    26. Secure the side panels by turning the four quarter-turn locks on each panel.

    Configuration Steps

    1. Reset the RMX power supply to the default factory settings.
      1. Flip the power switch to the on position.
      2. Press the MENU button to illuminate the menu LED and wait for SEt to appear on the voltage display.
      3. Turn the voltage encoder until MEMO appears.
      4. Press the voltage encoder and wait for SAVE to appear.
      5. Turn the voltage encoder until F.rst appears.
      6. Press the voltage encoder and wait for F.rst to appear on the voltage display and YES to appear on the current display.
      7. Press the current encoder and wait for HOLD to appear.
      8. Press the MENU button twice to turn the menu LED off.
    2. Configure the power supply IP address.
      1. Press the REM button on the front panel of the power supply.
      2. Press the current encoder and wait for Adr to appear on the current display.
      3. Turn the current encoder to address 6.
      4. Press the current encoder to save the address.
    3. Reset the power supply to the LAN default factory settings.
      1. Press the REM button on the remote.
      2. Turn the voltage encoder until rST appears on the voltage display.
      3. Press the current encoder and wait for rST to appear on the current display.
      4. Press the current encoder to reset the system.
      5. Flip the power switch to the off position and leave the RMX-410 power supply off for five seconds.
      6. Flip the power switch to the on position.
    4. Configure the static IP address.
      1. Press the REM button on the front panel of the power supply and wait for IntF to appear on the voltage encoder.
      2. Press the voltage encoder.
      3. Turn the current encoder until LAn appears.
      4. Press the current encoder.
      5. Press the REM button.
      6. Turn the voltage encoder until IP appears on the voltage display.
      7. Press the voltage encoder.
      8. Turn the voltage encoder to view the IP address.
        spd-note-note
        Note  

        The voltage display will show IP1-IP4, where IP1 refers to the first section of the IP address. The current display shows the required IP address.

      9. Turn the current encoder to change the IP address.
      10. Press the current encoder to select the IP address.
      11. Repeat steps f through j for each IP address.
        spd-note-note
        Note  

        Order the power supply IP address from left to right and bottom to top. Refer to Programmable Power Supplies for more information on the assigned IP addresses for RMX power supplies.

    5. Add the power supply to NI MAX.
      1. Sign in the ECUTS-16001.
      2. Launch NI MAX and navigate to My System»Devices and Interfaces»Network Devices.
      3. Right-click Network Devices.
      4. Select Auto-detect of LAN Instrument in the dialog box.
      5. Select the RMX power supply automatically detected by NI MAX.
      6. Click Finish.
