Getting Started
This chapter provides an overview of the VX1410 IntelliFrame. It includes
installation and configuration information on user-installable options.
Product Description
The VX1410 IntelliFrame is an intelligent, 13-slot, C-size, VXIbus Mainframe.
It fully complies with the VXIbus Specification 1.4 requirements and is VXI
Plug & Play compatible for WIN frameworks. The mainframe has the following
features:
H
High output power supply
H
Intelligent cooling for installed modules
H
High quality auto-configurable backplane
H
Optional adjustable rackmounts and cable trays
H
Optional enhanced monitor
These features are explained in more detail in the following paragraphs.
Power Supply
The VX1410 IntelliFrame provides all VXIbus voltages at levels necessary for
the most demanding ATE applications. The power supply has a volt-ampere
capacity of 1660 VA, but only 872 watts is usable by VXI instrument modules at
any one time (see Appendix A: Power Budget Worksheet). The mainframe
accommodates exclusively digital applications, exclusively analog applications,
or combinations of both.
The power supply plugs directly into the rear of the mainframe and has no cables
to disconnect. Because of this, the power supply can easily be replaced in less
than three minutes, keeping downtime to a minimum. The power supply
automatically sets the ranges for the appropriate input voltage and frequency; no
mechanical switch is required to select the correct line voltage.
You can order the VX1410 IntelliFrame without a power supply (Option 1D).
This option allows you to power the mainframe from an external power supply.
NOTE. If you order your mainframe with Option 1D, all safety, electrical, and
environmental specifications no longer apply for the mainframe.

1–1
Getting Started
Intelligent Cooling
The VX1410 IntelliFrame provides optimal cooling for all installed modules.
The mainframe uses an intelligent, adaptive cooling scheme to efficiently remove
heat while maintaining quiet operation. The mainframe monitors the temperature
rise above each slot and automatically adjusts the fan speed to keep the
temperature rise to approximately 10° C, or less, for the warmest module. You
can also manually set the fan to full speed to provide maximum cooling.
Air is exhausted at the sides of the mainframe allowing you to stack the
mainframe with other rackmount equipment. You don’t have to to worry about
restricting any airflow out of the top of the mainframe or creating a chimney
effect.
Cooling is not wasted on empty slots. IntelliGuides automatically direct air to
only those slots containing modules; empty slots are shut off. The mainframe
directs airflow across each installed module from the bottom to the top of each
slot. Baffles balance the airflow from the front to back and across occupied slots
in the mainframe.
You can easily remove the air filter from the rear of the mainframe within a
matter of seconds. The fans can be easily replaced without disassembling the
entire mainframe.
Backplane
The VX1410 IntelliFrame has an autoconfigurable, solid-state backplane that
uses electronic jumpering of the IACK and BUS GRANT signal lines. There are
no jumpers to move or install on the backplane. This results in a high quality
backplane that is ideal for ATE systems that must be reconfigured frequently.
Full differential distribution of the CLK10 signals provide a clean timing source
for your VXIbus instruments.
Optional Rackmounts and
Cable Trays
You can order the VX1410 IntelliFrame with user-installable rackmounts and
cable trays. Two different cable trays are available, 1.75-inch deep (Option 1U),
and the 3.5-inch deep (Option 2U). The cable trays provide a means to conveniently route cables from the front of the modules to the rear of the mainframe.
Options 1U and 2U include a 1.75-inch and a 3.5-inch butch plate respectively.
You can install Option 1U to provide a 1.75-inch, 2.5-inch, or 4.25-inch deep
cable tray. Similarly, you can install Option 2U to provide a 3.5-inch, 4.25-inch,
or 6.0-inch deep cable tray.
The rackmount adapters let you recess the mainframe from the front panel
mounting surface at specified depths from 0.735 inches to 5.735 inches in
0.5-inch increments. Similarly, you can configure the mainframe to extend out of
the front of the rack at specified depths (0.57 inches to 5.57 inches in 0.5-inch
increments).

