My Promag 400 has an Ethernet port. Do I need it? Actually, my flow meter is HART, so I don't know why it has this Ethernet port built in!
Expert’s answer: Web server with Promag 400!
You are wise to come to me, young grasshopper. I have all the answers. Okay, not all of them, but this one, yeah. You get a web server with Promag 400, and I promise, it will give you good things. Or at least one good thing.
You want this connection because it’ll make your setup soooo much easier. With an Ethernet cable and a laptop, you can control the world – of your little device, I mean. It has an IP address, and you can easily check out all your configurations using your friendly neighborhood web browser like Chrome or Firefox.
The standard address is 192.168.1.212, so you need to set your laptop to a different address, like 192.168.1.250. Now you can connect to your meter using the browser. Just type its IP address into the browser and bing bang boom! You found the configuration page!
The super-secret special access code is 0000. Yeah. Real original. Please change it. But remember what you changed it to, or you’re stuck! Good luck, Chuck!
