display a sequence number to the Ping response.
OPERATION For example, if a Packet Switch, OCG or other office device is running codeline 110 and the user types: rping 110 The WAG will display: RPING: Searching for 110 After the Packet Switch, OCG or other office device responds, the WAG will display: RPING: 110 is at 010.232.054.015 That informs the user that the office device is able to speak with the WAG in both directions.
OPERATION When the Trace is enabled, the HEX values of input messages to the interface (whether it is XPort, Serial or Echelon), and output messages from the interface are displayed. An ASCII representation of the printable characters is also displayed within the trace. The tracing of Ethernet results in the trace being sent only out the serial interface.
OPERATION Type trace P and then press Enter. The Persistent TCP Serial Tunnel to Event Log information begins as follows: trace P Serial Tunnel activity will trace to Event Log When tracing is enabled for Persistent Serial Tunneling, the following entries may be placed into the system event log: PST: Persistent request to 010.232.053.043 PST: Persistent Tunnel was dropped...
OPERATION As the above displays, an inbound DHCP request with “Discover” for a radio was received from the radio with a MAC address of 00-0d-94-00-3a-c2. The WAG then tested its configured binding by issuing an ICMP PING to IP address of 10.232.53.53 to see if it was being used. While waiting for a possible response to the PING, the radio sent another DHCP request.
OPERATION Type trace R and then press ENTER. The WAG will display, "IP Redundancy will trace to serial and Telnet session". When the trace of IP Redundancy is enabled, the following types of trace information may be displayed: IPR: Indi Remote OK: NO, Active: NO, Remote Ech: NO This indicates that the WAG is sending an Indication message to the Ladder Logic device it is being controlled by (typically a SEARii.) There are three other status reports in the example shown above.
OPERATION This indicates the IP address of the symbolic name that has successfully been looked up in the DNS server. DNS: Asking XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX for [symbolic.name] This indicates that the WAG is sending a DNS request to the IP address of the indicated DNS server asking for the IP address of the symbolic name.
OPERATION 3.15 DATA/COMMAND MODE FROM A SERIAL INTERFACE In Command mode, the data command changes the WAG serial interface to Data mode if the serial interface is configured for a data protocol. When the WAG is in Data Mode, all frames received on the serial interface are treated as frames intended for a serial protocol.

TROUBLESHOOTING SECTION 4 TROUBLESHOOTING 4.0 TROUBLESHOOTING INTRODUCTION This section helps the user solve common problems. DEVICES NOT TALKING TO EACH OTHER ON NETWORK Typically, the problem is an improperly configured WAG. If two or more WAGs are supposed to communicate with each other across the Ethernet, the UDP port number configured in all WAGs must be the same.
TROUBLESHOOTING 1. If the device is an Echelon device, verify the device is transmitting on the Echelon. Examine the TP LAN LED on the WAG. Every time the WAG receives a frame on the Echelon, the LED flashes. If there is more than one device on the Echelon interface, turn the other devices off, leaving the device that is not appearing in the table powered up.
TROUBLESHOOTING If the serial interface is configured properly and the serial baud rate is correct, use a protocol analyzer to confirm the serial ATCS device is sending ATCS messages to the WAG. If the serial ATCS device is sending messages, the messages may be the problem. The WAG does not add the device to the route table if the ATCS message is badly formatted, has a bad address, or the CRC is invalid.
TROUBLESHOOTING To isolate the problem, power off the WAG or the ATCS device on the LAN. On the computer, open a DOS window and ping the IP addresses for both devices. If a ping response is received, another device shares an IP address the user wants to use. To solve the problem, ping the next sequential IP address until the user finds an IP address that is not being used.
TROUBLESHOOTING In this case, download new Executive to the WAG using the boot menu option. If the problem persists, the fault may be a hardware error - either a RAM error or a faulty FLASH ROM. If the user downloads new Executive software and the problem persists, send the WAG in for repair.
