Why can't I save the IP address as part of the SIM card configuration on the STBNIP2212 Advantys STB Ethernet NIM?


STBNIP2212 SIM card and IP address



Product Line

Advantys STB






The IP address can not be saved as part of the SIM card configuration for the following reasons:

  • All other fieldbus types ( MB+ , FIP , Profibus , etc) have the Node and/or Baud rate set via physical interfaces (switches) separate from the configuration of the island.
  • A user may want to use one SIM card to replicate configurations of many islands, and have each island assigned a different node address on the same network.
  • An island configuration can be saved to the SIM card and transferred to a NIM with a different protocol. For example, a Profibus NIM could be configured with parameters for a specific island and then this same SIM configuration could be loaded and used for an Ethernet NIM. This will work as long as the configuration size is not a limitation of the particular field bus that it is being transferred to.