Getting Started
You can install the rackmount kits along with the cable trays to provide vertical
cable access to easily route cables to instruments above or below the mainframe
while keeping lead lengths as short as possible.
You can also install an optional Lexan door with the rackmount kit.
NOTE. If you choose to extend the mainframe out of the front of the rack, the
mainframe cannot accept a door.
Instructions for installing the cable trays begin on page 1–7 and instructions for
the rackmounts begin on page 1–12.
Optional Enhanced
Monitor
Options and Upgrade Kits
The optional enhanced monitor (Options 1M and 2M) lets you monitor the
power supply voltages, slot temperature rises, fan speeds, and other VXIbus
system activity via the VXIbus or a rear RS-232 interface. The Option 1M also
includes a 20-character alphanumeric display on the front panel with scroll keys
for manual viewing for mainframe status.

rack) has a date code that ends with LH (for left hand). The right assembly
has a date code ending with RH.
2. Measure the distance between the front and rear rail of the rack.
3. Align the rear bracket to the right slide-out track as shown in Figure 1–6.
Note that the rear bracket has two pairs of mount-through holes. When
aligning the bracket and the track, select a pair of holes that mount the rear
bracket so the flange-to-flange distance (see Figure 1–6) matches the front
rail to rear rail spacing that you just measured in step 2.
NOTE. If necessary, refer to the rackmount kit instructions for detailed installation information.
4. Attach the rear bracket to the right slide-out track using two 10-32 screws
and a bar nut as shown in Figure 1–6. Leave the screws loose so that you can
adjust the overall length of the slide-out track assembly when installing the
mainframe in the rack.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to assemble the left slide-out track assembly.

Configuration
After installing the mainframe you are ready to configure it for your applications.
If you have not already done so, install your VXIbus modules in the mainframe
following the installation guidelines for your VXIbus module.
NOTE. If some VXI modules do not install fully into the mainframe, it may be
necessary to remove the shutter and spring from the card guide. For some
double-wide modules it may be convenient to remove only one of the shutters
instead of disassembling the shutter. To remove the card guides refer a qualified
service person to Procedure 4: Removing the Card Guides beginning on page
7–9 in the Maintenance chapter.
Module Selection and
Design Guidelines
The VX1410 IntelliFrame is UL listed to UL 3111-1 and CAN/CSA C22.2
No. 1010.1 and is IEC 1010-1 compliant. You should use VXIbus modules with
the mainframe that are listed or designed to limit electric shock and fire.
H
Investigate the possibility of fire hazards due to the availability of power
from the mainframe exceeding 150 W per slot. Use similar considerations
for VXIbus Modules that externally receive power greater than 150 W per
slot.
H
Printed wiring boards should be flame rated UL 94V–1 or better.
H
To prevent possible electrical shock, limit the voltage to the mainframe
interface or chassis to less than 60 VDC, 30 VRMS, or 42.4 Vpk.
H
Ensure that temperature measuring inputs provide a means of limiting
unintended voltages that may reach the mainframe interface or chassis to less
than 60 VDC, 30 VRMS, or 42.4 Vpk.

Install Empty Slot Panel
Fillers
If you have any unused (empty) slots in your mainframe, you may install the
empty slot Panel Fillers. Install either the single-wide or double-wide fillers that
came with your mainframe. Use only Tektronix front panels; otherwise the
shutters may activate, effectively robbing airflow from installed modules.
Installing the fillers provides improved cooling for installed modules, improved
EMI shielding, and more accurate air temperature sensing to control the fan
speeds.
Refer to Figure 1–10 for information on installing the slot fillers.

Safety and Chassis
Grounds
The left rear of the VX1410 IntelliFrame has a connection point for the chassis
ground (see Figure 1–11). The safety ground screw must always be in place to
ensure the proper bonding of the power supply to the mainframe. You can use the
chassis ground connection to connect the grounds of one or more instruments to
the mainframe. This ensures a common ground connection between instruments.

Logical Address Switch
Settings
If your mainframe includes the enhanced monitor, you can set the logical
address of the mainframe with the switches on the rear panel. Figure 1–14
shows the locations of the logical address switches on the rear of the
Enhanced Monitor Board.
In most cases you can leave the switches in the factory default position of FF.
This allows the mainframe to dynamically configure the address. However,
make sure that no other module uses the same slot address as the enhanced
monitor board (determined by the position of the MODID jumper) and that
the logical address of the module is not set to FF. See Enhanced Monitor
Board Jumpers on page B–4 for information on configuring the jumpers on
the Enhanced Monitor board.

Functional Check
Use the information in this section to determine that the VX1410 IntelliFrame
operates properly. The functional check consists of checking the power supply
voltages at the 25-pin connector at the rear of the mainframe with a digital
voltmeter.
If your mainframe comes with the Optional Monitor (Option 1M), verify that the
display shows no errors at power on. You can then verify the power supply
voltages with the front-panel digital display and compare the displayed values
against those in Table 1–3.
If your mainframe does not include the Optional Monitor you can measure the
power supply voltages with a digital voltmeter.
Connect one lead of the voltmeter to the supply pins of the 25-pin connector on
the rear panel of the mainframe. Connect the reference lead of the voltmeter to
one of the ground pins. Compare each voltage reading to the values listed in
Table 1–3.

Operating Basics
This chapter provides a brief overview of the VX1410 IntelliFrame including
illustrations and descriptions of switches, indicators, and connectors.
Figure 2–1 shows the front view of the VX1410 IntelliFrame. All of the
mainframe slots are labeled on the top and bottom of the mainframe. Slot 0 is
reserved for the mainframe controller; all other slots are available for any
VXIbus modules.
IntelliGuides on the bottom of each slot automatically open when you install a
module with a front panel in the mainframe to provide cooling for the installed
modules. The guides remain closed for empty slots to direct airflow only where
it is needed.

Operating Basics
The On/Standby switch on the top-left corner of the front panel applies DC
voltages to the mainframe. The switch is a momentary contact switch. The
switch is lighted when DC voltages are applied to the mainframe. You can also
remotely power on or power down the mainframe.
You can configure your mainframe to bypass the On/Standby switch (refer to
Remote Power Switch Configuration in Appendix B of this manual for information on configuring the power switch). The On/Standby switch remains lighted
while power is applied; however, the switch itself no longer controls the
mainframe.
If you ordered your VX1410 IntelliFrame with the Enhanced Monitor (Option 1M), the mainframe includes a 20-character alphanumeric display indicating
the status of the system (see Figure 2–2). The NEXT and PREV push buttons on
the side of the display allow you to scroll through the display selections.
Power Switch
Figure 2–2: Partial Front View of the VX1410 IntelliFrame with Option 1M
Figure 2–3 shows the rear view of the standard VX1410 IntelliFrame.
The AC power connector is located on the bottom left side on the rear of the
mainframe. The AC fuse holder is located just above the power connector.
The chassis ground screw (if installed) can be used to connect multiple
mainframes to a common ground point.
The fan filter is located on the back of the mainframe. The filter slides easily into
the mainframe; there is no need to remove any covers to replace or clean the fan
filter.
Standard Monitor
The Fan Speed switch controls the speed of the system cooling fan. When the
switch is set to the VAR (variable) position, the mainframe automatically
controls the speed of the fan depending on the air temperature and amount of
cooling required by the modules. When the switch is in the FULL position, the
fans operate at full speed.

By momentarily grounding this line, the mainframe will toggle from on to off (or vice
versa). The state changes on the falling edge of the signal. Hold the signal low for at
least 500 ms before releasing. Attach only a momentary switch or an open collector
device to drive this line. The line is pulled up to 1 V internally.

For Options 1M and 2M, the RSV signal is equivalent to the IEEE 488.1 SRQ signal.
The signal is asserted (0) when an enable event is generated; the signal is
unasserted(1) when the event is cleared by reading the event register. This line is an
open collector output. The signal can be stand-alone or multiple mainframes can be
tied together. If you tie multiple mainframes together, each mainframe must be polled
to determine the source of the service request.

Syntax
This section provides an overview of the commands for the VX1410 IntelliFrame and includes the following topics:
H
A brief introduction to SCPI
H
A description of the command syntax
H
Instructions on how to enter commands
The commands for the mainframe are compatible with IEEE-488.1, IEEE-488.2,
and SCPI-1995.0 standards.
SCPI
SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments) is a standard created
by an international consortium of the major manufacturers of test and measurement equipment. SCPI uses IEEE-488.2 syntax to provide common commands
for the same functions of various programmable instruments.
The standard simplifies the task of programming a group of instruments that use
SCPI. Instead of having to learn different commands for every instrument, the
programmer may use the same commands for the same functions of each
instrument.
The controller sends instructions to the instrument in the form of commands or
queries. Commands modify control settings or tell the instrument to perform a
specific action. Queries cause the instrument to send data or status information
back to the controller. A question mark at the end of a command header
identifies it as a query.
Command Syntax
Any instruction that you send to an instrument that complies with SCPI must
have at least three basic elements:
H
Command header
H
Parameter (if required)
H
Message terminator or separator

Syntax
Command Headers
The command header has a hierarchical structure that may be represented by a
command tree (Figure 3–3). An easy-to-remember word called a mnemonic
designates each level of the hierarchy. A colon separates the levels.
The top level of the tree is the root level. A root node is a mnemonic at the root
level. A root node and one or more lower-level nodes form a header path to the
last node called the leaf node.
Root node
Lower-level
nodes
Leaf nodes

The header path and leaf node together form the command header. Figure 3–4
shows the command header for the leaf node indicated in Figure 3–3.

Parameter
You must include values for commands that have parameters. In this manual, the
< > symbols enclose the parameter type when stating the syntax of the command. For example, the syntax of the command in Figure 3–5 includes the
parameter type.

a parameter.
Separate multiple parameters after a command header with a comma. For
example:

NR1
Integers (response parameter)
0, 1, 15
NR2
Decimal numbers (response parameter)
1.2, 3.141516, 6.5
NRf
Integer, decimal, or floating point number as well
as MAX and MIN for setting the largest or
smallest value the instrument allows. (command
parameter)
1, 3E+1, MAX, 2.6
discrete
A list of specific values (command or response
parameter)
P24, P5EXT, N2, ...
String
Alphanumeric characters within quotation marks
(command or response parameter)
“No error”
Parameter values that appear in this manual are often enclosed in curly braces
({}) separated by a vertical line. This vertical line means the same thing as the
word “or.” For example, values for the parameter <Boolean> are
{0|1|OFF|ON}
This is the same thing as saying “0 or 1 or OFF or ON.” Any single value is a
valid parameter.

Syntax
Message Terminator and
Message Separator
In accordance with IEEE 488.2 and the VXIbus specification, the VX1410
IntelliFrame accepts any of the following message terminators:
H
LF^END
Linefeed code (hexadecimal 0A) with the END bit in the
Byte Available command asserted.
H
LF
Linefeed code
H
<dab>^END
Last data byte with the END bit in the Byte Available
command asserted.
A semicolon separates one command from another when the commands appear
on the same line. See Entering Commands.
Entering Commands
The standards that govern the command set for the VX1410 IntelliFrame allows
for a certain amount of flexibility when you enter command. For example, you
can abbreviate many commands or combine commands into one message that
you send to the mainframe. This flexibility, called “friendly listening,” saves
programming time and makes the command set easier to remember and use.
Command Characters
The mainframe is not sensitive to the case of command characters. You can enter
commands in either upper or lower case.
You can precede any command with white space characters. White space
characters include a space or any combination of the ASCII control characters
hexadecimal 00 through 1F except for the character 0A (new line). You must,
however, use at least one space between the parameter and the command header.
Abbreviating Commands
Most commands have a long form and a short form. The listing for each
command in this section shows the abbreviations in upper case. For example,
you can enter the query simply as (or ).
The brackets around a mnemonic indicate that the mainframe assumes this level
of the command header by default. It is not necessary, therefore, for this
mnemonic to appear as part of the header when you send the command. For
example, you can abbreviate the command
to
Because the mainframe assumes that a command at the beginning of a program
message starts from the root, you have the option of beginning the initial
command header with a colon (:).
3–24
VX1410 IntelliFrame Instruction Manual
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Syntax
Combining Commands
You can combine (concatenate) commands and queries using a semicolon (;).
The mainframe executes concatenated commands in the order it receives them.
When you concatenate queries, the mainframe combines the responses into a
single response message. For example, querying both the standard event status
register and the error/event queue in the same program message
STATus:OPERation?;:SYSTem:ERRor?
returns the response message
0;0,"No errors"
If the command that follows the semicolon has a different header path from the
root level, you must use a colon to force a return to the root level:
SYSTem:VERSion?;:TEST:RESult?
If the command that follows the semicolon has the same header path, you may
omit the colon and the path and state only the new leaf node. This makes it
possible, for example, to shorten the concatenated query
SYSTem:TIME:LMAintenance?;:SYSTem:TIME:ON?
into
SYSTem:TIME:LMAintenance?;ON?
The 488.2 common commands that begin with an asterisk (*) may be used
anywhere in a command sequence with no effect on the command header path.
SYSTem:VERSion?;*ESR?
returns
1995.0;16
You can combine commands and queries into the same message. Note, for
example, the following combination which sets the temperature limit and queries
to verify the setting
status:questionable:temperature:limit AMBient,25;limit? AMBient

STATus:QUEStionable:VOLTage:PTR?
Sets or queries the power supply positive transition filter.
You can only set or clear bits 3 and 4 of the transition filter. Setting a bit enables
the corresponding power supply condition to propagate to the event system. Any
failures will display on the front panel readout. If you disable the bits, any failure
in the corresponding power supply will not be reported to the front panel readout
or to the event system.
Bits 0 – 2 and bits 5 – 8 of the transition filter are always enabled. Bit 15 always
returns a 0. The factory default setting is 32743. The +5 V Standby and +5 V

SYSTem:COMMunicate:SERial:LBUFfer
SYSTem:COMMunicate:SERial:LBUFfer?
Sets or queries whether the RS-232 line buffer is enabled. If the buffer is
enabled, all input characters are buffered until a newline character (^J or 0x0A) is
received. Then all characters are available for processing. You can use special
characters to modify the input before the newline character is received. For
example, for a backspace character, use ^H; for a line-delete character, use ^U.
If you enable the line buffer mode, the output character “\n” 0x0A will be
converted to “\n\r” 0x0A 0x0D and the input character will be converted to
“\n” 0x0A.

the Enhanced Monitor. When disabled, asserting the VXI SYSRESET signal
only initializes the Enhanced Monitor VXI Interface; all other Enhanced Monitor
functions are not affected.
The factory default setting is disabled (0).
NOTE. If SYSRESET is enabled and the mainframe is powered down, communication through the RS-232 port is not possible even if an external +5 V is
supplied to the enhanced monitor card. The display will not show the current
status and the scroll buttons will be inoperative. Consequently the enhanced
monitor is inoperative.

Status and Events
The VX1410 IntelliFrame complies with SCPI version 1995.0. You can use the
SYSTem:VERSion? command to read the latest version or the *IDN? command
to read a more detailed identification message.
The VX1410 IntelliFrame supports the Status Byte model shown in Figure 3–11.
The figure shows core of the SCPI-required status reporting capability.
The status registers fit into a 16-bit integer with the most-significant bit always
zero (positive logic). Unused or “don’t care” bits in masks and registers always
return zeros when queried.
The Operation Status register and the Questionable Status register outputs are
logically ORed together as shown in Figure 3–11.
The Operation Status register contains information on the normal operation of
the VX1410 IntelliFrame. In particular, bit 8 contains summary information on
the VXI Monitor status register (see Figure 3–12). The VXI Monitor Status
register monitors activity on bits 0 through 3.

The Questionable Status register contains information on the quality of the
signals within the mainframe. In the event problems occur within the mainframe
(for example, one of the power supplies is not working properly), you could
program the mainframe to warn you of possible problems.
There are three status registers that provide summary information to the
Questionable Status register: the Voltage Status register, the Temperature Status
register, and the Blower Status register.
The Voltage Status register provides status information on the individual power
supply voltages (see Figure 3–13). You can detect problems with any one of the
power supply voltages by monitoring the corresponding bit in the Voltage Status
register. If a problem occurs, the corresponding bit will be set in the register.

Status and Events
Error and Event Messages
Table 3–20 on page 3–137 lists some of the error messages that you may
encounter while sending commands and queries to the VX1410 IntelliFrame.
The VX1410 IntelliFrame reports the following categories of errors:
H
Command Errors
H
Execution Errors
H
Device Specific Errors
H
Query Errors
Command Errors
Command errors have error codes within the range of –100 and –199. These
errors indicate syntax errors. The syntax errors can be due to the command parser
detecting an IEEE 488.2 syntax error or an unrecognized header was received.
Command errors may also occur when you attempt to send an unimplemented
IEEE 488.2 common command.
Execution Errors
Execution errors have error codes within the range of –200 and –299. These
errors are detected by the VX1410 IntelliFrame execution control block.
Execution errors can occur when a program data element following a header was
evaluated as outside of the legal input range or when the program data element is
inconsistent with the capabilities of the mainframe.
Device Specific Errors
Device specific errors have error codes within the range of –300 and –399. These
errors may indicate that some operations failed to complete due to abnormal
hardware or firmware conditions.
Query Errors
3–136
Query errors have error codes within the range of –400 and –499. These errors
indicate that the VX1410 IntelliFrame detected a problem with the message
exchange protocol. Query errors set the query error bit in the Event Status
register. These errors may result when you attempt to read data from the output
queue when no input is present or pending. The errors may also occur when the
data in the output queue is lost.

Examples
This section describes a few brief examples on using some of the commands
described in this manual. These examples are intended to show how the
commands from the Command section work together to complete a task.
Example 1: Monitor Power Supply Voltages
This example shows how to monitor the mainframe power supply voltages
1. Send the STATus:QUEStionable:VOLTage:ENABle command to enable the
bits in the Voltage Enable register. This command lets you monitor all
voltage limits.
2. Send the STATus:QUEStionable:ENABle command to enable the bit 0 in the
Questionable Enable register. If any problems occur with any of the power
supplies, bit 0 of the register will be set.
Example 2: Monitor the Delta Temperature
This example shows how to monitor the delta temperature in slots 0, 1, 2, and 3.
The maximum allowable delta temperature for slots 0 and 1 is 10 °C; the
maximum allowable delta temperature for slots 2 and 3 is 5 °C.
1. Send the STATus:QUEStionable:TEMPerature:LIMit command to set the
temperature limits for the four slots (one command per slot):
2. Send the STATus:QUEStionable:TEMPerature:ENABle command to enable
the bits in the Temperature Enable register. This command allows you to
measure temperatures for the individual slots.

Examples
3. Send the STATus:QUEStionable:ENABle command to enables bit 4 in the
Questionable Enable register. If any problems occur with any of the slots, the
corresponding bit will be set.
Example 3: Summarize Status Information
The following example shows how to return a summary of the status information
using the STAT:SEVent command.
Send the STAT:SEVent? query and note the returned information. For example,
assume that the query returns a decimal value of 123. Decoding the information
indicates that both fans failed and that the temperatures for slots 0 through 3
exceeded the specified limits.

Theory of Operation
This section provides a brief overview of the theory of operation for the VX1410
IntelliFrame. Figure 7–12 shows the functional block diagram of the mainframe
and the major components.
Standard Mainframe
The standard mainframe contains the following major components:
H
Power supply
H
Backplane
H
Standard Monitor board
H
Temperature Sense board
Power Supply. The power supply provides all voltages and currents to the
mainframe. The power supply connects to the backplane at J1 and J2 through the
Power Supply Interface board. The power supply and the Power Supply Interface
board can be replaced as a single unit.
Backplane. The backplane (A4) provides all the connections to module slots 0
through 12 in the mainframe. It also has connections to all other circuit boards
and modules in the mainframe.
The front panel On/Standby DC switch connects to one of two connectors at the
top of the backplane. When the switch is connected to J22, the switch controls
the power in the mainframe. When the switch is connected to J23, the power-on
functions are controlled by an external source through the 25-pin connector on
the Monitor board. Although the switch still illuminates when power is applied
to the mainframe, the on/off function of the switch is disabled. (Refer to Remote
Power Switch Configuration on page B–1 for information on powering the
mainframe with a remote momentary switch.)
The backplane connects to the Power Supply Interface board at J20 and J21. A
34-wide ribbon cable at 0J4 on the backplane connects to J16 on the Temperature
Sense board. Connectors 0J1, 0J2, and 0P3 carry instrument monitoring
information from the backplane to the Monitor board.

