Two female 10/100-Mbit Ethernet connections are provided on the FX30E/FX60E. These connections are capable of running at either 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps; the controller automatically adjusts to either speed. This means the FX30E/FX60E can exist on the same network with a mixture of 10BaseT and 100BaseTX hardware connected to a smart 10/100 hub capable of adjusting to the devices it supports.

Two RJ-45 connectors labeled LAN1 and LAN2 are provided for the Ethernet connections (Figure 1). Use a standard Ethernet patch cable for connecting to a hub or Ethernet switch. An activity LED for each Ethernet port is visible, labeled LAN1 and LAN2 on the cover.

The factory-default IP address for LAN1 is By default, LAN2 is disabled.

Note: Typically, you only use LAN1 (primary port). If you have a specific application for isolating a driver's network traffic to a separate local area network (LAN), you can use LAN2. Do not use LAN2 as the primary port.
