The new WIN ethernet master does away with the requirement of the current WIN master to have the receiver close by the equipment being monitored. The master is simply configured and plugged into an available ethernet socket.

In the network configuration of the WIN ethernet masters, you can choose between two options:

  • Receive IP address automatically via DHCP
  • use static IP address

Routing module

Under "Connection Status" all WIN masters which are integrated in the WIN database are displayed, with connection type and connection status.

  • Quick overview of the integrated receiver and their status in the WIN network.


All WIN devices included in the WIN database can be deleted individually with respective data using the settings menu.


The exchange function in the activation menu enables you to transfer the configuration of a WIN master (USB) to the WIN ethernet master.

  • All WIN slaves configured to the WIN master (USB) will in future send their information to the WIN ethernet master.


The “WERMA WIN 4 Server Service” runs in the background as soon as the PC is turned on.

  • The WIN data is written to the WIN database without the WIN software running or a user being logged on.

The “WERMA WIN 4 Connector Service” runs in the background as soon as the PC is turned on.

  • Collected WIN data through the WIN Master will be transferred to the “WERMA WIN 4 Server Service” without the WIN software running or a user being logged on.

Configure the switch conditions of the WIN slave control. You can choose between the standard (default) “Activate only the signal tower” and “Initiate additional pins 2 to 5”.

  • Instigate processes to eliminate wastage.
  • Initiate or switch off equipment in order to produce more efficiently.
  • Use the signal tower to visualise the complete status overview of the shopfloor.

Control Module for WIN slave control

In the Control Module you can define rules with certain logic functions with which you can switch or control a WIN slave control. You can use as an input signal for the logic function those WIN slaves forming part of the network.

Logic functions:

  • “AND” - Each tier must be in the selected status.
  • “OR” - At least one tier must have the defined status.
  • “NOR” - No tier may be in the defined status.
  • Enter custom logic function. You can make up more complex rules by using the functions “AND”, “OR”, “NOT” and brackets.

Control Station

Each WIN slave control can be switched or controlled manually. You can choose between “Off“, “On” or “Blinking“.

Further information is available in the WIN manual.


Report and export function
