Point
Figure 1. Static-safe work area
A static-safe work area consists of a grounded staticdissipative wrist strap and a work surface covered with
or composed of a grounded static-dissipative material.
The work surface drains electrical charges from conductive materials when the materials are placed on the surface. The grounded static-dissipative wrist strap drains
static charge from the person wearing the strap. Both
components ensure that static charges are drained at a
rate and current level that are safe. Both must be used
any time a person is handling any component.
Read Your Software Documentation
Your application software or Dialogic software release
(hereinafter collectively called “voice software”) may
have special installation or configuration instructions or
requirements. Be sure to read all software documentation
for any such instructions or requirements.
Installation Order
You can install the D/41D or D/21D and voice software
in any order, but Dialogic recommends that you install
the voice software first when running in a Windows 95
or Windows NT environment, and board first in any
other operating system environment.
Configuring the
Hardware
Configuring Multiple Voice Boards (JP7)
You can install up to 16 D/41D or D/21D boards in a
system. One and only one board in a system can have
the jumper on JP7 installed (see D/41D Physical
Description):
n One board: Leave the jumper on JP7 installed
(default).
n Multiple boards: Remove the jumper on JP7 from
all but one board.

n Work at a static-safe work area (see Figure 1).
Note: If you own a software utility that can determine
what IRQs and memory addresses are in use, run it to
help determine potential conflicts before installing the
D/41D or D/21D. Some voice software includes such a
software utility, or a separate board configuration utility,
to help with the D/41D or D/21D installation and
configuration.

Switch to set the offset address
and default line state
Each D/41D or D/21D and compatible voice board
installed in a computer must have a unique memory
address consisting of a base memory address segment
and an offset address.
Set the Base Memory Address Segment
(JP5 and JP6)
The default base memory address segment for the D/41D
and D/21D is D000H (Hexadecimal). Generally, you
should use the default unless there are more than eight
boards in your system or if other non-Dialogic devices in
your system must use the D000H segment. Select the
base address memory segment with jumpers JP5 and JP6
(see Figure 2) as follows:

Setting the Hardware Interrupt Level (JP1)
The default hardware interrupt level (IRQ) is IRQ 2/9;
IRQ 2 is used when the board is installed in an XT-type
PC and IRQ 9 is used with an AT-type PC.
Change the IRQ by moving the jumper on jumper block
JP1 (see Figure 2) to another IRQ setting if IRQ 2 or 9 is
in use by another device.
Note: Set every D/41D and D/21D board in the system
to the same IRQ level.
The default offset address for the D/41D and D/21D is
0000H. Each D/41D and D/21D board in your system
requires a unique address, so you must change the offset
address on every additional D/41D and D/21D board. If
you need to change an offset address, set the switches 1,
2, and 3 on SW1 (see Figure 2) as follows:

Setting the Initial Hook Switch State (SW1:4)
SW1 switch 4 (SW 1:4 in Figure 2) sets the initial hook
switch state for the D/41D and D/21D board. This
setting is active only when the PC is powered on but the
firmware has not yet been downloaded to the board.
If the initial hook switch state is set to on-hook (default)
the board presents an inbound call with a ring no answer
state. You can change the initial hook switch state to offhook to present a busy signal instead.
Installing the Hardware
1. Prepare a static-safe work area, turn off all power to
the system, and disconnect the system’s power cords
from electrical outlets.
2. Remove the PC cover.
3. Select an empty ISA expansion bus slot, and remove
the slot’s retaining screw and access coverplate.
Once the firmware is downloaded, the hook switch state
is set to on-hook, and may only be changed by the
application controlling the board.
4. Insert the board’s edge connector into the bus slot.
It is not necessary to set all D/41D or D/21D boards in
the system to the same default hook switch state.
Select a new slot and repeat steps 3–5 for each board
you are installing. Use an AEB cable to connect this
board with other boards (for example, Dialogic AMX/81
or DTI/124 T-1) in the system. Reinstall the PC cover
when finished.

Increasing Ring Detection Threshold Behind
a PBX (JP101–JP401)
If a board has problems detecting rings behind a PBX,
you can lower the ring detection threshold. To lower the
threshold on a channel-by-channel basis, install the
jumpers JP101–JP401 (see D/41D Physical Description)
as follows:
Channel 1
Channel 2
Channel 3
Channel 4

Note: A lower threshold may be too sensitive for
boards connected to the CO and cause false detection of
rings.
n
The D/21D supports one channel per RJ-14 jack.
The D/41D supports two channels per RJ-14
jack.
You can use an RJ-11 connector with the D/21D.
If you use an RJ-11 connector with the D/41D,
only the channel connected to contacts 2 and 3 of
the board’s RJ-14 jack can be accessed.
Connect one end of a terminated cable into the
RJ-14 jack on the board and the other end into a
wall jack. One terminated cable is required for
each jack.
A standard telephone will not function when
directly attached to the board’s RJ-14 jack.
After Installing the Hardware
n
n
Install the voice board software as described in the
documentation provided for the Dialogic software
release and operating system in use.
Test the boards using D40CHK.EXE or other
diagnostic utilities such as UDD (Universal
Dialogic Diagnostics) that came with the Dialogic
software release for the D/41D and D/21D.
4. While observing correct static-handling procedures,
disconnect power, cables, and remove the board from
the chassis.
5. Repack the board, observing correct static-handling
procedures. Place the board in an anti-static container
and then put it in a shipping carton using appropriate
packing material. Use the original shipping materials
if possible. Include diagnostic printouts (for example,
D40CHK) when applicable.
6. Write the RMA number on the outside of the box
you are shipping (for example, RMA #2973) and
send the package to the attention of the RMA
number assigned.
7. Ship the board to Dialogic at the following address.
Dialogic is not responsible for risk of loss or damage
in transit.
