Device Properties - DeviceMaster LT NS-Link for Windows

You can use the following procedure to configure the DeviceMaster LT device properties. Optionally, you can refer to the DeviceMaster NS-Link Device Driver User Guide, or use the Comtrol Drivers Management Console help system for detailed information.

  1. If you have not done so, configure the Network Connection Mode for the DeviceMaster LT using the appropriate method for your environment.

  2. Highlight the DeviceMaster LT device name that you want to configure.

  3. If desired, change the User-Friendly Device Name.

  4. Optionally, set a different Keep Alive Timeout period. You can set the amount of time in seconds that this DeviceMaster LT waits until it closes this connection and frees all the ports associated with it.

    This value may be set to less than 5 seconds, however the DeviceMaster LT may not operate at any value less than 5. A recommended value to begin experimentation with is 10.

  5. Optionally, set the TCP Timeout Multiplier value.

    This value should not be modified unless the network connection to the DeviceMaster LT is very slow, such as, if a satellite uplink connection is involved. It is recommended that a value over 3 never be used.

  6. Optionally, click a different Scan Rate (ms).

  7. Optionally, change the Number of Devices to Load at Once.

  8. If necessary, click Do NOT Attempt to Load Firmware in Device.

  9. Optionally, click Verbose Event Log if you want to log additional DeviceMaster LT information into the event log.

  10. After making your changes, click Apply.

  11. If necessary, configure advanced COM port properties.

  12. If necessary, configure any of the DeviceMaster LT ports as sockets.
