This warranty does not apply to any products which have been repaired or
altered by persons other than repair personnel authorized by Advantech,
or which have been subject to misuse, abuse, accident or improper installation. Advantech assumes no liability under the terms of this warranty as
a consequence of such events.
Because of Advantech’s high quality-control standards and rigorous testing, most of our customers never need to use our repair service. If an
Advantech product is defective, it will be repaired or replaced at no
charge during the warranty period. For out-of-warranty repairs, you will
be billed according to the cost of replacement materials, service time and
freight. Please consult your dealer for more details.
If you think you have a defective product, follow these steps:
1.
Collect all the information about the problem encountered. (For
example, CPU speed, Advantech products used, other hardware
and software used, etc.) Note anything abnormal and list any
onscreen messages you get when the problem occurs.
2.
Call your dealer and describe the problem. Please have your manual, product, and any helpful information readily available.
3.
If your product is diagnosed as defective, obtain an RMA (return
merchandize authorization) number from your dealer. This allows
us to process your return more quickly.
4.
Carefully pack the defective product, a fully-completed Repair and
Replacement Order Card and a photocopy proof of purchase date
(such as your sales receipt) in a shippable container. A product
returned without proof of the purchase date is not eligible for warranty service.

Introduction
This chapter provides detailed specifications for the PCI COMMUNICATION cards.
Sections include:
• Description
• Features
• Specifications
• Ordering Information
• Selection Guide
Chapter 1 Introduction
1.1 Description
The PCI Local Bus is a high-performance bus that provides a processorindependent data path between the CPU and high-speed peripherals. PCI
is a robust inter-connect mechanism designed specifically to accommodate multiple high performance peripherals for series communication,
SCSI, LAN, etc.
Advantech serial communication card leverages the " Plug and Play "
capability defined in the PCI 2.1/2.2 bus specification. The board requires
only one PCI slot within the personal computer and provides independent
serial channels. All channels are addressed in a continuous 32 byte I/O
block for simplified software access. And, all channels may also share
one PCI interrupt. An interrupt status register is available for determining
the interrupt source.
The Advantech PCI communication card comes standard with 16PCI952/
954 UARTs containing 128 byte FIFOs which are available as an option.
These upgraded FIFOs greatly reduce CPU overhead and are an ideal
choice for heavy multitasking environments.
16PCI952/954
The 16PCI952/954 is a high performance Twin/Quad UART with an onchip PCI interface. Targeted at PCI-based serial and parallel expansion
cards, PCI-architecture computer systems and embedded applications, the
16PCI952/954 integrates a PCI bus interface together with two/four of
16C950 high performance UARTs, a bi-directional parallel port and a
local bus bridge function. This single-chip solution replaces five or more
integrated circuits used in today products, giving performance, cost and
size advantages for new designs.

Hardware
Configuration
This chapter provides information on
the hardware configuration of PCI
COMMUNICATION cards.
Sections include:
• Initial Inspection
• Jumper and Switch Locations
• Jumper Settings
• Card Installation
Chapter 2 Hardware Configuration
2.1 Initial Inspection
You should find the following items inside the shipping package:
PCI communication interface card
Industrial Communication Driver, Utility and PCI communication card
user manual in ICOM CD-ROM
We carefully inspected the PCI communication card series mechanically
and electrically before we shipped it. It should be free of marks and
scratches and in perfect working order on receipt.
As you unpack the PCI communication card series, check it for signs of
shipping damage (damaged box, scratches, dents, etc.). If it is damaged or
it fails to meet specifications, notify our service department or your local
sales representative immediately. Also notify the carrier. Retain the shipping carton and packing material for inspection by the carrier. After
inspection we will make arrangements to repair or replace the unit.
When you handle the PCI communication card series, remove it from its
protective packaging by grasping the rear metal panel. Keep the antivibration packing. Whenever you remove the card from the PC, store it in
this package for protection.
Discharge your body’s static electric charge by
touching the back of the grounded chassis of the
system unit (metal) before handling the board. You
should avoid contact with materials that hold a static
charge such as plastic, vinyl and styrofoam. Handle
the board only by its edges to avoid static damage to
its integrated circuits. Avoid touching the exposed
circuit connectors. We also recommend that you use
a grounded wrist strap and place the card on a static
dissipative mat whenever you work with it.

