How to access ION9000 through self-discovery over a network?

Published date: 12 September 2019

Issue
User needs to Access the ION900 Webpage through self-discovery.

Product Line 
ION9000

Cause
Windows Explorer can be used to locate and access the meter on Local Area Network (LAN).
Considerations for using self-discovery:
The meter must be connected directly to the network using only a cable or switches, and not going through a router.
The computer must run Windows 7 or later with IPv6 enabled.
The computer and the meter must be on the same subnet.
The meter’s IP address for self-discovery over Ethernet does not need to be configured. An IPv6 address is automatically generated from the meter’s MAC address and self-discovery takes place over IPv6.


Resolution
1. Connect the meter’s Ethernet port to the LAN.
2. Start Windows Explorer.
3. Click Network. The connected network devices display.
4. Locate your meter with the name <Device Name>-<Last 6 digits of MAC address>.
5. Double-click the icon to open the meter webpages.
