Software tools for the BRAINBOX® ETHERNET SYSTEM.
A BRAINBOX® System consists of an Interface to the PC, like the ETHERNET-102 (V2) Interface, connected to one or more BRAINBOX® Devices. The system is designed to be very flexible, a combination of devices can be connected to a dedicated 4-wire bus with power/communication to fulfill the requirements of a specific investigation.
There are 2 types of busses in a BRAINBOX® system. The BRAINBUS is the device connection at the floating (patient applied) level with 5V power. The BRAINNET is at the non-floating level with 24V power. These busses are transparent to the ETHERNET-102 (V2) and of no concern at all to the software programmer.
The cable, needed for connecting the ETHERNET-102 (V2) INTERFACE tot the PC is depending of the used network configuration.
On this page the interface is named as ETHERNET-102 (V2) INTERFACE but also all is working on the ETHERNET-102 (V2) INTRFACE.
The simple configuration shown in the Figure above represents a configuration with only a PC and ETHERNET-102 (V2) INTERFACE. In this case a UTP CAT5 cross cable is needed. When the ETHERNET-102 (V2) INTERFACE is connecting to a switch, a cross cable or a patch cable can be use. The switch will make the correct connection.

The communication between the PC-Application and a BRAINBOX® System is very simple. The PC-Application sends Frames to the IP address of the ETHERNET-102 (V2) to control its settings and the settings of the devices and receives Frames that contain the Device Data. The way to make connection and a overview of the available Frame Types, can be found in this document: ETHERNET-102 Software Manual.
Factory defaults for the ETHERNET-102 (V2) Interface are:
