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.

REMOTE I/O RECEIVER (Part 3 of 3) Remote I/O Modules GEK-83537 INSTALLATION Before installing the Remote I/O modules, review Table 2 to determine if the factory-set configurations are suitable for the Remote I/O application. Optional configurations are also indicated in Table 2. Step-by-step considerations are described in this section. Modems being used must be compatible with Remote I/O, see specifications (pages 2 and 3). TABLE 2. THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE INSTALLING MODULES FACTORY OPTIONAL STEP CONSIDERATION CONFIGURATION CONFIGURATION 1 Block Size 120 Inputs/120 Outputs 248 Inputs/248 Outputs 2 Block Address Switches 8 Blocks of 240 I/O References to 4 Blocks of 496 I/O References to choose from choose from 3 Number of I/O Racks in 2 or more I/O Racks in Remote 1 I/O Rack (Containing Receiver) Remote I/O Station Station in Remote Station 4 Communications Interface Twisted-Pair up to 10,000 ft (3 km) RS-232 (Modem) a s link (Requires High-Capacity I/O Rack) 5 Communications Failure: STOP CPU Allow CPU to Run CPU Status 6 Communications Failure: Turn all outputs OFF Hold all outputs at last state Remote I/O Status 7 Remote I/O Parity Error STOP CPU Allow CPU to Run Remote I/O Modules GEK-83537 Step 1 - Block Size To obtain the Remote I/O modules for a block size of 496 inputs/outputs, set jumper 2 on the Driver module to position 2-4 (Refer to Figure 2, User Item 2) Step 2 - Address Switches If the block size equals 240, the user can select one of eight blocks of I/O References; the selection is made at the I/O Rack where the Driver is to be installed. Adjacent to the module slot on the rack backplane where the Driver is to be installed is a DIP-switch package whose possible block address settings are described in Figure 4. I/O References In User I/O Rack Address Switches (7 =Bottom) Remote Location Quantity 5 6 7 The Driver DIP-switches, 1-4, are used to select which of 16 possible addresses in the block is to be reserved for the remote I/O status information. (If 1-4 were depressed to the left, the last address of I/O references would be selected e.g. 0121 - 0128). If the block size is to equal 496, the user can select one of four blocks of I/O references; (the DIP-switch rockers l-5, in this case, select one of 32 possible addresses for status) the selection is made at the I/O Rack where the Driver is to b
