WEB-Switch 1216E / Automatic Antenna switch
The Webswitch 1216E are discontinued and replaced by 1216HWEB-switch 1216E is a remote controlled switch with 5 relay outputs 230V/16A which can be controlled independently via the built in web server from any computer connected to the Internet. It can also be configured as a automatic antenna switch connected to the radios CAT interface . It's perfect suited for controlling coax relays, switching the Rig on/off or maybe the Power Amp. No PC is needed like in USB switches everything is built in the box, the WEB-switch is connected directly to the local network. If the WEB-switch is located behind a NAT-router you need to set up a port forwarding in the router to the WEB-switch to make it reachable from the outside. The WEB-switch default IP is 192.168.0.236 and the built in WEB-server is using port 80. IP-address can be changed via ARP with the small PC-software called IP-setup which you can download on this page. IP-setup can also be used to update the firmware. An important feature is that the switch is remembering the Relays statuses even after a power failure. The relay statuses is indicated by LED:s. The Settings is protected by a password.
Down below follows more info about the WEB-Switch.
The Software IP-Setup is used to change the IP-address of the WEB-switch. There is no other user Interfaces so we need to use the TCP/IP Network to set the IP-address. It's done from the IP-setup with a encapsulated standard protocol ARP. When you start up the program ( no installation needed) you will see the dialog below. When you enter the Serial number of the WEB-switch, IP-Setup calculates the MAC-address <>automatically. The Serial number is available from a sticker on the bottom of the switch. Enter the network parameters on in resp. box. To make the function more secure you need to program it within 60 s from restart. That's why you always should disconnect the WEB-Switch from power for a few seconds before pressing "Apply" to confirm the new settings.
The IP-Setup software only works 100% with Windows XP.
The IP-Setup software is here
programming succeeded the box below will show up.
Use your Internet browser to connect to the new IP-Address.
If you will
use the WEB-Switch for remote control over the Internet it will most of the
times be placed behind a NAT-router, witch means it will not be directly
accessible from the Internet. Fixed IP-address is also not very common witch
is an other problem. The most common solution to this is to use
port forwarding in the router and register a DynDns account (free).
At www.dyndns.com you can register a account, witch gives you a dns host name witch can be used for accessing the WEB-switch from the Internet. The router at the remote site must also be programmed to send the IP-address to DynDNS. When you have done that a call to the WEB-Switch can look like the example below.
Almost every router from the commonly used brands supports the DynDNS functionality ( even the cheapest ones).
Good luck with the remote control....
internal firmware can be updated via the
software. The .BIN file should be updated first and after that the .ROM file.
Download the files to your computer (Desktop) and start the IP-Setup. Select
the files Update the BIN file
first by clicking on the "Update" button, when it's done, update the
WEB/ROM file by clicking the associated button. Before Updating check that
the right IP-number is shown in the "Current IP address" box. If not go to
the "IP-address" dialogue and change to the correct IP-address. Updating
firmware is only possible when connected to the same LAN, not over the
