Connect Tech BlueStorm/Express User Manual

Introduction

Connect Tech's BlueStorm/Express family offers compatibility with the next generation in computer bus standards. Available in two, four, eight and sixteen ports, these x1 lane PCI Express serial cards make it easy to add a wide variety of serial communications options to computers with a PCI Express bus. Your existing serial peripherals can connect directly to the BlueStorm/Express serial card, using legacy application software from your PCI system.

Instead of relying on shared parallel bus architecture, PCI Express is built around bidirectional, dedicated point-to-point “lanes.” This technology allows extensive future scalability. With the future in mind, Connect Tech designed the BlueStorm/Express to ensure compatibility with future versions of the PCI Express bus.

The BlueStorm/Express is perfect for a variety of applications such as retail/point of sale, automated teller machines, transportation stations, lottery terminals and self-service kiosks, among others.

Connect Tech BlueStorm/Express User Manual

BlueStorm/Express Installation Overview

Before you begin, take a moment to ensure your package includes the components that ship with your product. These components should include:

One BlueStorm/Express adapter

One CD containing software and documentation

One DB-9 male fan-out cable or other custom cable assembly (optional)

If any of these components are missing, contact Connect Tech

(see more Contact Details ) or your

reseller.

There are three stages to installing your BlueStorm/Express:

1.

Hardware Configuration

Interrupts and Memory selection will be set by the host computer’s BIOS and operating system. This section outlines jumper settings and configuration.

2.

Hardware Installation

Installation involves the physical installation of the BlueStorm/Express into your computer.

Please note that you should configure any jumper settings prior to installing the board.

(If you choose to use the Windows Software First installation option, go to Section 3 before

Section 2.)

3.

Software/Driver Installation

Load the appropriate driver for your Operating System, as found on the accompanying CD.

Installation guides are also available on the CD to aid you in this process. Please note that

Windows users have two options for software installation:

Software First installations require that you install your drivers prior to installing the hardware into your system.

Hardware First installations require the installation of the drivers when prompted by the operating system’s hardware detection process after the hardware installation.

Hardware Configuration

Interrupts and Memory Address Selection

The BlueStorm/Express board is a PCI Express card, so the host computer’s BIOS will automatically set interrupts and memory addresses when you power up the system.

Electrical Interfaces

RS-232 Electrical Interface

This is the default setting for the selectable interface of the BlueStorm/Express. To operate a port in RS-232 mode, no jumpers are set on the corresponding jumper block.

RS-422/485 Electrical Interface

The BlueStorm/Express models with support for RS-422/485 interface offer three modes of RS-

422/485 communication, as outlined below. (See Figure 8

to see examples of jumper settings.)

Full Duplex Mode

In this mode, TxD+/- is being driven to a known level all the time. This mode is typically used in point-to-point situations much like RS-232. It is the default setting for RS-422/485 mode.

Revision 0.11 13

Connect Tech BlueStorm/Express User Manual

Half Duplex Mode

In this mode the TxD+/- line driver is enabled only when data is transmitted and RxD+/- is disabled when data is being transmitted. This mode is typically used in either point-to-point 2-wire connections OR in multi-drop 2-wire bus connections. This mode requires software setup in

Control Panel – System – Hardware – Device Manager – Ports – CTI PCI Express UART. Click on

Advanced under Port Settings after the driver is installed. (See

Port Settings ).

Multi-drop Mode

In this mode the TxD+/- line driver is enabled only when data is transmitted and RxD+/- is enabled all the time. This mode is typically used in multi-drop 4-wire connections. This mode requires software setup in Control Panel – System Properties – Hardware – Device Manager – Ports –

CTI PCI Express UART. Click on Advanced under Port Settings. (See Half Duplex Mode above.)

Line Bias/Termination

The RS-422/485 transceivers transmit and receive, are optionally biased to produce a line level mark condition through jumper selectable resistors. These options are typically used in multi-drop

4-wire connections.

Jumper Block Settings

The following jumper block diagram depicts typical settings on a four-port selectable

BlueStorm/Express. Jumper blocks JA and JB control ports 1 and 2, JC and JD control ports 3 and

4, respectively. (See Figures 1 to 7

for location of jumper blocks.)

Figure 8: Example of various port configuration jumper block settings

In this example, Port 1(JA) is set to RS-232, Port 2 (JB) is set to RS-422/485 half duplex, Port 3 (JC) is set to RS-422/485 full duplex, and Port 4 (JD) is set to RS-422/485 multi-drop.

RS-485 Selection: Install this jumper to configure a port for RS-422/485 mode. If the jumper is not installed, the port will function in RS-232 mode. (All jumpers should be removed from any port operating in RS-232 mode.)

TxD Control: Install this jumper to enable the RS-485 transmitter only when sending data. This mode is useful for half-duplex operation when only one device is allowed to send data at a time. If the jumper is not installed, the transmitter will always drive the line to an idle state when not sending data.

RxD control: Install this jumper to enable the RS-485 receiver only when NOT transmitting data.

This is useful for half-duplex operation to prevent the transmitting device from receiving the data it has sent. If this jumper is not installed, the receiver is always enabled and ready to receive data.

RxD ± Termination/Bias: Install this pair of jumpers to enable a 150 Ohm terminator across the

RxD+ and RxD- pins for the corresponding port. A biasing network is also enabled that drives the receiver to an inactive or safe mode. The receiver can still receive data from another device and the biasing helps to prevent the reception of data generated by noise on the transmission line. The two jumpers for RxD termination/bias must be installed and removed as a pair.

14 Revision 0.11

Connect Tech BlueStorm/Express User Manual

TxD ± Termination: Install this jumper to enable a 150 Ohm resistor across the TxD+ and TxD- pins of the corresponding port.

Half Duplex and Multi-drop modes require you to select the appropriate mode via

software. Please refer to the readme.txt files found in the appropriate directories on the CD.

Tri-state Operation

Jumper block J2 (see Figure 1 for an example) controls Tx tri-state on boot for ports configured in

RS-485 half duplex or multi-drop modes. This jumper block will have no effect on ports configured as RS-232 or RS-485 full duplex.

For BlueStorm/Express 2/4 port cards, jumpering position 1 disables tri-state on boot for ports 1 and 2. Jumpering position 2 disables tri-state on boot for ports 3 and 4.

For BlueStorm/Express Opto and BlueStorm/Express LP Opto cards, jumpering position 1 enables tri-state on boot for ports 1 and 2. Jumpering position 2 enables tri-state on boot for ports 3 and 4.

Jumper block J1 is used in diagnostic modes and should be left unpopulated unless directed otherwise by Connect Tech’s technical support in the diagnosing of a system problem.

Power-On Tri-state (BlueStorm/Express Opto 1 kV model only)

BlueStorm/Express Opto 1 kV models offer a power-on tri-state similar to the Auto-485 mode selection listed above. The BlueStorm/Express Opto 1kV will tri-state ports configured as RS-485 half duplex or multi-drop slave.

Jumper J1 controls the power-on tri-state functionality. Install a jumper on the first location of the

J1 in order to tri-state Port 1 at power-on. Install a jumper on the second position for Port 2, etc.

The ports will not come out of tri-state until the driver begins transmitting on the associated port.

Installing a jumper on J1 will have no effect on ports configured in RS-232 mode.

Half Duplex and Multi-drop Slave modes require you to select the appropriate mode via software. Please refer to the readme.txt files found in the appropriate directories on the

BlueStorm/Express CD.

Revision 0.11 15

Hardware Installation

Installing the BlueStorm/Express into Your System

Turn off the power to your computer and open it to expose the expansion slots (consult your system’s documentation for more information on this procedure).

Jumper all of the ports to the desired line interface and termination.

Choose an available PCI Express position and gently press the card into the slot.

Software Installation

Software First Installation

Find the driver install package on your CD and run DpInst.exe in the directory. The installer will guide you through the process. The board will then be detected and installed when the board is physically added to the system. Software First installs are a great way to update existing drivers.

Connect Tech provides QNX 4.X/6.X, Linux, Windows 2000/CE/XP/XP x64/XPe/Server

2003/Server 2003 x64, and Vista support for BlueStorm/Express.

Revision 0.11 27

Connect Tech BlueStorm/Express User Manual

Hardware First Installation

The BlueStorm/Express provides support for QNX 4.X/6.X, Linux, Windows 2000/CE/XP/XP x64/XPe/Server 2003/Server 2003 x64 and Vista. Please refer to the readme.txt

files found in the appropriate directories on the CD containing drivers and documentation. These files contain technical tips or release notes concerning installation and configuration of the device driver. For further information concerning software installation of BlueStorm/Express products please visit the Connect Tech website at www.connecttech.com.

If you are interested in a device driver for an operating system not listed please contact the

Connect Tech Sales Department . Also, visit the Download Zone of the Support Center on the

Connect Tech website for the latest product manuals, installation guides, diagnostic utilities and device driver software.

Windows XP Installation

The following instructions outline how to install the BlueStorm/Express to a computer running

Windows XP. For other operating system installations, consult the readme.txt

and Installation

Guides available on the CD shipped with your board(s).

1. If you haven’t already installed the hardware, turn off the power to your computer and open it to expose the PCI Express card edge (consult your system’s documentation for more information on this step).

2. Choose an available position, and carefully press the card into place. Re-assemble the computer.

3. After installing the BlueStorm/Express, turn on your system and the Found New Hardware

Wizard will appear.

Step 3- Found New Hardware Step 5 – Search for drivers

4. Insert the BlueStorm/Express CD into your drive. Choose what you want the wizard to do by selecting Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Select Next.

5. Choose Select removable media (floppy, CD-ROM) and Include this location in the search and type D:\ Drivers\Win2K-XP, where D is the drive letter of your CD ROM. Now select Finish.

The Found New Hardware Wizard will repeat steps 3 through 5 to complete the installation of the

BlueStorm/Express serial ports. Please follow the on-screen instructions. Installation is complete when no more dialogue boxes appear.

28 Revision 0.11

Connect Tech BlueStorm/Express User Manual

Verify the presence of BlueStorm/Express serial ports in your system by going to Start – Control

Panel – System – Hardware – Device Manager – Multi-port serial adapters. You should see CTI X-

PORT PCI Express UART RS232/485 listed.

Port Settings

You can now access individual port settings such as baud rate, data bits, parity, stop bits and flow control by choosing the appropriate CTI PCI Express UART serial port under Ports in the Device

Manager. Clicking on Advanced while in Port Settings will access port settings for FIFO buffers,

Baud Rate Mapping, and RS-422/485 options (see the RS-422/485 Electrical Interface section for

more details.)

Revision 0.11 29

Connect Tech BlueStorm/Express User Manual

Advanced Port Settings

Use FIFO Buffers

For performance reasons, it is preferred that the FIFO buffers on the UART be used. When the

Use FIFO Buffers option is enabled, the UART will be more efficient at moving data. Other functions such as flow control will be managed by the UART when this option is enabled.

In some cases you may need to disable the FIFO buffers. This issue usually happens when the connected equipment cannot deal with data that is sent with minimal gaps between characters, or cases where the EscapeCommFunction (PortHandle, SETXOFF) function is used.

Receive and Transmit FIFO Settings

These sliders adjust the size of UART FIFO levels used by the CTI PCI Express UART serial ports. You obtain more buffering the further you move the slider to the right. This results in higher throughput, and lower load on the system. Note that high buffer levels can cause communication problems with some applications.

Usually the best setting is to have the receive buffer set at one notch blow the highest setting and the transmit buffer at the highest setting.

Software Settings for RS-422/485

RS-422/485 ports have the following options available:

Full Duplex

In this mode, TxD & RxD are active all the time. This mode is typically used in point-to-point situations much like RS-232. RTS and CTS can be used along with the data signals.

Half Duplex

In this mode the TxD line driver is only enabled when data is transmitted, and RxD is disabled when data is being transmitted. This mode is typically used in either point-to-point (2 wire) connections OR in multi-drop (2 wire) bussed connections. CTS and RTS are not usually used with this configuration.

Multi-Drop

In this mode the TxD line driver is only enabled when data is transmitted and RxD is enabled all the time. This mode is typically used in multi-drop (4 wire) connections. RTS and CTS are not usually used in this configuration.

Note: RS-485 Options are available if your BlueStorm/Express card is built or configured as RS-485, but does not mean the port is currently set this way. Check your card and ensure the jumpers are configured for RS-485 operation before changing the software setting.

30 Revision 0.11

Connect Tech BlueStorm/Express User Manual

Baud Rate Mapping

In some applications, high or unusual baud rates such as 230400 bps cannot be specified directly.

In such a case, we provide two baud rates (110 bps and 300 bps) which can be mapped to different values if necessary.

By default 300 baud is mapped to 230400 baud. In this case, an actual baud rate will be 230400 will be set when 300 baud is specified.

If baud rate mapping is not desired specify the same baud rate in the edit box beside each of the selections. For example 300 would be set to 300 and 110 would be set to 110.

Clock Frequency

The clock frequency used by the current CTI PCI Express UART is shown in the Clock

Frequency box.

COM Number

The driver supports the ability to change COM port names, which is also referred to as COM port mapping. Use this combo box to change the COM port number to be used for the current port.

For example specifying COM5 would set the COM name for this port to COM5.

Note: Ensure the COM name selected is not already in use or the port may not respond properly.
