First connect the Bus Monitor and PC via USB so that you can program the Bus Monitor to send data to PC’s IP address via UDP.



Connect to Bus Monitor via USB first and click on the USB button on the HMI which will ask you to load settings from device. You may say ‘Yes’.

Once, connected via USB, select “Device” > “Event Mask Settings”.

Ensure that you have selected all the events that you’d like to monitor over Ethernet. To apply the new settings click “Apply” and then “OK”. This will then apply these changes to the HW device.



Also, select which audio channels are to be logged over Ethernet. This is available under the same “Device” menu under “Audio Capture Settings”


Select the Ethernet Audio Slots that are interesting to you. Click “Apply” to apply these settings and then “OK”.

Now the final step is to set the Ethernet Network Settings. This is also available under “Device” > “Ethernet Settings”.

You may specify an Device IP address and Data Logger (PC) IP.


The Data Logger IP should match the IP address of the PC. If you are not sure what your what your PC IP address is, you may set the IP address as above and then make a modification with your internet settings as shown in STEP 2.



Open “Control Panel” > “Network and Sharing Center”. Under this menu select “Change adapter settings”. You’ll now be presented with a list of Network adapters that you PC has. Select the one that says “Ethernet”, right click on it to open Properties. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click Properties and enter the Data Logger IP that you specified with the Bus Monitor and click OK once complete.

Note: Ensure that Windows Firewall is turned OFF (or turned off atleast for this application) as firewall block all UDP packets.

This completes the setup to use the Bus Monitor over a Static IP address. You may also use DHCP if you are connected to the same network (your organization may put certain restrictions)