2.3 Jumper Settings
This section tells how to set the jumpers to configure your card. It gives
the card default configuration and your options for each jumper.
2.3.1 How to Set Jumpers
You configure your card to match the needs of your application by setting
jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electric switch. It consists of
two metal pins and a small metal clip (often protected by a plastic cover)
that slides over the pins to connect them. To “close” a jumper you connect
the pins with the clip. To “open” a jumper you remove the clip.
Sometimes a jumper will have three pins, labeled 1, 2 and 3. In this case
you would connect either pins 1 and 2 or 2 and 3.
You may find a pair of needle-nose pliers useful for setting the jumpers.
If you have any doubts about the best hardware configuration for your
application, contact your local distributor or sales representative before
you make any changes.
Figure 2.19: How to Set Jumpers

Chapter 2
2.3.2 Default Settings
The board is shipped with default settings. If you need to change these
settings, however, see the following sections. Otherwise, you can simply

2.3.3 Mode Selection by Jumper/DIP Settings
RS-232/422/485 Selection (for PCI-1612A/B/AU/U/CU)
Should you wish to configure the PCI-1612A/B/AU/U/CU to operate in
the RS-232 mode, the upper two pins of the 12*3 pin jumper should be
connected. For RS-422/ RS-485 mode selection, the bottom two pins of
the 12*3 pin jumper should be connected as shown below.
Figure 2.21: PCI-1612 Series RS-232/422/485 Selection
RS-422/485 Selection (for PCI-1601/1602/1611/1612/1622)
You can set each port individually for either RS-422 (the default) or RS485 operation. The figure 2.11 shows the jumper setting. See section 2.2
"Jumper and Switch Locations" from figure 2.1 to figure 2.17 for help to
locate the jumpers.
Figure 2.22: RS-422/485 Selection by Jumper Setting
31
Chapter 2
PCI-1603 RS-232/Current-loop Mode Selection
For RS-232 mode operations, the jumpers will be set as the default mode.
The jumpers on the 10*2 pin jumper must be set to A, B, C, D and E.
Figure 2.23: PCI-1603 RS-232 Mode Jumper Setting
To enable the channel to operate in the current-loop mode, you should set
F, G, H, I and J on the 10*2 pin jumpers.
Figure 2.24: PCI-1603 Current-loop Mode Jumper Setting
Then decide which mode the Tx and Rx will operate in. The options are
active or passive. In the active mode, the Tx or Rx will generate the current requirement for data transfer over the link. In the passive mode, the
current is generated by the card at the other end of the link.
A and B are set to be active Rx, and E is set to be active Tx.
Figure 2.25: Active Mode Jumper Setting
PCI-COMMUNICATION User Manual
32
C and D are set to be passive Rx, and F is set to be passive Tx.
Figure 2.26: Passive Mode Jumper Setting
You may configure both Tx and Rx on one port to operate in the same
mode, or you can configure each Tx and Rx on one port to operate in different modes.
If you set PCI-1603 to the current-loop mode, plug the card to your
device and turn on the device, both LEDs Rx1 and Rx2 on top corner of
PCI-1603 board are lighten, indicating that current-loop mode is enabled!
Note:
When either channel is configured in the RS-232
mode, the two associated Tx/Rx active/passive jumpers will be inoperable.
Enable mode selection
You set the Enable mode using two, four or eight position DIP switches,
one for each port. If the switches are set to "AUTO", the driver automatically senses the direction of the data flow and switches the direction of
transmission. No handshaking is necessary.
If DIP switches are set to "On," the driver is always enabled, and always
in high or low status. The user must select a mode before beginning RS422 applications.

