What is the default IP address of an M340 PLC?

Schneider products equipped with an Ethernet port have a default IP address which is derived from its MAC address (unique identifier assigned by the manufacturer).
 
For an M340 PLC, the default IP address format is 84.x.x.x where:
 
84 = fixed value
x.x.x = the last three fields of the default IP address.
These last three fields are obtained by converting the last three hexadecimal bytes from the MAC address into decimal values.
 
Example:
 
The MAC address for an M340 PLC is 000053121AC4.
 
The conversion of the last three bytes from the MAC address into decimal values gives:
 
16#12=10#18
16#1A=10#26
16#C4=10#196
Therefore, the default IP address for this M340 PLC is 84.18.26.196.
 
Notes:
 
For more information on this subject, refer to the Unity Pro online help (Deriving IP parameters from a MAC address).
 
The MAC address is marked on the module.
 
The method for deriving the IP address of BMXNOE0100 and BMXNOE0110 modules is exactly the same:
