BlueStorm Installation Overview
There are three stages to installing your BlueStorm card:
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 into your computer. Please
note that you should configure any jumper settings prior to installing the board.
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.
Hardware Configuration
Interrupts and Memory Address Selection
All BlueStorm products are PCI cards. Therefore, the host computer’s BIOS will automatically
set interrupts and memory addresses when you reboot after installation.
RS-422/485 Electrical Interface Configuration
Some BlueStorm adapters support RS-422/485 communication, as outlined below. (See Figure 1
through to Figure 6 for configuration jumper block locations). It may be necessary to configure
the card to match your particular wiring configuration. Please see the “Jumper Configuration for
BlueStorm” section below for configuration examples.
Full Duplex Mode
In this mode, TxD+/- and RxD+/- are being driven to a known level at all times. This mode is
typically used in point-to-point situations much like RS-232.
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 2wire connections OR in multi-drop 2-wire bus connections. This mode requires software setup
in Control Panel – System – Hardware – Device Manager – Ports – CTI PCI UART. Click on Advanced under
Port Settings after the driver is installed. (See multi-drop slave below).
Revision 0.10

BlueStorm Installation Guide, Connect Tech Inc.
Multi-drop Slave Mode
In this mode the TxD+/- line driver is enabled only when data is transmitted and RxD+/- is
enabled at all times. 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 UART. Click on Advanced under Port Settings.
Line Bias/Termination
The RS-422/485 transceivers, both 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. Termination may also be required depending on your wiring
configuration. Each case must be evaluated to determine which options to enable.

Jumper Configuration for BlueStorm
Jumper configuration options will vary by model. BlueStorm/LP RS-422/485 cards feature the
jumper layout listed in Figure 7, while BlueStorm/SP and BlueStorm/SP Opto cards use the
jumper layout in Figure 8. Lastly, BlueStorm/SP RJ-11 uses the jumper layout used in Figure 9.
BlueStorm ports and cards that communicate only in RS-232 modes do not have jumper blocks
installed.
Figure 7 demonstrates a common set of jumper configurations for a BlueStorm/LP RS-422/485
card. BlueStorm/LP RS-232 ports do not require jumper configuration. The four RS-422/485
ports are set as follows: Port 1 is set for half duplex, Port 2 is set for half duplex, Port 3 is set for
full duplex and Port 4 is set for multi-drop slave.
Figure 8 indicates a common set of jumper configurations for BlueStorm/SP and BlueStorm/SP
Opto. The four ports are set as follows: Port 1 is set for RS-232, Port 2 is set for half duplex,
Port 3 is set for full duplex and Port 4 is set for multi-drop slave.

TxD Control
Install this jumper to enable the RS-485 transmitter only when sending data. This mode is useful
for multi-drop and 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 two-wire half-duplex operation to prevent the transmitting device from receiving its
own data as it sends. 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 120 or 150 ohm terminator (model dependent) 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.
TxD ± Termination
Install this jumper to enable a 120 or 150 ohm resistor (model dependent) across the TxD+ and
TxD- pins of the corresponding port.
Auto 485 (BlueStorm/LP 2 port RS-422/485 models and BlueStorm/SP Opto models only)
Install this jumper to tri-state the transmitters of ports configured as RS-485 half duplex or
multi-drop slave when the computer powers up or is reset. This jumper will be overridden once
12
Revision 0.10
BlueStorm Installation Guide, Connect Tech Inc.
the operating system is booted by the current driver/software RS-485 mode. The jumper is used
to ensure that a port will power-on tri-stated. For example, the RS-485 mode selection in the
Windows control panel will override this jumper setting once a port is opened.
The BlueStorm/LP RS-422/485 uses JC to configure Auto-485 mode, while the BlueStorm/SP
Opto uses J1.
Note that on BlueStorm/LP RS-422/485 models the Auto 485 is a single
jumper. The second site is not in use. See Figure 1 for the location of this
jumper. On the BlueStom/SP Opto, the first position controls the first port pair,
while the second position controls the second port pair.
Power-On Tri-state (BlueStorm/SP Models Only, Excludes
BlueStorm/SP RJ-11)
BlueStorm/SP models offer a power-on tri-state similar to the Auto-485 mode listed above. The
BlueStorm/SP will tri-state a port configured as RS-485 full duplex or RS-485 multi-drop slave.
This is meant to ensure compatibility with our legacy Blue Heat/PCI cards for customers
upgrading to the newer BlueStorm family.
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 of J1 to
control Port 2, etc. Ports will not come out of tri-state until the driver opens the associated port
and begins transmission.
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/LP/SP/SP Opto CD.

Technical Tip:
Please ensure that you terminate the CTS signal if your application does
not use them. The common way to do this is to connect CTS to RTS.
Failure to do so may result in loss of a performance on your
BlueStorm/SP RJ-11 adapter.
