Installation of an Ethernet Sensor Net Connect

If you use dynamic IP addresses and a DHCP server

This is the most common case. You don’t have to set anything up.
The Net Connect sensor will automatically take on an IP address and be recognized by Net Device Manager or ThermoscanIP

To find the assigned address, use Microchip Ethernet Discoverer, which will display a list of all the Sensor Net Connect devices on your network. (You must close this software to use automatic detection in Net Device Manager or Thermoscan IP)
