Sigma UNC 632, 696/796 controllers, connecting to a Flat Ethernet network.

Issue

Advice on the configuration of a Sigma UNC 632, UNC 696 or UNC 796 controller, when connecting it to a "Flat" Ethernet network.

Product Line

Satchwell Sigma

Environment

All Sigma controllers connected to flat ethernet network.

Cause

General advice.

Resolution

A "Flat" Ethernet network is a network that does not contain any subnets, for instance a network who's address is 10.158.0.0 Mask 255.255.0.0 will contain network addresses 10.158.0.1 to 10.158.255.254.

On this type of network the Sigma device will only require an IP address and Subnet Mask to be entered.

This information and details of the controllers "Default Server" are added to the controller using the SDCU (Sigma Device Configuration Utility).
