Functional Description
The Model 9942A is a Universal Management Card in a plug-in card configuration compatible with the TKH
Security USA Series 9000 chassis. Figure 1 shows the general concept of how local and remote chassis are
gathered into a communications network so that software running on a PC may communicate with the chassis
and provide monitoring and management functions for the cards installed in the system.
FIGURE 1
The 9942A Management Card enables management of the TKH Security USA Series 9000 chassis using any of
the following:
 Serial (RS-232)-based 9911-NMS Software
 IP-based 9941-NMS Software
 Any third-party SNMP Network Manager (not included with the 9942A)
 A Javascript-Enabled Web Browser like Internet Explorer 6.0 (not included with the 9942A)
The 9900-NMS software package is not included with the card; it must be purchased separately.
The 9942A also provides the following additional features:
 Network configuration and other administrative functions using Command Line Interface (CLI) via serial
console port or remote telnet.
 Static and dynamic (BOOTP or DHCP) IP assignment
 Field upgrades of system software (via Ethernet or serial connection)

9942A Indicator, Connector, Dipswitch, and Jumper Locations
FIGURE 2
1. STATUS INDICATORS
 Serial Poll (SP): When illuminated green, indicates that a poll command from 9911-NMS Software
has been received.
 Serial Response (SR): When illuminated green, indicates that a poll response has been sent to
9911NMS Software.
 Network Management (NMS): When illuminated green, indicates management traffic (poll and
response) over Ethernet. This traffic comprises command and response packets for 9941-NMS
Software or SNMP Management Software.
 Status (ST): When illuminated red, indicates that the card is resetting or an error has occurred.
2. 10/100T ETHERNET PORT CONNECTOR AND INDICATORS
 Connector: This RJ45 connector supports bidirectional 10/100 Base-T Ethernet connections. Shielded
Category 5 cables must be used for 100Mbps connections.
 Full Duplex/Collision (FD/COLL): When illuminated solid yellow, indicates a full duplex
connection. When blinking, indicates collisions detected on a half duplex Ethernet link.
 Link/Activity (LINK/ACT): When illuminated solid green, indicates that communication has been
established with the network over the Ethernet interface. When blinking, indicates traffic on the
network.
3.
DATA PORT 1
(Two RJ12 connectors) This pair of RS485 2-wire (half-duplex) ports is used to chain multiple 9942A
cards operating with the 9911-NMS serial version software. They are wired in parallel so that the RS485
“bus” may be extended. See the manual section on “Set Up and Operation of the 9942A using 9911-NMS
Serial Management Software“ for details.
9
4.
Data Ports 2 and 3 (two RJ12 connectors) are RS232 ports. Both connectors are wired identically but
buffered separately. This allows either one of the ports to be connected to the PC running the 9911-NMS
Software. The other RS232 port can be used to chain another 9942A. Since RS232 supports only a pointto-point electrical connection, only one device may be connected to each of the RS232 ports.
5. CONSOLE PORT The Console Port (one RJ12 connector) is used to communicate with the 9942A using a
command line interface. This port is used to configure the network parameters for the 9942A (IP address,
subnet mask, etc.). It is also used to upgrade the system software and to upgrade the cards on the
chassis for SNMP management using the Management Upgrade Utility (MUU) Software. Please see the
“System Software Command Line Interface Reference” section for further details. Refer to the Console
Port Serial Connection diagram for details.
6. JP1
This jumper sets Data Port 1 to the Serial management mode. It should be left set in the SERIAL
MGMT position.
7. SWITCH S0
This 2-position dipswitch is reserved for future use. Set all switches to the OFF position.
8. SWITCH S1
This 8-position dipswitch is reserved for future use. Set all switches to the OFF position.
9. SWITCH S3
This 4-position dipswitch is reserved for future use. Set all switches to the OFF position.
10. SWITCH S4
This 6-position dipswitch sets the Chassis ID address for operation in Serial Mode. This is required when
using the 9911-NMS Software. Refer to the “Set Up and Operation of the 9942A using 9911-NMS Serial
Management Software “ section for details on setting this switch.
11. SWITCH S6
This 2-position dipswitch enables and disables RS485 terminators for Data Port 1, the RS485 Data Port.
Refer to the “Set Up and Operation of the 9942A using 9911-NMS Serial Management Software“ section
for details on terminating RS485 connections.
12. SWITCH S7
This 2-position dipswitch is used to configure Data Port 1 pinouts. Both positions should be set ON for
normal RS485 operation, setting both Data Port 1 connectors to RS485 2-wire mode operation
10
Set Up and Operation of the 9942A Using 9911-NMS Serial
Management Software
9911-NMS software monitors and manages cards on one or more TKH Security USA Series 9000 chassis
equipped with 9942As via a serial communications bus connecting the chassis and a PC. This serial
management system has the following configuration requirements:
 Each chassis to be managed should have only one 9942A OR a 9911 installed.
 Each 9942A or 9911 must be assigned a unique chassis ID number (refer to Table 1). Refer to the 9911
Manual for details on set up of that card.
 The bootloader software configuration is required if you want the ability to update the
system software in the 9942A remotely over Ethernet. If you choose not to configure the
bootloader, you will not be able to perform remote upgrades.You can, however, locally
update the system software over a serial connection to the 9942A console port. Refer to the
manual section on “Configuration of the Bootloader.”
SET UP AND OPERATION CONSISTS OF THESE STEPS:
1. Set the configuration switches on the 9942A cards to be used in the system. Refer to the Dipswitch and
Jumper Settings section below.
2. Install each 9942A card in its respective chassis.
3. Make the necessary RS232/RS485 connections for the management bus (chassis to chassis and chassis
to PC as required). Refer to Figure 3 for an example of how to connect multiple chassis together to form
the bus structure.
4. Install the 9911-NMS software on the management PC per the instructions included with the software.
5. Start the 9911-NMS software on the PC. You may need to modify the COM port settings on the software
to match the COM port used on the PC to communicate with the communications BUS. This can be done
via the Splash (first) screen that appears when the software starts or from a menu selection in the
software’s main screen. Note: When first starting up a system, it may be simpler to separately set up
6.
7.
8.
9.
and check each 9942A in a system with the management software prior to connecting them all together
in the bus structure. Then add chassis one at a time into the system, checking each time that the new
chassis appears in the software display.
From the Menu bar at the top, navigate to ChassisSearch Chassis. The 9911-NMS Software will poll each
address from 1-63 and show a tree-type display of the 9911 and 9942A cards that are connected to the
bus.
At this point you can double click on each chassis icon to bring up the chassis information.
You can now manage all cards in the TKH Security USA chassis. You can also retrieve information about
the 9942A itself.
Refer to the online help in the 9911-NMS Software for further details.

DIPSWITCH AND JUMPER SETTINGS FOR SERIAL MODE
Make sure JP1 is in the SERIAL MGMT position.
FIGURE 5 — JP1 JUMPER
Note that the jumper cap is placed over the top two pins, in the SERIAL MGMT position.
Make sure switches S0, S1, and S3 have all positions set to OFF.
RS485 TERMINATIONS, SWITCH S6
Terminating RS485 correctly is important for the proper operation of RS485 links. The RS485 used with this
system is 2-wire half duplex and should be terminated on both ends of the daisy chain bus. Each end of each
electrical section of the logical bus should be terminated. If you have a logical bus separated by an optical link
as in the example shown in Figure 6, the bus is extended by optical link to a set of remote chassis and the
terminators on both ends of the remote bus and on both ends of the local bus must be terminated. Dipswitch
S6, positions 1 and 2, are the terminators for the 9942A and should be ON to terminate the bus. Never star
configure your wiring, always daisy chain. Note in Figure 6 that the last 9942A converts the RS485 bus into
RS232 for the computer; an external converter is not required.
14
FIGURE 6 — DAISY CHAINED RS485 TERMINATION EXAMPLE
CHASSIS ID, SWITCH S4
Set the chassis ID. The chassis ID may be any number between 1 and 63 (0 is not allowed). To reduce the
time the software spends finding the chassis when first started, it is recommended that you set the address of
the 9942A (and any 9911s) starting at address 1 and increasing sequentially. Each chassis must have a
unique ID. Refer to Table 1 for the settings of switches S4-1 through S4-6.

