Remove the Kogna Board from the anti-static packaging in a static safe environment.

Note: immediately before touching any electronic component, always discharge any static electricity you may have by touching an earth ground, such as the metal chassis of a PC.

Kogna may operate powered from the USB by inserting JP2. Total power must be < 0.5A for USB powered operation. Otherwise remove JP2 and connect a +5V power supply to the Kogna's 4 pin Molex connector. This connector is the same Pinout as a PC Disk Drive power connector. The +12V is not required for operation, it is routed internally through the board to several of the connectors. See the on-line help section titled Hardware/Connector Description for more information.

Note: Kogna may at times draw as little as 0.25 Amps from the +5V supply. Some PC power supplies will not function without a minimum load. In these cases an appropriate power resistor (~10 ohm 5 Watt) should be added across the +5V. Additionally, most ATX power supplies require pins 14 and 15 on the main 20 pin power connector to be shorted.

Note: it is NOT recommended to use the same power supply that is powering your PC and Hard drives to power the Kogna. Motor noise and power surges have the possibility to cause damage or loss of data within the PC.

Connect the USB or turn on the +5V supply. Two green LEDs should blink rapidly for a few seconds (Kogna is checking if the Host is requesting a Flash Recovery during this time), and then the LEDs should remain steady.

Now connect an Ethernet cable from Kogna to your Network Router and run KMotion.exe. By default KMotion.exe uses any KFLOP or Kogna found by searching Ethernet or USB. If only one Kogna board is connected on the same network as the PC (or only one KFLOP on the PC's USB ports) connection should be automatic.

If Kogna is connected directly to the PC without a Router to automatically assign IP Addresses with DHCP then the IP Addresses of the PC and Kogna will need to be assigned manually.

Recommended addresses for the PC and Kogna are and

To set the PC IP Address in Windows 10 goto Control Panel | Network and Sharing | Change Adapter Settings | Right click - Ethernet | Properties | Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)

Select Properties then select Use the following IP Address and enter the IP Address

Note the current PC IP Address can be displayed by entering the ipconfig command in a Windows Command Prompt.

To set Kogna's IP Address see Kogna's USB UART COM Port

Otherwise see here.