or 2M
If your mainframe includes Option 1M, the Enhanced Monitor board replaces the
Standard Monitor board. Option 1M also includes a front panel display board.
Enhanced Monitor Board. The Enhanced Monitor board (A5) has similar circuitry
and connectors as the Standard Monitor board. The Enhanced Monitor board
includes a nine-pin RS-232 port to connect to an external host. Address switches
near the bottom rear of the board allow you to select the VXIbus address. A
green READY indicator and amber ACCESSED indicator located at the bottom
of the board indicate the operating status of the mainframe.
The Enhanced Monitor board also has circuitry to allow you to communicate
with the mainframe with SCPI commands. These commands are detailed in the
Reference section of this manual.
An Auxiliary Power input connector is available to connect 5 volts from an
outside source to power the communication circuitry in the event of power
failure of the mainframe.
Monitor Display Board. The Monitor Display board (A6) has a 20-character
alphanumeric display that displays the system messages on the front panel.
Scroll keys allow you to scroll through the messages one at a time. The display
board connects to the backplane through the ribbon cable at J18.
NOTE. Mainframes with Option 2M: If your mainframe includes Option 2M,
there will be no front panel display. Otherwise, it is functionally identical to
Option 1M described above.

Appendix B: Special Configuration Options
This appendix contains information for configuring your VX1410 IntelliFrame
for specific situations not documented earlier in this manual. These special
configuration options require you to disassemble parts of the mainframe to
access jumpers or circuit boards. Refer to the Maintenance chapter for detailed
information on the assembly and disassembly procedures. You may also need to
refer to the exploded views.
The information in this section is intended for use by qualified service personnel.
Read the Safety Summary at the front of this manual and the static precautions on
page 7–1 before attempting any procedures in this appendix. Refer to the
Operating Basics chapter for information on the location of controls, indicators,
and connectors used with the mainframe.
CAUTION. To avoid damage from high currents on the backplane, always power
off the mainframe and disconnect the power cord before performing any of the
configuration procedures for the mainframe described in this appendix.
Remote Power Switch Configuration
You can control the power-on function of the mainframe by the front panel
On/Standby switch and from a remote momentary switch through the connections of the 25-pin rear panel connector. If you connect a remote switch to
pins 5 and 18 (return side) of the 25-pin connector, the remote switch and the
front panel On/Standby switch control the power-on functions of the mainframe.
You can also disable the front panel switch and control the power-on functions
from the remote switch only. The backplane has two connectors that control the
power-on functions. If the front panel switch is connected to the backplane at
J22, the switch controls the power-on functions. If the switch is connected to
J23, the front panel switch is disabled, however, the light still illuminates when
the mainframe is powered on. To configure the mainframe to disable the front
panel On/Standby switch, perform the following steps:
1. Disconnect the power cord from the mainframe.
2. Remove the cover from the mainframe.
3. Refer to Figure B–1 and locate the two connectors at the top of the backplane.
4. Disconnect the On/Standby switch cable at J22 and connect it to J23.

8°/10° and 13°/15° Jumper on the Standard Monitor Board
Jumper J11 on the Standard Monitor board allows you to further define the
temperature sensitivity of the Temperature Sense board. The jumper determines
the maximum temperature rise in the mainframe. Figure B–2 shows the jumper
location on the Standard Monitor board. The jumper is shipped in the 8°/10°
position.
You can move the jumper to the 13°/15° position if there is a high temperature
rise expected in the modules or when the ambient room temperature will not
exceed the mainframe maximum temperature. Moving the jumper to the 13°/15°
position reduces the fan speed and noise.

You can also select the source of the +5 V Standby voltage. If you source the
+5 V Standby voltage from the +5 V external supply (Monitor Backup Power
Supply connector), then the external supply will provide the backplane with the
+5 V external voltage (1 A maximum). If you source the +5 V Standby voltage
from the 25-pin connector, you must provide the +5 V to pins 8 and 21 of the
25-pin connector. The default jumper setting is to provide the voltage from the
external source (+5 V external power supply).
The Enhanced Monitor can answer to the slot 1 or slot 12 MODID line for the
VXI configuration manager. The default position is slot 12 since it is most likely
to be empty. Slot 1 is available if you use an embedded controller.

