MR51e is a single door PoE panel that must be controlled through a Mercury controller. For the MR51e panel to communicate with the controller, you must set the MR51e panel to use either the Public DHCP (recommended) or the Static IP addressing mode.

Before you begin

Make sure of the following:
  • If not already done, load the MR51e panels with the supported firmware version.
  • Enroll the controller on your Synergis™ unit.
  • If the MR51e panels are using the Static IP addressing mode, download the MSC MR51e Address Configuration Tool from the Mercury website.

What you should know

For Mercury integration through Synergis™ Softwire, you can use the MR51e panel with only two addressing modes: the Public DHCP, and Static IP.
NOTE: Reader port 1 on the MR51e panel can support up to two OSDP readers.


  1. Do one of the following:
  2. In Config Tool, open the Access control task, and click Roles and units.
  3. Select the Synergis unit, and add the MR51e panels.
    For more information, see the steps for adding downstream panels in Enrolling Mercury controllers on the Synergis unit.
