The key component of the system, the MX2 (Matrix 2.0) manages communication between PhysioTel and PhysioTel HD implants and the data acquisition computer. Networking Hardware DSI recommends using a dedicated network to assure uninterrupted data collection. Many configurations are possible; the simplest setup would be to use a router and a network switch to connect all PCs, MX2s, and the E2S-1. In this configuration the router will automatically provide network IP addresses so that manual settings will not be required for the computers, the MX2s, or the E2S-1. A configuration such as this may also be connected to the corporate network via a router to router connection. This can be arranged through your institutional IT group. Here are some typical examples: Router (Small Business Class) o Cisco RV130 4 port gigabit security router MX2 for Ponemah Telemetry Acquisition Hardware 1 Switch (Small Business Class) o Cisco SG200-08P 8 port gigabit with POE on 4 ports PhysioTel and PhysioTel HD Hardware Setup Please do not power any devices until directed in the appropriate step. As a convenience colored Cat5e Ethernet cables have been included and are referenced in the instructions below. Colored Cat5e Ethernet cables have been included and are referenced in the instructions below However, any color standard Cat5e or Cat6e Ethernet cables may be used in system set-up. 1. Connect the red Ethernet cable from the output of the router (1) to a non- PoE port on the switch (2). 2. Connect the orange Ethernet cable from the PC (3) to a non-poe* port on the switch (2). 3. Connect the yellow Ethernet cable from the J2-Ethernet jack on the E2S-1 (4) to a PoE port on the switch (2) (If a non-poe port is used, a power supply for the E2S-1 will be needed). 4. Connect the green Ethernet cable from the J1-Serial jack on the E2S-1 (4) to the J1-Output jack on the APR Power up the Router (1). This may take several minutes. 6. After the router has completed powering up, power up the switch (2). This may take several minutes. 7. After the switch is powered up, connect the blue Ethernet cable from the MX2 (Network Connection jack) to one of the PoE ports on the switch (2). 8. The MX2 should power can take up to 5 minutes. 9. Connect the individual receiver (RPC/RSC/RMC) cables to the Receiver Connections jacks (RCVR) on the back of the MX2 (5). 2 Telemetry Acquisition Hardware MX2 for Ponemah 5.200 ONEMAH PhysioTel and PhysioTel HD hardware set-up utilizing a dedicated network *Note: If a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch is not available, the individual components will need their own individual power supplies. If the router and switch are not powered up first, the MX2 will boot up without an IP address which will cause an error. A reboot of the MX2 will need to be performed in order for it to be assigned a proper IP address by the router. Configuring Firewall Settings Connecting the router to the PC creates a new Local Area Network connection. Critical communications through this connection may be inhibited if the Windows Firewall is not configured properly. To access the Windows Firewall settings: 1. Click the Start button - Control Panel - Windows Firewall 2. Configure the network connection as Home or work (private) networks MX2 (Matrix 2.0) The MX2 directs all of the communications in the system via Ethernet connectivity using DHCP networkability. Up to 8 implants can be configured to a single MX2. MX2 for Ponemah Telemetry Acquisition Hardware 3 Front Panel The MX2 has three indicator lights on the front panel. Indicator Color Status ERROR RED ERROR (usually caused by Power-On self-test error) repeat the power ON procedure STATUS AMBER Illuminated during the boot sequence POWER GREEN Power ON Back Panel All of the connections (RJ45 jacks) on the back panel of the MX2 are equipped with indicator lights. Receiver Connections Plug the receiver cables into the numbered RECEIVERCONNECTIONS jacks on back panel of the MX2 to establish a power and data connection. The RPC-3 model receiver has two J output jacks while the RPC-1 and RSC-1 model receivers have only one. The RSC-1 also has an AUX and an ANT jack on the back. The AUX is used in manufacturing to test the product. The ANT is where customers can plug in a custom made antenna. 