In this section we will cover how to configure HID Aero device and use it with CredoID.
- If attached, unscrew the four corner casing screws.
- Remove the X1100 casing to access the battery jumper and the end of line termination jumpers.
- Set the battery jumper J4 to ON.
- Set IO Module Port 1 and 2 end of line termination jumpers J5 and J9 to IN, only if the X1100 will be the end of communication bus.
- Replace the casing and secure with the supplied four corner casing screws.
The static RAM and the real time clock are backed up by a lithium battery when input power is removed. This battery should be replaced annually.
- Connect an ethernet cable to the device and enable factory default settings, by turning DIP switch 2 to ON. This will enable factory default communication parameters.
- Network: static IP address: 192.168.0.251
- Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
- Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
- DNS Server: 192.168.0.1
- Set DIP switch 1 to ON. This will enable default user name admin and password password.
- Open a web browser and connect to device over default IP address: http://192.168.0.251
Create an optional web interface user if you want to change device settings later.

- HID VertX: communication protocol for HID VertX device modules (V100, V200, V300).
- Baud rate:
- HID Aero baud rate can be set using DIP switches
- HID VertX default baud rate 38400
Only one communication protocol type supported per port.
