Optical communications are easily affected by external light sources, weak batteries, transfer distance,
transfer angle, etc.
Any of these conditions may cause a data transfer failure, incomplete, missing or incorrect data. Make
sure that the wireless interface is away from direct sunlight and other strong light source.
!"Do not terminate arbitrarily during file transfer process between DUT and computers until finished.
Otherwise DUT internal data integrity may be damaged, which is due to the violation of DUT’s.
!"Do not expose the unit to moisture, as this will damage the internal circuitry.
!"Do not expose the unit to extreme temperatures. It should not be placed in direct sunlight or in a
closed vehicle, neither should it be placed near heaters nor other heat sources.
!"Do not store the unit in a humid or dusty place.
!"Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the unit. Do not use a wet cloth or any solvent.
!"Do not drop the unit or handle the unit carelessly.
CAUTION:
!"Never touch the pins of computer connection terminal. The internal circuits can be damaged by a
static electricity discharge. If this device requires any servicing, use only an ACTiSYS service dealer,
an ACTiSYS approved service facility, or an ACTiSYS repair service.
!"When exchanging data with host computer, be sure the appropriate serial communication port is
available and is not in conflict with other peripheral device or software.
Here the settings for the R11 ~ R18 are displayed. When power is thrown for any resistor
besides R13~R15, they will be sampled at the time NMI is reinstated. After that, there will be no
problems with operation even if the settings are changed; however the settings will become invalid.

It is possible to set the RS-232C communication speed with R13, R14, and R15.
However when the control line extension mode of R16 is not installed, the settings will be valid for all
self-channels. But, when it is 0R, if the R11 and R12’s IrDA mode setting is primary or primary /
secondary channel, then the self-channel with be valid. If it is set to the secondary channel, regardless of
the communication speed setting, the other device will set the communication speed. (Figure 2-2).
When the communication rate has established an IrDA link, it will be sampled, so it is okay to change the
speed settings while it is in operation. In the event that the speed is changed while communicating, the
current communication link will be severed and with any following communication the new speed will
become valid.

In order to confirm that the device is operating correctly there is an indicate function installed.
By looking at the flash of the LED you can check the state of communication.
There are 2 flashing speeds, during standby on the secondary channel there is no flashing. If the primary
channel commences discovery, it will flash once every 3 seconds (for approx. 0.7 seconds). After
discovering the other device and communication becomes possible it will flash every 0.4 seconds.

Many PC peripherals use serial cable to communicate with PC. They cannot talk with Infrared Devices,
such as IrDA capable PC, notebooks. ACT IR-100S’s aim is to make those devices into IrDA compatible
product by simply connecting it to their serial port. And these devices with IR100S COM-port IrDA bridge
can communicate with PC wirelessly and don't need to modify neither hardware nor software
This simply test uses two PCs, one is IrDA installed and another is not. Both Run Windows
HyperTerminal Program (one of the communication accessories). You should be able to type on one
keyboard and see results on another PC's screen, or transfer files between them through the infrared
connection.

1. Connect all devices as FigA-1
2. Switch on PC#2 and the power supply of 100s.
3. Run HyperTerminal on PC#2. Set its properties according to the above configuration guide (Fig
A-2 ..4).
The LED DTR and RTS of the RS232 Mini Tester should be Red (True) when it is connected. The
DTR will go to Green (False) if you disconnect it. When both DTR and RTS are True (high level) the
100S will begin discovery if you set it to Primary or Primary/Secondary. The 100S' LED will blink once
every 3 seconds.
4. Switch on PC#1.
You will see the IR Found icon and hear the sound of found IR device when windows has started.
Open the IR Monitor, you will see the Status are:

5. Run HyperTerminal on PC#1 now. Set its properties according to the above configuration guide.
Click the Call icon to connect to the assigned IR port. The LED DSR and CTS of the RS232 Mini
Tester on PC#2 side should turn to Red (True) when it is connected and the 100S' LED will blink once
every half second.
6. Type keys on PC#1's keyboard and you should see the results will display on the remote
HyperTerminal's screen. If you have got strange letters, the baud rate you set for the HyperTerminal
is not the same as 100s.
7. File Transfer: Click the menu Transfer and Receive File on PC#1 …
Click the menu Transfer and Send File on PC#2 (Fig A-5)…
The operation is similar to use cable connection.
The real data transfer speed depends on the lower one of IR speed and RS-232 speed. For example,
the IR Speed is limited to 57.6kbps and the RS-232 speed of 100s is 9600, the effective speed
(throughput) is 9570bps (Fig A-6). If the RS-232 speed set to 115.2kbps. The throughput would be
around 5kbytes/Sec.

If your device has no built-in modem and wants to connect to Internet, normally you will buy an external
modem and use cable to connect them together. But some mobile devices are so small that have no
RS-232 port for cable connection. Most of them have IrDA wireless built-in interface so that they can
connect with an IrDA modem without cable.
One usage of ACT IR-100S is to make those normal modem into IrDA compatible product by simply
connecting it to their serial port. And these devices with IR100S COM-IrDA bridge can communicate with
PC or your IrDA-cable devices wirelessly and don't need to modify neither hardware nor software
This simply test uses one PC with IrDA adapter with driver installed and an external modem connected
with IR100S. On PC uses 'Make New Connection' wizard of Dial-Up Networking to create a new dial-up
connection to your ISP through the IR modem. It should be able to find the modem, dial phone number,
establish a connection to internet and browse the web.