4 Telemetry Acquisition Hardware MX2 for Ponemah 5.200 STATUS Green colored light on the left of each jack MODE ON OFF DESCRIPTION Valid receiver connected No connection ERROR Yellow colored light on the right of each jack MODE ON OFF DESCRIPTION Invalid device connected No connection Reset Switch The reset switch allows the user to manually reboot the MX2. The reset can also be used to assign a new IP address to the MX2 if the MX2 is currently set to a static IP address. The Reset switch is a recessed button on the back panel of the MX2 found next to the Network Connection jack. Function Directions Reboot Press and release within 5 seconds Requests a new IP address and reboots Press and hold 5 15 seconds Network Connection The Network Connection jack is the Ethernet port that is to be connected to the one of the PoE ports on the switch. Power The MX2 is the source of electrical power to all of the connected telemetry receivers; that power is supplied to the MX2 in one of two ways. The preferred configuration is to have all of the power supplied by the PoE (Power over Ethernet) connection from the network switch. The Power input connection is supplied in case a PoE switch is not available, an AC power supply will need to be purchased separately. The MX2 does not have an on/off switch. MX2 for Ponemah Telemetry Acquisition Hardware 5 APR-1/E2S-1 The APR-1, Ambient Pressure Reference, is a special type of barometer that measures atmospheric pressure providing dynamic corrections via a digital signal to the computer. An APR-1 is required when measuring pressure via pressure implants in order to compensate for the absolute (relative to a vacuum) pressure measurements taken by the implants. E2S is an acronym for Ethernet to Serial converter. The E2S-1 allows the APR-1 to be used in a network environment. APR-1 Ambient Pressure Reference The Ambient Pressure Reference Monitor (APR-1) is a special type of barometer that measures atmospheric pressure providing dynamic corrections via a digital signal to the computer. An APR-1 is required when measuring pressure via pressure transmitters in order to compensate for the absolute (relative to a vacuum) measurements taken by the transmitters. All local environmental pressure fluctuations and changes in ambient barometric pressure are automatically corrected against measurements obtained by the telemetry system. Thus, the APR-1 is a necessary component of each telemetry system where accurate pressure measurements are required. APR-1 Front Panel The front panel contains two indicator lights. The function of these indicators is described below: Ready A yellow indicator light illuminates when the pressure-sensing module is actively monitoring pressure. This will light shortly after power is applied to the APR-1. Power A green indicator light illuminates when power is applied to J1-OUTPUT jack of the back panel of the APR-1. The APR-1 does not have a separate on/off switch, the power is delivered via the E2S-1. Front panel of APR-1 (left), rear panel (right) J1-OUTPUT This is the communication port to the E2S-1. E2S-1 E2S is an acronym for Ethernet to Serial converter. The E2S-1 allows the APR-1 to be used in a network environment. Front Panel The front panel contains two indicator lights. The function of these is described below: Ready yellow indicator light MODE ON (continuous) ON (blinking) DESCRIPTION Power is on and the E2S-1 is functioning normally the E2S-1 has been located by a 6 Telemetry Acquisition Hardware MX2 for Ponemah 5.200 OFF software command No power IP address cannot be found IP address conflict Power A green indicator light illuminates when power is supplied via the J2-ETHERNET jack from a PoE switch. Front panel of E2S-1 (left), rear panel (right) E2S-1 Rear panel J1-Serial Plug the cable from the APR-1 into this jack. It provides a path for the barometric pressure signal to pass to the E2S-1 and also for the power from the E2S-1 to the APR-1. J2-Ethernet WARNING: Do Not mistake the J2 Ethernet port with J1 Serial port. Incorrectly plugging the wrong Ethernet cable into the wrong port may cause serious damage to your network devices. Plug the cable from the Ethernet network into this jack. It provides a path for the barometric pressure signal to pass to the E2S-1 and also for the power from a POE capable network (if available) to pass into the E2S-1. Power The Power input connection is supplied in case a PoE switch is not available. An AC power supply can be purchased separately. The E2S-1 does not have an on/off switch. Telemetry Receivers Multiple receiver options exist and selection depends on the implant model and the caging setup. Listed below are the receivers that are compatible with the MX2. Information about maximum receiver range, antenna capability, application and frequency is detailed for each receiver. Receiver RPC-1 RPC-3 RSC-1 Maximum Signal Range* Sufficient coverage for up to 16 in (or 41cm) Antenna Capability Frequency Application Single Internal 455kHz Typical