Chapter 1
EIA-232 asynchronous interface
General EIA-232 cable information
Use this information to determine the proper EIA-232 cable requirements
for your application.
Physical cable characteristics
EIA-232 serial interface cables should be shielded, low capacitance cables,
designed specifically for serial data transmission.
Grounding requirements
EIA-232 interface cables should have the shield grounded at both ends of
the cable. Digi recommends Chassis Ground, available on the shell of
Digi's DB-25 connectors, and pin 4 of a 10-pin RJ-45 connector.
Environmental requirements
While good shielding provides reasonable protection against “noise”
(electromagnetic interference, or EMI), cables should still be routed away
from noise sources wherever possible. Avoid laying cables in close
proximity to transformers, generators, motors, fluorescent lights, etc.
Data rate information
The maximum data rate that can be used for EIA-232 connections is
primarily determined by the quality and length of the interconnecting cable.
The quality of the cable (for transmission purposes) is generally
determined by the capacitance per foot rating of the cable.
The following table gives the recommended maximum cable length for a
given data rate. Longer cables may be implemented at your discretion.
Note that not all Digi products support all of the data rates listed below.

80 feet
230,400
40 feet
460,800
20 feet
921,600
10 feet
The maximum length is the amount of cable that is connected to a
Digi supplied interconnect device, such as Quad or Octa cables and
boxes.
The maximum length is based on a cable rated at the following:
- 12.3 pF/foot, conductor to conductor
- 22.4 pF/foot conductor to shield
In situations where low-capacitance cable is unavailable, or very
long cable runs are required, “short-haul” modems can be used to
increase the effective range of the EIA-232 interface. Short-haul
modems are similar to standard modems, except that they are
connected directly to each other via a cable instead of going through
a telephone circuit.
Use only externally-powered short-haul modems with Digi products.
Resolving transmission errors
If transmission errors occur, follow this procedure to determine the cause of
the problem:
1. Reduce the baud rate.
2. Reduce the cable length.
3. Use a cable with a lower capacitance per foot rating.

This cable is a three-wire null modem cable. Transmitted data on one end
of the cable is connected to received data at the other end, and vice versa.
The male DB-25 end can be plugged directly into most serial terminals and
printers without any adapters. The female DB-25 end plugs directly into
any Digi DB-25 serial port.

DB-25 4-Wire hardware handshaking (DTR) cable
The following four-wire cable is often sufficient for an older terminal, printer,
or other DTE device configured for DTR (hardware) flow control. However,
some terminals and printers may use a signal other than DTR for flow
control. In addition, some terminals and printers may have other cable
requirements. Consult your terminal or printer manual for this information.
For more universal compatibility, use a full-wired DB-25 terminal/printer
cable.

DB-25 modem cable
To connect a DB-25 equipped asynchronous adapter to a modem, use a
standard “straight-through” cable. A straight-through cable has a DB-25
female connector at the Digi end, and a DB-25 male connector at the
modem end. All 25 pins are connected, 1 to 1, 2 to 2, 3 to 3, etc. Use
shielded cable, and connect pin 1 of each connector to the cable shield.

10-pin RJ-45 plugs may be difficult to obtain in the retail market. Therefore,
most Digi device driver software incorporates an optional feature called
ALTPIN, which swaps the logical functions of DSR (Data Set Ready) with
DCD (Data Carrier Detect).
When ALTPIN is enabled, DCD becomes available on pin 1 of an 8-pin RJ45 connector (equivalent to pin 2 of a 10-pin connector).

EIA-422 asynchronous interface
General EIA-422 cable information
This section applies to Digi products equipped with EIA-422 asynchronous
interfaces.
Physical cable characteristics
EIA-422 interface cables should be shielded twisted-pair cables. Each
signal requires two leads (one twisted pair of wires) to complete a balanced
voltage digital circuit. The shield should be connected to the Chassis
Ground of the devices at both ends of the interface cable.
Interface signaling
The EIA-422 interface provides four signals:
• Transmitted Data (TxD)
• Received Data (RxD)
• Request To Send (RTS)
• Clear To Send (CTS).
The functions of these signals are identical to their EIA-232 counterparts.
Grounding requirements
EIA-422 interface cables must provide a ground path between the devices
to be connected. This ensures the integrity of data transfers and control
signals. This should be connected to the Chassis Ground of each device.
Digi recommends using the cable shield for this purpose.
Chapter 6
EIA-422 asynchronous interface
29
Digi EIA-422 connector wiring
A terminal, a serial printer, or a serial port for another computer usually
functions as a DTE device. A Digi adapter is also a DTE device. To connect
a DTE device to another DTE device a null modem cable or adapter must
be used.
Two wires (one twisted pair) are required for each signal: a positive lead
(“+”), and a negative lead (“-”). The “+” leads at one end of the cable must
be connected to the “+” leads at the other end, and the “-” leads at one end
must be connected to the “-” leads at the other end.
Caution: Incorrect wiring could result in damage to the connected devices.

EIA-485 asynchronous interface
General EIA-485 cable information
This section applies to Digi products equipped with EIA-485 asynchronous
interfaces.
Physical cable characteristics
EIA-485 interface cables should be shielded twisted-pair cables with a
maximum of 4000 feet in length. Each signal requires two leads (one
twisted pair of wires) to complete a balanced voltage digital circuit. The
shield should be connected to the Chassis Ground of the devices at both
ends of the interface cable.
Interface signaling
The EIA-485 interface provides four signals: Transmitted Data (TxD),
Received Data (RxD), Request To Send (RTS) and Clear To Send (CTS).
The functions of these signals are identical to their EIA-232 counterparts.
Grounding requirements
EIA-485 interface cables must provide a ground path between the devices
to be connected. This ensures the integrity of data transfers and control
signals. This should be connected to the Chassis Ground of each device.
Digi recommends using the cable shield for this purpose.
Termination information
A DIP switch controls the termination of many Digi devices. Termination is
recommended in a multi-drop line for the last networked device.
Termination also biases the line.
Most Digi devices use the #4 switch to control termination. When the switch
is down, termination is off and there is no termination. To set termination on
the device, move the #4 switch to the up position.
Check your Digi device for its ohm rating; 100 ohms is the nominal setting
in Digi products.

Digi EIA-485 connector wiring
Two wires (one twisted pair) are required for each signal, a positive lead
(“+”), and a negative lead (“-”). The “+” leads at one end of the cable must
be connected to the “+” leads at the other end, and the “-” leads at one end
must be connected to the “-” leads at the other end.
Caution: Incorrect wiring could result in damage to the connected devices.

DataFire® 2000 sync adapter
Chapter 7
Introduction
The DataFire® SYNC 2000 adapter is an intelligent, high performance
synchronous communications adapter that is available in versions for
PCI bus and Compact PCI (cPCI) bus-compatible systems. The basic
design comes with a Motorola MPC860 PowerQUICC™ (Quad Integrated
Communications Controller), with an integrated PowerPC™ RISC
processor providing four SCCs on the four-port adapter and two SCCs on
the two-port adapter.
DataFire SYNC 2000 adapters offer a Universal Interface Bus (UIB)
capable of supporting a different interface on each port. The UIB
automatically configures the electrical interface of a port based on the type
of Digi cable connected to the port. That is, you can select an interface type
for a port just by connecting the appropriate cable between the adapter and
the peripheral device. You can use any combination of interface types to
connect up to two peripherals to the two-port version, or up to four
peripherals to the four-port version.
Features
The DataFire SYNC 2000 adapter has the following features:
• High-speed synchronous communications ports
• Automatic cable detection
•

SurgeBlock™ surge protection
All major electrical interfaces are available as UIB cable options,
including X.21, V.28 (V.24)/EIA-232, V.35/RS-449, V.36, EIA-422,
and EIA-530
Available with an optional PowerPC 603 processor, 4 megabytes of
RAM, and Frame Relay or X.25 public data network protocols
The DataFire SYNC 2000 adapter has gained homologation
acceptance for most European countries
DataFire® 2000 sync adapter

Cabling information
Each Digi-provided cable has a 68-pin Ultra SCSI connector on one end,
which attaches to a port on the Universal Interface Bus. The other end of
the cable will provide signals according to the interface standards.
Each port on the SYNC 2000 adapter can be configured to use any one of
several cables. Cables are available as V.35, EIA-530/EIA-422, X.21, and
EIA-232/V.28. The cable type is automatically detected by the
Universal Interface Bus.
If you require multiple cables of one type, you may order additional cables
from Digi. To extend the length of a Digi cable, use standard interface
cabling between the end of Digi's cable and the peripheral.
Recommendations
•
Digi recommends shielded cables (15 pF or less capacitance per
foot) for all installations.
•
The FCC requires the use of shielded cables to comply with
EMI/RFI emission limits. In addition, cables that run long distances
or through electrically noisy areas are subject to voltage surges that
can cause data errors or equipment damage. EIA-232 specifies a
maximum cable length of 50 feet. If you run cables farther than 50
feet, you increase the risk of surge damage and data loss.
(However, using shielded cable of 10-15 pF capacitance per foot
lessens the risk of data errors somewhat.)
When routing cables, do not run them parallel to AC wiring or on top
of fluorescent light ballasts.
Bundling several EIA-232 cables is acceptable.

EIA 232 Information
RS-232 flow control primer
Hardware flow control uses pins RTS and CTS to gate flow back and
forth between to connected serial devices. The Data Terminal Equipment
(DTE) device uses RTS to start and stop flow from the Data
Communications Equipment (DCE) device, and the DCE device uses CTS
to gate flow from the DTE device. This method is popular for higher-speed
connections, where flow control reaction time is more critical. It is also
popular where the data stream is such that embedded flow-control
characters cannot be tolerated by the protocol running on the link. The cost
of this method is running two more wires in the cable.
Software flow control uses special START (XON) and STOP (XOFF)
characters embedded in the data stream to gate flow. In other words, the
receiving device sends a STOP character, typically Control-S, to the
sending device to halt flow. It then later sends a START character, typically
Control-Q, to resume flow. This flow-control method is preferred for slower
links running a protocol that supports embedded flow-control characters,
and because it requires just three wires for the link to function:
Receive (RxD), Transmit (TxD), and Ground (GND).

Fiber optic cable specifications and source
CSP, Inc. can provide you with reliable fiber assemblies certified to function properly with DigiBoard
equipment.
Fiber is the best solution for transmitting large amounts of data over long distances at high speeds
without interference
or lost data caused by outside factors such as weather, radio frequency signals or other electrical noise.
The ST connector provides these features as well as strong performance and reliability characteristics.
The ST connector
also helps maintain close tolerances when mating connectors in an adapter. The ST connector is easily
recognizable because
of its bayonet style attachment/detachment mechanism.
The ST also offers superior loss characteristics because the ferrules are made of stainless steel or
ceramic and the connector
has a spring-loaded mating system that exerts consistent pressure on the ferrule tip when inserted in an
active device or an adjoining
fiber. These impressive characteristics have allowed the ST connector to become the most widely used
connector in Local
Area Networks (LANs).
CSP fiber optic assemblies are made at the length you specify with or without an optional pulling eye
to meet your individual requirements.
CSP assemblies are made with FDDI grade fiber and tested to meet EIA/FOTP specifications. CSP
complies with the requirements
of the 1990 National Electrical Code (NEC) for Optical Fiber Cables - Article 770.

Difference between DTE and DCE
One of the most misunderstood areas of RS-232 communications is the
difference between Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) and Data
Communications Equipment (DCE). DTE is typically either a dumb terminal
or the serial port on a computer/workstation. DCE is typically a modem,
Channel Service Unit/Data Service Unit (CSU/DSU), or another data
communications unit. This is all most people need to know about these
terms and their meanings.
When signal definitions and direction become involved, these terms can
get more complicated. For example, when a unit transmits data, it is sent
out of the unit. However, in terms of DCE, this transmitted data becomes
an input signal. This is because the specification for data transmission is
written from the perspective of the DTE end of the link. As another, the
Receive Data signal is an input to DTE, but an output from DCE.
Therefore, a straight-through one-to-one cable is all that is necessary
between a modem and a standard DTE serial port. However, if it desired to
connect two DTE ports together, it is necessary to simulate a pair of DCE
devices, typically modems that would normally be between the two DTE
devices. To perform this simulation, a null-modem device or cable is used.

Altpin should be turned off when using this cable.
●
This cable utilizes the DTR signal of the terminal/printer for hardware flow control (RTS/CTS).
●
Okidata printers may use SSD (pin 11) instead of DTR (pin 20) on Term/Prn DB25 side of above
diagram. If this is the case, the printer should be set to SSD+.
