6 Introduction
Keyboards
The “PC” keyboards, including the EPC (101-key) and the PC/+
(106/107-key), are similar in style and feature a number of key
groups.
The alphanumeric keypad is the main typewriter keypad, while
the function key group lies along the top of the keyboard and can
be programmed locally or downloaded from the host. The
numeric keypad is the calculator-style set of keys on the righthand side of the keyboard, used to enter numeric data.
The cursor and edit keypads, located to the left of the numeric
keypad, allows users to edit text and move around in the
document. The communication key group, above the edit
keypad, is used to control communications with the host or
printer.
The ANSI keyboard varies from the PC keyboard styles mainly in
that it features 20 function keys, a set of PF-keys, and a different
style numeric keypad.
For each keyboard, there is a set of local “hot-keys.” They
perform a variety of terminal functions, such as “Print Screen”
and “Enter Setup.” (See Appendix A for a complete list of local
functions.)

Communications
This terminal is equipped with three ports. The two serial ports
are intended for connecting to either a host/modem or a serial
printer. The remaining port is a Centronics-compatible printer
port. The port you use as the printer port depends on whether
you have a serial or a parallel interface to the printer.
The first host/printer serial port (SES1-EIA) can communicate
with your computer or printer at a baud rate of 110 to 134,400
baud (bits per second). The second host/printer serial port
(SES2-AUX) can communicate at speeds from 110 baud to 38,400
baud. Either port can be used to connect to a host
computer/modem or serial printer.
You have the choice of using either the second serial port or the
parallel printer port as your printer interface. Refer to the
following sections for further information on these ports.
Receive Flow Control
Because devices can receive data faster than they can process it,
data flow control (selectable in the PORTS menu of Setup)
should be used to prevent data loss. Software flow control relies
on the Xon and Xoff characters (“g” and “e” characters in Scan
Code key mode) to indicate when the terminal is able or unable
to store further data. The Xon signal transmits the DC1
character (11h) and the Xoff signal transmits DC3 (13h).
When “EIA (or Aux) Rcv” in the Setup menu for PORTS is
“Xon-Xoff,” the terminal issues an Xoff character, indicating to
the host that it should stop transmitting data. The terminal will
then continue to process data until its receive buffer is empty. It
will then issue an Xon character to the host, indicating that it
can resume sending data to the terminal.
10 Introduction
If the “EIA (or Aux) Rcv” is “No Protocol” in Setup, the terminal
will continue to accept characters into its receive buffer until it
is full. Additional characters will be lost. Xon-Xoff protocol must
also be set on the host computer or printer for proper
handshaking.
In addition to software “receive” flow control (Xon-Xoff), the serial
host/printer ports support “receive” hardware flow control. The
SES1-EIA port has an outgoing DTR (Data Terminal Ready) signal.
If “EIA Rec” is “DTR” in Setup, and the terminal’s receive buffer
fills to the level mentioned above, the terminal will set the DTR
signal low to inform the host (serial) device to stop sending data.
On the SES2-AUX port, if “Aux Recv” is “DSR” in Setup, the
outgoing DSR (Data Set Ready) signal serves to signal the host
(serial) device that the terminal is not ready to receive more data.
Transmit Flow Control
Likewise, the terminal will understand the Xon and Xoff requests
from the host when it is transmitting data (provided the “EIA (or
Aux) Xmt” is “Xon-Xoff” in Setup). This is referred to as
“transmit” flow control.
This terminal will stop transmitting data to the host or printer
when it receives an Xoff (DC3) code. If, however, the terminal
needs to send a receive protocol character, it will transmit that
character even if it has received an Xoff code. When the terminal
stops transmitting, the data will be buffered in the transmit
buffer. Once the buffer is full, additional keyboard data will be
lost. When an Xon (DC1) character is received, the terminal can
again send data to the attached serial device.
In addition to software “transmit” flow control (Xon-Xoff), the
serial host/printer ports support “transmit” hardware flow
control. DSR on the SES1-EIA port and DTR on the SES2-AUX
port monitor serial devices to control the flow of data to them
(provided EIA and AUX Xmit are “DSR” and “DTR”, respectively, in
Setup).
Communications
11
For parallel printers, this terminal monitors the BUSY and ERROR
signals which are sent by the printer to determine when data
transmission should be stopped or resumed.
Host/Printer Port 1
This port, labeled “SES1-EIA,” is designed for connection to the
host (computer or modem) or a serial printer via a 25-pin D-shell
(DB25P) female connector. This port uses an RS-232-C
communication interface, is configured as a DTE (Data Terminal
Equipment) device, and can operate from 110 to 134,400 baud.
The pins supported are shown below:
Host/Printer Port 1 Pin Assignments
Host/Printer Port 2
This port, labeled “SES2-AUX,” is designed to connect to a host
connection (computer or modem) or a serial printer, and can
operate from 110 to 38,400 baud. This port uses an RS-232-C
interface via a DB25P female connector, and is configured as a
DCE (Data Communication Equipment) device. The pin
assignments for this port are shown below:

Introduction
Host/Printer Port 2 Pin Assignments
Refer to the Installation chapter for details on the connection
of all ports to serial devices (hosts, modems, or printers).
Communications
13
Parallel Printer Port
This port, labeled “PAR,” is designed for connection to a parallel
printer, which has a Centronics interface with a 25-pin D-shell
female connector. This port, unlike the others, is a unidirectional device —it only serves to output data to the printer
and cannot receive data. The pins and signals supported are
shown below:
Parallel Port Pin Assignments
* These signals are held high, in an inactive state.
If you have opted to use a parallel printer, but it is not
connected, an error message will appear on the status line
when any PRINT operation is done. To clear the message,
press Ctrl-Shift-Tab.

Screen Display and Pages
This terminal offers a variety of screen lengths including 26, 30,
44, or 52 lines. These numbers include the top and bottom
status lines (or label line), as well as the lines used to display
data. A “page” of terminal memory represents the total number of
lines that can be accessed, whether or not they are all viewable
on the screen at once. Refer to Appendix A for the number and
lengths of pages available for your setup.
The page length is comprised of a base page length multiplied by
1,2,4, or 8. For instance, in certain modes, 24 (24x1), 48 (24x2),
and 96 (24x4) are available, the same way that 25(25x1), 50
(25x2), and 100 (25x4) are. The base page length and the screen
size determine whether a bottom status line or label line is
displayed or not.
Bottom Status/Label Line Display
With a screen length of “26 lines,” the page lengths that are
multiples of 24 allow the bottom status/label line to be displayed,
while those that are multiples of 25 do not. The same idea
applies with the 44 line screen size. A page length with 42 lines
as a base page size will display a label line, while the 43 line base
page length will not. An exception to this rule is if the screen
length is significantly larger than the that page size, then the
label line is displayed, such as if the screen is 44 lines and the
page length is 25 lines.
16 Introduction
The figure below represents the entire page memory of a 48 line
page (24 base page length times a multiplier of 2) and the portion
of the page that is viewable on the display screen, when “26
Lines” is selected. Notice that the label line is visiblein this
mode.
Visual Effects of Screen and Page Lengths
The combination of page and screen lengths influence the
number of displayable data lines. For example, if the page length
is “50” (25 x 2), and the screen length is 44 lines, the number of
data lines that are visible at any one time is 43, with no label line
(the other line is used for the top status line). On a 52 line
screen, 50 of the 52 data lines are visible at one time.
If the page length is shorter than the screen length, blank lines
are present below the data line or status/label line. If the page
length is larger than the allowable number of data lines, some of
the rows are out of view. In order to bring them into view,
“scrolling” or “panning” is used as necessary.
Scrolling causes a new line to scroll into view when the cursor
advances past the last or first row on the page. If the cursor
moves past the last row, the top row of text is lost; if past the first
Screen Display and Pages 17
row, the bottom row of text is lost (if Auto Scroll is “on” in Setup).
Note that text scrolled off the screen is not recoverable.
18 Introduction
If the current page or portion of the page is longer than the
screen display or window in which it is displayed, local keystrokes
can be used to “pan” the window up or down (Ctrl-↑ and Ctrl-↓).
As a window is panned up, the page appears to be moving down;
the opposite is true when panning the window down. Text that
is panned off the screen is out of view, but is not lost.
The figure below represents the display screen with a 48 line
page length on a 44 line screen, after panning the window down
2 lines.

Installation
This section provides a “walk-through” approach to the
installation of your terminal. This will enable you to physically
connect the terminal to a printer and a host computer/modem,
as well as to configure the Setup menu to suit your requirements
and preferences.
The terminal is designed to provide great flexibility in configuring
the terminal. An example of the flexibility is apparent in the fact
that either the EIA or Aux ports can be used to connect either to
a host or a printer port.
The procedures described here are among the most common.
Described here are conventional setups, with or without a
printer. These steps may need to be adjusted to meet your
requirements.
STEP 1 – Know Your Devices
The first step in our installation process will be to determine
what type of serial ports you are connecting to the terminal. The
Communications section in the Introduction chapter describes
the differences between a DTE and DCE serial device. Determine
what type of devices you are using (a DTE host, a DCE modem, a
DTE printer, a parallel printer, etc.).
17
18 Installation
STEP 2 – Physical Connections
Depending on the types of serial interfaces of your devices, you
may need one or more “null modem” adapters to communicate
properly.
First, refer to the Common Setups diagrams later in this chapter.
If one of these setups matches your needs, make the connections
as shown in the diagrams by referring to the Host/Printer
Connection. Each cable connection in the diagram (the lines
with arrows on each end) has a letter next to it.
The letters correspond to the letters in the Host/Printer
Connection Guide. If these setups don’t apply, choose the
connections in the Host/Printer Connection Guide that are
appropriate.
Your physical connections are now complete.
STEP 3 – No Printer Option
If you did not opt to install a printer (did not complete E, F, G, or
H), you must set the Printer portion of the Host/Printer selection
in the Quick (F1) Setup menu to “None.” Choose the
combination of Host/Printer that properly represents which
terminal port you are connecting the host to, and “None” as the
printer. For example, if the EIA port is connected to the host or
modem, the setting would be “EIA/None.”
STEP 4 – Know Your Serial Port(s) Protocol
Consult your system administrator to find out the communication
settings on all the serial devices you are connected to, including
EIA (or Aux) baud, data bits, stop bits, parity, parity checking
on/off, and transmit and receive flow control protocol. This could
include a host/modem, or a serial printer. Record this
information in the User Settings Chart later in this chapter for
reference in Step 7.
STEP 5 – Communications Setup Selections
19
STEP 5 – Communications Setup Selections
To complete this step, you must recall the letters next to the
connections that you made in Step 2.
The procedures below correspond directly to the individual
connections made. Notice that only certain connection
procedures are to be followed, not all of them. For example, if
you have made connections “C” and “F” to a modem and a serial
printer, then follow connection procedures “C” and “F” below.
Only follow those steps that apply to your connections (A-H).
To access the Setup menu, press Ctrl-Scroll Lock on a PC
keyboard or F3 on an ANSI keyboard.
Connection A: Host DCE
1.
Enter the Setup menu.
2.
In the Setup Quick (F1) menu, set the Host portion of the
“Host/Printer” selection to “EIA” without changing the
current Printer option (“EIA/xxxx”). The Printer will be set in
another connection procedure if needed.
3.
In the Ports (F6) menu, set the proper communications
settings for the EIA Baud, EIA Data Format, EIA Parity Check,
EIA Recv, and EIA Xmt selections. See the Setup chapter for
more information on the individual settings.
Connection B: Host DTE
1.
Enter the Setup menu.
2.
In the Setup Quick (F1) menu, set the Host portion of the
“Host/Printer” selection to “Aux” without changing the
current Printer option (“Aux/xxxx”). The Printer will be set
in another connection procedure if needed.
3.
In the Ports (F6) menu, set the proper communications
settings for the Aux Baud, Aux Data Format, Aux Parity
20 Installation
Check, Aux Recv, and Aux Xmt. See the Setup chapter for
more information on the individual settings.
Connection C: RS-232 with Modem
1.
Follow all procedures of Connection A, steps 1 through 3.
2.
If you are connecting to a modem, set the “EIA Modem
Control” parameter to “On” in the Ports (F6) menu.
Connection D: RS-232-C with Modem
1.
Follow all procedures of Connection B, steps 1 through 3.
2.
If you are connecting to a modem, set the “Aux Modem
Control” parameter to “On” in the Ports (F6) menu.
Connection E: Printer
1.
In the Setup Quick (F1) menu, set the Printer portion of the
“Host/Printer” selection to “EIA” without changing the
current Host option (“xxxx/EIA”). The Host will be set in
another connection procedure if needed.
2.
Follow procedure of Connection A, step 3.
Connection F: RS-232-C Printer
1.
In the Setup Quick (F1) menu, set the Printer portion of the
“Host/Printer” selection to “Aux” without changing the
current Host option (“xxxx/Aux”). The Host will be set in
another connection procedure if needed.
2.
Follow procedure of Connection B, step 3.
Connections G and H: Parallel Printer
1.
Enter the Setup menu.
2.
In the Setup Quick (F1) menu, set the Printer portion of the
“Host/Printer” selection to “Para” without changing the
current Host option (“xxxx/ Para”).
STEP 8 – Emulation Setup Selection 21
STEP 8 – Emulation Setup Selection
This step requires setting a selection in the Setup menu to
configure the “Emulation” of the terminal. Determine which
emulation your applications run with.
Enter the Setup menu and set the “Emulation” parameter, in the
Quick (F1) menu, to match your requirements.
STEP 9 – Additional Setup Options
At this point, you should proceed to the Setup chapter and
continue to set up your own selections for any other parameters
such as those for the display, keyboard, function/edit keys, and
tabs.
STEP 10 – Save Parameters
Finally, remember to save your Setup parameters in permanent
memory, so that they can be recovered if the terminal is powered
down. When you exit the Setup menu, the prompt “Save all?
(Y/N)” flashes. To save parameters, press “Y”. Another way to
save parameters is to perform a “Save Terminal” operation, while
in the Exec (F13/Prnt Scrn) menu of Setup.
Remember to save your Setup settings after the entire
installation process.
STEP 11 – Establish Communications
Your installation is now complete. By pressing the Return or
Enter key, you should be able to communicate with the host
computer(s). The printer should respond to the local print
command, Shift-Ctrl-. (period on numeric keypad).
If for some reason, your installation was not successful, make
sure your physical connections are secure, that the
communications protocol settings match your devices, and that
22 Installation
the Setup selections are chosen to provide a proper interface
between the terminal and your devices.
If you continue to have problems installing the terminal, call your
local dealer for technical support.

