About the Digi One IAP
Key Features
The Digi One IAP is high-performance, flexible device server that meets the specific requirements of
the industrial automation (IA) market. It delivers simple, reliable and cost effective network
connectivity for serial devices common in industrial automation applications, such as Programmable
Logic Controllers (PLC), CNC/DNC (Computerized Numerical Control/Direct Numerical Control)
equipment, process and quality control equipment, bar-code readers, operator displays, scales and
weighing stations, printers, vision systems, and many other types of manufacturing equipment.
Features include:
nAn industrial-strength, ergonomic enclosure designed to mount on a standard DIN rail
nEIA-232/422/485 switch select ability for use with virtually any device with a serial port, and
expanded supply voltage range of 9-30 VDC with screw terminal connections or the industry’s
first powered Ethernet option (802.3af) that eliminates the need for an external power supply.
nRealPort® COM Port redirection technology
nEasy web-based configuration
nMulti-master capability
nEasy management through SNMP
Flexible Industrial Automation support
The Digi One IAP support for IA protocols is exceedingly flexible, providing connectivity solutions in a
wide variety of industrial automation environments. It supports the following:
nMulti-mastering, which means that a slave using any supported serial port protocol can be
managed by multiple masters; the masters need not use the same network protocol to access
the device server.
nA variety of serial-port protocols, including Modbus ASCII, Modbus RTU, DF1 Full-Duplex,
Compoway/F, FINS, and Hostlink. Support extends to what Digi calls the user-defined”
protocol, which is any serial protocol that has fixed header and trailer strings that bound all
message packets and where each protocol request is followed by a single response.
nAlmost any other IA serial device, master or slave, as long as the device on the other side of the
network can communicate using TCP sockets, UDP sockets, or COM Port redirection (using
RealPort).

Configure the Digi One IAP using IAprofiles
This section describes the IA configuration profiles available for the Digi One IAP, and describes how to
configure the Digi One IAP for use in an IA environment.
About IA configuration profiles
Port profiles simplify serial port configuration by displaying only those items that are relevant to the
currently selected profile.
There are several port profile choices for the Digi One IAP, on the Serial Port Configuration page of the
web interface. If a port profile has already been selected, it appears at the top of the Serial Port
Configuration page in the web interface. Everything displayed on the Serial Port Configuration page
between Port Profile Settings and the links to the Basic Serial Settings and Advanced Serial
Settings depends on the port profile selected.
You can change the selected profile or modify individual settings of a selected profile.
Key terms in IA configuration profiles
IA configuration profiles involve the following key terms and concepts.
Term Description
Com port redirection A method of redirecting the serial data
generated by a PC-based master to a slave
connected to a port on a network-based device
server. In this scheme, the master thinks it is
communicating with a device connected to a
serial port on the PC system when, in fact, the
data is encapsulated in network packets and
transported across the network to a device
connected to a serial port on the Digi One IAP.
Many applications, written to support serial
communication only, require this service in order
to communicate over the Ethernet.
IA Abbreviation for industrial automation.
master (or protocol master) The host or IA device that initiates all
communication with a protocol slave.
Digi One IAP Family User Guide 9
C Saideleocol Slave
Configure the Digi One IAP using IAprofiles Serial bridge profile: master and slave connected to Digi ports
Digi One IAP Family User Guide 10
Term Description
multi-master Any configuration in which more than one master
simultaneously communicates with a slave.
protocol request A message generated by the master and sent to
the slave that requests information or issues a
command protocol response a message
generated by the slave in response to a protocol
request from the master.
slave (or protocol slave) The device that responds to requests from the
master.
TCP socket (or TCP socket service) A type of network service that uses TCP to
ensure reliability. When this guide discusses TCP
sockets, it means that IA protocol messages are
encapsulated in network packets and
transported across the network using a standard
network service. Many applications support
connections to devices using TCP socket.
TCP tunnel A TCP socket connection in which a master is
connected to the serial port of one device and a
slave to the serial port of another device.
RealPort UDP sockets (or UDP socket service) similar to
TCP socket service (discussed above) except that
the UDP protocol is used instead of TCP, which
means that the reliability service TCP performs is
not provided. Advantages of UDP socket service
are slightly less protocol overhead and support
for multicasting. Some applications support
connections to devices using TCP socket.
UDP tunnel A UDP socket configuration in which a master is
connected to the serial port of one device and a
slave to the serial port of another device.
Serial bridge profile: master and slave connected to Digi ports
Use the Serial Bridge profile to connect a protocol master to the serial port of one device server and
the protocol slave (or slaves) to the serial port of another device server. This profile, which is often
called a serial bridge, is applicable to environments that use most IA serial port protocols and to multi-
master environments as well. The network is completely transparent to the serial devices, which
means they do not have to be reconfigured.
: ModbnsASCWRTU Serial Slave
Configure the Digi One IAP using IAprofiles Modbus profile: serial-connected slave
Digi One IAP Family User Guide 11
Configuration requirements
The serial port connections must be configured to meet the requirements of the attached device,
which can be one of the following:
nModbus ASCII
nModbus RTU
nDF1 Full-Duplex
nOmron Hostlink
nOmron FINS
nOmron CompoWay/F
nA serial port protocol that meets Digi’s definition of a “user defined” protocol, that is, one that
has fixed header and trailer strings that bound all message packets and where each protocol
request is followed by a single response.
For the network connection, Digi recommends TCP sockets, which works regardless of the serial port
protocol specified and provides an efficient and reliable network service. Another option is UDP
sockets, which also works with all the serial port protocols, although it lacks TCP socket reliability. For
Modbus devices, Modbus/TCP is an option, and for DF1 Full-Duplex devices, Allen Bradley Ethernet and
Ethernet/IP are options.

master: TCP/UDP sockets.
nTo configure any of the other network communication protocols, see Configure a serial-
connected master: generic procedure.
Modbus profile: serial-connected slave
Use the Modbus profile to connect a slave device (or devices) using Modbus RTU or Modbus ASCII. This
profile is applicable to environments in which multiple masters control the slave or slaves.
Configuration requirements
The serial port connection must be configured for the protocol required by the slave, in this case

The Digi One IAP has a second DIP switch on the top of the device for enabling the pass-through port.
When the pass-through port DIP switch is enabled (ON), the DIP switch bank for EIA-232/422/485
operates for the screw terminal port only. The screw terminal port is port 1. The DB-9 serial port
operates as the second port supporting only EIA-232.
The following are the procedures to enable the pass-through port as well as diagnostic and
troubleshooting tips for using the pass-through port.
Enable the pass-through port
1. While the unit is off, slide the pass-through switch to ON.
2. Power up the unit.
3. Install RealPort from the Access Resource CD under Software.
Note If the unit has already been configured and you are adding the pass-through port, reboot the
unit after enabling the pass-through port. If RealPort is installed before the pass-through port is
enabled, the driver must be reinstalled. Configure the pass-through port as the Master port. See
Configure a serial-connected slave: other IA protocol.
Run diagnostics
The following diagrams are for the screw terminal loopback used when testing two port functionality
with the user diagnostics. When running diagnostics, connect to the DB-9. When running user
diagnostics in single port mode, remove the TS-9 loopback.
