How do I configure LD5 (C Variant) COM ports & Ethernet output?

The LD5 has three serial COM ports (9-Pin D-Type female). All three COM ports are RS232 and RS422 compatible. There is also an Ethernet LAN port (RJ45) supporting TCPIP data-communications (Static or DHCP addressing) .

To configure the the serial COM ports, from the home screen navigate to Config > Config > I/O then select one of the available three COM ports. 

Navigate to Config > Config > I/O then select one of the available three COM ports

Each COM port is capable of outputting different types of data streams GNSS NMEAa, GNSS NMEAb, LBand RTCMa, LBand RTCMb and  LBand Config, MF RTCM is available if an MF card is installed. Each port can be configured individually, allowing for different output configuration settings (Protocol, Baud Rate, Data Bits, Parity and Stop Bits).

GNSS NMEAa NMEA output Typically the calculated position or stats output. NMEAa and NMEAb streams can configured independently to consist of different NMEA log types:- GGA, VTG , GSA etc...

LBand RTCMa Veripos RTCM output VERIPOS RTCM correction as selected. The RTCMa and RTCMb stream can be consist of different Reference stations depending on requirements.
LBand RTCMb Veripos RTCM output VERIPOS RTCM correction as selected. The RTCMa and RTCMb stream can be consist of different Reference stations depending on requirements.
LBand Config Control Information from Veripos L Band receiver Can be used under the instruction of VERIPOS for troubleshooting.
MF RTCM RTCM from IALA Beacon Only applicable if a MF IALA beacon card is installed. If selected this will be the single station from nearby IALA station (when in range and received).

If the LD5 is required to be interfaced to using the TCPIP socket, the table below detail each data-stream type and its TCPIP port. These IP Port Numbers are not configurable. The TCPIP ports are TCPIP Server Sockets (Host). To connect to these ports the TCPIP client must be configured to connect to the LD5 IP address and the port number.

Output Data Stream IP Port Number
RTCMa  9001
RTCMb  9002
L Band Config  9003
GNSS NMEAa  19016 
GNSS NMEAb  19017
MF RTCM ( C3 Model only)  9031