Set Up and Operation of the 9942A Using 9941-NMS Ethernet
Management Software
9941-NMS software monitors and manages cards on one or more TKH Security USA Series 9000 chassis
equipped with 9942As via an Ethernet connection between 9942A-equipped chassis and a PC. This Ethernet
management system has the following configuration requirements:



Each chassis to be managed should have only one 9942A card installed.
Each 9942A card must be assigned a unique IP address.
The bootloader software configuration is required if you want the ability to update the
system software in the 9942A remotely over Ethernet. If you choose not to configure the
bootloader, you will not be able to perform remote upgrades.You can, however, locally
update the system software over a serial connection to the 9942A console port. Refer to the
manual section on “Configuration of the Bootloader.”
SET UP AND OPERATION CONSISTS OF THESE STEPS:
1. Set the configuration switches on the 9942A card. Refer to the Dipswitch and Jumper Settings section
below.
2. Install the first 9942A in its chassis.
3. Connect a serial cable between the console port of the 9942A and a PC/laptop’s COM port. See the
section “9942A Indicator, Connector, Dipswitch, and Jumper Locations” for details.
4. Open a serial communication program (e.g., Hyperterminal, Procomm, Tera Term Pro, etc.) on the
PC/laptop. Configure the serial port for 38400 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit and no flow
control.
5. Power on the chassis. After the boot up messages stop on the serial terminal, hit ‘Enter’ a couple of
times. You should see a ‘$’ prompt. This indicates that the system software is loaded and running.
6. Configure the network parameters for the system software. See “System Software Command Line




The TKH Security USA Series 9000 chassis SNMP setup has the following configuration requirements:
Each chassis to be managed should have only one 9942A card installed.
Each 9942A card must be assigned a unique Ethernet IP address.
If the system that you are going to manage is an existing system, you will need to run the Management
Upgrade Utility (MUU) to configure all the cards in your chassis to operate in the SNMP environment.
Refer to the section on “Management Upgrade Utility (MUU)” for details.
The bootloader software configuration is required if you want the ability to update the
system software in the 9942A remotely over Ethernet. If you choose not to configure the
bootloader, you will not be able to perform remote upgrades.You can, however, locally
update the system software over a serial connection to the 9942A console port. Refer to the
manual section on “Configuration of the Bootloader.”
SET UP AND OPERATION CONSISTS OF THESE STEPS:
1. Set the configuration switches on the 9942A card. Refer to the Dipswitch and Jumper Settings section
below.
2. Install the first 9942A in its chassis.

2.
3.
from ‘.txt’ to something that your SNMP manager recognizes. For example, when using SNMPc, you
should change MIB filenames to OPTC-SMI.mib and OPTC-CHASSIS-MIB.mib.
Create an SNMP-entity node in the manager to identify the TKH Security USA Series 9000 chassis (with
the 9942A card) that you wish to manage. Enter node properties such as IP address, SNMP version
(SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c) and community string (“public”).
Browse the standard MIBs under MIB-II and the various TKH Security USA MIB objects using the MIB
browser tools included in your SNMP manager software. You can view data items individually or in tabular
format.

Management Upgrade using the Management Upgrade Utility
(MUU)
The Management Upgrade Utility (MUU) is a tool that programs proprietary management data in the
nonvolatile memory of various Series 9000 chassis compatible cards. The MUU is required to be run on a
Series 9000 chassis if any of the following apply:



You intend to manage your Series 90000 chassis using SNMP or a web browser
You currently manage your system using 9911-NMS/9941-NMS software and wish to also manage your
system using an SNMP manager or a web browser. After running the MUU, the cards in your Series 9000
chassis can be managed by all management software, i.e., 9911-NMS, 9941-NMS, SNMP manager
software and web browser
You need to update the management data already programmed in the Series 9000 cards to their latest
versions.
NOTES
1. See the MUU Release Notes for detailed installation, operation, and compatibility
information.
2. It is recommended that you shut down any management software (i.e., 9911-NMS, 9941NMS, SNMP manager software or web browser session) before performing a management
upgrade.
The steps to perform a management upgrade are:
1. Plug in all the cards that need to have a management upgrade performed into an Optelecom-NKF Series
9000 chassis.
2. Plug in the 9942A card in the same chassis.
3. The MUU can connect to the 9942A using the serial console port or an Ethernet connection.
a. If you plan to use the serial console port, connect a serial cable between the console port of the 9942A
and the PC/laptop’s COM port. See the section on “9942A Indicator, Connector, Dipswitch and Jumper
Locations” for details.
b. If you plan to use an Ethernet connection, connect your PC/laptop to the same network as the 9942A
using an Ethernet cable.
4. Apply power to the chassis.
5. Start MUU on your PC/Laptop.
6. Bring up the Chassis Connection Setup dialog by selecting Chassis->Connect. Configure the connection
type (serial or TCP/IP) and the corresponding connection parameters. Click OK.
7. The MUU connects to the chassis and displays all the cards in the chassis in a tree format. Right click on
the chassis node and select Program Cards. The MUU programs each card (a check mark appears next to
each card as it is programmed).
8. Right click on the chassis node and select Disconnect to disconnect from the chassis. You can now safely
close the MUU application.

Field Upgrade of System Software
The 9942A provides the capability of updating the system software in the field. The update is performed by
communicating with the 9942A bootloader software via the serial console port or via TFTP over Ethernet.
CAUTION: The following procedures should be performed very carefully and exactly as described. Do not
power cycle the 9942A while flash programming is under way. If you are unsure about any of the steps
described, please contact customer support at TKH Security USA.
REMOTE SOFTWARE UPDATE VIA TFTP
This procedure requires a properly configured bootloader. Please refer to “Configuration of
Bootloader.”
The following steps assume that a 9942A is operational and available on the network:
1. Rename the new system software image file to ‘system’ and place it in the root folder of your TFTP
server.
2. Open a terminal emuulator program with telnet capability (like Tera Term Pro or Procomm).
 Set IP adress of target to
<IP address of 9942A system software>
 Set port number using command: net consoleport <port>
 Set the terminal settings to CR+LF for transmit and enable Local Echo . Hit enter key.
3. You should see the ‘$’ prompt indicating that the system CLI is ready.
4. Enter command ‘autoboot off’. This command prevents the system software from loading automatically
when the 9942A is reset.
5. Enter command ‘reset’ to perform software reset. You will lose the telnet connection.
6. Wait for a few minutes and telnet into the 9942A using the command:
telnet <IP address of 9942A bootloader> 9000
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.
Note: The IP address of the bootloader and system software should always be the same.
You should see the ‘#’ prompt indicating that the bootloader CLI is ready.
Enter command ‘net_cfg’ and verify that the server IP address matches that of your TFTP server. If not
change the server IP address to match that of your TFTP server.
Enter command:
load –m tftp –h <your_tftp_server_ip> system
After the file is loaded, you should see information about the entry point and length of the downloaded
image. An example is:
# load –m tftp –h 192.168.0.2 system
Entry point: 0x00040000, address range: 0x00040000-0x000ea244
#
Enter command ‘fdelete system’ to delete old system software image in flash
Enter command ‘fsave system’ to program newly downloaded system software image in flash.
Enter command ‘autoboot on’ to enable autobooting of system software.
Enter command ‘reset’ and close the telnet session.
Wait a few minutes and telnet back into the 9942A using the following telnet parameters:
IP address of 9942A system software, net console port
Enter command ‘version’ and check the system software version information.
26
SOFTWARE UPDATE VIA SERIAL (XMODEM/YMODEM)
The following steps assume that a 9942A is operational and available on the network:
1. Rename the new system software image file to ‘system’ and place it in the local folder in your PC/laptop
from which you will connect to the 9942A.
2. Use a terminal program with serial communication capability like Procomm or Tera Term Pro to connect
to the console port of the 9942A (38400 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, no flow control).
3. You should see the ‘$’ prompt indicating that the system CLI is ready.
4. Enter command ‘reset’ to perform software reset. Monitor the boot messages and press ‘Ctrl-C’ when
prompted to access the bootloader CLI. You should see the ‘#’ prompt indicating that the bootloader CLI
is ready.
5. Enter command ‘load –m xmodem’. Now send the file ‘system’ to the 9942A. You can use Xmodem or
Ymodem protocol to transfer the file. (For example, in Tera Term Pro, use File ->Transfer ->XMODEM
>Send to transfer the file.) Note: If you wait too long to initiate the transfer the load command in the
9942A may time out. In this case, repeat Step 5.
The program will take a few minutes to download. After the download is completed, you should see a
message similar to the following:
# load -m xmodem
CCCCC Entry point: 0x00040000, address range: 0x00040000-0x000ea244
xyzModem - CRC mode, 5998(SOH)/0(STX)/0(CAN) packets, 5 retries
#
7. Enter command ‘fdelete system’ to delete old system software image in flash
8. Enter command ‘fsave system’ to program newly downloaded system software image in flash.
9. Enter command ‘reset’ and allow the 9942A boot process to run to completion. When boot messages
stop, hit ‘Enter’ a couple of times to see the ‘$’ prompt.
10. Enter command ‘version’ and check the system software version information.