DISPLAY: F3
Page Length: [24, 25, 42, 43, 48, 50, 84, 86, 96, *24, *25, *42, *43]
Select the number of lines per page. As many as four pages (0-3)
may be available, but the number of pages in memory depends on
the number of lines per page and whether 80-Only is selected for
columns. The total lines used (Lines/Page x # of Pages) will not
exceed 96. See the Page Configurations in Appendix A.
Page lengths which are multiples of 24 or 25 and those that are
multiples of 42 or 43 are displayed by default on a 26-line or
44-line screen, respectively. The extra one or two lines on the
screen can be used as status lines.
If a page length which is preceded by an asterisk (*24, *25, *42, or
*43) is selected, the total number of pages will be two, where the
first page contains the number of lines in the selection (24,25,42,
or 43) and the second page contains the remaining allowable
lines. (See Appendix A.)
Screen Length: [26 Lines, 30 Lines, 44 Lines, 52 Lines]
Select the number of lines that can be displayed on the screen at
one time. The page length affects the default screen length.

þ
þ
þ
þ
Meta sets the most significant bit for the next character and
allows 8-bit data to be generated from the keyboard.
Compose precedes sequences of keys to create a character
that is not on the keyboard but is available in the active
character set.
Scroll Lock causes the Alt key to function as the Scroll Lock
key, and is a toggle to hold/free data on the screen. It
requires the use of flow control for the host portRcv Prtcl.
Funct causes the Alt key to function as the Funct key on an
ASCII keyboard.
Alt Key causes the left Alt key to behave identically to the
right Alt key.
Pound Key: [U.S., British]
Choose the character transmitted for 23h—the US pound (#) or
the British pound (£).
Return Key Repeat: [On, Off]
Select whether the Return key located on the alphanumeric
keypad will repeat when held down for more than half a second
(only selectable when “Key Repeat” = On).
Local Leadin: [On, Off]
This parameter is only available when Key Mode (in the Kybd
menu) is ScanCode. If Local Leadin is off, the only local function,
shown in Appendix A, is Ctrl-Scroll Lock (Ctrl-Select on the ANSI
44
Setup
keyboard) to enter Setup. If Local Leadin is on, the Setup
keystroke “introduces” the keystroke as local and then local
functions can be generated using the keystrokes listed in
Appendix A.
KEYS: F5 45
For example, to enter Setup when ScanCode and Local Leadin
are on, press Ctrl-Scroll Lock (Ctrl-Select on the ANSI keyboard) to
introduce this as a local function (“LEAD” will appear in the
status line), and then Ctrl-Scroll Lock (Ctrl-Select on the ANSI
keyboard) to enter Setup.
Local Leadin will not work if Comm Mode is set to Half Block or
Full Block.
UDKs: [Emul Dependent, User Dependent]
Choose whether the UDKs should get defaulted when the host
changes the emulation.
The following selections apply to the PC keyboards:
Disconnect: [Disabled, Pause, Alt-Pause]
Sele ct the keystroke that will generate a modem disconnect.
Backspace: [BS/DEL, DEL/BS, DEL/CAN, BS/BS]
Choose the codes sent by the backspace key in the
normal/shifted positions.
Desk Acc: [Sh-Ctrl-Fkeys, Ctrl ←
← , Disabled]
Select how the Desk Accessories can be accessed. This selection
does not appear when SCO Console emulation is selected. In
SCO Console emulation, Ctrl ← is the only access method.
The default allows the desk accessories to be accessed through a
menu which appears when Ctrl and the left arrow key are
pressed simultaneously. This brings up a pop-up window;
selections for the specific accessory can be made from that menu
by pressing F1-F5. The Sh-Ctrl-Fkeys option, when selected,
allows direct access to desk accessories (bypassing the menu) by
pressing Sh-Ctrl-F1 through Sh-Ctrl-F5. Selecting Disabled will
inhibit entry to desk accessories. Once a desk accessory is
displayed, any other desk accessory can be accessed by pressing
only the function key associated with it (without pressing
Sh-Ctrl).
46 Setup
The following selections apply only to the ANSI keyboard:
Disconnect: [Disabled, Shift-F5]
Choose to allow the keystroke that will generate a modem
disconnect on the ANSI keyboard or to disable the Disconnect
function. Note that if “F1 to F5 keys” is Fkey in Setup, the
Disconnect function will be remapped to Ctrl-Shift-F5.
F1 to F5 keys: [Local, Fkey]
This selection determines whether the first five keys, labeled F1–
F5, serve as local keystrokes (for example, F3 allows access to
Setup) or will serve as function keys which are loaded with the
default strings. (Only reprogrammed strings are visible in the text
area for a given function or edit key; the default strings are not
visible in Setup.)
If Fkey is selected, then the keystroke to enter Setup becomes
Ctrl-F3 on the ANSI keyboard.
With the three remapping selections, keys which are available on
a PC keyboard are now available on a PC keyboard are now
available on the ANSI style keyboard: [ESC] [`~] [, and .].
The three selections
should either be kept in
their defaults (as they
appear on the keyboard),
or all three should be
changed to follow the
mapping scheme
described here.
,, and .. [,, and .. or ,< and .>]
Select the character sent by the comma and period keys in the
normal and shifted mode.
<> Key [< and > or ` and ~]
Select the characters sent by the triangle bracket key in the
normal and shifted positions.
KEYS: F5 47
/~ Key [` and ` or ESC]