Terminator resistor setup (for PCI-1601/1602/1611/1612/1622)
You can install terminator resistors if necessary to match impedance.
Each signal line (Tx, Rx) has a separate resistor.
Especially in fields with serious electric noise, installing terminal resistors is helpful to stabilize communications. Make sure that both sides of
the RS-485 communication ports are installed on BUS. See details in
Chapter 5.2.2 and 5.2.3

Each Com Port tab represents a specific port you have selected for test
and configuration. On the tab, you can see the Transfer Mode, Port Status, and Message Logo area.
Transfer Modes
You can specify the transfer mode to be Normal, loopback (active) or
loopback (passive).
Normal—allows data to be transmitted and received simultaneously. The
data reception rate is helpful in identifying the performance of a communication card installed on your system.
Loopback- In loopback mode a series of special data will be transmitted,
which are expected to appear on the receiving end. Using the loopback
mode, you can check the integrity of received data and find whether any
error occurred on the transmission line. The active loopback and passive
loopback must work in pair to enable the loopback mode. When a port
operates as active loopback mode, it will send data first and receive data
later. Another port, which operates as passive loopback, will retransmit
any received data on the Rx line and then send these data onto the Tx line.
These two modes will form a logical loop and help to verify the integrity
of data transmitted over the communication link.

4.3.4 Port Status
DTR (data-terminal-ready)
DSR (data-set-ready)
RTS (request-to-send)
CTS (clear-to-send)
CD (carrier-detect)
For RS-232 specifications, DTR and RTS are for output signals and can
be toggled on and off by double-clicking the labels (such as DTR, DSR,
RTS, CTS, CD) under the red/green marks. However, if you are using
RTS/CTS for flow control to run the test, you will see the RTS mark
appear in black. This indicates that the RTS can no longer be toggled on/
off since it is controlled by driver itself.
A black mark represents that the function is controlled by the driver itself and therefore not controllable by software.
4.3.5 Message Logo
On the Message Logo area, you can see the relevant messages about the
port(s) you have selected.
For information about specific messages in this area, please refer to Section 4.5, Messages on the Status Bar and Message Logo area.

5.2 Wiring
5.2.1 RS-232 Signal Wiring
Since the RS-232 interface is not strictly defined, many devices have their
own connection methods which may ignore some signal lines or define
reserved lines for other functions. It is best to refer to the user’s manual
for your device for installation instructions. You may find the following
helpful.
In general, DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) refers to the device that is
leading the communication. Examples include PC’s, terminals and some
printers. DCE refers to the device being communicated with or controlled. Examples include modems, DSU’s (digital service units), printers
and lab/factory equipment.
In some situations you may be able to get by with just three lines: data on
TXD, a signal ground and a handshaking line. Examples are printer or
plotter connections, troubleshooting and situations where you require
only one-wire communication.

For DTE to DCE connections, use a straight through cable (i.e., you don't
have to reverse lines 2 and 3, lines 4 and 5, and lines 6 and 20 since, in
general, the DCE RS-232 interfaces are reversed themselves).

5.2.2 RS-422 Signal Wiring
The RS-422 interface wiring is based on one-to-one principles. The transmit lines on one side connect to the receive lines on the other side, and
vice versa. With RS-422, you can transmit and receive data simultaneously (full duplex). The connections are as follows:

Terminator Resistors Setup
The signals DSR, DTR and DCD are shorted internally on the PCI-1601/
1602/1611/1612/1622 cards when operating in RS-422 mode.
A user can solder in termination resistors if necessary for impedance
matching. The card has two mounting spaces for termination resistors,
but no resistors are installed at the factory. Each pair of signal lines has a
separate resistor (RxD+/-, TxD+/-).
PCI-COMMUNICATION User Manual

5.2.3 RS-485 Signal Wiring
The RS-485 standard supports half-duplex communication. This means
that just two wires are needed to both transmit and receive data. Handshaking signals (such as RTS, Request To Send) are normally used to
control the direction of the data flow and to switch the transmission
accordingly. In RS-485 mode, the PCI-1601/1602/1611/1612/1622 cards
automatically sense the direction of the data flow and switch the transmission direction — no handshaking is necessary. This means a user can
build an RS-485 network with just two wires. This RS-485 control is
completely transparent to the user. The software written for half duplex
RS-232 works without any modification.
Figure 5.2: RS-485 Wiring Topology
Termination Resistor Setup
You can install termination resistors if necessary for impedance matching. The card has mounting spaces for termination resistors, but no resistors are installed at the factory. Depending on your application you may
need to solder in a single resistor to handle the DATA+/DATA- pair (and
a corresponding resistor on the other end of the connection). The
value of the resistor should equal the characteristic impedance of the signal wires (approximately 120 Ohms or 300 Ohms).
