CAUTION: ELECTROSTATIC SENSITIVE DEVICE

Use ESD precautions for safe handling.

Before removing the card from the anti-staticprotective packaging:

Discharge any static electricity buildup on your body by touching a large grounded metal surface or the metal chassis on equipment connected to earth ground by a 3-wirepower cord.

Avoid touching the gold connectors or other parts on the card except as necessary to set the configuration jumpers.

Remove AC power from the computer before inserting the card.

Retain the ESD bag for handling the card.

Chapter 1: General Information

Introduction

The 3PCI2 Dual Port serial interface card is designed to work with Windows based IBM compatible computers with a PCI bus. The card is Plug and Play compatible which permits the Windows Operating System and driver to set the addresses and IRQ used by the card.

If you are developing your own software, make sure that the communications routines support Windows communication drivers and a wide range of COM ports (Com1 to Com16 or higher).

Quick Start

CAUTION: ELECTROSTATIC SENSITIVE DEVICE

1.Before removing the card from the anti-staticprotective packaging, discharge any static electricity on yourself.

2.Set the Operating Mode Jumpers for each port to match the mode desired. Use the Jumper/Mode Table in Chapter 2.

3.Unplug the computer Power Cord to prevent accidentally turning the computer on during installation.

4.Install the Card, replace the cover.

5.Reconnect the Power Cord.

6.While power is off, connect your cables (or wait Step 15).

7.Start the computer (as Administrator 2000/XP).

8.Insert the driver disc in your CD-ROMdrive.

9.Wait until new hardware is detected.

10.Proceed with Installation according to your Operating System. See Chapter 3.

11.Check for new Com ports in Device Manager.

12.Select Driver Settings for DTR Control.

13.Set Com number as needed.

14.Prepare your cable connections to match the connector pinouts. See Chapter 5 (RS-232) or 6 (RS-422 or RS-485).

15.Shut down your computer before connecting the cables.

16.Connect your RS-232orRS-422/RS-485cables.

17.Power up your computer.

18.Verify operation of each port with your hardware.

Chapter 2: Setup

Inspection

Your 3PCI2 serial card was tested for proper operation before packaging. It should be in perfect mechanical and electrical condition upon receipt.

CAUTION: ELECTROSTATIC SENSITIVE DEVICE

Use ESD precautions for safe handling.

Before removing the card from the anti-staticprotective packaging:

Discharge any static electricity buildup on your body by touching a large grounded metal surface or the metal chassis on equipment connected to earth ground by a 3-wirepower cord.

Avoid touching the gold connectors or other parts on the card except as necessary to set the configuration jumpers.

Remove AC power from the computer before inserting the card.

Retain the ESD bag for handling the card.

Save the packaging for storage or shipping.

Before Starting…

The card is normally pre-configuredforRS-232operation.

Check/Set 3 operating Mode/Jumpers for each port.

Device Driver Setting for RS-485Mode:

After driver installation, set DTR Operation to RS-485 Mode.

See Chapter 4, Setting Driver Options.
