Introduction
Moxa’s PCI Express serial boards meet the new slot standard for expansion boards, and work with any PCI
Express slots. The boards have multiple RS-232/422/485 serial ports for connecting data acquisition
equipment and other serial devices to a PC.

Introduction
Overview
Moxa’s new PCI Express Multiport Serial Boards are designed for POS and ATM applications and for use by
industrial automation system manufacturers and system integrators. The boards are compatible with all
popular operating systems, and each of them supports data rates of up to 921.6 Kbps, and provides full modem
control signals, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of serial peripherals. In addition, all models work with
PCI Express ×1, allowing the boards to be installed in any available PCI Express slot (including ×1, ×2, ×4, ×8,
×16, ×32).
PCI Express Solution
The boards comply with PCI Express Spec. 1.1. The ports’ transmission parameters are configured after the
boards are installed. The PCI BIOS automatically assigns the IRQ and I/O addresses. For this reason, you must
plug the boards into the computer before installing the drivers. For more PCI Express information, refer to the
“Technical Reference” appendix.
ESD Protection
The PCI Express boards come with built-in 15 KV ESD protection to prevent damage to the boards from
lightning or high potential voltage. The surge protection feature makes the PCI Express boards suitable for
industrial, factory-type applications, and for use with applications that are subject to severe weather
conditions.
ADDC™ (Automatic Data Direction Control) for RS-485
RS-485 uses differential data transmission over two wires to transmit data from one station to another, and
allows multiple transmitters and receivers to be used on the same data line. RS-485 uses half-duplex
transmission, which means that transmission and reception share the same data channels. For this reason,
only one transmitter can be active at any given time.
Moxa’s serial boards have a built-in circuitry to switch transmitters on and off automatically. We call this form
of switching ADDC® (automatic data direction control). ADDC® is much easier to implement than the
traditional “handshaking” method that uses the RTS signal.
Operating System Support
The PCI Express boards are compatible with all major industrial platforms, including Windows
2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008, Windows 7/8/2012, Windows CE, DOS, Linux, FreeBSD, QNX, and SCO. Moxa
device drivers are provided for smoother installation, configuration, and performance.

multi-thread serial communication programs, and greatly reduces the time required to develop applications.
For a complete description of the library functions and sample programs for Visual C++, Visual Basic, and
Delphi, check the help file and the sample programs in the PComm directory.
Utilities
In this section, we provide brief descriptions of each utility. For more information about these utilities, read the
on-line help from the Documentation and Software CD.
Diagnostics (for Moxa boards only)
This convenient diagnostics program, which only works with Moxa boards and ports, provides internal and
external testing of IRQ, TxD/RxD, UART, CTS/RTS, DTR/DSR, DTR/DCD, etc. The diagnostics program allows
the user to check both the hardware and software functions.
To run the diagnostics program, click Start  Program  PComm Lite  Diagnostic. A typical test report
for a Moxa board is as follows:

Monitor (for Moxa boards under Windows 2000/XP/2003)
This useful port status monitoring program allows you to monitor data transmission of selected Moxa COM
ports. The program monitors data transmission/receiving throughput, and communication line status, with
data updated and displayed on the screen at regular time intervals. Click a specific port to see a graph of the
current communication parameters and status of that port.
To run the Monitor program, click Start Program  PComm Lite  Monitor.
Terminal Emulator
Use Terminal Emulator to connect to your PC’s serial ports to check if data is being transmitted correctly.
Terminal Emulator features multi-windows, and supports VT100 and ANSI terminal types. You can transfer

data interactively, send patterns periodically, and transfer files using ASCII, XMODEM, YMODEM, ZMODEM,
and KERMIT protocols.
To run Terminal Emulator, click Start  Program  PComm Lite  Terminal Emulator.
RS-485 Programming
If you are using your CP-118EL Series board for RS-485 applications, in addition to reading this section, you
should also refer to the “Connection Cables and Cable Wiring” chapter for more details about using RS-485.
The CP-118EL Series supports 2-wire half-duplex RS-485 and 4-wire full duplex RS-485 communication. Ports
configured for 2-wire RS-485 use the Data+ and Data- pins for both transmitting and receiving data. Moxa’s
own ADDC™ (Automatic Data Direction Control) technology is used to switch between transmission and
reception.
ADDC™
ADDC™ is the best method for switching between transmission and reception when using 2-wire RS-485.
When using ADDC™, additional code is not required to switch between data transmission and reception, since
the board’s built-in intelligent hardware mechanism automatically manages the switching mechanism. RS-485
programming using ADDC™ mode is just as simple and straightforward as RS-232 or RS-422 programming.

CP-118EL-A
The CP-118EL-A board has a female SCSI VHDCI68 connector on the board, with various connection options
available for connecting from the board to your serial devices. In this chapter, we provide pin assignments for
the board side connector, as well as pin assignments for device side connectors for the different connection
options.
The CP-118EL-A board supports RS-232, RS-422, 4-wire RS-485, and 2-wire RS-485. Note that the RS-422
standard uses a balanced voltage digital interface to allow 9600 bps communication over cables of up to 4000
feet in length. You can connect ten receivers to one driver for broadcasting systems. The RS-485 standard is an
enhanced version of the RS-422 balanced line standard. It allows multiple drivers and receivers to work on a
multidrop network. A maximum of 32 drivers and 32 receivers can be set up on a multidrop network. The
CP-118EL-A board supports both 2-wire half-duplex and 4-wire full-duplex RS-485 communications. In 2-wire
RS-485, Data+/- pins are used for both data transmitting and receiving.

 General Troubleshooting
PCI Express Board User's Manual
Driver Installation: Windows 95/98/ME
General Troubleshooting
1. The Moxa PCI Express board cannot be detected by the Moxa driver while installing the driver.
Hardware causes and solutions:
a. Express slot. It is also possible that a slot has malfunctioned. In this case, try other slots until you
find one that works.
b. The motherboard does not have an available IRQ for the PCI Express board. In this case, enter the
BIOS and make sure there is an available IRQ under PCI/PnP settings.
2. The Moxa PCI Express board and driver are activated but cannot transfer (transmit/receive)
data.
Hardware Causes and Solutions:
a.
Make sure the cable wiring is connected correctly. Refer to the “Pin Assignments” chapter for
correct cable connections.
b.
The cable or the board could be defective. Try other ports, cables, or boards to verify this, or use
the PComm Diagnostic utility to test the Moxa board and port conditions. If the Diagnostic program
reports an error, replace the faulty components.
Software Causes and Solutions:
a.
PCI Express Series boards will check the line status (CTS) before transmitting data if the RTS/CTS
flow control feature is set to Enable in the configuration or application program. Refer to the
“Connection Cables and Cable Wiring” chapter for proper wiring diagrams, and check the line
status of the suspected port using the diagnostics LED indicators on the mini tester.
b.
The board control application may not be written correctly according to the corresponding API of
the operating system. To check this problem, run another application that you know is correct, or
use the utilities provided by Moxa (such as PComm Terminal emulator or HyperTerminal under
Windows platform).
