Overview The NPort IA5000A-I/O and IAW5000A-I/O Series consist of serial device servers with Digital Input/Output (DIO), providing maximum flexibility to integrate serial equipment in the field into Ethernet networks for a variety of industrial data acquisition applications. The DIO on a device can be controlled over TCP/IP, using the Modbus TCP protocol, and it can be configured and secured from a web browser.

Hardware Introduction As shown in the following figures, the NPort IA5000A-I/O Series has two Ethernet RJ45 LAN ports, and the NPort IAW5000A-I/O Series has one Ethernet RJ45 LAN port and one antenna for WiFi (IEEE 802.11 standards) signal communication, supporting 2.4GHz and 5 GHz frequencies. Both series are equipped with four DIs and two DOs for data acquisition applications. The NPort IA5000A-I/O and IAW5000A-I/O device server series come with built-in 4 kV serial port surge protection.


NPort IA5000A-I/O Series The mechanical design of the NPort IA5000A-I/O Series is mostly identical; only the number of serial ports and number of DI/DO channels differ.

NPort IAW5000A-I/O Series The mechanical design of the NPort IAW5150A and the NPort IAW5250A is mostly identical; only the number of serial ports and number of DI/DO channels differ.

Hardware Installation Procedure STEP 1:

After unpacking the unit, connect the power supply to the unit.


Use an Ethernet cable to connect the unit to the network.


Connect your device to the desired port on the unit.


Place or mount the unit. The unit may be placed on a horizontal surface such as a desktop, or mounted on the wall.

Mounting Options The NPort IA5000A-I/O and IAW5000A-I/O are designed to be attached to a DIN rail or mounted on a wall. -4

STEP 1: Insert the top of the DIN rail into the slot.

STEP 2: The DIN rail attachment unit will snap into place as shown at right.

Wall Mounting (optional) For some applications, it may be more convenient to mount the NPort IA5000A-I/O or IAW5000A-I/O to a wall, as illustrated below.

Do not drive the screws in all the way—leave a space of about 2 mm to allow room for sliding the wall-mounting panel between the wall and the screws. NOTE

Test the screw head and shank size by inserting the screws into one of the keyhole-shaped apertures of the wall-mounting plates before they are fixed to the wall.

STEP 3: Once the screws are fixed into the wall, insert the four screw heads through the large opening of the keyhole-shaped apertures, and then slide the NPort downwards, as indicated to the right. Tighten the screws for added stability.

Termination Resistor and Adjustable Pull-Up/Down Resistors In some critical environments, you may need to add termination resistors to prevent the reflection of serial signals. When using termination resistors, it is important to set the pull-up/down resistors correctly so that the electrical signal is not corrupted. The NPort IA5000A-I/O and IAW5000A-I/O Series use DIP switches to set the pull-up/down resistor values for each serial port. The DIP switches are located at the side of wireless device server for easy setting.


To add a 120 Ω termination resistor, set switch 3 on the port’s assigned DIP switch to ON; set switch 3 to OFF (the default setting) to disable the termination resistor. To set the pull-up/down resistors to 150 KΩ, set switches 1 and 2 on the port’s assigned DIP switch to OFF. This is the default setting. To set the pull-up/down resistors to 1 KΩ, set switches 1 and 2 on the port’s assigned DIP switch to ON. Pull-Up/Down Resistors for the RS-485 Port SW1 (Serial 1) SW2 (Serial 2)

DIP 1 Pull-up resistor

ON OFF (Default)

1 KΩ 150 KΩ


DIP 2 Pull-down resistor 1 KΩ 150 KΩ

DIP 3 Terminal resistor 120 Ω N/A

Do not use the 1 KΩ setting while in RS-232 mode. Doing so will degrade the RS-232 signals and reduce the effective communication distance.

Software Installation Information For software installation, download the relative utilities from Moxa’s website: https://www.moxa.com/support/support_home.aspx?isSearchShow=1 •

Download the NPort Windows Driver Manager and install it as the driver to run with Real COM mode of the NPort Series.

Execute NPort Windows Driver Manager; then map the virtual COM ports on your Windows platform.

You may refer to the DB9 Male pin assignment section to loop back pin 2 and pin 3 for the RS-232 interface to carry out a self-test on the device.

Use HyperTerminal or a similar program (you may download Moxa’s program, called PComm Lite) to test whether the device is good or not.

Setting the IP Address The factory default IP settings are assigned as follows:

NPort IA5000A-I/O Series LAN Static



NPort IAW5000A-I/O Series LAN Static




WLAN IP Netmask Static If the NPort is configured for DHCP but the DHCP server cannot be found, the NPort will use factory default IP settings. NOTE

If you have forgotten the NPort’s IP address, use the Device Search Utility from your PC to locate the NPort. After searching the LAN for NPort units, the Device Search Utility will display the IP address of each unit.


(For the NPort IAW5000A-I/O Series) Ethernet Bridge Disabled (default): Only one network interface can be active at a time. If the Ethernet link is active, the WLAN will be inactive. If the WLAN is active, the Ethernet link will be inactive. Ethernet Bridge Enabled: The LAN and WAN will both be active. Go to the web console, find the network settings page, and set Ethernet Bridge to Enabled.

Open the web console to make the configuration changes as follows: STEP 1: Open your web browser. STEP 2: In the address bar, enter the default IP address (for the NPort IA5000A-I/O Series, it is; for the NPort IAW5000A-I/O Series, it is STEP 3: The web server will ask for the username and password before you log in. To configure the device server, you may use the default user/default password admin/moxa to log in the web console. STEP 4: For first-time use, click the Wizard in the left navigation panel. The wizard will prompt you to configure the IP address and basic settings. For other settings, use the factory defaults or modify the settings for your application.