27
System Software Command Line Interface
To access the system CLI, simply connect your serial terminal program (e.g., Tera Term Pro, Procomm, etc.)
to the console port, set the COM port settings to 38400 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit , no parity bits and no
flow control. Hit Enter a couple of times. You should see the “$” prompt indicating that the system CLI is
ready for your commands.
You can access the system CLI using the following remote telnet command:
telnet <IP address> <net console port>:
Where IP address is the address of the system software,
net console port is the port on which the 9942A telnet server listens for client connections.
You can close a telnet connection by closing the telnet client or typing “exit” or “quit”.
NETWORK CONFIGURATION COMMANDS
net mode [static|bootp|dhcp]
– get/set net mode
This command is used to get/set the network mode. You can choose among static, BOOTP, or DHCP modes.
When static is specified, you should set the various network parameters (IP address & mask, broadcast
address, gateway address, server address) using the appropriate net commands (described later). If you
select BOOTP or DHCP mode, then you do not need to set the network parameters manually. Instead you
should set up a BOOTP/DHCP server in your network. If setting up a BOOTP server, provide the MAC address
of the 9942A to the BOOTP server. You can get the MAC address by using the ‘net_cfg’ bootloader command.
NOTE: The value specified needs to be saved to flash using ‘net cfg save’.
net ip [<a.b.c.d>]
– get/set IP address of 9942A
NOTE: The value specified needs to be saved to flash using ‘net cfg save’.

to accept your commands.
NETWORK CONFIGURATION COMMANDS
enable_bootp true|false
– Enable bootp/dhcp protocol to get network params
When enable_bootp is set to true, the bootloader tries to get its network parameters (IP address and mask,
gateway and server IP addresses) via BOOTP/DHCP (both protocols are tried). For BOOTP/DHCP to work,
you should have/setup a BOOTP or DHCP server in the network. For BOOTP, you need to provide the BOOTP
server with the MAC address of the 9942A. The MAC address can be obtained by executing the ‘net_cfg’ or
‘net_status’ command (see below). The BOOTP/DHCP server should also provide a server address you want
the ability to update 9942A software using TFTP download. The bootloader can download code updates
using the server address using the TFTP protocol. The server address should correspond to the machine
running a TFTP server.
When enable_bootp is set to false, the bootloader uses IP parameters set manually by you using the
commands described below.
NOTE: The manually set IP parameters are ignored when the enable_bootp parameter is set to true.
set_ip <a.b.c.d>
– Set my IP address
Sets the IP address of the bootloader. This IP address can be the same as that of the system software.
NOTE: This command has no effect when enable_bootp is set to true.
