Troubleshooting
Q1:
What interface do the ACR30 readers support?
The ACR30 is available in both USB and Serial interfaces.
Q2:
I get no response from my ACR30 Serial reader.
Serial Reader may not be connected properly. Please follow illustration. The ACR30S has 3
connectors: the 2 PS/2 connectors should be connected to your PS/2 ports (mouse or
keyboard) and the serial connector should be connected to your RS232 port.
Your serial cable may be too long. Please do not use extended serial cable for the reader.
You may have specified the wrong port. The ACR30S can only be connected to: COM1, COM2,
COM3, and COM4.
Q3:
I get no response from my USB Reader.
The USB drivers provided by ACS will work for the following Operating Systems: Windows 98,
Windows ME, Windows 2000 and XP. The USB reader will not run under: DOS, Windows 95,
and Windows NT.
Please check if your USB port is functioning properly. It is possible that there is a physical
damage with your USB port.
Make sure you installed the correct USB driver. Go to Windows Device Manager and check
under the Smart card readers’ device type if PC/SC driver was properly installed or under the
Universal Serial Bus controllers’ device type for ACS Synchronous driver (Proprietary Driver).
Q4:
ACR30’s green LED doesn’t blink, while ACR38’s does. Is this normal?
Yes.
Q5:
An error message says the reader insertion monitor error retry threshold reached.
Cause: The ACR30 USB smart card reader was disconnected in the middle of a session on
Windows 98/ME. The Microsoft Smart Card System dialog prompts the following message:
Reader insertion monitor error retry threshold reached. The parameter is incorrect.
If you click OK to close the message box, another dialog might pop-up saying:
Reader monitor „ACS ACR30U 0‟ received uncaught error code. The parameter is incorrect.
If one or both of these messages appear, the ACR30 smart card reader will not work on the
current Windows session, even if you reconnect the device.
Solution: You need to reconnect the ACR30 smart card reader and reboot the system. On
Windows 98 and ME, the Smart Card Resource Manager detects the ACR30 smart card reader
only upon bootup.
Q6:
My ACR30S reader is not listed in Windows Device Manager.
Serial Readers are not Plug-and-Play devices, and therefore will not be displayed in your
Windows Device Manager. Only USB readers (ACR30U) and Serial Plug-and-Play (ACR30SP)
will be listed in the Device Manager.

pitch” on the one side while the other side is
connected to a “DB9(F) connector”.
Wiring Procedures:
1. Firstly, connect the DB9(F) of the extension cable
to any unused Serial Port externally.
2. Secondly, let the 2x5 pins Plug go through the slot
hole of the PC Chassis.
3. Finally, connect the 2x5 pins Plug of the flat cable
into the 2x5 pins header on the PCB of the reader.

Scheme 2:
RS232 reader cable linked to a metal panel, another
cable linked to the RS232 port.
Two extension cables are required:

3.

A flat cable with a “2x5 pins plug, 2.54mm pitch” on
the one side while the other side is connected to a
“DB9(F) connector with metal panel”.
A serial extension cable “DB9(F) to DB9(M)”
Wiring Procedures:
2.
1.
Firstly, connect the 2x5 pins Plug of the flat cable
into the 2x5 pins Header on the PCB of the reader.
2.
Secondly, fix the “DB9(F) with metal panel” on
the slot hole of the PC Chassis.
3.
Finally, connect any unused Serial Port and the
“DB9(F) with metal panel fixed on the PC
Chassis” together with the “serial extension cable”

Scheme 3:
RS232 reader, using an additional RS-232C Card
2.
3.
An extension cable and a RS-232C card are required:

A flat cable with “2x5 pins plug, 2.54mm pitch” on
both sides.
An additional RS-232C Card is required. Only one serial
port is required. However, many RS-232C cards come
with 2 serial ports.
1.
Wiring Procedures:
1. Firstly, connect the 2x5 pins Plug of the flat cable
into the 2x5 pins Header on the PCB of the reader.
2. Secondly, plug the provided RS-232C card into any
available ISA slot of the motherboard.
3. Finally, connect the 2x5 pins Plug at the other end
of the same flat cable into the 2x5 pins header
socket on the additional RS-232C card.
Remark: Card Slot Interface must be taken into
consideration, because few motherboards
nowadays still support ISA slots!