TROUBLESHOOTING CANNOT TELNET TO WAG The WAG ships from Siemens Industry, Inc. with TCP Slot #1 configured for well-known TCP port number 23, the Internet Telnet port number. Any of the TCP slots can be configured with well- known port number 23 and the user can Telnet to the WAG.
TROUBLESHOOTING NOTE The above logged event will be displayed approximately once every 10 seconds until the problem is corrected. If the WAG IP address is altered to remove the conflict or another device on the LAN is reconfigured to correct the problem, the WAG power must be cycled to reset the problem reporting.

MAINTENANCE SECTION 5 MAINTENANCE 5.0 MAINTENANCE INTRODUCTION There are no adjustments in the WAG. If a unit is suspected of being faulty, it should be replaced. No field repairs should be attempted. No other periodic field maintenance is required. Procedures for uploading and downloading files to and from the WAG can be accomplished from the boot screen or from the terminal ready screen.
MAINTENANCE Figure 5-2. Send File Pop-up Window 5. Select the file location of the software to be downloaded. Set the file transfer protocol to Zmodem and then click Send. The Zmodem File Send screen will be displayed. Figure 5-3. Zmodem File Send Screen 6.
MAINTENANCE 1. Type xfiles and then press Enter. The ZMODEM file transfer menu will be displayed. Figure 5-4. ZMODEM File Transfer Menu 2. From the ZMODEM file transfer menu, select the applicable software type to upload by choosing the applicable upload option (Options 5 through 7). 3.
MAINTENANCE Figure 5-6. Zmodem File Receive Screen 6. When the upload is complete, restart the WAG. UPGRADING WAG VIA BOOT OPTIONS SCREEN The user/installer can upgrade the executive software using a HyperTerminal or another terminal emulator. To download files to the WAG from the boot screen (figure 5-7), follow the procedures described in paragraph 5.2.
6.0 USING ADVANCED OPTIONS INTRODUCTION This section explains the advanced options of the Wayside Access Gateway (WAG). The information in this section is to be used under the supervision of Siemens Rail Automation personnel. BOOT MENU OPTIONS The Boot Options Screen appears for 5 seconds when the user first boots the WAG. The Boot Options Screen includes the following 7 options: Table 6-1.
If required, the user/installer can troubleshoot the WAG by performing the following procedures. CAUTION THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED IF DIRECTED BY A SIEMENS RAIL AUTOMATION EMPLOYEE. IF THIS PROCESS IS PERFORMED INCORRECTLY, DAMAGE TO THE WAG CAN OCCUR.
This command determines whether a RAM address has a hardware problem or determines if a particular FLASH ROM sector is empty. Use this command only under the direction of a Siemens Rail Automation employee. The MEM command takes either one or two arguments.
Xilinx code, configuration, or executive code into an otherwise unused FLASH sector. Typically, the user will only use this command when directed by a Siemens Rail Automation employee. Additionally, the user can capture blocks of RAM and save them to otherwise unused FLASH ROM.
– Exception test This command is used by Siemens Rail Automation personnel to exercise the fatal error recovery capabilities of the WAG software. The test loads the registers of the internal CPU with known values and then forces a fatal error to ensure that the accurate contents of the CPU registers are displayed in the event of an actual fatal error.
CAUTION THIS PROCEDURE SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED IF INSTRUCTED BY SIEMENS RAIL AUTOMATION PERSONNEL. THE WAG CAN BE DAMAGED IF NOT PERFORMED PROPERLY. After the new code is sent to the WAG, the unit automatically stores the new software in FLASH memory.
USING ADVANCED OPTIONS Same as Test 0. This test runs until it is stopped. TEST 3 To leave this mode, type test and press Enter. 6.5.2 Using XDUMP The XDUMP command asks the Ethernet XPort component to send back a block of its internal RAM memory so that the application code can display it out the serial interface.