Appendix B: Special Configuration Options
Remote Power Supply Installation
If you ordered your mainframe with Option 1D (Delete Power Supply) you can
power the mainframe from a remote power source. You need to assemble a cable or
a circuit board to connect through the rear of the mainframe to the backplane.
NOTE. When the VX1410 IntelliFrame is configured with Option 1D, all
product specifications no longer apply. To be VXI compliant, the power
supply that provides power to the chassis must adhere to the specifications of
the VXI standard and provide appropriate control signals (ACFail*, SysReset*, and On/Stndby) in a manner that is compatible with the VXI standard
and the circuitry that interfaces with the signals within the mainframe.
After building and installing the connector, make sure that you block the air path
through the vacant power supply and that you reconnect the fans and the fan
housing before applying power to the mainframe. You can use the bracket
available with Option 1D to block the air flow. If necessary, design the power
supply cables so that they can be routed through the AC power connector on the
Fan Assembly.
CAUTION. To prevent damage to the mainframe, do not operate the mainframe
with the fans disconnected. The mainframe will overheat if there is inadequate
airflow.
To maintain safe operation when the mainframe is configured for Option 1D, the
power supply that provides the power to the chassis should not exceed the DC
Current Capacity (IMP ) listed in Table 4–2 on page 4–2. The short circuit
capacity of each voltage should not exceed 120% of the IMP rating. The total
power dissipation of the chassis, with modules installed, should not exceed 925 W.
The mating connector for the backplane is a DIN41612 Style M connector with
ten high-current female contacts and six signal pins. The contacts can be either
solder cups, wire-crimp, or ECB solder tails. Figure B–4 shows the backplane
connector.
WARNING. To avoid shock hazards when the mainframe is configured with
Option 1D, connect the chassis to earth ground through one of the grounding
screws located on the left rear of the mainframe (see Figure 1–11 on page 1–21
for the location of the grounding screws.)

See Shared Memory Protocol.
STARX
Two (2) bi-directional, 50 , differential ECL lines that provide for
inter-module asynchronous communication. These pairs of timed and
matched delay lines connect slot 0 and each of slots 1 through 12 in a
mainframe. The delay between slots is less than 5 ns, and the lines are well
matched for timing skew.
STARY
Two (2) bi-directional, 50 , differential ECL lines that provide for
inter-module asynchronous communication. These pairs of timed and
matched delay lines connect slot 0 and each of slots 1 through 12 in a
mainframe. The delay between slots is less than 5 ns, and the lines are well
matched for timing skew.
STST
STart/STop protocol; used to synchronize modules.
SYNC100
A Slot 0 signal that is used to synchronize multiple devices with respect to a
given rising edge of CLK100. These signals are individually buffered and
matched to less than 2 ns of skew.
Synchronous Communications
A communications system that follows the “command-response” cycle
model. In this model, a device issues a command to another device; the
second device executes the command; then returns a response. Synchronous
commands are executed in the order received.
SYSFAIL*
A signal line on the VMEbus that is used to indicate a failure by a device.
The device that fails asserts this line.
System Clock Driver
A functional module that provides a 16 MHz timing signal on the Utility Bus.
System Hierarchy
The tree structure of the commander/servant relationships of all devices in
the system at a given time. In the VXIbus structure, each servant has a
commander. A commander may also have a commander.

Glossary
Test Monitor
An executive routine that is responsible for executing the self tests, storing any
errors in the ID-ROM, and reporting such errors to the Resource Manager.
Test Program
A program, executed on the system controller, that controls the execution of
tests within the test system.
Test System
A collection of hardware and software modules that operate in concert to test
a target DUT.
TTLTRG
Open collector TTL lines used for inter-module timing and communication.
VXIbus Subsystem
One mainframe with modules installed. The installed modules include one
module that performs slot 0 functions and a given complement of instrument
modules. The subsystem may also include a Resource Manager.
Word Serial Protocol
A VXIbus word oriented, bi-directional, serial protocol for communications
between message-based devices (that is, devices that include communication
registers in addition to configuration registers).
Word Serial Communications
Inter-device communications using the Word Serial Protocol.
WSP
See Word Serial Protocol.
10-MHz Clock
A 10 MHz, ±100 ppm timing reference. Also see CLK10.
100-MHz Clock
A 100 MHz, ±100 ppm clock synchronized with CLK10. Also see CLK100.
488-To-VXIbus Interface
A message based device that provides for communication between the
IEEE-488 bus and VXIbus instrument modules.
