Siemens

Teleport can connect to a number of Siemens meters. You can connect using Modbus TCP over ethernet (recommended) or Modbus RTU using the RS485 serial interface. Connecting via RS485 may require an RS485 Expansion Module.

Configuration

Warning

These steps are tailored to the Sentron 9410 ION series. They might deviate slightly for different meter types.

Modbus TCP over ethernet

The Teleport can be connected to the Siemens meter via a router or directly via the LAN port of the meter.

  1. Connect the ethernet cable between the ETH1 port of the Teleport and the router. Navigate to our appendix for generic instructions on how to integrate with a router. Make sure to note the IP of Teleport and the IP of the asset(s).
  2. Start the ION setup and navigate to Startup Assistant > Communications > Basic Ethernet > IPv4.
  3. Select the IP address and click Edit, then select DHCP as the preferred IP address assignment mode.
  4. Click OK to finalize the setting.

Direct connection via the LAN port of the Siemens meter

  1. Connect the ethernet cable between the ETH1 port of the Teleport and the LAN port of the Siemens asset.
  2. Start the ION setup and navigate to Startup Assistant > Communications > Basic Ethernet > IPv4.
  3. Select the IP address and click Edit, then select Stored as the preferred IP address assignment mode.
  4. In the IP settings, confirm the following settings:
    • IP Address: 192.168.0.10
    • Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    • Gateway: 0.0.0.0

Modbus RTU over RS485

  1. Connect the serial cable between the serial port of the Teleport and the serial port of the Siemens RS485 Expansion Module connected to the asset.
  2. Navigate to Home > Setup Menu > Communications Setup > Com1 Setup and input the following settings
    • Protocol: Modbus RTU
    • Baud rate: 19200
    • Rx Timeout: 0.1
    • Unit ID: 126
    • Serial Port: 8N2
    • RS485 Bias: ON
