  • This assumes that the controller maintains factory default settings; including passcodes. If the passcodes have been edited and lost, please contact support@eurotherm.co.uk.

    WARNING! Entering engineering level will effectively turn off both alarm and control outputs. Please ensure that it is safe to enter configuration mode before doing so.


    Note: the following description is based on windows XP. Windows ‘Vista’ is similar.

    Before the instrument can be connected, it is necessary to determine the IP address of the unit.


    Step 1: Press

    Step 2: Press to highlight ‘Log in’.

    Step 3: Press to access the log in screen.

    Step 4: Press until the display shows ‘Engineer’.

    Step 5: Press twice to select ‘Engineer’ and access the password field.

    Step 6: Use and to navigate the alphanumeric keypad, using to select the highlighted character. The default passcode is “100”.

    Step 7: Press when you have entered the complete passcode.

    Step 8: Use to navigate to ‘Yes’.

    Step 9: Press to accept.

    The main configuration menu will be displayed if the passcode entered is correct.

    Step 10: Press to select ‘Network

    Step 11: Press twice

    Step 12: Make a note of the nanodac’s IP address (Default IP = 192.168.111.222)

    Once the Ethernet link has been correctly installed, carry out the following actions at the pc:

    Step 13: Click on ‘Start

    Step 14: Click on ‘Control Panel’. (If Control Panel opens in ‘Category View’ select ‘Classic View’ instead.)

    Step 15: Double-click on ‘iTools’.

    Step 16: Click on the TCP/IP tab in the Registry settings configuration.

    Step 17: Click on ‘Add...’ The ‘New TCP/IP Port’ dialogue box opens.

    Step 18: Type-in a name for the port, then click ‘Add...’ again

    Step 19: Type the IP address of the unit in the ‘Edit Host’ box which appears. Click 'OK'.

    Step 20: Check the details in the ‘New TCP/IP Port’ box. Click ‘OK’.

    Step 21: Click on ‘OK’ in the ‘Registry settings’ box to confirm the new port.

    Once the Ethernet link to the instrument has been verified, iTools can be started and the instrument can be added to the application

    Step 22: In iTools, click

    Step 23: Click ‘Ok

    As the search progresses, any instruments detected by the scan appear as thumbnails (faceplates) in the ‘Panel Views’ area, normally located at the bottom of the iTools screen. As shown below:

    Hello Pinias,
    What specific issue are you having with Windows 7?
    Quite often the itools applet is not visible in the Windows control panel so you have to select Large or Small icons under the 'View By:' (Top right hand side)
    Regards, Jon