Cage Setup Dual Internal 455kHz & 18MHz Single Internal or Auxiliary External 455kHz Multiple implants in the same animal or paired housing use cases Supplementary for larger cage sizes or for unique cage configurations RLA3000 Axis dependent Single Internal 455kHz Operating Room or Special Caging *Range is highly dependent on telemetry model. The miniature implant size typically has a 20cm range, the small animal implant size typically has a 25cm range, and the large animal implant size typically has a 1.5m range. MX2 for Ponemah Telemetry Acquisition Hardware 7 Receiver Functionality The receivers are all powered by the connection with the MX2. When connected, the configuration software will detect the model and serial number and configure the software appropriately for all telemetry hardware. All receivers have similar jacks and indicator lights. RPC-1 The Receiver Plastic Cage (RPC-1) is used to collect data from any 455 khz associated PhysioTel implant. The RPC-1 can pick up the signal from the implant or from a neighboring cage so it is important to put enough distance between them so the signals do not interfere. The RPC-1 specifications are as follows: Pickup Frequency Size Power Requirements 455kHz 12.9 x 8.9 x 1.3 inches (328 x 227 x 33 mm) Powered by the MX2 Illustration of the of the front (top) and back (bottom) panels of the RPC-1 J1-OUTPUT The receiver output connection to the MX2. RPC-3 The RPC-3 is a dual frequency receiver. It contains two antennas and is used to collect signals from 2 animals simultaneously which are pair housed or from two implants in one animal. One of the signals must be from an 18 MHz PhysioTel implant and the other from a 455 khz PhysioTel implant. The RPC-3 can still pick up the signal from the implant or from a neighboring cage so it is important to put enough distance between them so the signals do not interfere. This receiver is different from the RPC-1 in that is has additional antennas that enable it to monitor two separate frequencies. The RPC-3 specifications are as follows: Pickup Frequency Size Power Requirements 18Mhz and 455kHz 12.9 x 8.9 x 1.3 inches (328 x 227 x 33 mm) Powered by the MX2 8 Telemetry Acquisition Hardware MX2 for Ponemah 5.200 Illustration of the of the front (top) and back (bottom) panels of the RPC-3 Enable Button The enable button on the front of the RPC-3 allows the user to turn off the receiver. Power will still be provided to the receiver, it temporarily disrupts the connection between the receiver and the MX2. This feature prevents the receiver from detecting information when an animal or cage is removed from a rack. J1-OUTPUT The receiver output connection to the MX2. The J1 jack is intended to be used with transmitters using the 455 khz transmission frequency. J2-OUTPUT The receiver output connection to the MX2. The J2 jack is intended to be used with transmitters using the 18 Mhz transmission frequency. RSC-1 The Receiver Special Cage (RSC-1) has the same functionality as the RPC-1 but has a much smaller profile. The RSC-1 is used in special situations where the RPC-1 is too large or will not fit close to the animal. Applications that are considered special situations could be adding a running wheel to the existing cage setup, using a metabolic cage or a large maze. The RSC-1 also has the function to attach any external antenna. Some researchers may have interest in developing their own custom antenna. An engineering based manual is available by request to instruct users on how to interface their design to the RSC-1. Photo of RSC-1 as viewed from the front Photo of back of RSC-1 The RSC-1 specifications are as follows: Pickup Frequency Size 455Hz 3.3 x 1.2 x 5.25 inches (84 x 30 x 132 mm) MX2 for Ponemah Telemetry Acquisition Hardware 9 Power Requirements Powered by the MX2 Indicator Lights POWER The power light indicates that the receiver is connected to the MX2 and powered appropriately. The light is either on or off. CARRIER The carrier light indicates when the receiver can detect an implant signal. The light is either on or off, so depending on the quality of the signal users may observe what appears to be blinking if the quality of the signal is poor. SIGNAL The signal light is only available on the RSC-1. It has a more gradual transition from off to on which is useful in tuning remote antennas for custom antenna work. J1-OUTPUT The receiver output connection to the MX2. 10 Telemetry Acquisition Hardware MX2 for Ponemah 5.200 Telemetry Acquisition Interface Telemetry Hardware Selection The PhysioTel and PhysioTel HD Telemetry system is a specific Application Interface within the Ponemah software.
