Connecting a Polaris to an Ethernet Network

Despite being the new light capital ship, the RSI Polaris is a complex beast. The corvette-class vehicle is equipped with a full armament of turrets and torpedoes. Its primary use is as a naval patrol ship, but it can also perform light strike missions. As a refueling vessel, it can carry one fighter or light bomber and a support ship.

Polaris FAQ

There are several ways to connect a Polaris to an Ethernet network. The first method is to use an RS485 to Ethernet converter on the host computer. An example of such a converter is the DAE WSC200. This allows a single Polaris to monitor two subpanels with a shared power source, while two Polaris must be used when the power source is not shared. The network topology must not include loops or form a tree.

The next method involves connecting a Polaris to a computer with an Ethernet port. If the power source is shared, one Polaris can monitor two subpanels at once. For non-shared power sources, two Polaris are required. You must also ensure that the network topology does not have a loop or star topology, as this can cause problems with communication. Finally, you must configure the RS485 to Ethernet converter with the appropriate IP address and set the appropriate parameters to connect to the network.

Lastly, make sure that the Polaris is connected to a host computer that has an Ethernet port. You can also monitor two subpanels from a single Polaris, but you should make sure that the network topology does not include star or tree topologies, as this will cause errors. And of course, you must ensure that all the necessary parameters are configured correctly in the RS485 to Ethernet converter. It may be possible to monitor multiple subpanels with a single device, but this is unlikely to be a reliable solution.

When you want to monitor two subpanels, use a single Polaris. This way, you can monitor two subpanels with the same power source. However, if you want to monitor more than one, you need to use two Polaris. Moreover, you must set up the RS485 to Ethernet converter with the right IP address. Otherwise, you will have to make sure that the RS485 to Ethernet converter is properly configured to communicate with your hosts.

There are a number of errors that may occur when you use the RS485 to Ethernet converter. If your host computer does not have an Ethernet port, you can use a RS485 to Ethernet converter. Using the converter on a host computer is recommended as it will provide a better network topology. In addition, it should be compatible with multiple subpanels. It will also allow you to monitor more than one subpanel.

The Polaris can be connected to host computers without RS485 ports. Moreover, it can monitor up to two subpanels. There are also some common problems. The interface may be reversed or unstable. The kWh value displayed by the Polaris may not be accurate. The voltage input indicators don’t light up. The kWh reading is not accurate. The RS485 to Ethernet converter should be configured with an IP address.

If your host computer does not have RS485 ports, you can connect the Polaris to the computer through a USB or Ethernet port. The Polaris can also monitor multiple subpanels. If the subpanels are shared, one Polaris can monitor all three. If the power source is shared, you can use two. In either case, you need to use two Polaris devices. If you have more than one subpanel, two Polaris devices are required.

The Polaris is compatible with host computers that lack an RS485 port. In addition, it can be connected to two subpanels that share the same power source. If the subpanels are not shared, two Polaris should be used. RS485 to Ethernet converters should be configured properly. You should be able to monitor more than one subpanel at a time. The RS485 to Ethernet conversions should also have an IP address and be set up correctly.

If you are flying domestically, you do not have access to the Polaris Lounge. If you are flying in business or first class, you should avoid reversing the polarity of the cable. The RS485 bus is polarity-sensitive. If you reverse the sex of one of the devices, the bus will collapse. Consequently, you must use the correct sex orientation to avoid RS485 communications failures.
