HDL gateway is connection between LAN port and RS485 (HDL): when HDL/IP gateway of the device is on, devices in the RS485 bus can exchange data with devices in the Ethernet as if they were in one bus. UDP protocol used on the side of the Ethernet-network.
Work of HDL/IP-gateway is possible only on devices with HDL interface:
The easiest way to activate the mode of HDL/IP-gateway is in the Server tab of i3 lite config.
There must be no modules for HDL in i3 lite project. Without these modules a server works only as a gateway and can't control HDL Buspro devices directly.
The second way is to install HDL IP Gateway module in i3 lite config.
In this case you can install any HDL modules, a server can control devices in the HDL bus.