See the Quick menu earlier in this chapter.
EIA (Aux) Parity Check: [On, Off]
Choose whether the parity bit will be checked. When parity
check is on and the parity bit received is inconsistent with the
data received, indicating an error in communications, an asterisk
(*) 2Ah is displayed instead of the character.
Aux Baud Rate: [38400, 19200, 9600, 4800, 2400, 2000, 1800, 1200, 600, 300, 150,

See the Quick menu earlier in this chapter.
EIA (Aux) Recv: [No Protocol Xon-Xoff (XPC), Xany-Xoff (XPC), DTR (DSR),
Xany-Xoff/DTR (DSR)]
Choose the form of flow control for data received from the primary
or secondary host. Software flow control uses Xon-Xoff DC1 (11h)
and DC3 (13h). XPC is used by “Scan Code” mode because it uses
DC1 and DC3 as data. Xany-Xoff (XPC) is similar to Xon-Xoff,
except that any character transmitted to the host is treated as an
Xon, so data from the terminal is buffered, rather than being sent
to the host. DTR (DSR for Aux) relies on the hardware signal DTR
or DSR (pin 20 or pin 6) from the device. Xany-Xoff/DTR (DSR)
uses software and hardware flow control.
Flow control is recommended to protect against data loss.
PORTS: F6 49
EIA (Aux) Xmit: [No Protocol, Xon-Xoff, DSR (DTR), Both]
This is similar to “EIA (Aux) Recv,” except that it applies to the
data transmitted from the terminal to the primary or secondary
host or printer. DSR is the hardware signal for Data Set Ready
(pin 6).
In ADDS VP emulation, DC1 and DC3 can be interpreted as
data and should not be selected as a form of protocol.
EIA (Aux) Break: [250 ms , 170 ms, 500 ms, Off]
Choose the duration of the break signal in milliseconds. This is
an interruption in data flow, and can be disabled.
EIA (Aux) Modem Control: [On, Off]
If a modem is being used to communicate with the primary or
secondary host, modem control should be on. To perform a
disconnect, the terminal drops the DTR signal. In full duplex, the
terminal keeps RTS high and checks for a CD signal before
sending data to the modem. In half duplex, it raises RTS and
awaits a clear-to-send (CTS) signal from the modem before
sending data.
EIA (Aux) Xmt Pace: [Baud, 35 cps, 60 cps, 150 cps]
Define the maximum number of characters per second that the
terminal can transmit. When a characters limit (35 cps, 60 cps, or
135 cps) is set, the delays are averaged between characters for
the selected baud rate. This is also known as “pacing.” The
Baud option provides no pacing, allowing data to be transmitted
at the specified baud rate.
EIA (Aux) Disconnect: [2sec, 60ms]
Select the maximum time period that the modem can be
disconnected (or the modem line be down) before the terminal
performs a Modem Disconnect. This occurs if “EIA (Aux) Modem
Control” is on.
50 Setup
HOST: F7
Comm Mode: [Full Duplex, Half Duplex, Full Block, Half Block]

interpreted.
Receive <DEL>: [Ignore, Destruct <BS>]
Choose to ignore the DEL control code (7Fh) when received or to
treat it as a Destructive Backspace code.
Send ACK: [Off, On ]
Decide whether the terminal should respond to inquiry (05h) or
when certain terminal functions are performed (configuring the EIA
(Aux) ports, splitting screen, etc.) with the ACK (06h) character.
Null Suppress: [On, Off]
In the default mode, the host ignores all received nulls (00 hex).
When off is selected, the terminal will accept all received nulls,
and act upon them according to the selected emulation.
Send Line Term: [<US>, <CR><LF>]
Select which line terminator is sent. <US> is 1Fh and <CR><LF>
is 0Dh 0Ah.
Local: [Off, On]
Select whether keyed data is interpreted locally by the terminal
and not sent to the host. Data sent by the host is lost, if Local is
on. The ability to print data is not affected by this mode.
Send Block Term: [<ETX>, <CR>]
Select which character will indicate the end of a block. The
choices above are for ASCII emulations. ANSI emulations have
the following choices: [None, FF].

