To Set the Panel Network Settings

Note: The control panel and frame must be on the same subnet to communicate properly.
Note: The Acuity Rack Panel ships in DHCP mode by default. The IP address that it has been assigned by your network is shown on the diagnostic display on the front of the server.
  1. Press HOME three times to place the control panel in diagnostic mode.
  2. Press HOME > Setup > Network Setup.
    Tip: Set Defaults on (On) to set the control panel to the default IP address and to look for the frame at the default IP address of the frame.
  3. In the Frame area, enter the IP Address of the frame using a keyboard or the keypad on the Global Memory module.
  4. In the Panel area, enter the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway of the control panel using a keyboard of the keypad on the Global Memory module.
  5. Use the Panel ID knob to select the role you want to assign to the control panel.
    • Master Panel — assign the control panel as the master panel in a MultiPanel setup, or the only control panel.
    • Satellite Panel X — assigns the control panel as one of the satellite panels in a MultiPanel setup.
  6. Press Save and Yes to reboot the control panel and use the new network settings.
  7. Open a web browser and navigate to the IP address of the switcher frame. You are prompted to enter a user name and password. The defaults are user and password.
  8. Click Other... > Network.
  9. In the Panel area, enter the IP address for the panel you are connecting to the frame.
    • Master Panel — enter the IP address of the master panel in the IP Address Master Panel field.
    • Satellite Panel — enter the IP address of a satellite panel in the IP Address Satellite X field.
    Note: The IP address for the control panel must be the same for the satellite number on the control panel and frame. For example, if you assign a control panel Satellite 5, you must enter the IP address of that control panel in the IP Address Satellite 5 field.
  10. Click Change and Reboot.
