Product Manual Excerpt

GENERAL DESCRIPTION The Remote I/O Modules, which include Driver and Receiver circuit boards, provide a serial, long-distance, communications interface between local and remote I/O locations. The Remote I/O Modules features and benefits are summarized in Table 1. The Remote I/O modules support two types of serial communications interfaces: 2-twisted pair and RS-232-C (modem). The twisted pair interface consists of two unidirectional data lines (Transmit Data and Receive Data) through which data and control signals can be transferred 10,000 feet (3 km) at rates up to 57.6K baud. The RS-232-C (modem) interface allows a Remote I/O Station to be located at a distance (from a Central Processing Unit (CPU), or Local I/O Station) limited only by the specifications of the modem employed and I/O response time requirements. Signal definitions are as described by the EIA RS-232C standard; six baud rates are selectable by the user, ranging from 110 to 57.6K baud. The modules can support blocks of 128 or 256 I/O references; the block sizes are jumper-selectable on the Driver module. However, the user must reserve 8 of these I/O references for Series Six status information, leaving blocks of 240 or 496 I/O references, respectively, for general purpose inputs and outputs. Another user option allows the Remote output points to hold their last state in the event of a CPU or communications link failure, and/or to allow the CPU to continue running during a fault or a parity error in the Remote station, or a link failure between the Driver and Receiver. These module also contain diagnostic circuitry and Light- Emitting Diodes (LED S) that indicate a failure has occurred in the Remote I/O Driver, the serial communicaions link, or the Remote station (including the Remote I/O Receiver). These LED s operate only when the module is installed in a properly powered I/O rack. NOTE Remote I/O Driver and Receiver modules, having model numbers IC600BF801A and IC600BF901A are not compatible with their s u c c e s s o r s , BF801B a n d 9 0 1 B . Consequently, a model A module cannot be utilized in the same remote I/O configuration with a model B module. TABLE 1.

Modems must be truly asynchronous at the desired baud rate. (Some modems are claimed to be asynchronous but in actuality place restrictions on data flow.) The following RS-232-C signals are used: PIN SIGNAL 1 Chassis Ground (modem side only) 2 Tx Data 3 Rx Data 7 Signal Ground In order to utilize auto-synchronization, some modems need to be configured according to the data format used. With Remote I/O, transmission can be in any of the following formats (user-selectable): 110 Baud, 12 bits/char. with either parity 110 Baud, 12 bits/char. with no parity* 300 1200 2400 Baud, 11 bits/char. with either parity 9600 11 bits/char. with no parity 19.2K 57.6K (Factory setting is 57.6K baud, 11 bits/char. ODD parity.) *When no parity is selected, verticle checksum error-checking is still in place. At 1200 baud, Racal-Vadic 3450 Series modems work well when configured for 11 bit characters. Modems which require at least one character time delay between messages (not truly asynchronous operation) may not function in Remote I/O systems. FIGURE 1.