þ
Normal indicates that printing is to occur when a print
request (such as print screen) is received.
Auto prints a line when the terminal receives a LF, a FF, or a
VT code, or when autowrap occurs.
Controller indicates that host data is sent to the printer
(pass through mode). Printing is controlled by the host
computer.
Print Block Term: [<ETX>, <CR>]
Select the character which indicates to the printer that the block
of data to be printed has ended. The options above are for ASCII
emulations. In ANSI emulations, the choices are [None, <FF>].
Print Region: [Screen, Scroll]
Indicate the region of the screen that is to be printed: the entire
screen or a certain section of it called the scrolling region. A
scrolling region is a limited portion of the screen which
applications (such as word processors) may designate to be the
user’s.
Print Line Term: [<US>, <CR><LF>]
Indicate the character that <R>is to terminate a line of print.
Secondary Recv: [Off, On]
When “on,” data received from the serial printer is routed to the
port assigned for the host. This data is not displayed on the
screen, and is transparent to the user. When “off,” data received
from the printer port is ignored.
EMULATION: F9 53

on the lowest line. When off is selected, any existing labels will
remain on the screen, until on is selected, and they are
re-displayed. On a 26-line screen, they are displayed below line
24. On a 44-line screen, labels are displayed below line 42, and
on a 52-line screen, they are displayed below line 50. (The top
line is the top status line and cannot be used for data.) If the
page length used is a multiple of 25 (instead of 24) and the
screen length is 26 lines , then the last data line is used for data
and labels will not be displayed regardless of this setting. The
same is true for a page length that is a multiple of 43 (instead of
42) with a screen length of 44 lines.
Status Line: [Standard, Extended, Off]
Select the type of the status line. In standard, cursor row and

64 Setup
Edit Fields
Setup uses overwrite mode in text editing fields. That is, the
cursor keys cannot be used to move to a location in the text to
insert characters. Upon entry to a text field, the cursor is placed
at the last text location. Use the following keystrokes:
þ
Backspace – move cursor left by deleting that character.
þ
Shift-Backspace – reset the field to its default value.
þ
Alphanumeric keys – enter text in the normal, shifted, or
control state. To generate a control character (00h-1Fh) add

NOTE TO INSTALLER
This equipment complies with the FCC Regulation for Class A devices,
Subpart J of Part 15. Shielded, grounded interface cables were used on
all ports for FCC radiated emission testing.
The manufacturer is not responsible for any violation of the FCC
Regulation for Class A devices that is caused by unauthorized
modification of the equipment, or caused by equipment installation not in
accordance with the instructions in this manual.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy
and may cause radio or television interference. All user equipment that
interfaces with other products should be connected with shielded cables.
(Contact a local dealer for more information on shielded cable assemblies
and their availability.)
There is no guarantee that interference will not occur. If radio or
television interference occurs (this can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on while the radio or television is on), the user is solely
responsible for correcting the interference and is encouraged to take one
or more of these measures:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Reorient the receiving antenna.
Relocate the equipment, or move the equipment away from the
receiver.
Plug the equipment into a different outlet so the unit and
receiver are on different branch circuits.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/television
technician.
It is also suggested that the user read the FCC booklet entitled How
to Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference Problems. The booklet
is available from the US Government Printing Office, Washington, DC
20402. (When ordering the booklet, specify stock number 04-00000345-4.)
Site Preparation
The screen display geometry on terminal products is aligned using
magnetic devices. External magnetic fields created by other types of
electronic equipment, such as printers, in very close proximity to the
terminal, may cause minor display distortion.
Examples of display distortion include:
þ
þ
þ
Shaky video
Wavy lines
Tilted display
This magnetic field interaction only occurs over a very short distance,
normally less than twelve inches, and can be corrected by separating
the equipme nt and/or slightly reorienting the display.
